Little A and Lincoln

What a busy weekend we had! On Friday night Aaron and Tatton participated in their first "Father and Son Campout" with the ward for the Priesthood Commemoration. So Tatton and Aaron packed up the tent and sleeping bags and headed out. I must say that I was not going to be surprised if at 11 o'clock at night they walked back in the door, but they never did. They survived the night. I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall of that tent to really see how that went. But they had a lot of fun and Tatton was so excited to go camping! Then Saturday morning our Young Women had a Girls Camp Fundraiser Breakfast, held at the park where all the boys were sleeping in their tents. So bright and early we had to go set up to cook breakfast... especially for all those boys. The girls had a lot of fun and we had a good turn out to support them and earn money for camp! After all the cleaning up of the breakfast then we met up with our friends Natalie and Sheldon and headed to the Zoo! It was finally a warm Saturday so we took advantage of it. Tatton was so excited to see Zuri, the baby elephant. She is pretty cute and still really small. I thought she'd be bigger by now but anyway. Then Sunday we got to visit with Lauren and finally see Little Adalynn for the first time! She is a cutie, it's fun to have little babies the same age. Her and Lincoln are about 5 weeks apart.

On the way to the Zoo... Tatton put his own stunna shades on.

Poor Lincoln, he's not old enough yet to know what's going on... why he's being carried around in the sun drinking from a bottle with a ton of different noises. He was a trooper though.

Sheldon was excited for the Zoo.

And finally the two little babies. I love the distinction between girl and boy in these pictures. They could not have been decked out in more pink and blue. They are both smiling at their own Mommies, how cute is that!

I had to get a picture of the legs, sorry Lauren! They were just too irresistible.

What a Poopy Day...

CAUTION: You may not want to read this post or view the pictures if you've got a weak stomache.

Tatton's nap time again turned into one of, what I like to call, Tatton's Shenanigan #763. He was all tucked in bed and had been quiet in his room for about 20 minutes so I peeked in to make sure he was covered up for his nap. But to my dismay he wasn't asleep sound in his bed. Instead he was painting himself with his own feces. Of course I was extremely upset, but I had to grab the camera first to capture the evidence for Aaron when he got home. Then I began the bathing and cleaning festivities. Might I say that Resolve carpet cleaner works very well, and I'm a big fan of Shout stain remover.

This was the official crime scene.

And this is Tatton now wanting to take a bath. He was saying it was stinky and gross but why that didn't stop him earlier is beyond me.

Missing: Thomas the Train

This picture really says it all. Yesterday Tatton could not find his Thomas the Train and he was quite heartbroken about it. We looked everywhere, literally. I mean I searched the house up and down trying to find it. So I made him a little "missing" poster to put on the fridge so that when Aaron got home he could help look for it too.

Tatton decided he wanted to wear the poster instead of putting it on the fridge. That didn't work so well. Anyway so we got the poster on the fridge and I continued looking for his train. Finally about an hour later I went over to close the blinds and noticed these guys hiding behind a picture.
I immediately remembered Tatton playing with his trains behind the picture the day before and that's where he left them. Needless to say it was a joyous reunion with his Thomas the Train toys.

In Uncle Lewis' Voice... "the BLESSING!"

Lincoln was blessed last Sunday. No we didn't plan to have it on Mother's Day. Our stake ended up having Stake Conference the first Sunday in May, and so fast sunday fell on Mother's Day. We thought about doing it in June instead, but his little tux would NOT fit at all by then. It was a wonderful day surrounded by family. Lincoln was a trooper and didn't make a peep during the blessing. Tatton on the other hand threw a HUGE fit that Daddy left and Papa left. He was rolling in the aisle, diving under benches, screaming, crying for Papa. It was awful. Aaron sat down after the blessing and asked how he did and all I could do was shrug. I hardly heard a word of what we said. I was really sad, but he filled me in, and our family told me he did a good job so that's all that matters. Still a good day in our book. Lincoln has been starting to smile the past two weeks or so but I never catch it on the camera in time. I caught a little bit of this one though!

All four of us after church. It was blazing hot in our church and Tatton has the "Tatton" red face when he gets warm.
Lincoln before church with a bit of a smirk on his face.
I love having a husband who works at a greenhouse. Yay flowers! Tatton felt the need to water them on Saturday with rubber boots and all.
About two weeks ago I was feeding Lincoln on the couch and thought Tatton was down in his room playing. I was severely mistaken. This is what I discovered when I went to change Lincoln's diaper. No more baby powder, Tatton emptied the entire bottle. It doesn't look like a whole lot, but that powder is like an inch deep on the floor. Good times...

Randy (one of many brothers) came up a few weeks ago with the kids for the weekend. Tatton and Troy are 3 months apart and they had a lot of fun together. They discovered jumping off the rock fireplace much to Papa's dismay.
This was prior to our bbq, Tatton and Troy were apparently starving because they were tanking down crackers and grapes. I wish I had filmed it because neither one of them were talking, nor did they look at each other. It was strictly eating business going on.
