Happy Birthday Boys!!!

Monday was my anniversary!! Jeff and I celebrated 7 years of marriage. We've been together for 11 years!! YIKES. We went to eat at Pei Wei with the kiddos in celebration. It was yummy.



Three days after our 4th wedding anniversary we welcomed our little guys!! I can't believe it's been 3 years since they came along. They woke up yesterday and were given the choice of anything they wanted for breakfast.


I offered to make them waffles, pancakes, you name it. They chose to have Lucky Charms with milk.....and bacon.

Got some more cute shirts for their birthday. LOVE them. What a handsome three-year-old. (Grant)




My guys are so big!





WE had a family party on Sunday so yesterday for their actual birthday we went to Chuck E. Cheese's for lunch with some friends. We had a great time. They ate a ton of pizza and had fun running around with the other kiddos.



Not to mention the fact that CHUCK E. was there!! They kept giving him coins/tokens. I had to explain to them that Chuck E. owned the place and didn't need their tokens. They couldn't get over the fact that he was really there. They kept saying "Hi Chuck".




After nap time yesterday we had a special delivery. Grandpa and Emmy got the boys a small bounce house.




They waited a whole 5 minutes before they asked me to blow it up so they could play with it. They LOVE it.




Not to mention the fact that it burns a huge amount of energy! Wish we had one of these during winter in Salt Lake. :)




I made the boys cupcakes for their birthday. I was really proud of the job I did and I wanted to use my cupcake stand.




Grant enjoying his birthday cupcake.





Reed was loving it so much he wouldn't stop to look at the camera. Happy birthday to my sweet sweet boys. You've come so far and I'm so excited to share the rest of our lives together.

Zoo Trip and Birthday Party

Feelin' hot hot hot!! I'm not going to complain too much because it's waaaayyyyyy better to be hot than cold (and have snow) but it's been HOT here lately. I mean HOT. So the boys and I have been trying to think of ways to beat the heat. They usually involve some sort of cold/frozen treat. We went for slushies at Sonic and we had ice cream at McDonald's. (Reed)

It's soooooo hot out that the ice cream didn't even stand a chance. Grant


We've been playing in the sprinklers and with our cool bucket toys. Daddy found these at Wal-Mart at the end of last summer season. We didn't get a chance to play with them then but are LOVING them now.


You just push the buck down on the base and the water fills it from the bottom up. So cool!!



They just kept watering the grass, my feet, and each other.




Mr. Archie just laying in the sun trying to relax while two 3-year-olds walk around with buckets of water. Not an easy task.

My handsome little men are turning three on Thursday so we decided to celebrate over the weekend. We went to the zoo with Uncle Whitney, Daddy, and my friends Jeff and John. We had such a great time. It was like a thousand degrees out so that part wasn't fun but we still had a good time.

The boys thought the giraffes were sooooooo cool!!



In the petting zoo we got to help brush the goats.

The carousel at the zoo.
After we got home from the zoo it was nap time. During nap time Jeff, Whit, and I decorated the house for the afternoon party. When the boys woke up they were ready to Par-ty. (Reed)
The boys just wanted to sit at the table and look at their cakes. (Diego cakes)
Grangie and Grandpa are getting the boys a swing set for their birthday and Jeff and I got them some cool stuff from little tikes that's not here yet sooooooo, the only gifts they had were from Auntie Lacey and Uncle Whitney and Auntie Kristen and Uncle Doug and Justin and Alexa.


They got two new cozy coupes from them!!! How cool!!! They LOVE them. They ride them all over the house!! (BTW....thanks uncle Whitney and daddy for putting them together. Who know you would need a PHD in little tikes to figure it out)




Then it was time to sing Happy Birthday!!!!
My guys!!




Grant blowing out his candles.

Make a wish Reed.



Grant eating his cake. They got to pick their own cakes this year. They both picked a "Diego" cake but Grant picked white cake and Reed picked chocolate.



Reed digging in to his cake!


We weren't really watching Grant that closely and he was sticking his fork into the big cake in front of him instead of the piece on his plate. He got in a few big bites before we saw what he was up to. Their actual birthday is on Thursday and we are going to Chuck E Cheese's. I'll post pics afterwards.

We've Moved!!!

Here's a pic of our new house!! I love it!! WE have soooooooo much room!! We can spread out and we are! I've gotten most of our things unpacked and put away. The project continues and will for the next few weeks.



Before we moved....we were living with Jeff's mom and dad (thanks again for having us for so long) and the boys got to be spoiled by Grangie. After she went with us to swim lessons she decided they needed goggles. They have put them to good use in the tub.


Perfect for keeping out the soap.



We had to paint a few of the bedrooms at the new house. So before the movers brought our stuff we got into the house and painted. And by "we" I mean Jeff and Whitney and sometimes me. Lacey and I spent our time watching the boys play in their new super Texas sized backyard.



Reed quickly figured out how to drink the water out of the sprinkler...




My Reed boy.



The guys finding trouble in their new yard.



We took the day off of painting on Memorial Day and decided to run up to the lake house. G-Pa Was kind enough to take the boys on their first tube ride behind the boat.



The chariot. No really that's what it's called.



Reed was so excited he didn't understand why we had to drive the boat to the middle of the lake. As soon as we put the tube in he wanted to get on. :)




Grant getting ready.



Jeff got on first.




The boys got on next.




And away they went.....




They had such a good time that Reed cried when we took him off. :( After Jeff went with them, uncle Whitney got on too. (It's hard to see but all four of them are on there)
