good times

for memorial day weekend we went to island park and stayed in a cabin. it was really fun. we went with brad's siblings, another family and it was at jenn's parents cabin. we went to yellow stone, went 4-wheeling and rode on the boat.
reese is so important in the front seat. we had to stop for a little break and of course he barfed.

reese and daddy sitting on the bear.

on the boat ride. reese was awake for about 5 minutes. then he crashed like the stock market.

brad and i after 4-wheeling. we are soaked with mud and cold water. it started to hail on the way back and i was FREEZING!!!

look at reese in this picture below. he is totally cracking up!

my sweet niece got married on friday may 22nd. we were invited to the temple ceromony and it was lovely. it was so nice to hear the things that the sealer said to them because they really apply to me and brad. my favorite was when he had them look in the mirrors and said how you can see infinate images of one another but when you are only focused on yourself, you can only see yourself and how destructive that can be for a marriage. made me think about how selfish i have been lately.

we busted out the baby pool and reese took his first dip. i can't say that he loved it. but he was fasinated with the water.

my dear friend amber was here from arizona so she and i and lindsay all got together for a dinner at iggy's. we were all bff through jr. high and high school. unfortunately our friend brittany couldn't make it. we were totally bummed about it!

i love it now that the weather is warm! we have been out and about a lot lately, we have been doing lots of yard work and reese has been helping. he sits in his bouncer with his little hat on and plays with his toys while we weed. what a good boy!
brad's mom had her annual easter egg hunt. here's brad and reese with all the candy we got. she had it a wee bit late this year so that everyone could come. it pretty much takes care of our candy cravings for the next six months.

amber, andy and kylee came to visit us the other night too. it was so good to see them and to finally meet this little sweet heart. i think she and reese liked eachother.

yesterdayboualay invited me and reese to go to naomi's preschool picnic. it was really fun! we ate free food, played on the playground, and just talked. thanks! i had a good time. i am really glad we are such good friends. reese got tuckered out!

me and boualay

reese is such a big boy! he is sitting up really well now!

it was my first mothers day as a mommy. i liked it. it was fun. on saturday i told brad i HAD to get a swim suit cause they were on sale for 20% off, so we drove down to slc and brad gave me the gift certificate he was going to give me for mothers day. i always ruin presents he gets for me... well, at least he still loves me. he cooked me breakfast and let me sleep in and then we went to church. it was a happy day.

silly goose

my niece jenni is getting married in a few weeks so on thursday i went to her shower. i forgot to get a picture of her and her cute fiance brad. (yes, she is marrying a guy named brad too!) but reese really, really enjoyed the balloons. we tied one to his foot and he had about died and gone to heaven.
he sits! reese sits now. right here he is a little propped up by his daddy, but he sits all the time now. just not right after he eats or else there is puddle of barf in front of him!

dinner at my mom's house, sitting with tyler. ty is moving to orem, i'm hoping we still get to see him once in a while. but he is going into the automotive program and i know he is going to do great.

daddy was feeding reese when he head-butted the spoon.. gotta love it!
