Happy Fall!!!

 So my mom celebrated her 29th birthday this fall (your welcome mom even though you have a 37 year old son I still thought I would do that for you.)! We all suprised her by making her think just Gregg,Shakobe, and I were taking her to dinner in Logan, but when she opened her front door to leave the whole family was on her front lawn and began singing Happy Birthday to her. It was a great moment!! Love u mom!!!
 At the party Kanyon and Saylor asked me if they could help me make my jello salad. This is how they helped me! LOL I would of done the same because I love cool whip!!
 Gregg and Daxton decided to turn the birthday dinner into them having a hamburger eating contest. They both ate about 5 then gregg left the room, and when he did so Daxton hurried and put the rest of the burgers on his plate in hopes to say he had won. He underestimated Gregg because when he returned he rushed over and yanked the burgers from Daxton's hands and shoved them in his mouth! Excellent work boys!!!
 Half way through Daxton looks like he may have regretted his decision of taking Gregg on. LOL!!!
 Shakobe giving his grandpa hugs. He is such a big hugger and even bigger grandpa's boy!!!
 Rylie had a tea party that we were very lucky to participate in. She gave all of us wands and Gregg got a special princess hat! Although during the party he kept referring to himself as Mrs. Nezbit (from toy story.), Bryson was Mrs. Doubtfire, and Gregg named me Princess Farts The Bed which he is still in hott water over. He loves to tease me about people passing gas because Im a firm believer that girls just don't do that (with a few minor acceptions which will remain unnamed...Rylie!JK)

 My nerdy sisters in there Arby's kids meal glasses. They were worried I would put it on my blog. TAH DAH!!! It makes me happy every time I see it so I had to post it. You're still the prettiest mom's around!!

Gregg and Shakobe and Pumpkin Walk 2012

 Shakobe loved the pumpkin walk. He hated when we tried to take pictures because that meant not looking at the pumpkins as you can tell he is not taking his eyes off of them.
 Me and kobes at the relay for life display. Me and him did the relay together this last summer so it was special for us!!
 At the Harry Potter display. That and the Hunger Games one were the best of all!!!!
 Our cute little fam at Pumpkin Walk 2012. So much fun!!!!

My Chunker Boo!!!

 Well i decided it was time to do a little catching up on our blog. Our little Rigby family has been really busy but not busy enough to forget how to have a lot of fun. Here are just a few things my little munchkin has been up to these days.....

 Shakobe has discovered his love for driving. As soon as his Dad gets home from work he is taking one of our hands and leading us to the door. What used to be an obsession with just outside has now turned to driving Daddy's big truck which only his little fingers can be on the steering wheel and he will let you know of that rule the very first chance he gets. He also pushes all the buttons in the truck such as the blinker, hazard lights, brights, heater, and radio. In this particular picture he turned the radio to the spanish station and turned the volume to full blast. We all were rockin out to it!!!
 Daddy Got him his first SIX INCH sandwhich from subway and he could not eat it fast enough if you can believe it. May I remind you all my little boy is not even a year and a half yet so it blows my mind what a good eater he his. We also discovered he likes green peppers that day. He does not get his taste buds from his mother. Grows more and more like his Daddy and I could not be more proud.
 We went with grandma and grandpa Yates to a wedding reception where they had a dance and shakobe went wild on the dance floor. When he decides to stop being shy he gets dance fever and keeps going even after the music has stopped. LOL.
 Our boy loves to go visit great grandpa and grandma Rigby, and Grandpa and Grandma Rigby where he can feed and ride the horses. (though he does not understand why we wont let him go into the carrel and play with the horses like they were kitties or puppies.) We have only found two things that scare Shakobe  and those are when his Dad coughs, and the long springy door stoppers. That is a very scarey monster he wants out of our house! He wont even go into our downstairs bathroom cuz he knows one is in there and he would be way too close to it.
 My little helper always helps me get the laundry out of the dryer until one day he dropped his bouncy ball inside and decided it was a pretty cool hang out spot for him and his toys. Kynlee was there and knew he was up to no good so she just waved good bye to him as he jumped up and down inside the dryer so proud of what he had accomplished.
Shakobe and his dad always have some sort of shenanagins in the works and as I was doing some work at kinkos one night I started to hear laughter from both of them. I looked over to see Shakobe biting Gregg's face so hard that his whole body was shaking and they both thought it was so funny. Cant trust these two alone they are sure to get themselves into trouble.

 They do eventually settle down and take naps together which is pretty much the most adorable thing in the universe.

 Gregg, Shakobe, my mom, and I went and toured the Brigham city Temple which was gorgeous Im so happy my sister Jamie gave us her tickets so we could go. Shakobe pointed to a giant chandelier in one of the rooms and continuousely belted out "OOOOOOOOOOH, OOOOOOOH, OOOOOH." It was an amazing experience for our little family.
Its that time of year again. Time for the Boys of Fall. So opening night of the football season my boys jerseyed up and showed everyone their Patriot pride. Even though Shakobe is also a Ravens fan for his mommy of course. Just need to get him a Ray Lewis jersey since he is already following in the foot steps to be as big as Ray number 52.
Showing off the numbers on there backs representing there biggest fans. Such an awesome picture!!!
 We got new family pictures taken this last sunday. great grandma rigby thought it was so funny to  watch all the funny faces everyone was pulling to make Shakobe smile. Ashlee was playing peek a boo with him and instead of laughing like he usually does he started to play peek a boo back at her. It was so hilarious I cant wait to see how they turned out. Perfect as usual!!!!
Gregg and his sisters threw a suprise Anniversary party for there parents which turned out so amazing. Im sure lucky to be surrounded by such wonderful people. Happy Fall Everyone!!!!

What June Brought us!!

So I am finally catching up on some of the things we have done this summer. I realized it is like major picture overload so Im cutting down to what we did through the month of June. Tonz of fun I love love love summer!
 My brother Josh was able to come and visit for a few days and we all had a BBQ together. We had alot of fun and Gregg and the boys played for hours at the park. All the kids love Gregg so much I feel pretty lucky. Even though to them Im just the lady to ask if they cant see Gregg right away. They figure I can lead them to him. lol.
 Gregg celebrated another birthday this June. 29 if you can believe. I love my hubby so much he is the best husband and Daddy anybody could ever ask for.
We have great neighbors that have lead us on some great hikes we have been able to go on together. And a extra plus our little man got to go feed the ducks at first dam which he absolutely loved. even without his swimgear on he was heading through the water to go get him some ducks. Good thing daddy had a tight hold of him.
Shakobe and I gave Gregg the choice to go away for the weekend wherever he wanted. He chose to go see the Herd kids and head up to Yellowstone for a few days. We decided to just pick up the kids and take them with us. So glad we did it made the trip that much more memorable.
 Gregg and the kids at the 3 Bear restaraunt where we had breakfast every morning!
 Our condo we stayed in was next door to the Grizzly discovery center so every morning we went over to check out the bears and wolves. And had the kids be apart of the Rangers lessons they do for children about  bears. They loved it and talked about it the whole trip the boys were so proud they new how to defend themselves from bears. Saylor just wondered where Yogi bear was since we had his friend "Boo Boo" (shakobe) in our group.
 Saylor and Kanyon in one of the bear traps. They look pretty happy to be caught.
 On the famous big bear couch at the Grizzly center!
 At one of the many beautiful waterfalls in Yellowstone!
 Shakobe trying to escape from his stroller. I know Grandmas your probably holding your breath looking at our little daredevil. There is not much this kid is afraid of. Which frightens his mommy!
 Gregg is the perfect guide to have on a yellowstone trip he knows alot of history behind the places there and the kids were more interested in it from what they learned. Here at some paint and mud pots.
 Had a yummy picnic in Mammoth! The kids were all happy to be out of the car and eat if you cant tell. At that picnic we named all the animals we had seen that day and saylor said at the end, "But we have not seen any Elephants. (sad face)" Lol.. And thats after Dax told us that he was sure he had just seen either a buffalo or a kangaroo he could not tell. Ha Ha. How exotic that place is getting.
 Everyone at the volcano museum. One of our favorite stops.
 Upper/lower falls. I dont think I took a single breath the whole way down to it and I made everyone hold hands. Look closely and you see my favorite people standing at the top of this giant waterfall.
 We stopped at this really cool Indian battle field. Me and gregg both being very into native american history we were very impressed with this place.
 Look at the cousins being so good to shakobe that was getting very irratable being out in the hot sun all day.  My boy hates to be hot just like his Daddy. Thanks Herd cousins your the best.
 My chunk of cheese and gregg at Opal Pool. We have made this a mandatory stop every year cause Opal is the name of Greggs great grandma. Memories built and still being made from an amazing family.
 The Old Faithful visitor center has a amazing science experiment room for kids. All the kids are standing next to the man made gyser. That was a amazing place to take the kids.
All the boys at Old Faithfull!

 Shakobe and Old Faithful are about to let off some serious steam.
The boys inside the big theatre inside Old Fatihful visitor center!
 YaY! After sitting in the heat waiting for Old Faithful to go off we decided to cool off with some ice cream. Yum Yum!
Inside Old Faithful Inn. Here we found pictures and info about who we believe to be ancestors from my moms side of the family. Pretty awesome!

 Everyone at the Petrified tree!

 Me and shakobe watching a Black Bear that was wandering around right close to our car. Shakobe was also very interested in the Rangers bear mase he was holding of course.

On our way home from Yellowstone! Had to share this picture of Shakobe, Saylor, and Kanyon having so much fun playing togerther. So special. We had such an amazing trip together i will never forget it. Im in the process of making a book about it and all the funny things the kids did and said during it. Me and Gregg literally started writing them all down cuz we loved it so much. Thanks to another amazing family trip. Can not wait for the next one. 


As you can tell me and Gregg dressed up as bacon and eggs. ha ha. It was the first time in years either of us dressed up and Im so happy my husband was such a good sport about it. We spent halloween night at my sisters house watching my all time favorite halloween movie Hocus Pocus.
Me and my niece and nephew on halloween night. Rylie was a "cute witch" as she would say and my nephew was Edward. The man of all our dreams. It was a fun night.
We or should I say I dressed up our kitty for halloween. He absolutely hated it but put up with it for about five minutes to make me happy.


So I had to show everyone this picture of our family on the Atlantis rollercoaster at sea world. The looks on everyones faces is priceless. Lol, especially my sisters and myself.
