Flying High

If you know Ryker you know how crazy he is. He absolutely LOVES it when Abe throws him as high as he can. If anyone is interested in that beautiful orange truck in the background let me know. We're trying to sell it. Who wouldn't want a gas hog right now, right!

Gage's 6 month check up

Gage had is 6 month check up last week. He's still a big baby weighing in at 19 lbs 7oz (70%), and is almost 28inches tall (90%). Gage was crying after he got his shots and Ryker said, "Oh Gage I'm sorry those people shot you." It was so sweet and funny.

Happy Birthday Lydia!

My niece Lydia turned 1 on July 10th. We celebrated her first birthday at our house on Sunday. Isn't she adorable!! I loved that she wasn't afraid of getting her hands dirty. She completely demolished that cake.

This is one of the cutest pictures I think I've ever taken. Here's Ryker and his cousins Eli and Amelia.

Lake Powell

Well, I'm finally getting around to posting some pictures of our trip we took to Lake Powell at the end of June. I have to say Lake Powell is always my favorite vacation of the year. I've gone at least once a year since I was 5 years old and every year we have such a blast, and this year was no exception. We had 16 adults and 15 kids (9 of which were under the age of 5) on one houseboat. We had so much fun hanging out, swimming, tubing, hiking, jet skiing, playing games and of course watching a movie every night on the roof with Todd's blowup bigscreen and projector. Ryker loved being with his cousins and playing in the sand and water all day, and I couldn't have asked for a better baby than Gage. He was so good the whole time! Doesn't he look like such a stud in his sunglasses.

This year Ryker learned how to waterski. He was a little scared at first, but he did so good! Pretty cool to say he learned to ski when he was still in diapers.

Here's a picture of most the kids that came. Starting from the left: Bailey, Hunter, Ryker, Bridger, Collin, Justin, Sam, Alli, Brooklyn, Colton and Ashlynd.
