Can't believe he is that old! SM had a great birthday! We started off early with cake and presents and Grandma and Grandpa's (where he finally got his own helicopter) then after swimming lessons, we headed to Lindsey's and went swimming at the Spanish Fork pool and had lots of fun. Then we dropped of GJ and just the two of us went to see Toy Story 3, which overall he liked, but he gets way to tense and anxious and at one point was even (loudly) telling me he wanted to leave, but we stuck it out and it turned out okay. Yummy chicken and pepper grilled shish-kabobs for dinner and then Mario Galaxy Wii to finish off his evening. He is such a great kid and growing and learning so much everyday! We sure love you SM!!!

GJ is my sweetheart. He loves his mama. He still has chubby cheeks that shake when he runs. He loves berries, pretty much any kind, mostly strawberries and blueberries. He does not like to play with his brother unless he is in the mood. He copies him when they are being silly though. He likes to look at books, but will only let you read it if it is at his desired pace. He likes flying things, namely the new helicopter he got which his brother is constantly trying to steal. His face lights up so much when he smiles and laughs, which dad can usually get him to do best by being silly. He knows all his letters and can count well, but the colors still seem to evade him (everything is orange). He is a very laid back kid, starting to get quite opinionated with certain things (he must wear lighting mcqueen jammies every night to bed). He loves marbles and will usually play with a toy for long amounts of time (direct contrast to brother). He really is such a joy and so low key, he has a perfect place in our family. He gives me the best hugs and kisses. He insists on praying every time one needs to be said, though leaves out the entire middle. He always makes me laugh.

For his birthday, we had a busy day! We went to the park, the library, had chicken nuggets, met up with Aunt Linny and went to the zoo, (that baby elephant is the cutest) picked up daddy for dinner then had chocolate cupcakes (as you can see, the first batch of frosting didn't quite work out) and then had presents and played in the (wet, oops-I left the lid off) sandbox with his new sand toys.
I love you GJ! So glad you are part of our family!

Feed the birds...

This week it rained so we stayed in and made some bird feeders with PB and cornstarch spread on a pine cone, then rolled in bird seed.

Very messy and I haven't seen many birds yet, but it was fun.

I really wish the camera wasn't dead, we had our first visit to the zoo, saw a rainbow, lots of park visits, walks, bike rides and camping (hopefully Linny will send me pictures soon to post, hint hint)
Swimming lessons start tomorrow and if feels like summer :)
