Halfway There

Here is your official belly shot, Janelle. Finally 20 weeks! I thought it would never come.

(Jay "helping" me pick weeds)

Joe, Jay, and I were all riding on the bench seat of Joe's carpet cleaning van with Jay in the middle. Jay grabbed both of our arms and made Joe and I hold hands. Then he started playing with my wedding ring.
Jay: "Mommy, take off your ring."
Me: "Jay, I can't take off my ring. Do you know what this ring means?"
Jay: "No."
Me: "It means Mommy and Daddy are married and we'll be together forever. And you will be ours forever too."
Jay: "Oh... Where's my ring?"

Today, I was lazy and wore my hair in pig tails.
Me: "Jay, do you like Mommy's pig tails?"
Jay (grabbing both pig tails): "No... this one's an elephant tail and this one's a monkey tail."

I'm trying to not take the elephant tail comment as a reference to my growing belly. But it's hard not to when more than once lately Jay has referred to me as his "Big Mommy".

"Sisters, Sisters"

My sister, Amy, finally came to visit St. George! It was a blast. She brought her four adorable little boys... And her husband of course. Unfortunately, I only got a few pictures of the adults in the background with no real proof that we were actually having fun. So you'll have to take my word for it. But I got plenty of the kids.

We did a ton of fun stuff...

We went hiking in Zion's.

Had an Easter Egg Hunt.

And went to a super cool park in Colorado City.

The best part about the park... and probably my sister's visit... was a huge slide that ran down the side of a hill.

If you slide on a blanket, you go really fast.

Those polygamists know how to party.

We also hit a splash park on Saturday while the husbands went to Las Vegas, but I didn't bring my camera. We had fun at the park but not as much fun as the guys who went to three or four buffets in a 10 hour period of time! Apparently, they both got sick but somehow still loved it.

Oh well, it was so awesome to have my sister's family here. Come again anytime Amy!
