The rest of the summer

I have not updated this since Beck's birthday, because we have had a super busy summer and our computer broke. This post is so long because it has the rest of the summer on it.

Here are the kids on the 4th of July.

My family came over to do fireworks in the backyard.
Mason, Kelsey, and Henley
Mason and Mom.
We tried putting Beck to bed and it didn't work. So he got to watch the fireworks from his window.
The 24th of July. We usually go to Lyman for the 24th of July weekend.
Me and Mark did the triathlon (He swam and biked, I ran)
The kids at the parade.
Henley and her friend Baylee.

Getting muddy in Grandma's backyard.

That night we watched to fireworks at my mom's house.
Beck checking out grandma's new pet.

One of the weekends this summer we went up the canyon for dinner. It ended up raining so we didn't stay too long,but we still had fun.

The kids didn't mind the rain at all.

Las Vegas Trip
Mark's family planned a Las Vegas trip the end of July. Because of swim lessons we were only able to go for about 2 1/2 days. We left after work Thursday and drove staight there and then we had to leave Sunday evening to be back to work on Monday. But I am glad we went, because it ended up being a lot of fun. My dad had to go down for work, so my whole family ended up going too. We spent part of the time with them until Mark's family got there.
Henley at MGM watching the lions.
Playing with the toys in the gift shop.
Watching the acts at Circus Circus with Grandma Huntsman. We went to watch to acts and go to the arcade, Henley loved the 3D Dora ride.
Beck and Uncle Richie.
The kids eating candy from Grandma Ruth.
The next day was very busy. We started out swimming in the pool. It was about 115 degrees while we were there. It got hot early in the morning, so swimming was great.

Then we went to the Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay. This was a bit of a disapointment since we had just gone to a great aquarium in California when we were there in April. But the kids still had fun.

Touching the sting rays. Henley was too scared to do this in California, but did touch one here.

Then that night, we went to the dinner show at Excalibur. It was so much fun. You watch the knights fight and get a good meal that you have to eat with your hands.

Mark had to buy Henley a princess hat.

And then even later that night. Me and Mark went to see the Cirque de Soleil Mystere show. It was AMAZING. I highly recommend it to anyone. After the show we walked the strip and then stopped to eat a super cheap breakfast at 2:00am. We were a little bit tired.
We headed home the next day. But we had a great time. Thanks Grandma Huntsman!
The fair
The fair is one of my favorite things of the whole summer. We only took a couple of pictures. We rode some rides and had some good food.
Beck was terrified when this started going.

Uncle Kyle.
My brother Kyle, came home from his mission in Omaha Nebraska in August. My parents went out to pick him up and we met them all at the airport. It is good to have him home.

Believe it or not I still have more pictures that I will post later.
We are also busy, trying to sell our house to we can build a new one on a little bit more land. So if you know anyone that wants a house, let me know I will post pictures of it later.

Beck's First Birthday!

June 23rd was Beck's first Birthday! Seriously, I can't believe it has been a year, with each kid the times goes faster and faster. He opened presents from us that morning but his party wasn't for a couple more days. He loves this wagon filled with blocks, he also got an outfit, and some Disney toys. At his one year check up he weighed 20.13 lbs and was 30.25 inches. He is happy unless he is hungry or tired but, he has started throwing little fits lately. He knows about 10 word. He is now into climbing (Henley never climbed on anything) and he is a little wild boy. He loves Henley so much and he really likes the dogs.

Opening presents with Henley.

The day of his party the kids played in the pool all morning.

I could not decide what kind of party to have for him. I was going to just do animals but then I remembered that Beck has this stuffed Mickey Mouse that he always gets out of his toy box and loves to give it hugs and carry it around. Then I turned on Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and he freaked out and got so excited. Let me also say that Me and Henley love Disney stuff and I single handedly support the Disney Movie Club, so I am glad Beck enjoys Mickey Mouse too.
Mark usually makes the cakes but he didn't care if I gave it a try this time and I think it turned out just fine.

I probably could have just got Beck balloons and not presents and he would have been so happy. He LOVED these balloons and who can blame him they're awesome.
Unfortunately, Mark's family couldn't make it.
Here is my mom, sister Kelsey, brother Jake, and Henley
My sister again and my dad.
Our good friends Phil and Maureen.
Henley helping to unwrap presents again.

Time for cake. I was planning on givin him one cupcake but after we sang "Happy Birthday" Mark just let him go at the whole Mickey cake and he loved it.

Of course Henley enjoyed it also.

Getting hosed off.

One last random picture of our sweet little boy trying to take a picture of himself. We love you Beck.
