The Hunt

Tayden finally went on his first hunt with Scott! He has been looking forward to this day for years and was beyond thrilled when it rolled around. And they even got a deer! He loved spending time with his dad and grandpa, but he really wished there would have been more walking involved. He thought they were going in an actual forest, so the lack of trees was a surprise. Turns out he loves donuts like Scotf and ate most the box. And even got to have a coke as long as he didn't tell his mom. When I asked what his favorite part was, he said kicking the deer down the hill. For some reason, he found that so comical. Having an all boys trip in the mountains made his heart happy. And when that boy is happy, so is this mom. And I was even happier when he came home safe and sound. (I may have bawled like a little baby when he left....) I'm so glad we are in Idaho and Scott can share these experiences with our boys and pass on the family tradition. 

This picture of three generations doing what they love warms my heart. It's just so special.

Birthday #5

My third baby turned five yesterday. Cache is FIVE!! He had a great day and we loved celebrating him. At five, cache is just the best. He is inquisitive, smart, attentive and cute as a button. He still loves to talk. A lot. Like, never ending. It can be frustrating at times, but more often than not its endearing. 

Currently, cache loves tarantulas. He can tell you fact after fact about the yucky spiders. 

He is picky about his clothes. Not how they look, but how they fit. 

Loves preschool! And soaks up information like a sponge. 

He has the wildest imagination. He is always telling us off the wall stories about one thing or another. 

Cache loves his big brothers and is turning out to be quite the big brother himself. 

Likes to help me in the kitchen. 

Will not stop talking until he gets his point across. I could be yelling at the top of my lungs and he'd still be telling me whatever it is he has to say. 

Cache also had a huge growth spurt. Seriously, HUGE. So much so that the nurse wanted to recheck his height after he looked at last years stats. He went from the 30th for height, all the way to the 50th! He grew just shy of four inches and is now 43 inches tall. His weight went up the same as well. He was in about the 30th and is now recording in the 50th! He weighs 40.6 pounds. I am so excited! Considering how small he has been all his life, it's exciting watching him grow! 

I love Kys face in this picture! 

love my Cachee Boy. He is one in a million and I thank my lucky stars he's mine.

Geckos and Temples

This weekend was great! We have two things very much worth mentioning.

The two older boys having been saving up their money and doing extra chores so they could buy their very own leopard geckos. And this weekend, the accomplished their goal. It was so neat watching them work hard and succeed. And they love their lizards. 

Goofy Ky. 

Just one sweet boy with one sweet smile. 

Scott arranged a babysitter and took me to the temple. It has been a long time since we visited the temple together and the first time we've hired a babysitter in Idaho Falls. It was a great evening.

Family Pictures 2017

I can't believe I forgot to post our family pictures!! Jodie took the best pictures for us and I love them all!!

And if you are wondering why Beckett isn't wear any shoes....its because they felt weird and he was having a total meltdown about them. So I finally just said, "Take them off!"
