Happy Birthday Easton!

Easton turned 3 years old last week. This kid has grown so much and is a Daddy's boy all the way. He is getting good at drawing and I was so impressed when he was painting with Lydia the other day. He painted himself holding a ball.

This year he got to do a birthday party!

He wanted a monster truck cake...

Jackson and Gavin came over to celebrate with us and the kids had a blast playing together.

Aunt Sarah knows this little man well and gave him a ball catching game and monster trucks!

On his actual birthday he got to open his present from the family. He got his very own little Eleanor.

That night we headed to the Pima County Fair with Grandma and Grandpa Clayton.The kids loved the Egypt exhibit with all sorts of animals.

They ran around and played in the kids play exhibits.

There was these cute old men teaching kids how to make their own rope which was so cool!

They got to turn the crank to twist the rope all up and keep the rope. Probably the coolest thing at the fair.

William thoroughly enjoyed snuggling with Grandma.

And of course the awesome petting zoo. The kids probably could have hung out in there all day. And the tiny baby goats were pretty much the cutest things in the whole world. Makes me want to have a farm every time we go.

Happy Birthday to our big 3 year old!!!

We dyed Easter Eggs at Grandma and Grandpa Clayton's house. The kids had a lot of fun coloring them and I am happy to report we had no messes and no blue dyed children whew!

Easter morning the kids were excited for lots of coloring activities for the car. Apparently the Easter Bunny knew we had some road trips this year ;) What a smart bunny.

William loved his new giraffe toy and smiles and kicks whenever he sees it. 

After church we headed to Grandma and Grandpa Millers for dinner and an egg hunt. The kids each took home like 40 eggs it was crazy and they were in heaven.

Happy Easter!

Zoo Fun

The kids have been loving the zoo especially Easton who is always asking to go to the "animal zoo." By far all of the kid;s favorite animal is the otters. They love watching them swim and we stand and watch them forever. They really like the splash pad there too and because it is already getting warm I let them free to get soaked.

William just chilled as always and got a good nap in while chaos ensued around him.

They got pretty cold though so the next time we went we were prepared with swimsuits and towels. They enjoyed walking around to see animals much better that time. They found a little butterfly friend. They would run around and take turns sticking out their hand and this butterfly would land right on them. It was so fun to watch them get so excited and they played with "speckles the butterfly" for a good half hour.

I was just amazed Easton held still long enough for the butterfly to land on him.

William 4 Months

William The Hawk is 4 months old now! He is growing up so fast it's just crazy.

Although I have tried my hardest to stop him this little man loves sucking his thumb.

He started giggling this month also which is too cute for words. It doesn't last long though so you have to enjoy it while he does it since he is stingy. But he always has a smile for you. 

And he also started to roll from his back to his tummy which is is quite proud of!

Happy 4 Months Mr William!
