Brotherly Love

I thought that this was too cute to miss. I had put Parker down real quick so I could go get something and when I came back Brayden had climbed off his chair to go sit with his brother. Brayden is such a good big brother. Whenever Parker is crying Brayden will come and find me to tell me that "Parker is sad." He wasn't too sure of him at first, but has now gotten used to the idea of having a little brother around, and I think that he likes it (most of the time).

On Easter Sunday Parker was blessed. It was a great day with a lot of family. Caleb gave Parker a beautiful blessing. I am so grateful for a husband who is worthy to bless our kids and me. Parker looked so adorable in his little blessing outfit.

Thanks to everyone who shared in Parker's special day!

Happy Birthday Caleb

Caleb celebrated his 25th Birthday on April 11. Though it was a crazy day I think he had a pretty good Birthday. He got fishing gear in preperation for his Alaska trip. All the kids trying to help him unwrap his preasents

Happy Easter

We had a great Easter. Instead of subjecting Brayden to the craziness of city Easter egg hunts we thought that we would ease him into the idea by having a private egg hunt with his cousin Abby. It was a good thing too. He didn't really get the idea that he was supposed to pick up the eggs until one broke open and he saw the candy.

Brayden was so excited that the Easter Bunny came to visit him

I was nursing Parker today and could hear Brayden getting into the fridge. When I went to go see what it was that he was into I was surprised to see what he had picked for his snack... He was downing a bottle of BBQ sauce. Nasty...It's funny that he wont eat his vegetables but he will drink a bottle of BBQ sauce. You got to love two year olds :)
This last weekend we were working on our yard. After working hard the guys sat down for a water break. At first Brayden didn't want too until Daddy and Grandpa sat down then he wanted to be like the boys. So cute

A love sleeping babies. They always look so peaceful. This was taken on Parker's 2 month birthday. It's amazing how much he has grown and changed.

My other sleeping baby. Brayden refuses to take naps, but sometimes he can't fight it any longer.
One night Caleb got Brayden to bed and we thought wow he was really easy to get to be tonight. It wasn't until we were going to bed that we realized Brayden had snuck out of his bed and passed out one ours. What is it about mom and dad's bed always being more comfortable?


This past spring break my parents went to Arizona to see my brother and his family so I decided to tag along with the kids. The boys did amazing during the long drive. Brayden had so much fun playing with his cousins and Parker was spoiled rotten by Grandpa holding him most of the time.Brayden loved playing with Kaden and Evan's cool toys and of coarse with his cousins.
One of Amy's friends had some lemon trees that had alot of lemons and so she let us come and pick a whole bunch. We picked them then went back to Amy's house and squeezed a whole bunch to make fresh lemonade. It was so fun. Those trees smelt soooo good and the lemonade tastes even better.

Brayden loved being able to play outside whenever he wanted in the warm weather.

Grandpa having a popcorn party with all the grandkids.

On one of the days we took the kids on the tran and went into Pheonix to visit the children's muesum. That muesum was way fun. We spent hours in there and the kids had a blast. My camera's battery ran out so I only got a picture of us waiting for the tran.
It was a fun trip. Thanks mom and dad for letting me tag along. Thanks Tyler and Amy for letting us crash at your house. And thanks Caleb for always working so hard so we can have fun.

Still Alive

Yes, we're still alive and doing well. Life has been crazy, between trying to get our yard in, church callings, and raising two boys I don't seem to have any time left in the day to blog. My goal this week is to catch up. So stay tuned to see what has been going on in the Bigelow family for the last two months :)
