It's a girl!

So if you haven't heard already.... i am 19 weeks pregnant... What! That is exactly what I keep on saying. Yesterday we found out it is a GIRL!. As you can imagine... i just started crying. I am so excited this is 4th and final so having a girl just makes our family story have a "perfect ending" as my friend Taylor said.

Our story...
1999 Married..
2002 Decided to start a family
2002-2006 Tons of prayers, tons of tears, and no kids.
2007 Saxon born
2008 Micah born
2009 Dane born
2010 Kylee or Kylie (spelling not sure yet) is going to be born
2011- Eternity Just trying to endure to the end!
When it rains it pours.. and in our case it then floods!

p.s. Thanks for all your prayers for the girl... He listened!

Happy Mothers Day

Happy Mothers Day. For Mothers Day, I thought it would be a great idea to give my Mom and Mom in Law pictures of my boys. I saw this mustard field near my house, so I decided to go for it. I took them there and went crazy with the camera. I think they turned out awesome.... it ended up to be the best Mothers Day gift to me!

Saxon..


Micah...

Dane...
Sometimes it is not the perfect picture but the journey getting there that is most precious.
Here is our Journey....
Hiking to the perfect spot

Up hills

Getting stuck in ditches.. luckily there are brothers to pull you out
Going down hills.. that is actually super fun!

Fighting off the Monsters

Micah felt the need to practice baptizing Dane

Saxon trying to get Dane to smile


My attempt to get all the boys to be together look at me and smile... it never happened.

Thanks! For the best mothers day gift ever... I love these boys.

ALOHA!

Aloha! So if you know me, you know that I am always on a search for a great deal to Hawaii. So after a year of searching we found it 120 each way! we of course had to get them. And then it was official we were taking our crazy family to Hawaii. I know it is crazy, 3 little boys, 3 and under on a plan for 5 1/2 hours and not to mention 2 are lap children. But if you know us, we are crazy so we did it! Luckily there were some empty seats so we got to bring some car seats on and it ended up to be not as hard as i thought. But after hours and hours of traveling we were worked. We finally got our rental car and those boys faces says it all...


After the great travel we decided to have some more fun and do all our shopping on the way to our condo. Once everything was done it was time for fun and games!!!

1. Always check the surf upon the arrival of Hawaii!


2. When the surf looks junk.. go find something else to do... we found the honolulu zoo. So much fun!

 4. Never go a day in Hawaii without playing at the beach... (unless it is sunday, of course)

After the zoo we went straight to waikiki and loved playing in the water.

The rest of the trip was such a blur.. surfing and playing at all the different beaches pretty much occupied the whole 10 days of ours. It has to be one of my favorite vacations ever! Here are some more highlights.

Turtle Bay beach! Perfect for kids and even better because then Tad and I can switch of surfing.
