2015-2016 School Year

The girls started school this week.  Clara was so excited to start kindergarten. I woke them up in the morning and they both said that they were nervous.  I'm glad that they have each other at school now. 


Here's my little cutie pie on her first day of kindergarten...


Aiyana ready for second grade...





The girls with their friend Lexi...


Aiyana at her desk...


She shed not one tear, but her momma did :o(.


The first day of school was chaotic and I only managed to grab the one photo of the girls with their friend Lexi so some of us moms vowed to do a re-peat first day drop off so we could get the kiddos together for some pictures before they started class.

Day Two

 Here's Aiyana with her friend Makenzie...


Aiyana, Makenzie, Clara & Melia...



We tried really hard to get a group of dance friends together for a school picture.  We are missing Alicia, Isabella, Melania and Makenzie in this picture.

Aiyana's 7th Birthday Party

Aiyana had so much fun celebrating her 7th Birthday with all of her friends.


The water slide was such a huge hit last year so we decided to do it again this year.  It's perfect entertainment for a July birthday in Phoenix.  The company set it up on Friday and the girls got to use it before the party started on Saturday.


I tried to catch a picture of all of the guests going down, but I know I didn't get everyone.

Page Vacation | 4th of July

Saturday we celebrated Independence Day in style. Dana's sister made super cute shirts for all of the kids.


The kids got to ride in the parade and throw out candy.  Here they are before the parade got started.


The boys...


Here they are during the parade...





All of the cousins in their shirts.  We are missing Lorin and Sunnie's 6 girls.



Gunny sack racing at the park...




After the 4th of July Festivities we headed back for one last day at the lake.




Skye and Aiyana were joined at the hip most of the week...



More tubing fun...



Introducing the girls to cliff jumping.  I don't know why we did this.  Aiyana was totally in love with it and that scares me.


Tessa jumping...


Dana jumping with Clara...


Aiyana...

Aiyana again...

Heading in for the fireworks...


Before we watched the fireworks we had Navajo tacos at Dana's parent's house.  Siobhan's son, Jayce, was taking his first steps...


We got a great view of the fireworks show overlooking the golf course.



Just one minute earlier this child was begging for another sleep-over with her cousins.  They were all running out of steam by the end of the week.


The next morning we headed home, but everyone put together a birthday breakfast and some gifts for Aiyana's 7th Birthday.
