Skyler is so good with helping me out with the girls. He helps bathe them and fixes Mckenzie's hair. He is so great with making sure that I am not feeling overwhelmed in trying to get everything done. We love him and he is such a great dad! We went to Scera pool in Orem with my cousing Danielle and her family. Her baby girl Afton is just a month older than Kaylee. It was funny cause we always seemed to be nursing at the same time so we had to take a picture to remember that, that is what we did for most of the time while we were there. We had a fun time. Mckenzie and Ryker loved it. We drove 16 hours in the car to California. We stopped in Vegas to have a little break and Mckenzie found the Carosel. She had to ride it twice. She named her horse "Skyler" !
We started our fun vacation by flying to Las Vegas where my parents met us. They drove our car from Fresno to Utah and took Mckenzie home with them to Utah. We stayed the night in Vegas and shopped the next day. We flew to Chicago and stayed with Casey and Emily. Funny, they live in the apt. right next to the one that we lived in 2 years ago. It was fun to be back and go to all of our favorite places to eat in Chicago. We went to the Taste of Chicago, which was amazing. The food was great. I am in love with Chicago style pizza, the crust is to die for. It makes Me-&-Ed's pizza taste like poo...j/k Skyler defends Me-&-Ed's with his life. Anyways we just took it easy. Skyler played tennis every morning with Casey and we went to the pool. We did lots of shopping @ the Oakbrook mall...using all of my gift cards I got for my b-day. It went by too fast, there is just something about Chicago that I love. It was a great trip. Then we were off to Utah!
We had so much fun this 4th of July. My parents and Alyssa were in town for the blessing, so they got to spend the holiday with us. We went swimming and had lunch @ Copper River country club (our favorite place to go swimming) and after we got ready and went over to Skyler's parents house for Homemade Strawberry Icecream (the best you have ever tasted). And of course Steve got a whole bunch of fireworks and the Parker family came over and we all ate out icecream and watched the fireworks. It was a really fun night! LET FREEDOM RING!

This past Sunday we blessed Kaylee in our ward. It was such a great day. I was so happy all day long to be with all of my family on my side and on Skylers. Skyler gave the most wonderful blessing of course. Kayllee was blessed in the same dress that Mckenzie was. After church we had a little luncheon @ Skyler's parents house with family. It was a really special day. I am so grateful to my Heavenly Father for my precious little family!
Let's Just say we had a really fun day..Especially the Grandma's as you can see in their picture. Skyler's grandpa also claimed he was taller than Skyler so we had to take a picture to prove it to him. The top picture shows 4 generations of the Cleveland family. Starting with Bob, Steve, Skyler, & Kaylee.
Everyday the baby is changing. It's amazing how fast they grow. My family came into town for the baby's blessing and we have had so much fun, hanging out and doing things around Fresno. They are going to take Mckenzie home with them for 5 days while Skyler, the baby and I go to Chicago. Then we will pick Mckenzie up in Utah and hang there for awhile and then drive home. We are in for a fun vacation!
I just turned 25 on the 25th of June, and that will never happen again, so Skyler decided to base the whole day on the #25. When I woke up in the morning he and Mckenzie made 25 cupcakes and shaped then into the #25. Then He gave me 25 red roses in a vase. In the flowers were some rolled up 25 dollar bills, and gift cards for $25 to all of my favorite stores, so I can go shopping to all of my favorite stores when we go to Chicago. It was such a fun day. Later that night we had a girls night out @ B.J.'s Resteraunt with some of my friends. It was a fun day! Thanks, Skyler & Mckenzie
