1st grade!! Ahh Where does time go? Macee is in first grade and she couldn't be more excited. That girl loves school so much, we just hope it stays like that. Her teacher is Mrs. Payne. Mrs. Payne is actually a friend of my mother in laws. She usually teaches 2nd grade, but because of the increase of kids she moved down to help 1st grade this year. Hopefully next year she will move back to 2nd grade. We LOVE her!! Macee actually went to the first day and was supposed to have a different teacher and Mrs. Payne stopped her and told her she was in her class. In her class they do a system that when you are on good behavior or help with something you get a coin. Well Macee had done really well and told me that she really wanted a Barbie that was in the "store". I told Mace to save until she had enough coins and to not spend her coins on silly things. Well 3 weeks into school she had enough to by the Barbie. The other kids in her class were dying that she got the Barbie, they had been buying little things every week and not saving. Macee was super proud of her accomplishment. We are proud too Mace!! Keep up the good work!!
I told Macee that on her actual birthday she could go to Outer Limits and take 1 friend. So she chose her BFF Odessa. Seriously I don't think they slowed down for 2 seconds!!
Race showing off his arm with NO CAST!! YAY!! He got lucky and got it off just in time for Outer Limits!! He was so happy that he got to play on all the swings and slides!!
The "pull string" pinata. It wasn't that great. I knew there would be lots of boys so I was scared to do a regular pinata in case the boys got crazy with the bat!! lol
This keyboard was pretty cool for Macee to get it because it was Grandma Janna's. It was in new condition still and she also got lots of books that were Janna's.
Some of the Hello Kitty loot!So I know it sounds crazy, but I'm not old enough to have a 7 year old. Most days I feel like I'm still a teenager not almost 30!! ugh!! So depressing to think about!! lol Well my sweet little girl decided that she wanted a party at our house this year which was a great idea other than our house isn't very big!! Luckily the weather was pretty decent so we could be both in and out and we weren't all squished inside. She got so much fun stuff from her friends and family. Most of her stuff was Hello Kitty and she got lots of books. She is quite the little reader these days so it is always nice to have a few new books!! Thanks to everyone that made her feel so special with all the "Happy Birthdays" between Facebook and phone calls she felt loved to say the least!! Happy Birthday Moo Moo we couldn't be more proud of the little woman you are becoming!! Love you!!

We had a great Fourth of July. We were so busy I'm not even sure if we had a chance to sleep. We startd out by going to the farmers market in Idaho falls where Quentins dad has a business that does produce and we went and suprised him. After we walked around with our friends Amber and George and their 2 kiddos we went to lunch and then did some shopping. Later that evening we went to Amber's parents house kind of on a whim and the kids played in the water. Saturday night we watched the MMA fights at my parents house and then went home to rest for a few hours. Sunday we went swimming with our friends Cliff and Trudi and Trudi's boys Kai and Kaleo. We all got some color but not too bad! We woke up early on Monday to go fishing with Cliff and Trudi and the kids. We spent lots of time out in the sun and decided to go home after the guys caught 7 fish. We went back to our house and got things ready for a big BBQ and fireworks that night. We had such a great time and enjoy spending quality time with all of our friends! I hope we get to do some more fun stuff outside this summer.
