Father's Day Pics

A couple weeks ago we went back to Phoenix so that Nathan could go on his scuba trip with his Priest's Quorum (more on that later).  The first few days we stayed with the Simpsons, then I went and stayed with Kristie while Nathan went to CA, then when he got back we went and stayed with Andrea and Paul for a few nights.  It was a lot of moving around but it was super fun and we are so grateful we have such great family and friends who are willing to put up with us for so long!  While at Kristie's my mom called us up and asked if we would try and get some pictures of the kids for my dad for Father's Day.  We did this last year too and it didn't go so well, especially since Mia and Violet were blobs then.  This time was still pretty difficult but we managed to get a few cute shots.  Taking pictures of 4 kids under 4 is never very easy, I guess.  They had fun together, that's the most important thing, right? :)

He loves his baby sister...the best part is Violet is almost always ok with letting Sawyer guide her somewhere.  So I can have him run and bring her back to me if I need to.  Usually.

Busted out a bubble machine for round 2...they LOVED it.  (can you spot Violet behind Mia?)

Everytime we asked the boys to hold their sisters' hands and walk towards us, they immediately linked in a circle and started playing ring around the rosies. 
I seriously can't get over this picture.  Hilarious.

Ok so he doesn't always love her....
gearing up for the push

Man down!

And lastly, a few instagrams from the scottsdale quarter splash pad.  Good times...
