Happy Birthday, Matt.
We love having visitors in Arizona!
We had a fun family gathering to welcome Emily and Jackson to Arizona. She was here to visit with her mom while she went to a doctor conference.
Playing dolls. What a great dad.
Grandpa Hancock holding Jackson, such a sweet man.
We love having Brennan and Lauren around! They are living with Aunt Sharron while Lauren goes to Law School.
Yummy Rosa’s! I love sweet Grant.
Jack and Emily at their hotel. Tom and I went to visit.
He is about four months now.
Tom and Jack – he was able to calm his crying with lots of movement and walking around. He’s going to be the best daddy!
Dara came to visit, too!! For her Spring Break she decided that she needed to get a trip in to Arizona before we moved. She bought this adorable sweatshirt for the baby. I love her!
He’ll be the cutest CATS fan around!
I went with Dara to a bar in Scottsdale to watch the NCAA National Championship games. The UK Alumni Association met there. It was actually a lot of fun to be surrounded by so many Kentuckians and CATS fans.
Hey, honey. 🙂
We took a little wander around the Desert Botanical Gardens. It was beautiful.
Arizona isn’t always brown and ugly. I’ve really grown to love the beauty of the desert.
Tom and I got to take a Spring Break trip to Oregon to see Jeff and Ashlee and the boys. It was a blast.
The twins at the airport.
We made a deal with Amber that we would help her fly the boys to Oregon while Aaron was out of town. It turned out to be an easy flight! I’ll go to Oregon any time, if I get to fly with friends.
Cute Amber. I love her.
Tom was great with the babies!
We had a warm welcome!
Excited to see Oregon beauty for the first time.
We brought treats.
Jeff and Ashlee took us to the Wildlife Safari! It is always a good time. Tyler was just milking a cow. No biggie.
The Ostriches always creep me out. They get so close to the car!!
I love being able to see the animals up close and personal…as long as they don’t attack the car. 🙂
We were scared to be hugging a bear.
Pretty cool bird house!
Riding a turtle…he was pretty slow.
From the top of the playground.
Cutie Will. He has so much personality.
They also took us on a day trip to the coast. It was a tad chilly and overcast, but so gorgeous. We loved being on the ocean!
Love this beautiful Krebs family!
We took a short hike up to a lighthouse. Too bad it was under construction. The view was still breath-taking.
Building on the rocky beach.
It’s true. I love Tom.
You can’t beat Oregon scenery.
This bird liked the structure the boys built.
Now, they’re trying to build a bridge. They succeeded, but I didn’t get the picture.
Boys, sticks, sand, and water. You can beat it.
We got to eat at Mo’s for lunch. It was yummy! (I still don’t love Clam Chowder…sorry.)
This kid sure loved the Clam Chowder, though. He’s a great eater.
I love this boy. He’ll always have a special place in my heart, since he was the first grand-baby.
Me at Mo’s.
Beauty of the coast.
It was St. Patricks day, and the boys set a trap for the leprechaun! They didn’t catch him, but he sure left candy!
Story time with my sweet boys.
I guess reading so many books tuckers you out.
The Newell’s house in Eugene. We stayed there at the beginning and the end of the trip, since that’s where the airport is.
Handsome Sunday outfits.
He looked lovely in my headband.
They are the cutest.
We got to watch some good basketball during March Madness. There was no way Jeff would let us miss a UK game. No way.
He still looks like Uncle Wayne to me. I love that face.
Knock ’em dead, Ben!
Green omelets for St. Patricks day. 🙂
Watching the games.
When Benjamin found out that I was getting married, he told Jeff, “I don’t want Laura to get married, because then she’ll never visit us again.” I definitely had to prove him wrong. I have visited the Jeff Krebs family every single Spring Break that I’ve had in Arizona, and I couldn’t stop just because Tom joined the ranks. I love you, Benny! Tom just made the visit better!
Lots more great things happening around here.
Four months along! He’s growing exactly as he should. That’s right…we’re having a BOY!!
I love my little man so much already.
18 week ultrasound
He’s so tiny and perfect! Look at those cute little feet.
My view…sort of.
He wasn’t shy about showing us his man-parts! I am so happy to be having a boy first. I know he’ll be perfect.
Our incredible Special Ed secretary finally got recognized for the hard work that she has always put in for us. Congratulations, Kelly.
It was fun to be there with the whole team (new and old) and the school district VIP’s to shower Kelly with the praise she deserves.
Darling little Sadie.
Funny Garrett. He is a crazy kid.
I’m sure wonderful things happened this week. We don’t really have pictures of them, though. 🙂
Tom is in the Young Mens right now – Deacons quorum adviser. We went to one of their merit badge ceremonies. Reminds me of going to a million of these for my brothers.
He also went to one of their Saturday merit badge fairs/activities. Boys will be boys.
Beauty of the desert.
Meet the snake.
The snake that was lost in Tom’s car and NEVER found. I hated going in the car for weeks. Ew.
The youth had a flour war.
Tom had a great time running around with his flour sock.
Cute Grandpa Bay on his phone. We love going to their house for Sunday dinner. They are the best company!
And Grandma is a fabulous cook.
Thanks Brandon, for fixing our AC….again.
We went with the Tondevolds to the Mesa Arts Center Fair. This thing was called “Mirazozo” and it was awesome.
These next colorful shots are all on the inside.
We went to DQ afterwards. Yummy. Mint Oreo Blizzards are to die for.
They also had this cool Lego area at the MAC.
We went to Kelle Mendell’s (Foster) wedding reception! They had a great photo booth.
Hooray for getting married!
Music practice with Tammy and Greg. We performed at a fireside for their stake.
Tom is a sexy man and fixed his breaks.
Way to go, honey. I’m glad I married you.
Not sure of the reason Tom took this picture, but I do love my neighborhood.
And I sure love my house.
