So Much to Blog About...

I don't even know where to start! I have so many pictures, so be prepared for a LONG post!
Desert Breeze Park
First off, Amber, Tyler, Brooklyn and Boston came out and spent a week in "Zona" since the cruise got postponed. We had a ton of fun and a week went by WAY too fast!
One of our fun days was at Desert Breeze Park in Chandler....

Our next adventure so far this summer was driving to Utah with Kasey and Joel to visit the boys family! It was a really long drive but Maddux did great on his first road trip. We still haven't been able to get him back to his normal sleeping schedule (poor me!!!!!) but we had a lot of fun visiting everyone!

Here is Maddux is Grandma & Grandpa Tattersall's high chair. Maddux got to meet his second cousin, Ethan. They look so much alike and are only a couple of months apart. They had a lot of fun "playing" with each other on the ground. They are both super happy and smiley babies, it was fun to watch.
Grandpa Ingram holding Maddux for the first time. We visited Grandma Ingram in the hospital. I know she is going to kill me for posting this picture because I promised her that I wouldn't, but Maddux just loved her and we want to remember it always!
We also had a big gathering of the Tattersall side of the family (Drew's grandparents on his mom's side). Tons of food and TONS of kids!!! We never got a big group picture, which I am really sad about, but there were just too many people there.

This is another one of Maddux's second cousins, Eli. I think they look so much alike too! It was hard to get a good picture of the two of them because Maddux kept rolling on TOP of Eli everytime I would snap the picture, so this is as good as I got! Every time Drew and I make the drive to Utah we try to cram it into a 3 day weekend. When we get back we ALWAYS say, "we are never doing that again!". Well, we did it again and it was actually a lot of fun and I'm so glad we went. Thank you to Kasey and Joel for inviting us and driving! Thank you Grandma and Grandpa for letting us stay at your house and for ALL the yummy food! By the way, I lucked out and only had to drive for 3 hours on the way there. I think the rest of the passengers were a little annoyed at my NON-speeding driving technique and offered to not make me drive again! Darn!

5 Months already!
Maddux turned five months a few days ago. I don't have any brand new pictures because I left my camera in Kasey and Joel's car from our trip. But..I have a few videos from this week that I love. The quality is awful because they are taken on my cell phone. sorry!

It wasn't like you to have such a break in posts, but now I understand why! You guys were very busy. I LOVE the videos at the end. They are SO cute, and I love Maddux babbling. I'm impressed that you guys made it to Utah and back in 3 days! Fun pictures.

Oh, Maddux is getting so big! It feels like forever sence I've gotten to see you guys. But now that I'm not preggy anymore, we'll have to get together. I am so making it to bunko this month. See ya later.

Mark and Mel said...

Ok I just love the videos! Please post as many videos as you can since I don't see you guys as often as I should! I'm glad you guys could still spend time as a family even though the cruise was postponed. At least you still have it to look forward to in a few months!!

You have been busy! It looks like you're having a great summer so far! I can't believe he's 5 months and the videos are so cute. He's got such a little personality. Hooray for random dreams! haha. Wow, running around the field at HRHS--holy cow I feel old! Speaking of running, I hope the training for St. George is going well! Can you even run outside in AZ right now--I remember it begin so hot around this time!

Hi Tarah!
I can't remember if I have already left you a "hello I found your blog" comment, so if I am repeating myself just ignore me!
I found your blog and have had a great time getting caught up on you and your sisters/parents. Maddox is adorable! Sounds like you are loving this mommyhood gig--and guess what? It just gets better!
Pie says hello too and good luck with running.

I can't believe he is already 5 months. He is so cute! I didn't even know you went to Utah. I am a slow driver too and so I don't even get the chance to be behind the wheel.

I missed you this morning. After you texted me I went back to sleep and didn't wake up until 5:40 and it was so flippin hot already when I ran! So then I was thinking, sheesh, are we going to have to start going at 3 or 4 when the mileage gets higher? Well, anyways, I know you'll miss me while I'm gone but I'll be back next Monday. :)
