On Thursday, a lawnmower near Eastlawn Cemetary hit a rock and let off some sparks which caused a huge forest fire on Provo's East Mountain bench. Because it's so hot and dry right now, it really spread up the mountain. Thankfully not into our neighborhood, although, it was pretty close!

We've been struggling getting Daniel to sleep lately, so we made a sticker chart where Daniel could earn a trip to Chucky Cheese with a friend. It took him several weeks to finally go to sleep 3 nights in a row without a tantrum or a million excuses, but he finally earned his trip to Chucky Cheese. He was excited to have Cousin Barrett come along.
Daniel had been dreaming for weeks about riding this big truck. Before we started the sticker chart, I walked him through Chucky Cheese and showed him all of the rides, so he would know what he was working towards.
The highlight for Nathan at Chucky Cheese was looking for plates with leftover pizza crusts from other patrons and digging in!
Paka didn't know what he was getting himself into when he started sharing birthday cake with Nathan. He throughly LOVES to eat.
Daniel was really excited at the idea of riding the ponies, but once he got on, he wasn't so sure he liked it!
They had the cutest little baby foal at the farm which Nate LOVED. Below he kept pointing to it and it was hard to pull him away. He really gets excited about animals.

Dave and Ashley went to Napa Valley for Dave's friend Michael Mitton's wedding. It took place on a remote hilltop ranch in Calastoga.
The wedding was a mostly traditional jewish wedding, so Dave and Ashley had fun watching all of the traditions.

Daniel with his best friend Jonny. They are inseparable these days and he seems to go everywhere we go!
The boys love going to Provo's Memorial Pool. They built this kid pool a few years ago and it is perfect for Daniel and Nathan. It's shallow and they love to run in the fountains and go down the slides. Plus, there's lots of lifeguards to help Ashley watch the kids!
Nate really enjoys walking around the pool and checking out the scenery. Just after we took this picture, Nate lost one of his shoes, so we spend the rest of the day walking around the pool until we found it.
We've been having beautiful weather lately in Utah so Ashley decided to take the boys on a little hike in Provo Canyon.
Nathan wanted to walk along to trail too. Ashley had to bribe him with treats to keep him in his stroller (at least part of the time). He is one active little boy!
Daniel was enjoying taunting Nate by sitting on the ball, instead of giving it to him. Don't you just love big brothers!
An attempt at taking a picture of Ashley with the boys. This picture kind of illustrates our life right now-- the boys don't sit still and Ashley is always chasing after them.
