I decided to backtrack a couple of months simply because I forgot to add these pictures.
Sammy's first day of preschool. I still can't believe I have a kid old enough to be in school. He loves it and can't wait to go. His favorite thing is show and tell. It's been a good thing for both him and Dean. They never are apart. Dean enjoys his alone time with his mom and Sammy enjoys his special time to do his own thing.
Enjoying Jim's ranch. Can you tell Dean hasn't had enough sleep?
Sasu is getting huge. He weighs over 80lbs. now. Sam has really gotten into training Sasu with the help of his brother. He has built jumps for him. It's crazy how high he can jump.
The boys on the 4 wheeler. That is all they want to do at the ranch.
My parents planned a 3 day trip to Disneyland. We had the best time. The kids got to spend time with my mom and dad. They were also thrilled to see their two cousins Gracie and Gainer. We had a great time and were sad to see the trip go so fast. The first night my mom took the kids to Build A Bear at Disneyland. They kids still take them everywhere. Sammy even took his to show and tell today. Dean built an Eeyoredinosaur and Sammy built a Spider man doggy. The kids did great on the airplane. They loved looking out the window. They also got a kick out of the little bathroom.
Sammy was just tall enough to go on all the rides. He did not like the kid rides because he said they were too scary, but he loved Thunder Mountain and Splash Mountain. Dean thought it was so cool to see Mickey. His favorite show is Mickey Mouse Club House. He couldn't stop smiling at Mickey. We got to Disneyland right at opening. The kids did great. We made it until about 7:00 each night. The second the boys got into bed they were out. My parents got Dean this Goofy hat. He wore it the whole time.
It was great to see my parents. It's hard to be away from them all the time. My cutest niece Gracie. She is going to be 6 in December. They boys miss her the most. She was like a little mother to them. My sister Rachel. We went on a raft ride at about 6:00. She got soaked and was freezing the rest of the night. The new Woody ride was really cute. Sammy loved shooting at all the targets. Dean is driving his car.
We went to Cold Stone the other night. Dean was enjoying his cotton candy ice cream with gummy bears. We went to Disneyland enjoying the 70's weather and came home to snow. I was dying but the kids didn't mind. Dean loved riding in the bus. They kept singing, "The wheels on the bus..." I was lucky to get some picture out of Sam.
Hopefully this made up for my lazy last couple of months.
We ran the Provo half marathon last weekend. These are my faithful running partners. Thanks Natalie for pushing me.
Dean loves his dog Sasu. You can see me just about ready to cross the finish line. It was really fun to have Sam and the kids there cheering me on. It made the finish that much better. My good friend Paula. We used to live next t0 each other when we went to BYU.
Sam took the kids to Lagoon for his dad's company party. I wish I could have been there to see them enjoy the rides. Their cute cousin Charly. Our good friends had puppies about 7 weeks ago. The boys beg to go over and see them. This boy puppy is Dean's favorite. Dean would not let poor Sarge go. I was with Liz trying to shop. The kids found many ways to entertain themselves.
The kids celebrating my 25th birthday. Sammy loves birthday's more than anything in the world. Sam was pretty excited about me being 25. I am with Darbie (Mikey's girlfriend) and my sister-in-law Lizzy. I know, I can't believe I am in my mid 2o's. I had a great birthday though. Sam took me to sushi, which I loved and later went shoppinng. I had a great couple of days.
Us at Lake Powell. Our family pictures never really turn out that great. Have you seen the wake kite yet? It was pretty cool to see the air these boys were getting. Keep in mind Sam's foot is still broken. The boys gathering their candy after smacking away at the horse. We took the kids to Kangaroo Zoo. We miss having Steven and Luke here. The boys have a lot of fun together. Me and some girlfriends celebrating a girls night.
The boys loved the water weenie. Dean was so funny. He never really laughed or smiled during the ride, but when it was time to get off he threw a tantrum because he wanted to go more. Sam with Sammy surfing again. Sam with Dean. Even I caught a few good waves.
My boater boys. Dean likes to pretend like he is a lion. Being a mom and having these two boys are the best.
Our best little hamster Max died. The kids were so sad. I let them decorate his box and they later helped daddy bury him in the backyard. The kids tell everyone he is in a box in heaven with President Hinkley. I think the boys spent the most time on the jet ski's. Sam let them drive and they went fast. The girls. Isn't Anna the cutest? She is only 10 months and has hair past her back. The boys love their aunt Lizzy. This face sums up our whole trip.
Sam and I met at BYU-I and have been married for 7 years in August. We both graduated from BYU. I graduated in Elementary Education and Sam in History. He also received his MBA from the University of Utah and is currently working at a skin care company called Skin Care RX as the VP of marketing. We bought a house two years ago in Bountiful Utah and our 2 boys Sammy and Dean are loving it because of the big backyard. These 2 boys are the best things that have ever happened to us. We love them and they bring lots of laughs and smiles. Enjoy our Blog.
