Love this one of Kenzie floating on her back!

And most of the time at the pool was spent riding on the Daddy Boat!!!!

They LOVE the pool so much! We may even take them back today!

Last Day of Swim Lessons : (

The kids have been in swim lessons for the past month. I didn't sign up for any lessons in July just because in the past I have been anxious for the lessons to be over. Usually the kids get bored with them. But this year, everyone is having fun. And I am sad to see them end : ( I tried to sign up for more but they are full. On the last day of lessons they have a free day ad let the kids play. They all had fun!

The girls learned a cute little dance today at dance class. Now it is my job to practice it with them so they don't forget it by Thursday. Hmmm......I don't remember signing up for that! I never did very well in my dance classes. Ha ha. Oh well. I snapped some sweet pictures of them as we were leaving for class today....

Can nyou believe that they are twins?! Just look at how much talled Danika is than Makenzie!

Happy Father's Day, Scott!

My kids are so lucky to have such a great daddy!!!

This morning we started our day cuddling in bed with the twins. They were such little lovers and showered us both with hugs and kisses!!! Then we had a 7am breakfast at Ihop!! Yum yum!! After breakfast we took these pictures and then opened gifts. Now we are just relaxing and trying to make room in our bellies for Olive Garden for dinner!!!

I love you, Scott!!! Thank you for always helping with the cooking, cleaning, and laundry. Thank you for letting me stay home with our kids. Thank you for having an never ending supply of energy. Thank you for putting up with my crazy picture taking and matching outfits!!! But most of all, thank you for giving me such great kiddos!!!

Love My Little Miss Makenzie!

Makenzie is definatly my little sweetheart! This morning, I had her sitting on the stool so I could do her hair and she just looked at me and said "Mommy, I love you!" Then she put her arms out for a hug. And when I hugged her she gave me a great big kiss too! Then while I was doing her hair, I asked her what she wanted for her birthday. She thought about it for a while and then she said that she wanted "a very beautiful dress." That's my girl!!!!

I took this picture on Memorial Day, but thought I needed to share a little Makenzie cuteness this morning!

Scott and I are off to Chandler Mall Movie theater today. They have childcare there!!! Yay! We are going to see an adult movie!!! Then we are going to dinner with Scott's parents to celebrate Father's Day and his mom's birthday. And then tomorrow the kids and I will spoil Scott! He has requested that we go to Olive Garden for dinner.

Have a good weekend!

Getting Ready for Disney!!!

I know! We are not going to Disney until the end of July. But I am already getting some things ready!!! First, do you want to see ONE of the dresses my girls will be wearing in Disney???

Isn't it adorable?! I ordered it from Etsy and cannot wait for them to come. I have a couple other outfits already. It's fair to say that the kids are going to be looking adorable!!!

I am also working on their autograph book. I made one for Kyler when we went to Disney World in January and it was such a hit- that I knew I needed to make one for this trip as well. I make it like a scrapbook. Each layout is dedicated to a different character. And they have room to autograph their page. When we get home all I have to do is print the kids pictures with the characters and I have a finished Disney scrapbook! Makenzie came with me to JoAnns yesterday to get supplies. She was excited!!!! Until we realized that they were out of the Disney Princesses chipboard!!!! I promised her that we would get it soon. : )

We had a fun day today. The kids had swim lessons. Everyone did really well!!! Laynee had a blast! Then the twins had dance class. And they were the cutest ones there, of course. Then, this afternoon we all made chocolate chip cookies together. After our yummy dinner (thank you Scott!) we looked through the Disney tour book together. I just love those kiddos! And you too, Scott!

MORE swimming in the backyard!!!!

Are you getting sick of seeing pictures of my kids swimming yet? Sorry!!! But they swim nearly every day. And they always look so happy that I can't stop taking pictures. Trust me- Scott has tried to stop me!!!!

Yesterday Kyler asked so sweetly if they could swim in the kiddie pool in the backyard. There was no way we could say no!

After swimming we went up to the Valley. We stopped at Barnes and Noble and got a tour book for our trip to Disneyland next month. The kids were so excited! They were all talking about which rides they want to go on and which characters they want to see. Laynee said that she wanted to see Minnie Mouse and Kyler said "But Laynee, dont you remember? You are scared of characters." We were laughing!!! But in all seriousness, Laynee is petrified of characters and so we are crossing our fingers that she won't scream every single time she sees a character!!!
After Barnes and Noble, we went to Oreganos for pizza and Pazookie! Yum!!!

Love My Girl

I just wanted to share a Digi Scrapbook page that I made with some pictures I took of Laynee a few weeks ago. I had her hair all French Braided and I thought that was reason enough to take some pictures!!!

Swim Lessons

All four kids have been going to swim lessons 4 days per week for the past two weeks! And they still have 2 more weeks. And since it's going pretty well, I am thinking about signing them up for the third session too. But we'll see.......

Kyler LOVES the lessons. He has come so far from the days of running from the pool screaming with the life guard chasing him down! He is still cautious about putting his head under water. He had a great time going down the slide with daddy yesterday!

Danika, on the other hand, always has her head under water!!!! She lays on her belly with her face in the water. It's strange!!! But she is doing really well with lessons since she does not seem to be afraid at all.

Makenzie loves to swim around the shallow end, but does not put her head under! It was so cute because she had a little crush on her swim teacher!!!!

The first day, Laynee was fine. But then the next 5 she screamed bloody murder through the whole lesson!!!! Then the last 2 she started to calm down a bit. She always insists that she doesn't want to get her hair wet!

So here are my little swimmers....

My Twin Ballerinas!

Yesterday afternoon I took the twins out to shop for Ballet shoes and leotards! They were estatic! I wish you could have seen the way their faces lit up when they saw all the dance shoes at the store! So cute!!! And as we were leaving Target with leotards and tights, Makenzie said "Mommy, I am SO excited!" Awww!!!
So today was the first day of class. It is just a Parks and Rec class. In August Makenzie is going to start going to a dance studio. But Danika picked to do Piano lessons instead. Darn! The dance class is so much cheeper!! Oh well!! I had a blast today watching the girls learn how to jazz walk. How did they get so big??!!!!

Summer Portraits

Scott and I took the kids to have their summer portraits done today. I LOVE picture day. Scott does not!!! But we have a deal that I get professional pictures done 2 times per year: Christmas nd Summer. The kids were behaved today. It was just hard to keep them still! But the pictures still came out good. She took about 150 of them. I am just showing you a sample!

And we had to go for an outfit change!

Aren't my kiddos adorable?!!!
