In the Merry Month of June

On Saturday, June 3 we got up at 6am and drove to Paragonah, Utah for the Gunderson (Greg's mom's side) Family Reunion. We stayed in a cabin that was the perfect size for everyone and just about all of the relatives were able to attend!

Greg is the oldest cousin on BOTH the Gunderson and the Burr side. Here he is with all of his Gunderson cousins. 

The Burr grandkids (and me): Abby, Leslie, Joel, Emily, Vanessa, and Meric. This fall there will be THREE more!

Grandpa and Grandma Gunderson with their great grandkids (and Krista). 

Greg had fun playing games with his cousins and brother Eric.

Here is Greg with his four siblings. Yep, they are definitely related! In picture: Aubry, Greg, Eric, Rachel, and Malerie. 

Our little family...some day our kids will learn how to smile during pictures. It was a great reunion with great food, visiting, games, and the not-to-be-forgotten lip sync competition. Lets just say Greg performed a Spice Girls song with his brother and brothers-in-law. Although we weren't able to stay at the reunion long, we were glad we were able to come!

Emily started swim class a couple of weeks ago at the YMCA. She is progressing and LOVES her class (and her new watermelon swimsuit). 

After her first week we took all of the girls swimming at the YMCA. It is difficult to go swimming with three little kids when none of them can swim, but we all survived and turns out, they are all cute!

We bought Emily this awesome magic clip Sleeping Beauty doll and told her that if she did everything on her chart for 2 weeks she could get it. It was awesome! She cleaned the toy room, made her bed, cleared off the table, did service, etc. We were so proud of how hard she worked! Now we have to figure out how to get her to do that stuff ALL of the time!

Leslie and Abby playing in the grass at the park.

Abby LOVES playing with baby dolls. Unfortunately this doll is her favorite and it cries all of the time... it totally throws me off!

She is the cutest and most playful when she is supposed to be in bed...

My mom was showing me some pictures from her yearbook the other day and left it at our house. I came across this picture and had to put it on our blog. Don't you think we look alike??

Greg and I went on an awesome date on Tuesday night to 'The Phantom of the Opera'. It was an amazing performance and always so fun to go out!

Thanks Joel for the awesome tickets! We had a great time!

 Just in case you needed to see another cute picture...

 "Look mom, I can drink out of a straw!"

Unfortunately she lets me know that she is done eating after she pours the remainder of her water all over her. I guess I'm happy that it's water and not something sticky or that will stain.

When I was a kid my mom made me, Whitney, and Ashley name sweatshirts (I still have mine...it's a little small). So, we decided to do it for our girls. I couldn't get a normal picture of them in the shirts, but at least their personalities really come out in this picture!!

Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day weekend was so fun this year! We had the Gabrielsens stay with us one night and the Duckworths stay with us two nights! It really is nice to have a husband who runs a cleaning business!!

Abby and Danny had fun playing together.

 Cousins: Emily, Alice, Leslie, and Charlie

On Saturday we drove up to Tamarack and went on a fun hike with Joel's family and the Gabrielsens.

It was really beautiful!

Crazy cousins!

The kids loved being in nature: me, Leslie, Caroline, and Emily.

 Savannah, Leslie, and me.

Here we are by the ski lifts.

Everyone told me to put a football in my shirt so I'd look pregnant. Ha ha, I'm not!!

The beautiful scenery

We even found some snow!

 The gang

We know how to have a good time!

Walking back

Birthday Month

May is birthday month around here. My birthday is on the 15th and Emily's is on the 17th. I can't believe I am 33 and have 3 children...that's A LOT of 3's in my life!

Emily had been talking about her birthday for months, so we tried really hard not to disappoint her! Turning 5 is a big deal!

2 sisters = 2 friends!

 Ready to blow out the candles!

It's official now! We have a 5-year-old!

Maybe we overdid it with the gifts this year...

I think we did a good job with the gifts because the girls played and played for days with the toys!

On Saturday, May 20, we met up at the park with my parents and my brother Joel's family. We ate cake and ice cream. The kids had fun playing on the playground while the women visited.

The men played some pretty intense football!

 Abby continues to be really cute and brighten my day!

She crawls all over the place and is starting to pull herself up. Her new favorite thing are necklaces, as you can see in this picture.

Leslie is at the stage where she is ALWAYS hungry, but it is hard to say no to this face!

On Thursday, May 25, Emily graduated from Preschool. Her teacher, Miss Laura, brought Emily a lot of happiness this year!

Our little Emily is growing up!

We sure love having three little girls!
