Hayley: 2 years old

Our baby is 2! 
How did that even happen!
She's so fun and full of personality!




She loves dogs and birds so much. 
She is super into cars too!
She knows her colors pretty well, 
and is learning so much every day. 
She says lots of words and I love listening to her cute little voice. 
It really feels like she loves everyone and everything. 
She is so full of joy and love! 

Here's a little interview for her second birthday! 
I am sure I'm going to love watching this for many years!
I love her little voice and face covered in peanut butter.


I really do wish everyone could get to know her. 
She is so enthusiastic and full of joy. 

Happy Birthday baby girl!
I love you SO much! 
Its happened too fast, but I can't wait to keep 
watching you learn and grow. 
Keep loving everything!

Summer Baby!


Hayley is LOVING summer! 
Piper isn't a fan of the heat, but nothing seems to phase this girl.
Except for when I can't seem to understand what she's asking for. haha




I got a sitter to help me out during violin lessons finally!
It has been so much easier and the girls adore her! 
And then I'm not super frustrated after I'm finished teaching and
am usually still up for an adventure or little outing. 
Hooray!


And these gorgeous flowers sure brightened up my day! 
Piper said, "Mom, those flowers are simply divine!" 
and I couldn't agree more.

Friday Hike: Rock Canyon


This week we headed up Rock Canyon on our Friday hike. 
I think a Friday hike is going to be our new summer tradition.
Its perfect! 
Its the only morning I'm not teaching, 
so it really works out!




We borrowed this baby hiking pack from our buddies.
I wanted to see if Hayley enjoyed it or not.
She was a fan, but she also walked a bunch too!


They are such cuties!
And this was so fun!



So we are looking for some fun kid-friendly hikes. 
We will probably do Stewart Falls and the other popular ones, 
but I still don't know of a lot of good hikes, 
so let me know what are your favorites! 

And if you ever want to join, 
we would LOVE it! 
Just shoot me a text and we will get it all set up!
We are interested in going to SLC too.

4th of July - and more!


We had a fun 4th of July! 
Nothing really exciting, but we enjoyed being together as a family. 

I took the week off of teaching, and the girls and I really enjoyed 
the relaxing time and some extra play time. 
And I found a sitter to help during my lessons, so I'm 
really looking forward to that. 

This weekend, we ran up to the canyon in Pleasant Grove 
to see the giant flag. 
And it really is GIANT! 
It weighs almost 400 lbs and the stars are 5 feet tall. 
It is beautiful and amazing! 
I think they are taking it down sometime soon, so 
run and go see it if you can. 


It looks like its floating!!



We hope everyone enjoyed their holiday!!

Mommy and Piper time

Mommy and Piper time is some of my favorite time!
I love my little Hayley! She is a handful, and I have 
had lots of one-on-one time with her while Piper has been 
at preschool and other activities. 
So I really love my extra special Piper time. 

My mom took Hayley for a few days this week. 
Piper and I made the most of it and had a blast
hanging out together. 








I love all this special time!
And, let's be real, 1 kid is WAY easier than 2. 
Ha ha ha!
