Happy Father's Day and A Lot More

We had a pretty laid back father's day. We gave Brett presents in the morning after his favorite breakfast. Then after church we had a nice family dinner. He deserves a lot more because he is such an amazing father to these two girls. They just absolutely adore him. I look up to him as a parent because he always makes very wise choices and knows how to handle things amazingly when it comes to the girls. We love you babe! Happy Father's Day.

Saturday was a very eventful day for us. Makenna and her friend Tarryn wanted to do a lemonade stand. They went all day long and actually did really well. They started off at Tarryn's house and made about $14 there. Then they moved it to our house later that afternoon and made about $12 more. This is a pretty good idea for a summer job for little kids. With two cute girls standing on the street selling lemonade, you would be crazy not to stop!

On Saturday we also went on a little hike at Beacon Hill (otherwise known as Brett's second home). Kyra missed her hike for girl's camp, so we took her on one. Of course, Brett wanted to bring along his bike and ride around as we hiked. He ditched it for a bit, but it was also fun for him to show off for Kyra.

This is Ky after we hiked up the VERY steep hill to get to the jumps. I swear that hill is almost straight up and down.

On A Sunday Afternoon...

Brett and I went for a walk through River Park Square. It was fun to be able to spend some time together on such a warm beautiful day. Walkking down to the falls is one of our favorite things to do for a date night! Here are a couple pictures of us on our walk.

What A Week!

This has been a very busy week, filled with graduations, end of school, brdial showers, baby showers, and a bbq! I am just glad it is all over an now I can relax. I am so excited for summer to actually get things done around the house. Some goals I have for the summer:

1. Organize and clean out the basement
2. Exercise at least 5 times a week
3. Deep clean every room of the house
4. Try to make my husband dinner, at least 3 times a week
5. Get very tan!
6. Be more focused on my calling at church
7. Get a job by the time school starts

I will have to let you in on the progress of all these goals.

The first graduation we had this past week was Kyra's 6th grade graduation. She is such a smart kid, it just amazes me. She had a perfect report card and got too many awards to even mention. I wish that I could have been half as samrt and cool as her when I was 12. I was unable to attend her graduation...hence, you will only be getting one picture from Brett's phone! WAY TO GO KYRA! I love that girl so much.

The next big event this week...my last day of school! I have been so stressed for the past two weeks trying to get grading done, report cards in, portfolio's made, end of the year parties, awards, the list goes on and on. The end of the year went by so fast, but I am grateful for a break. The last day felt too rushed and I can already tell and I am going to miss my kids a lot! Some of the boys (my class was mostly boys...18) were getting really sad and didn't want to leave. It was a little emotional, but also fun.

Look at how bare my room is in the background

These are the other first grade teachers. I had so much fun with them!

The other graduation that was going on was my brother's high school graduation. Logan is the last kid to graduate in the Cunningham family and we are all so proud of him. He is such a stud and I love him to death! I had to miss Ky's graduation to go to his, so you will get to see a lot more pictures of him than Kyra!

Logan and Aunt Cheryl

What a cutie pie he is!

All the wonderful Cunnigham girls

I didn't get to take any pictures at the bridal shower or baby shower, but I also had a lot of fun at those. Now hopefully things will slow down and I can have a nice, relaxing summer!
