We put in a pool!

On Saturday Jack and I busted out the $5 inflatable pool we got for Charlie and it was the best thing that has ever happened to the kid! We had so much stinkin' fun in that teeny tiny pool...and yes I said WE! All 3 of us were in it and splashing around:) We were glad none of our neighbors saw us:) Charlie played in there for a good 2 hours when I finally had to drag him out so we could all have lunch...he was so sad:( But it seems the days keep getting hotter so that little pool will get good use this summer!

Catch up time again!

We have been so busy with all kinds of fun things this last couple weeks that I have not had time to do all the posts that I wanted to so I will combine a few today and get to more later this week:) These first pictures are of Jacks "MAN" trip to Boulder for the annual fishing trip. There are some of Jack then my little brother. They all had so much fun!

And now FATHERS DAY! We had a really nice Fathers Day spent with family and it was so nice. We went to church which was great, Dad and Charlie took a nap together...VERY important, then we drove down to my parents house and had dinner with my family with cousins, aunts, and they even picked up my sweet Grandpa from the rest home! I am so lucky so have such an amazing husband! He is the best Dad to our little Charlie and he lights up every time he sees his Dad:) I am also very grateful to have the most amazing Father! He is so thoughtful, kind, loving, and one of the most selfless people I know! Love you both so much Happy Fathers Day!

Orem Summerfest

Last weekend Jack went with my Dad, Brother, and all their guy friends to Boulder Mountain for the annual "Manly" fishing trip. So i decided to spend the weekend with my wonderful Mom and Sister Nat. We went to the Orem Summerfest with the kids and we had a blast! We went on some fun rides, ate cotton candy, entered Charlie in the baby contest, and missed all the rain:) Here are some fun pictures that my sister just sent to me, I wish I had some of my Mom and Nat. Thanks Mom and Nat for spending so much time with us! I know we only live an hour away but I miss you guys like crazy so thanks for the fun-filled weekend!
Charlie was taking his nap during this ride:)

Here is Abbie, Ellie, and Kaylie...don't I have the cutest niece's ever!

My Mom gave me money to test my huge muscles and win a cute bear for Charlie:)

This slide went so much faster than I expected and I might have let a bad word slip out...oops!

Charlie is 10 months old now and WALKING! He has been crawling since 5 months and standing up and walking around furniture for ever now so I'm actually surprised it took him this long, but he is now a walkin' fool! He is so stinkin' cute I can hardly stand it:) Here is a video of him, it was in the morning so he is still in his jammies and has bed head, but still so cute! (sorry it's so dark)

A few posts all in one:)

So I have been really busy lately so I have not gotten around to making some fun posts so I decided to combine them all into one big one so get ready to read and look at some cute pictures! The first one here is of my little angels first shiner! He was playing in his room and pulled his humidifier on top of himself and it was full of water! He was soaking wet and had a huge black eye that was bleeding as well...so SAD! I thought I was going to pass out with how fast it went purple and the blood didn't help! He cried for about 30 seconds and was wanting to go play again...he is one TOUGH kid!

On Friday night my WONDERFUL parents came up to babysit Charlie while Jack and I went to the Herriman Rodeo with my brother Bret and his cute wife Ash. We had such a good time and appreciate Jack's work for giving us the free tickets:)

And the past 3 days I have been doing some major yard work. We have a huge yard and with all the rain lately our weeds have taken over and we have been putting off pulling them. On Monday I finally got brave and started in the front...5 HOURS later it was complete!! Yesterday I worked on the back around our raised beds where we are growing our own veggies this year and 3 HOURS later I was only half way done! My arms hurt so bad that I can hardly pick up my child! The garbage can you see was completely empty when I started and I still have two piles and half the yard left! I know your jealous...most people can't produce weeds like us, we all have our talents:) Anyway the yard looks great now and our veggies are growing wonderfully! We had our first salad last night with our lettuce and it was probably the best salad I have ever had! I told Jack that I am an official farmer now. I told him to go ahead and tell people that I take care of our child and work the land:) (I know I am so lame, but I am proud of our little garden:))
