When your first best friend moves away

Friday, July 31, 2015

Jack's first little bestie, Emma and her family moved to Utah for her Daddy to go to the BYU-MBA program. We were SO sad to see one of our favorite little families go since Jack & Emma are the cutest little BFF's and Emma's mom is one of my sweetest BFF's! We spent so much time together and we don't know what we're going to do without them! We couldn't let them leave without stopping by for a few pictures of these two besties and a few more extra big hugs! 

Time for a check-up!

From my insta:

18 months || 3 years
Jack: 31lb (44%), 37.5" (53%) Goal: Potty train
Phillip: 21lb 3oz (5%), 31.5" (25%) Goal: Gain weight 🙈

I made Aunt Kelli hold Phillip down for shots while I held Zoe haha! Good practice for when she is a mama one day!

Jack's 3rd birthday!

Sunday, July 26, 2015


We were super lucky this year to have so much family in town for Jack's 3rd birthday! We partied hard all day and our sweet little boy had a blast!

We started the day with birthday donuts (a tradition!)

Then we headed to the movies to see Inside Out. I actually fell asleep (still in that newborn zombie stage haha!) but I think Jack liked it!

It was the first time I've braved the theaters with a newborn (this was actually Jack's first real theater experience & Phillip has never been - we left him with Grandma to nap for this one ha!) and it actually went surprisingly really well! She nursed a couple times throughout but she barely made a peep!

We headed to lunch with my family before going back to our house to play awhile. Anytime we drove in the car I sat in the back with Jack which he thought was pretty special! So easy to please a 3 year old :)

We went to Godfather's Pizza for dinner and then had a little family party for Jack back at the house! 

^ So Tom & I got Jack a Leapster for his birthday but after we had him play with it for about ten minutes we realized it was super lame and we would rather spend a little extra money for an iPad where we just load only educational games! It made way more sense since the Leapster was around $80 and each game is $15-20! Apps are free or WAY cheaper than that plus we can share them among all our devices! It ended up working out even better than we thought because after returning the Leapster we realized we could just give Jack my old iPhone that I had just replaced with a newer version. We bought a new kid-friendly case, changed the background picture and replaced all my apps with Jack-friendly apps and he never even knew it was my old iPhone haha! He LOVES it and it is way, way better than the Leapster which was SO slow and pretty boring!

And how can you have a 3rd birthday without being gifted a tricycle!? Thanks Grandma, Grandpa & Great-Grandmas!

We finished the night off with Jack's special requested basketball cake (which we bought at Sam's Club and cost way too much for how lame it was, honestly haha!) It's basically a normal cake with basketball rings stuck into it and it didn't even taste very good! Jack loved it but still...never again.

We sure love this sweet little boy and he is so lucky to have so many aunts/uncles/cousins/grandparents who love him and spoil him!

Happy 3rd birthday, our sweet Jack Jack! We love watching you grow!


Mr. Bunny & the Case of the Missing Ear

Monday, July 20, 2015

We had a real-life Doc McStuffins situation on our hands this week when Mr. Bunny's left ear fell off! Jack requested that we take him to the ultra-qualified Doc McStuffins but in the end Doc Grandma Wallace is the one who saved the day (and Mr. Bunny's ear!). Poor Mr. Bunny has been through so much in his short life. I guess it just shows how much he is loved/snuggled/dragged everywhere haha!

Summer Swim Party

Saturday, July 18, 2015

Two of our best friend families moved to Utah this summer so we wanted to have one last hurrah before they left. We actually had to reschedule it because Zoe ended up arriving the week we originally had it planned haha! Seriously such a fun BBQ/swim party with family/friends and the best part was that my brother/sister and their spouses were in town the weekend we ended up doing it! So thanks, Zo, for coming early and making us reschedule!


Splash Pad Summer Fun

Wednesday, July 15, 2015

Cutest little friends at the splash pad. One of our very last play dates with little Miss Emma before they moved to Utah!

I have to say that one of our very favorite things about our city is how many splash pads there are! They're the best!

A little black & white for your Sunday night

Monday, July 13, 2015

No rhyme, no reason. Just a handful (or five) of black & white photos.

A little intro to what the next few weeks of this blog is going to look like...a lot of photo dumps with no rhyme or reason (and a whole lot of Zoe overload!).
