JULY 4, 2010

Fourth of July is one of our favorite holidays! Holidays are getting so much funner the older my boys get! We started off the day at Brynleigh's All-Star game and then off to the Layton parade. Drake got a little nervous and pretty much stayed right by me. Jax layed on a blanket and kicked those cute, chubby little legs for Grandpa.
We of course had our usual "all day at the park until fireworks" thing and we had the best time. Grandpa Jeff made AMAZING ribs, that we all fought over, along with other deliciousness! Kristi did face-painting, or "arm" painting in Drake's case.
The fireworks were FABULOUS as usual!

Until next year......

Drake turned 2!!

This little boy in these pictures LOVES the Wonder Pets!
So of course he HAD to have a Wonder Pets 2 year old Birthday Party!!
We invited friends and family to the Classic Fun Center in Layton for a BIG party!

Drake had a 2 year old BLAST!

My HOMEMADE Wonder Pets cake....that kept me up until 2:30 am and up bright and early the next morning to finish. I had the Birthday Boy by my side eating the frosting as I finished the cake!

Our little 2 year old!

We ended the birthday party at a decent time so all the men could attend Priesthood Conference. Drake was still in the mood to party so we went to Red Robin with Grandma Arnold, Aunt Abi, Uncle Ashton and Aunt Paige while the boys attended Priesthood. Drake got a chocolate milkshake AND an ice cream dessert....which he LOVED!

Summer at Cherry Hills!

We had a BLAST at Cherry Hills over the summer!
Jax was only 8 weeks old and I was sooooo nervous about taking him but we ended up having the funnest time! I cant say that Drake LOVED the water but he LOVED to eat snacks and "people watch" which is definately a "Pitcher" thing. I made sure we went when I knew help would be there.....thanks to the Kinnes's and Arnold's.

This is pretty much what Jax did each time
