May was an exciting month nana and papa returned from their mission to the ukraine. we were all so excited to meet them at the airport especially cash since he had never been face to face with either one of them. memorial weekend is our annual santa cruz trip. we anticipate all year this year was extra special because nana and papa rented a beach house. we had so much fun going to the beach, mariannes for ice cream, the boardwalk, and the aquarium. june is always a favorite because it was the end of preschool and the beginning of summer. july is the fourth of july pancake breakfast the kids love to ride their bikes in the parade while we all watch. this fourth we went with the nelsons and the older kids to lake natoma. we took the aluminum boat for a cruise and we all took turns on the rope swing. we always try to pack the summer with campimg it is one of our favorite things. aug was my 30th birthday. brad took me on a week long trip to vegas. sooo amazing it was wonderful to spend time just the two of us. late august was a milestone for wyatt his first day of kindergarden. wyatt was so thrilled to be going to the same school as his cousin lakai. september is the start of fall and is it always the time for a trip to apple hill to visit with aunt evelyn and grandma byrd. october we continued with the tradition of bishops pumpkin patch the kids are obsessed with picking their own pumpkins. before we knew it the holidays were upon us thanksgiving, christmas and new years. so thats the rundown lets keep our fingers crossed and hope i can pull off this blog thing in 2010!!!
