Dental check-up time!!! Comes in handy when your daddy is your dentist! Taylor was first and I already took her to Show Low Play Days and didn't get a picture! :( Paige thought the xray machine was pretty cool and that she could see her teeth on the computer screen.

Growing up too fast!!
OK when your son comes to the back door with fresh concrete all over his hands and you know that your neighbors just poured a brand new driveway one tends to freak out! Right? I ran next door and thank goodness Easton had the sense to just play in the left over concrete in the wheelbarrow. I about died! I tried so hard to keep my kids away and they listened really well so I was surprised when I saw Easton (well not really!)
Last week we had a BBQ at Grandma and Papa Hatch's new home in Pinetop. Yummy!

Her favorite sleeping position is cuddled up right next to me!
We were watching a movie together as a family and Easton had to go to the bathroom. He usually yells "Mom all done!" and when I didn't hear it for awhile I went to check on him and while he was washing his hands with soup he decided to do his hair and clean the mirror!! Oh man that kids makes a mess fast!
HAPPY 8th BIRTHDAY TAYLOR!!! We started the festivities off by eating at Red Robin. Taylor was so cute while they sang happy birthday to her. We were heading to Mukutos Island next and then the Diamondbacks game and were running short on time so after they got done singing everyone started to pack up and pay for their food. I looked over and poor Taylor is shoving icecream in her mouth as fast as she could go! Duh she had to eat her icecream so of course we all chilled out and waited-poor thing!

If you have never been to Mukutos Island then you are missing out! Its a huge indoor playground for kids and adults. Shaylar and I had as much fun as the kids! Yellow slide anyone?
Go Diamonbacks!!!! We had a lot of fun with Keith and Charayye. It was so good to see them. We only took Taylor to the game cause it was her birthday. I think that meant more to her than the actual game.

This was Charayye's nickname since she was little so of course we took a picture!!!

Taylor's ice cream cake

Somebody tasted some ice cream......

Taylor got her first pair of scriptures!!! She is getting so big too fast. I can't believe my baby is going to be baptised in two weeks. July 5th is the big day. Taylor has always been so independent and smart. She LOVES to create books and read. She is always leaving sweet notes around the house and is an amazing big sister. She is a good example to her three younger siblings and I'm so thankful she is the oldest because she is such a great help! I know Heavenly Father loves her very much and having her in our family is a blessing.
I just realized that I never got a picture of the fathers for Father's Day!! I'm so bummed. Happy Father's Day Shaylar, Daddy, and Barry!!!! These three men are each amazing in their own special ways. They are all so different and bring such fun and adventure to my life! Shaylar our kids LOVE you and always cry when you leave out of town. That says something! I love you too and I'm glad you are the father of my kids......aaaaaa who else would it be?! Barry-you work so hard! I love that you are so smart with finances and are willing to work with family. What would we do without you? No, seriously. Daddy-you are the most selfless person I know. It brings tears to my eyes to think of all the unknown and known things you have done for me. I know I can count on you for anything. All of you stay safe and healthy!!!
LOVE this picture! Truly and Mom check out the toes HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA!!!!

Last week for FHE (family hone ening) we did a forever family flower pot. I got the idea from my friend Melody-thanks Melody!! The lesson was on families can be together forever. We went to Walmart and we all chose a flower that we liked and then we came home and started planting. The flower pot represents the gospel that holds us all together. The soil is Heavenly Father's love for us that helps us grow, gives us nourishment and makes us bloom into someone better. The water represents Christ's love for us which we must have in order to grow and change.
This is it! All of us together forever! Shaylar and I picked the same orange flower (choices were limitied) Can you pick out all six flowers?

I love my family so much and am so thankful for my four wonderful children and my husband! I am so blessed!
Friday we went on a family walk around Show Low Lake. We didn't quite make it around the entire lake with the kids but it was fun. Shay and I are going to try it next date night with flashlights! (I just got done working out hence my groovy outfit I know you're jelous!

We bought an ice cream maker machine and Easton found a new hat! We made Homeade mint chocolate chip ice cream-yummy!
