For fun

Animal Sounds- It's very rare that I can get him to do all of the animals in a row so I was thrilled that I caught this. I'm so mad though that I forgot to have him do the fishy. It's my favorite, I don't know how I forgot that!

This was the other night at dinner. So funny.

Warning- Extremely long post with lots of pictures!

So, "catching up" after a month has gone by is becoming something of a habit. Here's what we've been up to...

Check out that stance. Boston loves his bat and ball, well actually anything that resembles a bat, a golf club, stick, a pen,a fork, anything he can swing. Brett isn't proud of this at all.

4th of July. We went to something called the "culd-a-sac of fire". Brett's parents neighbors put on this production of sorts that is kind of a spoof on the stadium of fire. It was pretty good. They had dancers, singers, the "Bonus brothers" (these kids dressed up as the jonas brothers- funny), and fireworks.


Liberty Land=waste of some investor's money. haha. If you live in Utah County you've probably seen Liberty Land from the freeway. We went there on a Saturday night... no joke we were the only people there. Kinda sad because there is potential there. They actually have some cute little rides for kids, and it's bigger than it looks from the freeway, its just slightly ghetto. But whatever, we still had fun. Check it out sometime. It's good cheap entertainment for the kids.


Love how this picture makes it look like I tried to squeeze onto this ride all by myself. I didn't even come close to fitting but Boston wasn't big enough to go by himself, so I had to hang my leg out the side, haha.
Our friend Chanel had the cutest baby boy last week and we took her kids for a couple of days. We took them up to Park City with us. They had fun, went to see their baby brother, played a lot of Wii, went swimming, watched movies and laughed at Shane a lot. Love these boys. They do have a lot of energy and I was tired after chasing around 3 boys but it was worth it. They were good and I got lots of hugs and laughs.


I can't believe that Boston almost fits the entire length of his playpen already. How the heck did he get so big?! I swear it wasn't that long ago that he looked like he would get lost in there!
Daxon and Shane..."watch this cool trick!"
Kisses! This dog was a saint. Boston was pretty much making out with him, putting his hand in his mouth, his fingers up his nose.. maybe he was patient because he was also being fed bites of doughnut?
I love this, because I realize that I'll be watching tee ball, little league and maybe high school ball before I know it.
Its been a fun month. I love summer. Boston is getting so fun. He understands a lot more now and is getting a little better at communicating. He can say Daddy and Mama well now. He does lots of animal sounds (dinosaur, duck, cow, dog, elephant, horse, fishy, bear, snake, and anything with wheels says "vroom, vroom!")He says, ball of course, bat, shoes, wow, hi, ba-ba, koda, fishy, hot (a candle is a "hot" and any kind of food is always hot), what's that, who's that, uh-oh and I can't remember anything else right now. He loves the water which is fun and scary. He will jump right in with no hesitation. He loves taking a bath and asks to take one several times a day by turning the water on and trying to climb in. Loves his bat and ball, this is all he really wants to do. He wakes up and looks for his bat and can spend a long time in the family room just hitting the ball. He does have quite the swing for a one year old. He loves to watch Dora too. I don't. But he will bring me the remote and then try to climb up on my bed so he can watch. This is nice when I'm trying to get ready, he'll sit there the whole time . He loves his daddy! When Brett leaves in the morning Boston stands by the door and yells "Hey! Daddy! Daddy! (daddy sounds like da-yee, love it). He likes to watch ESPN with Brett. He knows his routine at night, get a ba-ba, go get on the couch and watch highlights with dad while drinking it. He goes over and turns on the TV and then crawls up on the couch and says "ball, ball" while pointing to the TV. This means he wants to see the highlights for that day. haha. Anyway, this super long paragraph is mostly for my personal journaling purposes. :) To sum it up we love him and can't imagine life with out him.
