Pumpkin Patch and Dinosaur Museum

Today was a really fun day for Sadie and Zachary. We went to the dinosaur museum at BYU and then we went to the pumpkin patch to get some pumpkins. The pumpkin patch was a lot cooler than I thought it was going to be. I don't remember ever going to one before, so I was really impressed. There were animals for the kids to look at, there was a big pit of corn to play in and a little mini hay maze. I loved watching Sadie in the hay maze. She was just running all around trying to find the way out. Then she walked all through the pumpkin patch to find the perfect pumpkin. She looked at a ton of pumpkins, but she finally picked one for her and one for Zac. She was so sad when it was time to go home. We will probably go back to get another pumpkin just so Sadie can go play again! :)


Us sitting around the corn pit. Sadie LOVED this. It was really hard to get her to leave.


Digging in the corn...getting dirty.


My man carrying the pumpkins. Check out those guns!!


This was Zac's pumpkin that Sadie picked for him. When we rolled it over, there were 2 worms on it. It was pretty amusing.

This is the hay maze. Sadie figured it out pretty fast.


This is the llama. There were some goats and a sheep too. The goats kept trying to ram a little dog that was outside the fence. It was pretty funny.



In the morning, we went to the museum of paleontology at BYU. It was perfect for Sadie and her friend Jake. It is a pretty small museum, but lucky for us, the kids didn't realize that they looked at everything about 12 times. It was a really fun trip! Jake and Sadie had lots of fun.

Us next to some really sharp looking teeth.

Sadie wasn't scared at all of the dinosaur heads. Unless I told her they were going to eat her...


Jake and Sadie playing peek-a-boo in the dinosaur's mouth.

It was a fun and busy day. I'm just hoping that she will sleep really well tonight and maybe she will even sleep in tomorrow morning. Keep your fingers crossed!

We tried

If anyone is interested in the tutorial for the pants that I made...here is what I used. t-shirt-surgery


We tried really hard one morning this week to get some cute pictures of out kiddos together. Here are the best ones we got.


Sadie smiling at Zac.


This is one of my favorites. They aren't both looking at the camera, but they are both kinda smiling. So that is a success!


Giving kisses.


I especially love Zac's face in this one. So funny.


Zac looking at the camera...


Sadie looking at the camera. And it looks like Zac is about to sneeze or something.

So there you have it...our attempt at taking pictures of the kids. I guess that is why there are photographers. :)

And if anyone wants to see how many new skirts are in my and Sadie's wardrobe come over to my craft blog and look.

Just because I thought they were cute

Here are some pictures I found. I kinda forgot about them.




This is Sadie doing her breathing treatments when she was really sick. She actually did very well...I thought she wouldn't sit still. But she did great. And what was awesome was that I was able to buy the nebulizer machine for only TEN dollars!!! Usually they are 200. Yeah...I would say that is a great deal!


Big sister showing brother how to play the piano.


Sadie and her best friend Jake that lives across the street. These two crack me up!


Zac being cute with the goggles. Check out those chubby cheeks!


Ha! Funny. These goggles seriously keep him occupied for 30 minutes. He will chew and suck on them forever. It is awesome.

One t-shirt plus 30 minutes =

THESE PANTS! I needed some workout pants but I didn't want to buy any. Yes. I am cheap! But since I started my Zumba class, I didn't want to have to do the laundry every time I went because I only had one pair of pants to workout in. So I made these.




This used to be my brother's shirt when he was a manager at a city of Phoenix public pool. I love that the logo ended up right there and not somewhere silly like on my bum. Anyway, I think I will have to go to DI and get some more men's shirts so I can make me another pair!!! And the men's shirts at DI are only one dollar! I can afford that! ;)

Family Pictures

Just some cute pictures of our kids and out little family! Enjoy!

I love how Zac's face is like the same in every picture. Eyebrows up, and wide eyes. It's as if someone was trying to get him to look at the camera....

A very looooooooong swimming trip

On Friday around 4:30, we decided to take Sadie to the indoor pool in Springville. We hadn't been in a long time, and I finally got a new swim suit, so we all got ready and drove over to the pool. We got there around 4:40 and realized that it didn't open to the public until 6pm. Sheesh! So, to keep Sadie from having a complete meltdown about not being able to go swimming, we told her we would take her to the park to fly some kites. So we went home and got a kite and went to the park in our swim suits. There was no wind, but luckily I have a husband who can run really fast. :)

So after kite flying, we still had about 45 minutes to kill before the pool opened. So we drove over to Mcdonnald's and got a little something to eat from the dollar menu. The whole time Sadie was eating, we kept telling her that when she was all done with her food, she could go play on the big playground thing. So she ate really good and I started to take her into the play area and on the door it had a sign that said "WEAR SOCKS AT ALL TIMES!" This was a problem because when we got ready for the pool, of course she didn't put socks on! So I had to tell her we couldn't play on it because we didn't have any socks. I felt really bad about that but she took it pretty well. By that time we only had about 15 minutes until the pool opened so we piled back into the car and drove to the pool. It took us almost 15 minutes to get there because of all the construction around our house. Sheesh.

So we made it to the pool and we all went swimming. Zac even came in after he woke up. (he dozed off in the car on the way to the pool) At first he didn't like it, but after about 2 minutes he started smiling and splashing and stuff. It was a fun evening. But what started out as a quick trip to the pool ended up as an evening full of good times!

Video Overload

These are all the videos I have been meaning to put on here but have been to lazy to actually do it.


This first one actually just happened on Saturday night. Sadie was making Zac laugh with almost anything that she did. This is what I caught on video.

We started reading our scriptures before Sadie goes to bed. We never made her participate and in fact, most of the time she was watching a movie or something while we were reading out loud. Then one day she asked for her own scriptures and we gave her some and she started reading.

And here is a video of Zac's new trick. He's getting so big. I can't even believe he is already 5 months old. Where does the time go!??!

When Sadie is in the bathroom alone...

This is what happens!

I love that she calls my makeup "hiccup". Pretty cute! Oh and I didn't wipe it off her face until about an hour before bed time. So that is what she looked like most of the day today!
