Wade is a very clean child, clean in that he hates anything sticky or slimy to be on his hands. When he turned one, I had to force his hands into his cake because he was quite content to just pick the sprinkles off. He also refuses to eat hot dogs, bananas and even cupcakes unless I feed them to him. My family tends to make fun of him for this, so I wanted to post this picture as proof that he will get messy on occasion if given a good enough reason. The reason...fresh out of the oven, ooey-gooey chocolate chip cookies!

(Look Em, it's even up his arms!)

Summer is Here

To celebrate the beginning of summer we decided to go to a Bees baseball game for family night. It was a perfect night for a ball game, and we were surprised at how much more exciting the game was than the DC Nationals...although, is that really surprising? We will always love the Nationals, but let's face it, they are terrible.

Wade had his first taste of Cotton Candy, which he loved much to his dad's chagrin.

We went camping up Cottonwood Canyon with Mark and Amy. Phil and Mark spent a good portion of the night being pyromaniacs.

Wade slept better than everyone else, and was a great little heater for his mom!

And who doesn't love homemade strawberry jam made from freshly picked strawberries?

This has definitely been a great start to summer!

Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to the three greatest fathers in my life! They are such great men and I am so thankful for each of their examples.

Look a like

So everyone always says that Wade looks SO much like Phil, but I'm tired of him always getting all the credit. I finally came across some baby pictures of me, which I think proves that Wade has some of me in him too!

Dancing Lessons

Wade has a toy that makes noise that he loves to dance to. I managed to catch him dancing with my beautiful wife.

Then Wade made me take him for a horse back ride.
