Thank you for all of your warm thought and prayers. It is with great joy and a full heart that I can tell you front pack has made its way back into our lives.

I think the saying goes if you love something set it free, if it comes back to you it was meant to be.

I found the front pack rolled up small in a pocket of my double stroller that I never use. I drove into the garage yesterday and it was like the front pack was calling me. I jumped out of the car and looked in that spot. I am not kidding I got a little teary eyed when I saw it. I have not known how to be a good mom without it. I took Peyton to the store the other day and I just held her because she is too small for the cart.

Front pack carried PeyPey at Disneyland all day yesterday. Now I can go on vacation and carry my girl around the airport in peace. Pacific Northwest please cool down because we are coming up.

R.I.P. Frontpack

Front-pack thank you for all of the times you carried my children around. You were a good friend and you will be greatly missed. This is one of the last pictures that we have of you. We lost you at the Fair and life will never be the same. Thanks for the memories.

O.C. Fair We Love You!!

Tanner at 5 months at the OC Fair.
Peyton at 5 months at the OC Fair.

Our litle family of 4.
Holy Cow! I love Tanner's new smile.
We went to the fair with Derek, Jackie, Derek's mom and nephew from Hawaii. All of the boys went down the big slide. We went on canned food drive night. We got in for free and got a free ride.
It was a great night. There were a lot of special people there and we love to people watch. I can see why it isn't Mark and Kristen's favorite place, but we love it!!

HAPPY 4th of JULY!!

We had a wonderful 4th of July with Mark and Kristen. Kipp had to work so we spent the day with the family. The kids got a good lunch before we started all of the fun.
The first thing that we did was a parade around the block. Jafta rode his big boy bike, India rode behind her Daddy, the babies rode in the double stroller and Tanner rode on his scooter.

This is how Tanner started the parade.

This is how we ended the parade. The block was a little long.

I love this little girl. I bought the little girls matching hair bows and they looked so cute.
Little Karis at 2 months old. She is so skinny compared to Peyton. Peyton is not messing around when it comes to her big girl thighs. That's my girl.

India wore two dresses and looked so cute in both of them. I really wish that Tanner loved his cousins!
They are watching/taking part in a marshmallow war.
We had a great day! Happy Birthday America.

Downtown DIsney

Sorry it has been so long since my last post. To say we have been busy is an understatement. I have had my hands full taking care of my two babies and my hubby. Kipp's knee is getting a lot better but he is still working hard on his recovery. This week we went for our first family outing in weeks. We went to Downtown Disney to meet Uncle Aaron.
This was the first time that Uncle Aaron got to see Peyton. I think it was love at first sight.
Peyton loved watching the fireworks with her daddy.
This is Tanner's new smile. He is such a happy boy and a great brother.
Tanner is 2 and some days he reminds me of that very clearly. We are working on listening and not hitting. That might be the theme of the summer. I think I say, "Hands are for hugging, not hitting," about 100 times a day. He is an amazing boy 99% of the time and the rest of the time he helps me work on my patience.
At Downtown Diseny they have a huge Lego Store that Tan loved playing in.
We have been listening to this kids worship CD a lot lately. After every song Tan says, "Yea Jesus! We love you!"

At Downtown Disney they have musicians all around and we were listening to a singer named Michael. Tanner was dancing to the music then when the song was over he yelled, "Yea Michael, we love you!"

That kid cracks me up every day!
