Disney Land is the best!

A while ago we got to go to Disney Land on a girl's trip. It was Kylie's first time and she was so excited. We met up with Marcus and Lindsay on their honeymoon, at the Bengal BBQ, on our first day. It is one of our favorite places to eat at.

Kylie and London dressed up as Tinker Bell the first day. Kylie's favorite rides were Splash and Space Mountain. I couldn't believe she was so wild and crazy! She is just like her Grammy and mom. We weathered the rain in our ponchos and on the last day we ran from ride to ride.

We said hello to McQueen and Mater for Dash. Kylie dressed up as the Little Mermaid that day.

Kylie had to have a turkey leg. It only cost me an arm and a leg to buy it.

General Conference

General Conference was wonderful again! We spent the weekend up at my parents cabin listening to all of the conference sessions. I always look forward to hearing what our prophet and apostles have to say to us.
The two biggest themes that stuck out to me were number one, we live in uncertain times, but there is hope in the future and we can still find joy and happiness as we have faith.
The second theme, for me, was we need to do better at teaching our families the gospel. The home is where this needs to be done. We need to teach our children with purpose and focus and make sure the Savior is spoken of often in our homes. Jesus Christ needs to be the reason that we do the things we do in our lives. I was so grateful for all of the talks that focused on this, and I am going to work at being a better teacher and not just let life happen. I hope you enjoyed listening to conference too. If you missed some of it you can go to I like to download the talks on my I-pod and listen to them over the next 6 months.

This is a picture of the Nauvoo temple. It reminds me of family. Marc's mom is serving a mission in Nauvoo right now. I am so grateful that we can be together for eternity because of the ordinances performed in temples!

He has arrived (only 10 months ago)!

Yes we did have a boy! Zack is ten months old now. He is such a joy in our lives. He has the sweetest smile that lights up his whole face. Kylie loves him, just like I knew she would, but she still wants a sister. She is a little mother and always wants to hold him.

This picture is in Cabo. One of our favorite places to go when it is cold. Zack loved the pool.

Don't you just want to squeeze those cute cheeks!

It's a Boy!

I know I have disappeared from the blogging world for a while. I will just blame this little guy! I was really sick for a few months, and then I was really tired (I still am), so I had to get a daily nap in. Anyway, we are expecting a little boy! We are so excited! Dash is going to have a "baby brodder." Kylie cried when she found out, because she wanted a sister. But I am sure she will love being his little mother when he gets here. The only problem now is coming up with a name! I have a hard time with boys names. Any suggestions?

Where Have We Been All Summer?

I did not take much time for blogging in the summer, so I thought I would do a little catch up. We had a great summer! I think summer time is my favorite. There are so many fun things to do. Our clubhouse and pool were finished in May, so we spent a lot of time at the pool. This is a picture of Marc's family swimming. Everyone got together for the 4th of July. Our family overtook the pool, and everyone had a lot of fun!

Dash and his cousin, Cache, love to swim and eat chips at the pool. They aren't afraid of the water!

Marc's Diet

We had a weight loss competition in Marc's family to get ready for Lake Powell. This is how Marc started off his diet- a big chocolate milk shake. He didn't win, but he still lost weight!

This was the first dessert to kick off the Lake Powell feast. We all dug in with our spoons to eat this ice cream sundae out of the "pig trough."

All ten of the McCann siblings came on our trip to Lake Powell! We had a big celebration before Andrea leaves on her mission. Our talent show was dedicated to her this year.

Marc entertained us by jumping, flipping, and diving off the houseboat.

This is my favorite thing to do at Lake Powell! Water rocket wars! It gets pretty crazy!

One of the highlights of the trip was reading books from the Twilight series. Even Marc's brothers couldn't resist reading them! (Not really. It was part of their skit for the talent show.)

Marc and I celebrated our 6 year anniversary while we were in Lake Powell. It was a lot of fun! We even had fireworks to celebrate.

The Perfect Day- 6 Years Ago!

This is our first ripe tomato! It was my first ever attempt at growing a garden. All we had were tomatoes on our balcony, but the kids loved to water them. They tried eating the tomatoes, but they didn't like them.

We celebrated Dash's 2nd birthday! Grandma Jackie bought him a shaggy dog cake.
He loved blowing out the candles! He did it several times before we finished singing.
We also celebrated with his cousin, London. They share the same birthday! It was her first birthday this year.
She dug into her cake, and then was nice enough to let Dash join in. But she didn't want to share her new little bike that Grandma bought her. She kept pulling the other kids off of it.
What a cute little angel, or at least he was then! Now the terrible twos have kicked in. He's learned to climb out of his crib and he loves to throw tantrums, but we still love him.

This is Kylie's favorite meal. Cheese tortillas, chips, salsa, sour cream, and green sauce! She always wants to eat it down stairs.

We went camping and bought Kylie a princess fishing pole, so she could go fishing with her dad. Kylie caught her first fish! She was so excited, but holding it wasn't her favorite part.

Kylie started preschool! She has wanted to go for over a year, because her friends went to school. This is a picture of her after her first day. She loves her teacher Miss Ann!

Stadium of Fire

Kylie was so excited to see Mylie Cyrus perform at the Stadium of Fire. When we told her we were going she yelled in excitement. We watch the Disney show Hannah Montana all of the time, and we listen to her music almost every time we are in the car. Even Dash loves her. He calls her Han Tanna.

Kylie said, "Hannah Montana is going to sing and give us toys." Hannah didn't give her any toys, but when we got there Grandma Jackie had a Hannah bag with some treats inside. Kylie screamed again, because she was so excited.

Kylie begged for popcorn, so we finally gave in. She enjoyed eating her popcorn and watching the fireworks. The whole show was amazing! It reminded me of how grateful I am to live in America. We are so blessed!

She is wearing a Hannah Montana dress from Walmart. Don't take your kids shopping at this age. They want everything!

Chef's Table

For Andrea's birthday present we took her to Chef's Table. She is leaving on a mission to Nauvoo in the fall, so we decided we would do something extra special. It is her favorite restaurant. She took Marc and I there when each of us graduated. It was so much fun to dress up and go out for a nice dinner. The atmosphere was great with a beautiful view of BYU and the Provo temple, and the food was amazing. Everything we ordered was delicious. The Tuscan tomato soup is my favorite. I wish I could eat like that everyday!
