5 months old

My little girl is 5 months old. She is getting so big... and you've got to love her chunky legs! She is 15 lbs 8 oz and about 26 inches long. She is also teething- so she chews on any thing she can get ahold of! She has been a ton of fun- she is giggling, she has the best facial expressions ( especially when Austin comes around ) and Dallas loves making fun of her chunky -ness!!! We love her so much.

Huckleberry Picking

Its Huckleberry season! Last week Dallas, Austin and I jumped into the explorer and drove up to the mountains to go find huckleberries. We have never done this before so we were ready for an adventure. Our drive took us to Boyer Mtn which is about a half hour away, and up a logging trail. Then we just pulled over, Dallas jumped out and hiked up the hill to see if it was a good spot, and it was, so Austin and I joined him. Then we walked around searching for huckleberry bushes and started picking. We picked for about an hour only got a largeg cool whip bucket full, then Austin started getting cranky.... so it was time to leave. It was a ton of fun, even Austin enjoyed picking, and I got some really great pictures of father and son. Austin climbing up the hill.... you can see Dallas in the background picking already.
He found a stump to play on.... for about 10 seconds!

Austin turns 2

(above) So Austin's birthday was on Friday, Thursday night I made his leggo cake. In fact Linda and I were up till 3am frosting this cake! That night we decided to put the cakes in the room we call the "playroom" it is a room where the grandkids play when they come over, but Austin doesn't play in the there yet, so it is always dark and he hardly goes in there. SAFE right? NOT. Austin hadn't even been up for 10 mins, when I looked around to see where he was. He had gone into the dark room pushed this yellow chair over to the ironing board, and pulled off the marshmellow on his cake. Then proceeded to the door jam, with blue frosting on his lips and said " yum"!! Linda and I were just shocked... it was the funnest thing ever!

July 17th: we spent most of the day at Lisa's for Austin's B-Day. Planned the day before, we called the cousins and invited them to come over for a BBQ - pool and Cake! We had a great time - Thank you Lisa! I can't believe he is two already, it really does go by fast. Austin is such a joy: he is such a BUSY boy. He is always going and never seems to stop, even when he is sleeping. 95% of the time the first thing out of his mouth when he wakes up is either "walk" "ride 4-wheeler" or "tool". He amazes us everyday. Austin is learning his ABC's - he will repeat them after you. And we are also potty training.. going slow but good.

Next morning, playing with his new toys. Between Lisa, grandma J and mommy and daddy. Austin got enough tools to go to work with his daddy and not have to borrow much!! I can't believe how realistic these tools are, from hammers to the drill. Its so cool! He is in heaven!

Cute tool belt, he wears it every where.

4th of July

The Dilley clan went to McCall, Idaho for the fourth of July this year! It was hot, had a crazy thunder storm one night, went four wheeling for two days, went floating down a lazy river, watch a great firework show on the lake and still needed at least one more day! Brian, Carly, and Aven came up from Provo. Dallas' sister Linley and her husband Kasey came down from Seattle. Then Grandma and Grandpa Dilley and of course Dallas, the kids and I !!
