Our summer so far... ok really just until June

Hold on to your pantalones because this is a really long post... I promise more is coming so you can be completely updated on our summer but it's really late and I am really tired! So like I said there will be more to come... soon I promise!

The next few pics were taken at Kelsie's high school graduation at the E-Center.
I LOVE this picture of Zach and my dad, they are so cute!!

Grandma and Aunt Michelle with Zach.

Paul made Zach slide down the rail, I don't know if Zach thought it was as cool as Paul did.

Kelsie and Zach. Congrats graduate!! We are so proud of you Kelsie!!

Aunt DeAnn & Zach reading. I just couldn't resist taking this pic I thought it was too cute!

My friends little girl sat her apple down on our coffee table and walked away, just about 2 seconds later Zach made his way to the table and started eating her apple. Tessa saw him and freaked out so I decided to give Zach his own apple.

He loved it!
Look at that thing...
I don't know if you can see it in his hands but he ate that thing down to the core! He loved it and I bet it felt so good on his litte gums.

Ok so we tried the whole fish thing again... Zach loved to watch them, he would just hang out and laugh at them it was the funniest thing! They died but they lasted a lot longer than the last ones!!

We got Zach a new carseat and he loved the box it came in! It cracks me up to see this, did you ever play in the box when your parents got a new fridge or washer and dryer? I totally remember the forts we made with the huge boxes! :)

Zach in his new "big boy" car seat! He loves to face forward!!

Ok so I had this awesome idea for pics on my ties for tots blog. We got together with Marci & Dan, Becky & Jason, and Jill & Tyler and we all have boys so I thought it would be an awesome opprotunity to take some pictures. OH BOY!!! Seriously it was the most comical thing ever, 6 boys under 4... come on really!? There was no way that we were going to get them to all look at us at the same time! It was a nice try and a fun time, I don't think we have laughed so hard in a while! Good job boys, and to all involved!

Zach got his first tatoo... obviously it's not real! Doesn't he look so tough! Just ignore the boogers! LOL

Ok maybe I am a bad mom but I am totally laughing at this pic. right now!! I had to take a picture before I could help him it was just too funny!! Zach hates his carseat sometimes, I think he just hates to be restrained. We had just gotten home and I unbuckled him because he was freaking out but as you can see I did not take him out of the straps. I grabbed the sacks in the car and turned around to grab Zach who was again freaking out. This is what I found... I had to take a picture! Don't worry he was not hurt, just really mad!!

While Marci & Dan were on their cruise Paul, Zach & I had a play date with Braden. We took him to the zoo & we had so much fun! You wouldn't know by the pics but I promise I was there too! :)
On the train ride!

The white alligator... Braden made me go back with him to see it twice! That thing freaks me out!!

There is a cougar in the cave thing to the left of the boys. Braden is a true BYU fan so we had to take a pic with a real cougar!

The boys haging out with the tigers at Asian Highlands.

Zach loves the swing at Marci & Dan's house... thank you Ryan(Dan's dad)!

As you can see, Zach also loves the fridge! Everytime I open it he boot scoots right over and gets in, he got really fast!

This is what my kitchen has been looking like for the past few months. Zach takes everything out of the cupboard plays for a while then finds something new and I clean it up... eventually the vicious cycle begins again. I think because we have a lot of family and friends with kids I realized long ago you have to pick you battles. This is one battle that I don't pick, I just let him play and when he moves on to something else I clean it up. :)

He plays in the cupboard and then moves on to the drawer.

These are pics of Zach when he first started to crawl...

Look at this face, he is so cute and so mischevious!

I was sitting on the floor playing with him and taking pictures when I realized why he likes to get in to everything... this is his view. I mean look at all the cupboards and drawers and the dishwasher. How could you not get into everything? :)

My cute little helper!


Brandon & Amber

He's growing up too fast! Sorry we couldn't make it to his party--we were in Idaho for the 4th. Hope he had a great birthday!

Dan and Marci Family

That is the longest post I've ever seen. But cute pictures. Looks like a fun June.

Ames Family

I love the ties picture, Jill! That is darling! The colors all look so fantastic together. And the tattoo is hilarious. The picture of Zackers climbing in the dishwasher is a hoot---all too familiar!!!
