Baby and Bagel. Bagel is really sick right now, she is super skinny and could pass away soon. Poor thing.

2013-07-18 11.31.56_small

My happy little nap-taker. He doesn’t let us rock him to sleep anymore. He is a superstar sleeper.

2013-07-18 11.42.42_small

He is still obsessed with bath time. (And shower time!)

2013-07-18 17.27.00_small

We surprised dad at his soccer game! Spencer loves being there…even if we don’t get to watch much of the game.

2013-07-18 17.25.09_small

He was pretty excited and interested for the first three minutes.

2013-07-18 16.42.13_small

Playing with the Flarp that we won at the Weenorama. He’s skeptical.

2013-07-18 14.11.00_small

 Tom sent me birthday roses! I got two dozen gorgeous flowers the day before my birthday. I have the sweetest husband alive.

2013-07-18 19.53.54-2_small

My little streaker on the “phone.”

2013-07-19 09.41.10_small

I finally put Spencer’s pictures on the wall!

2013-07-19 09.36.36_small

I used this Pinterest trick and it worked perfectly. I am thrilled.

2013-07-19 08.50.50-1_small

Happy birthday to me! I am 29 years old now…almost to my 30’s! Spencer was pretty excited to wake up to my birthday balloons. Thanks, Tom!

2013-07-19 08.18.18_small

My sweet husband had to work, but he left me with plenty of gifts. Yum. I didn’t open the wrapped presents until birthday eve, but they were worth the wait!

2013-07-19 13.02.29_small

Jenna took me and Spence out to lunch at Apollo Burger. It was delicious! I’m grateful for good friends!

2013-07-19 19.15.37_small

We used our Pass of all Passes to play at Seven Peaks in SLC after Tom got off work. It was fun! Spencer had a blast playing in the wave pool with dad and Grandpa.

2013-07-19 20.04.29_small

We stayed at the park from about 6-8pm.

2013-07-19 16.46.22_small

A happy baby is a happy mom, so I took Spencer to “Kid to Kid” and picked out new toys. He was definitely happy. 🙂

2013-07-19 14.27.45_small

Playing with his new car racer.

2013-07-19 13.36.07_small

 He loved playing with all of the toys that were laying around everywhere. 

2013-07-20 15.01.25_small

Picking the piggy’s nose.

2013-07-19 22.12.26_small

 I was spoiled rotten on my birthday. Thanks, honey.

2013-07-20 08.33.51_small

Tom bought me spice holders for my pantry! Yay!

2013-07-07 09.17.34_small

On Sunday, we got to see Jeff, Ashlee, and the boys. They are the cutest little guys – especially sweet Ethan!

2013-07-07 09.43.31_small

Will had fun with Spence in the sandbox.

2013-07-07 09.43.48_small

A little bit of cornhole was played. Can you believe that Tyler is the same height as Ben? 🙂

2013-07-07 09.44.07_small

Ethan is such a sweetheart. So is Tom.

2013-07-07 17.48.38_small

That afternoon, we had a big Sunday dinner because it was Becky’s last weekend with us. All of our grandparents came, and John/Lucy joined. It was delicious, as usual.

2013-07-07 18.24.14_small

 John and Jon helped us test out our “Minute to Ween It” games for the Weenorama on Saturday. John did pretty good!

2013-07-08 20.12.01-1_small

My sweet little Kentucky boy. He loves the truck!

2013-07-09 09.54.02_small

He’s always a good helper. I love his face so much.

2013-07-09 18.40.48_small

Jon and Anna were going to Yellowstone, so we had a dinner at Del Taco with them so that they could say goodbye to Becky. It’s crazy to think that we probably won’t see her and the girls until next summer!

2013-07-09 20.10.35_small

 Spencer had a BLAST in the play-place, thanks to dad. I think they are gross and never want to climb up there with him. Haha. I’m pretty sure he got nasty diarrhea from Del Taco for the next couple days. Ew.

2013-07-10 17.28.14_small

We had a fun Activity Days water day with the girls. Amanda Lewis planned it and we had it in her backyard.

2013-07-11 16.41.06_small

He’s a Bay man, through and through. He tried to get this screw into the wheel for a good 10 minutes – he is a little worker bee. He keeps himself so busy trying to figure things out.

2013-07-11 16.40.31_small

When he couldn’t get the screw into the wheel, he tried putting it in the hole. He’s a smarty.

2013-07-11 14.33.23_small

My BFF. <3 He’s the happiest, sweetest baby alive.

2013-07-11 20.01.28_small

 Tom has had to fix our swamp cooler way too many times for only living in the house two months. We have it scheduled to get central air on the 25th. Hallelujah.

2013-07-12 13.26.13_small

My sweet little tornado.

2013-07-12 17.20.45_small

We had lots of fun days in the pool while Becky and the girls were in town.

2013-07-12 16.55.17_small

It’s so nice to have a pool so close!

2013-07-12 14.50.31_small

This is his new favorite place in the house. He empties that drawer at least 4 times a day.

2013-07-12 13.34.35_small

 Joy in the sandbox.

2013-07-12 19.07.36_small

Cute little KyKy. I hope they are best friend cousins someday.

2013-07-13 10.23.42_small

Spencer really likes pulling the books of his shelf and flipping through the pages. He doesn’t have much patience with me reading them to him, but I’m glad that he’s at least interested in books.

2013-07-13 23.34.01_small

 Lucy watched Spencer for us while we were setting up for the Weenorama. At one point she went in because he wouldn’t stop crying, and he had tucked in his panda. He loves panda so much. He’s adorable.

2013-07-09 10.10.41_small

The WEEN-O-RAMA has arrived!!

2013-07-12 21.34.40_small

All the stuff gathered in our garage. So much stuff.

2013-07-13 07.43.04_small

Marketing for Minute to Ween It.

All ready!

Ween family picture.

Dad setting up for us. Those tarps ended up being taken down right away because it was SO windy.

2013-07-13 17.02.17_small

Joe brought us 150 amazingly delicious cookies from Paradise Bakery. People were basically fighting over them by the end.

2013-07-13 17.44.55_small

 Our opening ceremonies. 🙂

2013-07-13 18.36.24_small

Tom with our reigning Queen of the Ween.

2013-07-13 18.57.53_small

At about 6:45pm (The Ween started at 5:00pm) it started pouring rain! It was okay under the pavilion, until the wind started up. Everyone was getting soaked! We all squished onto the stage. Basically everyone left once the rain let up. We didn’t get to do Minute to Ween It. Oh well. It’s all planned for next year.

2013-07-13 19.06.56_small

Spencer and Lucy. He was super grumpy, because he never ended up taking a nap.

2013-07-13 19.07.57_small

 So grateful for good friends and the Ween that brings us together. Thanks for coming, Jenna! This years Ween went WAY better for me than last year, even though we were rained out. We were set up on time, and everything went smoothly. Hopefully people had fun. I did. 🙂

June 30 – July 6, 2013

Snuggles with my angel.

2013-07-02 18.08.41-1_small

His face. He loves getting into my drawers. Every. Day.

2013-07-02 16.52.06_small

Play date with Wyatt and Sam. Spencer had a great time.

2013-07-02 16.13.54_small

Cute boys!

Helping me meal plan.

2013-07-02 20.46.24_small

Jeff flew into SLC on Tuesday night, and I was able to pick him up and drive him to Heber for a Newell family reunion. I got to see the boys for a minute. They are adorable. I’ve never met Ethan before! He was sleeping, but still adorable.

2013-07-02 21.03.38_small

Ben and Ty!

2013-07-02 20.52.19_small

Benny missed his dad.

2013-07-03 08.17.52_small

So fresh and so clean.

2013-07-03 10.50.27_small

We attempted a grandkid picture day. Spencer looks super nervous, and Torbin had to be photoshopped into the picture. He screamed most of the time, but luckily he was happy for his individual pictures.

2013-07-03 11.43.39-1_small

This is what most of the 2 hours looked like.

2013-07-03 11.06.09_small

Waiting room….

2013-07-03 10.54.45_small

Posing with Claire.

2013-07-03 13.48.02-2_small

I love his teeth. He’s such a sweet and happy boy.

Mohawk day.

2013-07-04 14.02.34_small

Happy 4th of July with Brynn! I can’t believe we didn’t get any other pictures. It was a lovely day with the family.

2013-07-05 10.32.25-2_small

His new favorite trick.

2013-07-05 18.14.32_small

We’ve loved having Becky here with the girls! Spencer really likes his cousins. 🙂

2013-07-06 08.19.06_small

 Sweetest babies.

2013-07-06 11.51.56_small

He has the best smile on earth.

2013-07-06 12.13.31_small

 Mom and dad are hilarious!!

2013-07-06 18.55.27_small

We got to go to the Riverton Town Days Demolition Derby! We loved every minute! Spencer thought it was about the coolest thing he’d ever seen.

2013-07-06 19.10.00_small

He kept clapping and making his car noises. (Mostly spitting)

2013-07-06 19.16.38_small

Proud to be an American! And a Riverton resident.

2013-07-06 20.55.16-2_small

This car had a really bad day.

2013-07-06 18.55.37_small

The line-up.

2013-07-06 20.10.35_small

It rained a little – but we stuck out the storm.

2013-07-06 20.26.19_small

 Huge dance party in the arena! People kept jumping over the fence. It was awesome.
