Stupid bugs!

Remember this picture from a few years ago?

Well now our backyard tree blew over and we found out this this little bug was living inside of it. I'm afraid that both of our trees are full of bugs and quickly dying. That means we have no shade and now we have to buy new trees. What a bummer!


So Ethan has a new favorite thing to do...sit on the potty. This has just developed over that past week. Some times he'll sit on it with his clothes on, other times he wants is diaper off and a few times he wants all of his clothes off. He doesn't do much when he's sitting on there but he sure loves to flush the toilet and wash his hands when he's done.

Father's Day

This year we were in sunny St. George for Father's Day. Ethan gave his Grandpas a tie with his hand print on it and he gave Jared an apron with his hand print. He thought it was great fun to paint his hand and put it on the ties and apron. And I think his dad and Grandpas enjoyed the presents too. I had to give my dad his present early and totally forgot to get a picture of Ethan with Grandpa Withers. But here are a few with Grandpa Vidoni and Jared.

Vidoni girl time!

This past weekend we had a fun Vidoni girls weekend. It stared off with a night out to the Tuacahn musical theatre to watch Footloose! One of my favorite movies brought to life. If you ever have a chance to see a show at the Tuacahn I highly recommend it. We even talked about going back this Oct. to see Thriller!

The next day we had breakfast at IHOP, then pedicures and then headed to Las Vegas to enjoy some delicious food, Freemont Street and some sun. By recommendation from my wonderful friend Brittney we ate at The Cheesecake Facotry. She told me to try the fried macaroni and my goodness it was sooo good!

On our way to dinner we were able to stop and watch the water show in front of the Bellagio. This is always one of my favorites things to see in Vegas.

Here we are waiting for table at the Cheesecake Factory.

And here we are by the pool showing off our beautiful pedicures. It was a fun weekend with lots of fun memories!

Our Garden

Well I thought I'd post how our garden is doing. It took a little while but it's in full bloom now. Everything is growing and some things are growing better then others but we are hoping to have lost of yummy things to eat this fall. Our carrots are up, we have lots of tomatoes and a squash! We would have had some strawberries too but every time we'd get a nice ripe one some animal would eat it! Then the animal started eating all of the strawberries even if they weren't ripe. Oh well I guess.

And here's a cute picture of Ethan enjoying the nice weather outside. He LOVES to be outside and loves to swing in his swing.

New pics of Ethan

Last week Ethan and I had a wonderful lunch with my friend Brittney who so kindly took some pictures of Ethan for me. They turned out sooo cute! Here are a few of my favorites.

Ethan LOVES this dog. It goes everywhere with him. When he's tired he likes to play with the dogs tail and stick it in his ear. I guess it helps him fall asleep.

Isn't he so handsome and big! I can't believe that at the end of this month he'll be 20 months! Wow! Were did the time go?
