Irresistible bath pics from Grandma's

Today was my first Friday off on my new four-day work schedule, and hopefully we can keep it up without completely exhausting ourselves. It's worth an extra night together! I took Will up to Grandma's for a bath so Dad could have a nap at home for a while. He had a great time, and as you can see, he LOVES bath time! He likes Grandma's new pets: sea turtles, and got dressed up like a big boy for a fancy dinner out with the folks. Plus check out his new crawling skills!

Uh Oh!

Our boy started crawling (real crawling) and pulling himself up in the same week! It's been very cute, but also nerve-racking! He crawled over to the end table and rocked it just enough to send an 8x10 framed photo of us crashing down on his head (and it left a dent according to dad, ouch!). Then there was the day that I walked past his room and noticed him standing at the edge of his crib (yikes!), and the dog's water being continuously knocked over. So we're busy around here. We learned a lesson about tiny digestive systems not liking eggs too. See the diaper-clad photos from the day the threw up three times all over both of us before I decided to let him stay in the buff. He was so cute and sad at the same time! Even with an upset stomach, he's still the sweetest and happiest boy I know. After he felt better on the weekend, we met Aunt Shelly, the kids, and some of Mom's friends from work at the Thai New Year festival in Layton, and went to the Gateway to have the computer fixed and watch kids play in the fountain. Sunday we drove up to visit Grandpa Jim's grave and let Will play on the grass for the first time! We had a picnic there, then drove up to the reservoir to let the dogs swim. Well Baby swam, Doyle took a few steps in and just barked until she came back to shore. That silly dog even grabbed her leash and tried to pull her back in several times! We had a busy, and wonderful weekend!

My computer has been down for a while, but it's time to get caught up!
We had a great Easter with Grandma C, Grandpa D, Uncle Chris, Aunt Shelly, and cousins NIck and Andi. Even Doyle, Baby, and Peidy came along! We had a delicious feast (of course) with lamb, ham, some silly cakes that Nick and Andi helped make, and carrot cake! Will loves carrot cake! We watched Nick and Andi search for eggs, then collected real eggs from the neighbor's chicken coup, and had a stroll around the block. The day was full of firsts, including our first trip to the grandparents house in our new truck!! (Mom's wanted one like this for thirteen years!)
