Memorial Day 2011

We enjoyed a nice family bike ride/walk this afternoon on the path that goes through town.  I pushed all three boys in the bike trailer/stroller to the Civic Center.  Corbin slept all the way there in the cargo space of the worked great...but won't work when Corbin gets bigger and wants to sit up!  On the way back, Ryan lowered the seat on his bike and I rode it back while he pushed the stroller...he was able to keep up with us bikers...something that I couldn't do.  Kessiah and Jenessa commented several times on how much they enjoyed having a family activity...we haven't done any fun family activities (with the whole family) for several months because of my pregnancy.  It was nice to be out together...a warm fuzzy moment!

For dinner we used the grill for the first time since last summer.  It was yummy and we finished it off with s'mores!

One Month Old

Wow!  One Month...time goes by so fast when I'm not pregnant!

Corbin is adorable and is starting to smile (at least we think so!)  He has been a good baby...he tends to get a little fussy in the evenings, but he generally only crys when he's hungry or wants to be held.  He wakes up every 2-3 hours at would be nice if it was at least every 3 hours...but we'll get there!

My mom left on Monday and I've missed having her around this week!  She was able to stay for 6 weeks and it was great!  She pretty much took charge of Mason and kept up with the dishes.  She also did much of the cooking (with Kessiah and Jenessa) which was very nice.  This week, I've had to take kids to softball games...the girls aren't a problem...but these 3 little boys that are 3 years and younger are another story!  Library storytime was challenging this week as well...I'm getting good at nursing Corbin while walking around keeping Mason in check!

It's a fun, chaotic life...I'm a lucky girl to be so blessed!

Jenessa's baptism/Corbin's blessing

Today was a special day for our family.  Corbin was blessed during Sacrament meeting and Jenessa was baptized this evening.  Jenessa waited to be baptized so that Papa could be here.

Corbin looked so handsomely cute in his white tux.

Jenessa was so excited for her special day!  Jenessa said that during her confirmation it felt like someone was "squeezing her heart."  I'm so glad to see her make good choices.

End of the School Year

Just a recap of this did it go?  Well, it was the end of my pregnancy for baby it was a little rough.  Thankfully, Kessiah and Jenessa are pretty independent in thier work.  Unfortunately, we didn't do any "extra" things beyond what was required which doesn't make for a very fun school year.

We did continue to go to gymnastics on Mondays.  We also somehow made it through basketball season with Kessiah and Jenessa.  The three girls are currently playing softball/t-ball.

We did pretty good at keeping up with our zones and Saturday jobs during this semester which was very helpful for me...since I pretty much fall apart at doing anything while I'm pregnant!

I'm smiling because...

"I'm smiling because you took me camping." 

That is what Logan told Ryan on their way home from the annual father-son campout.  Logan really needed some one-on-one time with his dad.  He has been having some attitude problems over the past several weeks...I don't know for sure if it is his age (he is that could be it!) or if it has to do with Corbin and Nana being here.
