the fourth.

This years fourth of July was pretty low key.
Branson and the office worked a half day which was nice.
He got off around five and everyone headed to the park for a big BBQ.
We grubbed on some delicious fattening food and then the boys played a game of softball.
They tied 20 to 20 and couldn't keep playing because it got dark.
A rematch is in order soon I'm sure.

Some of the "Vivint Wives" watching the game.

My little boyfriend.

 The babes in the office. 
Mason (left) had his head back and spit up all over his face.
Too funny not to get a picture of. Sweet boys.

 All the wives/fiances/girlfriends.

 Love these boys so incredibly much.

I love America!

Galveston and Crocodiles.

The first half of our summer selling was spent in Beaumont, Texas.  
One of my lovely friends, Brittany, is from there. 
She and her cute family left Utah (sadly) and moved back about a year ago.
When B told me we would be living in Beaumont for a little while, I was so excited!
I loved spending time with her and her awesome family.
[Thanks for your hospitality Britt...and, of course, for the fun times!]
We miss them already!

Our friend Lynds and her baby Rowen came out to Beaumont for a week to visit.
While she was here we went to the beach in Galveston.
We took a ferry and fed the seagulls with some bread that Britt brought.
With my luck of getting pooped on (good ol' high school days) I was a little freaked out.
Plus they got REALLY close and I didn't want them to take off with my little boy. haha.

 We grubbed on some burgers at a cute restaurant on the water and then headed to the beach!

We also went to see some Crocs while Lynds was here!  
It's a must while living in Texas!

This guy is nuts.

Parker is sporting Ro's hat cuz I'm a bad mom and forgot his. 

I wish I had more pictures from the time we spent in Beaumont. 
It was such a fun month and a half.
Love these people to death!

eight months.

Our little bub turned 8 months old today.
He is growing up so fast and he is more fun than ever!

*He now has his bottom two teeth.  They came in at the same time and he was such a trooper!
*He claps his hands, gives high fives, and is starting to sign "all done."
*Crawls like a mad man.
*Pulls himself up onto everything... especially in his pack n play.
*He loves laughing at the minions from Despicable Me.  The preview came on during a movie and he burst out laughing.  He was absolutely enthralled. It made our day.
*Loves green drinks and mom's beat juice.
*He makes the best facials.  He does this new thing where he scrunches his nose and breathes in and out really fast.  He knows mom and dad love it, so he does it all the time.
*Quickly growing out of his size 3 diapers.
*Loves mom's jewelry.
*When he is super tired or needs to expend some energy, he will fling his arms and legs SUPER fast back and forth.  Branson and I have both tried it and don't know how he does it.  
He seriously has abs like no other.
*Thanks to his friend Annabelle he had his first mouthful of donut. She [a two year old] came up and shoved a piece of it in his mouth when we weren't looking. It was hilarious.
*He says both "mama" and "dada" although we aren't sure he knows their meaning yet.
*He loves to copy us and will try just about anything we do.  He shakes his head no, which we are quickly trying to change to nodding yes. 
*Avocados seem to be his favorite food.  Odd, because I have an intolerance to them. Figures.

Happy 8 month birthday baby boy!
