Summer 2010

McKenna's favorite part about SeaWorld-Elmo and Friends
Adeline with Grandpa Wright
Tradition-We have three years worth now
Waiting so patiently for Shamu
Took these at my Aunt's cabin-wish I had the better camera

Adeline loves this-I think Daddy does too:)
McKenna came out of her bedroom with ensemble put together
Riding a pony at This is Place park in Utah-highlight!!!!
Riding the carousel at Hogle Zoo
Such a sweetheart in her stroller-anytime really.
Thought this was funny since she has a puff stuck on her chin.
First day of preschool-she chose the outfit-oh well.
Being sneaky under the table:)
I can't believe it has been since McKenna's birthday party that I have written in here-so sad, but I am just busier than I used to be. We have almost survived summer here and I cannot wait for Halloween because it is usually at that time that it feels like fall here. We had a great summer with trips to San Diego, St. George, and Ogden but I'm glad that we have been home for a while. McKenna is now in preschool three days a week and loves it and loves her teacher. I miss her while she is gone but I actually have time to get things done while Adeline is taking her nap:) McKenna is one sassy 3 year old and she does not forget anything I or Chris say. It keeps us on our toes that is for sure. The other day I was telling her that I was getting frustrated at her lack of listening skills and she said and I quote, "Mom I don't like your bad attitude." Chris was in the room and started laughing, which made me laugh-what can you do? She told on him the other day saying he wasn't being a good example to her sister- a lot to live up to:) She is very independent and loves to help care for Adeline. She is a great big sister except for the fact that if Adeline has something, McKenna will grab it and then offer Adeline something else. This was all fine and dandy up until a couple of weeks ago when Adeline started screaming when McKenna took something from her. Needless to say McKenna is starting to realize that Adeline is becoming more than just a little baby. I can't believe how fast time has gone but Adeline is almost 10 months old and I feel like she was just born. She is crawling all over and loves pulling herself up to stand. She is going to be walking before I know and I just want her to stay little. Such a change from McKenna who I just wanted to grow up. I think that Adeline will be like McKenna in that she will talk to anyone. She loves waving hi and byebye and will clap her hands when anything exciting is happening or if she is listening to a really great song. She has even started dancing a little to music she likes. I have been busy being the new Primary Secretary in our ward, but it is very rewarding. I like knowing that I have responsibilities away from home and that I have to be organized-trying anyway. It has also given me the opportunity to get to know the children in our ward better and they are just awesome. Chris has been busier for the last two months, he took over the Queen Creek store as the manager. It has been a great blessing to our family, but it hard having him work a little more. Life is good though and I am so thankful for my wonderful family of four:)
