Ruffle Fluff!

Paige is in love with this pettiskirt made by my sister Cindy. She used 90 yards of ruffle fluff. The result is a super twirling skirt that makes Paige look like something our of Finding Nemo. She looks like an anemone on the trampoline. Paige is just getting into the whole dress-up thing so it took her about a day to figure out how fun it is to twirl. She is so adorable!

Tyson's Blessing

Yesterday was Tyson's special day. We had a great day with family and friends. He is so adorable. We feel so blessed to have him in our family. He has such a happy disposition. He hardly cries and he sleeps great at night. I love his smiles. Sometimes I watch tv while I'm feeding him a bottle, then I'll look down and he is just sitting there smiling at me and not eating. Cutest thing.

I love this picture with his little tongue sticking out. Daddy was a big help holding him up behind the backdrop.

I made a point to get a picture of just him and us. I know that by the third kid, pictures usually include siblings. I am trying to make sure I get lots of shots of him by himself too.

The blessing circle. How fortunate to have so many grandpas that could participate.

Tyson discovers the chimes

When I had Preston, my sister Cindy told me I HAD to get these chimes for the play gym. It has been fun watching each child discover that they can kick and make sounds. Tyson will lay there kicking and smiling for ten minutes or more. He loves it. He is starting to reach for the other toys as well. I need to find my baby toys now!

Flyin to Powell for the weekend

In February, Greg spent some time working at the boat show. The goal was to network with other people who love this sport and get them to join our group here in Utah. He sold a ski to a guy that mentioned he wanted to fly Greg down to Lake Powell to give him lessons. We thought it sounded great, but ski season was a ways away. Sure enough, Greg got a call a few weeks ago. They worked it out to go down this last weekend.

This is the private airplane Greg got to fly down on. Flight time was just over an hour. He couldn't believe that in the same time it takes to drive to Springville, he was in Lake Powell. On the flight home, he sat up front. He said it was one of THE COOLEST things he has done.

They stayed on the guy's houseboat at Hall's Crossing. Greg ran into some other foilers from Colorado as well as an old neighbor. Small world. He was living high.

They spent all day Saturday on the water. Greg was teaching for almost 8 hours straight. There were three couples that he taught. He also rode three times that day. What a long, hard day. I didn't feel that bad for him.

What a cool weekend. It is crazy that people have that kind of money. But hey, if you can't have it yourself, enjoy someone else's right? Of course, Greg had a wonderful time and hopes to go again. It was such a unique opportunity. I just wish I could go down with him. Maybe next year when the baby is older and I'm not nursing. Meanwhile, we have our clinic this Saturday. Hope we get a good turn out.
