Natalie's Bike Ride

A few days ago Taylor challenged Natalie to try riding her bike without the training wheels. She was reluctant at first but agreed to at least try. After a couple of falls and scraped knees she was ready to give up. Taylor (being the loving and patient dad that he is...haha) sat her down and gave her a pep-talk. He explained that Cooper was 5 years old when he learned and that if she could learn how to do it right away than she would beat him!! Natalie jumped up with a smile on her face and tried one last time. She is now riding all over our cul-de-sac all by herself. She is very happy that she mastered this skill before Cooper did.

Our Anniversary

September 9th was Taylor and I's anniversary. I can not believe that we have been married for 7 years. I can honestly say that it has been so fun to be married to Taylor, he keeps me laughing even through the toughest times!! He is such a wonderful father to our kids and he is getting better at the husband thing...haha. I love him so much!!

With both of the older kids in school and the new baby not here yet, Cody and I get to spend a lot of time together. The other day he was bored and following me around crying so I figured I would let him do something he is never allowed to do when the other kids are home........jump off of the couch onto a pile of pillows. He had the greatest time. Oh, the things we do to make our kids happy!!!

Labor Day Weekend

We had some friends come visit us this past weekend for Labor Day. We had so much fun with them. We took them up north to the Jemez Mountains for a picnic and fishing. The kids were very successful catching fish.
