Most of our front yard was almost finished from last year so there was just some finishing touches we did to it this year.

More Backyard Pictures

The fountain is Bryan's pride and joy, he absolutely had to have the sound of running water in the backyard. You don't know how many times I've cought him out on the patio at night listening to it and looking at the stars. LOL.. The girls love playing in the little fort and pretending to make food:)

It has been so exciting seeing it all come together. We've loved how it's turned out and can't wait to start planting!

Finishing Our Backyard

For the last two months we have been getting our yard finally finished! Hurray!! I can not believe what a process it is to landscape a yard. And how much money goes into it! Well I wanted to show the before and after of our yard. We are so excited to have a backyard now so our girls can enjoy it:)

Dancing Queen

I just signed Gracie up for her first Dance class! She will be taking it with two of her friends Cher and Adelyn and she is way excited! She loves her new dance outfit and ballet shoes. She asks me everyday if she can put them on and dance. The class is called Fairy Tale Ballet and they read the girls a story and then they get to dress up in princess costumes and learn ballet. I thought that was such a cute idea for their age. I hope she enjoys it:) What a pretty little ballerina!

Dinosaur Museum

We went to the Dinosaur Museum at Thanksgiving Point last Friday. Gracie's favorite movie for months now has been Land Before Time or any movie with "Dinors" as Gracie would say. So we knew she would love seeing them up close. She was just like a sponge soaking it all in loving every second of it. At the end we went to the gift shop and she picked out this purple "Dinor" and hardly parts with it since. She watches TV with it takes it to bed with her over to Grandma and Papas house. And gets mad if Sabrina so much as looks at it. LOL.. Dinors is officially a new member of the family as far as Gracie is concerned.

Honk Honk get out of the way!

I thought this was so cute! Gracie wanted Sabrina to hop on the back of her car and take her for a stroll. Sabrina loved it! Looking at this picture makes me laugh also because Gracie is such a driver in personality and Sabrina is just along for the ride. :) Love these girls!

Cascade Springs

Bryan and the girls and I have really been enjoying the mountains this year. It is so awesome that we are only five minutes away from American Fork canyon. We have been going up there once a week if not more and are surprised how we never get sick of it. We found a perfect little camp ground we go to every week for family night and roast hot dogs or do tin foil dinners and of course smores! We went to Cascade springs in July and couldn't believe we haven't been there before. All the little water falls flowing through the mountains and the cute little bridges you walk over. Just a beautiful place and easy trail hike.
