Daniel has been such a great helper this summer with his sisters. He and Rachel look so much a like-- she's kind of a petite version of what he looked like as a baby.
One of Ashley's favorite things to do in Provo is to go to the Balloonfest on the 4th of July. This year we actually got up and made it for the balloon launch at 6:30 AM! Daniel had fun watching them blow up the hot air balloons.
Ashley's mom came along, which was such a help-- because Nathan was terrified of the balloons being blown up. He spent the balloonfest hiding behind Mimi.
Lizzy is SO interested in her baby sister. It's hard to keep her away when Rachel is in the room. Little girls are just meant to be mothers!
If you have a cell phone and come close to Lizzy-- beware! She is obsessed with cell phones. If she sees one-- there's no diverting her attention!
Nathan loves to do puzzles and he is actually quite good at them. He can do many of the kids ones by himself without any help.
It has been SO SO hot in Utah lately and in Ashley's opinion quite miserable. The boys don't care and want to be outside all of the time. So, Ashley's been taking them out to ride bikes early in the morning, while the weather is still bearable. Nathan is quite the daredevil on his scooter. He knows no fear!
Daniel is so excited about his electric red scooter. He spend 2 months earning it, by learning not to be so obsessed with germs and to keep his hands from bleeding. He loves riding it around the neighborhood.
Ashley bought this double stroller at a garage sale recently. It's been so helpful-- because now she can take the girls out for a morning walk while the boys ride around on their bikes.
Rachel likes looking at all the colors outside. All the stimulation usually helps her take a good morning nap.
