Brigham Temple

As hard as you think it is to drag 3 rambunctious boys to a Temple Open House, it was worth it!  And they actually did AWESOME!!!  It was such a beautiful Temple, even my boys enjoyed looking at it!  I'm sooo grateful my family is a forever family, and I love to share experiences like this with them!

First Day of School!

Here is Cord of to SECOND GRADE!  It's kind of unbelievable how fast they move through school!  And he sure loves school!  I think it's mainly because he gets to be with his friends, but who cares, right?!

 And Bridger off to his first day of KINDERGARTEN!!!  I'm so proud of him.  They did an IEP for him and decided he is ready to be in school all by himself without an AID.  He's one of the smartest kids in his class!  But we sure backtracked on hours!  He used to go to school 8 hours a day, now he only gets 3!!!
 And his awesome Angry Bird Backpack!
 And my cute Bridger started Preschool this year!  He is a shy guy but he loved it and wants to keep going back, that's a good sign, right?

 And his AWESOME Toy Story backpack!
 And on his first day he got a Super Kid Cape!  He LOVED IT!

Hudsons 3rd Birthday Party!

Stinken Pinterest gave me these bright ideas to give Hudson a themed Birthday Party!  It's a lot of work, time and money to go all out, and I wasn't so sure I wanted too!  But I'm glad I did!  It turned out way cute!!!  And I didn't go all out as I could have!!!  The Cat in The Hat!!!!!
 Great Grandma Likens with my 3 boys!  I love this picture, they all are smiling soo cute!!

 The fun, blue punch, red straws, red vines, red sweetish fish, yellow fish crackers and the cupcakes are supposed to be like Thing 1, and Thing 2!  Red velvet cupcakes, white frosting with blue sprinkles and cotton candy (like their hair)!  IT was fun!

I sure love my Hudson!  Some of Hudsons favorite things at 3 are playing with Bridger, Mylee and Risa, playing with his cars, and watching shows.  He's terrified of everything.  No Kidding.  He hates rides, water, petrified of our new dog, his cousins new kitten, fly's, lady bugs etc.... the list could go on!  But he sure loves his mommy and daddy!  He calls Bridger "Didger".  He can count to 15.  He knows some of his alphabet.  Within the past month he got potty trained, moved to a big boy bed, got rid of the binky and turned the BIG 3!!!!  We are sooo unbelievably in LOVE with this kid, even though he also turned into one of the biggest stink pots ever that doesn't like to do what he's told!!!  Life is rough you know?!?!?!  JK!  We Love you Hudson!

Summer Fun

So here is just a bunch of fun random moments this summer that I thought I would throw on the good old blog!  Cord had a sleepover with his buddies and they turned the hose on and built a mote in our sandbox that entertained them and my other naked little Hudson for hours!!!!

 Cords new favorite thing right now is the Skate Park.  His best buddies the twins are really into their scooter and skate board, so of course Cord is too!  Here he is trying out his moves.  And Bridger Loved tagging along on his 3 wheeler!!

 Cord went to the Utah State Football camp this summer and had a blast!!  Let me tell you, this boy is going to be one good athlete!!  He has the athleticism, the drive, and the want to do great things!

 And we can't forget about Bridger.  He just loves to do anything.  He's happy being any where.  And he sure had fun with T-ball this year.  We enjoyed going and watching him and lets just say he paid attention a good 50% of the time!! :)

Discovery Gateway

They had an Autism day at Discovery Gateway a while back, and yet again, I was reminded at how lucky I am to have my sweet Bridger in my life.  And that in fact, he is way more of a blessing than a trial as I once thought before....  He has come sooo far, he LOVES life.  You will ALWAYS find him getting the most out of where ever we are, and having the most fun!  

 Abbie and her 3 girls came with me and they had a ball too!  Here's Mylee

 And the Helicopter!

 Some random lady built Bridger in these blocks, he LOVED it!

Beautiful Nature...

Awhile ago I discovered this beautiful Robins nest filled with 4 blue eggs in it.  I was surprised at how low this nest was and right smack in the middle of my sand pile in the back.  So, lucky me got to take progression pictures of these baby birds hatching and growing at such a rapid speed!  I thought it was sooo beautiful, then I took a look around my house and kind of fell in love with nature all over again and decided to take some pictures of a few of my favorite things in my yard!
