Santa Cruz

Nothing says summer like a trip to the can almost taste those corndogs and soft serve icecream..So fun! The boys LOVED the rollercoaster!! Yes, even Noah had big smiles after riding it! They must have gone on it 4 times!! Crazy thing was we had to fluff Logans hair to get him to meet the height problem. But even with the fluff, he was too small for the bumper cars!! Ha Ha!!

Then off to our 'Kamp' site...we love the KOA...all the fun without the hassle!! They have these great bikes you can rent and the kids love ridding around the camp site!

Getting our toes in the sand..

and what summer trip wouldn't be complete without SMORES!??! Oh yeah, bring them on...

Our cozy this is camping in style!!!

We LOVE summer!!

With the boys birthdays in april/may it was time to have their pictures taken. Not that I really need an excuse...I really just love picutres. I love the way it captures a moment in time in a way my memory can't. I am fortunate to have a friend that takes amazing pictures. I love how these turned out!

BIg Brother

Noah has taken on the job of mowing this past year, and actually loves it. He has always been an outside guy and hard worker. I love how he has taken his job as mower and big brother and combined them. He makes sure Ethan has plenty of bubbles in his mower before they start and makes sure keeps a pace his little brother can keep up with.

Its enough to melt any moms heart:)

Our Garden

After we got rid of the dog, it was my dream to plant a garden. The boys worked hard to get my garden back in shape..and we have since reaped the rewards!! We have fresh herbs, raddish, cucumbers, tomatos, zuccini, peppers and MORE! I even got a Kumquat tree! YUM!

The Prophet said to plant a garden so that is what will do....
