We love our Dads!



Happy fathers Day! We love you guys so much! We hope you know how much we love and appreciate all you do for us! Wish we could give you big hugs! You are special Dads! XOXO

Happy Fathers Day!



video
This video is pretty cute...Jono taught Carter where all the different car parts were on his truck. Carter new where everything was after a quick mechanics 101 class with his Daddy.

Happy Fathers Day Jono! You are such a sweet, loving, fun Daddy. Your 2 little boys love you so much!! They are so lucky to have you as their Daddy. It is the cutest thing ever to watch you and Carter hang out together. He wants to do everything the same as his Daddy. He even has to dress the same as you. Even if you are standing with your hands in your pocket, he will stick his hands in his pocket and stand there, and the list goes on. You are so good to let Carter tag along and work on all of your different house projects, mow the lawn, fix the car, wash the car, etc. He eats it all up and loves every second with you. YOu are so sweet with Sawyer, it will just be that much more fun when Sawyer is older and you can do all of those fun boy things with the 2 of your boys. You do so much for our family, and make us so happy. From working hard at work, to working on endless "house projects", to do fun activites with us. You are so good to help out with diaper changes, feedings, bedtime rituals, etc. You are right there involved in it all. We couldn't have asked for a better Daddy/husband than you. I hope you felt special today and know that we love you so much and think "YOU ROCK"!

Our Last Day in NYC


In front of New York Temple


video
I dont know what happened but the pictures got out of order. Well Tuesday was our last day in NYC, but we definitely made it a fun one. Ashly and I started out the day going to Regis and Kelly! Kim Cattrall was on, and we also got to see David Cook, the American Idol. It was pretty fun to see him sing especially after watching the whole season of American Idol. He seemed really nice and sounded good while singing. Thanks to my Dad who was so nice to get the Regis & Kelly tickets and Good Morning America tickets. He is so good about getting me tickets to fun events. Thanks again Dad! We had a tons of fun! After the show Ashly and I walked by the Temple which was right next door. It looked a lot like the surrounding buildings except that it had the special Angel Moroni on top. I love seeing the NYC Temple. Such a special place. We then met up with Jono and Andrew for breakfast! It was pretty cute to see the guys walk in to the restraunt with all the kids in strollers and baby pacs in all. Such a great sight. (: We had such a yummy breakfast!! We walked around to a few shops and then had to head back to get packed up to make our journey back home to Cali. We had such a fun filled time with the Lark family in NYC. They were so good to take us all around the city all day every day. Thanks for putting up with us and being great hosts in your adorable home.We miss you and Love you guys, we will see you in a few weeks at the Beach!

Celebrating Andrew's B-day




While we were in NY it was Andrew's B-day. We went out for a yummy italian dinner which we scarfed down, and then Andrew and Ashly went to a Movie. P.S. carter loved the balsamic vinegar so much he started drinking it with his straw.(: Andrew is a such great Brother-in-law, we had lots of fun hanging out with him and glad we could be there to celebrate his big 26.

A Sunday at Central Park






video

Today was such a pretty day! Such nice weather in NY. We started out the day going to Ashly and Andrew's ward. It was fun seeing where they go to church every sunday. After church we relaxed, and took Ruby on a little walk around the block. Carter loved walking Ruby and being in charge of the leash. He was very good and cautious at walking Ruby. Later on in the day we went to Central park and let the boys play in the grass. Little Carter missed out and slept the whole way to Central Park, and the whole time we were there. Sawyer and Bennett had fun though playing and enjoying being outside.

Soho. Bathtime. Broadway show 5.24.08

Today we went to Soho. We had fun walking around and looking at all the many, fun stores and eating yummy food. All 3 little boys were so good and patient while we shopped, etc. Little Sawyer didn't even make a peep that day. He was either sleeping or when he was awake he was happy. So great! After a long day of walking around when we got home we gave the kids baths and all ready for bed. Ash and Andrew were so nice to watch Carter and Sawyer while Jono and I went to see Legally Blonde on Broadway. It was actually really good! Very entertaining and funny. We loved it. It was fun to have a fun date night with my love. Thanks Ash and Andrew for watching the boys. All in all it was another fun adventurous day in New York.
