Look how Chunky my baby is getting! He has been such a picky eater until recently and now I feel like he is catching up for the last few months. He is chowing down on baby food and anything he can get his hands on.

Easter egg hunt

I asked Brax to show me his eggs....

The clothes and candy were cool but check out what the Easter bunny dropped off..........DIRT!! A sand box that takes up little space but something the boys will absolutely Love! Pictures of boys in sand to follow.. :)

Tayven with his Easter egg. The outside is just as good apparently.

sOO Close

Tayven is so close to crawling!! He is my busy little guy and I am a little worried of what is to come with crawling but any day now I am sure he will get it! For a while now he has been army crawling but now he will get up and move one knee forward then go back down.. oh so close then it is on the move for Tay.

-Fun around the Camp fire-

Filling Payslie's boots with sand..muha ha
Tay loved the Sand Dunes! He would pick the sand up and throw it back down

This is scary... Jenson behind the wheel and his side kick on his right.

While we were at the Dunes an Apache helicopter flew right over our camp several times. It was really cool and Braxton loved it! This is Uncle Jake on the trailer watching for the helicopter.

It has been a while since we have been camping and it was so fun to go out to the Dunes with the family! We all got along great and had a blast! I must say having a trailer was really nice with the little ones. We played hard and laughed even harder. Thanks for the good times!

Thats Right!!! We did It!!

He has not Graduated yet but our three day potty training went so well and I am so proud of my BIG boy!!! We are still working on telling mom when we need to go but he stays dry and has done so well!!!! I seriously cried the first time he pooped in the toilet. You could tell he was so confused (whether I was excited or sad) but I just was so overwhelmed at how big he is!! I can not believe how well he has gone, I was so stressed about the whole thing. GOOD JOB Brax!!!

4: The BEST Date Ever!!!

I wanted to share my thoughts and feelings about my hot date last night before I forget. I do not write about Ryan and I very often and as you can see I was not able to snatch a picture of the two of us but I am so grateful for our relationship and the time we are able to spend together. Last night Ryan took me on a date. He, as usual did not tell me what we were doing. We started out at our favorite place to eat for dinner La Casita, then we went for a drive. I was not sure where we were going at times as we talked and listened to the radio but we made our way around Utah lake and out to Genola. Along the way we stopped to listen to the spring creekers.(little frogs by the thousands) I seriously felt like a teenage girl again just doing nothing really, riding around with my man holding hands and getting to know each other. Especially now with two busy little boys I find that my time with Ryan is so precious and I love that he makes and plans such fun dates. The whole night he made me feel so special complementing the way my eyes shine and how much he loved everything about me! WOW it does not get better than that. I am so in love with him and I feel like the luckiest girl and not only is he my best friend but the best little daddy. Braxton asked Ryan yesterday what his name was, Ryan replied Daddy. Braxton continued, Why? Ryan then said Because that is what I am! So cute and priceless!
