Our crazy life

We have been busy around here but I thought I would just make a quick post with some cute pictures for you all to enjoy. Vance started soccer last week and he loves it. Kael is of course walking now and just enjoying life. We have been working hard to get our yard under control before spring hits too hard and that has involved a lot of cutting and trimming. So enjoy these pictures of our cute boys.

Dinner with Curtis' Uncle Lynn and Aunt Heather when they came down here to visit their cousins in Greeley. It was so much fun thanks you guys!

Being really helpful.
And all the tree scattered about the yard. But now we have some firewood for an emergency, even though it isn't much it is there.

Showing us the "Thumbs up" he was so excited.
Gearing up to save the goal.
Running and having fun.

PS. His coach reminds me of my dad in so many ways. It cracks me up everytime I talk to him. LOVE YOU DAD!

What is it?

So I am sure you have all been dying to know what we are having and today we finally found out. After 21 weeks of waiting and praying we found out today that we are having a boy! That is right boy numero tres! I can't believe we are going to have three sons! Crazy the way life goes. So for all of you out there that were hoping for a girl sorry but not this one. We are really excited for this little one to come. Although Vance is a little heartbroken that he won't get a baby sister but he will be happy when he has another little buddy to play with. All is going well. The baby and I are both strong and healthy. Moving right along! Our due date is August 16th, yikes for a summer baby! Anyway that is our good news.

On a side note, however just as important as the above, Kael starting walking yesterday. I mean really walking. He has been kind of debating whether or not to let us see him for several weeks now and yesterday he just went. A video will soon follow this post but I thought I would post it anyway so I wouldn't forget this momentous occasion. Love you all!

Happy Easter!

Our family enjoyed a very fun Easter this year. On Friday our Community Center had an Aquatic Easter Egg Hunt and we signed Vance up to go and participate. He was so excited to swim for one thing but got even more excited when he got to see the "Brother" and "Sister" Easter Bunnies, according to him. We had a fun time gathering eggs in the pool. Mom was trying to keep us all afloat because Daddy had to stay a little later at the clinic so he was very sad he missed Vance getting the eggs but he say us get to play in the pool afterward. We decided to have our Easter on Saturday to try and make Sunday all about the Savior and so we asked special permission from the Easter Bunny to have our baskets brought then and he graciously agreed. Vance came down from his quiet time and immediately saw his basket hidden behind the couch. He was so excited about his shovel because now he can help mommy and daddy in the back yard. He also got sunglasses, a kite, a rubber duck, and a new shirt to match brother. Of course there was candy and he loved that too. Kael slept for a long time and didn't see his basket until after dinner, hence the diaper attire. He also got a kite, rubber duck, sunglasses, a new shirt and he got bubbles as well. Vance and Daddy had a fun Easter Egg hunt in the front yard while Mommy stayed inside with the sleeping boy. Vance insisted on hiding some eggs and having Curtis find them. He thought it was great. We enjoyed a nice dinner of Biscuits and Gravy, Curtis' favorite. The boys loved it! Sunday was a wonderful day. We dressed in our Easter Sunday colors and went to the Church house to watch Conference with some members of the ward. The boys did great and it was a different experience watching it in the chapel in your sunday clothes. What a wonderful Conference we had. Vance was excited that he knew a few of the songs the choir sang this weekend. Anyway, we hope you all had as wonderful a weekend as we did. We love and miss you all! Enjoy our pictures.
