Last Thursday the whole family went down to the Salt Lake Comic Con Fan Xperience. When we go out into large crowds we dress alike- mostly so if one of the boys goes missing we can hold up the other one and say "He's dressed like this!" We decided to wear Giants apparel to Fan X and I knew we had a shirt that was just E's size, so I went through a box of baby boy clothes and TaaaaaaDAAAAA! She's adorable :)
She's pretty much the perfect accessory
We had tickets, but we showed up right at the same time as the rest of the state.....so we waited an hour to get in, which was fine because while waiting we realized that my wallet and the baby's bottle had both been left in the van, there was plenty of time to fix that little oversight. The boys enjoyed the times that I was wearing the baby because it meant that the stroller was available.
Who you gonna call?
The original Bat-mobile from the movies in the 1960's, you can see how impressed the boys are.
They were most impressed by this little vehicle.
Ken was most impressed with this car (which is the Delorean from Back to the Future) until.....
he saw this Ferrari.
Here is a castle. ( I don't know what castle it is)
The Black Tower
A city! (and look there's Bat Man)
A scene from Ghostbusters
Superman stopping a train! There is a damsel in distressed tied to the tracks....just out of frame.
The Delorean being pushed by the train, from Back to the Future 3
........and the baby fell asleep
By the end of the day, the baby was a little overwhelmed.
Back at the Lego table- A Hover Carrier from the Avengers Movie
A year or so ago Ken and I went to dinner at a local restaurant called Porters Place. When you walk in they have a lunch counter with Tractor Seat chairs. When we saw those we knew that we needed to bring the boys down there for a treat. And last Friday we did. Have you ever had an Iron Port? It's one of the first soda flavors EVER and I like it, if you want to try it, you can get one at Porters Place.
I tried to get an artistic shot of us- you can kind of see us all, Ken, Baby E, J, B and me. And you can also so a portrait of Portrait of Porter Rockwell.
We ate dinner at the lunch counter and then we moved to a table and shared a 3 scoop Ice Cream Sundae.....it was DELICIOUS!
Look who's all grown up! That's right she's 5 months old.
So, It's been a couple of months, I wish I could say I've been busy. I guess in my own way I have been. I've been busy snuggling with my kids and feeding the baby and trying to decide what's important for me to do. I guess sweeping the floor a couple of times, running many many miles and doing an unknown amount of laundry (it's seriously up to like 8-10 loads a week) took precedence over updating the blog. Throw in most of us getting sick with something or the other, my Grandma Turner passing away, a trip to Puerto Rico, the computer crashing and COMPLETELY frying the hard drive and a Baby Blessing......I guess I have been busy.
So lets just start with this last weekend and I will try to work backwards from there.....and move forwards at the same time, don't worry, I can do it! I can do hard things!
We went to an Easter Egg hunt at my parents house on Saturday. This is B and his 2 cousins who are under the age of 5, plus a friend who was visiting. The kids were allowed to hunt by age- 5 and under, 8 and under and over 8......the over 8 crowed didn't get too many eggs.
The boys got their spring/summer haircuts, so for the next few months you may be under the impression that B is bald, he is not.......his hair is just the exact same color as his scalp. Got to love that boy.
Baby E got into the action, not by collecting eggs but by looking adorable in a little dress that her Aunt Carrie wore many, many, many years ago. Baby E wants to sit up so bad, but she's not quite there yet.
The boys are very good egg hunters!
We had a fabulous Easter Sunday. Ken sang with a Men's Choir at our church service. Little B gave his very first talk in children's Primary, it was about Families, and my sister Abby and I sang at my Parents church. Baby E came with me when I sang and the boys and Ken spent the afternoon together at home before joining us at the Turners for dinner. Apparently the boys had a little Egg Picnic.
