This is our longest #BehindTheBraids vlog ever! Rylan turned 12 this week, Shaun and Rylan went on a diamond mining expedition, Brooklyn and Bailey went to Drill Team Nationals, and Bailey gets pulled over by a police officer for the first time! Lots happened in this week’s family vlog!


Rylan has been looking forward to her 12th birthday for a while. Not just for the cake and presents, but because she also graduates from the Primary program in our church. As part of her birthday, Shaun decided to take Rylan with him to Crater of Diamonds National Park to mine for diamonds. We also rented her a hotel room for one night, for her and four friends while we slept in the next room. She had a blast!

Our twins, Brooklyn and Bailey, also went to Drill Team Nationals where their dance team not only placed, but they also got to meet and take pictures with so many of you! There were dozens of school participating over the course of three days. They filmed a bunch of it for you.

We started construction on a swimming pool in our new backyard this week, hoping we can get it done before summer since it gets SUPER HOT here in Texas! Daxton and Paisley are so excited; Daxton with the excavation part of it all with a huge tractor in our yard, and Paisley loved watching the crew spray concrete for the pool foundation! They even vlogged themselves explaining what’s going on, and not only is it super cute and adorable, but funny, too! They can’t wait to swim!

Lastly, Bailey gets pulled over by a police officer for the very first time. Why was she pulled over? Did she get a ticket? Whose fault was it? You’ll have to click and watch! Plus, Bailey gives you a tip for future driving!

Also, I love that there are so many more families vlogging, like RomanAtwoodVlogs, Bratayley, the Daily Bumps, ItsJudysLife, etc, on YouTube! Love them all!
