So, I have been in Colorado visiting Bev and missing Tate really bad!!! He has been doing really good in Texas getting trained for a job he is doing this summer and I am waiting for nothing really anymore, besides the fact that I am running in the Wasatch Back in June and want to do that so I am waiting to go down till then. Anyway, so I was wanting really really bad to fly out to Austin and visit him and surprise him. So I was thinking I was very sneaky and planning this whole thing out, while to my surprise Tate was doing the same exact thing, but just one step ahead of me. So all the people that I was talking about it to, was convincing me to wait a little bit to get my ticket just to see and make sure. So, that is what I did! We have been planning this little adventure to the Zoo in Denver and went Saturday morning. Right when we got there we went to the Lion area, well, because that was at the first of the zoo, and we were all just hanging out there for a while, which I wasn't sure why, but didn't really think much of it. So while we were trying really hard to see the lions, this person tapped me on the shoulder and said, "excuse me, could you show me where the lions are?" I turn around and BAM! THERE HE IS! I was so SHOCKED! I honestly have never been so surprised in my life! I had Kasen in my arms and when I turned around and saw Tate I put Kasen down, for what reason I don't know, and walked away, in complete surprise! I come back to him and give him a big HUG! Kasen was so sweet, he didn't really know what was going on but just sat in Tate's arms and snuggled with him! So this past weekend was just So dang awesome. I missed him so much and if you can believe it, he missed us even more I think! So we have had so much fun this weekend being together and enjoying being a little family before he had to leave again! It was the best surprise I have ever had!!! I love him so dang much. I am just honestly so grateful to have a husband who I miss and who misses me and our son. That makes me love him so much more:) He is so dang sweet with me and with Kasen and he is the BEST Dad in the whole world. he is so patient with Kasen and loves teaching him new things. He is the best example of hard work and determination and doing things, anything, to support his family. And He loves Me:) What more could a girl ask for:)

Mom and Kasen
Aunt Bev and Kasen! So Cute
Watching the Circus!
Me and Bev! so fun!
This was the creepiest one there I think. An eel, it was so ugly and I just didn't like it very much;)
Kasen playing at the park. It was so unbelievably windy there. I never would have thought that a day could be windier than Talmage, but it proved me wrong here. I just think this is a cute one of his personality....silly. He is saying "cheese"
I think that this was toward the beginning where we say Turtles. He loves loves loves turtles. And makes me read his turtle book like a million times when we get in the car. Good thing I have it memorized.
Ethan and Kasen in front of the Sign!
Us looking at a REALLY cool bird that was up high. Kasen really really liked it.
His classic face the whole time we were there.
The beginning of our Aquarium trip. And these big jaws!!
On the way to church. I parted his cute hair like a little missionary and I thought he just looked so dang handsome. I try to do this and then Tate always makes it spikey:) Tate wasn't here to mess it up this time...plus Tate isn't here to give him another hair cut which he really needs:)

Tuesday, we were just hanging out in the afternoon. Bev went in to do some laundry. Kasen proceeded to follow. ON the way he saw the bathroom and told Bev, "Potty" "Potty"... She said jana I think that he wants to go potty! It was so dang cute because he really wanted to go all by himself. What was funny he yelled at me everytime I started taking pictures of him. Luckily I hurried and snapped some before he was too mad at me or too imbarrassed:) Anyway, he wiped his "Pee Pee" and his "poo poo" and flushed, washed his hands and got his diaper and pants right back on!!!! WHAT? He didn't actually really poo and pee but I thought that was pretty AWESOME of my 19 month old! I think that he just thinks that it's fun....he hasn't been interested today about it. That was just one crazy thing that had happened...I was so proud of my smart little man!
Bev has a friend who has a brother who manages a small movie theater here in Ft. Collins.. We went to the movie Hannah Montana yesterday and it was so fun because we got the theater to ourselves and didn't have to pay:) Yeah. Kasen did really great for about 1 and 1/2 hours then just wanted to leave right away! He loved the popcorn and drink of course! It was just so much fun because we could talk as loud as we wanted to and take pictures it was cool!!!
Us at the MOVIE! My sweet little man who is growing up so fast. I wish that I wasn't so dang tired and so I could write down the things that I need to remember! He is so smart! He honestly knows at least half of the alphabet and says the letters! He is talking so well and understand really great for how young he is! It's so much fun being his mom right now. I just love him so much!

Brit, Jos, and Bev....cute pic!
We have had a fun and busy last few weeks. Between Easter, My older brother Jerry getting married, nephew birthday parties, sleepovers, and Tate's graduation it's been a blast! Here is what has been going on!!!
Sweet Kimber. During Ice cream and cake time she just pulled up her chair, went where no one was bothering her and put up her feet and relaxed while she ate her ice cream and cake. it was awesome! She is so dang cute!
Grandpa playing with Kasen adn Colt. SO FUN!
Tate's graduation. Him and clayton walking to their seats. It was cool because Pres. MOnson was their commencement speaker and it was just really neat to see him in that setting and even though it wasn't church organized or anything I could feel his spirit radiating and it was just so neat to be so close to him. He gave a great speech and was really fun!
