Company Picnic

Saturday Byron's work had a picnic. It was nice because it was at a part that everyone enjoyed. Both Olsen and Gabriella love to swing. Hopefully when we finally get our backyard put in, we will set up a play set right away.

Gabriella's Toys

Olsen and Gabriella had fun playing with new toys. They have so much fun together. Of course I'm continually telling Olsen to get off his sister, but other than that, they had a lot of fun.

Lovin' the ball carnival from Aunty Ana.

They also had a lot of fun throwing the balls out. (We have got those balls EVERYWHERE right now)

Here is her uma (kiss) face. It is so dang cute that she gives umas now. She even says uma when she makes her kissing face.

Olsen is such a good babysitter of Gabriella's new Cabbage Patch baby. Here is feeding her milk.

He then puts CPK in Gabriella's crib to go "night-night"

He notices she is face down so he makes her more comfortable by putting her face up.

Happy 1rst Birthday Gabriella

Can you believe that little girl is now 1!! I can't believe it. She also seems a little older because she has been walking for the past 2 months, but boy, I can't believe I was taking the ride to the hospital one year ago today. She has brough joy and love to our house.

Saturday we had a party for her with family and a few friends. It was so fun. When I went to the party store that our friend owns to pick up some supplies I told her if she has time to come up to house with the family. Saturday is thier busiest day, but she wanted to donated a jumping castle to the party. Her house was going to be in the neighborhood for another party and would set up on the way. I couldn't believe it. It was so fun to see all the kids enjoy the castle.

Here is Gabriella being sung to.

And now eating her cake and making a mess :)

Olsen and Kelton had a blast jumping on the castle

Olsen got a few good swings at the butterfly

Gabriella enjoying her new baby stroller with a new baby doll

It also taste good too, in case you were wondering

Oakland Temple

These pictures are from when we were hanging out at the Oakland Temple for Byron friend from college got married. Unfortunately we didn't have a babysitter, so I hung out with the kids while Byron went in for the wedding. I did get some cute shots of the kids though.

A girl and a flower

Went up to my in-laws house today for grandma time and took these cute pictures.

These next three are my favorites.

Olsen gave Gabriella a ride around town.

Now he is pushing her around.....

They have so much fun together. Being an only child must be so boring and lonely.

We're back

Wow, what a fun trip. It was so great to see Monica and her family and Tommy and his family. The cousins had a blast together. I was a little sad that the trip was so short, but we filled with good family fun! (oh, and a little shopping too) :) I kid you not when I say I took 400 pictures. Here are just a few, this weekend we'll set up a web page with the rest.

Monica's girls while waiting for the little train at the zoo. This pictures couldn't be cuter

Olsen and Andrew about to leave on the train

Chasing the chickens outside the zoo. We also enjoyed some snow cones and popcorn

Olsen was in TRAIN HEAVEN at the Skopec house. If he wasn't swimming, he was playing trains.

Monday Tommy's clan came over for a BBQ and swim party. So much fun.

The twins napping during the action. For some reason this is the only picture I have of the twins. Oh sad is that? I promise I was holding and loving them the whole time

Nate and Andrew jumping off at the same time and Heather waiting her turn in the back

Most of the kids, and yes, that is Olsen screaming on Heather's lap.

The girls having fun running through the water fountains

Olsen scootin' around the bike path.
