This is a long one with lots of pictures and videos. :)

Peyt in the jumper. She didn't love this thing as much as Boston did, but we caught her on a good night in this video.

We drove down to Vegas for Mountain West tournament. Brett and my brother Jordan went to all the BYU games and the kids and I hung out around town with the crazies and in the hotel room a lot. We got a little cabin fever but it was a fun trip.

Bored in the Hotel room. We all sat in the bathroom and watched Peyt talk to herself in the mirror. She is so cute I can hardly stand it.

This was a slightly forced memory. It was still a little chilly but Boston was DYING to go to the pool. So, we did.

We went to see the Pirate ship at Treasure Island during the day. ;) Did not take my 3 yr old to the scandalous "sirens" show. He picked out this telescope at the gift shop and looooves it.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BOSTON!!! I can not believe Boston turned 3 this year. Seriously , WHERE does the time go!? He is such a sweet boy and my best little buddy. He is so grown up. He potty trained himself a couple of months before his birthday (seriously, I did nothing, it was glorious), he loves his baby sister and is a big helper, still loves Buzz Light year, pirates, Lightning McQueen, and is starting to get into super heroes. He loves to watch movies, play outside on the tramp, learned how to ride his bike (video of that somewhere in this post), and is starting to "pretend". I love when I catch him doing this. Usually he is on his "cell phone" "talking to Nash or Gray". He helps clean up his own room and the baby toys in my room, and loves little responsibilities like putting his own bowl in the sink after cereal, putting his own stuff in the garbage, helping me dust, helping me vacuum, pushing his own small cart at the grocery store, taking care of Koda, basically anything he can do on his own. He is quite the independent little thing which at times is frustrating but you can't fault him for wanting to be big. :) He requests black eyed peas in the car, really thinks he can break dance, sleeps with his batting gloves on, I could go on and on. He makes me smile every day. His prayers before bed are so sweet and bedtime is often times my favorite time with him. He had a fun birthday and was way too spoiled.
He asked for a Pirate cake and I delivered. Love this cheesy grin.

Friends and family watching Boston open presents.
Hannah and Peyton.
Swimming at Grand-papas hotel. Recently I overheard this conversation between Boston and the neighbor boy that was over playing... Jumping on the tramp, Boston, " My grand papa has a Hotel, do you have a hotel? My grand papa has a hotel, but I don't have a hotel, but I will when I'm big. I'm big right now but I'll be bigger, watch this trick (lands on his bum and then to his feet, no hands)". LOL. That was one long run on sentence, that I had fun listening to. I always wondered what the heck little kids talk about and now I know.

He loves to go to Grand papa's hotel and swim

We took Boston skiing for his birthday. He had been waiting and waiting for this. He really wanted to go with my brothers and my dad and talked about it for months. He did really well and loved it so I think we will go again next year!

Dinner for my Mom's birthday.
