Wheeler Farm

We decided to get some pictures taken of all the grandchildren with my parents since we aren't together all that often. My sister's friend took the pics. She made it fast and bearable for all the kids. A chicken decided to come up and get in the middle of things and it freaked Oscar right out, plus he had just had his 2 year checkup and got a couple of shots so he wasn't in the best of moods. I think the pictures turned out cute of all the kids!

Afterwards we walked around and looked at the animals. The kids got to see pigs, horses, cows, chickens, ducks, rabbits and tractors. Not as exciting as I thought it would be but they didn't seem to mind. As long as they were outside being able to run around it seemed like everyone was happy.

We sure had a good time while Aunt Jennica was in town! We are going to miss her and her cute boys! Thanks for all the fun times!

Oscar Turns 2

The Birthday Boy!
What a fun day (or I should say night as I spent all day preparing for the party). Oscar had a Curious George Birthday Party. We enjoyed navajo tacos, cake and ice cream. He loved opening his presents and was so excited with everything he got. He is a lucky boy! He ran and played the night away. I can't believe he is already 2. Where did the time go! He is such a sweet boy. Deke and I talk every night before we go to bed how lucky we are to have him and how happy he makes us. He is the BEST thing we have ever done! Our life is much brighter with him in it.

Here are a few pics from the event.

He loved unwrapping the presents and did pretty good at staying focused.

Making sure he got EVERYTHING out of the sack.

Curious George Cake (didn't turn out as cute as the pic, but it was our first time making fondant.)

Enjoying himself some cake and ice cream

Running around having a good time messy face and all!

I am so thankful that my sister Jen came and helped me in the kitchen ALL afternoon. We were busy putting together the birthday cake and cooking all the scones. If she wouldn't of been here I don't know what I would of done. I wasn't expecting everything to be so time consuming. Everything turned out Great, so it was worth all the work! Thanks to everyone that came and celebrated with us!

A Fun Filled Month of August

August was been a busy but fun month! Oscar and I started the month off taking a Mom and Tot swimming class. I didn't know what to expect and was a little disappointed with it at first. Oscar loved going to the pool everyday for 2 weeks but the last week the big pools heater went out so we never spent much time in that pool. It just got a little crazy in the little kid pool because ALL the kids didn't want to get in the big pool and would somehow end up over with the little kids making for a crazy little pool. Some of Oscar's favorite things to do is kick his legs, blow bubbles and spin around fast. For the most part he loved it. And it was nice to have something going on everyday plus he came home had lunch and took a long nap which was nice for mom!

My sister Jennica came into town from Washington with her 3 boys for 2 weeks, so we had tons of activities for the cousins to do together. It was fun to take Oscar to go and see a few things. We took the kids to the aquarium in Sandy. He loved watching the big fish and the penguins. I think he just liked walking around and acting like he was one of the big kids.

We took the kids to the Gateway Discovery Museum. Bonus for us it was free that day some business was sponsoring everyone that day. The kids had fun playing with all the exhibits. We waited in line FOREVER, so everyone could get their own custom balloon (so not worth it!). Overall a very fun way to spend an afternoon.
Oscar is so lucky to have such fun cousins! They love him so much and are so good to play with him and include him. He seriously thinks that he is just as big as they are. A bonus for me waiting so long to have kids is now my nieces and nephews are old enough to take care of my little boy.

4th of July Parade

Oscar's favorite summer time treat, Otter Pops

Don't mind the hat that is a little bit small. Any protection from the sun is good right.

Oscar's favorite part of the parade was the Horses. He didn't like the sirens at all this year (they didn't seem to bother him last year). We enjoyed 2 BBQ's and hanging out with our families! When it was time for fireworks we didn't feel like dealing with traffic so we just did some at my parents house. Oscar HATED them! He freaked out! We were glad we didn't take him to see the big ones at Sandy City. I think he was so tired that he just couldn't enjoy the fireworks. Oh well there is always the 24th right.

I didn't want Oscar to have the same 4th of July shirt as all the other kids and found a tutorial on a blog for this one and decided to make it for him. I loved it! Not that I am a little bias but I think he looked adorable!

Fun Day at the Pool

Since Deke didn't have to work on Friday we decided it was time to head to the pool. Oscar loved the pool last year, so I was excited to take him. We went to a pool in Stansbury instead of the Peak. It had 2 different pools; a little one for the little kids that was only 1 feet deep and then a bigger pool. Oscar loved the little pool he could walk around in. We took him into the big pool and he didn't like it so much, the water was freezing! i was glad to get out with him and head back to the little kid pool. Since the big pool was so cold the little kid pool was so crowded with some older kids. The older kids were really cute with Oscar. They shared their rocket and asked him to say all sorts of words for them. He loved getting the attention. He was super excited when his cousin Kaylee showed up and wanted to be with her in the big pool, but Dad couldn't hold him just Kaylee. We will be heading back to the pool more this summer. I am going to sign us up for a Mom and Tot class which should be fun.

Can't get enough of this song!!

Deke played this song for Oskie and me on Saturday and I seriously have listened to it 30 times! So catchy! It is from a group called Fun and the name of the song is "All the Pretty Girls". I totally dig the lead singers outfit :) (funny he even refers to a girl being stuck in the 80's in the song)

Last night after Oscar had a bath he wanted to read books. Oscar loves books. Most of the time he just wants to turn the pages but every once in a while he will sit through a whole book for me to read. Last night was one of those occasions. Deke always thinks it is funny to see Oscar with a binkie in his mouth so he gave him one last night. Oscar took a binkie for about the first month of his life and then has had nothing to do with it. So we always get a laugh when he puts it in his mouth. He looks pretty cute with it in. I surely don't want it to become a habit now though!
