Yesterday I took Talan to Gymboree, it was his 2nd week in class. I didn't bring my camera last week so I decided to take some pictures this week. Plus, this week he was a little more comfortable in class. Last week he was so shy! It was funny because he is NEVER shy! This week he wasn't at all, he got right in there with the rest of the kids. They have so much fun. They play, sing and dance for 45 minutes and at the end they are so tired...its perfect! He takes the best naps when we get home! Anyways, here are some pictures from the class.

Nascar Race

Saturday we went to the Nascar race at the California Speedway. AJ and Jaime brought their motorhome and they camped in the infield. Here are some pictures from the race! I tried to take some of the cars as they drove by, but they went fast so they aren't great pictures. Talan love it but he didn't really want to keep his headset on! 

8 Weeks To Go!

Here is my 32 Week belly shot, well more like 32 weeks, 4 Days...but close enough!


I just wanted to share this cute little thing I made on It is a really cool website that you can upload pictures and make "scrapbook" stuff, way easier than doing the cut and paste type scrapbooks! Isn't this cute??

4D Ultrasound Scans

Last week we went to get a 4D ultrasound done so we could see what our new baby looks like. Unfortunately he didn't want to be seen last week. The ultrasound tech told us that he was head down, facing my back. So we went back yesterday for a rescan and we got a couple pics. He moved his face a little but was still in a bad position so they couldn't get a lot of pictures. Here are the few that we got, I have to admit they all look the same to me except for the one where he has his mouth open! Having these done made me more anxious for him to be here! I can't wait to meet him!

Valentine's Day 2009

I just wanted to share a few pictures from our Valentines day. My mom came over and watched Talan so Mark and I could go to go to dinner and a movie, a rare treat!! Mark actually sat through the whole movie!

 I also took a picture of my 31 week belly. I really have been slacking off with taking pictures of this pregnancy. With Talan I took them every week. I think this is only my second picture that I have taken! I will try to do it for the 9 weeks that I have left!

Happy Sweet 16 Kiely!!!

Can you believe it?? Kiely turned 16 yesterday. I think Mark is in shock. It has definitely flown by and we are so proud of the young woman she is turning out to be. We love you Kiely!!

Talan's Mini Cooper

Here is a cute video of Talan testing out his Valentine's Day gift from Grandma Linda! It is a remote control mini cooper. He couldn't figure out how to make it work! So he just gave up and gave me kisses instead.

Race Day

I don't have a ton of pictures from this day because it was raining like crazy! The start of the race was really good. AJ completed the first lap and he was in 3rd place. Mark took off in the car for the second lap and an arm broke on the car so he had to come back and get it fixed. At this point it was pouring down buckets of rain. Mark hadn't done a whole lap yet so AJ got back in and he was doing really well, eventually working his way up to 1st place, but the rain was just too much and the car had some problems. They couldn't finish the race, but no one in that class finished! So for what it's worth, they finished the furthest of all in their class! I think that means they won!! 
Here are some pics from the race day!

Parker 425

Today was the day that the guys took the racecar down to contingency to get it all checked out for the race. When they got back they just had to do a few things to it and Talan and Cade were so cute, they definitely wanted to help get it ready! They take after their daddy's for sure!

This last pic is just too cute not to post. Margie, Jaime's mom brought this cage for her dog Shasta, and Talan absolutely loved it. He locked himself in there and didn't want to come out. Maybe I should get him one for home! Haha!

Off to the Races~Day 1

It has been way too long since my last update...sorry about that! Well anyways, we just got back from a long weekend in Parker, AZ. We went for the Parker 425, a race that Mark's brother AJ races every year. These are pictures from the first day there. It was so beautiful there and we took the Rhino's and our Teryx to watch the big trucks qualify. Talan loves to ride in the back in his little seat!
