Pretend City

Last Friday we went to Pretend City with Hazel! (also my mom and Lacey were there)
Friday was a rainy day too!  Thank goodness we are finally getting some rain here.

This place is really cool.  There is a whole village set up for kids to play and everything is just the right size for 1 to 5 year olds.  There is a grocery store, stage, farm, fire station, house... the list goes on and on.

The kids had a really really fun time.
Brace yourself for LOTS and LOTS of PHOTOS
(there is your warning)

 He couldn't let go of the blue hoe.


 Button pushing just happens to be Emmett's favorite game!

 Hazel is showing him how to do it.
 Standing while driving is never safe lol.

 We helped them build a house.
 Cooking up a storm.
 Whip those eggs!
 Hazel is the cutest!
 Emmett won for most water splashed on other people.  (sorry everyone, he is that kid)
 Hazel caught the most sea creatures.

 Paging Doctor Torrens...

After pretend city we all went to lunch.

Mothers Day 2015

Yesterday was my second Mothers Day.  It was such a nice day spent with my mom and Emmett.  Grant got me flowers and he fixed the front door threshold for my gift!  I am so happy that front door is finally fixed, such a great gift!

My mom came over and we went to the gem fair.  I only got $10 worth of beads, mostly just some beads to make bracelets for myself.  We then went to lunch at Fashion Island.  It was a really nice day out, especially by the beach.  Grant was busy doing his own thing lol as usual, I think he likes to have time to himself since he is working all week.


 Here are the beautiful flowers Grant got me.

 Mothers day morning, wearing our Christmas pajamas hahahhaa


 We enjoyed watching the Koi Fish
 Emmett just wanted to get down and then when he was down he wanted up lol.
 My mom and I worked on her scrap book.
 Beads!
 Also Thank you to Teresa Long for the beautiful photos of Emmett!

Bonneville 200 MPH Party

 Yesterday was the Bonneville 200 MPH Club Party.  It was great to have the whole gang back together.  The lunch was catered by Pie and Burger, and I have to say they make the best burger I have ever eaten!  The pie was delicious too!






Its too bad we don't all go to Bonneville any more because it was always such a fun time!
I guess it just reminds you to savor the fun times and live in the moment.

Emmett 14 Months

I haven't done an Emmett update in a while and I love to look back and see what he was doing as time goes on.  Emmett is now 14 and a half months old.  He is a busy busy kid, but also content to play on his own.

Favorite Toys
  • Play kitchen 
  • Play guitar
  • Little bag with a zipper (he walks around zipping and unzipping the bag)
  • Books
I like to do the shape game with him, where you put the different shapes into the bucket.  We also do the stack the rings game and the stack the cups game.  I have found its better to play these games together or all the pieces are lost and he doesn't get that its a game lol.

Favorite Foods
  • Oatmeal with pureed fruit (for breakfast)
  • Toast
  • Peanut butter and jelly
  • egg salad sandwich
  • Swedish meatballs
  • spaghetti 
  • apple sauce
  • yogurt
He eats almost everything, but doesn't seem to like chicken fingers or fish sticks, I am sure that will change with time.  I remember when he was younger and wouldn't drink his bottle and I would think to myself I can't wait till he can just eat a sandwich, now that that day is here I am so happy how much easier it is.

Favorite Activities
  • Loves swimming
  • loves water and baths
  • Loves to dance and listen to music
  • Loves running outside
  • Loves going for rides in the laundry basket
  • Loves going in his tricycle
  • loves climbing up the stairs (not going down )
  • Loves watering the garden with Grandma
 Saying
  • DADA
  • MAMA
  • apple
  • Yeah
  • PAPA
  • all done
  • all gone
  • cookie
  • cracker
  • num num
He says quite a lot, but he understands hundreds of words, and no matter what you ask he says yeah in response hahhaha.
 
Our typical day at home goes like this; wake up at 630ish have breakfast right away, he plays on his own while I have my breakfast, Nap around 9am to 10 or 11.  Lunch at 11 to 12, playing till around 2.  Napping again around 2 or 3 for about an hour.  Wake up and play more, get super excited about dada coming home and dinner around 5pm.  Sleeping for the night by 8pm sometimes by 7pm.

Also because he is so big/tall people think he is much older than he really is.  I had someone ask if he was 3 hahhha!  He is larger than some 2 year olds and I think that is why people are surprised when he doesn't talk to them.  He wears 18 to 24 month clothes, but like his dad he is thin so he is still wearing 9 to 12 month pants hahaha.

Wedding Weekend T&S

 Friday was our friends Sean and Teresa's Wedding.  The wedding was at Padua hills theatre.  The most beautiful setting that a wedding could take place.  The ceremony took place outside under lots of beautiful lighted trees.  The bride looked beautiful and the groom looked handsome.  They wrote their own vows which made the ceremony very emotional.  We didn't get any pictures of the bride and groom because they asked us not to, but I did get some video! 








 The dancing was lots of fun and the food was delicious!




We had an excellent time and I would like to say an extra huge THANK YOU to Betty for watching Emmett.  As much as we love to have baby time all the time, its also nice to have a break!
