Happy Birthday RYDER!

Ryder turned 3 in May! He is getting so big. He is crazy about trucks and digging. He is so fun! We love him!! Happy Birthday RY!

Baby Ryder "flying"! Ryder used to cry a lot as a baby. Flying made him stop...

Ryder one-year-old! Golfing with Daddy!

Ryder 2 years! These are Ryder's favorite boots to "work" in. He still wears them, but they are getting tight.

Trip to Palm Desert

We got to take a trip to Palm Desert with Grandma and Grandpa Hales. The weather was so nice. Low 90's!! We had a great time swimming and relaxing.
This is Ryder on the airplane.

Eating at Sevilla. It was a Spanish restaurant in Riverside. Brad and Emily were so excited to go there. I don't love Spanish food, but my meal was actually pretty good.

Ryder ran back and forth from the pool to the sprayers. He loved it!

Em and Ry on the waterslide.

Rafe chillin at the pool.

Digging with Grandma! Ryder's favorite part was the sandbox.

Perfect temperature! I could live there...(at least in April!)

Heroes and Aquarium

The Aquarium is so fun! We bought a year pass so I am really excited to go back. It was hard to see everything because it was really busy the day we went. We still had such a fun time!

Ryder and Makenna were not interested in taking pictures! There is a giant snake behind us!

Rafe was so good. He loved watching everything from the stroller. This was the only time he got out and he was loving it. The penguins were so cute!

Kylee is on the SLCC softball team and she does a Heroes assembly for the local elementary schools. She did such a good job and she was so cute with the kids.

Introducing the Heroes!

Ryder loves Aunt Kylee!

Ryder - Tonsils!

Ryder has had strep eight times in the last year so we decided it was time to get his tonsils out. He did really good. This is a picture of him before the surgery. He was cute and very brave!

This is Ryder after the surgery. He wasn't very happy and he slept most of the day. He hated having all the monitors and tubes attached to him. We got to go home that evening. He asked for french fries on the way home! He has been eating and drinking pretty good. He wants to play all day, but he gets tired fast. We are happy with how things went. He is doing really well!

The Boys!

I have been looking through old pictures. I think that my boys look a lot alike. This is Rafe at 4 months and Ryder at about 4 1/2 months.

Christmas Fun!

We had so much fun this year! Ryder loved Santa and all the attention. :)
My Mom got Ryder and Rafe matching dump truck pajamas. Rafe is getting so big and starting to look so much like Ryder.

Our family on Christmas Eve

All of Ryder's cousins were here this year. He LOVES them! He had so much fun playing with them. This is all of the kids at the cabin. It was a long night, but it was really fun. :)

This post is for me. I think that this might be the month of many colors and I wanted to remember this one. I had Chrisi dye my hair. I think more for entertainment than anything else. It is a reddish dark brown. It is a little darker than I had planned, but I will keep it for a bit.
