Okay, so I didn't realize that tagging can be very big in the blogging world. My friend Jilynn tagged me and I am sitting here on a Friday night at my mom's house, my boys are asleep upstairs and my dad and Justin are at work and my mom and Cree are chaperoning the LDS prom so I have decided it is time to answer the tag.

I Get Around

Jensen got a red battery powered truck from grandma Kim and he rides it all around the backyard. His favorite thing is to put Tyler in the seat beside him and drive him all over the yard. As you can see, Tyler loves it. The other picture is Jensen wearing Cree's hat. He just put it on one day as we were heading out the door and he kept it on most of the day. I thought it was too funny.

During conference weekend in April, Cree and I and the boys drove out to Mesa to see grandma Kim and grandpa Dave. We had a really great time and Jensen and Tyler got to enjoy the huge backyard and the brand new pool. They love being outside and fortunately the weather was really quite good. The boys also got to see their cousin, Makaelee and we were able to get nice pictures of the three of them.
