Preschool Graduation

Well before summer officially started Brooklyn had preschool graduation. It has been a fun year for her. She absolutely loved it and made some good friends who she told me she misses. She learned so much. She has another year of preschool to go since her birthday is September 2nd but she will be super smart for kindergarten.

She was such a stinker and was the only one who wouldn't wear her cap and gown. She had a little solo part but didn't say it, she got really shy all of a sudden. She did sing the songs though and it was so cute!

The sun was really bright and in their eyes

She was most definitely not in a picture taking mood!!

Giving Miss Misti her thank you present!

Summer has officially started!!!

To kick off summer we headed up to the zoo with the Arias family! We went at the perfect time, not too hot and not too crowded. By the time we left it was starting to heat up and there were a ton of people!!
Hillbilly Brook (that's what my Dad calls her with her missing tooth) and Eva

First up was the train ride! Aren't those 3 girls the cutest!!!
Hudson loved it!

The had a Zoorassic event going on. So they had all these big dinosaurs that moved and some sprayed water. It was pretty cool.
All the kidlets!

They all loved that the gorilla was right next to the window!
The peacock was so cool! Both the kids and adults liked it. I've never seen one with it's feathers all spread out.

The carousel is always a hit!

After the zoo we headed up to Snowbird where Lane's grandparents have a room. We had dinner and took the kids swimming which was a lot of fun.

Hudson has some fettish with dishwashers. He loves to get up in there and take everything out, I get very frustrated with it but Grandma Pont has a lot more patience than I do!

It made for a very fun day, a long day with maybe a 45 minute nap for little man, but still we had fun and look forward to summer!

15 Months

Weight: 23 lbs (29 %)
Height: 30.5 in. (30 %)
Head: 18.5 in (45 %)

At 15 months, this little monster is. . .well just that, a MONSTER!! He keeps me on my toes. He is so much fun. I love seeing his personality come out. He is very hard to keep entertained, he is a wanderer. Loves to be exploring! He is a total boy and loves the dirt and getting dirty. He LOVES to be outside!

He is completely mesmerized with lawn mowers, weed wackers, blowers, whatever it is, he will watch you the whole time. It looks like his head is stuck in the fence but our neighbor was mowing the lawn and this is how he watched him!

At 15 months, Hudson isn't talking a whole lot. The only thing he consistently says is, "Mama." Which I'm totally fine with :)
He does know how to say:
Pa Pa (Grandpa)
Num Num (Yum, Yum)
OOHH (When he gets really excited about something)

In sign language he says:

He shakes his head and yes and no but won't say it.

15 months is a fun age but I feel like its also a hard age. He has learned to throw pretty good tantrums from his big sister which I don't like one bit. But he is happy majority of the time and we love him to pieces!

Dance Momma Dance

I started taking a dance class this year and have absolutely loved it. At the end of the year we had a little recital. We did 3 across the floors and 2 dances, a lyrical and a jazz. I was very VERY nervous the day of the recital. I have not danced for 8 years. So to get in front of people was a little intimitading. I couldn't sleep the night before and didn't eat at all that whole day. Once we started dancing though it was so fun! Brookie was my best cheerer!!! She'd yell, "Go Momma, go Momma!!!" I even had a solo, which was probably why I was so nervous but it turned out great and I'm excited for next year!
I'll spare you the videos so here are the pictures!!
