Happy Birthday Dallin!!

It's me-Allery. I'm taking over for Gabby today! ;) My baby boy is 7 years old today! I can't believe it. Where has the time gone? Can't believe he is 7, and that we have been in our current home in Michigan for 7 years! I was 8 1/2 months pregnant with Dallin when we moved in! He was a handful when he was born. Very CRANKY, but so worth all the sleepless nights! Each year Dallin just keeps getting sweeter and sweeter! Not sure how much sweeter he can get. He has definitely taken the role of the peacemaker in the family, and is such a wonderful big brother to his little sister. He's a classic little brother who loves and looks up to his big brother.
I am so thankful to have this little guy in my life! Happy Birthday Dallin!! I love you!

So, let me explain why he looks so sad in the first picture! Yesterday I realized he had a fever midmorning, which was a major bummer, considering he was supposed to have his birthday party in the afternoon. He was heart broken after Matt broke the news to him, and I felt so bad for him. We ended up calling the doctor since his temp was at 1o3 and was still climbing. He diagnosed him with the flu and put Dallin on tamiflu. He was pretty much lethargic all day, and went to bed early. This morning, which was his birthday, he woke up feeling good. However, after playing around just a few minutes, he was beat and rested all morning at home, while Matt, Kaiden, and Dallin went to church. He held onto his birthday present all morning and watched the clock until Matt and the kids got back.
As soon as the Matt and the kids got back, Dallin ripped into his present and was surprised to see a Nintendo DS. He was pretty happy. He started perking up and his fever went away. Knock on wood, he went to bed fever free and feeling good. We'll see how he is in the morning.

Like I said earlier, where has the time gone? I can't believe he is 7 already!!

Happy Birthday Dallin!! I love you!

Hi everyone!! Just wanted to say Hi and see how you're doing!! I haven't written for a LONG time!! I started my second year of preschool, and next year I'm going to be in kindergarten!! I can't believe it, and neither can my mom!!! I go to school for half the day, then I get to come home and play with Mom!! My school is at the same school that Dallin goes to, so some days, when Mommy picks me up, we eat lunch with Dallin. He likes it! Dallin is in 1st grade this year. He is doing awesome!! So far he has gotten a 100% on his spelling test every week! And he got a 100% on his math test too! Kaiden is in 4th grade this year. He's getting old!!! He is also doing great at school! I hope you are all doing well, and I promise to write more!!


I need to tell you about Destin. We went on vacation with Nana and Granddad, Uncle Ryan and Aunt Elizabeth, Uncle Bradley, Aunt Jenny, and baby Cameryn. (or Camera, as I like to call her! hee hee) We went there the week before school started! It was a last hoorah for the end of summer.

We couldn't of asked for more perfect weather! I had so much fun! Nana called me a little fish, because I wanted to play in the water from the morning until dinner time! It was fun to play with my brothers and Cameryn.

Dallin, Kaiden, and Daddy had lots of fun boogie boarding! They got pretty good at it! I also had some time on the board! Here's Dallin giving it a try.

Here's Daddy. . .

And Kaiden also took a turn! Look at him ride that wave in!!

My brothers and I got sooo tan! And I still got it!!

It was very relaxing on the beach. The sound of the waves just puts everyone to sleep, like Nana here!

Did I mention that we LOVED being at the beach???

Here's Aunt Elizabeth and Uncle Ryan chillaxing.

Who would of thought we would of seen a pirate ship!!

This guy is kinda cute in his own little way, right?

Maybe not!!!

Dallin looks a little worried being this close to alligators!

Or maybe it's the shark!! Aghhh!!!

We did some serious go-karting while we were in Florida. And of course, yours truly took 1st place. Ok, with a little help from Aunt Jenny.

Here some more shots of all the fun!!
