It isn't about waiting out the storm it's learning to dance in the rain!

Batter UP!

We had a very fun week. Cole (Jordan's cousin) was staying with G'ma and so we got to play with him and Landon in the pool

Then we got to go to the Zoo with Cole and Tait (one of Jordan's friends). They got to see the elephants, giraffes, penguins- but I think all the boys liked the gator the best. We had so much fun there and it was great cuz we wore them right out!!!

On Saturday - we went to the Bees' Game. I have no idea who they played but we had fun. It was a nice family outing - complements of Mountain Medical Imaging Center. They even bought our dinner!! I love working with great people. We even got to sit next to Brandee, Jared and Landon. Here are some of our pics...

New news this week is that Lexi is already rolling over!! I know I can't even believe it myself and this is her after she not only rolled over but also turned 180 degrees around. Don't ask me how!
And then of course you can see Jordan has found his nose and won'tleave it alone! But this pic is cute cuz he just loves wearing everybody's shoes. Crazy Kid!!

We had so much fun this last Friday! Our friends invited us to stay with them at Snowbird and we took up the invite. We went up during the day and got an all day pass - it was ssssooooo much fun. Thanks to Jason and Kristin for helping with the kiddies and Eilene and Paul for letting us stay in their room. Here are some things we did.

We fed the fish at the pond and the fish just jumped up and gobbled it all up. Jordan liked the throwing of the food - I don't know if he even saw the fish eat it up.

We rode the tram up to the top of the mountain and it was such a beautiful view. Of course Jordan just wanted to throw rocks off the side and Alexis just sat in her stroller - They both loved the fresh air.

Jordan loves bounce houses and the slide - there was a 5 minute limit he had a really hard time sticking to. We ended up there a lot. Lizzy was a little hesitant to get in - she was smart she didn't want to be smashed by Jordan.

The Alpine Slide was awesome - I even had fun. The not so fun part was waiting in line but Jordan went 4 times. When Casey got up there he took him for a ride too. He loved it and the faster the better.

We also did the Peruvian Chair Ride and Jordan insisted on riding(ok sitting) on the Mechanical Bull.

And of course- I love my kids and thought these pics were so cute I had to include them.

*Mom, note the hat and sweater- they were yours :)

Birthday Boy

WOW! is one of Jordan's new words along with a 100 others. He just cracks me up and even more so lately. He finally turned 2 on July 31st and he got a gourmet meal at McDonalds. I know... he has acted 2 for the last 6 mos and I guess now - it is OFFICIAL. OH NO! And all my aunts and uncles kept calling him birthday boy so he started saying it. It sounds a lot like birf boy

July has been super busy. My maternal grandparents finally got to meet my children. Yeah! They brought blocks that my grandpa made. And of course Jordan loves them because they make noise and are stored in a wagon. Then he met even more family at my grandpas' cousin reunion.

We also went to Zions for a family reunion and really had fun. Casey, Jordan and I went to the park for a day and went on the Emerald Pools hike. Alexis stayed with cousin Kora and my sister took care of them- Thank you Chrissy! We had a lot of fun, ok, maybe not Casey who turned out to be the pack mule- JR didn't want to walk.

Animal Planet here we come. Jordan, Alexis and I went to Liberty Park to an Animal Planet Expo. It was really hot and I couldn't believe how many people were there but Jordan had a great time and even won a little panda - he wanted to do all the rides but he was a little too short. Poor guy!

And this is what Alexis did...

It has been a very busy month but it has been fun. We have met new friends and spent some great time with family - and that was our favorite part.
