Jared's little helper

Ethan has always been afraid of loud noises especially the lawn mower. But today he over came that fear and became daddy’s little helper. He “helped” Jared mow the entire lawn today. I’m pretty sure it took Jared twice as long but Ethan had fun!

1st Movie

Jared wanted to go the movies so we decided to see how Ethan would do if we took him along. We went to see UP, got him his own seat with his own bag of popcorn and hoped for the best. At first he loved it and really enjoyed eating his popcorn but after about a half an hour he got restless. He got up and down and in an out of his chair, then he wanted to run around so we took turns taking him out into the hall. We both really like the movie and probably won’t take Ethan back to the movies until he’s a little older.

What a helper

Ethan LOVES to help me cook. He loves to help me stir. So one day while I was making bread I let him stir the flour and while I wasn’t looking he ATE it! What a mess!

Then last week I made some peach jam and he insisted on helping me so I gave him a butter knife and let him cut up some peaches. He was so happy to help me!

Fun with Dad

On Labor Day I had a fun day with my mom, sister and a few friends scrapbooking. Jared had the day off and wanted to do something fun with Ethan so he took him to the dinosaur museum at Thanksgiving Point. Jared said Ethan had a lot of fun and really enjoyed playing in the sand and water. I’m so glad I have a good husband to do fun things like this with Ethan AND he took pictures for me!

Let's play catch

One night when we had scouts the boys brought their baseball gloves over to play catch. Ethan thought it was the greatest thing ever and he wanted to play too. When the boys put down their gloves he ran and picked the up and wouldn’t give the back. So when we went to the store that night he came home with this…
his very first baseball glove. He was very excited and made Jared sit on the floor in the kitchen and play catch with for at least a half an hour.

24th of July

This year for the 24th of July we had a BBQ at Jen and Beau’s and then watched the fireworks in Mapleton. I brought some sparklers to the BBQ and Ethan and Addy LOVED it!

We went to watch the fireworks at Mapleton because Ryan (my little bro) is a volunteer fire fighter. We had front row seats for the short, but good fireworks. We were sitting right underneath the fireworks. It was pretty neat!

A few LOs

So I've totally slacked in my posting but I've been busy making lots of scrapbook pages. Here are a few of my favs.

More baby contest pics

I finally got these pics from my mom. These were taken the day of the baby contest. In these first few photos you can see that Ethan really did nothing but sit there and stare at the ladies judging him.
Once he got his balloon though he was all smiles and talk.

Here he is holding his prize

And here is my cute little niece Paycee.
