Happy Birthday!

Today my Zachary turns two. Now, I may be a little biased, but I think he's the cutest 2 year old ever. He is so full of energy and busy all the time, he loves to be given a task. He does NOT like to hold still to get a picture taken, and he is very strong-willed. You notice he won the war when he insisted on taking a bath with his batman hat on. He is in the top 5% for his age in height & weight, he may end up being the biggest of my three boys. He certainly eats the most. He is rowdy and noisy and we love him.

Labor Day Vacation

Max, Isaac and I made a quick trip to So Cal for Labor Day weekend. We went to the beach and LegoLand, and visited with Grandma K, and Dana, Richard and Jordann. Sunday was Dana's birthday, so we got to see Kim & David that day as well. Tyler and Kacey took care of Zachary while we were gone; we drove this time and he doesn't love being in the car. I think the most memorable thing for the boys was likely the pet chickens at Heimbacks house, and the 'chicken party' they all had on the trampoline. It was a fun little trip!

Life at the Turner's

I guess it is time for my monthly post. Good times!

So you probably stopped checking my Blog for new posts a long time ago, but just in case anyone is still there, I've decided to post a few things.

Zachary doesn't talk much, but one of the few words that he already knows how to say is CHEESE! I have to be quick with the camera (and sneaky) to get a picture of him without him making this lovely face.

Max's First Race
About a month or so ago, Max wanted to go jogging with me. I didn't want him to hold me back, so I suggested he ride his bike or scooter. Nope, he wanted to run. And it turned out it was me holding him back. We have found something that Max loves to do! Shortly after this discovery I got something in the mail about the Eagle Mountain City days and noticed that they have a 1k for the kids. I signed him up thinking he'd probably change his mind, especially when I woke him up to go at 7:30 am on a Saturday. Wrong again. He ran 1k in 4 minutes. (Does this mean I should be running the 5k races in 20 minutes?!) Max has gone running a few more times with me or with his Dad and he still likes doing it. I think we'll try the 1 mile race on the 4th of July.

In his own little world...

Isaac stays busy slinging webs, climbing walls, apprehending villains... the usual. Summer has finally arrived, so we're busy doing lots of summer time fun things. I will try to get some pictures and update my blog again soon.

Finally something to BLOG about!

So I finally did it. I took all 3 children to Disneyland. I haven't been since Max was 2, that was 5 years ago and I swore I wouldn't do it again. I felt like asking a 2 year old to wait in line for 30-60 minutes per ride was ridiculous, so for that reason I had avoided the place. We've been to Sea World a few times and the San Diego Wild Animal Park, but not Disneyland. But Isaac loves characters...i.e. Woody, Buzz, Mickey Mouse, etc. So I decided that since we had a whole week off for spring break last week, we would give it a try. Hoping for fun, but just expecting an exhausting week, Me, Max, Isaac, Zachary, and my two little sisters, Kacey & Kelli headed for the airport last Sunday. Daisy and her two boys drove over from Phoenix. And guess what!? It was fun! Still a little exhausting, but mostly fun! The lines were short, we walked right onto the BuzzLightyear ride twice, the weather was perfect, and we had a good time!

Zachary and Ian spent most of their time here, but plenty was going on around them for entertainment.

We went to the beach in San Clemente and visited Grandma Killpack for 2 days too. The first day there it was a little cool, only about 75 degrees, but day 2 on the beach was perfect! 90 degrees and sunny. I had been avoiding the beach too because last time we went Isaac was 6 months old and that is NOT a fun age at the beach. Zachary is 15 months and he was a lot easier than an infant, so again, pleasantly surprised! We had the beach pretty much to ourselves (except for Mr. Leatherby of course!) and the boys wore themselves out running from waves, looking for sand crabs, throwing rocks in the water and digging in the sand.

Zachary ate lots of sand, he never seemed to tire of it. He always has been my best eater.

So it was lots of fun! I don't know if we'll make it to Disneyland every year, but I'm planning on visiting San Clemente and Grandma Killpack every year from now on.
