30 and lovin it!

July is one of my favorite months, especially in Oregon because it takes till July to get warm!! Also it is my birthday and what girl does not love her birthday? :) Here are some pictures from the last month or so. Hope you enjoy...

Jeremy and I went down with our friends the Adam's to the coast. We rented a beach house and enjoyed the sand and ocean. The kids had a blast and it was good to break away from the routine of life.

This picture cracks me up... Jeremy was giving bread to the nasty birds and they started to swarm us by the dozens. I noticed Chelsea starting to uncomfortable and her bird anxiety was on the rise. I tried to warn Jer but I think at that point he found it all the more funny....

And low and behold, Chelsea had reason to worry. She got the bomb dropped on her!!!

What we do with out our hubbies to dig?

Brek is my angel baby. He was happy as a clam all day.

Nothing is better than when the kiddos are in bed and the games begin.

4th of July ward breakfast

Off to a carnival. My kids had a great Independence holiday.

Off course finish it off with firework show at Oak Hills. I love fireworks, they are magical and make me feel young.

The cousins, best buddies.
I am worried for my future 4th of July's.... I have a house full of pyros :)

Max and Gabe at Safety Town camp

Jeremy, his dad and brother Justin and Jade at a gun course thingy.

Max took this pictures and he cracks me up. He thinks it is so funny to put Breks paci on his head and call it his little hat. The boys get a kick out of it...

Somebody got a visit from the tooth fairy. This is his first lost tooth and he was really excited. The thing has been loose in there for months and he wouldn't let anyone touch it. He told me that the "tooth fairy had blue hair and wore a bright blue dress with shiny things in her hair and she was this big (he used his hands to show me about a foot). She has skills to get the teeth out from under his head and she takes them home, crushes them and builds tooth castles!"
My little snoogies! He is 3 months now!

I cut off my hair. Post pregnancy, you always change something right?
Side view, it looks like a chunk is missing but it just is got my earring I think...
New park that is awesome. We all love it.

Jeremy pushing the kids on the "spinner binner", let's just say he was a fan favorite.

Brek and Ikey

Chelsea and I at a going away party. Thank heaven for good friends!

Swim lessons

So I turned 30 last week and I had a wonderful birthday. Jeremy with the help of friends threw me a surprise party. I had no clue. They all did a great job pulling it off. I felt loved!

On the morning of my birthday we went berry picking... one of my favorite things to do with the fam.

Then I went on a bike ride with Chels (we have been training for a Tri). It was a beautiful day and I was proud of myself for clipping in my pedals and facing the open road with the cars. Nothing better than facing a fear on your special day.

Jer and I took the boys to Toy Story and then I went shopping by myself at the mall (that is a sign that you are getting old when shopping alone is joyful) and I loved looking in all my favorite stores and not having these rugrats to distract me. You gotta love em though!

So cute! I love the picture of Jer with the soda, pretty classic (why do boys have no shame in front of the camera?) and also the guys with dad at the gun place. That was the best idea you've ever had. Jade is still talking about it. And I love Jer wearing the Bijorn. Jade refused point-loank to wear it.

So fun to see all your pictures and catch up on your life!
Just love that smilin' Brek that we've yet to see. Can't wait to see the whole family. Jer and your boys do know how to have a good time. Lookin' forward to seeing ya' all in California!

Love the new hair cut. You look great! I wish I had the courage to change my hair.

Stephanie said...

Fun, cute pics!!! The one of you and Chels at the park is so cute!!! Happy belated birthday!

I love all your pictures! It looks like you guys are having a fun summer! We can't wait to come up and see you and hold Baby Brek. While I was reading your post Boyd was enjoying looking at the pictures too and the first picture of Ike, Boyd said, "De Da" (which is Boyd's nickname and what he calls himself). So he thought it was a picture of him. Maybe they do look a little bit alike after all. Brek is so handsome! I'm so glad that he's been good baby. You all look really great and I love your short hair!! See you in a little less than 3 weeks!

Love the pics, never tire of looking at your beautiful family, my particular favorite was the shovels at the beach...brings back so many good memories of hours spent "digging and building" only to have the water eventually wash it all away! :)

Frank and Julie said...

I love the comment that the tooth fairy takes the teeth and builds castles with them. LOL

Jason and Tricia Loder said...

Love all your summer pics, Kris! What a beautiful family you have. We miss you guys already. Thanks again for letting us come and play with you this week. We loved every minute of it. Already looking forward to the next time... Love, The Loders

love all the pictures! this is what i love about blogging--even though we don't see you guys but every few years, i'm able to just check your site and see how you guys are doing. It makes me feel a little more connected to the "thelin clan". and i LOVE your haircut. I wish we lived up there so I could be in charge of everyone's hair! that would be a lot of fun :)
