On most nights you can find us at either Five Star Athletics (the cheer club) or Tumbleweeds (gymnastics). Nikki feels right at home at either place. This is her taking a little snooze in her Five Star gear at Tumbleweeds!

Brookie loves to plan little parties for our family. It is always a fun time. The party usually has a theme and a surprise activity! I hope she wants to plan parties for our family for a long time. She is a sweet girl and we all love her and her parties!
|Entering with their invites.|
|This particular party was "invite only". Look at all these lucky kids who received invitations.|
|It isn't a party without snacks!|
|The party ended with a movie and sleepout in the living room!|

Brent and I were in Cancun and the girls were at Woodward and Braden and Nikki were staying with Nana and Grandpa. They took Braden to his ninja graduation. He scored ANOTHER perfect score (16) and advanced to a orange belt. Thank Bob for taking a picture for me!

|Dropping them off.|
|Jessie roomed with her friends Devy and Stephanie and Brookie roomed with her friends Tenielle and Gracie.|
|Jessie stayed in cabin 5B|
|Brookie was right next door in cabin 5A|
|Tenielle, Gracie and Brookie...Brookie ended up sleeping with either Tenielle or Gracie every night.|
|On the ride home....tired girls.|
So both Brookie and Jessie have competed in and won LOTS of pageants. They each started doing pageants when they were really little. Now they are both into their different activities that don't leave much time for pageants. But I didn't want Kaylee Nicole to miss out on pageants...at least ONE. So we went to Las Vegas for the Nevada State Cinderella Baby pageant. I was a little nervous because she was 2 1/2 and had never been on a stage. We practiced her pretty feet and walking the x's for about a month before we went and she had that down but you never know when they get up on stage with a light and in front of a crowd. And she did AMAZING! I had worried for nothing! She had so much fun and it was a blast watching her. She wore the same beauty dress that Jessie wore when she won Nevada State Cinderella Tiny Tot and went on to internationals where she won 1st runner up to International Cinderella Tiny Tot. It was fun to see Nikki in the same dress. The weekend was all focused on Kaylee Nicole and it was fun to see her big sisters and brother just dote on her, so proud of their little sister and her very biggest fans! And guess what....SHE WON!! Our lil' Nik Nik is the Nevada State Cinderella Baby!
|We went a day early so we could enjoy some pool time. |
Grandpa bought all the girls their own "fancy" drinks to enjoy by the pool. It was around 100 degrees in Veags. The drinks went fast!
|Sam's Town is our favorite hotel to stay at in Vegas. It has the coolest indoor mezzanine. It has a water and laser light show with lots of cool animals. Braden has loved watching the huge bear for years now.|
This is Braden and me watching the show.
|Aunt Kara met us at the hotel for dinner one night.|
|Jessie ready for cameo girl.|
|Brookie ready for cameo girl.|
As I was packing for Vegas I thought I should enter Jessie and Brookie into cameo girl since we were gonna be there with Nik Nik anyway. So I threw in dresses for them and they did AMAZING! They got up there and owned that stage! They didn't even have time to practice. They are naturals!
If you entered a good luck add you were entered into the Cover Girl contest where they pick the best picture from all the ad's. Kaylee Nicole was 1st runner up for the entire pageant! (Thanks Shelly for all the great pictures and designing the ad.)
|Kaylee Nicole also won the community support award for her ad in the program book.|
|Two tired girls....pageants are hard work! Get lot's of sleep little Nik Nik. The real show starts tomorrow!|
|The morning of the final show was Father's Day so we had a little Fathers Day celebration in our hotel room. |
We LOVE you Daddy!!!
|Very proud big sisters. |
Our three little princesses!

I surprised Brent on our 13th anniversary with a trip to Cancun! We stayed at a Gold Crown all-inclusive resort called the Now Jade. It was so nice and a super relaxing week! We dropped the two older girls off at a summer camp and we flew to Cancun. Brent's parent's stayed with the younger two at home.
We loved it! Happy Anniversary!
