MAY

I took a little break from blogging the month of May & it was good. We spent the entire month in Utah (with a couple little trips up to Idaho & Montana) where did a lot & got a lot done. We spent the time with family, focusing on the littles & having so much fun.

We flew up to Boise, Idaho the first weekend of May for a family friends wedding that was absolutely gorgeous. I am so happy we decided to go up to her wedding so I could see it all in person & to catch up with our friends. From there we went to Utah where we packed in as many activities as possible. My mom came with us to Utah for a week so we were busy running all over Utah to different restaurants we have been wanting to try, seeing her side of the family & visiting friends. We celebrated Austin's birthday (which happened to land on Mother's day this year) & an early mothers day with dinner at Ruth's Chris, which is always sooo delicious! For his actual birthday & mother's day he woke up early & took Cedar to pick out flowers for me which was so sweet to wake up to, especially since it was his birthday, too. We then ventured up to Park City where we wandered around main street, let the boys run wild & had a delicious brunch. That night after we put the boys to bed we had a stay-at-home date with dinner & a movie, it was the best way to celebrate.

Cedar & Milo started their first round of swimming lessons while we were up there which was really fun! Cedar learned so much in his first month, Milo... not so much! He has a major case of stranger danger & I ended up having to take him in to the pool for every lesson, but he can float on his back by himself now which is so relieving (my mom's house in California has a pool & since we live there & Milo is SO attracted to the water I needed to make sure he could float if he ever happened to fall in, so he can & it is so great. The boys are currently in their second round of swimming lessons here in California & Milo is learning a lot). Austin & I kept ourselves busy for the month. While he worked the boys & I would go on playdates, to the park, the mall & to swimming & once Austin was finished with work we would try & meet up with friends or have them over for dinner & hot tubbing after the kids went to sleep. We also spent a lot of time with Austin's family which was so much fun. Both the boys adore their parents & I love being able to see them all together since they don't get as much time with them.

Austin & I had the opportunity to leave the boys with his parents for 5 days which is the longest we have ever left them! It was really cool/fun/exciting/worrisome/lonely, haha. I missed them so much, but it was good. We left them to go to our friends wedding in Moab where Austin & I camped, so it as really nice not having to worry about them while camping/at the wedding & from there we headed up to Bozeman, Montana for the weekend to go fly fishing with Austin's brother & sister-in-law. Bozeman was so much fun, we spent every day on a river fishing & even though I didn't catch anything (Austin did!), I loved being out on the boat, it was so relaxing. When we got back to Utah from Montana Austin's parents threw Cedar a little pre-birthday party since his birthday was coming up & they had a present for him. It was the cutest thing, they let him pick out the decorations, food & cake - which were all dinosaur themed.

The Month went by fast & was so much fun. Now for a total photo dump :)
