First Fathers Day!
Thank you Daddy for being the first one to hold me.
Thank you Daddy for rocking me back to sleep each night in the hospital so mommy could sleep.
Thank you Daddy for being worthy to hold the priesthood so that I could be blessed into the church.
Thank you Daddy for being excited to see me each day, and playing with me whenever you're home.
Thank you Daddy for taking me swimming and putting up with all the accessories mommy insists on!
Thank you Daddy for helping mommy giving me my first hair cut, so I could look just like you.
Thank you Daddy for being the Best Daddy in the world. I am so glad I chose you!
First time Swimming in our pool
We took Bryson to the pool! He wasn't too sure what to think, but decided it was lots of fun!

Mo-hawk with wet hair (check)
Great time! (check)
Bryson was born with lots of hair on the back of his head, which turned into a mullet, SO Daddy insisted that we cut it! Bryson did really good and sat really still in his bumbo chair. He has always loved his hair combed and washed ... so it didn't surprise us! And yes, in case you are wondering, those are Scrapbook scissors!
First Attempt at Adam's Birthday Cake
Each time Adam and I go to visit my parents in Orem, we always have to stop of at one of our favorite restaurants, Carabbas. We always get the BEST dessert. It is called Dessert Rosa. It doesn't look anything like it, tasted similar, but I guess we will just have to get the real deal next time we head up north.
HAPPY 29th BABE! I LOVE YA! OH Bryson and I gave him fishing stuff and a new IPOD so he can listen to music at work!
First time on the lake
The Gardners, (Adam's brother's, in-laws and the people who bought our dinner when we met ... inevitably ... the reason we met) invited us on the lake for a day on their houseboat. It was a really windy day and so we didn't do much other than visit and ride the wave runners. Anyway you have it, it was a fantastic day ... SO great to see their family and just get out of our "Dam town" for the day! Bryson didn't love the wind, or his life jacket. We could barely snap the top clip because of his chubby little cheeks, but he did seem to like the bouncing boat from the choppy waters.
First time meeting uncle Trent
Okay, so it's really not an Uncle, but it is one of Adam's best friends from High School who came to stay with us for a week. It was great to have a friend around and try to entertain. Adam and Trent got to take the Rhino to the Peria overlook.
Addy's First time to Lake Powell
Marney and Erik came down for Erik's "High School friend testosterone week outing". Marney and the boys stayed with me, and Erik went out on the boat with his friends. Because of some problems with the boat Justin and Jared got to stay with me, instead of with daddy on the beach for some of the time. Bryson LOVED having his cousins around, and I enjoyed the company of my sister. I really miss my family and so it was just what the doctor ordered! We even got to bring some dutch oven potatoes to the boys on the beach one night. It was really fun!
Last but not least
FIRST TIME finding his feet and playing with toys
Bryson finally got the Hand to eye coordination down and is starting to entertain himself! With mommy going back to work, this has become REALLY nice! He is getting so big and more and more fun! We love our little man!
