We love them!

Canon asked to hold Bridger today and then of course Everson wanted to hold him too which led to me thinking it would be a good photo opportunity.

We love our boys!

William's family!

One of Todd's buddies, Joe, from BYU-H and his mission, was in town with his family and needed a place to stay for a couple nights. Todd hadn't seen Joe in 11 years. We were more then happy to have them stay with us. Joe and his wife, Reiko, were so nice and such easy going guests. Their kids, Tendo and Rhonda were so cute! Our boys loved having new friends stay with us. We loved having them stay with us!

Having fun playing outside. I might have gone a little overboard taking pictures of Rhonda, but with a face like that, how could I not.
The boys loved being bounced by Joe on the trampoline.
Canon, Tendo and Everson played well together.

First Haircut

It was about time that we gave Bridger his first haircut. He hadn't lost any of his newborn hair which made him have a mullet and looked like he was wearing a toupee. Todd did a great job! Sorry I don't have a before and after.

Swim Lessons

Let's just say Everson was not exactly thrilled we signed him up for swim lessons. He is a timid child who does not like new things. Just as we thought he started to cry, and we thought, he will be the kid crying and sitting on the side of the pool the entire time. Thankfully we were wrong. His wonderful swim instructor, Teacher TJ, was amazing. He was able to get Everson to stop crying and coerce him into the pool about 7 minutes after lessons started. Everson even smiled during some of the lesson!

Let's go fly a kite

Everson told me one day that next time we go to Lola and Grandpa's he wanted to go to the beach and fly kites. We told him we would definitely do that and hoped the weather would cooperate with us. Lola and Grandpa bought the boys Star Wars, Toy Story and Spiderman kites. It was a little windier then we would have liked, but the kites flew great and we all had fun! Canon liked collecting some shells and Everson liked to run after and scare the seagulls.

Potty Training

Be warned, the picture below contains graphic images.

Canon pooped in his potty for the first time! It won't be too long when we will only have one in diapers!

Independence Day!

Another fun and eventful 4th of July! We started by going to our neighborhood breakfast put on by our church. Since we were a little late for that the line for breakfast was way too long for two little boys to wait around in so we ended up going back home and cooking our own yummy breakfast. After that we headed over to a neighboring neighborhood to get some snow cones, cotton candy and to watch BJ the Clown. Next in line we heading back to our house for our neighborhood parade which Todd's dad drove his corvette in to start off the parade with Kayla and Will as passengers. Nap time was next on our list then we headed over to Todd's parents house to play some minute to win in games.
At one point while we were all focused on the minute to win it games we couldn't find Canon. He is not one to wander. We looked in every room calling his name, searched outside and Todd even ran down the road to see if he had wandered back to our house. About five minutes went by when I stood there in their dining room thinking where the heck could he be when I heard a noise that sounded like a toy got dropped. Keep mind we had been playing all the games in the dining room and living room. So I took two steps in the direction of the noise and looked behind the recliner and there Canon was, sitting there playing nicely with a couple toys. I was very relieved he was found, and I tried to explain to him that when we call his name that he needs to answer, and the reply I got was, "no."
Besides the minor heart attack we had when we couldn't find Canon, the games were so much fun. Following all of us mastering some skills we never knew we could in the games we had a BBQ with lots of delicious food.
Then it was time to head up to the field in our neighborhood to play and visit until it got dark and the fireworks started. Everson and Canon didn't like how loud the fireworks were. Everson eventually got over it, but Canon's hands remained on his ears the entire time. Bridger slept through all of it, which was what we were hoping he would do. All and all, it was a busy fun day!

Fun in the sun

The boys loved playing with the new sprinkler ball Everson got for his birthday! The loved running through the water, drinking the water, and of course beating up the ball.
