Growing and Changing

Lets just face it, i'm not very good at blogging. O well....over time maybe it will get better as it may help me remain sane. Whatever that means. Please be patient while I write a very long possibly boring post. Mainly for memory sake because I'm not very good at keeping journals either.

No this post is not titled growing and changing because I am about to announce i'm pregnant. That is the furthest thing from our minds at this point in our lives. Some women can handle their children 2 years apart but those women do not have Phoenix as a child HA.
Either way, our baby has gone from a "baby" to a toddler in such a short amount of time. He is so smart and very very active and keeps us going from sun up to sun down. We love him so much and couldn't ever imagine our lives without him. We never knew how much you could love someone so much until we had Phoenix. Its the greatest thing!
We are trying to enjoy our lives as much as possible right now. I'm working doing hair and jetblue close to full time. In our spare time we are enjoying our neighborhood very much. We have made some great friends here and continue to build wonderful friendships.
Here are a few pictures from the summer that has FLOWN by!

We love to go play at the pool with our friends
(I hope you don't care I posted these pictures, in case you do I won't mention names since we can't see your face :D )

Phoenix enjoys it when daddy lets him sit next to him in the passenger seat or even in his lap in the drivers seat! He thinks its the funnest thing ever but of course he doesn't ever really ride that way!
He loves going outside. Every day he will go to the back door and reach up to the handle and say out out out. I don't know what we are going to do come winter when I can't let him go outside everyday! He gets so excited when I pull out the stroller right before a walk. He runs around and dances and runs to the door and trys to open it. He is so darn cute!
We have a walkway behind the houses that we always let him out of his stroller and he just walks along side us the whole way. He just loves it!


There have been a few occassions where i've gotten him way to tired at the pool and he is just to tired to even eat his lunch.Richard and I both celebrated our birthdays this summer.We didn't do anything to exciting but, we just enjoy spending time together as much as we can no matter what we are doing.I love our neighborhood. There are always kids outside playing. Since Phoenix is always wanted to go out we've let him play with the kids outside a few times. This is one of Phoenix' new friends. She took him on a ride in that little Barbie car of hers. So, thats pretty much our summer in a nutshell. I'll update a little more later. Things are only getting busier for our family. Richard is going to start going back to school in the Fall. He also enjoys going to a fitness Krav Maga class in Lehi 3 days a week. And I enjoy it to ;).I've just been called to be in the Young Women's Presidency in our ward which I'm really excited about. I am a little nervous but, I am priveledged to have been chosen for such a call. Wish us luck!

HOLY COW!! Where have you been? Haha just kidding I love seeing your update!! I can't believe how big he is they really grow up way too fast!! Brynlee is the same way about being outside so Mike and I decided we will probably have to stock up on snow clothes because there is no way she will be cooped up all winter!!
