Happy 4th of July!

For the Fourth of July we went in the morning to a neighborhood HOA parade.  

The first thing we did was get our faces painted. 

How cute is this guy? 

The boys rode in the parade on their scooters behind a fire truck.  

We started out at our elementary school and made a big loop. 

Zev was looking pretty cool in his patriotic shirt and shades. 

Here we are in a quick family selfie.  The boys are enjoying their food coloring free shaved ice (also known as just ice...) 

They had a great time touring the fire truck.  I think Isaac went in three separate times. 

We had to take a picture on the front. 

After the parade, we came home for Isaac to take a nap.  After nap time, we had another family over to swim, play, and eat hot dogs.  The boys had so much fun with their friends, but I didn't get a lot of pictures. 

I love the fourth of July.  I really love any holiday that is about being with your family and having fun without all the pressure of presents, etc. The boys had a great day, and we are continuing to have a fun summer!

The rest of June...

After Isaac's birthday, they celebrated him again on Friday at school. 

He loved sharing his birthday boy status with his friend. 

That Friday afternoon we had some fun out by the pool. 

The big boys made some sort of secret potion. 

Zev and Tahl both stayed the night at the JCC for their camp sleep overs.  Tahl was nervous, and he called thinking about coming home, but he decided to stay. 

I got to go on a girls weekend with Katy and Heather.  I have been friends with these two ladies since Zev was two months old, so it was really fun to just hang out and relax together. 

Isaac got a little sick, and he stayed home from camp one day.  I had a quick doctor's appointment, and I left him home with Iris.  This was the text that I got from her.  At least Dixie was keeping this poor sick guy better company than I was. 

Here is a picture from camp of Zev at Hawaiian Falls water park. 

We went to a birthday party where one of our friend's dad dressed up as the Blue Power Ranger.  

Not only did the boys have a great time at the party, they had a great time jumping and playing with a "power ranger."  Not one of our boys knew what a Power Ranger was before the party, but that did not stop them from being impressed. 

June has been a fun month with lots of activities and camp.  We love summer!

Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to Ari! He is the best dad ever, and these boys are so lucky to have him.  

To celebrate him we spent the day at Amazing Jake's.  We had free entry there with our Pogo Pass. Matt, Emily, Grey, Holden, and Beau came to celebrate with us. 

We had fun as a family playing mini golf. 

Isaac and Beau rode with Emily on the carousel. 

Isaac really loved this train too. 

The big boys and I had fun on the bumper cars.  They did them with Ari after me. 

Ari and Matt had fun playing some shooting game together. 

Overall, we had a great day celebrating Matt and Ari with all our many many boys.

Isaac's birthday!

Our sweet Isaac turned three yesterday!  He has been asking if it is his birthday yet for a week or two, so I am so glad he enjoyed it. 

He told me that he would have balloons and streamers like brothers. 

He, of course, wanted to rip them down immediately. 

He was very happy though. 

He asked Ari to make him pancakes for breakfast! 

He got a big three.

He also got a big heart which he was really excited about. 


He asked for some cereal on the way to camp.

It was the first day of summer camp for all three boys. Isaac has one of his same teachers from the year and almost all of his same classmates. He was excited to start camp at the same time as brothers though and maybe be able to see them around. 

Here he is before he left when his friends all sang happy birthday to him.

I had to run an errand on the way home, and it just so happened to be right next to celebrity bakery.  He picked out this big basketball cookie. 

After a nice birthday nap, he wanted to lay in my bed and watch a show.

He didn't lay down for long though.  It's busy work shouting out at Team Umizoomi. 

He ended up deciding that he should have birthday dinner in his undies.  He was very excited about the coffee maker that he got from The Richardsons. 

He got a garbage truck that he loves from Pops and Gram.

Tahl told him that there were keys in the bag still from Emily, and he was so excited.

 He got Daniel Tiger figures and a trolley from his Mimi.

He loves all of his presents and has been playing with them nonstop. 

 He asked for a cookie cake for his birthday dessert.  (I may have had some influence here...) 

He thought it was delicious, but he didn't even finish it.  He may have been cookied out. 

Here is is right before bed on his first day as a three year old.  He took his new keys to bed with him. 

We feel so lucky that Isaac is our little guy.  He is smart, kind, funny, and loving.  He makes people smile everywhere he goes. We hope he has a year as amazing as he is!
