Birthdays weekend

Elena and dad's birthdays are 2 days apart so we usually have a pretty busy weekend celebrating both of them. Today we did Elena's birthday, which is actually Sunday, by going BOATING! It was actually a really nice memorial weekend and we were able to take the boat out and do..... some fun in the sun! I got a little too much sun, well I got REALLY burnt. I don't know what I was thinking going out for the first time with pasty skin.
Kole enjoyed watching and eating grapes, and us chillens enjoyed wake boarding in the FREEZING lake.

The day before we celebrated dad's birthday by going shooting. The boys all really enjoyed it, but us girls usually only shot a couple times and then the noise just gets too much for our ears, but it was still fun to go and watch who actually hit the clay pigeon.

Happy Birthday Elena!
Happy birthday Daddio!!!

Today is this sweet boys 4th birthday
(this is the only young pic I could find of him on my comp 1.5 yrs) Today he is still a big boy and growing more and more each time I see him. He is just full of energy and wants to be just like his dad. He also says the funniest things that we can always get a laugh from. He still loves to play with your hair when he is tired or sick.
I love my Grant man so much Happy Birthday Buddy!

One year ago today.....

We got married and had the best time doing it! Josh took me out Saturday night for our anniversary. We went to the temple in the morning , and then the melting pot for dinner. We had never been there and both were pretty excited to experience it. Definitely not what I was expecting, but it was fun and romantic. we thought it was going to be all fondue, not make your own dinner. Then we walked a few more blocks downtown to go see a movie , but none were playing. So we called up the peeps and headed over to Steve and Rachel's house for a game night. And i got a horrible blister on my toe from walking around in my cute, but not practical shoes! Happy Anniversary Baby, I love you and can't believe the year that we had together!

One down.....Eternity to go!

movie night

We went to go see the x-men movie with these cool people, and their wives(not pictures) and some other awesome people we like to hang out with. And a report on the movie, I would say it was pretty good. I had no desire to see the movie or the other x-men movies, but to my surprise it was good.Taylor, Boe Boe and Joshy(best friends)


Josh and I picked up this awesome kid and...... went to Wahooz (boondocks) for the afternoon and.....
He was soooooooooo excited and had so much fun winning all the games and getting the ticket and......

Josh seemed to mesh right in with all the kids there, it was a lot of fun and I found a game that I got addicted to and I.......

won soooooo many tickets. This one game spit out a ton of tickets with no effort on my part except for dropping in the token, it was so much fun. When we were done there were went to eat and headed back to his house and.....

it was a successful day! he was exhausted when he got in the car. Josh and I really enjoyed taking our awesome nephew Grant out to the afternoon and spend time just with him. We are excited for the other little guys to get a little older so we can take them out.

Shower for baby boy

Jill had a baby shower and it was a lot of fun. I was able to chat with peeps I haven't seen in a while. Jill got some really great gifts and had the yummiest food, which isn't a shock.
He has gotten so big in her belly and she looks beautiful. She is a happy pregnant lady who doesn't mind being pregnant. I love her being pregnant and able to watch her grow and feel him in her belly, but I'm also ready for a new baby to be around. I love the grunts and the new baby smell. We are all awaiting his arrival in about 3 weeks or so.

I love him so much and he's not even here yet!
