May 2017

Jordyn loves to play peek-a-boo through my legs.

Ladybug festival was a hit this year. We didn't get there early enough to get any ladybugs but the kids loved the activities and cookies. :)

We celebrate first birthdays at McDonalds. The kids all look forward to this tradition. Easiest birthday ever. 

Kenzie and her preschool teacher, Miss Ann
They have a really fun bike park here in Daybreak. Thayne rode Tyson's bike so he could try it out.

Spring/summer means the boat ramp is opened up. 

We visited grandma and grandpa Van Tassell's grave on memorial day.
Mini triathlon at my cousin Michelle's house. Cameron's awesome bikes were fun to watch.

The family that exercises together. 

These girls LOVE sleepovers at Aunt Joy's house. I don't blame them. She's one of my favorites too.

April 2017

Warmer weather!!
We met up with some friends from Twin Falls one afternoon. We love seeing our friends.
Kindergarten visit
Stake fireside. Teeny tiny bible
Tyson's 9th birthday - once again on General Conference
Puzzlie while listening to conference
Kids funny phrases - mostly Kenzie quotes
Kenzie (super excited): did you know that your ear has a drum?

K: what's in our bodies mom?
M: heart lungs and blood tissues
K:What else
M:bones kidneys
K: Kitties! I don't have any kitties in my body

K: on Valentine's Day Tyson made my heart broken

K: when I grow up I'm going to marry Uncle Kerry -( this changes a lot)

K: "we did something funny yesterday. We drew on the car with our finger."
Apparently my car needs washed

Kenzie sings I am a child of God
"I am a little child"   ...    "with parents kind of dear"

K: "I lost my testimony. My testimony is gone."
 Kenzie was screaming it in the middle of sacrament meeting. Her testimony was a piece of paper she had colored and referred to as her testimony. Tyson had been writing a talk and wrote his testimony. Kenzie had to do the same. All was fine and dandy till the testimony got lost...

K: Just want sister to get an iPhone for Christmas

🎶last Christmas I gave you my heart...
Kenzie: we sang that song in my nursery

Lexi: (got her ears pierced and wanted to show her church teacher) "mom, I can't wait! He won't even recognize me"

Lexi: she got me seashells for Christmas. Her explanation "I bought you seashells because you never let me take them home" :) ha! Now whatcha gonna do?

K: I don't remember what it was like to be a Little kid

Jordyn would giggle and giggle when we put her in the swings. So. Cute.

BYU's ballroom concert

Soccer season started. The three oldest are playing and it has been so cold! :(

Scouts took a trip to the fire station

We hiked the Y with the two oldest. Lexi wanted a picture with this sign because she is 7 years old
and Tyson is 9

We closed on the house we bought! We don't move in till the end of June but we are home owners once again.

Fun at Aunt Joy's house

BYU bean museum with friends


This girl LOVES food
STEM night

We had a friend party for Tyson and Lexi at the pool this year. Pretty easy and low key. Lexi wanted to invite everybody. Tyson wanted to invite 1 friend. We talked him into 2 friends.

Daybreak home and garden show

Kenzie falls asleep in the car all the time. She is definitely my best napper. Tyson and Lexi gave up naps way earlier
Another trip to the Ronald McDonald room at the hospital
Kenzie and Lexi could do crafts all day long. The
