Since I can't reach into the tub to bathe Maddux very well these days, Drew has been an amazing dad and taken over bath time every night. When they are done, I hear Drew say, "Ok, go scare mommy". And in runs this "SCARY" Dinosaur and he yells "RRRROOOAAR". It's the most UNscary "roar" you've ever heard and it makes me laugh every night still.
My mom bought him this towel and it's supposed to be a cute Dr. Seuss character. He thinks he is a scary dinosaur.

Bounce Jungle

This place is my new obsession. Talk about a great way to get some energy out of a VERY energetic kiddo! I took 34 pictures while we were there the first time and 30 of them turned out blurry because he wouldn't hold still!!

I LOVED Easter this year. Everything about it was awesome. Saturday night we dyed eggs and tried to teach Maddux a little bit about why we have Easter. All he remembers is "Jesus came back. Jesus is happy"! Good enough for me!Sunday morning we had an egg hunt at our house before heading to my parents house for breakfast, conference, and another egg hunt.

They spoke a lot about trials and how we have the ability to choose how to react and handle our trials. We can question our faith, get angry and upset or we can use them as a way to grow and strengthen our faith. LOVED it!!!We had both sides of the fam over to our house for Easter dinner. It was yummy and the company was so fun! I wish I had taken pictures of everything, but I did remember to get one of my cake that I was so excited about!! My dad was kind enough to decorate the top with this horned-peep while I wasn't looking. :) After Maddux was asleep and the family was gone, Drew and I sat and talked about what a great Easter it was. I feel very blessed and I love my family so much!

"Birthday to YOOOOU!!!"

Yesterday was a great birthday. I had a ton of fun and got spoiled by my friends and family. Thank you everyone!

The absolute highlight of my day was after we put Maddux to sleep. He had been upstairs and quiet for about 45 minutes and we can hear this.....

He was "singing" for about 3-5 minutes but I couldn't find the camera fast enough. I only caught the tail end and I think he heard us giggling outside his door and stopped.

The first part of the song was, "birthday to you!!! momma!! yay!! birthday to yooooouuuu! birthday momma yooouu!!!"
