Here is my last post from May 2014. We went to the zoo again, this time with the whole family, my mom, and my brother's family. I sure love the zoo! We were able to see the bird show this time, which I LOVE, and just enjoy perfect weather. We tried to use our zoo pass one more time after this day, but ended up getting rained out. So this was our last good visit on our year membership. I would love to get a membership again sometime! We let the kids each bring some of their own money to pick out a souvenir. This was a good thing since they always beg for everything there (like kids do), and it helped them really choose something they for sure wanted. Bennett chose a stuffed polar bear (he really loves stuffed animals), Mylie got the butterfly umbrella (which I can say she has gotten some good use out of up to this point), and Coy picked a bubble gun, which he has had tons of fun with, when it chooses to work properly! Here are the photos from our day:
Mylie had her dance recital at the end of May. She had some super cute costumes. And of course she is super cute, too. She sure shines on stage! She is a natural performer and still is yet to be shy to perform in front of anyone or any group. I hope it lasts!
Our first activity of the summer was hiking up to Timpanogas cave and of course getting a tour of the inside! It was amazing and so much fun. The kids loved every bit of it. And Nora got a nice cool nap inside.
Since I am drastically behind on here, I never did share these photos of my cute niece's first dance. My mom and I were able to be there to take some pictures and see her off. Oh, and how may people (not to mention pliers) does it take to put on a boutonniere?
Isn't she pretty? Her mama is probably so proud :)
Some trampoline fun. This is Lillie.
And this spunky girl is Linda.
And this chunky baby is Hinckley (he also has a twin that I didn't get a picture of.)
I've been married to Russell for 13 years. We've been blessed with four beautiful children! I absolutely love being a mom and spending time with my family every day. I take way too many pictures because time just goes by way too fast and I love capturing all those special, fleeting moments!
