June and July

I've been waiting to make a post because its sad for me to post over our Holland Days but life have to go on. Here are some of the highlights since we've been back. I think the only real reason people even look at blogs is to see photos so that is mostly what this will be. I have mastered the baby shower. I have had 3 new baby nieces born this last month, two of which I did showers for. One was a Circus theme and the other had an owl theme. I learned I like to throw party's and plan them but not necessarily to participate in them. Leiden had her preschool end of year program and did such an awesome job. She always sings the loudest and has some crazy antic going on to entertain the masses. This year it was pulling her bakers hat down over her face and popping back out of it. Jake and Link got matching pirate tattoos. We went to Saint George with some friends and on the way stopped in a ghost town where I found this cute house. We played in the water in the center of town and did a few hikes in Zions. Leiden showed the boys who was boss!!! Jake and I continued our quest for a clutter free life and it makes him feel better to take photos of stuff before saying goodbye. :( Link has never found anything he doesn't like in his mouth, be it a mallow or a foot. My sister in law passed on a shirt I have been coveting for a long time. I promised to treat it well and give it the love it obviously deserves. We went camping and boating. Then Leiden got spoiled for her birthday. Lastly Lincoln got into Leidens minty toes pedicure cupboard and gave him self and the bathroom a makeover.

Online Photo Album

We setup a Picasa Web Album to post our pictures because it's a pain to post a lot of pictures in Blogger. Check out the album here:

Lincoln the Star!

This group of tourists is more interested in Lincoln than the giant Wooden Shoe!

Couple o' Vide o'

Here's a couple of videos of our trip so far.

First up ... Riding bikes out of Vondelpark

Next up ... Leiden feeding the birds at Dam Square

In Amsterdam from Leiden

In this picture I'm smelling a flower.

I am at the playground at Vondelpark in this picture. There was a cool castle to climb on and tires to go through. I also built a tepee with some dutch kids. I couldn't understand what they were saying so I would run to my dad and ask him what they were saying then he would tell me something to say back to them.

I am getting my picture taken with mom here and both of us are holding roses. A girl handed these to us for free.

We are taking a picture by the water here. I like the boats on the water. I also think the draw bridges over the water are cool.

This picture is of me and Lincoln - it was at night and I was jumping across the beds. Lincoln thought it was soooo funny. He wanted to stick his hand up so I copied him to stick my hand up too.

Quick Update

Well this is weird. When I uploaded the photos it just added them as jibberish text so I can't alter them and there is this one that I can delete because I dont know where one starts and the other begins. Oh well I am terrible at this. So since I last posted we went to disney land with Oma and Opa and were later joints by our personal expert on all things disney "Chelsea" oh and she brought her hubby :) Leiden has been trying new foods and talked herself into liking artichoke. (no idea if that is spelled correctly). I also got a new bike!!! Wahoooo!!! Then there is this photo of my dad with Lincoln. so so cute. Stay tuned for more exciting posts from Holland.
