And Counting

Paul, That was fast. I wanted to remind you of some of the things we've done since that great day 10 years ago. We've been to countless places including, Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina, Washington, New York, Massachusettes, Connecticut, Korea, Texas, Louisiana, Georgia, Florida, Pennslyania, and Utah. We've completed 10 years of school (you 7, me 3). We've owned 3 homes, moved 6 times (that's a lot of boxes), eaten out A LOT!! Survived one major hurricane, enjoyed the snow, enjoyed no snow, lived by the poolside, and wished the a/c would stop breaking. Owned two used ond one new car. Wished I would stop wrecking the car! We've worked all over the church, in YM, YW, Primary, Nursery, ward clerk, and visited at least five temples. We watched your Dad and my Dad retire from their jobs, had five nieces and nephews born.We've held 2 of the world's most beautiful children all night long, bought bikes, trikes, basketballs, roller blades, skateboards, scooters, dump trucks, and a lot of other stuff. We've worked hard, been tired, made so many bottles, changed diapers, gotten rid of two binkys and one pair of training wheels. We've gained weight, lost weight, run faster than we thought possible, and walked slower that necessary. There's one thing that is certain, through all of this, there's nothing I would take back or change. We're meant for each other and I love you!!!!

Happy Birthday T!

Bug rode down the playground pole, giving himself the inevitable pole burn...when he didn't get up right away, T ran over and plopped down.
Sitting on the end too far back. This could happen to anyone, but always to T!

A true foodie. T will eat just about anything as long as it has dip, or some kind of filling. At breakfast yesterday, he dipped his pancake in ketchup. He'll try anything once so look out world!


The month of June is filled with a lot of good things, friends & family birthdays, anniversaries, Father's Day and most importantly T's birthday! Today he will be TWO! I know, breathe, it's ridiculous that time has flown by. T is unconcerned about his birthday. I guess we've spent a little less time on the hype than we did with Bug. We'll celebrate by visiting a nearby train depot on Saturday and having cake later on. It's rumored to be a basketball cake as we are combining the many favorites of T. Oh, how we love T! He is a funny boy, with a serious side. It's hard to say exactly what kind of personality he has except that he is 100% boy. He'll destroy anything in his path. If it's on the ground he'll eat it, if it's laying around, he'll play with it or break it, if it's some kind of clever wall border in the preschool, he'll pull it down, and if it's his brother's, he'll take it. And then he'll look at you like YOU are the crazy one! He brings a great deal of joy into our lives and today we wish him a very Happy Birthday.

We LOVE Summer!








And we spend it all at the pool. Hope you're having as much fun!
Other than that -- a quick reminder to self, lifestyle editing. GET IT DONE!
AND I will be investing in one of those steam mops -- if you have a recommendation, now would be a good time to shout it out!
