Get ready...

I have been so super behind on blogging lately. I thought things were supposed to calm down in the summertime but so far it seems like we are busier than ever. So instead of doing a ton of little posts, here is some of our month of June in a big ol' blog post.

Since Allie was so good for her traumatic kindergarten doctor visit, she got to choose a toy. She chose this!
She can actually sleep with it on, I would get so claustrophobic.

We took a trip to the zoo

My birthday was on the 6th. All I wanted was new clothes for the summer and my rapidly expanding belly. So Ry gave me a suitcase full of money! It was actually a new temple bag that I desperately needed and it was full of my shopping money in 1$ bills. Each salesperson got a kick out of me counting all my dollar bills to pay for my purchases.
Very clever babe.

Here is the garden we planted at Ry's parent's house. Bob and Sandy (Ryan's parents) have sent in their mission papers and are just waiting to receive their letter that tells them where they are going and when. We are so excited for them! We are also excited that we will be moving into their house while they are gone. Along with taking care of their house comes taking care of their huge yard. They do such a good job at keeping it beautiful and I am just hoping that we can make it look as good as them while they are gone! If you know me, you know I am no gardener but Sandy is teaching me the ropes. I'm gonna make her proud!

Ryan made a garden box for our strawberries...thanks babe!
As many of you know, the Taggart home has become very popular during Halloween thanks to the huge pumpkin patch they have had for the past 2 years. Guess who is running it this year?! We planted the seeds last week...

with any luck, this....

will turn into this! Fingers crossed.
Today Allie had her kindergarten check-up at the dentist. She is much happier at the dentist now that we see Dr. Garner. Which is where Aunt Kim just happens to work ;) Allie just adores Kim.
Thanks Aunt Kim, for curing Allie of her fear of the dentist!!
Tonight we wanted In-N-Out but were not willing to drive to SLC so we made it at home. I must say we did a bang-up job. We made our favorite, "animal style." It was exactly the same! We made the secret sauce, grilled onions and everything.

And last but certainly not least...this little guy. He's just laying down, relaxing in the hot tub. In case you can't tell, his head is on the right and that little nub above his face is his hand. We think he's pretty cute. This was taken a few weeks ago, can't wait to see what this next one looks like!

Hope you're enjoying your summer!

Your summer looks fun so far! I'm SUPER jealous of your huge garden!!! I can totally picture you this Halloween harvesting pumpkins in overalls and your big pregnant belly. Super cute!

Amanda said...

Way cute pictures! It looks like you have been very busy. I can't wait for your garden to grow! I think that will be a lot of fun and a lot of work! Good luck!
