We had so much fun spending the week together and being outside. Justin is such a great dad and Davis loves having him around. Her face lights up like Christmas whenever she sees him. Being a dad and the provider for a family isn't easy, that is why I am so grateful that he works so hard at both. I wish we could have him home all the time because everything is better when Dad is around.
ZEBRAS!! She loved them and they were so funny. That one kept picking up his food bowl and throwing it in the air. I think he was hungry and getting angry that his bowl was still empty.
Giraffe... that's all I have to say about that.
Justin offroading with the stroller and our three month old baby. She is already an adrenaline junkie.
The walk up Provo canyon is my favorite .
Cute little coy smile. Everything this girls does is so girly.
Daddy and Davis. She was holding up her fist so Justin did it too. (baby power)
Here are the shades. Man she is one cooooool baby. It is so great that she has Justin's personality and is laid back. That way I get to do stuff like this to her and she doesn't freak out.
Wearing dads hat to keep the sun off her face.

Daddy's gone so Davis gets to hang out on his side of the bed. She just chilled like that all morning while we read a great novel.
It was St. Patricks Day today and We had a great time. A couple weeks ago I decided it was high time I get to know the women in my ward. I have never been very good at being the initiator, but part of my new years resolution was I was going to put myself out there and get to know people. We live in a great area and are in a wonderful ward. So I got together with my friend Robin and we planned a St. Patrick's Day picnic for those of us who are at home during the day. I was so excited to meet people and get in the sun. The weather was AWESOME and a bunch of people came. It was so fun to watch all the kids play at the playground with each other. I love living in a place that has so many young families because there are so many kids running around all the time. I got to know some new great girls from the ward. I was actually surprised to see how many people came. Women who were just out walking came by and joined in the celebration. It was especially nice to be outside in the sunshine enjoying great friends and food. I am hoping to do this for every holiday and get more and more people to come.
Green cupcakes, I tried to be very festive and make everything green. I also made cake pops and put the in a glass jar filled with colored green sugar. It turned out so cute!!
Those are the cake pops. It was my first try so they are not as pretty as they should be but I will keep tyring.
Here is the spread, everyone helped out by bringing something. We had tortilla wraps, fruit, pasta salad, yummy punch in the green bucket, and treats. Lots of treats.
Some of the beautiful girls from the ward.
More beautiful girls
Kids everywhere it was so fun to see. I don't want things to go faster but I can't wait for Davis to start walking and playing. She will have so many little playmates when she does.
She definitely had their attention.
My friend Robin's little girl Abby, who bursts with personality. She is definitely a red head.
Robin' her new baby, and her friends from Oregon who came for a visit.
Davis took a little nap in the sun. Probably a little to long, she was a little red after.
Becky's little girl
I love that this little playground is right outside our front door. There will be many a day spent here in the future.
Fun on the swings
Lincoln and Max, Krista's little boys.
It was such a great day. I am grateful for all the people who came and made the party so great. I hope that in the future we can get even more people to come and enjoy each other.

The other night we were out late so we started her bedtime routine a little later than we usually do. Apparently we don't need the routine to get her to sleep well. It was so cute- she would half open her eyes make this little whimper sound the go back to sleep. Sometimes she is so cute I could eat her (Get in my belly!)
This last weekend the girls that Justin has coached the last two years had a tournament. They were playing only ten minutes from our house so I decided to pack up Davis and head up there to watch them. I figure it can't hurt to get her used to being in a gym.(it will be her life) It was so great to see all the parents of the girls Justin used to coach. I spent most of the time with our great friends the Koehlers. Davis was great about being passed around and handled all day. I love that she is such a happy baby and just smiles when people get her face. A sister of one of the players was there with her son and it was cute to see him interact with Davis. He had this little stuffed duck that he would put up to her face like the duck was giving Davis a kiss. It was really cute (we were telling him to do it, but it was still cute.) The girls of course did very well and won their age group. Unfortunately Justin had to be in Viewmont filling in for one of our coaches who was out of town. It was great though to be out of the house and have so many adult conversations and feel like a member of the human race.
