Wedding- Part One

A month ago my little brother Spencer got married. The wedding was wonderful. I went with the kids a week earlier to hang out with family and not have to do so much driving in one weekend.  It was a good idea, but within ten minutes of being at my sister's house, Kale started getting sick. (Fever, runny nose, cranky). That night he didn't fall asleep until six in the morning. Then Mylin woke us up at 7:30. So that was a long day. The next night Kale was up like all night and then Mylin woke up for good at 4:50. Then the next night Mylin had night terrors all night (I finally woke my mom up at three to take her). So the first three nights I was at my sisters, I had maybe 5 hours of sleep. Kale still had a fever. Then Mylin got a fever. I was tired beyond belief. The day after the wedding, I lost my voice completely. So it was a rough trip, but we were still able to do some fun things. I was able to go through the Temple when Candice got her endowments. We went to her Bridal Shower. We went to the wedding and two receptions. So it was a fun time.

My aunt with Kale.  

The happy couple!

 My brother Nate. 

My whole family. 

In between the wedding and the reception, we went swimming at a hotel and I liked this picture of Kale with both of my grandmas.

This was at the reception in Mesa. It was held at the Wright House, which is so beautiful. 

This is my favorite picture of the whole trip, I think! I just wish Kale would have been in there, but they were just sitting like that and I knew if I ran to get Kale, the moment would be gone. 

The Bridesmaids.

The Groomsmen. Apparently Nate wanted to do his own pose! 

Mia had worn herself out dancing. 

I have pictures of the second reception that I'll post later.

Kale - 8 Months

Well, I'm finally getting around to doing Kale's 8-month update. These pics are from Tim's phone because my camera was still in AZ. (I have it back now! Yay!)

I get the weekly baby update emails that tell you what your kid should be doing that week. I laughed out loud when I read the 8 month one. 
It said, "As your baby's muscles are becoming stronger, he's apt to lunge forward onto all fours from a sitting position. He may go into a "pre crawl" exercise, rocking back and forth on hands and knees with his trunk parallel to the floor."
I know all kids develop at different times--Mylin is/was slow on talking, etc....but both she and Kale are pretty fast developers when it comes to physical things. The reason I laughed was because Kale had been all out crawling for like 3 months when I read that. 

Anyways...he's a great crawler. He's been walking along furniture for a while and I'm afraid he will be walking sooner rather than later. He still sleeps horribly. He's a pretty happy baby. People always think he's older than he really is.  

So here are a few pics of him.

I know this is blurry, but I think he looks so cute in his bow-tie. My friend Kari, who made him that cute hat, also made him these adorable bow-ties and I love them! We always get compliments every time he's wearing one of them!

Tim's Phone

Here are a few pictures from Tim's phone that we took awhile ago, but I forgot about them. 

I think this was at a ward BBQ.

I seriously love this face!

They love the swings. The nice thing about California is that we can go to the park pretty much every day.  

Here are a few pictures we took in line at Disneyland one day. 

One night we went to a movie in the park. We watched RIO and they passed out popcorn. 

This is how Mylin watched most of the movie!

Sorry this is so random. My brain isn't working this week. Potty training and no sleep and Tim working a million hours a week = my brain not working!

Missing My Camera

Almost two weeks ago, my little brother got married. It was beautiful and they looked so happy and I would love to post pictures about it. But I can't. Because I left my dang camera in Arizona. And I don't want to have it mailed, so I'm not sure when I'm getting it back. (So...if anyone in Arizona needs an excuse to take a vacation in California, you can bring me my camera!)
So here are a few picture I took a while back but never got around to posting. 

These are just a few I took of Mylin that I thought were pretty cute. 

My favorite:

We've gone to the Splash Pad a few times and Mylin loves it. 

Kale just hung out with me instead of getting in the water.

 I love this little face!

The other day Mylin's nose was running and she needed a "Banade" for it. 

So before I had kids, I swore that my kids would never, ever leave the house wearing mismatched clothes. Ha. Mylin's been picking out her clothes since she was like one! Most days she matches- (She will ONLY wear skirts or dresses, by the way. She has all these cute pants and shirts that she has never worn because even if I get them on her, she will take them right off.) Anyways, one day she came out wearing this. It's awful. You can't really tell, but the shirt has red polka dots and the tutu is 3-6 month size! But she loved it and I couldn't change her mind, so this is what she wore!
