Girl's Trip to St. George 2011!!

Brett's mom Lucy had the great idea to take all the girls in the family down to St. George to see The Little Mermaid at Tuacan! We ended up seeing it on Monday, July 4th but drove down on Saturday, so we had the entire weekend to party!!

we started the weekend off with some late night swimming!!

followed by some early morning swimming :)

bathing beauties!

Jamie and I decided to take our girls to Las Vegas for some SHOPPING!! Haylee loved it! We went to the H & M at Caesar's Palace and she thought we walked into a big party just for her! There was a lot of dancing and "Mom, I love this place" going on :) After H & M, we headed to the Fashion Show Mall for Lulu and California Pizza Kitchen. It was a pretty quick trip considering the mall closed at 7:00 PM!! :( But, it was way fun and Haylee still talks about shopping in Vegas to this day! I might have created a monster!

July 4th!! Waiting to go to the fair in the park

who needs a $3 bouncy house, when you have a swing and a mom who's willing to give you under dogs to go Super High??

the moment they've all been waiting for!! The Little Girls have arrived to The Little Mermaid!

me and my sweet Haylee at the Tuacan

cute little girls all in a row

seriously the Happiest Girl!! Thanks again Grandma Lucy!!

UT Valley Marathon 2011

This Marathon was #2 for Brett this year! Haylee had a sleep over at my mom's house, so Dylan and I headed down south to cheer him on!

waiting for Daddy to run by!

Here he comes!!

gotta love the digital camera delay! Here's the tail end of an awesome high five between Brett and Dylan

the finisher with some free swag :)

My boys!

an awkward fam pic from a girl who didn't know how to work the camera :) Way to go Brett!!

Making Pizza!!

One of my favorite nights is Pizza Night! We don't do it very often, because it take a lot of planning and preparation on my part. You have to make the dough a head of time, have a clean kitchen counter, and be willing to smell a burning pizza stone for a few days afterwards. But, the kids LOVE it, so it's all worth it!

first you have to roll the dough...

and look really cute while you do it

then you have to move your chairs over to the toppings station and spread the sauce

and make sure you get it ALL over or else it doesn't taste as good :)

next, you stick your cute little tushy out and watch it bake in the oven!

and devour it!

cute right?? That's why it's my favorite night!
