The Joys of being a mommy!

Hunter went to his first neighborhood friends birthday party! He was soo cute! I never would have thought that birthday parties for little kids would be so fun. I never thought I would live for every tiny thing that my son wonders about, learns about, sees, gets excited over...Its amazing that I could sit all day long watching what Hunter does and be completely happy. I love being mommy.

He would not let go of this wand...he raved over it for two hours!!(Jason didnt really like the whole sparkly wand thing in his little boys hand but hey hes just a little baby!)

This is one of Hunter's buddies! Bentley...They love each other! Cant wait for the mayhem these two will cause (and all the other little ones here)

Hunter and his favorite cousins!!!

To ALL You Women!! Happy Mother's Day!


Women have strengths that amaze men.....
They bear hardships and they carry burdens,
but they hold happiness, love and joy.
They smile when they want to scream.
They sing when they want to cry.
They cry when they are happy
and laugh when they are nervous.

They fight for what they believe in..
They stand up to injustice.
They don't take "no" for an answer
when they believe there is a better solution.
They go without so their family can have.

They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.
They love unconditionally.
They cry when their children excel
and cheer when their friends get awards.

They are happy when they hear about
a birth or a wedding.
Their hearts break when a friend dies.
They grieve at the loss of a family member,
yet they are strong when they
think there is no strength left.

They know that a hug and a kiss
can heal a broken heart.
Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors.
They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you
to show how much they care about you.

The heart of a woman is what
makes the world keep turning.
They bring joy, hope and love.
They have compassion and ideas.
They give moral support to their
family and friends.

Women have vital things to say
and everything to give.

April snow brings may...???

So lately we have been living a little inside because of the crazy weather!! It decides to go from sunny and wonderful to snowy, rainy and very cold!! Hunter is not liking it at all. He loves the outdoors. He will always reach for the door when we walk by it and he gets so happy even if we just open the door for him to look outside. Its really cute. I cant run the half marathon. About a month ago I injured my ankle really badly... it still is jacked up right now. I cant move it certain ways. Ive decided to run at least the 5k. Ya...not a huge deal but...maybe one of the next ones. Its still fun to train...just sucks when youve trained for a while and then get injured. It was quite funny though...I picture watching myself as I was running around the corner...bending my ankle in half, sprawling out and rolling down the road and then just lying there looking up at the sky saying...first of all ouch and bad words in my head...and second of all...youve got to be kidding me...whoever watched that just got the best laugh of their week! Its a HUGE bummer but I dont want to injure it more. I gotta wait for it to heal to do any major stuff. Jason has been having fun when the weather has been decent! Hes been stoked to go fishing and things. He cant wait to take his pontoon boat out and Im excited for him too!
Hunter army crawls everywhere still...he now will grab my hands and stand up...but only that..nothing else. He loves to talk and yell ALL the time...and still loves to snuggle (our favorite thing). He is such a sweet and smart boy...I cant believe in about three months...he will be ONE!!!!! Where did the time go?!!!!

Oh and another thing...we have such an amazing neighborhood! We have been so blessed having such great friends here. We also have an awesome little springville Zoo as I tend to think of are a few pics hahaha!! Yes that is a kangaroo...
