Columbus, OH Trip

Jayden wanted to swim in the hot tub because it was making so many bubbles. He couldn't stop laughing and playing in them. He kept saying, "bubbles".

Colby teaching Jayden how to kick when he is "swimming"

Colby and Kylie, she did so good. She didn't cry or anything she just liked being in the water. Yes, there are no pictures of me on purpose. I think I would blind people with my whiteness!
Jayden and Colby with the elephants at the Columbus, OH Zoo. Jayden didn't want to turn away from them long enough to get a good picture.

My two tigers!

Just another pic where I was lucky enough to have Jayden look at the camera.

Sweet Kylie! This is what she did most of the time at the Zoo!

Me and Jayden with the Kangaroo's. They let you walk around with them, it was pretty cool!
Just so you know, my hair has never been flat since we moved out here. The humidity was bad that morning and all my work gone in a few short minutes :)

So the summer is going fast and we decided to go to Columbus, OH this weekend for a little getaway. The hotels are cheap, the temple is there and they have the best custard ice cream place ever! This time we went to the Zoo, it is an awesome one, and swam in the hotel pool. It was a lot of fun and a much needed get away. We probably won't do something like this very often, they kids were so tired on the way back that a 3 1/2 trip turned into a 5 hour trip because we had to stop so much to calm them down. Oh well, MEMORIES!

Go, Go Steelers!

Jayden and I decided to build a fort on this day. He had a blast, if he wasn't in the fort he was flopping on the blanket on top to collapse the fort. He kept peeking out under the chairs and saying Hi!

So Kylie is quite a determined girl. She is 3 1/2 months and can roll from front to back and back to front (isn't this early?). To turn over she will grab the blanket like in this picture and grunt and before you know it......

She is like this and smiling. So proud of herself!

Jayden wanted to hold Kylie and help feed her. Most of the time he is not interested at all but this day he was having fun.

So NFL football has started. I know it is just pre-season but this is my plug for the best team out there. I feel a back to back coming on. She is our little Steeler cheerleader!

I know Jayden is crying, but the story is about his shirt and backpack. My Mom sent him a Buzz and Woody shirt and he LOVES it. He wears it all the time. Well we were in Wal-Mart one day and he saw a Buzz and Woody backpack and loves it as well. He puts his books and toys in it and wears it around the house all the time, it is so funny.

Jayden likes to play the piano, this day he set up his bear to play with him. He was so proud to have gotten both of them on the bench.

Jayden loves to help when I change Kylie's diaper so I thought why not have some fun with it. He took the diapers off and put them on his animals for several hours of entertainment. He finally decided he liked them better without them so that he could cuddle them better.

So we have begun the habit of reading our scriptures at night with Jayden. Instead of the real scriptures we have a book with pictures of kids and the Book of Mormon stories. Now during the day he will grab his scree-shurs and sit and read them.

Kylie was in the pack and play and Jayden with his incredible climbing abilities decided to join her. I was doing the dishes and came in the room to find this. They were having a ball together. Jayden was laughing and Kylie was smiling.

I know it has been a long time, I can't believe it took me so long to sit down at the computer and type stuff. I have been busy, we are trying to fit as much in as we can before summer is gone, and I haven't been able to update 'stuff'. Here are a few pictures and stories to update you. I will blog again soon!
