Way Back in June

We blessed Kye way back on June 5. But, like the great parents we are, we didn't take a single photo. Luckily my dad did, and he just sent me the masterpieces today.

We had A LOT of support from family and friends. We made up at least half of the Sacrament Meeting that day. I even had an old lady chew me out because our family took their regular seats. ha.

We had so many people, in fact, that I totally underestimated the amount of treats we needed...and drinks (but they were technically not my responsibility); which was bad since it was late in the day on a Fast Sunday, and it was roasting hot outside.

Then, a bunch of old people took the tables at the park that we were going to use. Dumb old people. So, I sort of felt like it was a disaster.

Fortunately everyone there loved us so much that they stayed and showed their support anyway. And, most importantly, Kye received a very special little blessing that Cody performed. It made me tear up a bit; not like its that hard to do anymore.

Next go around I promise I will be better prepared.

And Kye, we love you. You are a special little boy. You have won my heart over, and over again. I will be forever grateful to have you in my life.

St. George

I better hurry and get these pictures posted while Camdon is still willing to play in his bed after waking up from his nap (20 minutes ago...)

We had a Hopkinson/Childers family vacation in St. George. Then, since I was in town, Camdon, Kyler, and I stayed and hung out with my mom for the week (along with my niece Kaitlin).

It was so much fun to have everyone together for the weekend (not to mention the fact that Cody and I had the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in...ever). And, it was pretty amazing to get to have my mom all to myself (sort of) for the week. There was a lot of swimming, eating, and awesomeness.

I even brought our camera. And, took 12 pictures of our time there. That might not sound like a lot, but for me it is an over achievement.

Here they are. Well, some of them...

4th of July

This year for the 4th we headed to Delta with Caleb and Hayley.

We started out the day with a parade. Camdon was a little timid when it came to chasing the candy. Probably because all the bigger kids kept running him down.
Then we headed to Hayley's grandma's for a nap...which was much needed since I was up by 4:30 (thanks for that one Kye).

After the nap there was some lunch, a little wiffle ball and crochet, then it was off to the demolition derby.
Camdon loved it, Kye didn't as much. Half way through I ended up in the car with a sleeping baby and a wound up two-year-old, but it was still very much worth it.
We ended the night with a spectacular fireworks display, then headed back home.
We all had a great time. A big thank you to Bubba and Hay for the invite. (Don't judge their shirts too harshly, they were homemade.)
