after we got home from utah we spent most of our time at ZOOMBEZI BAY. for those of you not in columbus, it is a water park at our zoo.
there were a few of us who had passes, and i think we tried to go swimming at least twice a week. i think this is most of us. this is not the best picture but you get the idea.

tate got in a few rounds of golf with dallin. he just loves being able to go and play at the real course.

and i keep getting bigger and bigger!


I can't believe I have a kindergartner. I don't feel like it should be possible. I never really thought I would be one of those emotional moms when their kids go to school. Well I guess I was wrong. I completely balled the day he started. Must be the pregnancy! :)

The morning that he started he was getting dressed and getting ready and we had a conversation that went like this...

me: tate i don't think you should go to school today, why don't you stay home with me?
tate: MOM, i have to go to school
me: no you don't you can just stay home and play with me all day.
tate: mom... i have to go so i can learn stuff
me: why don't you stay home and i will teach you everything you need to know.
tate: but mom... you can't teach me how to be a dentist! i have to go to school so i can learn dental school stuff!
me: (holding back the laughter) oh, ok, i guess you can go then.
I hope he realizes soon that he's just going to be doing numbers and letters for a while.

Waiting to be picked up after school. He is lucky enough to be in the same class as his best buddy Isaac.

Tate's Birthday

Tate turned 5 during our trip home to Utah. He was so excited to have all of his cousins and grandparents at his party. He feels so old and so cool to be 5. I love it. He has turned into such a big boy. He is such a great big brother and good example for Boston.

On Tate's birthday he graduated from swimming lessons, and then chose to go to McDonald's for his birthday lunch.

After a busy morning and afternoon we headed to the park for his BATMAN BIRTHDAY PARTY! I can't tell you how excited he was for a real Batman party. I think he had been talking about it for 11 months.

He got lots of cool presents from everyone.

Boston thoroughly enjoyed the left over cake. I'm not sure how long his fingers stayed black.

Happy Birthday Tato Bug! We love you.


The boys and I took off for the month of June to Utah while Dallin was home taking finals, studding for and taking the boards.
While we were there we had a lot of...
rainy weather
fun with the cousins
activities w/GMA's and GPA's
birthday parties
swimming lessons
GNO's :) can't get enough of those!
memories made
band aids
late nights
in no particular order.

grandpa's annual fishing trip to the fish farm. boston was finally big enough to fish this year. but as soon as he caught his fish and pulled it out of the water he ran through jasons legs and hid from the fish. tate was able to do everything all by himself this year. he even tried getting the hook out.
