Ball and Koki

 Well, a lot has been happening at our house this past week.  We welcomed a Japanese exchange student into our home for three weeks.  We have had SO much fun.  I hope we get the opportunity to do it again next year.  His name is Koki and he is here for 3 weeks. 

Carsyn's first official word is ball.  He says ball for EVERYTHING. The first thing he says every morning when he wakes up is ball.  To say he is going to be daddy's ball player is an understatement. 

At just 15 months old he is OBSESSED. Last night he wanted to play SO bad and just watched in admiration of Koki (the Japanese boy) and my husband.  It was so cute.  I wanted to capture the emotion he had and I hope I did.  Mainly the longing to play with dad!  What do you think?

Catch up - May

We went on a hike to some hot springs up Spanish Fork canyon.  We were told to watch out for nudists so we were a little worried but it was a cool rainy day and we went early in the morning so we were in LUCK! On the hike Cayten found a broke robin's egg.  There were like 5 pools you could sit in.  Some were perfect for the kids, others were HOT! It was a BEAUTIFUL hike.

As many of you know we were able to view the Eclipse here in Utah.  It was a pretty awesome experience.  The only downside was I kept being foolish and looking right into the sun.  I was getting frustrated and so I put on 2 pair of sunglasses.  It WORKED. So, I had the genius idea to put those sunglasses over my camera and this is what I got.  WAHOO!

My aunt was diagnosed with Breast Cancer earlier this year.  A bunch of us got together and ran the 5k.  Well, I was the only one that ended up doing the 5k since everyone else did the mile, but it was my first 5k of the year.  I have now done 2 more and on my way to running a 10k in September!

My Carsyn turned ONE!  Man, time flies!  We actually celebrated about a week after his birthday.  For his birthday he was experiencing fevers of 105 and a couple seizures to go along with them.  He had a few absent seizures but hasn't had any since the fevers broke so we are hoping it was just part of the virus he had.  It was very SCARY.  He also started walking shortly after his first birthday and is now a running machine.  It is so much fun to have him in our home.  We crack up laughing multiple times a day by the things he says and does.  He now can sign more, please, ball, and he says ball and mmmmmm for food.  He use to say mom and dad but hasn't really since he learned the word BALL!
