Well hello, I haven't updated my blog in forever and thought while Tripp is taking a nap I might as well do so. It seems like a lot of stuff has been going on with us we have had a ton of fun the past couple of months we have been of fun vacation's, spent tons of time swimming, boating,playing outside and spent lots of time with family. Tripp is just growing up way to fast he has lost that baby look and is now a toddler. He is so much fun he has the funniest little personality he is a such a sweet heart. He is a mama's boy and I love it. We have so much fun together, some of our funnest days are spent at home playing around we read book's and turn up music real loud and dance around the house he stomps his feet to the music and bob's his head while he looks up at me in amusement. He is so full of life and is generally a very happy little boy. He hasn't been feeling all that well this last week and it breaks my heart I don't like to see him so sad. He has been getting fevers every 3 weeks for about four months now and he was diagnosed with pfapa which is fancy for periodic fevers it is not contagious and nothing scary just uncomfortable for the little guy. I just love him so much he is my life. I love my little family so much and am so grateful for them. Here is an update on what we have been up to.
Tripp on Easter Sunday
Took a trip to St. George for jord's family reunion.
Sar and I ran our first half marathon. We did it in 2 hours 20 mins. Not super fast but we never stopped running, so we were pretty proud of ourselves. I am going to miss my running partner :(

My brother Tyler joined the AirForce and left for training in Texas on the 28th of June.
It was really hard for me to see him go, he has always been my best friend and things will never be the same and it kills me. Him and Jordan has been best friends since High School so it has been really hard for Jord as well. I am so proud of him and Sar for what they are doing for all of us. It is not easy for either of them, they miss each other like crazy. He graduates the 25th of August and I can hardly wait to see him. I love you Ty and miss you everyday.
You are my HERO!!
We celebrated our 5th Anniversary! I can't believe how fast it has gone. I am so grateful to married to my best friend. He is such an amazing man, husband and father. I love him with all my heart. I can't wait to have many more amazing years together.

We spent an entire week in Lake Powell 3 days with Jord's Fam and 3 with mine. We had a blast. Tripp loved the water and playing on the beach. He slept for about 2 day's straight when we got home he was so exhausted.

See ya later Alligator!

Tripp was watching the disney channel the other day and they had Jennifer garner read this peom. I almost cried it is so sweet. So I thought I would share

Mother's Song

a Traditional Lullaby

(read by Jennifer Garner)

My heart is like a fountain true

That flows and flows with love to you.

As chirps the lark unto the tree

...So chirps my pretty babe to me.

There's not a rose where'er I seek,

As comely as my baby's cheek.

There's not a comb of honey-bee,

So full of sweets as babe to me.

There's not a star that shines on high,

Is brighter than my baby's eye.

There's not a boat upon the sea,

Can dance as baby does to me.

No silk was ever spun so fine

As is the hair of baby mine.

My baby smells more sweet to me

Than smells in spring the elder tree.

A little fish swims in the well,

So in my heart does baby dwell.

A little flower blows on the tree,

My baby is the flower to me.

Oh my goodness this weather we are having is so glorious it make me want scream. I am so ready for the warm weather. Me and Tripp got to escape the cold weather last month and go to California with my parents, Garr, Courtney and Brooke. We had a blast it was so much fun one of my highlights was that we ate at Ruby's a total of 4 times in 6 days oh I love that place I just can't get enough. We also went to the aquarium at long beach which Tripp loved he thought it was the beez knees, Then we went to Disney and had lots of fun there. Tripp absolutely loves Mickey mouse and Buzz lightyear so he thought it was pretty groovy. He got to meet mickey and give him a hug it was so adorable. Then the trip had to end and we came home to SNOW! Yuck! But the weather is defiantly improving now. Another fun thing is that it was Tripp's First Birthday on the 23rd. We had a little Birthday Party for him all of Jordans family and my family came. It was a lot of fun. Tripp loved all of his presents and LOVED his cake which I was very proud of because me and my mom whipped the little baby up ourselves. He was up until midnight though it was craziness he was not tired at all. So anyways that is what we have been up to and now we are in March. I love March, could it be because it is the month of my birthday. I think maybe. Well hope everything is well with all of your familys :)

I am so happy that January is finally over I don't hate very many things but I can honestly say that I hate January. I am so sick of winter I can't even stand it. I just want to go outside, go for a walk, a run anything that is outside. Me and Tripp are going to go crazy if we can't get out of this house soon and do something outside. Tripp has done a lot of changing he is getting so big I can't believe that he turns 1 this month. He now has six teeth, he walks allover the place, has the funniest personality and is really really good at making messes. I love these pictures he had just gotten done eating spaghetti and is a mess but he was being so funny.
