Busy Weekend

We had a very busy weekend, but it was fun filled!

Today we went and saw Dusty at work to wish him a happy Father's Day

Friday night we went on a date with our friends to the Strawberry Days Rodeo! Love me some rodeo and strawberries & cream. We had a lot of fun!

Saturday we had a Batty Family BBQ for Father's Day. It was so fun with all the cousins and all the kids.

Kinley's new friend Cort

Many of you have seen many pictures of our friends Jeff and Kitani, but what you haven't seen is there little boy. He was born in April and has become Kinley's favorite little baby. She is always interested in what he is doing and where he is at. We went and out with Kitani and Cort this weekend for some fun! We went to Farm Country at Thanksgiving Point. Kinley loves animals and was very interested in all of the kids.

Art City Days

This last weekend was Art City Days. This year was a little more fun because Dusty was involved as a firefighter/paremdic at the Fireman's Breakfast. Kinley and I are so proud of him! We went to the breakfast, parade, car show and carnival. We love living in a community that is so great!

Happy Family

Up to Idaho We Go

Last week Kinley and I spent the week up in Idaho at my sister's. It was a lot of fun to spend time with her family and I think Dusty enjoyed the break and was able to sleep very well.

We made silk flower bows - I will try to get a finished product picture up

All the Places to Eat

So many places to eat! Karly and Carlos knew all the good places and we tried to get to them all.

Grimaldi's - best pizza! It is over in Brooklyn and we had to wait about an hour and a half but I would for sure wait again! Kinley loved the crust

Carlos and Karly are focused on eating their pizza

Ferrerra's - in Little Italy

It has a lot of different Italian desserts. We tried almost 15 different ones

Crumbs Cupcakes - soooo delicious!

We got the Red Velvet, Cookie Dough, Peaunut Butter Cup and Carmel Apple Pie

A cute little place for brunch for Karly's

Cafe Lalo

I am VERY proud to say that I packed for a week trip in 2 carry on suitcases, 2 personal items, a diaper bag and a stroller. I am was pretty amazed with myself :)
