Happy Independence Day!

I finished my garage!
A month ago I asked Shane if he would help me paint and organize the garage. He went right to work and started painting and hanging shelves. Wow... it was no small undertaking. He must really love me! Thanks so much for helping me, Shane! (Also thanks to our kindly neighbors and friends, Rob & Shawn!) My goal was to finish organizing it by July 4th.. and I finished it last night. Jada kept saying "THANK YOU MOM!" She had a blast riding her bike in circles in there.. ha ha.


Shane and Rob flying their new planes at the park today. Yes.. another plane!

Watching Daddy fly.
We can never get all of us smiling in the same picture.. ha ha


Amazing.. Chloe is only 4 months old and already sitting up and balancing on this log! Okay.. maybe with the help of photo shop! (I edited Shane's hands out)


Family hike... Chloe sure loves her daddy.

Strike a pose.

This is for you Utah folk. We never have to go anywhere for Independence Day because all of our neighbors are pyros! The big fireworks are not illegal for home use here.. and it's cool but at the same time really crazy! Shane and I grew up with the neighbors doing those cheesy fireworks that spin and light up. This is a short clip taken on my front porch. And this clip doesn't even do it justice. The sky is lit up with fireworks everywhere. It's insane.

Random Pics!



Since I've been such a slacker, I thought I'd put up a few of my favorite pics from the last few months.

Jada and Chloe meeting for the first time.

At the hospital

Chloe's Blessing Dress

Mother's Day

Another Fav Bath Baby Pic



I took these pictures of Jada almost 9 months ago! Where has the time gone?

She's definitely got some natural curl!

The Bell of the Ball. Gotta love the posing. (This was at Elise's Wedding)

Giving me a break. Such a good daddy.

This picture cracks me up.

Sweetest Sisters.

The sweetest Hawaiian princess ever.

Chloe giggling

video

Chloe and Jada have started to develop a special bond. Chloe really lights up when Jada plays with her. I snuck up on them playing today because the giggling was so cute. I can never get Chloe to giggle this much! I guess I'm just not that funny! But Chloe thinks Jada is hilarious for some reason.
