Can kids tell the future???

The past few days Gavin has been making me extremely nervous. I'm not sure he knows something we don't know but he has been asking me constantly, "Mommy my baby sister." "Where my baby sister?" Every time he says that it makes me want to run out and get a pregnancy test, does he see something we don't?

Last night at my Mom and Dad's house I found my old doll and was showing it to Gavin. As we were getting ready for bed he layed down on my lap and said, "I need baby sister" and went and grabbed my doll and held her. He made sure she was comfy and got her to sleep. It was so dang cute, but it really makes me nervous!!!!

The long hot days of summer caused me to break down and get the shaving cream out. Gav wasn't too sure about the idea, but once I got my hands involved he loved it. We wrote our names, gave high fives, and made lots of messes. It was a blast! Love you Gav Man!!

4th of July fun

I love the Fourth of July it is by far my favorite holiday! This year we went to both Salina and Gunnison and were able to see 2 sets of fireworks which made the holiday complete. Gavin wasn't too sure of fireworks and parades, but I think deep down he had fun.

We did sparklers with him in Salina and he hated them. He kept saying, "It scary mom it scary." I think the Aurora fireworks scared him to death but it was fun making memories.

My sisters Britney, Hillary and me sporting the red, white, and blue. We all agree that the fourth of July is the best!

Waiting for the parade to start.

Our little monkey bouncing at the Gunnison festivities,

This was Gavin's idea of catching candy in Gunnison. He hated the parade so he stayed back with daddy and caught up with family.

On Sunday, the 4th, Carl and I left Gavin with Grandma and Grandpa and took a little get away to Logan. We stayed at the Anniversay Inn and had a great time. We planned on going to the temple but on Tuesday morning we called Britney to see if she knew what time sessions started. She checked the internet and started laughing...the temple was closed for maintenence. At least we could laugh about it, but that really was the whole reason for going to Logan. Next time we'll check before going. We went to Eclipse and I have to admit I am still team Edward and of course Carl is team Alice. At least we both had something good to look at during the movie:)

Our first night we stayed in the Biker's Roadhouse which we loved. It is by far our favorite room with pinball, pool, hotdogs, sodas, and our favorite the motorcycle.

Our second night we stayed in Juliet's Balcony. This is looking down from the balcony at the tub. I loved the tub this is how I want my future bathroom!

After climbing the walls, jumping over the tub, racing up 17 stairs and sliding into place all within 10 seconds, Carl and I were able to get a picture of the two of us on the balcony. I had so much fun and loved being able to relax for a few days. Thanks to our parents for watching Gavin so we didn't have to worry about him while we were away! And thank you Carl for a great get away. He really knows how to surprise me and I am so grateful for him. He is the best husband in the world! I love you!!!

Gavin Turns 2

I love this little man! It's amazing how such a little package
can fill such a big space in your heart!


It's so hard to believe that you are already two. It seems like only yesterday you were born and now you are growing up right before my eyes. You have such a great personality and I just love watching you grow and learn new things. I know you will grow into a handsome young man and I want you to know I love you with all my heart!
Love, Mommy
P.S. I'm not the reason for his owie on the head, he fell off a bike at
grandma and grandpa anderson's house.

All Gav's cousins were so excited to help him blow out his candles and he loved the attention.

At Grandma and Grandpa Brown's house celebrating. Great Grandpa Wanlass loved the birthday cake...he is a farmer and loves John Deere too.

Gav couldn't wait to lick the frosting off his tractors.

Yummy frosting!
