Happy Valentine's Day

Today Thomas and I were realizing how much things have changed since our first Valentine's Day. I was a junior in high school and he was a senior. We went to the Jade Inn in Highland. While we were eating dinner he realized he had a huge hole in his pants. :0) He gave me a diamond ring. I think I decided then that he was a keeper... mostly because we could laugh about the hole in his pants but the jewelry was nice too. While we were in the car today talking about how things have changed... how we used to go out all the time and now we never get out... a little voice piped up from the backseat "Stop talking! I am hungry! Can we go to Freeeuuugoooss?" and another little voice piped up " wah" (translation- are we home yet? I am getting hungry!) hmmmm maybe these two are part of what makes our lives so different from 1998... but I think they help make this valentine's day is the sweetest one yet! It's just another season of our lives and I wouldn't change it for the world!
- I love my boys!!!

David has been finding his voice. With a big brother who talks non stop you know it was bound to come sooner or later. :0) He likes to yell at us to get our attention. He is not really mad or sad... just LOUD! He also makes the most adorable cooing sound. I think it sounds like a cappuccino machine. I have been trying to catch it on video but I am not so good at that so some cutie pictures will just have to do.

Havasu with Grandma Utah

This past weekend we finally got back out to Havasu.... it had been WAYYYY too long since we had all been out there. Thomas' mom met us out there on Saturday morning. We had a great time hanging out at the channel and the park enjoying the sunshine. Both boys did awesome of the trip out there and both slept for most of the trip back (no stops!) We also had fun checking out the swap meet on Sunday. The boat stayed parked in the garage the whole time. Thomas had some problems with it when he went out with his friends for his birthday in August and we had it in the shop several times but it never really was fixed. He found another mechanic who took the engine out and basically told us it was toast. We might be able to sell off some of the parts but it is going to be a "spicy meatball" to replace. So this summer might be one with no boat. :0( while we are bummed about the boat we know what David is too little to stay out all day on the lake anyways. Thomas has been searching for other options but with three mortgages to pay each month we don't just have thousands of dollars laying around :0). Good thing playing in the sand and feeding the ducks is free. Poor Jonathan is the most upset about the boat being empty with no motor!
