A Thought For The Day

"So many of us make a great fuss of matters of small consequence. We are so easily offended. Happy is the man who can brush aside the offending remarks of another and go on his way."
-Gordon B. Hinckley

I love this man! He left us with countless words of wisdom. Love life and live it to the fullest, don't stress over things that eternally don't matter...

Tyler's Birthday weekend!

Spencer riding the waves with a little push from Grandpa

The kids had a blast at the beach. It was the perfect day, perfect fun!

These two were such a crack up. Lexie and Ashton were having their own little conversation back and forth,back and forth... so cute.

The kids loved going out and watching the seals wash up on the beach
I love my little boys!

Daddy and Ashton. I love Ashy's little arm over Tyler's shoulder


The kids just got drenched on the rapids ride and were loving every minute

Waiting for Shamu to start

Who loves you?

Every night we have our little routine of bathing the kids, brushing teeth, reading scriptures and saying prayers. After we are done, Tyler usually takes Spencer and Kaden into their room, tucks them in and spends a little daddy time with them, just talking about their day. I take Ashton and we read books and sing songs in his room as we rock in the rocking chair. When I am done singing "I Am A Child of God" he knows it's bed time. I say to him, "Do you know Mommy loves you?" He replies, "Yesss". We go back and forth with a list of people that love him. " Daddy loves you, Spencer and Kaden love you, Grandma and Grandpa love you, Heavenly Father loves you, Jesus loves you," "Yesss." He just laughs and thinks it is so funny. Well the other night I said, "Ashton, who loves you?" He looked up and said, "my horsee loves me, Shamoon loves me, and Jesus loves me." I said, "What about Mommy and Daddy?" He said, "No, Horsee, Shamoon, and Jesus love me." Thanks, I'm glad to see I am having such an impact. I guess I should be glad that at least he knows Jesus loves him.

Daddy's day

Ashton has been on a Daddy kick lately, which means for once mommy is jungle gym free (at least when daddy is around) and two, it makes Tyler feel "So Loved". Yesterday we were out looking at houses and Tyler met us from work for a few minutes and then he was off to the church for meetings. As we pulled into the driveway Ashton said, "where daddy's car mom" to which I replied, "daddy had to go to the church for a meeting". He so sweetly said,"Mommy, I put on my church shoes and go to church and see Daddy." He made daddy's day.
