So there has been a couple of things we have been doing the past couple of weeks. Wyatt went to a birthday party. And they were all knights, he has his armor on, and he was "Sir Blue of Berry" It was really cute. Except the armor was made out of Emergancy blankets and the kids were running out in the sun...lol. We went to another parade. This one was by far the best we have been to. We still have one more this year. I think next year we want to make all the parades around the towns from us. The kids love the free candy and all the horses, motorcycles, buggys, just anything.
At one of the parades we went to a booth and got Wyatt a cheap bow and arrow set. It has been one of our best investments. Josh and him made a target and took some old arrows and cut the tips off. Wyatt is taping a bear to his target in this one.
Wyatt loves it! The next two pictures are for you dad. A boy and his bow and arrow.
And this one made me laugh, Clayton just woke up and reminded me of you dad..with hardly any hair and it was sticking up. We send our love Grandma and Grandpa McDonald!

One of the reasons for getting all the sister-in-laws together was to spend some time with Camille. Camille just suffered the loss of a baby. She had what they call a blighted ovum (also known as “anembryonic pregnancy”) happens when a fertilized egg attaches itself to the uterine wall, but the embryo does not develop. Cells develop to form the pregnancy sac, but not the embryo itself. A blighted ovum usually occurs within the first trimester before a woman knows she is pregnant. A high level of chromosome abnormalities usually causes a woman’s body to naturally miscarry. Please keep them in your prayers. We are greatful to have them in our family.

On Thursday, we went to the mall with Camille and did some shopping. Also, we met up with all the sister-in-laws for lunch. It was such a lovely time. We got some cute pictures of the kids. They had such an awesome time climbing on the rocks. I love this picture, Clayton looks like he has accomplished something. He almost got to the top of that rock.



Briley looks so cute in her stroller.
Two cousins having fun.

Clayton's Walking

video

So last week Clayton started walking! We are so happy for him, and he loves that he can almost keep up withthe kids...well almost! The kids think its so cool.

Summer Fun

This is just a sweet picture of the two boys, I can't wait til they can play together. Clayton loves getting the popcorn popper out. By the way this thing makes the best popcorn. My kids could eat it all day long. This past week was Santaquin days, we did the childrens parade. The kids loved decorating their bikes. They had so much fun. I'm so glad Josh was able to come, because i wouldn't be able to keep an eye on these kids. Wyatt and his friend Jackson wanted to go fast, and Hailey is still learning and she is a lot slower. We had fun!
We also went to the big parade on Saturday, but i forgot the camera. Than we went to the park for games and got to look at the cool cars. Hailey got to ride on the pony, she had so much fun!

We also got to go to the rodeo, but yet again, i forgot the camera. Its alright, the kids had so much fun and so much candy...lol. They were definitely wired. Tomorrow we are heading over to another parade, we love the parades in the summer!
