Carter dressed himself for church today..

Yes those are cleats and yes he did wear a jacket when it is 90 degrees outside. And yes I walked through the halls with him, holding my head up high, all the while being so embarrassed!

Our day...

Today was such a busy day. First I went on a bike ride with Marlee on a bike ride and run (trying to cram for our triathlon next weekend!). Then I went straight to my friend Nikki's house to pick her up to go get pedicures and manicures for her wedding that was tonight. Sean's family came over at 9:30 for breakfast and to hang out with his Dad. I put Carter down for a nap at 12:30 and cleaned up the house, got ready for the wedding, woke Carter up to get ready and then went and had Carter's pictures taken. He was the ring bearer. Well, he was supposed to be the ring bearer! He did really well at the rehearsal yesterday and was already to do it today, but then I think it just took too long before it was his turn to go and he got shy with all the people there because right before it was his turn to go down the aisle, he lost it. He did not want to do it and didn't even want me to walk him down the aisle, so there was no ring bearer at this wedding, but at least he looked cute for pictures with the flower girl!!! Stephanie (my SIL) did such a good job on the cake. It was so pretty and DElish!
The gang: Grandpa Jerry (Nikki's grandpa), Dad, Mom, Grandma Jo (Nikki's grandma--my parents old neighbors for 25 years--this lady taught me how to tie my shoes with a shoebox!), Marlee, and Spencer.

Carter was as happy as could be once he was outside climbing on the rocks.

Who is this kid?

I had to capture on video what Carter did this morning when we were coming inside. I shut the garage and he ran over to it and hit the sensor so it went back up automatically, and as the garage opened up he grabbed on. What? Where did he learn this? Check it out...(don't mind my voice...I'm a little sick)

Go Coyotes!

We went to the Coytoe's Hockey Game with my parents. It was so much fun. I haven't been to a hockey game since college and Sean and I have never been to one together. Thanks Mom and Dad for the fun night!!

Bridal Shower

Today I threw my friend Nikki a bridal shower. They actually got married a couple of months ago but their official wedding ceremony is in 2 weeks. We had lots of fun at the shower and lots of good grub!

Conference Weekend at the Cabin

Spencer, Parker, Ashton, and Carter roasting marshmellows.
We went up to the cabin last weekend for conference with Sean's twin brother brandon and his family. We had fun cold Ranger rides and fun roasting marshmellows. The four little boys had so much fun playing with each other outside. 

Love it...

Be Your Best Self

Last night, I went to hear Betty Sue from last year's season of Betty Sue talk at Poppy's Home Decor in Gilbert. She was so funny. She talked a lot about her experience on the Biggest Loser and her relationship with her daughter Allie, who won the show. And she talked about little things you can do to be happier with yourself. My favorite part was when she was talking about being in a hotel room sitting on the bed waiting to find out if they were going to make it on the show, eating a whole Large pizza by herself and then saying, "I wonder how I got fat?" Her life changes have been amazing, very inspirational. My other favorite part was when she apologized for cussing in one of the episodes and someone called her and told her to have her mother leave the room because they did not edit it out; Betty Sue said, "my mother, what about the Prophet?" I didn't know she was LDS and now she is going around to different stakes/wards in the state talking about her experiences. Pictured: Me, Katie, Betty Sue, Stephanie, my cousin Mendy, and Wendy. Thanks for the fun night out girls! (except for the getting lost part on the way home!)
