Grandma's Birthday

Today is my mom's Birthday, Morgan loves her grandma, so we made this picture and video. Hope you enjoy too!

We did it!

Danny and I ran the 10 miler on Saturday thanks to our friends Hillary and Kyle for watching Morgan in the wee hours of the morning. It was hard, it was harder than I thought, and I am really nervous for the half.... hopefully i can train better for it.

Jimmer me Timbers!

My friend Hallie gave me a call and asked if we could do Jimmer shirts.... of course. Loved making them, because I love Jimmer (and Danny). I also just had to add Jimmer to the dictionary... for spell check.

Happy 26th Birthday Danny

Danny turned 26 on Sunday March 20th. Since it was a sunday we spent a nice slow day together. I woke up and made buttermilk pancakes with strawberries and whipping creme. Then after a nice church meeting, Danny and Morgan look a nap. Then we made a homemade cake recipe danny loves. We went home teaching together which I always find fun. Then we had a wonderful meal that Danny ended up making (he was hungry and I was working on the cake). We love chicken baked in creme with potatoes and corn. After dinner we were able to have cake, but before we ate Morgan and I sang happy birthday to daddy. We have been practicing for a month now, so it was fun to hear her sing it.

This year has been really good to us. We really appreciate our daddy and danny and the hard work he does for us. A few highlights of his 25th year are: 1. He got into Dental School 2. He got into Dental School and 3. He got into Dental School. 4. He ran his first 10 k and finished in 55 minutes. 5. He moved his family across the country. 6. He has a really cool wife and daughter.

We just love danny so much he is so wonderful and makes us so happy each and every day!
Here is a video of morgan singing to daddy!

** just in case you were wondering why there is a 2 on the cake, I couldn't find the other candles and since he was turning 26, that is half of the correct numbers.** Next year I will not forget to buy new candles.

I love Canada

Thomas and Morgan with Great Papa and Grandma
Baby charlie is just adorable

Morgan loved the snow, she would jump in it, run in it, and shovel it.

This picture shows just how much she liked it!

They loved their tubs

I was able to go to canada for 2 wks to work and spend time with my family. It was a blast and Morgan LOVED being with her grandma and papa and devynn. Thomas and Morgan were always together, they loved the bath and shower in my parents room. They asked for multiple showers a day.

Did I mention it was freezing when we got there? It was -18 degrees c. and it snowed for the first few days we were there. It warmed up just as we were leaving but the snow gave our kids the chance to play in it and shovel.

Celebrating 4 Years

I cannot believe that Brynn and I have been married for 4 years. It's an interesting paradigm, because it seems like time has flown by so fast, yet I can't really remember life before having Brynn in my life. Brynn and I had planned to go on a vacation together at the end of March, but since that fell through, we had some money to blow on a fun anniversary weekend. Since I usually plan these types of things, Brynn decided to take the reigns this year. She did an awesome job, and we had an absolute blast together. I took Friday off of work, so Brynn came and picked me up on Thursday after work and we drove to an awesome bed and breakfast just across the Ohio River in Indiana. This was our first B & B experience and it didn't disappoint. They had hot cookies waiting for us, which was nice since we had just come in from a torrential rain storm. We quickly got ready and headed out the door for dinner. Brynn had done exhaustive research to find the best restaurant in Louisville. Every website, every blog, every article pointed straight to Corbett's. It's a restaurant that has been fashioned out of an old plantation style home. It is gorgeous inside and out and the food receives rave reviews. About an hour later, we realized that we had a case of the emperor's new clothes on our hands. When you pay that much for a meal, I think people feel foolish for saying anything other than that the food was amazing. We enjoyed the experience none the less and would have been disappointed had we not gone at least once while in Louisville. When the waiter asked if we wanted a desert menu, we looked out the window and saw a Graeter's Ice Cream across the street and said, "Check Please!" Check your local grocery stores for this stuff. Graeter's is the most incredible ice cream around, and they just barely started shipping it out all across the county. Before that, you could only get it in Ohio and Kentucky. It was still raining like crazy when we left, so after eating ice cream and getting soaked in the rain, we ran back to the B & B and hopped in the jacuzzi and watched a movie together. Needless to say, the night was improving. The next day was amazing. We just hung out together. We went to the warehouse which is a few miles outside of town where they have a clearance center. Unfortunately that was a bust, but we had fun anyways. On our way back home, we stopped off at Papalino's Pizza, a NY style pizzeria that we have been wanting to try since we got here. Luckily the real deal matched the awesome reviews on this one. With full stomachs and time to burn, we both agreed it was nap time. Those of you without kids may think that is a waste of time during a short weekend getaway. Just wait. When we woke up, we once again went shopping. After finding some good buys, we hit up BJs for dinner and a pizookie (a hot pizza like cookie with ice cream on top, mmmm!) Finally, our awesome weekend was rounded out the next morning when we ran a 5K together, finishing the race in just under 26 minutes. We finished the race, and pretty much just kept on running (one to beat the traffic, and two because we couldn't wait to go get Morgan). Ryan and Ashley Baker were awesome enough to watch Morgan. She was kind of in shock when she saw us, but it didn't take long for her to be her normal crazy self. We then had the Bakers over for a BBQ and we watched BYU destroy San Diego State. The perfect ending to a perfect weekend. Thanks again Brynn! I love you so much and look forward to many more anniversaries to come.

Dinner at Corbett's

Our awesome Bed & Breakfast

Breakfast. Sorry about the lighting.

I always write Brynn a poem for out anniversary and it is so fun to watch her get nervous in the days leading up to it, hoping that I won't forget. I have to say, this may have been my best yet.
