Hello All! Wow, it has been a long time since I've been around this here blog of mine! The last two weeks have been really crazy for our family! First we took a road trip out to Utah to visit my husband's parents and attend one of my best friend's weddings. Ethan did amazing in the car! Hardly any crying with the help of a portable DVD player and a goodie bag full of nic-nac's from the dollar store. Pretty good for a 13 month old in the car for 10+ hours. Anyway, our trip was a blast, but the day we got home Ethan got the flu. He proceeded to pass it on to both my husband and I as well as the rest of our family here. Needless to say, we have been recovering for the past week and yesterday was the first day I felt like I was coming back from the dead.
These pictures of are of a couple flowers that were blooming in my mother-in-law's backyard. That is one thing I miss about springtime in Utah...the flowers are beginning to bloom even amidst a few snow storms.
Enough about what has been going on around here...I have some exciting news!!! Today I want to do my first GIVEAWAY!!!
