One, One, One

This little guy turned 1!  I can't believe it, how fast time can go sometimes.  What a great year it has been and I have really enjoyed watching him learn.  For his birthday I took him to the park where we played on the swings and slide, and we had a little picnic.  We did not have his party for a couple of weeks after his actual birthday because there was so much going on and I did not want to rush it.

We had his birthday in the park and of course the weather was nice and cold and windy, ha ha.  The one day in California.  We did a Dr. Seuss theme and even though the weather was cold we had a good time.

Cupcakes, smash cake, and cake.  Ignore that the wind destroyed my cupcake holder, BOO!!
Thing 1, Thing 1, Thing 1!!

We had some fun Dr. Seuss snacks with some turkey sandwiches.
Everyone really enjoyed the beezlenut splash, especially the kids.
The kids waiting to get a cupcake.  We had just got done singing happy birthday but the wind would not keep the candles lit.

A little birthday lovin from his dad.
Enjoying his presents at home out of the cold.  He is wearing a very cute Dr. Seuss shirt that no one was able to see and now I am realizing I never took a picture of it.
Enjoying some music by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir the next morning.  Life is good.  Oh and yes he loves sitting in his baby bouncer.  I bought him a bean bag and he insists on the baby bouncer.

Blogging is TEDIOUS!!

I try hard to keep my blog updated, but there is normally very little time to write about every event that is happening.  So most of these posts will short and sweet.  Basically, a picture with a description about what we were up to.

Appendicitis anyone?  Yes it happened to me one horrible Sunday night and out of the blue.  One second you are teaching Young Women and the next you are at the emergency room certain you are going to die.  Luckily a good friend of mine took Marcus that night so that he did not have to come to the hospital with me.  The best part is that my mom came out to help me for a few days after surgery since I was unable to lift anything.  Luckily I will not have to do that again, ha ha.  This picture is just before my mom left to go home.

Vasquez Rocks!  A few of my friends and I went hiking at Vazquez with the kids.  They filmed the Flintstones movie there.  It is pretty fun and the kids had a blast.  This picture is of Marcus and Lucy, we have already arranged their marriage.

All the kids were so good to each other and we had great weather that day.

Marcus and his pal Sam, Lucy's older brother.  He thinks that Sam is great and has a fun time playing with him.

Poor Marcus caught the croup.  This was are first sick experience.  I felt bad for the little guy, but he was pretty good humored considering that he did not feel all that great.
Marcus and Lucy taking a little break.  This does not happen that often.

Life is truly great.  Who knew that a simple spoon could create this much happiness.
