Fort Collins Fun!

My little sweethearts!
Parker loving the slide! (With his first big bonk by his eye)

Some of the fellas girllin up some good food! 

Our grill master! 

All us girls as Eliza named us "The Wives Club" I thought that was perfect! 

I never thought I would live anywhere but Boise Idaho but now I have lived in Utah for the past year and  now in Fort Collins, Colorado for the summer then back to Utah in August. It's just crazy where life takes you. But we are enjoying our time here. Brandon has been doing great at his job and is such a hard worker! I thought he put in tons of hours last summer with working and school but I think he is gone more this summer with this job but he is liking it and doing great. He is the top rookie in his office and continues to amaze me in everything he does!  It's been a couple weeks now here in Fort Collins and we are really liking it! There are tons of things to do here (well if it would stop raining)! We have been having tons of fun with all our new friends. Each week all us wives get together on Thursday for a little lunch bunch and this week we are doing a craft! I am totally excited :) And the other wives are super nice and really fun to hang out with I can't wait to spend more time throughout the summer to get to know them even better! Even though its been kinda chilly we have gone to the pool a few times as a family its been really fun Brooklyn likes to stay on the steps and play with her little water baby, Ashlyn is a little fish and is a crazy swimmer (I think she can swim better than me), and Parker just loves kicking around in his tube and splashes tons! We go to the park like everyday and kids just love it! Parker is just growing so fast, he kinda crawls well scoots on his bum its funny but he would much rather stand and try to walk. He is getting so sturdy and kinda almost took a step on his own the other day. I just can't wait for him to get moving! Brooklyn and Ashlyn love playing with their little friend Emmalyn, they get along so good. Well and I have been in the crafting mood lately and have been having tons of fun making the girls some fun bows and things! That about all that we have been up to here in Colorado.

Parker 9 months and Growing

Parker standing up all by himself!!

Fun day at the zoo! He looks so big here! :)

Parker is 9 months old today I just can't believe how old he already is! So here is a little update on our little well big dude! He is a whopping 26 pounds, loves all food put in front of him except rice cereal (he thinks its totally disgusting), he still is a wonderful sleeper which I am so grateful for, he loves his naps he is taking 2 sometimes 3 then goes to sleep for the night at 9:30 it's amazing to have one that likes to sleep :) he has said dada for a little bit but just the other day said mama I was ecstatic he said it then looked right at me it was so cute, he is not quiet mobile yet but will pull himself up on things and will stand all by himself for a bit so I think walking is not too far away, and last but not least he is just the happiest baby in the world I love how giggly and smiley he always is! I am just so thankful and happy to be his mommy! He brightens up my day everyday I love having this sweet little boy a part of our family!

Happy Birthday to my sweet Ashlyn! I can't believe she is already 5 years old! Time just goes by so fast! It seems like just the other day I was finding out we were pregnant with our first little baby. She is such a blessing in our lives. Since day one she has been so happy and cheerful! I am so thankful for her....she is the sassiest, loving, sweet, most helpful beautiful little girl a mother could ask for. She is seriously like another little mommy at our home. She is so obedient and is always making sure she and everyone around her is choosing the right and if you are not she will remind you! She loves to help me out with her little sister and brother, she loves anything princess or pink, she lives her life as if it is a musical on Broadway. I love watching her play and become a new character in her playing its so entertaining! She has the sweetest heart and will make sure to help you out when you are needing it.I love the relationship she has with Brooklyn and the sweet friendship they have already started. I am so grateful for her in our family and for her to be the great little example she is already to her sister and brother. I love everyday being her mommy! Happy Birthday Sweetheart! I love you!
