The Tulip Festival

If you haven't been you need to go! 
But unfortunately it's over. 
Always next year.

p.s. We showed up at church yesterday only to be met by the bishop telling us our meetings were canceled. 
Something about a gas leak. 
As we headed to the next closest church building (two blocks) I told Trevor I felt like a rebel.
Church canceled, we might as well go boating.... or to the grocery store!

Life According to Bridget

Hi. Bridget here.

I have a bone to pick.

I would like to address the most commonly discussed subject in my presence. 

My thighs.

But seriously! 
Many times people don't even care to know my name, or my age, heck sometimes they don't even know I'm a girl before they make a comment about my legs.

Sure, my legs might have a few more rolls than the next baby but can they do THIS!?!

Yeah, that's the splits.

You want to see it again??

So this is for all of you that have even thought: plump, chubby, or rolly, when looking at me.
This is especially to the man who walked by in the grocery store grabbed my thighs and laughed "BABY LEGS!" not once, but three times! 
(head shake)

Now that I have proven myself, you will excuse me.... It's dinner time.

Birthday Weekend Recap

I have the greatest husband! 
If you missed it, Trevor wrote me a blog poem. Read it HERE
That in fact was the third poem he has written me, what a romantic.

It doesn't stop there. He planned the whole day on my birthday complete with an hour by hour agenda! 

He started the day out making a delicious french toast breakfast.

We made a picnic lunch and hit the road.

We soon came across nothing...

Where were we headed you ask?

The Spiral Jetty!!! In the Great Salt Lake.
I was so excited. 
We knew it was early in the year so it would be under water but it was still really neat.  Can you see it? We will definitely go back when it has resurfaced. 
We had a blast and took a ton of pictures. 
(Bridget was a bit on the tired side.)

Not far from the Jetty is the Golden Spike historical park... we couldn't not stop.
We went into Salt Lake for dinner eating at Frida Bistro. 
It was oh so good! 
After a scrumptious meal he took me to Bruges Waffles and Frites for dessert. 

Rating out of 5
Frida Bistro: 4 
(Food has wonderful flavor, very tasty. It is pricey. Left feeling satisfied not full.)
Bruges Waffles and Frites: 4 
(I have been to Bruges, Belgium so I am a little biased but they do a fantastic job. My dessert stomach was hoping the waffles would be bigger, but my thighs said to stop complaining.

Thank You Trevor for such an awesome birthday!!!

Dear Bridget,

You are 7 months old today! 
I would have sworn you were older, just in the last month you have become my little buddy. 
You respond to things I do and say. 
You make me laugh more than I make you laugh now. 
Speaking of which, you have the cutest laugh and are very ticklish! You especially love when daddy tickles you with his beard on your belly.

You have a sassy little personality.

You LOVE to sing songs, it makes me giggle to see how much you love "the wheels on the bus."

You are a pretty good eater, we are up to 2-3 solid meals a day. You definitely prefer oatmeal & yogurt, and sweet potatoes & carrots. If there is something you don't like the taste of you gag until you spit up....stinker!

You slept through the entire night last night for the first time!!! I put you to bed at 9:30pm and I woke up with a wet shirt at 5:00am, oh my milk jugs were so heavy. I had to get up and pump and then check three different times to make sure you were still breathing. You slept for 11 hours straight!!!
FYI, now that I know you can do it I will be expecting it.

You have become very curious and I am amazed how much you can get in to especially because you aren't crawling yet.

You have three teeth, all on the bottom.
Although your top gums are bulging like a couple of teeth are going to bust through any day. 
I am grateful you care about your oral hygiene:

I am so happy to have you in our lives. We thank God everyday for you and your sweet spirit. Can't wait to see what next month brings.

Love your guts,

Birthday Ode to the woman I love

Greetings blog stalkers!
This is Trevor, April said that the only thing she wanted for her birthday (aside from the other things she has told the both of us) was for me to do a Blog post on her I mean OUR blog.  So I thought I would share one of my innumerable talents with you, that is my gift of rhyme.  And this is arguably the reason April married me.

April my dear how do I find the words to say,
That my love will last forever ... and a day.

The reasons I love you are more than the sands of the sea,
So to put it simply we were meant to be.

I love how great you are to our baby,
You always know what's best for our little lady.

I love you because you deal with my quirks,
And remind me that it is only because I's Works.

You laugh because my dream truck is a mullet on wheels,
I laugh at you cause yours is a mini-van with the frills.

I love you because you are so wise,
I love you because we've learned to compromise.

I love you because you you teach me what's in style,
Even with a mustache you endure me with a smile.

I know I'm not the prettiest man alive,
But for you I still strive.

I hope you know I am alway all ears,
Especially at night to listen to your hopes, dreams and fears,

So now to send this off right,
With all of our might.
Let's lift our glasses, or sippies, in a toast,
To the woman we love most.

Happy Birthday April,

I sure do love you!


Bridget said she wanted to post as well so this is what she had to say:

Rough Translation: Momma I love you So much!  And you make the best Milk! Happy B-Day!
