Grandma and Grandpa visit

We've had a busy month of July. My parents came to visit for the last 3 1/2 weeks. Tyson loved the attention and Thayne and I loved the company and all the free babysitting. We did so many different things. We went to the zoo a couple of times. We went to the mall and to story time. Tyson's favorite part was the escalator riding. We had a fun father's day. Of course we went to Niagara Fall's and Palmyra a couple of times. The Palmyra Pageant got rained out so we only got to see half of the pageant. We ran into my cousin Ben's family and a friend from our freshman ward. That's one of my favorite parts about being so close to pageant - we run into so many friends. We went strawberry picking. Tyson loves strawberries. We went to the movies, to dinner, and mini golfing. My dad and I spent a week refinishing our hardwood floors and painting the pink garage (with some help from the young men in the ward). We went to Fort Erie and had a BBQ on the beach.

We played a lot of spades and settlers. We also continued to train for a 5k. After my parents left, Tyson had his friend Brielle sleepover while her parents went to Toronto for a night. They had a lot of fun. I felt like we had twins. Tyson does not share very well with her and is starting to show attitude.Thayne takes his first set of dental boards this Thursday and we leave for Maryland on Friday and then to disneyworld next week. Wahoo!!!! I'm so excited.

Why is mommy cooler than daddy?

Because when mommy is around, look what I get to play with! Here's how we play dressup when daddy is around.

Who knew a cemetary could be so fun?

Recently we went to Forest Lawn Cemetary on a Sunday afternoon when we were looking for a nice walk. Little did we know that it was the coolest cemetary EVER! Here's a few pictures of President Milliard Fillmore's grave. We're going to take my dad tomorrow and he's going to love it!
