Xander turns 3

I can't believe my little boy is three! He is growing up so fast and getting bigger and bigger. So I usually try to make the kids cakes (no other decorative baking). Past years have't been so bad, this year however, not so cute. Xander asked for a ice cream train cake. At least it tasted yummy:)

So we did all his favoite things..... Train ride to downtown Denver...

Mac and Cheese Lunch.....

Carmel candy apples with Grandpa, Grandma and Aunt Erin....

And water balloon tosses in the backyard. Happy Birthday Xander!

Gavin's Graduation

Kind of silly they have graduation for Pre-school, but I think it is more for the parents than the kids. Graduating from childhood to growing up. Gavin will start kindergarten in August and even though he is very ready, I'm not too sure I am. We were so lucky to get such an amazing teacher this year. We will miss her tons. Congrats Gavin:)

Perfect Day

We love to hike and some go better than others, but this was one of those perfect days, not to mention perfect picture.

Happy Mother's Day!

How lucky we were to have Jason's grandparents come for a visit over Mother's Day weekend. We just love getting to see them and can't believe they are still making the drive from Utah to visit. I love seeing them surrounded by all of their family and get teary seeing what has come from just the two of them. I am so grateful my children have these treasured times with them. Thanks you two, we all love you so!
