Linford turned 4!
Oh geez, where do I start with Linny Binny?
This big guy steals EVERYONES heart.
He makes friends with everyone and is so much fun to hang out with.
He has the funniest sense of humor and is quite the athlete.
He is obsessed with BYU and football.
He wears his jersey everywhere, everyday right along with a pair of cleats.
Our family definitely would NOT be complete without Linford.
Happy Birthday to our 4 year old.

SOOOO many things have happened this summer...
*We moved to Mesa (and love it)
*All 3 kids learned how to swim on their own
*Trip to Idaho
*Hewitt turned 6
*Hewitt started kindergarten
*Grammy and Popps decided to move to AZ
PLAYING, SWIMMING, and more PLAYING
Things to COME...
*Baby #4 is scheduled to arrive in 2 weeks
(but I have a hunch he might come a few days early)
*Linfords 4th Birthday
Brandon and Harper at the Mesa Temple
Can't believe he is 6!!!
Hewitt was such a trooper
We had to move on his birthday
Hewitt is one of the sweetest, most passionate kids I have ever met,
not to mention very very smart.
Love him, can't believe he is 6.
4th of July
We spent the 4th with My Aunt Kris and my cousins. We had so much fun swimming and doing fireworks. These are my festive homemade oreo's that me and Linford made.
Linford is actually a really big help in the kitchen. He actually helps when he's in the kitchen with me. He always tells me he wants to be a chef.
Swimming has been such a MAJOR part of our lives this summer.
We swim atleast once a day 5 days a week.
Harper is our little fish.
Its a little scary at times how confident he is.
He recently taught himself how to swim and
it is the cutest, most impressive, funny thing to watch.
I get comments on him from mulitple people everytime we are at the pool.
"WOW, how old is he?"
"He's quite the dare devil isn't he?"
"He's only 2?!?!"
He LOVES the water.
Movie nights on the weekends.
Love the Summer.

Words can't even describe the father and husband that Brandon is.
The neatest thing is, he keeps getting better and better as the days go by.
There are things I see in him daily that make me realized how blessed I am.
I have many extreme quirks about me and the kids and I are very blessed to have Brandon here to help balance them out!
He just makes our family complete.
Brandon was out of town on business for 6 weeks and those 6 weeks were SO HARD...
I never learned to appreciate him MORE.
I realized how much the kids and I NEEDED him.
Not for the regular "man" things or "honey-do's", like fixing stuff or taking out the trash, or taking the kids when I need a break (which are definitely a bonus)
But we missed him more for things like,
hugs and kisses before bed,
cuddling on the couch,
wrestling with the boys,
and just his PRESENCE.
Yesterday Hewitt randomly said,
"mom our house just feels.........(pause).........BETTER with Dad here"
Brandon has been home for 3 weeks now and Hewitt STILL had that on his mind.
I am so thankful for him.
Words can't describe the feelings I have for Brandon.
I am so THANKFUL that he is who he is and that we are so blessed to have him apart of our little family.
NOT ONLY THAT,
but the fact that our relationship only continues to get better.
HAPPY FATHERS DAY BRANDON!!!
