The things kids do...

I was looking for my brush and found it with my scrapbooking scissors..thanks to Brooklyn:)
Then I was looking for Brooklyn's new shoes and when I went into the bathroom I found her trying to turn the diaper champ and throw her shoes away...hmmm I wonder how many toys she has thrown away. Brooklyn is so funny and keeps us extremely entertained.

Dobson Ranch Party
My grandparents live in Dobson Ranch and they invited us to Dobson Ranch's 35 Anniversary. They had a bouncy, a fun bus that had gymnastic stuff to play on for kids,rock climbing and it was lots of fun. Mariyah had fun bouncing, but as you can see from the pic Brooklyn wasn't quite sure about it:) I got Mariyah a snow cone and at first she wasnt going to share, but as you can see Brooklyn finally got her hands in the snow cone.

Since we don't have Disneyland in Arizona we have this amusement park. Mariyah's friend had her birthday party here and we had so much fun!!!! Their were so many fun rides and I was amazed at all the fast rides that Mariyah went on too(she must take after her mom:) since I LOVE fast rides! Some of the rides we went on was the Log ride, the desert storm(the biggest roller coaster they have), the free fall(you really feel like you are going to fall from the sky. They even had a smaller free fall for kids that Ry went on. Overall it was a fun and enjoyable day getting tossed around with all the rides and getting whiplash:)

Biosphere 2
On Saturday we went to the biosphere. The biosphere was originally built in 1989 and is over 7,200,000 cubic feet of sealed glass and 6,500 windows. It is sealed by a 500-ton welded stainless steel liner. They built it to do research and in fact for 2 years 4 men and 4 women lived in the biosphere. They had to grow their own food, and got their meat from the animals that lived there. They were basically in isolation for 2 years straight.
In the biosphere there is an
Ecosystems under the glass
There is
Ocean with coral reef
Mangrove wetlands
Tropical rainforest
Savannah grassland
Fog desert
It was a fun experience to go through it and see how it was designed, how the people lived there and it really is was incredible. When I was in 6th grade the people actually lived in the biosphere at the time when we took a field trip to see it. NO one was able to go in the biosphere because the people lived inside. Now they give tours and it is incredible. You can click on any of the pictures to enlarge:)

These are picture's of inside the biosphere

This is a huge air conditioning unit in the biosphere and it was nice and cold...it felt like we were going to get blown away:) Click to enlarge and look at how funny Brooklyn's face is.

Joshua went to Vegas for business and he brought back this shirt for Brooklyn. When I saw the shirt I kept laughing and it cracks me up!! What's sad is that she is happy and yet she has no idea what the shirt says. What do you think about it?

Beauty and Nail Time!!!!
So we bought Mariyah this little vanity set and it came with press on nails (I remember wearing these...do you?) and Ry LOVED putting them on her nails. Now she wants me to buy more since Brooklyn decided that she was going to chew on a few of the nails:). Mariyah also loves to color and draw pictures and as you can see she decided that it would be a little more fun to color herself. Oh the cute things children do to make our days so much more fun:)
