What it's like having 4

The last day of June Kristie had baby Daisy, so we went
down to visit them soon thereafter.  
What a cutie!  I love new babies.
We are so happy that they were able to
add another baby to the mix.

Look how pretty they both are

Mommies and their babies :)

To help out with recovery we asked if we could take Lilah for a few days.
She's easy enough, my boys adore her, it's a win for all involved.
So last minute we brought her home for the weekend.
What fun having 4 little ones 4 and under.
Friday we went to Nathan's Equation Annual Party.
There were snowcones, face painting, and awesome
balloon making people there.  

Saturday we found a salamander in our backyard,
so we caught him and then took him down to 
the lake to let him go :)
Before letting him go I have hit a new one
of being a mom of boys.
We kept the salamander in that little
bug box, and were watching him until
Nathan got home from a bike ride.
Well, he was by the front door, and then James 
said "opps" I need some help.
The salamander had been trying to climb the
sides, which he couldn't very well, so James was
"helping" him.  That resulted in spilling muddy water
in our front entryway all over.  Not too big a deal,
he helped to clean it up.  Then I sat on our luckily
brown couch, and it was wet! With what I then realized was
dirty salamander water! That was the first place that 
James had tried to "help" the salamander climb the sides.
Yep, offically mom of boys after scrubbing the dirty 
water mostly out of the couch :/

We went to Snowbasin to play on the playground
and had a picnic there.

Cuties :)

Then that night we made smores and
had a fire in our "awesome" firepit
(we didn't do a garden this year, so we 
keep the weeds down and dug a hole in 
the garden area, and will occasionally
build fires there now)
The kids loved it!

Sunday we took them all to church.
Mostly they we pretty good.
It showed me what it would be like to have
four kids someday.
This also showed me how girls are different 
than boys.  Lilah had gotten a mosquito bite on
her foot, so at church she had to keep taking off
her shoe because it itched.
James took Lilah to primary with him,
such cute little second-cousins :)
Lilah ended up not wanting the dress she
had packed for church.  Well, it just so happens that
I have a few dresses from when I was little that I'm
saving for a little girl that I hope to have. 
I brought it out for Lilah, and she LoVeD it!!
Then she let me curl her hair for church too,
and we had matching hair! :)
What a cutie to get my girl fix with:)

Thank you Tom and Kristie for sharing your little girl
with us!  And Congratulations on another little princess!!
