Happy Birthday!

I can't believe Isaac is now 3!  We celebrated his birthday with Aaron this year.  There birthday's are two days apart.  We had fun and had a few friends/family over.  Isaac was really excited for his birthday!  Any time we would ask him about his birthday his first response was, "presents!"  He got some fun new toys.  His favorite is a new Tricycle from Grandma and Grandpa Nixon.  He also got some toy dinosaurs, doctor medical kit, trains (James and Percy), some cool "Cars" items (a new Lightning McQueen, The Sheriff a puzzle book,& coloring book), Aaron found him his own tackle box (he loves to go fishing with Daddy) and the game memory.  I had fun making his birthday cake.  He love trains so I tried to make a train cake.  It was fun and he loved it!  I also make Aaron a homemade German Sweet Chocolate Cake.  We had fun celebrating together! The day of Isaac's birthday he kept saying,"It's my Happy Birthday!"

Birthday Boys!

Isaac's Cake

He was proud of his Cake

Isaac's new bike.  He got to stay up late to help Dad put it together.  He rode around the house then we told him he could ride it the next day when the sun came up.  He was in our room super early the next morning and said, "Mommy the sun is up."  The only problem was that it was pouring rain.  The poor kid had to wait forever to take his bike out.  He loves it and wants to ride it all the time.

Nixon Ranch

All of my family met at the Ranch last week! We had a great time. Everyone was there! My parents had lots of fun activities for the kids including a scavenger hunt, puppet show, finger paints, many trips to the hot springs, boat rides, smores... My parents love being grandparents...

\Aaron caught this crawdad

Isaac loves helping Aaron catch fish.  He helps Aaron reel them in then talks to them, then throws them back in the water.

One of my many fish.  Aaron caught like a million fish out of the pond. 

Our cute cowboys!

5 Years!

Aaron and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary May 14!  I am so grateful for him and the temple marriage that we have!  I love him more everyday. He is such a good husband and father.  He really takes good care of us!  We have had an exciting 5 years!  I love our little family.  Our boys bring us so much happiness.  I am so grateful that we all can be together forever.  I will never forget the day we were sealed and the feelings I had.  I have never felt so right and so happy about anything!  I love you babe! 

My wonderful parents came up to watch the boys so Aaron and I could get away for a night!  It was only one night but we enjoyed every second.  Don't get me wrong we love our boys but it was the first time we had been away together since our boys came along!  We went up to Island Park and stayed in a lodge!  It was very nice and relaxing! 

Box Canyon.  I love this spot. It's so peaceful.

View from our room!  We were lucky and had perfect weather.  Just a few days later it snowed!

Aaron took me on an awesome hike down a super steep canyon. The scenery was amazing but getting up out of the canyon was a work out.

Yeah for Uncle Dan!

Last week we were down in Utah again.  We went this time for my brother Dan.  Not only did he graduate with his MBA but he also commissioned in the Army.  He is now a second Lieutenant in the US Army.  Aaron and I were glad we could be there with him for that.  It was neat because my dad did the swearing in part and my mom and I pinned on his rank.  Isaac and Sam had fun with Grandma, Grandpa, and Jack and Chase!  So glad we could go down. We also took the boys to the dinosaur musuem at the Point of the Mountain. Isaac loved it. (he is really into dinosaurs right now)

At the dino muesum. (Makes me think of Night at the Muesum 2)

I don't know if they are supposed to be on that but it was a cute picture.  Glad I had my camera in my hand.

Fun with our cousins
