Ok, so Patrick is almost walking but as he is learning to do so he is pulling him self up on everything. Lately he has been pulling him self up on the kitchen cupboards and eventually opening them and trashing my whole somewhat clean kitchen floor. I have been on this clean kick lately and since we have gotten back from camping, I am still trying to catch up, soooooo any little mess he makes is quite unappreciated (she says in a high pitched annoyed voice). oooooooohhhhh but when I tell him no, he just smiles at me and when I shake my head he does it back at me with a little bit more enthusiasm then I would like. But I cant help but smile at his sweet face and absolute indifference to my wishes. I also have to consider that he is cutting two new teeth which will bring his count to eight and if I had two new sharp objects trying to break their way through my gums, I wouldnt be a happy camper either.

Ok, so I was able to go to the most awesome thing the night of the 24th. Mom, Sara, Stephanie, Janea and I went to see the Broadway musical Wicked in LA. I have listened to the music on cd but I never new all of the story so it was amazing to finally see the actual thing. It was amazing. It even had Carol Kane in it. She was soooo good. The music was beautiful, the actors were incredible and I couldnt believe I was there. I almost cried at the end. I would go do it again in a heartbeat. So far the only shows I have seen have been, The Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, and Riverdance and now I can add Wicked. AWESOME doesnt even say it.

Well we didnt have the greatest fourth of July but it was Patricks first so I had to get some good pictures. We got up early and had breakfast then we went over to Mom and dads to enjoy some good barbeque. We invited some people over for swimming and some good eatin' and in the process, Patrick picked up a bug. He woke up from his nap with a 100.4 temperature, which for him was high. The rest of the day we spent giving him tylenol and holding him to keep his fever down. He was so lathargic that it was scary. We all know how absolutely wiggly he is. We finally decided to give him a blessing. Minutes later his temperature was down enough for him to watch a few big fireworks from Mom and Dads country club down the street then he went to bed. It was a great time. We had the Elingers and their little Noah, we had Courtney, Dillan, and Zoie Potter. We had the Cory Randalls and last but not least we had Mandi and Stephen Russell. We all had a good time playing with the kids and talking. Hopefully next year will be better. God Bless America!!!
Here's Patrick showing his patriotism
A classic picture for years to come
Caleb, although naked, loves America too!
I think this picture speaks for itself

Well, I have to apologize to my dear husband for not posting anything about our anniversary on the 24th. I am such a bad wife, booo! Jesus and I celebrated our second wedding anniversary last Sunday and I am so happy to be married to him. I am so lucky to have such a wonderful man to support us and love us as much as he does. The day I met him, I knew he was the one for me. I will post a picture of us back when we were just too dang cute as an engaged couple.
