Brandon and Kelly's Wedding

This was so great. I didn't think we were going to be able to afford to come back up for the wedding when we moved, then we were. I was so happy! They had a beautiful wedding, I got to help set up the morning of that was so great. Jackson was a ring bearer and Abagayle a flower girl. It was great because the dresses the two flower girls wore were the same dresses Emily and Amanda wore in my wedding, they fit perfect. My brother looked so handsome and thrilled that day. Kelly was beautiful of course. My mom and I spent almost a whole day looking for a dress for Lorelei to wear that day that would match in the pictures. Hard to find black, white and red in July. Thank you Gymboree :) The kids loved being a part of the day. They made a great couple, they are perfect for each other.

Abagayle got her first manicure. One of many I am sure

My Posse's on Broadway

So judge if you will, we listen to my posse's on broadway (the kids and I). They love it, I love it. While listening one day Jackson said what is Dick's. Excuse me oh no, this can't happen, you may not live in WA anymore but you were born there we must fix this. So while at home we went to get some Dick's burgers and shakes, on broadway of course. Brandon's family came and Letitia met us there, then showed us a cool park around the corner to play at while we finished our fabulous food.

Road Trip Time

So of course on the way up to Seattle we had to have a contest at the rest stops to see who could stuff the most grapes in their mouth. If you don't do it you are missing out. So fun! The kids love it!

Hogle Zoo

The end of July we made a trek home for my brothers wedding the end of the month. We started the trip starting in SLC going to the zoo and picking up Jessica at Tim and Corinna's. We had a great day. It was hot and humid but so fun! Thanks to the Gunters again for letting us crash at your pad and head out so early the next morning for the next leg. We love you, hurry and get back to Seattle. Sorry for the sidebar. Back to the business at hand..the zoo.

How big are you yard apes? Sierra is so adorable all I wanted to do was hold her but it was so hot and muggy John chillin in the shade.
Taking a ride on the animals Brandon took this for James, thought I would post it cause it's funny. There were others too but I will spare us all.
You got to go up top and see the giraffes up close. Can you see Lorelei and Jessica

So hot and tired, must have a strawberry break

Silly Nights

We had a great family fun night with Joe and Katie, we played glow mini golf, video games and bumper cars. They got prizes from something there and this is how the night went.

We have the best friends ever, seriously!

4th of July 2010

okay so this post is 9 months late, however the date on the blog is correct :) I was getting misty eyed posting these pictures, guess that is why I should blog regularly. I miss our friends, the weather, the kids schools..on and on. anyways, we had a great time, since the 4th was on a sunday we had two days of fun! Sat we had treats and fireworks at the house then went downtown and watched a show with Joe and Katie. Then Sunday night we did fireworks with the neighbors across the street. So fun!
Abagayle loved to lite them Lorelei and pop its :) She liked to stomp on them.

The girls and Joe watching dad do some fireworks.
And more Yum!

My little fish! The kids have been living in the pool! It has been so nice having a pool so close and free :) Jackson can almost swim, he does such a great job! Lorelei always has to wear googles cause Jackson does.
Sidenote, so Lorelei calls Jackson JaJun and Abagayle Yahyale. so cute!
