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

Jax Dee Arnold was blessed on June 28, 2010 by his Daddy

Our little man

Our amazing family and friends

What an incredible day this was! Jax is so lucky to surrounded by the people who love him most! We are so thankful for the Priesthood in our lives. The blessing was given at 9:00 am in the West Point 10th ward. Afterwards we went to Grandma and Grandpa Arnolds house for brunch where we served the famous Ham and Swiss Croissant sandwiches.....60 sandwiches which were literally gone in 60 seconds!
Thank you to all our friends and family who love and support our family.

July Family BBQ

Drake and Grandpa Pitcher


I Love My Sisters

Drake FINALLY meeting his little brother

Im pretty sure that Drake fell in LOVE with his little brother just like mommy and daddy did! Drake stayed with Grandma Arnold the three days I was in the hospital and each and every day I couldnt wait to see Drake.....I missed him SO much!

Drake LOVES to be right by me when I nurse Jax and he has to help me burp him!

These two have pretty much been inseperable since Jax xame into our family

To say that I had some "difficulties" I guess would be a MAJOR under statement while in the hospital! But through it all Brian and I ARE and HAVE been so blessed with a CALM, HANDSOME baby boy whom we are SO in Love with.

Jax Dee Arnold

Our Sweet little Jax graced us with his presence on May 7, 2010 at 10:53 p.m. The second he came out he was not making a single noise! The doctor immediately placed him on my chest and the tears literally burst out of my eyes. He looked into my eyes like a little angel and just stared at me.....still not making a peep! There are no words to describe that moment. All I can say is that my sons are the biggest blessings! Motherhood is truly my TOTAL Joy.....
