Aria Taking Her First Steps

Aria decided to start taking a few steps.  She has been taking a few here and there for a couple of weeks, but is still a little timid about just taking off.  She will walk behind her walking toy real well and if you hold her hands, but on her own she will only take about 5 or 6 steps.  She is still nervous about walking on the tile and hard floors.  I can't blame her.

Aria is also a really good eater when it comes to eating vegetables and fruit.  She will sit and eat tomatoes from the garden.  Teisha picked some apples from their tree the other night and she ate have of a green apple all by herself.  I'm not a fan of green apples because they are too tart for me.  She also eats lemons, avocados, sweet potatoes and all sorts of fruits.

Jayson's Dad Is 79

Jayson's dad (grandpa Jay) is 79.  It's crazy how time flies.  He still mows his lawn and works in his yard.  He basically takes care of Jayson's mom.  He does the laundry, the shopping, drives her to all her appointments to see doctors, get her hair and nails done, and everything else she needs.  He just has quadruple bypass in April and it set him back a few months, but he is hot footing it around just like before.

26 Years

Twenty-six years ago today we got married at the LDS church in Lovell, Wyoming.  I can still remember all the details of the day.  Decorating the church all day.  Jayson's two oldest sisters fighting over how they were going to stand while they sang.  Jayson and I walking down the isle after we were married and we couldn't get our arms right.  I kept trying to put my arm through his and he kept trying to go the opposite way with his arm.  We fed each other cake and he smashed it all over my face and onto my dress and down my dress.  Lol  We went to our apartment the first night and he carried me into the house.  It seems crazy that it's been 26 years.  What's even crazier is that we have been together for 31 years and we started out at age 15 and 16.  Who would have ever thought you could stay with someone you met that young.

Aria's First Time On A Boat

Ryan's dad bought a boat to take to Lake Powell next month, so they decided to take it out and give it a test run.  Teisha said Aria loved being on the boat.  She passed out in Teisha's lap.

Aria's First Trip To The Zoo

Teisha and Ryan were in Midway for Ryan's family reunion, so they took Aria to the zoo.  She loved all the animals and was especially excited about the sea lions.

Jayden And I Went To Las Vegas

I wasn't planning on spending 3 days in Vegas, but my sister in-law Kyle texted and said her son Ross was playing in a basketball tournament and they needed a place to stay on Wednesday and Saturday night.  Jayden and Ross are the same age and are close, so Jayden wanted to go down to Vegas to watch Ross play.  My good friend Wendy from Wyoming texted on Wednesday and said she was on her way down with a friend for the tournament.  She wanted me to come down, so Jayden and I drove down Thursday morning.  I stayed in Wendy's room with her Thursday and Friday night and headed home Saturday night at 8.  Jayden stayed with Ross and Kyle.  We had a good time walking the strip, riding the monorail, eating at the Cheesecake Factory, watching a couple of games, and just hanging out.  I alway love spending time with Wendy.  We laugh a lot and talk about old times.  I was worn out from all the walking.

Jayson wanted a picture of me with my shades
that he bought me.  I had them on my head inside
and he texted and said, "Now put them on and
send a picture."

Jayden stayed up in Springdale for a couple of days and Aria got really close with uncle Jayden.  She has always thought he was the greatest, but she is just loving on him like crazy today.
