Miss Lucy Elaine Riley

Today we welcomed Lucy Elaine Riley into our family. She was born on my birthday...June 29. It was kind of special because both my mom and my aunt had their first babies, both girls, exactly 20 years apart. I'm the first grandkid and shes the last. I went to Disneyland this morning so I could go get my giftcard and buy the watch I wanted and then I headed to the hospital. She was born at 12:31 in the afternoon and she weighed 6 pounds and was 20 inches long. We love you Lucy and we can't wait to get to know you better! Happy Birthday to the both of us!

Brother and Sister Bonding...

Today was Bradley's fifth grade promotion! We had the same fifth grade teacher...

This was him walking out to take his seat. He looks just so darn happy!

This is Mrs. Cloonan and Bradley. She was by far one of my favorite teachers!

After promotion him and I headed for the Happiest Place on Earth!! Which is also the Busiest Place on Earth as well!

We spent most of the day just hanging out walking around both parks. We didn't ride a whole lot because it was so busy!! Both of us love to people watch though! I was just fun to spend a little one on one time with my little brother. Anymore he acts like hes too good for us!! But when you get him alone...
Doest he just look so darn cute on the merry-go-round!!! haha. He wanted to go. I didn't make him.

We ended the day with innoventions...I see that I am NOT going to be an attractive old lady!!!!

One of my favorite thing in innoventions is the case with all the fat in it!! Talk about motivation! For all those who keep trying to drop the weight and keep losing motivation like me this is for you!!! I'm putting this on my fridge!!

All in all we had a lot of fun! Thanks Brad! And I'm going again on Monday. I'm kind of a Disney-aholic!!

My favorite little baby...

This morning Autumn called and asked if I wanted to go to the mall with her. After the mall we went to Target and then through Del Taco. We only had Wyatt with us since Hunter was playing with the Minor boys. When she went to drop me off back at our apartment Justin and I offered to watch Wyatt for a little while so she could do whatever she wanted kiddo free. He was pretty good, just a little tired. Justin just loves him too. Watching him is the perfect thing for us because even though we love him to pieces it makes us realize that we can wait a little longer to have our own. haha. We get to give him back!!!
