Luke is 2!

This past week we celebrated Luke's 2nd birthday. I can't believe how big my baby is getting. He got a Thomas the train set and dvds, a jack in the box from us and some matchbox cars and a fun bath toys set from Grandma. He was pretty confused when we kept telling him happy birthday and singing to him. But he did understand that he was getting fun new toys and basically plays with only his new things right now. He's saying more words every day. We love having him in our life. Happy Birthday Luke!

I am so glad that Luke is finally wearing his cute cowboy boots!

Bear Lake

July 26th was our 5 year anniversary. Greg got me flowers and a secret souvenir from our Europe trip. He got Legos per his preference. I can't believe we have been married that long. But I am so lucky to have caught him. He's really awesome to be around, a great husband and father.
Two days later we were on a plane to Utah. We went up the canyon and stayed with the Gessels. Greg's Dad celebrated his birthday on Sunday and Monday and Wednesday. We went to the Sandy aquarium and looked at all the cool stuff including penguins and jelly fish. Thursday we headed up to Bear Lake where we had rented a cabin a couple doors down from the main relative cabin. Basically all my siblings were in this cabin with our kids. We had lots of fun at the lake and hanging out. Saturday was not as fun when Austin, Luke, and Tina started puking. Luke was stopped puking Sunday night, but we didn't really encourage eating since we were going on a plane and didn't want to clean up a nasty mess. He was so tired and weak that he slept most of the way and was very good. It easily could have gone the other way with him screaming the entire time. We really enjoyed our week in Utah and are sad it was so short we couldn't see friends this time.

So I haven't posted in a while. It is because I'm lazy and also because I am pregnant. So I am sure you can forgive me for not yet posting European vacation part 2 and Bear Lake Fun. 2nd lieutenant, as Greg calls the baby because he wants the boys to outnumber me, is due February 25, 2012. I am 12 weeks. So there, now you know. I am more sick than lazy.
