Pretty Sure I'm Loved!

I know we are all loved by our Heavenly Father, but I'm pretty sure He loves me a lot. I feel like my children are the greatest blessing I have ever recieved. Kids can be hard, but totally worth the moments when they smile at you, hug you, tell you they love you, or snuggle with you. I truly feel like our kids are hand picked for us to raise on this earth and I am so lucky to have mine. For all you who know me personally, you know that I am not the most patient person and I have depression issues. I feel like Heavenly Father sent me nice kids because I could not handle hard kids. Lucy and Isabel are the sweetest kids. I can't get enough of Lucy, she lights up my darkest moments. She has so much personality and it's all good. Here are some of the highlights from the past few weeks.
This was funny. Ryan put Lucy in her seat and them started rocking it back and forth. She was laughing so hard, it was cute! Hold on for dear life Lucy! Aren't they cute? Isabel loves Lucy so much and vice versa. They are so cute together.

Lucy loves to clap. She was having so much fun playing. How can you resist a face like that? She is so endearing and lovable. Oh, I could just eat her up!

This was before the parade on the 3rd. We decided to have a glasses day. It was really funny and Lucy actually didn't mind them. I'm telling you, she is so sweet!

Trying out the glasses with a hat. The hat didn't last long, but it was cute while it lasted.
This was Lucy's Independence Day shirt. She is my Lil Miss Independent! I love her!!

I forgot to tell everyone how proud I am of Ryan. On Saturday Ryan took the GMAT. He needs it to get into the Master's program so he can get his CPA. He needed at least a 500 (out of 800) to get accepted. Well, he did so awesome. He got a 650! I am so proud of him!!

Happy 4th

We have not been up to much. Lucy loves her patriotic jammies.
For the 4th we went to the Kaysville festivities, fireworks at Sam's, and the Layton parade. Over-all it was a lot of fun! Actually Lucy hated the parade and the fire trucks, but Isabel had a good time and loved the candy.

About 2 weeks ago we went to Lagoon. It was so much fun. This is the first time we have paid for Isabel to go on rides, normally we just take her on the free stuff on stake Lagoon day. She had so much fun. I don't think she wanted the day to ever end. Here are some of the highlights.
This is Isabel on the bumper cars. It was funny, she couldn't figure it out and so spent the entire time by herself in the corner. The log ride. In order in the boat is Michelle (Ryan's sister), her husband Kade, Liz (Ryan's mom), Isabel, and Ryan. I love this ride, but someone had to stay with Lucy.
This is what Lucy and I were doing while everyone was on the log ride. Actually this is what she did most of the day. She was so good hanging out in the stroller. She's a good baby!

When I was a kid, this one of my favorite rides. I love these cars and so did Isabel!
Bulgy The Whale. This was Ryan's favorite ride as a kid. Isabel loved this ride and even put her arms in the air at one point.

I love Lagoon. I know some people don't like amusement parks and think Lagoon is lame, but I love it! I have great memories as a kid there and I want my kids to have the smae memories.
