Baby, Baby, Baby

It seems like lately everyone I know is having a baby.

One of my oldest friends Krystal, had her second baby last month. I was able to go and visit her and her new baby Kameron last Tuesday. He is an adorable baby. He's got all the super cute chunky rolls that babies should have. Krystal is an amazing mother to both Kameron and Brianna. She is so patient and loving and I look up to her in so many ways. She is exactly the kind of mother I want to be. Krys you know when I have my first kid I'm going to be on the phone with you everyday for advise :) Congrats on your new little guy.

My friend Anne and her hubby Mike are expecting their first baby in November. I'm sooo excited for Anne. Anne is one of my best friends and although we haven't known each other as long as I have known some of my other friends, we are so close. She and I just clicked from the beginning. She was in my wedding and I was in hers. I love her to death and I know that she and Mike are going to be great parents. I can't wait to meet little Evie (Evelyn)! November seems too far away.

Two of Taylor's cousins also recently became parents and one of my friends from high school is expecting. With all these babies around its got me thinking..... Is it our turn???? Not quite!! But congrats to everyone and their new babies.

Feeling A Little Redneck

Roman with all the trucks. Look at his cute ear plugs. They barely fit in his ears.

This truck had spinner rims!

Roman riding the cars at the carnival.

Last Saturday Taylor and I spent the evening feeling a little redneck. We took our friend's little boy Roman to see the Monster truck show. His sister Regan got to spend the night at our house a couple weeks earlier and he had been dying for his turn to do something fun with Taylor and myself. We decided we would take him to see the monster truck show and then he would get to come spend the night with us. We actually ended up having a lot of fun. There was even a carnival outside the stadium and we were able to ride some rides before going in to see the show. Roman loved watching the trucks race and trying to decide who was going to be the winner. He is an adorable little boy and always says something to make you laugh. When we got back to the house I asked him if he wanted to watch "Ninja Turtles" and he said "Yeah cause that's how I rolly roll." Where do they come up with these things? Here are just a few pics from our night.

Sleeps Like A Person

Seriously!! Head on the pillow, under the covers, need I say more?? Adorable!!

Coach Riley!!

The time has come!! Taylor and Brandon are coaching again. They have the same team that they had last year at Hillcrest. It's really fun to see all of the kids and parent's coming back this year. They all know that Taylor and Brandon have really turned this team around and are so appreciative that Taylor is coaching. They are such a nice group of kids and parents. We really couldn't ask for a better team and support system. All of the moms are extra supportive of me. They all know that I have no kids on the team and no real reason to put so much of our time into this. They tell me all the time that they are grateful that I not only let Taylor coach this team but that I come out as much as I can to support them. Let's go Huskies!!! It's going to be a fun year.

Down on the Farm

This is a PIG!!!

Grandma and Grandpa's House

Taylor and had the opportunity to fly up to Washington and spend a few days on his grandparent's farm. His mom's family was having a family reunion because his uncle Joe, who lives in Australia, had come home for a few weeks. I really enjoy Taylor's mom's side of the family. Most of them live in other states so we don't get to see them very often. It was really cool to have everyone together for the first time since Taylor's uncle Jim past away 8 years ago. Taylor's grandma even turned to me at the family reunion and said "can you believe that two people created all of this?" Taylor's grandparents had 9 kids so you can imagine it's a pretty big family. We were actually able to surprise his mom. She thought that we couldn't get the time off of work and was sooo surprised to see us when we drove up to the farm. She came out crying and gave us a huge hug. She was so excited to see her baby boy. It had been over a year since we had seen his mom and little sister and we were over due for a visit. While I learned that I am no way cut out for farm life it was still a nice little vacation. Here are a few pics from the farm.

4th of July

Ok I know I'm way behind but I have a fairly good excuse. First July was just crazy busy for us and second, the power cord for our lap top is broken and it's not very fun trying to get this thing to charge once it dies.

We spent the 4th of July this year at my aunt Michelle's. We just hung out with friends and family. Our good friends Brandon and Kendra came over with their little munchkins. We had tons of fun lighting all of our fireworks. Here are just a few picks of the kids and Taylor. They loved helping him pick out which fireworks to light off next.
