Disneyland!!

Chad and I took Tyler to Disneyland on Thursday (my birthday). We decided to leave Tanner at home with a friend as we just didn't think he was ready to enjoy a day at Disney quite yet. We had SO much fun. Tyler loved all the rides and had a blast meeting his favorite characters. There were little to no lines so we were able to do everything and end the night with the parade. When we got back in the car to head home it took all of 3 minutes before Tyler was fast asleep. We were all tired but had so much fun at the happiest place on earth.

Happy Birthday Tyler!

Wow, 3 years ago today Tyler entered this world. 8 pounds, 10 oz at 3:22 am. Everyone always says "enjoy your children, they grow up so fast". Not until you become a parent do you truely understand that statement. Tyler is so inquisitive, loving, full of energy, talkative, and an all round wonderful son. We are so blessed and look forward to the many wonderful years to come.

When I learned that you were coming I was sure that you would be,
the most wonderful and precious child that I would ever see.
I was fearful, but excited, I was anxious, but prepared,
to hold you in my arms and show you just how much I cared.
And when the day finally came, my heart was filled with joy,
to see that you were made for me, my perfect little boy.
Now as the years are passing, you surprise me everyday,
by showing me that I can love you in so many different ways.


A couple of days old

Now such a big boy

Torrey Pines Glider Port

On Saturday after a birthday party we decided to do something different and headed down to the Torrey Pines Glider Port to watch the hang gliders. Tyler thought the human airplanes were pretty cool. Tanner was very interested in the rocks and dirt. We enjoyed ourselves the the location is right on the cliff with great views so it was nice to just hang out and enjoy the beauty of God's creation!
