Maddie's teeth

Poor little Maddie has bad teeth. I took the twins in for a check up at 24 months and noticed some decay on Maddie's teeth. The dentist said that he would keep an eye on it and to come back in 3 months. After 3 weeks I noticed they were worse, so I brought her back in. The dentist confirmed that they had developed cavities and she needed 2 teeth capped and 2 filled. By the time the appointment came around, the poor baby had to have 2 removed and the 2 in back filled. Poor girl didn't have the proper enamel to help fight decay. She is now doing much better but with 2 less teeth

This is Maddie when we got home and the anesthetic was wearing off.

Happy 4th of July

We started out by attending the God and Country fireworks show in Nampa on the Wednesday before the 4th. We always enjoy hanging out with friends in the evening and waiting for the show to start. unfortunately this year, Nick lost his glasses that ended up costing us $230 for a new pair:( Still had fun that evening with the Belnaps and my parents. This was also the first time we took the twins to watch the fireworks and they loved it!

On the 4th we went to the Melba parade with my parents. Trent had to work in the morning, so we headed out without him. Luckily my mom likes parades also so we went with them then went to teh small carnival afterwards. We met Matt and Brandy there so the kids could hang out with their cousins also.

That evening we went to the Star firework show and it was one of the best we've seen. Great day all around!

Davis family reunion 2017

This was the 1st time our family did a reunion. We rented a huge cabin in Jackson California for a few days. My parents, Matt, Jeff, Casey and all our families attended. It was very hot, but we had a lot of fun swimming, playing and doing our evening devotionals.

Universal studios

Trent and I took Bailey and Nick to Universal Studios while my parents watched the twins at Grandma Parsons house. It was a nice break to get away for 2 days and be able to have a little fun with the older kids.

We got there just after the park opened and stayed until closing.

Hogwarts Castle in the new Harry Potter Adventure land.

And a huge donut from Mo's in the Simpsons world.

Afterwards we spent the day relaxing and stopping along the coast as we headed back to grandmas.

trip to California

A few weeks ago, we were able to go as a family to California. We stayed with GRandma Parsons in Santa Margarita, went to Universal Studios for a few days and ended at a big cabin in Jackson for a family reunion. We were not sure how easy it would be traveling with 4 kids (and 2 year old twins) but we ended up having a blast. It would have been a little better if the twins didn't end up sick the whole time, but it was still fun.

Grandma Parsons and Dad's birthday on June 10th

The un-birthday Party that Aunt Pam threw for the kids. It was MIckey Mouse theme and so cute!

All About Bailey

Today Bailey had her gymnastics recital. She is not very competitive, but it was really good for her to come out of her shell a little bit. Bailey is very shy and is always afraid to try new things. This year she is doing better and really beginning to blossom. She is doing well in school, loves to play with friends and now starting to enjoy gymnastics. I'm very proud of this girl!

All about Nick

I was able to go with Nicks class to the Botanical Gardens. It was nice to leave the twins with my parents so I could join him and his class for their field trip. Nick had a great time and the weather was perfect.

The next day Nick had his 1st grade music program. We took the twins to this (and yes they were both being pills) but Nick did great and was so proud of all the songs he learned. 

 Look how tall he is in the first row. 

This school year is winding down and we are all getting prepared for summer vacation. Gonna be fun playing in the warm sun, but I'm not gonna be ready for 4th and 2nd grade next year. These kids are growing up too fast!

More spring fun!

Egg hunts, treats and the Easter Bunny

We had a wonderful Easter this year. On Saturday morning, the kids had a great time hunting for Easter eggs in our subdivision park. The eggs were hidden so the kids had to hunt for them.

The next day was Easter Sunday and we went to my parents church to celebrate easter with them. Afterwards Matt's family joined us for another egg hunt and a nice turkey dinner. This is the best picture we could get of the kids after church. they were not the most cooperative.

Bailey sure loves her Grandpa Davis

Happy Easter 2017~
