Sunday's are our longest and busiest days of the weeks. Is that the same for you? By the time its 6pm our children are starting to get super antsy and out of control. Usually a nice stroll around the duck pond or temple grounds helps get the wiggles out. Here are some cute videos of Will singing and telling me about the temple.

Wow! 5 years? really? Amazing how fast time flies when you have kids!
Sometimes it feels like we have been married forever.
Its amazing how much you still keep learning, how many times you make the same little mistakes, how many times you say I am sorry and how many times you say I love you.
How is it that 5 years is a short time yet a long time too?
Today we spent the day with our family.
My aunt asked us if we wanted her to watch our boys all day so that we could spend time together. We both felt that being with family was exactly how we wanted to spend and celebrate 5 years. Family relationships and marriage are the most important things in this world to us and today we had fun as a family.
We visited Downtown SLC and ate at Cheesecake Factory that evening.
Kent got me my favorite Dulce de Leche Cheesecake for dessert.
After we came home we put the kids to bed and Kent and I skipped to go see Pacific Rim.
While we were at Grandma and Grandpa's, Will and Sam had a little surprise waiting for them every morning.
Even though they have the busiest lives out of anyone I know, they still took time to open their home for us. Even in the mist of work, callings, house construction... you name it, they took time. The uncles slept in the loft to give us a room and that is the sweetest thing ever. They took care of the boys too!
Grateful for them.
But really its all for their grandkids.
Grandma Judy sure knows how to spoil her grandkids.
Will and Sam had a birthday party in San Diego on July 6th!
First of all, I have the coolest family ever and that is defiantly including my in laws too! This party came together because of them. Its not easy planning a party when you don't even live there.
My Uncle Leo came early that morning and did so much for us that day. My sweet day got up early and saved us a sweet area at the park. My aunts all brought a delicious side dish. my mom made the best rice, beans and Carne Asada oh and we had like 5 different kinds of salsa. My sweet mother in law Judy bought and cut up all the fruit AND brought the yummiest and cutest cake ever!
But what really made this so great, was having so many come and share this wonderful day for our boys.
Thank you everyone!
For the decorations, I printed a picture of Sam's first year. Each picture represents a month.
For Will I printed out a picture of when he was 1, 2, 3 and 4!
We spent the morning with my family at my Aunt's Spanish Branch annual breakfast.
Will played with cousins and got soaked with water guns. Mean while Sam was stuffing his cute face with whatever my mom gave him. Kent and I enjoyed talking with my cousins and branch members.
Later that day we had dinner with my in laws. One of the many things that I love about my mother in law Judy, is her love to decorate for any occasion. I love that. Anyone that knows me, knows that I am a sucker for that.
My cousin Caroline and her husband invited us over to her house to watch firework at her apartment in Downtown.
So while Grandma Judy and Grandpa Keith took Will and Sam to the SD Zoo, Kent and I went to Sea World.
First thing we did was go on the Roller Coasters.
It was so nice going to a theme park without kids.
After that we went over to The Sea Otter exhibit to see the trainers feed the baby Sea Otters on the other side of the glass.
After Robby ( the Otter training) finished telling us about Otters, we went up to him and started asking him questions, and next thing you know, he took us in side the otter nursery! I'm not gonna lie, I almost cried. My inner child couldn't believe that I had the privilege of being up close!!!
Kent took some video of this experience too but i'll post that later.
