Pictures from the last few weeks

The last couple of weeks we have been trying to get the kids together for some "field trips". Here are a couple from the last couple of weeks.

Abby, Gabriel, and Addisen at the zoo

LOVE this picture. The baby orangutan was so stinking cute.

Kiera had so much fun. Love this picture!

This picture is for Laura! I think you should come with us when you come to visit, Laura! :)

Auntie came with us! Exhausting, right Leia?

Gabriel trying a bite of his chocolate pizza. It was the only bite he took. I guess the mixture wasn't that great. It was fun though!

The Start of 4 Amazing Years

Today is our 4th wedding anniversary! Our wedding was such an amazing day. We were so blessed to be surrounded by so many friends and family. Thank you everyone who was there and who have continued to be a part of our life together. We are truly thankful.

We were both very emotional throughout the ceremony.

Officially husband and wife!

A fun picture

My dress....I loved it!

One of those pictures the photographer loves, and made us laugh, too.
Daniel's toast. Not sure what Edward was embarrassed about, but I sure thought it was funny.

The end of an amazing party, but the beginning of the rest of our lives.

I stole this picture from Don and Jen's blog because this picture was just too cute. I know not everyone reads all the same blogs I do. There are a couple more on the Ash's. Thanks Don for posting these super cute pics!

Fun at the Children's Museum

A couple of weeks ago (yes, I am a bit behind) Edward was working and my friend Terri was also playing single mom because her hubby was out of town, so we took the kids to the Children's Museum of Phoenix. A bit on the expensive side, but tons of fun! I just love getting out of the house and doing new things with the kids.

Making a pizza together.

Gabriel got all the right equipment to make a stir fry. It was delicious.

We had such a great time, there was so much to do. These are just a few of the activities the kids enjoyed. Hopefully we will go back in a few months and take Daddy and Bill with us!

Hard Work

A couple of weekends ago Edward was working so the kids and I went over to Steve and Leia's for a swim and some lunch. Steve needed to mow the lawn so Gabriel insisted on helping. Kiera and Auntie did a great job overseeing the job.
Here the boys are getting things started up.

Mowing away!

Kiera and Leia did a great job of feeding us and making sure the lawn was looking good!

Kiera's First Haircut

Kiera was surpisingly good for her first haircut. She isn't all about sitting still for longer than about 2 seconds, so we were really happy with how good she was. When we were in CA we took her to just get a trim on the bangs with Auntie Linda. Auntie Linda gave Gabriel his first haircut, so it seemed that the tradition should continue.

What a princess!

Edward and I have been thinking about taking the kids to Disneyland for a couple of months, so when Gabriel heard us talk about it he started talking about it. Now that we have gone and come back, that is all he wants to do...go to Disneyland.

We had so much fun, so thank you to Edward's family for helpin gus enjoy the day. Edward and I were able to hit the water ride by oursleves and go on a couple of other rides together without the kids.

P.S. I'm working on uploading the video from the trip.
