Playing Outside

Her favorite word to say right now is "NO!"

And just this week she started saying "bye" when waving to people. The other day she waved and told us "bye" all morning. That makes five words for her.

Our dahlia is just starting to open up.

She loves chalk....if I don't watch her she eats it.

Because she only has her front teeth sometimes she looks like a squirrel when she is eating.

Fourth Year Anniversary

Today is our fourth year anniversary. We wanted to put up one of our videos from the Temple on our wedding day. Ah, such a good day.

Tonight we dropped Hailey off at the Ashcrafts' and went out to dinner at a great Italian restaurant called Il Fornaio. Such a great place and they really went out of their way for us tonight. Happy anniversary sweetheart!

Happy Father's Day

She is the apple of her father's eyes.

Steve always tells me "Hailey, she can have anything her heart desires... and you,'re on a budget my dear!"

Hailey made her first father's day gift in nursery. The aqua play dough is not proportionate because Hailey wanted to eat it.

Hailey at her best... making her signature squinty eye face.

Judy's Big Day

A couple of weeks ago my mom and I threw our dear friend Judy a Tiffany's themed shower.

Steve said this was the best piece of cake he ever had in his whole life. Judy and I are predictable....we always order this fresh strawberry cake when we stop in at the bakery. It should be no surprise this is what the wedding cake will made of.

And then it was time for a wedding in Palos Verdes
the limo was full of Ashcrafts

Judy and my parents

Brent and Kendra both came back home for the summer.
I am so glad my parents made all of us get braces!

Steve threw all of Hailey's flower petals.

Here comes the radiant bride

Here entire dress was beaded lace and it was gorgeous!

(Hey Steve, if your reading this don't forget next Thursday is our anniversary)
Just in case you can't read my mind:
Yes, I made dinner reservations.
Yes, you have to dress up.
Yes, I would like flowers...even if you have to cut them out of someone else's front yard
Yes, I would like a gift from you wrapped with a satin bow
No, Hailey can't come with us, but you can see her when we get home from dinner.

some of my lovely sisters....too bad Lauren couldn't make it.

With 5 daughters my dad has got it made when he is old!

I love this cute!

She likes my brother because he gives her treats all the time.

She is thrilled to be wearing pink!

making friends

the peacock that roams the neighborhood snacking on the plants in people's yards

After dinner we were invited to make a pit stop and see the fancy resort they were staying at for a few days.

That is Catalina Island in the background.

Believe me I wish I could stay here, even if it was only for a night.

When I came to my senses and realized I would probably never stay here I swiped the soap out of their second bathroom.... meaning I stuck it down the top of my dress. Then I told Judy I was taking it so it wouldn't be considered stealing. It's crazy they even have phones in the bathrooms.

For their honeymoon they are going to Italy in the fall for 3 weeks!
After they return they are going to have a huge wedding reception! Yea for more wedding cake!

Hailey during the week

Enjoying a popsicle before her friend came over to play.

She thinks she is funny.

Another adorable toothy smile.

Time to get clean.

Hanging out at the duck park

Fascinated by wildlife

These are the meanest geese ever! so much hissing! They targeted Hailey and she had to be rescued since they were as big as her.

She was supposed to feed it to the ducks.

I know, she looks surprised.
