A bunch of "firsts"

First time it was warm enough to lay out on the deck on October 30th!
It was such a gorgeous day that we spent the afternoon on the deck reading, snacking, tanning, and, and making up stories... Gracie and Max would make up stories and Gracie was happy to do the illustrations and production (while Jack and I were happy just lounging around).
We had a wonderful time! And, yes, Maxwell is in his tighty whities... that's how warm it was!

First time we went to Gardner Village for the "Witches Night Out".
I've been wanting to go for years but never found the time! I'm glad we went! It was fun!

First season of soccer! Clay was Jack and Gracie's coach so it was really fun to be so involved! The twins started out a little unsure, but warmed up and finished the season off with a good attitude and a lot of skills (thanks daddy!)!

First time to the Hogle Zoo! Soooo fun and we went on the Perfect day! Gorgeous weather and zero crowds! If you wanna see my control freak daughter who LOVES her Zoo map, go here and look at the video! It makes me laugh.

First BYU football game! Jack and I went to a football game with my brother's inlaws (who are also good friends of mine) It was sooo FUN!!! I'm not a huge football OR BYU fan but it was a blast spending time with Jack. He was so excited and stomped and clapped and sang along with the crowd. Now he calls hot chocolate that is a little too hot "BYU hot chocolate" LOL

First ballet class! She LOVES it and is learning new things each week! When she gets home from class I ask her to show me what she learned. I can't tell you how much I love watching her! Soooo cute!

Some other Firsts-
First day of Kindergarten for Jack and Grace
First day of Pre-School for Max
Sorry no pictures... they were accidentally deleted.... :(
I need to snatch some again

Cute pictures! I love the one of Grace and Max on the deck. Grace always has the cutest little outfits on.
I love Gardners Village! That was a place I used to frequent when I lived there.

I'm so happy you're back to blogging! It's the only way I get to keep up with all you girls down there in the Valley.
