Pat's Run

Pat's Run is a annual run here in Arizona (not sure if they have it in other cities too) to commemorate the late Pat Tillman- an American Hero. If you don't know, Pat was a Star football player on ASU's team, and then got drafted to play in the NFL for the AZ Cardinals. He played for a year on the Cardinals, and gave it all up to serve our country in the military. Sadly, he was killed in Afganistan. The legacy of Pat Tillman will never be forgotten, as we are reminded of his bravery and strength. This is our first time participating in Pat's Run, and will make it a family tradition. It was a (hot) Saturday morning, but there's no place I would have rather been! We made it a family event, bringing Dane along with us! We are sooo lucky that we have such a good baby that we can take places, and be out for long periods of time.
In all the crowd of 24,000 people, we managed to find and walk the event with my dad, brother Ryan, and his girlfriend Rachel.
Thanks to (Coach) Dyan for organizing our team and making us all get up early on a Saturday morning!
Yay! We made it!! All 4.2 miles. :) (I wasn't worried!)

Hey! I'm six months... Give me some Rice Cereal!

So... the time has come! Dane has officially turned 6 months. How did this happen?? It seems like only yesterday that we were bringing him home from the hospital. Time is going by waaay too fast!
I wanted to hold off on feeding him any rice cereal until he was six months. So, to celebrate his 6 month birthday, he got some rice cereal!! Lucky him, right?? Looks gross to me, but I guess babies like it!

I just can't believe that this 6 months has gone this fast! I literally got choked up feeding him- how silly is that?! This is just the first step of him growing up, and it makes me sad. I want him to be my baby forever! I love his baby giggle, his cuddle time and his smile with the two little 'toofers' growing in! Freeze this moment, and keep it forever. Oh wait!!... I am... that's why I am documenting on this blog!

Growing up is inevitable... I am enjoying every second, and making some amazing memories along the way! I am the luckiest mom and wife in the world to have the best boys in my life! xoxo!


We had an amazing Easter! We were (are) so fortunate to be able to host my family over for brunch. It was our first official family gathering in our new house! Plus it was extra special because of Dane. I am figuring out, that everything is now ultra special because of him. :)
We started a family tradition (not an original one) of taking him to the Easter bunny. We changed him into his 'fancy' clothes at the mall, and he wasn't too happy about it. Pretty sure, he's going to be a 'jeans and t-shirt type of guy'... loves those soft cotton onesies! :)
Hosting Easter was so fun! Everything turned out how we pictured... and more! Thank you everyone for coming over and celebrating with us. Look!! All 20 of us fit in one room!
Look at these handsome boys!! They are the love of my life!
Here's a couple pictures that just melt my heart... Dane and Nixon together. Nixon is my cousin Clinton's son, and is one month older than Daner. They will have a blast growing up together.

We are so blessed to have eachother. I truly thank God everyday for our little family. <3

Whew! What a day... hosting a party really wears me out!! (It's hard to be a baby!)
