My mom, Jess and I threw a shower for Jenn tonight! It was so fun and I am so excited to have another baby niece!! Jess and I made the cutest diaper cake and I put a little personalized bracelet for Caroline and some super cute bows! Jenn got lots of fun presents and all the aunts, cousins and Grandma Dunford came to help celebrate this new little arrival :) She should be here no later than the 21st of August but we are all hoping for Jenn's sake the Dr. will let her come on the 14th. It was a great night!

She's so observant and really was on a 'cleaning up' kick! I guess I say that alot :) I loved #12 the most ... when I say that word (it was edited ha!) I usually have to follow it up by saying 'sorry mommy shouldn't say that, I'm not very good sometimes' and she has picked that right up! Oh and she likes to think she has pink eyes because that's a girl color, not blue eyes :) so funny!
We tag ... Brycie Chavez, Ellie Hill, Rex Tintle, Bentley Fisher, and Cade Fox :) enjoy!

We ran up to Pineview today ... I know, who does that on a Saturday afternoon?! We know better and yes it was a crowded day at the beach! We had to take the Sea Doo out for a little spin and April, Dustin and the kids thought they'd join us in our fun! Here's a few cute pics, well maybe more than a few :)

So we finally made it to the rodeo this year! Yeee haw!! Baylee LOVES to go to the rodeo! She loves to get her cowgirl boots on and she wore my hat this year too! She watched every bit of it and when she was disappointed because she couldn't ride on a bucking bull, our friend Brenda took her down to her friend that was in the Posse and they got to ride on his horse :) During the barrell racing she kept cheering on the girl saying "bring her home! faster!" and then during the calf roping she would cheer "yeah! he got away!" every time the calf escaped the lasso! It was soooo cute! Boston enjoyed it while he was awake ... my dad has magic arms and everytime he holds Bos, he falls asleep! It was a fun thing to do for the 24th celebration and they had fireworks and some motocross that we all enjoyed!

Wow! 10 years has flown by! Saturday night we went to my 10 year reunion at the Sheraton in SLC ... we had a great dinner and got to catch up with alot of friends. We went down with April and Dustin and ate dinner with Paige and Cory and Carrie and Mason. It was such a nice night and it was fun to see how everyone had grown up and changed in 10 years (well some more than others :)) Thanks to all those that put it on and spent so many hours to make it so fun for everyone!

We went camping this weekend with the whole Dunford Family :) It was so much fun and we were in a beautiful spot! We got up there on Thursday afternoon and got tents and grills set up. We ate like kings! It's fun to have so many good dutch oven chefs in the fam and we had some great meals and desserts! Baylee felt right at home in the dirt and kept saying she was all black and looked like a dalmation! (which she did!) We attempted a swim in the river but it was a little cold after the feet got wet! We played a new fun game around the campfire called 'Psychiatrist' and it was pretty hilarious! Uncle Robert is so quick on his wit, we were all rolling! The hardest part with Boston is that he's not walking quite yet but really wants to be mobile and crawling in the dirt = really dirty baby! Saturday morning when we woke up Baylee looked at me and said "Mom are we camping?" I said "yep!" "Are we going home today?" "yep!" I said ... to which she replys "But mom I don't want too! I wanna camp forever!" ... Right! I am glad she had so much fun though! We'll be doing it again a few more times before summer is up!

One of my dearest friends got to come stay with us on Monday for a couple days finally! I lived with Mandy out in Denver and I (obviously) moved back to Utah and she had moved back to Boston and recently moved to Kansas City to be with her (almost fiance) Shawn. She has Utah now though in her area for work and got to come out for a business meeting and finally met Anthon and the kids in real life! We haven't seen each other for 6 years so it was way overdue and so fun to have her here to spend some time with us! Baylee loved her immediatley and after about an hour started saying "Mom, Mandy is my friend huh? Not yours, mine!" She got won over quickly when Mandy brought her a Hannah Montana nightgown ! She's obsessed with both jammies and Hannah Montana so there couldn't be a better gift! We had fun catching up at Nielsen's Frozen Custard in the afternoon and had a great BBQ dinner per Tone and Mandy got to try out my Cookie Salad yum! Tuesday we decided to rent a couple Sea Doos and head up to Pineview for the day and it was a perfect day! Anthon took the day off to come with us and brought Morgan (who's been working with him, so if Tone took the day off, Morgan got it too!) and Mom, Jess, Hunter and Brooke came too! After swimming and a quick shower we went to dinner at Tepanyaki (Baylee's favorite and we figured Mandy better try it out!) and then went to Lagoon for an hour to meet up with the family to finish off the crazy busy day! Wednesday we got up and had a yummy breakfast and Mandy had to take off for her meetings :( It was a quick trip but a great visit! We wish Mandy and Shawn lived closer but we'll take what we can get with the business trips! :)
Oh ... just a disclaimer on the Sea Doos you see us riding ... We did end up buying one of them :) Happy day! Anyone wanna go play at the lake?!

Today Tone turned 28! He finally is catching up to me since I'm a whole 4 months older :)and he never lets me forget it! We love and appreciate him so much! Well mom and dad started out the day taking us to Grannie Annie's for some good breakfast and then we hung around home so Tone could rest until dinner. (He's slowly kicking this pnemonia thing but can't push it too much!) We went to Tepanyaki's with Joe, Jess, Ty and Hunter and then went back to the house to play some blongo ball that Ty had made for Tone. It's such a fun game and I think that ended up being the favorite gift this year :) I attempted his mom's recipe of a double chocolatey cake which he was craving and I think it turned out! Nin and Ken and Lukey came over to join in too! Thanks for everyone making it such a nice day! Happy Birthday Babe! I love you so much!
Oh by the way ... My camera is broken and I am lacking good pictures lately ;( I'm collecting them from family and will post more soon! I have an excuse now to get that Nikon I've been eyeing though ;) ha!

Here's a couple pictures of the kids lately that I love! Baylee finally has talked me into getting her a booster, she was going through the 'I HATE CARSEATS' phase and this was the only way to keep her buckled in a safe way :) Boston is in such a fun stage too! He claps, waves and gets excited at the slightest bit of attention! It's so cute! I love these two!

Tonight we went to the Heart and Journey concert! It was great! Tone says he liked Heart better but I'm more of a Journey fan :) We haven't got a date night in for a while so thanks mom and dad for watching the kiddies! Not only did they take the kids, they traded us cars for the night so we got to drive their little sports car vs. our big family cruiser! We met our friends in Salt Lake at the Chili's close to USANA and then headed out for the concert! It was about as fun people watching as watching the concert! There was some funny people there! It was a good pre-birthday present for Tone! Here's some pix of us all :)

Chase and Paige & Dustin and Kassie
the whole group ... like how Tone is the only one not looking!

We had a little BBQ/movie night at Mom and Dad's tonight :) It was so fun! We had us, Jess, Hunter and Ty, Suzanne and Brian, Brandon and Brady come with their kids, Mom and Dad (of course) and Ryan and Brooke. We played a little croquet and after the BBQ roasted some marshmellows for S'mores. They have a huge outdoor screen and projector system and we watched 'The Private Eyes' ... it is the funniest show! Thanks again Mom and Dad for having us over!
