Baby Hudson's blessing

After church, the blessing circle.My beautiful sister with Hudson
Outside eating "brunch"
Just enjoying a quiet moment with a sleeping Hudson! His hair is always straight up, no matter what i do!

Nothing sweeter than a sleeping baby!
Hudson, we love you so much!

As if the 4th of July weekend couldnt be any busier we decided to throw in a baby blessing as well. Might as well,right?!! It seemed like the perfect time to do it. Both our families were going to be here, so it just seemed right? We did a light brunch before the blessing:sticky buns(made by Tracy), fruit and dip, muffins and juice. It was actually really yummy! Both of our families traveled down from Arizona to participate in the blessing of our sweet Hudson. We were fortunate to have them both here.
I really wanted to write down the blessing so I wouldn't forget all the others. However, I have a 2 year old that tends to get separation anxiety when she sees her daddy leave to go anywhere. And when she saw her dad leaving to go bless Hudson she had a melt down! So I was a little busy and preoccupied keeping Ella busy and quiet. To say the least, I didn't get to write down the blessing and totally forget most of it. The one part I do remember is Tyler blessing Hudson with a happy heart. I'm not sure why that is the one thing that really stood out to me. Hudson is a happy baby. His smile lights up his whole face. Its adorable! The more I get to know this sweet,tender baby i know he is special and here with our family for a reason. He completes our family, and we all just adore him! I do know the spirit was there with Tyler and his blessing.It was undeniable. I am so grateful to have a husband who has and honors his priesthood. I am so grateful for a Father in Heaven who, once again trusted me with another one of his sweet, precious children. I promise to do my best in teaching ,raising, and loving these children. Its the least I can do! Each of them are such sweet, wonderful miracles!

Lilly Bug Is fantastic Five

Walker didn't want to be the only boy, so he had his best buddy Cooper tag along! I honestly think they enjoyed being with all the girls!

Taking a break....

3 little Monkeys: Kimberly, Jade, and Bentley

Lilly's birthday is on the 5th of July. This tends to be one of the busiest times of year for our family and most of Lilly's friends. Which means, most of her friends are busy or out of town for the 4th. This year, we got smart and had her birthday party a week before the holiday so all her cute little friends could come. We also got smart and had her birthday party at the place Lilly takes gymnastics from. Lilly LOVES gymnastics and was really excited. I think they all had a great time and were tuckered out at the end!! What a cute bunch of girls!!

Signs of summer

I absolutely love the summers in Utah! Once school is out The kids live in their swimsuits. What a life!! Their skin gets tanned and beautiful, they are on total sugar rushes from all the neighborhood Popsicles,and exhausted at the end of the day!!! Like I said, I LOVE SUMMER
Lilly and Clare play all day long,usually in their swimsuits or dress up clothes
Just enjoying the cold water on a warm day!

Discovery Musuem

I got a Brand New IPod touch for my birthday and guess what happened to it? My sweet and charming 6 yr old was playing with it(I didn't even have it for 24 hours) and dropped it in the toilet.....Why was it in the toilet? I don't even want to know. Anyway,good thing it had a warranty on it. We had to take it up the SLC store at the gateway to get a new one and decided to make a day trip out of it. So we ended up at The Discovery museum. The kids loved it and had a ton of fun. It such a great place for the kids to play and interact.

Walker and Ella loved the balls...

Lilly and Ella in the water....Ella LOVED THE WATER
