Happy Halloween 2009

To start off Halloween holiday the week before, we went to the Hee Haw farms. It was a lot of fun. Lex loved this slide and went down it like a million times. He also rode the pony. I think he felt like a "big boy".

He was a natural.

We also rode a little piggy, hahaha.
I think Lex's favorite part was the corn box. He played in there for so long. He loved playing with the other kids. He even helped a couple bury themselves.
The corn maze was fun. Lex was a little worried at first but then he realized it was okay, he led the way. Thank goodness we found our way out.
Halloween was a fun one this year. Usually Lex is so difficult but he was only slightly difficult this year. My mom sewed his Elvis costume. On Friday we went to Grandma Judy's work, Rachel's, and Ben's work.
Here he is at Ben's work. He loved taking the spotlight. Or rather he didn't want to stand in one spot so we could take the picture.
Isn't he handsome??
He definitely looks the part when he wears the shades.
Friday night we went to the ward trunk or treat. He had fun playing all the little games they had. He especially loves the frosting on the cupcake.
Lex napped late on Halloween so we got a late start to trick or treating. We went with Charles and his girls. Lex had a blast.
He really got the whole trick or treating down. He loves getting the candy. He was so funny, when the people would let him pick which candy, he would grab a whole handful. oops.
Here Elvis is with uncle Chucky.
He was so cute with his bucket of candy, he would not let me hold it for him. He had to carry it.
Here he is in his pajamas with his loot.
He may have eaten a couple of pieces before bed. It's Halloween, right?? You can see the chocolate on his mouth.
He loved counting how many pieces of candy he got.
Is there anymore in there????
On another note. Here are Rachel's puppies. Jen says she has yet to see a picture of them. There is still one left if anyone wants one. Oscar was sold. So, Lola is there still!
On Halloween Grandpa Rosequist stopped by on his way back from hunting and took us out to lunch. Lex loved looking at the deer they shot.

Happy 4th of July

The day before the 4th Ben's company has tickets to go to the Real soccer game in SLC. Afterwards, they let them on the field for fireworks. I love fireworks. Lex got to say hi to the mascot, but I forgot his name...oops.
I love this shot. We forgot the stroller so Lex had to walk with dad. so cute.
We had extra tickets so Kevin and the boys came with us.
Lex loved the fireworks, he just watches in silence.
That night, Ben and I slept on the parade route in Provo. We will never EVER do that again. That is probably one of my worst experiences ever and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
Since Ben hates parades and he was nice enough to spend the night with me, he left after helping me clean up. I got a beautiful view of the all the hot air balloons.
Lex was being friendly and gave Rach a kiss.
He got tired towards the end. I was glad he wanted to snuggle with grandma instead of me! It was hot.

Here is the whole gang.
I guess Lex is more like his dad than I want to admit. He was covering his ears.
Lex loves his grandma. Rachel is holding the newest to our family, Sean.
Overall, we had a fun time besides a couple of annoying kids next to us. Lex loves anything as long as he is sitting in his stroller.

Summer finally

It finally has been warm to get Lex's pool out. He was so excited. He was jumping up and down as I was blowing up the pool.
We had so much fun. I forgot how cold the water is!
Of course Lex wanted to be naked. He started off with his swimming suit on but ended up pulling them off. It took me a lot of convincing to keep his swimming diaper on!
I am so glad he got in, even though it was ice cold.
When it was time to empty the pool, I had fun throwing buckets of water at him. He was running away from me, but I got him good.
I had so much fun and I can't wait to play in the pool again. Yay for summer!

Rides and more rides!

Rachel and I were feeling up to riding the crazy carnival rides yesterday. I guess I was feeling young. Little did I know I would get a headache and bad stomach ache afterwards. We went on the ring of fire. It is a rollercoaster that just goes around and around. I swear I was falling out of my seat!
We also went on the orbiter. That was the funnest one of the night. I was laughing the whole time. I guess I get that from my dad. I remember when we were little and I was afraid to go on rides, I would just hear him laughing the whole time. Now, I do it!

My mom and dad come to laugh at Rachel and I am sure.

Lex loves his grandma. Thanks for helping with Lex all the time so I can do fun things!

I had a playgroup with friends from high school. Kirsten was in town from Brazil so it was a must before she left. Her son Issac took this picture, not bad! Kirsten, Alison holding her son Bryson, Ashley holding her son Sam, and me with Lex.
I showed Ben this picture and he said all these kids from 4 moms?? Yup I think everyone is in this picture except Sam.
Lex, Bryson, Claire, Ezra, Abby, Noah, Kyle, Issac, and Livi. I hope I spelled their names right.

Lex had to be naked boy. It wasn't even hot outside. I guess he didn't feel like wearing clothes.

I love this picture. They are all playing in the puddle of muddy water!

Lex strutting his stuff!

This year I thought Lex was old enough to enjoy the rides that they had at the Summerfest. He was a little nervous but once Alyssa showed up, he was so brave and wanted to try everything.
His favorite by far, was the big slide they had. He wanted to go again and again.
He thought he could just cut in line. I had to teach him to wait his turn, that was hard!

He went on the train with Alyssa and Kelsey.
He didn't want to go on the boats, he just wanted to play in the water.
Overall it was fun and I am glad Charles showed up with the girls. When Jen gets here we will try Lagoon, I guess we'll see how that goes?????
