I have a great family

Everything is going really well. Things with the house are moving along; we had the inspection today and everything looks good. I also went and got paint swatches because I was really excited about making the house our own. Riley and Carter are both doing really well as you can see from the pictures. The weather here in Utah is perfect right now. It has been getting up into the 70's the last few days and we love to go outside...even Carter which I must say surprised me a little. Carter loves to smile but only does so on his own terms which explains why this is the first picture of his wonderful little smile. We also figured out that he likes to get tickled. We hold his arms above his head and tickle his armpits and I guess I am not sure but it sounds like he is laughing and he does get a big smile on his face. Riley is getting more and more stubborn each day which isn't good since I am just as stubborn and we butt heads on occasion. I guess we will figure it out. Tonight Carter was asleep on my bed and Riley went in, climbed up on the bed with him and layed right next to him. Riley did wake Carter up though but it was so cute! I have a wonderful family which is all that matters.

The first picture of his lights up his whole face.

I figured that I should put a picture of me on here with my boys! They are so cute...they get their looks from their dad.

Riley helped take this picture.

Riley wanted a picture with his little brother. They are so funny together.

Our latest

Well, it has been a while but hear is what has been happening since my last post. We blessed Carter on April 12th and it was really nice. It was a beautiful day and we had all of our family crammed into our little apartment which was totally crazy. Carter barely fit into his outfit even though it was a 3 month size and I was really nervous. All in all it was a nice day and we are grateful to everyone for coming down. Riley and Carter continue to do well. Riley has discovered his love for cows and whenever we get into the car he is on the lookout. Carter is now 2 months old and weighs 16.5 lbs and is 25.5 inches long. Basically he is a big kid. Dusty continues to work hard and enjoys what is does. Also, I can't believe I almost forgot...we bought a house. Well, we close on the 28th of May and we can start moving in then. We are very excited and it is so cute! We also will have a strawberry patch, grapes, raspberries, blackberries, rubarb, peaches, apples, and room for a vegi garden. It is in Payson and is on a quiet street, it is really exciting.

As close as we can get to a smile

Riley loves to help Dad use the tools

Before we knew it both hands were in the cake and he loved it
