Chloe Turned 5 years old

Chloe at dance recital in June

Looking so sweet at the river

Chloe: "Mommy, I wish that chocolate, candies and cakes are healthy like vegetables and fruit."

Me: "Why Chloe?"

Chloe: "So I can eat candies all day long and I will be the sweetest girl ever."

Me: "Oh Chloe, I love you!" (I squeezed her and kissed her)

We love this, everyday Chloe would put her flip flops on Daddy's. So sweet.

Oh What Do You Do in the Summertime...when all the world is green??

My sweeties

They were in the water all day and loved it.
Chad loves being with his sister.

I love this picture of him. so stinking cute

So tired from being in the water all day....

This summer has just flew by, but not without lots of quality and fun times with our family. This is the first year since John and I got married that I am not either pregnant or nursing a new born. So, we have had the opportunity to enjoy many family times at the river, beach, camping and swimming. I feel like I can truly enjoy myself. We made several trips to the Colorado River with the kids and it is by far my most favorite thing to do during the summer. The river gets about 100-115 degrees during the months on July and August. While this is scorging hot, the water is just perfect for us to soak in all day, and that is what my children does. By far, this is my most favorite thing to do with my family. Makes me so happy to see all my children just having the best time frolicking in the water and no television, DS, Wii, or computer, just enjoying each other's company. I love the warm weather, the scenery, and water, makes it most relaxing for me. I just wish summer would last a bit longer.

Buffy's 7th Birthday

Buffy just turned 7 years old and I keep asking myself how is it possible? It really does seem like yesterday when I woke up in the middle of the night with major labor pains and got ready to go to the hospital. I remember being overwhelmingly happy and excited to meet my first born. I remember giving birth to her was so easy, painless, and quick that I was thinking, "this is it?". She couldn't wait a second longer to be born. Flashforward seven years later, she's is so grown up and has brought so much joy and love into our lives. Very smart, outgoing and just loves life. So excited about everything. She loves to learn and is very creative. She loves her sibblings and is the best big sister to her baby brother Chad. Some mornings, she would get up, get Chad out of the crib and feeds him breakfast before I get up!!! She can play the piano for Family Home Evening. I am so proud of her, I am most proud of her having such a kind and loving heart towards others. Cannot ask for a better first born. I love so much Buffy Girl.
