Baby Stuff for Sale!

If you are in need of some great hand made baby items, you need to check out my sister in-law Heathers blog.  She is selling some really cute baby things that she has made, and her prices are really great.  The pictures below are just a small sample of some of the things she has.
Way to go Heather!  You had a lot of really cute things for Melon Days this year. Too bad my baby isn't so much a baby anymore, but a toddler.  I still need to have you do a tie for me though.  That was just cute, and I forget to try it on Zach while we were there.

Melon Days 2009

This past weekend was the annual Melon Days Celebration in Green River, UT.
We go every year to visit with family and friends, as well as help my mom, who is over the park part of the day.
I am posting a lot of pictures so that I can get a little of the whole family.  The only one missing from the pictures is Kelly and Jaden.  Both of them never seemed to be around when the pictures were being taken.
Here Zach and Kylie are waiting for the parade to start.  Sitting in the stroller did not last as long as I would have hoped it would.
Here you can see a few more of the cousins as they are waiting for some candy to be thrown their way.

More parade watchers, Jodi, JJ, Heather, Kinsey, and Vance(Ryan's friend)

More of the parade.  Kalen, Greg, and Ryan my brothers in the background.

Mandy and Kinsey
Kylie and Allie
Allie just loves her cousin Kylie.  She was always looking to see where she was going to go next, and making sure that she was part of it.  Kylie loves every minute that she gets to spend visiting and playing with Allie.  I wish she enjoyed playing with her her brother that much.
Grandma and Grandpa Brian relaxing in the shade of the booth.
Grandpa Parsons doin some relaxin too!

Here I am taking one of my turns at making cotton candy.
My little man Zach.
Zach loved Grandma's golf cart that she drives around.  This was practically a baby sitter for me.  He loved pretended to drive.  Here he is taking the little girls for a ride.

Now all of the kids are in for a ride.

Here Grandma P has a car full.  The only one missing the ride is Zach.  He went home to have a nap.
It was not the easiest picture to get, but Mandy got one snapped before all the kids started moving again.  Mine was the worst!
Just a fun shot!
Kylie and Nathan
Kinsey and Rylee
Zach on the train!
Another picture of him driving.  The smile says look at me mom!

New Beds!

Saturday of Labor Day Weekend, started a busy day, or couple of days anyway for our family.  Saturday, we went to Salt Lake (IKEA) to purchase a new bed for Kylie so that Zach could have her old one.  When we got home that night we got all of Zach's things moved so that he could try his first night in the big bed.
Here is a pic of the bed.  We found him some cute sports themed sheets so now we just have to find a cover.  I wasn't in the mood to buy the one that matched the sheets.  I figured I could enlist the help of my mom and we could tie one sometime.
He didn't really care too much that it was now his bed.  I don't think he really understood it.   But as soon as he saw his animals up there on the shelf, he climbed right up and started throwing them back off.  Like these don't go here.
Then he was done so he climbed back off and went to play again.
The first night went ok, I had to go in a comfort the crier a little bit, but I was able to lay by him for a  second and he went right back to sleep.  
The second night wasn't as good.  I don't think he was feeling too well, so after much crying and screaming we both finally got some sleep sometime around 4 a.m.  And of course the sleep was in my bed and not his own.
So here is the box that Kylie's bed came in, and the mattress that was all rolled up and smashed to look like a giant sleeping bag.
Here is Kylie excited to get her picture taken with her new bed.
And of course the final product.  She likes that she has this little space underneath to play in.  He dolls are under there too, you just can't see them in this shot.  I hope this will help to keep things a little less cluttered in her room.
So the bed is kind of like a bunk bed without the bed on the bottom.
She had her first night of sleeping in it and she said she loved it.

Grandma Brown's 86th birthday!

We went to Pleasant Grove to celebrate Grandma Brown's birthday is the care home that she has been living in.  Here you can see we have Alex who joined us for a little while.  Two days after we had this party they (Dorothy and her sister) actually moved grandma to a new care home.  She will be in Morgan now which is a lot closer for us to go and see her.

Scipio Fire

Here are a couple pictures of the fire just outside of Scipio from a couple of weeks ago.  I guess when Jodi and Scott went through the night before they were the last car to get through before they blocked off the road.  This is what was still burning the next morning. (Sunday)

This picture was taken closer to Scipio, when you turned around you could see the path that the fire had made along the hill side.

Crazy Kids!

It is time for another update.  When looking at blogs I realized that since school had started I had not posted anything.  So here goes my catch up.
Here Zach is showing us what he can do.

He is getting very brave.  Look Mom, No hands!
Zach wanting his close up with the camera.
So Kylie decided she had to have her close up too!
