Summer 2013

I meant to post pictures all summer and never got around to it, but here are some of the fun things we did.

We took Jett to the Discovery Gateway Children's Museum 

(the helicopter was his favorite part of the museum)

We played in the dirt in our backyard since we don't actually have a yard right now

We went camping at Fairview 

 Roxie did NOT appreciate Jett wanting to share her bed

We hiked up to Battle Creek with my family 

We went down Cherry Creek to ride some four-wheelers, and Jett truly believes he is driving the dune buggy (some of the "big kids" are pushing it, Jett has the BEST cousins)

We walked around in Daddy's hat and shoes looking adorable 

 We played at the splash pad

And of course we rocked a pair of sunglasses and just looked awesome!

Happy 2nd BirthdayJett!

Dear Jett, 
Happy 2nd Birthday! You are such a fun and happy little boy, we can't believe how quickly you catch on to things, you're such a little smarty-pants!  We love you so much and are grateful everyday to have been blessed with you as our son.
Lots and lots of love, 
Dad and Mom  

 We had him open his Tonka truck first thing in the morning, and he of course loved it! 

Jett can't get enough Curious George
(he has a lot in common with that crazy monkey)

Startin' the year out great!

 January was a fun month even if it did start out with Jett getting an ear infection that was followed with a rash from the antibiotic, things quickly got better from there!  

My boys on their laptops (Jett thinks the mouse is a phone, haha)

I gave Holden some crap for getting a horse, but it has really turned out to be a ton of fun

 This is our homes first snowman!

He LOVES lining up his toys like a train

I'm thankful for...

Happy Thanksgiving!  I have so much to be thankful for, and my family is on the top of the list!  I have an amazing little boy, and a husband that still makes my heart stop.  We were both raised in wonderful families, and I'm thankful that Jett is surrounded by so many examples of loving parents.  Both of our moms work hard to make the holidays special and I'm very thankful for them.  I'm thankful that we are employed, and healthy, and have a nice warm home to live in.  I have friends that I have known since grade school and I'm thankful for them and always look forward to going out with them every month.  I have a lot to be thankful for and I love that we have a holiday that helps me remember how very blessed I am.

We did it!

Building has been both a blast and a headache, and we're finally done!  We have wanted to be in a place of our own for sooo long that I can't believe it has actually happened.   I am very grateful to both Holden's parents and my grandma for allowing us to live with them throughout the years.  Our families have been very supportive, and it is because of their generosity that we are able to do this.  We love you!

Monson Family Vacation 2012

My Family took a trip to Yellowstone last week, and we had a ton of fun!  We stopped at Lava Hot Springs on the way to West Yellowstone, and Jett l-o-v-e-d the slide there.   I think it may have been his favorite part of the trip, the kid seriously loves the water.  We saw some awesome wildlife, of course there was buffalo, deer and elk, and then we also saw a coyote, two bald eagles and a moose.  We went to the Discovery Center as well so we got to see bear and wolves there, but that doesn't really count when they are fenced in :)
 Going down the slide with grandma...we would let go of him at the very end and let him drop into daddy's arms, and he would just squeal! 

Holden's favorite part of the trip was definitely finding wildlife

 Hitchin' a ride on grandpa's shoulders

 swimming at fire hole was probably my favorite part, we jumped into the rapids and let the current carry us down stream a little ways...Jett of course did not join in this but maybe someday he will! 
 Playing with his cousin Rylee.  All my nieces and nephews are so stinkin' cute with him!
