Sunday Afternoon Slumbers

Our family loves to take Sunday afternoon naps! It's been working out really well for the last little while. Haden stays awake during all of church and we're able to get him to sleep after his 1 pm bottle. Mommy loves the nap time too!

This is how I just found Haden sleeping. He's so sweet!

And we all agree that the "waking up" is the hardest thing to do!

Last Thursday my mom took a fall. She was watering her flowers and must have tripped over the hose. Unfortunately, she broke her fall with her face. There were no broken bones! That's something we can be grateful for.

She and Dad made a quick trip to the ER. I met up with them there. Her dentures cracked during the impact and the inside of her top lip got squished into the crack! Poor thing! We got her all cleaned up and the physicians assistant gave her a numbing agent. After that her lip was good to get some stitches. Only two! I was amazed. The sweetest part was that Mom asked me to come sit and hold her hand while she got the stitches. It was a tender moment for me. I couldn't really do much, but I was able to be there for her comfort.

She took the weekend and two days of watching Haden off. She missed him so much! She's doing much better now. The swelling is down. Her bruising is more wide-stretched, but much lighter. On the mend!

Warning. . . . . Lots of pictures ahead. ENJOY!!!

What an amazing couple of months! I turned 30, James and I had our ACTUAL first Mother's and Father's Days, we took a fantastic family vacation & little Haden Grew some more teeth and is almost 10 months old! Super Crazy!

For our family vacation we piled fourteen (yes, that's actually 14)bodies into 2 rented Suburbans! We, along with James' parents, siblings and their children, drove to Oceanside, CA. We stopped in Las Vegas to stay the night on our way there and then in St. George on our way home. We did so many fun things. We went to Sea World, San Diego Zoo, Legoland, the San Diego Temple & Universal Studios. The last day we were there we went to the pier area of Oceanside. There was a super fun street fair going on. They had lots of fun treats.

We came home and had just about a week to plan our annual Fireworks BBQ for the 4th of July. It was so much fun! Daren and James made some amazing burgers. Imagine: ground burger and pork. Add a little garlic, Worcestershire sauce and other multiple seasonings. Throw in some crispy bacon pieces and make your patties. Make 'em thin because we're going to throw some shredded cheese on a patty and top it all with another patty. Squish 'em together and get a good seal. That's what I call a bacon cheeseburger! Dad Tibbitts brought over a HUGE grill that he's been storing for a few years. Add great company and things blowing up. . . . that's a fantastic party!
