Helmet Head...

Owen is so goofy!! He found Justin's old helmet and HAD to have it on! He kept that helmet on ALL DAY! He played in it....ate in it.....Luckily he didn't have to sleep in it! His head was a sweaty mess when it finally came off!

Sneaky Sneaky!!

So Owen has a serious candy and pop addiction that we struggle with daily! The first thing he says when he wakes up is "Boones" (which is a gas staion near by we visit often) followed by "POP" (he knows thats what we get at Boones) and he can't comprehend why he has to eat breakfast and drink milk and can't have pop and candy!!

We have a daily rutine that involves Owen climbing up on the counter to get some candy out of the jar followed by me telling him no more candy and quickly taking it away! Well.....I couldn't find him the other day and when I finally did this is what I saw. He had sneaked a handful of candy and made a run for it. He hid himself in our closet behind the clothes and quietly opened and ate all his candy! How can you get mad at that?? I had to just laugh!

It's a BOY!!

We found out today that we are having another BOY!! We are so excited and it will be so fun for Owen to have a little partner in crime! The only problem it that we have such a hard time thinking of boy names!! We can't wait and are way excited to be having another little boy!!

Happy 4th!

We had such a fun 4th of July weekend. We went boating, to the fish farm (followed by a delicious fish fry), and of course fireworks! Owen loved sparklers and the awesome firework display put on at Grandpa and Grandma Simkins.


We went out boating on the forth and Owen had such a fun time with his cousins! He loves the water and can't get enough of the boat. Our little nieces and nephews are getting so good on the wakeboard, and Lily who is just a few months older than Owen got up and skiied so well! Owen tried skiing for the first time (unfortunately I don't have any pictures) but he started crying and wouldn't stand up, he just held on to the rope and drug behind the boat. Maybe by the end of Lake Powell he'll be a pro! ;)
