June did not have as many high picture events, but we still have a very full month of adventures.
First up, Mr. Dallin boy turned 11. 11!!!! I was filled with love, amazement and a touch of sadness about my oldest growing up too fast.
Here is my gushy Facebook post that day reflecting on motherhood:
Spent the day loving on my sweet birthday boy. My oldest son Dallin is 11! Also, much self reflection on being a mom these past 11 years. Wow, what a ride it has been. I can't imagine how boring my life would be without my little people. They sure do make life good. I love being a mom, it is all I ever wanted, and I have been so blessed by each sweet child that has come into my open arms. The longer I am a mom, the more I am able to put aside the things that are less important and enjoy life as it is. I see my life in bright vivid color, just dripping with texture and purpose. Hardest, but best job ever! Peter and I have been trying to come up with future goals, but have had a hard time because we are right where we would like to be forever. Even with all its imperfections, I really think life is just right. Sure I could tell you all of the negatives that happen in reality, but for this moment, I feel totally encompassed with gratitude for this wonder we call mortality.
Dallin really likes Minecraft so we had a family party with lots of minecraft inspired food.
The game was a huge it with the kids! I think it was one of the most fun birthday games we have played. The excitement level was about as high as could be.
First day hot enough to play in the water outside. Eden and Luke have such a special relationship. She mothers him and he loves the attention. I often see him on her back.
Oh, Luke took a toy car to the face, hence the black eye. He also fell and bruised his back on a skateboard and fell on the cement at the pool and got a huge goose egg on his forehead all around the same time. He was looking pretty beat up.
The next morning was Father's day AND Tanner's birthday. With so much going on, Peter didn't get a proper breakfast in bed. We made s'mores in the oven the night before to take to the drive in and then forgot them, so that was what the kids gave Peter for his breakfast! Uh, yum! And apparently a Starburst as well.
