These were taken Sunday, after church (hence why we are all in pj's). I was just rocking and cuddling Hailee, then Aidan wanted to be held. So I pulled him up on my lap and then of course Xander wanted to be held. So I pulled him up to. By this time Hailee wasn't enjoying sharing me, but I loved it! I love all of my babies and any time they want to be rocked, even if it is at the same time, I'll always have enough room on my lap!

Today was a pretty rainy day but that didn't stop us from getting out. We, along with John, Jada and Owen McFarlene (I hope that's how it's spelled) went to the Bonneville fish hatchery for Free Fishing Day for the kids. It was pretty cool. We had to register when we first got there and then the kids each got their own passport and had to walk around to all these informational booths to earn stamps on their passport to go fishing. They learned about not littering, water safety, animals, wildlife and different species of fish. As you can see they even had some stuffed wildlife there for the kids to touch. They even had some games and then of course they had free fishing. The boys each got to catch two fish. Since they were in the 4 and under category, they fished from tanks that were holding a bunch of rainbow trout. They loved it!! Unfortunately they had to be accompanied by an adult at all times so we were unable to take an actual picture of them fishing, which is to bad because they sure were cute with their little fishing poles. Hence the after shots with me holding the fish with Aidan. We were drenched by the time we got home but it sure was fun....and did I mention FREE! We even got to keep the fish, all four of them. It's a good thing I like to eat fish (wink wink). Fun times!
So we bought the boys a mini blow up pool to entertain them on those hot days...and we finally had a nice warm day yesterday. They were so excited to play in it. They must have stayed in it for 45 minutes! Until they were nice and pruney. Hailee even enjoyed watching them play around and got a bit wet herself.

First of all...no laughing! I was looking through some old pics and realized that A LOT has changed since I was little. DUH! Obviously. I found the pic of the day that my family and I were sealed together for time and all eternity in the Idaho Falls temple. In the photo is my family (my sista Dallas, my mom and dad, my bro Ken, myself, my Grandma A) and the two missionaries who helped through our conversion into the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Lynn Porter and Rob Oaks. We have all sure changed since then. Even Lynn and Rob have changed. How do you like the photo Lynn? Also, the little boy in the pic is my little bro Ken and guess what....He's getting married the end of June! If that doesn't make me feel old I don't know what will. Hmmmm....maybe having three kids already and realizing in just over 4 years I'll be 30! YIKES! Can I also say that I love the hairstyle my mom is sporting! Mom if you are reading this, that was some hot hair.
