Trip to Arizona

Well, we were able to make the trek down to Florence, AZ to attend the blessing of our first niece. And it seems we survived, barely. We probably did close to 40 hours of driving if you include all of the extra driving around thoughout the weekend. And Gavin had enough. After the first day he just cried in the car and would not sleep but maybe an hour or so. So we were happy for the little time that we were out of the car and we were so happy to see family. Thursday we traveled to Ely and were able to watch my brother run in a track meet. Friday we traveled to Florence with some of my family. On Saturday we traveled down to Tucson and went to the Zoo, and it just happened to be a free day. And then after lunch we went to a train museum that was closed, so a worker was there and he opened it up just for us to look around for a little while. He even turned on some of the trains which made the little boys so excited. Sunday, Kamry was blessed and did so well. It was so fun to see her and see how tiny she is. Monday we jumped in the car and headed back to Ely and Tuesday we drove home. I am SOOO ready for a day to just sit at home and relax. My brain hasn't stopped running for almost two weeks. We LOVED seeing everyone and we miss you already.
Sorry all the Zoo pictures are just Gavin, but we like it that way. :)

They had all these booths giving away stuff at the Zoo that day so we had to take some pictures of these antlers on Gavin's head.

Our Monkey and a real monkey.He is such a happy baby when his Dad plays with him.

Outside the train museum.

His first time on the swings, I think he enjoyed them.

All the cute cousins. Gavin, Richie, Kamry, Jayden, Aaryn.

Cute Kamry.

Sick and 5 Months

Well, not horribly sick. I haven't been feeling welll since Sunday. You know just a cold: sore throat, fever, headache. All that fun stuff. Plus, Gavin is seriously teething so he is not sleeping well. So feeling sick and unable to get some good rest, results in being sick longer. So we have pretty much sat at home all week. Except for a few places we had to go. Zac even stayed home from work on Tuesday which was helpful, but I just ended up cleaning all day while he watched Gavin. Anyway, we have lots to update on. Most importantly we have a 5 month old! Well, tomorrow anyway. I can't believe how the time has gone. Gavin is amazing and does so much everyday. He babbles ALL the time, which is lots of fun, he rolls over, tries to sit up and pull himself up, he also wants to crawl so badly but can't quite figure it out yet. So instead he gives up and yells for someone to help him :). His favorite song is Zippity Do Da. Of course, we only know like one line so we sing that part over and over again. And he LOVES food. We did a little cereal, but I don't think he likes the taste, but he really loves the real stuff. He is great with the spoon. Those are just some updates of our wonderful boy. Here are the stats, we went to the Dr. yesterday: Height and weight is the 99th percentile. Meaning that 99% of kids his age are smaller than he is. He is 20lbs 12oz., and 28in tall. I know BIG kid, but he is so cute. And he looks great, according to the Dr. He even said that Gavin is such a beautiful baby that he should be on a magazine cover or something. I am sure he was just being polite, but of course I think my baby is gorgeous, so I will take it as a compliment. When everyone, and I mean EVERYONE tells you how beautiful your baby is it must be true right? (yeah, I know, just let me believe it). Here are the pics.
Taken today, just about 5 months old.
We just bought Gavin a crib after sleeping in the craddle, he needed A LOT more room. So we picked it up last Thursday and I finished the bumber on Wednesday.
I convinced Zac to let me buy Easter Church Clothes. We wore them the week before Easter because we were having our Easter Program for the choir. Here are my boys ready for church.
I love Gavin's shirt it just screams Spring, which is supposed to be coming :).
