October 2013

I cannot believe it has been so long since I have blogged.  Now it is time for major catch up!  All the way back in October we did some really fun things.
We went to Cornbelly's for the first time ever and we will definitely make it a tradition.  We all had so much fun!

We love when friends and cousins can come do things with us!

This girl LOVES to dress up.  It is her absolute favorite thing to do.

Cute Kiddos.

We also went to Gardner Village a couple of time to see the witches.  For some reason this is the ONLY picture I took of all the times we went!

We went to the Scarecrow festival for the second year.  It was so much fun the first year that we had to go again.  It was still a lot of fun this year, but it was so crowded!

Fun on the train.

Logan was brave enough to get his face painted.  Brooklyn refused.

We had our annual Johnson Halloween party.  Cute cousins in their costumes.

Painting pumpkins.

We had friends over to carve pumpkins.  I always forget how much work it is to carve pumpkins.

We went to IHOP on Halloween day for spooky pancakes.  The kids loved them.

And finally, Halloween night we went trick or treating.  We went with cousins in one neighborhood and friends in our neighborhood.  The kids had a great time, and they even got extra candy at some houses for their awesome BYU costumes!!

Family Pictures 2013

We recently did family pictures.  I am so glad it is over with, and that we don't have to do it again for a year!  Logan was so good!  Brooklyn, not so much.  We got a lot of great pictures of Logan.  With Brooklyn, I feel like we are lucky we got anything.
He is such a handsome boy and so well behaved.

She is so full of spunk and I really couldn't imagine her any other way.

This has been called his Senior picture.

So handsome!

This face was a common occurrence throughout the whole day.

This picture is so Logan!

We also had a lot of this.

We decided to do the kids pictures one day and then family pictures another day to break up the process.  I am glad we did because Brooklyn was such a pill the first day, but surprise surprise she was all that thrilled on family picture day either.  Truly I love this girl, but she sure knows how to push my buttons.  We did manage to get a few good ones.

I love my family so much!  And thank goodness I have a great sister who takes our pictures and is so patient with my children!

First Day of Kindergarten

I cannot believe this kid started Kindergarten.  He had been so excited for this day for months!  He was so brave and didn't even look back when we dropped him off.  He didn't know anyone in his class, but has made a lot of new friends and is learning so many new things.  I love this kid so much and am so excited for him to continue to grow.  He is such a funny, helpful, kind, loving, energetic, smart boy and I know that I couldn't have asked for a better kid.

Summer Fun Pt. 3

We really had to pack a lot of fun into the last couple weeks of summer.  We had been wanting to do a Drive-in Movie all summer and finally got to do it the last week.  We went and saw Planes and Smurfs 2.  Logan is the only one of our family that stayed awake for both movies.

We also went to This is the Place.  I had never been before and it was so much fun!  I want to go back during Halloween and Christmas now.
The kids liked the petting zoo.

Even Brooklyn was brave enough to do some petting.

I wish I knew how (had the patience to learn) to put pictures from my phone on my blog.  Logan had his first professional shave.  The guy put shaving cream on and even used a dull blade.  It was awesome.  While Logan and Brooklyn waited for Layne to get his shave, they played checkers.

The kids liked taking the little train all around.

We spent a good while panning for gold.  The kids loved it.  Around the same area was a boat call the Brooklyn ship.  Brooklyn tried to tell people they couldn't go on her boat.  They also made some arrowhead necklaces.

After a very hot and busy day we got ice cream.  It was a lot of fun and we can't wait to go back.

Summer Fun Pt. 2

We had a lot of fun activities to pack into the last couple weeks of summer.  We have been wanting to go to the airplane museum for a long time so we headed out to Hill Air Force Base one day.  The boys had a lot of fun looking at all of the airplanes.  Brooklyn not so much.

She did have fun in this hands on room.

Pilot Logan.

After the airplane museum we went and got World's Best Corndogs in Kaysville.  They really were great corndogs.
Also that week we went to the Zoo.  They had some fun Lego exhibits that we wanted to see.

Logan and Layne pet this snake.  The rest of us were too freaked out.

Cute little birds.


Logan's favorite animal has always been penguins, so we had to take pictures of him by the Lego penguins.

We had so much fun at the zoo.  My favorite animal has always been the giraffe, however the polar bears were a lot of fun to watch this time.  I am already sad that summer is over.  I miss all of our fun activities we were able to do.

Summer Fun Pt. 1

We have had a crazy busy summer.  We had a lot of things we wanted to do and not a whole lot of time.  One thing we always love to do is the aquarium.  Its so nice because its close, and we have annual passes.  We are so excited for the new aquarium to open in draper.
The boys were a lot more brave than me and Brooklyn.  I don't ever dare touch anything.  We have had annual passes for 4 years and I still haven't ever touched the sting rays!

Shark Teeth!!

Row, Row, Row your Boat!

Brooklyn is a scaredy cat and wouldn't stand next to the penguin her size.  It freaked her out for some reason.

We also went downtown a couple times.  The kids loved taking the train.

On this day we went to the Gateway food court and each kid got to pick where they wanted to eat.

Right outside Energy Solutions Arena for Pioneer Day they had a fun reenactment thing.  They boys got to learn about how people did things a long time ago.  This guy is a blacksmith and was making horseshoes.

Learning about war guns.

Going on a fun wagon ride around downtown.

They also got to ride horses and grandma bought them both a fun bow and arrow to remember the day.  Brooklyn was there too, but she was too hot and tired to enjoy any of it.
We also went to the fountains that day to play.  The boys had lots of fun.  Brooklyn, not so much.
