Recent Happenings

Well, a couple of Saturdays ago, we decided to go to the fair. It was around 11 AM when we got there, and let me tell you, it wasn't as happening as we thought it would be. I guess people don't usually go to the fair in the morning. But, we did have fun on our little family outing, and a very nice owner of the horse we were admiring said Tucker could have a ride.

A while ago we went to Toquerville Falls with Aunt Elisha and Uncle Ben. It's this place in the middle of nowhere. You wouldn't expect it to be there at all, but it is a river that has a drop off and below the falls there is a place to swim. While we were there, Uncle Ben found a toad and let Tucker hold it.

And yes, Gary is wearing a swimsuit in this next shot--his good old Dolphins.
Here is Tucker playing with Ben & Elisha's dog, Hawkeye.  
He was excited to play in Hawkeye's kennel. Maybe we need to get one of those (jk).
Lily and Trish invited Tucker and I to go the rec center on a day that it was only $1! They had a blast.
Tucker and his daddy are best buddies. Here are some recent (within the last month) Tucker & Daddy moments. 

Now that we are not on a diet anymore, I have been making a lot of cookies. I don't know if that is a good thing. Here Gary and Tucker are just enjoying some milk and cookies together. Tucker is seriously a cookie monster. If he sees a cookie, there's gonna be trouble.

Panguitch from the Other Camera

Taking  a bath and loving it!

Everyone thought it was too cute!
Blowing kisses to his admirers. Oh boy.
Tucker got to ride the 4-wheeler with Uncle Wade. Tucker really did love it. He felt like such a big boy! 
Tucker fell asleep with the little mini Tucker that Aunt Sandy made for him.

I am Tired of Poop

It is only 9:33 AM, and I have already had to clean up two HUGE poopy blow-outs. I am so ready for Tucker to be potty trained!!! When he was littler, it didn't stink near as bad, it wasn't so hard to scrape clean, and he wasn't big enough to fight me the whole time I was cleaning it up. Oh, those were the days! I sooooo want to start potty training him! I used to put Tucker on the toilet when he was grunting like he needed to go, but he doesn't really grunt anymore. I have never potty trained anyone before.  Any ideas of how to go about this?

Panguitch + Bounceback

Well, we are just as lucky as can be to have been able to go to Panguitch Lake to camp for not one, but two reunions. What a wonderful place! 

Also, we got to take our camp trailer out for a try for the first time. It hasn't been used in over 10 years. Gary camped in this little trailer when he was a wee lad, and we finally got a truck so we can take it out.  I had to clean it out real good. Just a few days before we had to leave, I washed the curtains and the couch/bed fold-up cushion covers. This was the result:

So within the last couple of days before we had to leave I was in a sewing frenzy to get us some curtains and a bed cover made.

Here are some great shots of the first time around for the Bolin Family Reunion.
