Just some cute stuff...

"Helping" with the laundry.





Malia loves playing in her "baby bathtub." She entertains herself forever in that thing, this time Ethan decided to have some fun with her

Seriously cute face =)
Batting practice, not to brag or anything but he's actually pretty good. Check out the video.






The other day the two kiddos where playing together in the living room. I had just given Malia a bottle so I thought they should be fine for a few minutes. Then I heard them both laughing, not just giggles, but cracking up. I thought, oh no what did they do. So I peek around the corner and Ethan had Malia's bottle and was using it as a water gun. He stuck his hand in the bottom of the bottle and was squeezing the bag so it would squirt Malia. She had milk all over and she loved it. You can't really see it in the pics but she was COVERED in milk.


Then the next day they were outside for not even 5 minutes and I look around the corner and see this. Ethan had covered Malia in dirt, and of course she loved it. She had dirt in her diaper, in her mouth, in her hair, everywhere, can you say bath time!

And just the other day I went to the store, came back and went outside to find this. Adam had given Ethan the hose. Yep that's right, the hose. Check out what he was doing!

And of course she loved it! They both cried when we finally took the hose away. What are these two going to get into next??????

And last...Malia's starting to walk!!!!! Totally not ready for this. I thought we would have a while since it took her FOREVER to roll over or crawl, but no. As soon as she figured out how to crawl she was eagerly trying to new things. She still prefers to crawl but she is walking a lot more now. This video isn't very good, it's only like 1 step but it's all I could get. She never does anything when I have the camera!

The Beach & PA

Here are some pics from our trip back east to visit Adam's family. First we went to Lancaster, PA and stayed with Adam's grandparents, then we headed to the beach for a week. The kids were CRAZY, but it was so good to see everyone and hang out with the family!


We have TONS of pics so here are just a few and the rest are on the slide show if you want to check them out.



Adam's grandma never stops! She is one of the hardest working women I have ever seen! She was constantly making sure everyone was comfortable and well fed (she cooks amazing Sunday dinners!)


Ethan and his cute cousins Dallin and Cade
Four cousins in a tub, I'm sure they will just love this picture later! Miss Sassy
Look out Baywatch! Look at those rippling muscles!

Malia LOVED the sand. She literally ate handfuls of it, and even dipped her pacifier in it. I thought only little boys did gross things?


Every time a wave would come up he would run away as fast as possible so it wouldn't touch him. Every once in a while he got caught by the wave and would scare the you-know-what out of him.

Just hangin' out with dad, lovin' the sand and water........



Whoa, where the heck did that come from? Good thing dad was paying attention!

family pics
I love this picture. The look on Malia's face says it all!


Ethan running from the waves (turn the sound down cause it's really windy)

Little Samantha turning 30 soon

This is one of my favorits pictures of us...it was just outside the temple in Hawaii...little Samantha was 25 or 26 here...soon little Samantha will be 30...she just gets hotter with age...I just thought I would let everyone know that she is turning 30 soon...and I'm planning a big "surprise" party. If Samantha asks about it...don't tell her what is going on...it's a surprise...Her birthday is Sept 20th...but we will be having a party on the 19th in the evening...it's a Saturday...I am real poor at keeping secrets from little Samantha...she can read me like a book...however I will not spill the beans on this one...in fact if she asks me about this post I will deny that I even wrote it and and act like it doesn't even exist. Everyone else can do the same please. I'll keep you posted.
