FHE at Rancho Joaquin a.k.a Layne's Place

On Monday we went to a really good friend of the family's little ranch. Both Christian and I have known the Layne's since we were really young and riding sheep at the Ward Rodeo! We have had some really good memories there.
For example, Christian took me there on our very first date to go horseback riding! Christian wasn't with us this time, but we plan to go back this weekend when he comes home.

Here are some really cute pictures of our visit to the Layne's Ranch. Their dog just had puppies and the both the kids and I were in heaven! They were the cutest things you have ever seen.

Even their horse had babies!!!

Utah Trip

(click to enlarge)

After getting somewhat settled in Modesto we flew with my family to Utah for my cousin's wedding! It was a great trip and we got to see a lot of family!

On Monday we headed to Lagoon and the kids had a blast! It was hilarious to watch Landon's face on the rides. It wasn't a scared face, or overly excited like Brooklyn's always was. It was just a "no expression" Landon face. He would smile and tell us all about the ride when he got off, saying "up, down, up, down," always wanting to go on more rides. He couldn't get enough. I think the only time we caught him smiling was when Uncle Sean and Ryan were watching. He absolutely adores his uncles.

The wedding was on Wednesday and it was a beautiful sealing. When you get married it is so hard to remember what the sealer says and so being able to attend other sealings gives you the opportunity to apply great words to your marriage. I sure did wish Christian was there with me!!!

Brooklyn and Landon's best friends on the trip were my cousin Bryce and his wife Mindy! Landon had the biggest crush on Mindy from the moment he saw her. He still talks about her every day.
Here is the little stud trying to get fresh with Mindy!

Bryce, Mindy and Bryce's sister Becca took Sara and Brooklyn frog hunting one night and came back with some cute stories!!! Thanks guys for always entertaining my kids! I know who to call when we need someone to watch the kids.

Saturday we headed to Provo to visit the Tolboe cousins. Ice cream and cousins always make a good combo. OH, and don't for get an awesome Aunt!

The Sunday before we left we went down to my Grandpa Fullmers house. It was so great to see everyone from that side of the family, especially Grandpa!

Watch out Shirley Temple!!!

On the Good Ship Lollipop, Brooklyn danced away!!!Brooklyn danced in her second dance recital on May 23 and did an awesome job. Despite the fact that we were crazily packing during the week of rehearsals and recital, everything was great!
Brooklyn and Hallie were the cutest ones up there (of course) and we were so glad they got to dance together one last time.

The classes that I had taught all did an amazing job and no one even skipped a beat. I was so proud of them. To MY amazement I even danced in the finally. I wasn't planning on it but thought "what the heck" and with a little costume alteration for my prego belly, I was up there shakin' it with the best of them! Like always it was great to be on stage and all in the mix of things.

(video of us girls coming soon)
