Just some fun pictures from May.

Tyler and Kallie smelling each others breath after they rinsed with mouthwash. Ha ha ha. I love that they do this.

This girl has just been melting our hearts lately. She is so stinking cute.


Tyler and Kallie have become best friends and it is so fun to watch. They are so adorably cute with each other. I love when he helps her climb up the slides at the park.

This picture shows her personality perfectly!

Just having fun together.

Mckinley writes the sweetest notes. She is the best!

Mckinley with her Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Brown.

Graduating from Kindergarten! She was sick for a couple days and almost missed this.

We carpooled this year with one of her best friends, Savannah.

Mckinley and Carson. At the beginning of the school year she drew pictures of them getting married and she gets super embarrassed now if you show them to her. Ha ha! Cute friends!

Kinley dressed herself for Church on Sunday and Kallie wanted to wear a long black skirt like hers. Luckily we found one in her closet! (thanks to Aunt Kristen and all the clothes she sews for my girls!) Then we did their hair the same and found Kallie a cardigan to wear too. Cute cute kids! I just love them so much and am loving how old and independent and easy they are right now. Life is pretty darn good.

6 Years of Heaven on Earth

Mckinley was so excited for her birthday (of course) and all she wanted to do was go swimming. We were going to try to surprise the kids with a little family trip to Park City but then like 5 days before her birthday she broke her wrist on my parents' trampoline and the doctor told her she couldn't swim for three weeks. So the Park City trip didn't happen. So sad. When we were in the doctors office and she found out she couldn't swim she said "that's okay, there are lots of other fun things we can do for my birthday." Always so positive and sweet. I just love her.

Brandon made her breakfast in bed. This is 6 years of a Mickey Mouse pancake on her birthday. 

Opening presents from her siblings. So sweet.

She wanted a friend party and had been planning it and changing the theme ever since her last birthday, but in the end we told her we thought we should just do a family birthday this year. So we invited her cousins over to watch a movie and have cake and ice cream. She thought it was the best birthday ever!

We were going to take her to Pizza Factory that night (her request) but ended up having a family get together instead, so a week or so later we took her out for her birthday. This has been a tradition for the past three years. She loves getting her pizza in the shape of her age and getting her white smoothie. So yum!

She is 6 years old and more mature than me most of the time. Mckinley is just amazing. I love every single thing about her. She is one of a kind!!! We feel like the luckiest parents ever to have her in our family.
