Jack's First REAL Library Trip

Jack has come to the library with us several times but this time he was old enough to sit and look at books! So I bundled him all up and we went for a stroll to our little Midvale library!

He read the books with the extra thick pages since tearing paper is one of his favorite past-times. The kids section had a few kid pools just filled with books so that's where we sat and read! Jack kinda figured out how to turn the pages once I separated them for him. What a stud!

Our V-Day!

We had an awesome V-day! John and I went on a hot date to a Mexican restaurant that is now one of our favorites. It's called La Cocina and everthing was good--pina coladas, nachos, and the main courses were huge so we ended up eating only a few bites!
I got John some fishing stuff to help his dream to be a pro fisherman come true. I also got him Coach Carter, a movie he loves.Now the best part...
I thought John did such an amazing job putting thought into my present. He went to Michael's (yeah, the craft store) and he got a bunch of these flat wooden hearts and he turned them into coupons I can redeem all year long. It stinks the picture didn't turn out well enough to read what they say, but they're GOOD coupons. Like one free ANYTHING! I'm thinking about asking for a car for that one :) One girls night out, all expenses paid. One week of John doing dishes AND laundry, now that's a good get the point. John is so awesome, I just love him to death.

As for the little man, I made him some little felt car shoes (on my craft blog) and we got him a sweet pair of britches!

Jack and Emma

So I am way behind on updating this blog but I'll sum everything up...

First, we moved in temporarily with John's brother Russ and our sister-in-law Vanessa. Our little apartment got a bunch of water damage and so it's being worked on right now. It's been awesome hanging out with them pretty much 24/7!

Jack is six months old now and he's doing great (besides this nasty cough that doesn't seem to go away). John and I are very proud of his chubbiness!

John and I are doing great too. Just yesterday we got to go out to La Caille with John's work. It was really fun to go to such a fancy (not to mention ridiculously expensive) restaurant.

Also, Vanessa and I are very proud of our craft blog! We are getting lots of traffic and being featured on other big-wig crafter's blogs. Thanks to everyone who has been following!

And lastly, I took these pictures of Emma, Jack's cousin, and Jack playing together. Anna was asleep and they were just so adorable! I'm really sad I can't get all of them to post, I don't know what's wrong...

My Birthday!!

For my birthday what I wanted more than anything was SLEEP. So John and I stayed at a hotel and I got to sleep for 11 hours and sit in a nice hot tub! Oh it was wonderful!

John made me this awesome candy-gram!
We of course, went to Tucano's for my free churrasco! So good!

My mom watched Jack overnight for us, and when we went to see him he was excited and helped me open my presents!
