5 Months

Rachel is 5 months!  She is changing all the time!  She is doing really well!  She is such a good little baby...she's really patient with Tyler and I, and is really good at waiting her turn ;)  She's a good little sleeper, doesn't take a binkie (so weird for me!), and is always so good to just come along for the ride!  The poor girl typically either get's woken up from a nap or has to miss one or catch it in the carseat or stroller!  We HAVE to get out of the house everyday, and she's typically really good! 

I just love that little face!

Monther's Day

 This year for Mother's Day we headed up to Loomis to spend it with some family!  On Saturday we had a BBQ/Swim party with Schmidt family!  It was a lot of fun!!
Rachel and her Great Great Grandma Sample!!!
 5 Generations of Mothers!!
 Hanging out by the pool!
On Sunday we went to church, and then headed home to wait for...Uncle/Elder Trevor to call!!  He got to skype with us!  That was so fun to see his face for the first time in about a year and half!  Even Natalie joined the fun via the I-pad!!  So grateful for modern day technology! 
It was a great day...I am so grateful for the mother's in my life and for the opportunity that I have to be a mother to my children! Happy Mother's Day!

Fathers and Sons

This year Steve took Ty and headed to the Father's Sons campout!  These are the only pictures I have, but...they had a blast!  Ty got to play in the dirt, sit around the campfire, sleep in the truck, go on the rope swing, play with the big kids, and have his favorite breakfast...pancakes!!  Pretty much, toddler boy heaven!  I am so grateful for Steve and his excitement to take Tyler to things like this, and teach and show him new things!!  Saying goodbye to mom!
