Happy anniversary

Yesterday marked 7 years for Jamie and I. If you would have asked what my life would be like in 7 years from that day, I would have never guessed it would be so full. We are so lucky to have all the things we do!! I'm looking forward to many more years together. Jamie did a pretty good job too...
Ah, that magical day!!!

Tooth fairy

Makenna woke up to a note from the tooth fairy and $3. She was so excited!!

Coming home from camp!

A very big event happened on the way home from camp fox... Makenna lost her first tooth! Daddy pulled it out on the ferry ride home!  Now the tooth fairy is going to make a trip!
  (I will come and add pictures from their trip a bit later... They are still on daddy's phone!)

Saturday with mom!

While daddy and makenna were away, the boys and I had some work to do!! Wyatt was pretty bummed out that he was left behind though.  Lucky for him, aunt michele came by and saw how sad he was. She took him to her house to walk the dog, feed the pets and bake cookies. She even took him to mcdonalds!! He had so much fun that he didn't want to come home!! I can say it 1,000 times, but I am EXTREMELY thankful to live by my family and have the extra love and help so close. It has been so amazing for my kids!!
Owen and I chatting about our day!
Wyatt went outside and helped mark the wall for daddy to demo!! Lol
Papa went to Home Depot with us! We went to get stuff for our garden and got lucky! It was kid craft day!! Papa helped Wyatt build a bird feeder to put in the backyard!! I can't wait to hang it up!! Another awesome experience for Wyatt!
Here are our purchases for the day! I think we are going to be ready for grandma Cindy to come and help! I can't wait to have veggies in our back yard!! Yum yum yum!!

Going to camp fox

Jamie and makenna are doing indian princess together. The big trip of the year is going to camp fox. Three other dads and their daughters met at our house to carpool down to get on the boat. Us wives were laughing at the amount of luggage brought by 8 people for 2 days!! I can't wait to hear all about it and see the pictures!! What a great experience!!!
Ready to go!!


I know I've said it before, but Wyatt loves his brother. They are going to be best buds when they are older. Wyatt loves to stash monster trucks and tractors in Owens bed when he is sleeping. He also loves laying on the floor mat with Owen and showing him all the toys. I lovethe  relationship that is forming between them. It's such a good feeling to be at home and watch it happen! I'm one lucky mom!

Birthday celebration!

To celebrate Wyatt we decided to have a family get together at the local pizza place. We invited a few friends too! They decorated the tables with Wyatt's favorite color, orange. We had so much fun. I think he enjoyed watching daddy model his new clothes!! ;) it was a great evening!!


One of my grandpa Buyer's favorite places to go before he passed was Fair Oaks Pharmacy. He always said they had the best ice cream. Mom took all of us there for a treat the other day. Yep, grandpa was right, it's DELISH!!


Wyatt absolutely loves his baby brother. He constantly asks to hold him and tell him stories. The other morning Wyatt was telling Owen lots of stories!! I think Owen loved them, don't you?! (Again, this makes my heart melt!)

Sneak peak

While we were at the beach, we decided to catch a few pictures of Owen... And a few family portraits too. Here are the two sneak peeks that he sent to us!! I cannot love them more!! Perfection!!

Wyatt turns 3!!!

Where has the time gone? It feels like yesterday that Wyatt was born. He is such a blessing to our family. He is hands down one of the funniest kids I know. He makes up his own jokes, laughs at himself and always keeps us smiling. I am so lucky to be his mom! There is no place that he loves more (well other than Ome's house) than the beach. What a perfect place to celebrate him!! I love you little buddy!! 

Playing with aunt nancy

Aunt nancy is amazing!! She took the kids down to the beach to run around and have fun! I am so thankful that they get to play and have so much fun with her! Aunt nancy, you ROCK!!!

Adding things to look at in her egg!

Makenna was adding grass to the bottom of her egg!

Ome decided to make sugar eggs to decorate out house for Easter. The kids were so excited!


There is nothing quite like watching the sunset! It is so peaceful and unique. I love the beach!

Beach life

Ryder and makenna will share memories, stories and a friendship forever. Priceless!
Exploring the ocean! I'm so thankful that Wyatt is more comfortable with the ocean and water.
Making a masterpiece.
Cousin love!
