outings, easter, gymnastics!

Although we welcomed Story into our lives this year, it has been one filled with lots of special moments with Boston. I think because we now have two, we made a special effort to have quality time with just Boston. Its sort of neat becasue Story goes to sleep every night at 7:30 and being the late night eaters that we are, we always get to have dinner just the three of us. I love hearing all the funny things Boston has to say and having that quiet time every day to let him know I love him. So starting from longest ago to most recent, here are some things you missed.
We were able to go to Disney on Ice with Boston. I think we were more excited than he was. It was kind of a precurser to Disney Land which we hope to do this summer, and we were just as excited . Boston did love it, but he wanted to walk down the stairs and see the skaters up close, he didn't understand the whole stay in your seat thing. So it was really fun, but Boston was a little grumpie.

We also got to go to 6 flags for Jason's 26th Birthday. You might not be able to tell but Boston is on the ride with Jator, although i think Jason would have had just as much fun! haha, no he loved riding it with bubba!

We decided to leave Story with a baby sitter so that we could really enjoy the day. It was such a stinkin blast. Tons of kids rides at this one. Boston did a ton of rides, and even his first roller coaster with me, but i will never take him on that one again. it was so dangerous and jerky. They also had a splash zone which Boston got completely soaked in. It was so funny because jason and i were sitting there talking while Boston was playing in the water and all of the sudden we got completely soaked! We looked up expecting to see some punk kid, and we were surprised to see a little girl standing there looking as surprised as we were. I guess she had placed her foot just right over the hole where water came out and it came our direction. All the sudden she looked less surpised and more kniving. She had figured out what she had done and was about to do it again, so Jason and i got up and ran before she could get us again. I love laughing with that guy.
It was so different than most theme parks i had been to. It was so lush and green with tons of animals, seaworld type attractions, and even a butterfly house. It was such a great family place.

Look at all these manly men pushing strollers in the park! We love these guys!

Easter was particularly special this year because Boston was old enough to die eggs, hunt for eggs, and even talk about the savior. I love easter. There are no gifts to exchange, only special traditions and time to think about Jesus and that he lives and what that means to us. In church someone told us that she had checked her facebook that morning and her friends status read, "It is true, He is risen, the tomb is empty" i loved that, and i love that people are using social networking to show their faith, so i changed my status to that as well.
I never documented last years easter, so here is a picture of Boston. It was in Provo and it was like 20 degrees outside, we made him take his coat off for the pic, i know we are evil, haha, but look how big he is getting.

Boston also just graduated from the gymnastics toddler class with parent participation to the Tumble Bunnies! It was so exciting, they had this big circus themed show for the kids and i was so proud of him, and i was ablsolutely glowing at his first big boy class! I love you so much Boston Bear!

P.S. Boson can pick up things with his toes just like me! A really helpful talent when you are pregnant or otherwise to lazy to lean down and pick up things with your hands. I have used it in public a few times and got some weird looks! haha, but that happens anyway when your me! ;)
