Fun Walks

We go on walks through our neighborhood almost every day and I just took the camera with me on one of those trips.
Alyssa found something cool.

Just hangin out

Trying to cool off in the water fountain


Cool treats are essential in the summer.

County Fair

We went to a fair down in Spanish Fork the other week, it wasn't anything exciting, but it was something to do. They had this big wading pool and they put lots of fish in it, now these weren't simple gold fish mind you, they were huge trout or something and they were letting the kids catch the fish with their bare hands or in nets. Then they put the fish in zip lock bags and all of the fish were going belly up because they were running out of air in the bags, it was really sad to see them all dieing and the kids being so excited about it. But Natalie caught one (she is Jim's girlfriends (Charlie) daughter), and then we wanted to put it back in the pool, because we didn't want to take it home, but they wouldn't let us which I thought was really dumb.




We have tried to have Alyssa ride on the ponies several times, but she has always been too scared, finally this time she didn't cry and she had a lot of fun. She was yelling the whole time, "Daddy, lookit!" or "Daddy, pony!" you can sort of hear her on the video.

Husband questions

My sister in law Sian tagged me, so here goes.
Here are a bunch of fun questions relating to my husband:
1. What is his name? Caleb
2. Who eats more? Caleb eats more in one sitting, but I might eat more thoughout the day if you add it all up.
3. Who said, "I love you" first? Caleb did, but he didn't really say it...he was scratching my back and he started drawing stuff then he wrote out the words 'I love you' on my back and I wasn't sure if that was really what he did and if he was serious. So I looked at him and he had a questioning look in his eye and smiled then I wrote it back on his back.
4. Who is taller? Caleb, but not by much
5. Who is smarter? I think that I have more of the book learnen, but Caleb knows more random facts.
6. Who is more sensitive? Me, especially when I am pregnant.
7. Who does the laundry? Me, Caleb can't complete a load, he might start it but won't finish it.
8. Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Always me, because I am right handed, Caleb sleeps on the left because he is left handed.
9. Who pays the bills? I write the checks, but Caleb makes the money.
10. Who cooks more? Me, Caleb lets Pizza Hut or Wendy's do the cooking.
11. Who is more stubborn? Probably Caleb.
12. Who is the first to admit they are wrong? I will admit it just to avoid the argument (most of the time), Caleb won't admit he is wrong even when he knows it.
13. Who has more siblings? Definatly Caleb. He has 6 I have 2.
14. Who wears the pants in the relationship? At church Caleb does, but other than that I think I get my way more often.
15. What do you like to do together? We love to go to the movies, and out to eat. Occasionally I can convince him to go to a play, usually on our aniversary.
16. Who eats more sweets? Definatly me.
17. Guilty Pleasures? Recently he has decided that he wants to pick up golf so he has bought a few clubs and stuff, but I have a feeling that more is to come
18. How did you meet? I went to Oregon to live with a friend for the summer and he was in the singles ward.
19. Who asked whom out first? The words were never said, but Caleb decided what we did most of the time.
20. Who kissed whom first? Caleb, it was my first kiss and I didn't know what to do.
21. Who proposed? We were long distance dating at the time and we decided that we wanted to get married over the phone, but then Caleb did a proper proposal with a ring at the temple. He didn't say, 'will you marry me' he just said 'I guess we need to make this official.' How romatic right?
22. His best features and qualities? I like his eyes and curly hair (to a point). I also love what a hard worker he is and his willingness to do everything he can to provide for me and our family. I also like his sense of humor.
Now I tag Becky, Derry, and Chelsea.

Grandpa's Cuties

My dad is in England for 7 weeks and he said that he needs pictures of his little girls, so here you go Dad!


Alyssa loves to dance and she usually dances for longer than this, but she gets distracted by the camera easily.

4th of July

I realize that these pictures are sort of late getting up, but my computer crashed and I didn't have a chance to download for a while, but better late than never. We went to the parade in the morning and Alyssa liked the fire trucks and police sirens the best, but she also liked the floats with the beauty queens on them, she thought they were Barbie and princess.





We also let Alyssa play with poppers while we waited for the stadium of fire. She threw some of them but she mostly placed them gently on the ground and steped on them. There was also a flag blowing in the wind near by and she danced around it so I took a few pictures.





Megan didn't really care what was going on, but she was there too.

I was walking by Kiddie Kandids in the mall and they offered to take pictures of Megan for free and I would get a free 8x10 for my time and I never miss up a free opportunity. So here are the pictures, I think that they turned out really cute, but I am a little biased.

I'm having technical difficulties with my computer and camera (I got a really nice one from my dad because he bought himself an even nicer one) so hopefully I will get pictures and stuff up soon.

Swimming

Alyssa loves to go swimming, and I would take her more if I knew how to handle both kids at the same time by the water. Anyway, we went the other day and it was really fun. Alyssa went down the slides and just splashed around with the other kids. She was most amused by the fact that other kids had Ariel on their swim suits as well, she made friends with several. We also saw one of the actors from Singles Ward (it was the fat blond guy).
Mommy and Megan enjoying the sun!
