Fathers Day/a day in Trevors life/Happy Birthday/waterfall

A Day in the life of a child

Trevor decorated his face with lipstick and then he decided he needed to tweeze.  He spends entirely too much time around his mom.
Maybe you can see the lipstick better on this picture.  This face Trevor is pulling reminds me of one of the faces I made in a baby picture... If I find it I will compare and show.

Being locked down in a booster chair doesn't stop Trevor.  He decides he's going to walk around anyways.
 The kids enjoy dressing up.  I have quite a few dress ups for girls, and Trevor just enjoys them too.
 Lincoln is quite the knight.

 BBQ at Uncle Steve's

 I liked these pictures so I wanted to make a history of it on the blog.  This is a picture of my grandma Salisbury Pope (my dads mom)
 My dad, Clark
 My grandpa's fiance
 My grandpa Salisbury (my dad's dad)
 Uncle Steve (my dad's brother), it was him that let us have a BBQ at his house.  Thanks Steve!
 my cousin Andrew, Aunt Cindy (dad's younger sister visiting from Flourida) and Ember (Cindy's daughter) Isaac is pulling a funny face in the background and that's got to be my favorite part about this picture.
what grown-ups do best.  Steve has a beautiful yard and you can kind of see some it from this picture.

Happy Father's day to Isaac!

 I didn't do as much for Fathers day as I was planning this year.  Sorry Isaac I was thinking the new camera would be your fathers day.  However, I decided to make him breakfast in the morning.  Blueberry struesel muffins from scratch, Cheesy eggs, and Orange Julius.  It was yummy.  Isaac deserves much more for being such a great father.  I'm so glad that he is in our family and I have him to help raise these monkeys.

 Happy Birthday Grandpa!

 June 19th was my dad's 59th birthday and we got to celebrate it with him at daycare.  That evening my dad was volunteering at the temple.  That day we went on a walk to the Innovative campus where they have a decent size pond with ducks and fish.
My dad has been coming to help me in daycare every Tuesday and Thursday because I have 3 kids under the age of two and that makes the amount of kids I can watch altogether 6.  Any amount over that I need a helper.  It has been nice to have my dad here.  He is very good at playing with the kids while a do the boring stuff like meal prep and meal clean-up.

 I made him a very tasty lemon cake.  It turned out awesome if I do say so myself.
 We of course held hands and sang to him in a circle.

Waterfall update

This is the waterfall right before we planted everything.  (I forgot to get a picture before we placed the plants on the black stuff)
this is after we planted plants, and put in mulch.my favorite plant that we added,  "the Lily of the Nile."
Its easy to get a good picture with such cute kids.
this is me after
this is Isaac.  Lets just say he is glad that it is basically over (we still need to add our outdoor lighting)
We are happy with the results and the sound it makes is very relaxing.  All are invited to come and enjoy with us .

Family pictures

We got our family pictures done in April and I almost forgot about them.  I do not have photoshop on my computer so these pictures are raw material, the real deal.  Oh, and in case you come across our blog and see this post there are 4 other posts I have done in the last 2 days so have fun going through all the pictures.  Its feels good to be all updated.  I like to put pictures on here incase our computer crashes and I have no pictures.

 Everyone in the kitchen
 Grandma Jones, Donene, took the kids up to see the chickens. 
Lincoln feeding the chickens some grass
I liked Lincoln's face in this as he's trying so hard to get the grass in the cage.
This walk of Lincoln's shows his personality

Lincoln thought he would wrap himself up with a rope.
Lincoln and Sofia, cousins.  I think they could pass for brother, sister.
When I said Lincoln lets get a picture with your cousin, he thought it would be funny to play like he was asleep.

The weather was rainy and then sunny and then rainy all day.  Wasn't quite sure we were going to be able to do family pictures outside or the easter egg hunt.

 The annual easter egg hunt! (In June cause that's when we could get all together)

Isaac showing Trevor that the gift has his name on it.
Lincoln discovering that it has HIS name on it.
