This video is the #1 video on YouTube right now, His name is John Schmidt, and he is a member of the LDS church. He is also an AMAZING pianist. We had the opportunity to listen to him at a Seminary inservice. This song is Taylor Swift's "Love Story" meets Coldplay's "Viva La Vida". I LOVE the arrangement, you may even go blind from overexposure to pure awesomeness:)

Memorial Weekend

Bridger is learning to crawl. He just started taking steps with his hands. He doesn't go very far yet, and he still sometimes face-plants, but I know it wont be long before he is emptying all my cupboards and drawers. I am really enjoying this little guy. He is still such a cuddler and I LOVE IT!

This weekend we said goodbye to a very faithful old friend named Gwenners (our gray car). It was a sad day, we have had that car since we were married, and we have been through a lot together. We took it to a pick a part place in Orem. Our favorite thing about that car was the 94' cool mix tape that was stuck in the stereo. Everytime we started the car, we had the pleasure of listening to Ace of Base and Boys II Men, and yes we would often turn up the volume and base and roll down the windows and rock out:) We will miss you great old friend.

We also went to temple square and visited the sites there. Ryker loves the "I am a Child of God" section of the CHurch History Museum. We had a fun day.

When we got back from temple square, ryker ran through the sprinkler with some neighbor buddies. They were also having squirt gun fights.He loves playing with these two boys. One the boys comes from a spanish speaking home, and whenever he sees Ryker he always yells "HOLA RYKER" I think it is so cute.

Mother's Day (I posted twice, keep reading:)

I am a little behind on blogging, but I wanted to post about mother's day...I was soooo spoiled! Shawn brought home the most gorgeous roses I have ever seen, I love the bright colors. I also got breakfast in bed, french toast, my favorite! When I went into the living room, Shawn's laptop was on the table and he had a little presentation for me. He went to so much work, making a power point for me about mother hood, it made me cry. He also gave me some money for a shopping spree, Fun! And He made some cupons that the boys gave me...they were so cute and creative! Shawn made them on the computor, and they looked just like real cupons with a barcode and everything, they said things like: Free! mom and me will pay the bill, may be combined with any other offer. Another one said: In-home savings cupon, get an extra 10% off your day, this cupon is good for an uninterupted nap. I just thought it was so cute, and Shawn went to so much work. I love that guy!!!!

Here is a pic of me with my boys on mothers day. I feel so blessed to be their mom. I love being surrounded by boys, cute boys at that!

I also went on a girls night out, and we treated ourselves for mothers day! I went to the Cheesecake factory with Cindy and Tracy. It was the first time I had ever been there, and It was soooooooo good. I am still dreaming about those avacado eggrolls we had. Yum!

What we have been up to...

This past weekend, we drove up the A.F. canyon for a picnic. It was so nice to just get away from everything and play in the water and enjoy each other before Shawn starts his summer semester. We live in such a beautiful area, I love it!

My sister had her 4th this week as well, and I took the boys to Idaho for 2 days to see the little (not so little) guy. He is one of the cutest little newborns I have ever seen, he just makes me giggle. Chase Michael was born at 9lbs. 8oz. he is such a little butter ball!
Can you believe those cheeks! Perfect for kisses!

We spent some time in Firth, and Ryker took some golfing lessons (along with some cousins) from his grandpa. They had such a fun time.

Birthday Boy!

Ryker turned 4 last Thursday, it is so weird to me that he is 4. We had such a fun weekend. My parents came to visit, and my brother and his family came as well. Ryker had such a fun time with his cousins. Here they are watching a movie together.
I made Ryker a "Tow Mater" cake from the movie cars. It isn't perfect (I am not an artist by any means) but Ryker sure loved it!

He has been wanting a scooter for a while now, so the lucky boy got one for his birthday.
We went to this fun indoor amusement park with his cousins. they had a blast!
