The Duck Pond

Gabe loves to go to the BYU duck pond on 8th South.When I was working and Emma would babysit him, she would take him there sometimes. Above the pond are gorgeous walkways and gardens, and a horrifically   large flight of stairs. Emma complains about the time he said he had to go potty so she picked him up and ran up the whole thing. Then he sat there for a while on the potty with nothing happening and said "I don't need to go."
We had a half a loaf of starting to mold bread. Don't you judge me! I can't eat it fast enough! So we took it to the ducks who don't mind the mold.
Quince pictures being taken in the background. Everyone looked AMAHZING
Her dress looked kind of like this but imagine poofier!

Classic Gabriel picture. Wouldn't be a photo shoot without one of these bad boys

He insisted on taking  pictures of me. I'm very photogenic, didn't you know?
Ooooo yeah.... lookin' good
Girl look at that body.... I work out.
New ducklings! We have been reading the Ugly Duckling a lot recently
so we talked a lot about that while we were here.

It has been so hot here recently. I feel like I'm back in Tucson again! Ugh. We decided to try out Gabe's new swim outfit and run in the sprinklers in the backyard. He was so funny! He wouldn't get too close to the water, just barely enough to get some sprinkles and then run away screaming and laughing. 

Starting Fresh

Started a new blog, as you can tell :) There is too much back story as to why, so if you're close to me and know what's going on, then you know why. If you don't know what's going on, well, then give me a call so we can catch up, because it means we haven't spoke for a while! :)
May- The Avengers movie came out, which was a big deal for this three year old. Disney stores nationwide threw an Avengers party in the stores where you dressed up and acted like an Avenger. We went up to the amazing City Creek Mall for the party.

Wind up to the Hulk clap....


Happy Iron Man

Gabriel has been working on writing his letters. He wrote every letter on these cards and we hung them up on his wall. He loves seeing them everyday. I'm so proud of him!

Proud boy!
On Memorial Day, Gabe and I went up Provo Canyon (Gabe kept insisting it was the Grand Canyon) to Bridal Veil Falls for a little hike. It was PACKED. Everyone and their grandma's second cousin was at the falls or on the trail. Gabe got into the water and played a little but it was pretty cold so we just walked up and down the trail a way.

Ugh. Hard to take pictures of yourself with short arms.

Gorgeous black butterfly that landed on the trail in front of us
