McCall Idaho

In August (I know it was a month ago...but at least I'm posting!) our family went with the Dickersons up to McCall Idaho. We love love love this vacation. The little boys obviously had a great time. Check out Cody's little bum!

Braden loves to sit in chairs... especially if he has a book to read or in this case a Capri Sun!

The Hose

So Friday was a pretty exhausting day. After Ash and I took the boys to the zoo, I came home and cleaned/chased Braden around the house for 2 hours. I finally gave up cleaning and went over to Ashley's back yard where Dust had turned on the hose for Cade to play with. Eventually Braden found his way over to the hose and proceeded to play in the water for like 30 minutes. We couldn't stop laughing it was soooo funny. So last night at his party he, of course, wanted to play with the hose again, and I couldn't say no, minus the water.


The Stolen Cupcake

Last night at Braden's B-day, we had cupcakes, which was a huge hit with the kids. Cade loved them so much, he kept trying to steal them off the table, but Ash was pretty diligent and was able to hold him off for a while. But of course the second she wasn't looking, Cade snagged a cupcake off the table, and planted his face right in it trying to get as much as possible before Ash took it away. In the end I think he's just way to cute to say NO to.

Braden's 1st B-Day

July 3rd was Braden's 1st birthday, and I would have to say it was a resounding success; thanks to Dust and Ash for letting us take over their backyard and thanks to Snittle for mowing Fluffy's lawn! I decided to do cupcakes, and they turned out YUMMY!!!

We love our newest neighbors, Brennon and Lindsey Miller, and their cute kids, Brighton, Macy, and Zach.

Meagan is the newest edition to our household, and it has been so much fun having her around. She loves little Braden. When he's not getting what he wants, he'll do a little pouty face, "oooo, oooo, oooo..."

Isn't he cute!

Of course, Braden got his very own cupcake. I think I wanted him to like it more than he really did, but he'll eat anything.

Grandpa Lew loves Braden's cheeks.

The Funny Face

So, Braden has this face that Court taught him which we've dubbed "The Funny Face." We've pretty much got him to do it on command, but no one can do it quite like Snittle. You may also catch the little "mmm, mmm" which he does whenever he gets something yummy.


Here's another shot...


We did our first boat run of the season with "the boys". Of course Cade's favorite thing was driving the boat!

Summer Fun

Braden & I are just discovering swimming and since it's finally warm enough to enjoy we're doing our best to get some serious pool time in.

Braden's already picking up Mom's bad habit...Diet Coke. I found him in the kitchen the other day with this. He now has a designated can just for him!

This is my favorite pic of the summer so far. We went to Saint George with Ash, Dust, Mom, and the girls in April. This was on our hike at Red Cliffs. Priceless!!!

When you have a baby, Christmas suddenly becomes soooo much easier (and a lot more fun).  You can just get everyone on your list a picture of your baby...because he is the cutest!  Well, I didn't get everyone that, but maybe just the people who really would appreciate my fabulous little boy...Grandmas & Grandpas, Great-Grandma's and Grandpa's, Aunts & Uncles, and of course Dad.

I copied this idea from a Gap ad.  Mary Clark with DMC studios took our pics, and they turned out fabulous!








Classic Braden Face.

Cousin Cade aka "Snugget"

I always thought Cade (or "Snugget" as we like to call him)  was small until we had little Braden.  Cade is a chunky monkey!!!


This was little Cade's 2nd time on the boat.  The first time, he really loved it and wasn't scared at all (even when Dust dangled him out over the water and Ash about had a heart attack!).  But this time after we got out of the wakeless and started to speed up, he got the saddest look on his face and had great big tears...he was soooo scared (it was adorable).


Cade loves to get into all sorts of trouble at our house.  His favorite toy is our little "eye" that hangs down from our entertainment center that you point the remote controls at.  We finally stopped reattaching it.  We definitely need a new location for it.IMG_1043

Cade loves my glasses (and earings, jewelry, HAIR) pretty much everything he's not suppossed to have.  Ash is about ready to just chop her hair off so he can't grab it anymore.
