Wacky Day and Frogger

Alexia had wacky day at her summer program this week and here is what she looked like:

She also rescued a frog from our widow seal on Saturday and named him Frogger. He now lives under the deck in the back yard.

Happy Fathers Day A Few Days Late

Alexia and I wanted to wish all of the fathers in our life a Happy Father's Day!. We hope you did something you enjoy.

Alexia decided that the best fathers day she could give Brian was to leave him alone and let hm watch golf all day long, so that is what she did. Well, until the Tornado sirens- then she decided to stay right by daddy so that she would be safe. We were off the hook for dinner too, since Brian wanted pizza for his Father's day dinner. I can handle that prep and clean up!

Alexia called her grandpas for Fathers day too (even though she argued that its not called Grandpas Day, they should pick their own day). I tried to explain why grandpas are included in father's day, but she was not buying it!

I do want to say how grateful for all of the fathers in my life. I have a great dad who is such a wonderful example of faith in the lord and love for his family. He had 9 kids and managed not to kill anyone or go clinically insane! I also have a wonderful father-in-law. Anthony is always supportive and understanding. He can also beat Alexia at checkers and she does not get too mad because she loves her grandpa!

I have wonderful grandfathers. both grandpa Joe and Heber are such wonderful men. They are both strong, faithful, good-hearted men and I love them very so much. I wish that I could spend more time with all of these great men.

I also want to say what a great father Brian is. You can see how much he loves Alexia and how much fun they have playing ball together. He is a daddy that she can be proud to have!

Fun Days and Pioneers

Last Saturday we went to the North liberty Fun Days and Alexia got to ride some "super fun rides".

She also won a Dolphin that she made talk for the next 3 hours. I will let you all enjoy what I had to listen to for hours and hours and hours:

We also went to our State Pioneer Day and Alexia had so much fun learning about the Mormon pioneers. Mostly she liked the crafts. And yes we know that pioneers did not eat Cotton candy, but Alexia thinks it would have been better for them if they had!
