Camping at Grassy Lake

This was Jack's first camping trip that he remembers (we went to Yellowstone when he was 2 but he doesn't recall...), and Peyton's first ever. They had a blast, mainly because it was so muddy and they got to be crazy dirty for 3 days and it was ok. We had a great time hanging out with family, roasting marshmallows, fishing, and relaxing.

Zoo, part 1

We just got a zoo pass and have gone a few times lately. The first time we went with my Mom and Dad, two sisters and their kids, Tanner and Ibon (my Mom's Spanish exchange student). Zoorasic Park is going on now and Jack was LOVING it. He was a little bummed, though, when he discovered a wire behind a dinosaur and said they were tricking us :)

Girls Weekend!

On May 13-15th, my Mom and sisters (Hilary, Lynlee, and Jill) went to Boise for a much-needed girls getaway. We ate lots of yummy food, played games, ran a 5k, and best of all saw Wicked! It was such a great weekend, I love me some girl time!

We went to Mesquite with some of our very favorite people (Nick and Tabitha) back in April. My parents watched the kids for us and it was so great to get away and just relax for a couple days. We had a great time and can't wait to go back!

All done!!

Josh graduated with his Masters from USU on May 6th. It was such a great day and we are so proud of him :) It was an emotional day for me because I am so thankful for my hardworking, dedicated husband who worked relentlessly for this achievement. Also because it's been such a long road and I am grateful it is finally over!

Big Girl Bed

We just set up Peyton's new big girl bed and she LOVES it! She keeps running into her room and shouting "Big girl bed!" and then laying down. She's growing up so fast!

Why do I do dumb things?

My Mom was visiting the Reeds for the weekend in RS a while ago, so we had my Dad and Tanner over for Sunday dinner. I was opening a bag of salad (with a large bread knife cause why wouldn't you??) and cut my finger wide open right as they got here. It was bleeding so bad that we couldn't tell how deep it was, but I hate going to the Dr so I told everyone I was fine and just wrapped it up.

After putting it off through dinner, Josh and my Dad MADE me go to Instacare just in case. It was actually good that my Dad was here so he could watch the kids while we went. Turns out it wasn't bad at all and they just glued it shut, but you couldn't tell that by the gigantic bandage they put on it!

The Dr was really funny and told us salad injuries are the #1 injury they see around there :) When we got back to the house, Peyton had fallen asleep on the couch - now I'm thinking my Dad should babysit more often!

My Lil 'Sweet P'

Peyton will be 2 next month (crazy!) and she is definitely acting like a typical 2 year old. She wants to do everything by herself and lets you know when she's not getting what she wants. She is talking so much and learning what seems like a million new things everyday. She is such a character :)

As I said before, she LOVES to wear my shoes. My closet is basically her favorite place at the moment. This is the outfit she put together the other day, complete with one of my necklaces. I think I have a little fashonista on my hands!

I got her some cereal the other day and went upstairs for a minute. When I came back down she was eating it with one of my mixing spoons. I don't think she got much in her mouth, but she was sure trying!
