Another First!

Tyler has had so many firsts in the last 2 weeks (lost her first tooth, learned to tie her shoes, and started first grade)!!! It's exciting and sad all at once. Her newest first? She got her ears pierced on Friday. She worked REALLY hard at earning them. Yeah Tyler!!!

First Day of School

Wednesday was Tyler and Boston's first day of school. Tyler is in 1st grade, Boston is in half day private kindergarten (next year her will do full day public kindergarten). Here are some pics of the event.

(this is the only pic I have of Tyler at school because she got all brave and wanted to go alone)

(Boston showing Ryder the snakes at school- notice Ryder's backpack- he wants to be just like his big brother)

Big News (no! I'm not pregnant)

Tyler is so excited!!! She "finally" lost her first tooth. I have to admit, when it came out and she showed me her new smile- I got a little teary eyed. She's getting too old too fast.

Utah: Week 4

Sadly, the Utah trip is over. We had such a good time. The best part of all was spending time with my family. It was great to see cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, etc. I loved hanging with my mom and my sister. So here are the final week pictures:

Lagoon!!!! I would choose Lagoon any day over Disneyland. My kids had so much fun. It wasn't too crowded and it wasn't too hot. All in all, such a fun trip to Lagoon. My kids all agree, this was their favorite part of the Utah trip. My kids, who are all kind of wimps (except Ryder who is too small to go on the scary rides anyway) got brave and tried a few "scary" rides. Tyler even went on the white roller coaster.

Curry/Swim party at Bill and Cori's. You can never go wrong if you start the evening with a "Lake O' Curry". We had so much fun hanging out with my cousins. The new backyard is amazing! Thanks Bill and Cori for the fun, fun night.

The final night in Utah was so fun. Ammon and I went out to dinner at Market Street Grill. My mom watched Scarlett. Lacey (of course above and beyond!) took the other kids on a tram ride at Snowbird. Next they enjoyed a dinner at IHOP. Followed by a sleepover with their aunt Loo. Thanks mom and Loo for letting us escape for a few hours!!!!
