Sometimes I have days where I wonder what in the world I am going to do with Maddux. For those of you who haven't met him in person, he'! That doesn't even do it justice. Crazy, busy, hyper, curious, I could go on and on. For those of you who DO know Maddux, you know exactly what I'm talking about. I LOVE him to death, but I tell you, there are some days that I am exhausted by noon!

Today I was looking at some old blog posts and got completely teary eyed and appreciative of the little guy I was blessed with. He is a total sweetheart and can melt me into a puddle in seconds. I wouldn't change him for the world! Here are some of my favorite pics from the past 22 months with my crazy little buddy!I LOVE this kid!

Firestation Tour

The other day we got to tour an awesome firestation in Scottsdale. Maddux was more interested in shutting all the doors to the engines than anything else, but I think he still had fun!

Bounce U

We took advantage of having drew home on Labor day and spent a fun filled Monday together. First we took Maddux to the splash pad then we all took naps (yay for naps). We got up and took Maddux to Bounce U. I thought it would be a fun place for him to jump around and get some of that energy out. Little did I know that Drew and I were allowed in on all that fun! I wasn't prepared and had to buy some of these awesome purple socks they sell there so we could play.
Total Blast!!!
notice maddux at the very top...he climbed up all by himself! It was STEEP!

We were missing half of the family on this year's Family Lake Powell Trip. Amber, Tyler, Brooklyn, Boston and Taz couldn't make it and Drew couldn't come because of work. We missed them all!
It was a crazy, busy couple of days for me. Watching an active kiddo like Maddux when you're surrounded by nothing but water sure does wear you out fast!

I got to ski once and wakeboard once, but we got there right before Labor day weekend and the conditions weren't the best. We had a blast just relaxing, swimming, hiking, going down the slide, and laying out!

He loved playing in the sand...
Check out this awesome outfit....Maddux gave me the scare of my life when I went to check on him one day during his nap. He had taken off his pullup, crawled out of his crib onto the ledge and was playing at the window. If that window had opened....!?!?!...well, I can't even think about it...I'll leave it at that!We had a fire and smores one night. The people on the other side of the canyon from us put on a pretty amazing fireworks show too! It was awesome!
My dad, Kasey and I went on this fun hike. Once we got to the top, we looked down and realized we weren't going to be able to get back down. It was SOOO steep! Here we are trying to figure out a plan...A little rock bowling while we were up there....Kasey driving the houseboat back to Wahweap...
