Baby Steps

This is a proud moment for us! I love this stage in a baby's life! It's one of my favorite parts of being a parent. They are just so cute!I love see their little legs move and take those small steps. It's amazing how little by little he gets better everyday at it too. It's so true how step by step we grow and learn in our lives just like our little man! I learn so much from my kids! You go little man!

Happy Birthday Rhonda!

Happy Birthday to my mom today!! She is known by Rhondizzle in our family! and she is Fo-Shizzle!! Meaning she is always there for us and is a great listener! I'm so grateful to have such an awesome mom! She always has a positive attitude and is a friend to everyone she meets. She has taught me how to use money wisely and buy things only if its for a really good deal. She treats our friends like her own kids and she makes everyone feel welcome in her home. She is such a good grandma and loves to play with her grandkids. She took us down to Zions in her van and let Mayley watch lots of movies in the back. We got to go visit our great great great grandfather's grave. That was super exciting for her because she loves to do Geneology! I have a strong testimony of Temple Work because of what my mom has done for our ancestors. I have been able to do lots of temple work for my ancestors and it is a humbling experience. She is a good example to me and I love her tons!

We are gettin a fence!

We are finally putting up a fence in our backyard. We worked all day last saturday on it. Bry even let me dig a hole with the jackhammer! It was fun. Bry's Dad, Brad, Kerri & Kaci came to help and play along. It was a lot a work and we are forever grateful for all of their hardwork they helped us do :)
This is a pic of the 3 tired men! They worked in one of the hottest days yet this spring!
This is the view of the job they got done! While they were working we played with the kids in the mini yellow pool. Kaci and Hunter had a blast splashing around. Their birthdays are only 6 days apart.

This is my all time favorite picture I got of the bubs! We put on this hat so his head wouldn't get burned! It's the cutest thing ever. He is happy kid.

Father's Day Fun

We went to the Call's house for Father's Day! Everyone contributed for a yummy dinner! We had steak, twice baked potatoes, corn on the cob, rolls, & pineapple sherbet dessert with rasberries and bananas in it! We went and played in the backyard later on. Lynda has always wanted a firepit in her backyard and she finally got one!! So we roasted marshmallows and Mayley and Bry had fun riding bikes and climbing on the cars! We missed Lynda and Hayley. I'm sure they are having lots of fun in Hawaii though!

Grandma and Grandpa Mc"Donald"

My Grandparents were here visiting for a couple days. We don't get to see them very often because they live in Wyoming. They love to spoil Mayley and Hunter. We got to go down and have dinner with them the other night. Mayley loved reading books with Grandma and Loves to give Grandpa Hugs. We are pretty lucky to have them here with us! We love them a lot!

Potty is the best way to Party!

Mayley is our little superstar! Bryan being the wonderful dad that he is got her potty trained pretty fast!! We are super excited to have her panties and going in the potty. We can even go out around the town and she will tell me when she needs to go. We got her an ElMO potty that she loves to sit on and go! That always helps! Bryan was super consistent with her! She loves to wear her mermaid and Dora panties all the time!! This is a huge thing for us since diapers was a big expense at our house with 2 little ones!! What an awesome blessing to have a good girl that loves to go! :)

Grandma "Donald" bought her some Dora Panties and she couldn't wait to put them on the minute that they were given to her!

There is always a first for everything!

There is a cute girl in my ward that is having a baby soon. so me and my friend thought it would be fun to throw her a baby shower. I have been wanting to learn so bad to make a diaper cake. It was super fun to learn how to do! My friend steph dixon has a friend that has a crafty blog called "Homemade by jill". She has tutorials on how to do fun crafts. One of them was to make a diaper cake. So I tweeked her way of doing it and did my best to make my first diaper cake. I totally thought it was going to be a disaster trying to make but it turned out! :) I had fun making this and would like to do it again. I wish I would've had more diapers but now I will know for next time.
