Zach's Gym Class

Today was Z's first day of gymnastics! It's a Mommy & Me class, so it was really fun! He climbed into this circle and laid down so I couldn't get him out!
He Loves to hang! He does it on our swing set, so he already knew what to do here!

They were supposed to summersault down this wedge....he would NOT bend forward, so he ran down it instead!

I can't belive he is already 18 months old! Time flies! He is such an awesome, funny kid, Love you Zachary!

Duck Creek

Brady and Colin found logs, they were so strong, they carried them back to the cabin to throw them around.

Adult game playing, and yes I am sure Marcus is making that face on purpose!!

The Chicken Squakers, Super Grandma Cusick brought a craft for the kids, these things really sound like chickens! We made them when I was little with grandma, and now she has made then with my kids too, she is the BEST! (courtney helped too!!)

The boys caught 5 horney toads, all tiny, and yes I brougth them all home! I, who refuses any pets, now have these things, as well as crickets in my house. I have yet to touch them. Brady put one in the fish bowl last night, he thought he had killed it and was so happy when he realized it was not dead!
Jeff caught this fish!!! It was huge! We let it go, but not until I drove back to the cabin for a camera! When he first jerked the pole the fish pulled so hard that his reel broke off the fishing pole. So with Heidi holding the pole Jeff backed up and reeled as fast as he could, Colin and I ran to get the net, adn Marcus grabbed the thing when it came out of the water! We were all very excited, clapping and making fools of oueselves! It was pretty fun.

The two smallest Cusick's, Cody and Krew. The are about 2 months apart, and both such sweet good babies!
My Family, I LOVE these BOYS! btw, the hike was very short, as the BYU vs. OU game was on in 10 minutes.... Even on vacation Jeff can't miss a game....needless to say after the BYU win he was a very 'happy camper'!!
The Cusick family (now just my parents kids) had our first official family reunion last weekend. We went to a cabin in Duck Creek, above Cedar City. We had such a great time, forget about all the mice in the ceiling, and the not sleeping because we have too many babies, it was a blast!

My Boys

Brady has a new hobby, he likes to draw pictures of himself! They both laid on this paper to be traced, then colored in their own faces, etc. It's pretty funny to see where Brady puts eyes and noses, he does a pretty good job!
Zach loves the garbage.... he'll take food, paper dishes, whatever, out of it. This is the go-gurt box. He dug it out and thought it looked like a cool hat! He was so proud of himself!

Brady is our fish baby, here he is in goggles looking up at me! I asked him lask week what he was going to do as a talent for our family reunion. "oh, just my sick moves", he followed that up with a short break dance....pretty funny kid!

Utah Trip

Went to Utah for my ten year reunion, had alot of fun with Family!
Herriman has a lake....kind of....a retention pond you can swim in. It is so fun. We went with Sorenson's (and my sis!) the kids had a blast.
Courtney and her two babies
Colby & Beaners
On the way home we stopped at Thanks Giving Point. Their petting zoo is the best, there were 2 baby cows and a baby pony. Brady loved the ponies, but was terrified of the bigger horses! Zach wanted to be in the pens with all of the animals.

Fish Lake

My family reunion every year is in Fish LakeUT, we love it! This year we bought a tent trailer, which was awesome, except that we had two leaks in the roof. We used Costco diapers and duct tape to fix it, worked like a jem!
My boys waiting out the rain!

Brady went fishing for the first time, they went from 7 am - noon! He caught the bigger of the two fish, but would not touch it.... "This fish has teeth, mom!" this was as close as he'd get to it! But he loved watching it be gutted, sick! We kept it in foil in the garage freezer for weeks, he'd show it to everyone who came over.

Here we all are on our boat ride. Brady drove the boat, and Zach leaned over the edge, a little too scary for me, it was a short ride.

Zach's famous 'Mad Face'. He would yell, "mama!" and do the face, but as soon as I looked at him he'd laugh so hard the face was ruined!
We had so much fun. I didn't really see Brady all week, he played with friends at our camp site, and cousins at the motels. (he learned to say, "I hate you!" which was the only down side!)
Jeff fished, and I sat around with cousins all week, nothing better.
