Whew....we have discovered that Isaiah only likes to sleep in teh car when its a 20 min drive home and we don't want him to fall asleep because it will completely negate his nap. When we're in the car for 8 hours and are planning on him napping so he's not a crying mess, he refuses. Well....it wasn't that bad. He did sleep for 30 min in the car in place of his 2 hour nap and overall the drive to ABQ went well. We had a wonderful time there though, including sopapillas, the Abq aquarium, a short mountain hike, seeing cousins, lots of green chile and of course granny and gramps. I had to be selective in the great pictures so it must have been a good time!

Finally! The landscaping to the front of our house is finally completed. We started this project I think in november. It's been a long time coming. I'm posting the before pictures again because its been so long since I posted those! We're enjoying it though!

So I know one of these days I'm supposed to start feeling old or getting upset about my age, but I really still think that 31 is so young...well...maybe not so young, but young at least. Despite John ordering AARP for me and telling me that he's going to get wrinkle cream for me next year, the age thing isn't a thing yet. So I had an awesome birthday yesterday, mostly because it was john's day off so I got to get myself a pedicure and we went out to dinner and John made me a cake (which I think the wilson girls bartered that into the wedding vows that the husbands had to agree to make a cake for their wives for their entire marriage - right hol?). So anyway, here are two pics from my birthday, you'll notice the lack of candles on the cake because we didn't have any so I had to scrounge. I don't actually think I'm turning 21. the 2 candle is from hannah's b-day last year and the balloon candle is the last remaining candle from her birthday party.

Hannah has a friend Caroline that is very dear to her. Caroline is 1 month older than Hannah and the last couple of times they have seen each other they really like holding hands and giving each other hugs. Below are some pics from our last trip to the zoo along with some other random ones of the kids...

Besides the wind sweeping down the plains blowing our bbq all over, we had a great memorial day BBQ with good friends and good food! The kids had a ball playing in the dirt pile (why didn't we get one of these before?)
kids with the dirt pile....
