Trip to the Aquarium

Today Tyler and I visited the Aquarium. It has been a while since we've gone and it seems like everything was new to Tyler. The sting rays were his favorite and it used up a lot of his energy running around. It was a fun day for both of us and ended in a long nap for Tyler.

Beau Benjamin

We received exciting news last night that Jessica had delivered her baby! The Cochrane's kindly took care of Tyler for us as we visited Presbyterian hospital and met mom, dad, and Hudson in a waiting area. Before long, they were wheeling Jessica out with her new baby! After saying hi to Sam and Kiley, and bidding everyone farewell, we joined Jess, Seb, and soon-to-be-named Beau in the room they would stay at overnight.

We got to hold the little guy and talk with Jessica, and then accompany her while Sebastian joined the baby in the nursery for some tests. It was a wonderful experience.

Dinner with the Girls

Tonight I had dinner with three of my good friends. We made Malai Kofta (an Indian dish with potato dumplings) and mango lassos ( a mango & cream smoothie). I had never tried them before. It was super yummy and a great bonding experience cooking together. After a late dinner we spent the next 4 hours just talking about anything and everything. How blessed I feel to have such amazing friends!

Love day 2013

The day started out like any other. Shauna woke up first, and sneaked out of the house to pick up some surprises. Almost immediately after she departed, Tyler woke up. Shauna remembered her wallet and returned to an awakened house. She grabbed her wallet and departed again, returning 30 minutes later with balloons, a teddy bear, chocolates, and Blake's breakfast burritos. Tyler discovered that they make for a delicious breakfast.

Jacob and Shauna exchanged cards (you will have to guess which is whose) and gifts. Shauna anxiously unwrapped her scrapbooking stamps and holder, and assembled and sorted the parts through breakfast.

That evening, a surprising (not really) visit from the Elders ended in bellies deliciously stuffed with cheddar chicken. When they left, the real party started and Tyler had a glass of "Mormon" champaign. Good way to get him to retire early for the night!

Tyler's first time eating pudding

Ever since first eating chocolate on his first birthday, Tyler has been addicted! You can imagine how much he enjoyed this chocolate pudding. These pictures were too cute not to post.

Fun with the Cousins

Today we celebrated Jared & Milo Hobbs' birthdays at Dion's then dessert at Grandma & Grandpa Hobbs. It wasn't too
cold of a day so the boys were able to play outside. Tyler is finally big enough to walk and almost keep up with the boys. They all had a lot of fun! I was able to get a couple cute pics. With all the stairs, Tyler could climb up them but then he'd be stuck and need help to get to a lower level.
