summer fun

Cousin Ryan & Abby are fun to make up plays with.
Cousin Ryan & Abby are fun to climb trees with.
grandpa and hunter heading down the water slide
We love having family in town...we can do so many fun things!


He calls her "my baby" and is so sweet when he holds her. I love this picture and how they are both gazing into each others eyes.
While my mom was here he was obsessed with getting her reading glasses out and wearing them. Now since she is gone he found Mr. potato glasses and wearing them while working on the computer , just like grandma would do.

First school bus ride

Cole was VERY sad (screaming & crying) that his brother got on the bus without him.
Hunter and Matthew(our neighbor) ready to go ride the bus
Walking up to the bus stop
waiting for the bus just outside our neighborhood

These boys had no fear of getting on the bus....they were like "see ya"


He was SO excited to find his desk with his name and all the papers.
Mission Meadows Elementary School(couldn't fit it all in the pic)
pulling a Hunter
Checking his fly

I just can't believe Hunter is in school. A few months ago he would get upset when we mentioned him starting school, he did NOT want to go. He said he would miss us. Well time is a good thing...he changed his mind about a month ago that he was excited to go and a few week ago started counting down the days. He is really enjoying going to school and the best part is his good friend our neighbor is in his same class. So here's to a good year of learning and growing for HUNTER!!!

3 weeks old

My friend in the ward wanted to come met Saige and I needed some adult conversation. While she was there she pull out her camera and took some wonderful photos of us. It makes me want to have a better camera so I can take such good quality shots of our kids in our everyday life. Thank you Jessica!!!!
