February Fun!

Life has been fun and a little crazy since we moved to Salt Lake! We are all getting situated; Danny is liking his job, Taylor is havin fun at his new school and we love living close to more family. We've had a lot going on, so here is the summary.
We celebrated a fun Valentine's weekend with Taylor's sixth birthday. He wanted hundreds of cupcakes for his party, and he ate three. He is growing up so fast, and is a fun, helpful, cute little boy. We are so happy to have him in our family.
Isaac is finally crawling! He just learned all the sudden last week, and is getting into trouble already. He got into a plant, started playing with phone chargers, and rolled down the stairsall in one day. He is keeping himself (and us)busy. He is still a sweet, snuggly baby, who loves all the attention on him.

Last week Brett, Teresa and their kids came to spend the week. Taylor, Emily and Isaac all had lots of fun playing with Jeffrey, Mary and Spencer. We took the kids to an indoor play place, museums, hot tubbing, sledding, etc... It was a great week.

These two are so cute! Isaac looks albino next to Spencer.

This group loves to eat! They were sitting at the bar every hour or two asking for more food. The kids really miss their cousin, and were asking if we could move to Arizona to live near them.

We moved!

The weekend of Martin Luther King Day Grandma & Grandpa Shields and aunt Natalie came to Boise for a visit. We had a fun weekend; going to McCall, sitting in the Hot Springs, eating at our favorite restaurant "Tony's". We also celebrated their Birthdays.

Then just two weeks later, we were loading up our stuff to move to Utah. This is Emily with her bike. She is getting really good at riding her bike with training wheels. The only problem is when her dress gets caught in the spokes.

Taylor and Isaac sitting in our garage full of stuff and getting ready to make the move. Isaac is almost 11 months and he is still not really crawling. He is a fat, happy baby who likes to sit in one spot.

Here is a picture of our family right before Taylor and Emily left for Utah. We owe a HUGE thanks to Uncle Marcus for driving to Eagle to pick up the kids. It was so nice of him and we really appreciate his help as well as all the other family members and friends who helped us. We couldn't have done it without you!
We are excited to move to Salt Lake, but we will always have a soft spot in our heart for Boise Idaho!
