Catching up Day 4: Ragnar

Ever hear of the Ragnar race? Travis ran it a couple weeks ago with his brother, his brother's wife, and a sister-in-law. It's basically a team of twelve split into two vans. And each person runs 3 legs of anywhere from 5-9 miles or so. They start in Logan and run to Park City! My brother-in-law describes it as being the most miserable fun you'll ever have. They're crazy. They said they had a lot of fun but when we met them at the finish line they were all hobbling and barely even running really. But they all look great from all the training!
We waited for them for what seemed like forever in that hot blazing sun! But the kids were really good and patient-
They thankfully know how to entertain themselves-Running across the finish line (trav's on the left in the red shorts)-Cason and sore Daddy (they look even more alike with their buzzed heads, don't they)- The runners! Clint, Danielle', Travis, and Shawni-
They look great, don't they??

Catching up Day 3: Hoogle Zoo

About two weeks ago Cason and I went to the zoo with my sister and her son and my mom. We had so much fun. The boys loved it! Cason's favorite part was oddly enough, the dinosuars. Right now Hoogle Zoo has dinosaur statues up all around the zoo and their hands and mouths move and they roar. While some kids cried and screamed when it roared, Cason couldn't enough of it. He'd have stick half his body through the fence to get the perfect view and then he'd just wait...and wait for it to roar. He loved it. Then he'd turn to the person next to him (whether he knew the person or not) and do his own roar- It was hilarious because he'd squat just a little bit as he held up his hands by his face and then do his own roar. It was hilarious. I have no idea where the squat was coming from but it made me laugh every time-

We aboslutely loved spending the day with Nana, Cason just adores her-

We got to ride the carousel-

I kept trying to point out my mom to Cason as we were going around and he had a hard time actually finding her. But when he did find her, he was pretty proud of himself-

My mom just eats these boys up! Pretty sure she's got the best gig of being Nana-

We rode the train which I think was another favorite for Cason-

The playground and fun random things the zoo had to offer, not so much fun-

But we all had such a good time! It was the perfect thing to get out and do on beautiful summer day!

Catching up Day 2: Summer Fun

Cason and I are beyond grateful that summer finally made it here (we were a little worried)! Now that it's here we pack out days full of summer things like playing in the sprinklers-

Which of course Cason just loves! He has been a water baby since day 1-

Being out in the sunshine every chance we get blowing bubbles-

and playing fun games like basketball-

After a long hard decision I decided to give Cason the haircut every boy deserves in the summer, a buzz! So here's before-

Brace yourself! Here's after- Agh!! I know, right? It's so short and extreme. He really does look adorable though. I miss the spikey hair but I keep reminding myself that will it be back!

But when it is raining outside or late Cason and I still find crazy ways to entertain ourselves-

We love you summer! Thanks for not forgetting about us!

Don't say the 'b' word!

Which includes (but is not limited to): Basketball, Ball, and worst of all-Bike! Cason hears these words or sees these objects and you'll probably have a fight on your hands...unless of course you want to play basketball, play ball, or go for a bike ride. If this kid could ride a bike then he probably would all day long. He has a push bike that he really loves but his new favorite is now my bike. We put a baby seat on it for him to go riding with me and it is his new favorite thing. Every day, 'bike, bike, bike'. He points to it, he reaches, and he even says 'please' in the cutest way you can imagine. Which of course, I cannot say no to. I have a feeling that every day this summer a bike ride will be included (thankfully it only needs to be 15 minutes long)!
Love you Cas!
