Never Forget

Every year on September 11th the Idaho Falls Fire Department puts on a program in remembrance of the 343 firefighters who died at the Twin Towers and the firefighters from South East Idaho who have died in the line of duty. Sean is part of the Honor Guard at the Fire Department and participates in the program every year by presenting the colors. He looks so good in his Class A uniform I couldn't help but take some pics, I know there are a lot, but I can never pick!!

And here is one more, I barely ever take pictures of me anymore so here's one to remember.

SLC Blitz Weekend

Busy, busy, busy.... This past weekend was just crazy busy for our family. We started out Friday morning with haircuts and birthday present shopping before jetting down to SLC to get Ayden's picture taken at the Kiddie Kandids (with a short stop in Syracuse to get in some baby time). That evening was celebrating Joe's (my brother-in-laws) birthday at Spagetti Mama's and playing games at their house that night until 11:30 (poor little Ayden what a trooper). All I have to say about DVD clue is that it's a lot more fun when people (Candis, Joe or Becky?????) don't cheat. The next day started off with Candis's baby shower at the park followed by a quick transition to the zoo. Ayden absolutely loved the elephants and gorilla's we had to pry his little finger's from the railing to move on to the next exhibits. I'm sure my father-in-law Kendall got some great pics I'll post later here. We went to dinner that evening with Sean's fam at Iggy's and really enjoyed the time we got to spend with them. The next day, Sunday was Logan and Penn's blessing in Syracuse and man did they look cute in their little white outfits. Mary Elizabeth and Spencer did a great job with a potluck afterward and we ate ourselves sick before leaving. As you can see we had a whirlwind of a weekend and it wasn't a good one to forget the camera, but I just can't imagine a post without a pic so I poached my favorite one from Candis's blog of Ayden and Joe. Both our families are so great to play with Ayden and help us keep an eye on him when we're out and about. We just couldn't ask for better Aunt's, Uncles, Grandma's, Grandpa's and cousins!! Ayden loves the attention.

Dare Devil

Sean and I decided that the summer was coming to an end way too fast and we just hadn't had enough yet so we decided to spend the day at Heise Hot Springs which is a little resort just outside of Ririe (the next town over from us). It was such a good time. that we even went back after Ayden's nap for more fun. Ayden loved the waterslide and would run over to the stairs to go up again saying "slide, slide" everytime he got off, even after Mom dunked him, oops! It never ceases to amaze me just how fearless that little boy is.
