Still in Ogden for the rest of the day. Spencer is a big boy, just feeding himself a bottle.

2013-08-25 10.21.57_small

I love the hat that Aunt Brittany got him for his birthday! My little stud-muffin.

2013-08-25 12.16.12_small

Goodbye Browning House, you provided much joy (and Krebs unity) for the wedding weekend.

2013-08-25 21.04.57_small

Tom loves giant panda…maybe more than his wife.

2013-08-25 20.28.08_small

Wedding shot from Emily!

2013-08-25 18.23.48_small

Happy August birthday boys!

2013-08-26 13.58.11-1_small

Brynn made me that amazing birthday banner for my birthday. I love it! Spencer had a wonderful real birthday on the 26th. He’s my sweet and happy boy.

2013-08-26 15.46.20_small

We went to the aquarium for some birthday fun and fishes. He loved looking through the windows at everything.

2013-08-26 15.46.31_small

So many cool things to see!

2013-08-26 16.29.36_small

He got to touch the water!

2013-08-26 16.11.07_small

And the best part? He got to play with the stuffed toys.

2013-08-26 14.09.27_small

He played with his new ball toy from Grandpa and Grandma Bay a lot.

2013-08-26 14.08.30_small

He gave giant panda lots of hugs and kisses.

2013-08-26 13.59.47-1_small

He posed for his birthday photo-shoot. 

2013-08-26 19.20.03_small

We had a combined Bay family birthday party for Tom, Torbin, and Spencer on the 26th.

Blowing out their candles.

2013-08-26 21.52.20_small

Tom got a fun game from Brittany, so we played it as soon as we got home. 🙂

2013-08-26 21.42.42_small

I think we both won.

2013-08-26 21.12.14_small

Adorable wedding shot from Emily.

2013-08-27 12.49.48_small

SO many hugs for panda. He’s in love.

2013-08-29 12.56.37_small

For his birthday, Spencer was able to go to the Riverton Hospital and pick out a stuffed toy. He LOVES stuffed animals, they are his best little friends. He was more than thrilled to get another one from a stranger.

2013-08-29 13.07.35_small

He wouldn’t let the penguin go, even in Home Depot.

2013-08-28 18.52.45_small

Duet time with mom.

2013-08-27 18.55.49-2_small

He loves his little panda friends.

2013-08-29 13.29.40_small

Just hanging with my boy, getting my car checked for our new registration.

2013-08-29 13.37.52_small

He loved watching the cars at Jiffy Lube.

2013-08-30 15.13.47-2_small

Tom helped his co-worker’s wife fix her van (they needed a new battery).

2013-08-29 20.16.14-2_small

My poor baby had to get 6 shots and a finger prick at his one-year check up. I’m so grateful that he is a healthy and happy boy!

2013-08-29 17.10.24-1_small

He was loving all the toys and books at Dr. Wonnacott’s office. 

2013-08-30 15.51.49_small

We had a fun afternoon swim at the Herriman Rec Center. He loves walking around in the water. Too bad it’s SO COLD! He shivers like crazy every time we go, so we can’t stay too long.

2013-08-31 19.17.04-1_small

Handsome, clean face.

2013-08-31 19.09.53_small

Tom helped a lady move out of her house for 2.5 hours one night. Good thing lots of men showed up to help!

2013-08-31 09.37.32-1_small

Pj’s and sandals. He’s making a statement.

2013-08-30 20.22.31-2_small

Temple date night with my love.

August 21-24, 2013 (Ogden Family Reunion)

2013-08-21 18.34.45_small

We got to go to the lake! Spencer was obsessed with his giant sandbox. He ate many loads of sand. And I got to water ski! It’s been years, but I got up and had a great time with the family.

2013-08-21 19.22.35_small

Tom didn’t get to come to the beach until after work (it was his birthday!!), but we were SO happy to see him.

2013-08-21 18.34.45_small

My sweet little sand baby.

2013-08-21 21.37.48_small

We had a small little birthday party for Tom at the Ogden house. He opened one of his presents (the rest were saved for the Bay party next Monday), and we ate a delicious cake.

2013-08-22 11.46.05_small

I love Costco cakes. Yummy, yum, yum. Happy 33rd birthday to the most wonderful and happy man I’ve ever met. I love you, Tom!

2013-08-22 09.20.09_small

The kids loved listening to these scripture stories that Jeff’s boys brought. It kept them entertained for hours.

2013-08-22 07.42.53_small

The Browning House in Ogden. It was just big enough for our huge family. Each Krebs kid got one room for their family, and Glen slept on the couch. We had a wonderful time together. Each night we were able to have “adult time” – before the wedding we were wedding planning, but after the wedding we got to relax and talk/play games. I love my parents and siblings!

2013-08-22 12.49.20_small

The day before the wedding we went with Lucy to get our nails painted. It was a super ghetto little place, and they didn’t speak English very well, but we had a nice time talking and getting pampered.

2013-08-22 13.11.41_small

Emma and Aliya got to join in the fun, they were adorable!

2013-08-22 20.52.24-1_small

Shirts optional at the Jucy wedding! My mom made these adorable bow ties.

2013-08-22 19.43.06_small

Dinner time on the back patio. We had some delicious food.

2013-08-22 17.39.34_small

The kids had too much fun in the hot tub. I wish I had been able to play, too!

2013-08-24 09.44.07_small

Studly studs.

2013-08-24 16.57.14_small

We went to the train museum one afternoon. The kids (and Tom) had a blast climbing all over the trains!

2013-08-24 16.47.32_small

Spencer was a great train conductor.

2013-08-24 16.46.01_small

So was Will Bill!

2013-08-24 17.07.52_small

Playing on the trains!

2013-08-24 09.46.03_small

Our ELEVEN grandbabies! (And Emily has one on the way.) They were looking pretty fly in their sunglasses.

2013-08-24 17.50.45_small

Family photo!

2013-08-24 17.26.32_small

It was a gorgeous night, with lots of stormy clouds. It started raining right as we left.

2013-08-24 17.13.28_small

Grandpa had fun climbing, too. The train park was a great place to entertain the kids.

August 24, 2013 (Spencer’s 1st Birthday Party)

2013-08-24 11.20.53_small

Well, my baby turned one! (Technically in two days) It has been an amazingly happy and satisfying year. He is the happiest, sweetest, smartest, most exploring boy I know. He loves people. He loves toys. He loves stuffed animals of any kind, but especially pandas. He loves learning. He loves having projects that use his fine motor skills. He is a great sleeper, eater, kisser, and overall boy. We love him more than anything in the world. I miss him when he’s asleep. He makes my day great every day. I love you, Spencer!

2013-08-24 11.12.47_smallI was so excited when I realized that my entire family would be in town around Spencer’s birthday. It took some planning, but we scheduled the party for the day after the Jucy wedding. (Sorry, John and Lucy!) It was so fun to have BOTH sides of the family at the party. Spencer was in heaven with all of his favorite people.
2013-08-24 11.18.41_small

He would have been happy with just the ribbon.

2013-08-24 11.25.49_small

Tooting his horn.

2013-08-24 11.25.41_small

Two very handsome Krebs’ boys.

2013-08-24 11.23.03_small

We were all pretty tired after the wedding, but it was a great party. (Despite the fact that we didn’t have a table to eat at…they were all taken.) We had the party on the stage at the Bountiful City Park.

2013-08-24 11.22.53_small

Yay, presents!

2013-08-24 11.32.49_small

He wasn’t so sure about the cake at first…

2013-08-24 11.41.56_small

Everyone ended up having a great time talking and eating yummy cake.

2013-08-24 11.41.53_small

Both Grandpas were there!

2013-08-24 11.41.30_small

He ended up loving his cake! Mostly, because we gave him a fork to eat it with.

2013-08-24 11.41.20_small

Cute Zach.

2013-08-24 11.42.11_small

Sweet Emma

2013-08-24 11.50.40_small

I love how excited he gets about EVERYTHING. He squeals and makes a funny face and it is basically the cutest thing.

2013-08-24 11.49.50-1_small

My spoiled boy.

2013-08-24 11.43.14_small

He wouldn’t stop eating for the picture.

2013-08-24 11.42.50_small

My cutie.

2013-08-24 11.51.39_small

All the kids loved helping him open the presents.

2013-08-24 12.30.10_small

Cool dude.

2013-08-24 12.27.12_small

All of Spencer’s amazing grandparents! We were so grateful to have them all there.

2013-08-24 12.22.20_small

Hugs for daddy. He’s a good boy.

We dropped all 11 kids off at Corinda’s Aunts house with Corinda’s mom.

2013-08-23 10.40.45-1_small

Pre-wedding family prayer.

2013-08-23 12.02.29-1_small

We made it to the Bountiful Temple on time!

2013-08-23 14.16.14_small

John and Lucy Krebs!

2013-08-23 14.15.50_small

Lucy looked gorgeous. They are a beautiful couple.

2013-08-23 14.14.28_small

Spencer and Grandma

 My beautiful Aunt Valene

2013-08-23 14.16.18_small

Spencer couldn’t stop pointing at John and Lucy.

2013-08-23 14.44.03_small

Walking with Will Bill.

2013-08-23 14.43.14_small

It rained the whole time we were taking pictures.

Thanks for coming to the reception, Jon and Anna! (Photobomb by Brittany)

Jo-Jo lost his shirt on the dance floor. 🙂

Happy Honeymooning!

2013-08-18 11.30.17_small

Mom, Dad, and Glen are in town!! It was so fun to spend a little time with them before everyone else showed up for John and Lucy’s wedding. I haven’t seen them since Christmas.

2013-08-18 13.57.21_small

Church! Grandpa held and entertained Spencer the whole time. It was wonderful.

2013-08-18 19.54.48_small

I sure love this handsome man of mine.

2013-08-18 21.05.21_small

We didn’t have our anniversary cake until the 18th. It was delicious!

2013-08-18 21.05.35_small

The single table. (But not for long, Jucy!)

2013-08-19 14.03.26_small

I sent this picture to Tom (jokingly) and suggested we get this giant panda for Spencer’s birthday. Spencer has a thing for cute pandas. Tom was insistent that we actually get it! He had a huge bear growing up that he loved, and he wanted Spencer to have the same.

2013-08-19 17.11.00_small

Playing at the park with Grandpa!

2013-08-19 18.09.56_small

Two grandpas and a lucky little boy.

2013-08-19 18.14.24_small

Two beautiful grandmas!

2013-08-19 19.46.06_small

Double swing times! The boys were a little unsure. 🙂

2013-08-19 19.52.39_small

It was a red shirt type of day.

2013-08-20 11.43.51_small

Spencer was at Costco with us when we bought his panda, so he got a sneak peak before his birthday. He was instantly obsessed. (And comfortable)

2013-08-20 11.54.09_small

There was no room in my car for all of the groceries AND panda. My dad is UNDER the panda behind me, and Spencer is definitely in his carseat.

2013-08-20 18.49.36_small

Sweet baby Ethan flew in with Chuck and Emily from Oregon (they visited for a week before the Utah reunion).

2013-08-20 22.30.05_small

Relaxing night before the crazy week began!2013-08-20 23.18.26_small

On Tuesday night, we had mom, dad, Glen, Tammy, Emma, Grant, Grandpa Hancock, Chuck, Emily, Jackson, me, Tom, and Spencer all sleeping in our little house. We all miraculously fit and had a wonderful time hanging out before the official reunion began on Wednesday.

August 11-17, 2013

2013-08-11 10.22.45-2_small

Our little man LOVES taking showers with mom or dad. He happily plays with his toys the whole time. It’s a wonderful thing. I don’t have to shower as fast as I can while he’s napping anymore.

2013-08-12 19.45.08_small

The Walkers asked us to plan a Bergen Circle block party. We had great attendance! It was nice to get to know our circle a little better.

2013-08-12 18.44.00_small

Chatting with neighbors.

2013-08-12 18.43.55_small

The Walkers let us use their backyard. They have lots of fun toys!

2013-08-12 19.45.27_small

Playing Volleyball with the big boys.

2013-08-11 14.28.24-2_small

1:00pm is the WORST time for church and naps. Luckily, we’ve found that if we keep him in his carseat and rock him for a long time he’ll eventually fall asleep. My handsome Sunday sleeper. 

2013-08-15 20.54.36-1_small

Spencer looks good in work gloves.

2013-08-15 14.32.49-1_small

Just reading his free library book. He loves all of the animals.

2013-08-14 12.37.20_small

My baby had some kind of stomach bug. He threw up and wouldn’t eat much for awhile. Poor little man.

2013-08-13 19.44.32-2_small

We went suit shopping for dad. He had to get a grey suit for John and Lucy’s wedding. It looks very good on him.

2013-08-16 11.26.55_small

We had a fun playdate with Jen Fong and Becca Khong and their adorable kids. We had seven kids there between the three of us! The older boys loved playing cornhole.

2013-08-16 14.11.49_small

Spencer loved hanging out with his girlfriends. (He’s still in his pj’s because he was about to nap through the whole playdate!)

2013-08-16 11.56.04_small

Cute Fong boys.

2013-08-16 16.14.28-1_small

Ready or not! I’ve been training for the Triathamom for months now, and it’s finally here! “Strong is the new Pretty”

2013-08-17 09.14.35_small

Grandma, Grandpa, and Spencer colored me a beautiful poster while they waited for me to finish.

2013-08-17 09.04.54-1_small

Action shot by Tom.

2013-08-17 06.57.17_small

All my stuff, ready to go.

2013-08-17 09.55.38-2_small

Rachel Campbell was part of a team, and she did the run. It was fun to see a few people we know. (Megan Whitaker and family, Tara)

2013-08-17 09.50.04_small

It was really nice of mom and dad to come and support me! I had a good time, and wasn’t even too sore after. 🙂

2013-08-17 11.52.51_small

My reward for finishing the Triathamom! I can’t wait!

2013-08-17 18.46.38_small

Our sweet boy still loves being cuddled while he eats.

August 4-10, 2013

2013-08-09 20.59.17-1_small

Spencer points and squeals at everything. He is an excitable boy. 🙂

2013-08-09 18.11.09_small

Coloring with dad. Maybe someday he won’t want to eat the crayons (Spencer, not Tom).

2013-08-10 12.59.49_small

He LOVES blueberries and cheerios.

2013-08-10 11.07.18_small

 We painted our bedroom for the August project. I love it!

2013-08-10 22.53.10_small

We also got brand new furniture from IKEA.

2013-08-09 13.50.41_small

John and Lucy tried to win a king size bed from IKEA. They were SO CLOSE, but got 2nd place. They still got $400 in prizes.

2013-08-09 16.16.17_small

 Our fancy prize from IKEA. Thanks, John and Lucy.

2013-08-10 09.52.06-1_small

We went on a family run, and Spencer was very prepared.

2013-08-10 09.45.20_small

The boy loves anything with wheels. Especially cars and bikes.

2013-08-09 14.57.00_small

Frustrating day at work, I guess.

2013-08-08 21.41.28_small

Cornhole faces. He is too adorable.

2013-08-08 10.13.05_small

Green smoothies are a daily occurrence now. Spence loves them!

2013-08-07 20.30.55-1_small

The joys of being a dad.

2013-08-07 17.55.03-2_small

Seriously, child? I don’t even know how this happened.

2013-08-07 17.35.44_small

Just chatting it up with penguin.

2013-08-07 13.44.01_small

He is a great helper around the house while we do chores.

2013-08-06 21.57.18_small

We had a fun dinner/dessert night with Paul and Lindsey. They don’t work at DrivingSales anymore, so we don’t see them much. Lindsey is pregnant, and we are thrilled for them!

2013-08-05 17.55.56_small

Peterson’s is the place to shop. Spencer loves driving!

2013-08-05 17.39.26_small

Sweet squinty-eyed boy.

2013-08-05 12.15.19_small

Chillaxin’ at the library after we got our free summer reading program book.

2013-08-04 16.53.13_small

Making some chicken parmesan. Yum. I enjoy cooking, most nights.
