AJ vs The Binky

AJ can't quite get the hang of "the binky" although he does a good job of not quite letting it escape!

Shawn said that AJ smiled at him a while ago . . . I didn't believe it. I tried to get him to smile at me. Then, Ryan said that AJ was staring at him and smiled . . . I doubted it was a "real smile". But I still tried to get him to smile at me. Then AJ smiled at LaFonda (my boss) while staring at her from across my desk. I tried extremely hard to get him to smile at me. I wished that he would look right at me and grin. Wish granted! He started smiling at everyone now. Alex loves it, Ryan says it is "very cute" and Nick is constantly three inches away from his face. What a big smile he has to share with the world.

4th of July 2009

The Fourth of July weekend is a busy time at Pepsi, so the boys and I headed to Kimberly and left Shawn home to work, work, work. We were very excited to go and it made the trip much more exciting once we discovered that Brian & Molly AND Kallee & Ashley were also going to be there.

We had a great weekend! We left Friday morning. I was a bit nervous to drive with FOUR kids by myself, but it was fine. Ryan was a huge help with the baby and the drive went smoothly. We met the family for lunch in Twin Falls at . . . . . Papa Kelseys (where else would we think to go?). We spent the rest of the day just spending time with the cousins and rest of the family. It was fun to finally meet the newest member of the "Andrew Family" with Brian & Molly's new baby - Bailee Lynn. She is very cute. We had a backyard barbeque despite a bit of wind. The boys had such a great time with their cousins. There was a lot of contagious energy in the air and Grandpa & Grandma graciously smile and let the kids pretty much run wild around their house. You may want to check out Kallee & Ashley's blog to see the video of the "stair sliding" which Grandpa even participated in!

Saturday was also so much fun. Ryan & Alex went to a movie with Grandpa, Kallee, & Ashley. Nick, AJ, Grandma, & I visited the new Walmart in Twin Falls. We didn't buy much, just a box of popsicles. We went to CSI later that evening to listen to the band and watch fireworks. It was a pretty good firework show. Nick LOVED it! He was jumping up and down with excitement. AJ was not such a huge fan of the fireworks. He was screaming (I was sure the people around us wanted to strangle me). He finally fell asleep as we were walking back to the car. I was afraid someone was going to end up carrying Alex, but he toughed it out and made it back to the car although he repeatedly said how "very very tired" he was. We left Sunday morning to drive back home. We were excited to get back home and see Shawn.

Zac, Logan, and Hayden went to visit Grandpa & Grandma for a week. They decided to take a day to come and visit us too. We loved having them come.
