Daddy's Little Helper

Kayl was wandering around the house today and he found where I hid his big box of Goldfish. He decided that since I wasn't looking that he would open the box and dump them on the floor. I turned around and found Kayl sitting in a mound of Goldfish and so proud of himself. He sat there and ate the majority of them.
Todd got the vacuum out and turned it on. Kayl ran to him and started to push the vacuum. It was the cutest thing ever. He got mad when Todd turned the vacuum off because he wanted to clean more. I know who is vacuuming when he gets older!!


My Child No Longer Drinks From A Bottle!!!!!!!!

We got him some SpongeBob sippy cups since he loves SpongeBob. Ever since we got them he hasn't touched a bottle. I'm so proud of him!

The importance of money (in 19 month terms)


Run to mommy, she has jingles in her pocket.

Grab Mr. Pig

Hit mommy with Mr. Pig and point at the top of it.

Make mommy put jingles in in Mr. Pig and laugh and smile.

Wait til Friday when mommy goes to money store.

Bring Mr. Pig

Give mommy Mr. Pig to give to money lady.

Get a piece of paper.

Todd and I thought it would be a great idea to open a savings account for Kayl. When ever we have loose change we put it in a little piggy bank that we got when we opened the account. Kayl now knows the sound of loose change and will run to us when he hears it. He will bring his little piggy bank too.
I go to the bank every Friday and the minute I get the piggy bank Kayl runs to the door. He loves the bank and loves the little piece of paper that he gets after Mr. Pig gets empty.

How beautiful

I love this Temple and was so excited that we got to pass it twice. I so badly want to do a session here. Isn't it beautiful.

What camping does to little boys

We left Grover today at 5:30 am because this little child decided that it would be fun to wake up at 4:30. Right as we got to Bicknell I looked back and saw this. He was just a little tired!

Kayl's little wagon

Todd's mom and step-dad gave Kayl a cute little wagon one day. It is a cool moon wagon. He was a little afraid of it at first but when we were in Grover he never wanted out of it. We used the wagon a lot more than the stroller. It was so fun!!

Capitol Reef

I was a little sad that it rained all day when we went into Capitol Reef. Kayl hated the rain so we didn't get to do any of the hikes that I wanted to do. I really wanted to show Todd the waterfall that I love to play in. We drove there and no one was there. It was still drizzling but I didn't care. We climbed down and it stopped raining and the sun came out for fifteen minutes. I had to get in the water but I didn't have my suit so I just waded in my jeans. Kayl loved the water and didn't want to leave. He only got mad because it started raining again.

Our Forts

When I was little, we used to go down to Grover once a year. We had such fun playing in the hills. We would gather flat rocks from the hill and build forts around trees. I'm amazed that the forts still stand to this day. My fort was the coolest because it had a built in chair. I would sit in my fort for hours and just watch the sky.

Grover Trip

This post is most likely going to be a bunch of little posts but I was overdue for a Grover vacation because I haven't been there in 3 years.

This was right when we got to the cabin. Todd has never been to Grover and he really liked it. Kayl had a good time to.

This just happened!

For some reason my sink all of a sudden did this. I walked into the kitchen and heard my neighbors water running and all of a sudden water was everywhere. I called my landlord but so far no one has come and I have no idea what to do. I'm out of towels and it keeps getting worse. The water has almost reached our carpet and it smells so bad.

Time for an update!!

I'm totally about to go to bed tonight and I lay down and find an Internet signal. I don't know how long it'll last so I'll try to get as much written as possible. We went to Summerfest and took Kayl on his first ever ride on a Merry-go-Round. He actually quite enjoyed it. We also got two new pets to replace our cats. Their names are Bill and Ted and they are our cute frogs. Kayl loves to look at them all day. We are also starting to potty train Kayl but I have no idea how to potty train a child. Any help would be fantastic. Well, that's all for now. I'll have more later because we are going to Grover this weekend!!

I know that it has been a while since I've blogged, but when you don't have the internet what are you going to do.
We've been pretty busy lately. Todd has been working more and more hours and he sometimes dosen't get home till 6 or 7. I've been working like crazy at Iggy's and I'm still hoping to start serving soon.
Kayl is my little walking machine. He just doesn't stop. He discovered how to push himself into the kitchen so Todd and I had to go thru the entire house and baby proof it.
We love our new place we just really miss the cats. We've been without them for a whole month but it feels a lot longer.
Sorry that this post isn't longer and there aren't any pictures it's just that I have to blog from the library and they don't give you near enough time to write anything bigger.
