My three older kids started school yesterday, which was Monday August 15th. It seems every year summer gets shorter and school starts sooner. They were pretty excited even though I never am; I lose my slave labor during the day ;)
This past Saturday we went to a NICU annual celebration at Sky Ridge Medical Center, where Blake was born. They invited our whole family for brunch, face painting, free group pictures, and visiting with the doctors and nurses who took care of Blake while he stayed in the hospital's NICU. We had a great time and plan on attending every year!
The party scene. The kids played on the awesome playgound on the right.
Our guest of honor, Blake, dressed up for a business meeting ;)
They invited babies and families from the past 10 years.
The food was great and there was a ton of it!
Some of the family chowing down.
Rylie meeting the dinosaur mascot of the Colorado Rockies.
And daddy too!

All my kids at the hospital, we had a great experience there!
Jared and I got married 12 years ago at the L.A. Temple and have 4 awesome kids. Jared works as an accountant, while I stay home and wrangle the kids and all the chaos that goes with it. Some of our favorite things to do as a family are...go to Disneyland, visit family in California, play board games, and just laugh!
