18 months

This little beauty is 18 months this month. She weighs 22 lbs. 12 oz, and is 31.5 inches tall. This little girl rules the roost over here. She gets into EVERYTHING and speaks jibberish most of the time. She is starting to say a few words like mom, dad, snack, ball, bath, etc. We are so lucky to have her in our home. We love her so much!!

24th of July in Snowflake

We went to Snowflake for the 24th celebration and once again TJ had to work, so I took the kids by myself. It was hard work, but the kids were in heaven. It's really nice to get together with family and we missed the ones who weren't able to come.

Riding Chance

I loved this picture of Topher telling the Chance to "stay still". He is a funny kid.

Timmy's 9th birthday

Timmy turned 9 on the 13th! We opened presents that morning, had a bday/pool party my side of the family that night, and had a shared bday party with Papa Rubalcava on Sunday. It was quite the weekend, but it was nice to celebrate our Timmy.
I don't know why he is holding up ten fingers cause he's really 9. :) 

4th of July

The 4th of July was super fun. We made homemade flags, a rice crispy treat flag and dressed up in red, white, and blue. Mom also came into town because she was going to fly out to help Cassie with the new baby. We ate a quick dinner and went to the fireworks. We got a great spot and had a blast with cousins. I think we were the loudest ones there. :)

Cabin '12

It had been about 4 years since we went to the cabin, so we were very excited to go this year. T.J. had to work, so I decided to take the kids by myself. Am I a little crazy? Probably, but we had a really good time. There were lots of hikes, lots of laughs, lots of heat, lots of food, and lots of tears, but it was totally worth it. I love spending time with my family!

Getting ready to approach the crossroads of our lives (an inside joke ;) )

Part of the Gang 

Mila wasn't so happy this morning. 

Neither was Bentley (she was sad that the other kids went without her up the culvert)
