 Maylee Grace is doing great reading!  She loves to read to Endale.  It's so sweet.

Trip to Explora

Our church gifted us a family annual pass to the Explora Science Center.  It is such a fun place for the kids to go where they can TOUCH EVERYTHING.  We took a day and went as a family before school started.  The water section and the log building were probably among the favorites parts; however, the whole crew loves the giant elevator with couches in it. It's big enough to a car in!

The Princess turns 6!

Like millions of girls all over the world since the Frozen epidemic, Maylee Grace too "let it go" and had a Frozen themed birthday party.  She invited two friends over and we had pizza, cake and then watched Frozen on the big screen in the backyard!

 She was very excited about her mini American Girl doll!  She also got "Honey" the American Girl dog who has since been pampered at our house.

Unexpected Trip to Phoenix

Due to some unfortunate circumstances, we took an unplanned trip to Phoenix.  Matt's mother passed away unexpectedly.  It ended up being a nice "forced time away" as a family.  We were able to spend some time with friends and family members while we were away.  We also got to go to a Diamondbacks game!

 What could have been a wonderful picture of all my boys turned into Payton's facial expression of....Mom, I am already sick of you taking pictures.

 This is Ruby.  She is 3 months old and Endale is 2!
 This is Ruby's big sister, Georgia.  Maylee Grace and Georgia had a blast playing together.

 This is my friend Jen (Mommy to Ruby and Georgia and daughter of the Struss family who graciously opened up their home to our crazy crew!)

 It was so nice to get to spend time with Aunt Rachel, Aunt Sasha and Aunt Stephanie (not pictured).
