Update on Lyla

My little girl is growing up way too fast!! I need time to SLOW DOWN! She is already 8 months old and does tons of stuff that she shouldn't (in my mind.) Lyla is a pro at crawling, she says dada and lyla (although I think that's a flook), she gives some great slobbery kisses, she pulls herself into a standing position and she claps too! I can't believe it! I need another BABY!

This is my little Lyla when she should be sleeping...just giving us the stare down...
Take that you suckers!

the 24th...

We took the girls to the park in Bountiful for the 24th and let them play some of the carnival games. Abigale won this cool noise maker in the fishing game. She was quite excited! We also took the girls to the Bountiful Rec Center to go swimming! They had a ton of fun and Lyla was going crazy trying to crawl out into the water by herself.

We lit off a few little fireworks at Spencer's parents house on the 24th. To do this we let the girls stay up 2 1/2 hours past their bed time...Abigale loved it!

Lyla on the other hand could have cared less!!! She was sooo tired!

BEACH & California Fun!

This is a LONG POST! Lots of pictures of our family vacation...enjoy!

This was our first day on the beach and we were quite happy that Abigale loved every aspect of the beach this year! Here is Mayli (in the water), Nikki, Abigale, and Tori
Abigale and Tori playing in the sand CHEESE
My sweet Lyla Belle, enjoying her time under the umbrella!Last year I was pregnant and did not get to go on the fun rides at Belmont Park, so this year I was the one who got to accompany Abigale on rides! She loved the carousel and even rode a pony that went up and down all by herself. Sorry the pic is blurry but Spencer thought this setting on the camera looked cool.
Having fun on the submarine!
This is at the Scripps Aquarium...quite an awesome experience. There were tons of tanks, but this one was HUGE!

Yikes!! SHARKS!

Carson, Lyla, Abigale, Mayli, and Tori Back at the beach with Daddy
I love this Photo!
So happy!!

Running around, having a BLAST

Enjoying shaved ice on the beach!
Can't leave little Lyla out on the goodness!
YUM...give me more!
We had a great time and can't wait till next year!!

Out of the Ordinary...

It's not everyday that you wake up to find a play land outside your front door. So we decided to take advantage of the fun that WRA provided for the 4th.

Abigale did really well climbing up the slides all by herself!
Here is a pic of Abigale and Joseph up at the top! 1, 2, 3...GO!

This was actually pretty cool. You put the ball over the cone and the wind blows it up and you hit it! Abigale tried really hard to get this ball to move!!

Well my birthday has come and gone again! This time around it leaves me older and a mother of two little girls. It is crazy how the time flies! Well as you can see from the picture below I was spoiled with possibly one of my most favorite things on this earth...PEPSI! Spencer got me the 36 pack and my friends Chelsey and Drew got me the 24 pack! Abigale and Lyla got me flowers and another 12 pack of Pepsi that isn't in the photo cause it's in the fridge chilling in wait...

Here is my cake...YUM! This is the cake that I have had for AGES for my birthday! I just love it! It has cool whip on it instead of icing...and seriously people, I could probably eat the whole thing myself if I didn't have a husband to stop me! We had our usual game night last night and since it was my birthday we had a couple of other friends over as well. It was great to be able to spend time with friends in celebration...and they even sang and made me blow out a candle! I feel like a little kid again!!

Seriously I think these flowers are a new favorite! I got them for my anniversary in yellow and now for my birthday in green (sorry color is bad in photo) they are called mum spiders...or just spiders for the normal breed. I LOVE THEM!!
Thank you to all of you for your well wishes and gifts on my birthday! It was a great day!!
