Swim lessons (round 2)

We did a second round of swim lessons for the boys right before school started. I got them goggles to wear and it made such a big difference. They are so much more excited to go under the water now.

And they both passed!


(going down the slide, and especially off the diving board are a big deal for him. I am so proud of the progress that he made!)

I am so sad that summer is almost over :( But we had a great one. I loved doing our summer fun list!

Parker's first day of Preschool

Oh, this already makes me so sad to look at these pictures. Parker has been so anxious to start school, he has asked about it every day since his birthday in April. somehow, it still came to fast. How can my baby be in school !?! He isn't quite as "detail oriented" as Layton is, so I am excited to see how he does in school this year. Miss Christy is amazing, and really knows how to bring out the best in kids. We have loved every second of her teaching our kids!

Anyhoo, today was Parker's first day of Preschool.

He was so excited, and couldn't hardly stand sitting still for some pictures :)

Getting to the school, he took off running for the doors :)

His cute cousin BrookLynn is in his class!

Our favorite teacher ever Miss Christy!

This picture is horribly overexposed, but this is when I went to pick him up. He was the first one running out the doors with a huge smile on his face. I am so sad that I didn't have the chance to change my camera settings so you could actually see his darling expression :(

Cove Fort Days

The boys and I went down to Cove Fort when they were doing the annual Cove Fort Days. The boys hadn't ever been before and they had lots of fun looking around the fort :)

Bike Jumps...

Heaven help me... Lance thought it would be a great idea to set up some bike jumps for the boys one night while I was working. So the next morning they went outside to play, and then came back inside begging me to come take some pictures of them. :)   Ha haha, they were so excited because they wanted to take a picture and show it to Isaac (their cousin & best friend). And so it begins....

Parker has the blue helmet and Layton's is red (and I am trying hard to stop dressing them alike, it is an addiction!)

Bird Watching...

One of the things on our summer fun list was to go watch birds. So we went on a little bike ride up the canyon, and the boys watched out for all kinds of birds with their binoculars. I love this summer!

Clever Parker :)

Parker was eating his breakfast cereal and of course we have a rule that they have to be at the counter or table to eat. He was frustrated that he couldn't see the tv that was on, so he made his own little table from the ktichen stool :) I sure love this sweet boy!

Cute Layton, waiting for his dad to come pick him up for a big day riding horses and checking cows on the mountain.

Happy Cows come from Fillmore!

All of our pastures have been beautiful this year because of all the rain! I took some pictures for my Dad to document our happy cows!

This is "#1" Lance's cow that his grandpa gave him and he has had since a calf, he is very proud of #1 and we always have to check on her :)

Our brand is a Keyhole, I am so proud of this brand and the good name that my Grandpa, my Dad, and now Lance have made for our family and for our "Keyhole Ranch"

And no herd is complete without the bull :)
