Back to School

Today was the first day back to school... 2nd grader in the house!! Lexi was so excited, she got dressed as soon as she got up. But being the mean mom I am, I made her take her dress off to eat breakfast. ;)
I made Pop-up Pancakes and instead of getting syrup on the dress, she just got a little in her hair.

Once at the school, Lex pretty much blew me off when she saw all her friends. Oh well, at least she was happy.

She had a great first day of second grade!!

M-O-N-T-A-N-A, Montana, I Love You!

This summer we got to road trip it up to MT again. I drove on my own with all 3 kiddos to UT and stayed with Destiny. And the next day, we followed each other to Hamilton. The scenery in the Big Hole is gorgeous, even on a cloudy day.

Enjoying the Farmer's Market

Monkey bars at the park

Destiny and I

We got ice cream at a fun, old-fashioned soda fountain shop in Stevi.

There were a lot of rainy days, but I loved it!

We went to the fair in Missoula, so fun!

The petting zoo

The girls got to ride a miniature pony

Grandpa built a fire and we roasted marshmellows and had s'mores.

Another fun trip back home! My mom drove back to Vegas with us and then flew home. We had quite the adventure!! Thanks Mom!

OTHER STUFF: Benj took a day off! :) We escaped the heat for an afternoon and had a picnic up at Mt. Charleston. I love it up there.

Ava went to an "Enchanted Princess" dance clinic this weekend. She loved it and is starting ballet class tonight.

Our baby girl is 3 months today! Reesey Piecey is:

~rolling over- from back to front. she hates being on her tummy though once she's there.

~ giggling- she's very ticklish

~ smiling and "talking" to anyone who pays her any attention.

I told her to stop growing, but she's not listening!!

Cali Getaway

This last weekend I finally got my day at the beach. We went to Newport Beach and spent the entire day there. It was so much fun. My girls LOVED the ocean (I was surprised they did). They didn't really have any fear, which gave me fear. And Ava did get taken out by a wave or two. They played in the sand, and in their big hole that was already there when we arrived, even kicking some boys out of it at one point. We met up with our friends from Vegas too, who happened to be in California for a wedding. It was fun in the sun and sand... my lint trap on my dryer even had sand in it after doing laundry, lol.

We also visited the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach. The girls loved petting the sting rays the most! It was a fun little weekend trip. Now on to our bigger trip to Montana!
