Carson at 4 months

Carson just had his 4 month check up a couple of weeks ago and I cant believe how big he is getting. In fact they didn't even have a percentage for how tall he is!

Weight: 16lbs 3oz
Length: 27 inches long!

What I love about Carson at this age:
  1. He is the happiest baby ever! He is always smiling and laughing.
  2. He is such a cuddle bug. After I feed him in the early morning he nuzzles his head in my neck and goes back to sleep-so cute.
  3. He is so strong, and a very good roller-At least one direction ;)
  4. I love the spirit he brings into our home. The boys love to talk and play with him, I think he might be our little peacemaker!

4th of July in IDAHO

For the Fourth of July we decided to make the daring 16 hour trip with the kids to Idaho! I have to brag for a minute to say they did so good! We left on Friday at about 8:00pm and got all the way to Nephi, Utah without the boys waking up. Before we left I went to Joann and got a bunch of little crafts for the boys to do and some craft trays to put over their seats which made eating go especially well. About every 30 minutes we would do a new craft and we got all the way to Pocatello without even getting them out of the car. We would have kept going but by that point everytime I mentioned a craft they would say, "No more craft mommy!" Hence, we let them get out and run!

We had an overhead DVD installed in the Tahoe before we left. (The best investment we have ever made!)

Once we actually got to the cabin we had such a great time. The boys loved going to see Grandpa Young and being able to play outside all the time. And of course we cant forget the four wheeling. Spencer would sleep on them if he could!

Carson and Grandpa's favorite thing to do-Sleep!

The boys were so excited to ride the horses. We went to Harriman State Park one day and they let them ride the horses for a little while. Spencer was in heaven trotting along. Dallan on the other hand was a big talker until it came time to get on the horse, then he cried that he didn't want to go. He finally got on with Grandma, but would not turn around!

On the Fourth my Dad put on the amazing Bodine fireworks spectacular. And I mean spectacular! We all loved it-especially all the neighbors.

Anyway, we had a great time going to Yellowstone, four wheeling, enjoying the outdoors, and escaping the heat. There are so many pictures so we put them in a slide show. Thanks a bunch Grandpa!

Adventures in Hair!

As many of you know I went back to work a couple of weeks ago. It is so much fun. It has been over 2 years since I have worked in a salon and I have really missed it. I must say that it is fabulous to get dressed up and talk to adults during the day for a change! Not that I don't love trying to communicate with a 2 and 3 year old! But anyway I just wanted to thank Ryan for supporting me in this because by default he becomes Mr. Mom every Tuesday night and the Fridays he has off. And he does a great job with the boys, he is such a hard worker and is becoming a really good multi-tasker!!
