Terrific Tuesday's are Back!

Aquarium (pet store in Sandy)
Last week Cali joined us with baby Oakland. She mentioned there was this pet store we could go and see the animals. It was AWESOME! So many reptiles and fish to see.

Baby Oakland with her amazing mom, our sister-in-law Cali.

We asked one of the employee's if they would get a turtle out to hold. He said "this turtle would get up to be 100 lbs". I asked "where in the world do you house a turtle that big?" He said "in the back yard in a dog house".

Next we wanted to visit our nephew/cousin Baby Mac, so we stop at the store to pick up some flowers. Brock and Bryson saw this ride (luckily I had a few quarters), they loved it! We should have just called this Terrific Tuesday, we could not get them off it. Brock was so happy he was doing this head jerk dance that was hilarious. .50 and they were in heaven.

We thought it would be fun to take the boys to the Airport to see the planes take off. They loved it.

There was this sand hill they played on. Noticed I spelled "Broks" name wrong. Silly me.

Brock doing what he loves to do.

After, we went to surprise our mom at work. She is a school teacher. When we walked in her class Brock wanted to be just like the other kids, he wanted to sit and color.

This goose loves food as much as Brock. I didn't get the shot but the goose bit Brock trying to get his food. Geese scare me.

This is the coolest tree ever! Lots of nook and crannies to go through.

All that Brock has on his mind is food. If you ever want him to do something, just pull out something to eat, he will be your best friend. He gets into this daze when he is eating, look at his face.

If you don't know by now, Brock loves getting dirty. He could careless about his clothes, and to tell you the truth I could careless too. I love watching him and his energy. He is a boy who needs to get into things.

A Day with Baby Oakland

Last Thursday I had the most pleasurable opportunity to watch my niece Oakland and nephew Bryson for the day. I was so excited and so was Brock. Here are the fun events that took place...

Brock and Bryson see quite a bit of one another, so when my brother brought Oakland into the mix she was like a shiny new toy. They literally laid like this and talked, kissed, touched and made funny noises to her for a good hour. She didn't seem to mind the attention of two boys:) It was pretty darn cute.

Brock spent the most time with Oakland. He hug, kissed and wanted to hold her all the time. I learned that Brock has a sweet soft side to him, don't let him fool you. He is going to be a great big brother some day.

The 3 of them watching The Jungle Book.

The boys were getting restless so we bundled up and went for a walk outside.

Tummy Time!
I guess I forgot how much babies drool and spit up. It's only been 2 years and I totally forgot. So needless to say all the outfits Cali and Josh packed got soaked with drool. I ended up doing a load of wash for little Oakland. It was a fun field day. It makes me so excited to expand our family with a little baby again. All in due time.
Thanks Cali and Josh for having to go to work so I could enjoy your sweet baby:)

Happy Easter

Happy Easter from ME!

Brock's first time coloring Easter Eggs. He was very excited.

He did a really good job. His favorite part was mixing the dye's together.

All done! Pretty.

Our cute neighbor put together a Easter Egg hunt in her back yard. It was really cold, but so much fun to see all the kids go crazy.
I had to take a picture of some of our primary CTR 5 class. Colby, Stockton and Preston. We love teaching these boys.

All the kids in the neighborhood and their EXCITED!

The first egg Brock found. When he found an egg he would open it, dump all the candy in the bucket and throw the egg on the ground. He knew what he was after. It was fun to watch him.

Me and Daddy.

Look what Brock got.
Thanks Jennifer for the great time.

A little sugar rush was all he needed. I thought he would be up for hours, instead he took a 3 1/2 hour nap! It was awesome!

Did I do That?
