Our Kiddos

Our cute kiddos have been so much fun lately. We are getting on a routine with Ryan's crazy work schedule and we seem to be doing pretty well. Dallin starts preschool and speech in a month so back to the fun of running around. I thought this summer would be long and boring especially with Ryan's schedule and having to adjust to that. But I have to say it has been a fun, relaxful summer. We have enjoyed taking care of our garden, going on nightly walks, watering our flowers, and playing together as a family!!

We went to our friend's house for dinner last Sunday. Hannah is getting her 2 top front teeth so she was a little grumpy. I gave her Jacob's orange juice sippy cup to make her happy. She has played with it before and kind of just chewed on the straw. This time she got oj out. I was shocked. We rarely have straws. I was surprised she figured this out so fast. She now has her own sippy cup with watered down oj.

Our garden isn't doing as well as we would like. This has been a learning year for us. The soil isn't great. We have done garden boxes the last 2 years but Ryan wanted to do a big garden. We are excited to now be getting green peppers, tomatoes, and chili peppers right now. We have been working on it a lot lately. Jacob loves to follow behind Ryan and be has big helper.

Our Dallin is our creative one right now. Whenever he sees tape he grabes it and sets to work on his masterpiece on our window door. He will even grab a chair to get it just where he wants. He would use the whole roll of tape if I let him. At least tape is pretty cheap.
