I Like to Ride My Bicycle

Look what my little boy learned how to do today!

A Day on the Farm

Holy Cow!
Chubby Bunny.
Gavin's first pony ride.  He shouted, "Hee Haw!" the whole time.  I think he meant "Yee Haw!"
"Eeew!  It's nose is juicy."
Hay Ride minus the hay.  Totally the way to do it!
MeMe and I had fun.
Laynie's response was not what I expected.  I have no idea how you can sleep with all the bouncing!
And then the disaster began... Gavin would NOT get off the tractor.  I actually dragged him kicking and screaming from Wheeler Farm.  
But up to that point it was a pretty fun day!

Big Shoes to Fill



Every morning while we are getting ready Gavin walks up to my parents room and puts on my dad's heavy duty work boots.  He can barely move while he's wearing them.  Today I thought I would try to get a picture.  The only shot I could get was of him attempting to run away from me.  His legs look awesome!  

Bubble Head


I love my son.  A lot.  Really I do.  He can be so cute and so fun!  But he can also be so irritating. These pictures are my attempt to illustrate that.  Instead of having cute pictures of him smiling sweetly, he is screaming "NO!"  at the top of his lungs.  What a little monster!

Our First Parade





We went to the Draper Days parade on Saturday.  It was the first parade that either of my children had attended.  Gavin loved it!  He saw all of his favorite trucks, lots of horses, and picked up a bag full of candy.  It was so much fun.  Thanks Aunt Lizzy and Uncle Travis for the fun day!  

Chop Chop!




Bye Bye Baby Mullet!

Mountain Man




It always feels great when you can fulfill one of your children's wishes! We took Gavin to the mountains. We had a great tin foil dinner and took a couple of short hikes. It was a blast!

My Oh Mayan!





My parents took us to the Mayan Restaurant for lunch. Gavin loved it! We had a really great table close to the waterfall. Gavin loved the water, the cliff diving entertainment and the chips. He ate more chips and salsa than my mom and sisters combined. Then he would hardly eat anything else! Lizzy and MeMe took him to one of the look-out holes in the cliff and let him touch the water. He had so much fun!

Booth of Us



Aunt MeMe has the hook ups! We went to a baseball game at Ken Price Field in Murray, Utah. Because MeMe knows one of the scorekeepers, she took Gavin up to the booth to watch for a few minutes. What a great view! Too bad Gavin was more interested in walking up and down the stairs than actually watching the game.

Sparkling Spectacular


















The Wallace Family Fourth of July gathering was a blast! Not only did the kids have fun and look cute, but Papa Rick went all out on the fireworks! Jamie and Brandon (the resident pyromaniacs) may have enjoyed lighting the fireworks a little too much...Jamie even put aside his "safety first" mentality for a couple of seconds to twist some fuses together. Luckily, there were no major disasters or lasting injuries.
