One Year Older

I can't believe that I am 25. It seems like just yesterday I graduated from high school. Zach asked me where I thought I would be when I was 25. I think that depends on how old I was when I was thinking about being 25. I always wanted to be a teacher. The subject is what changed over the years. I always pictured myself married and with a different amount of kids. I look back on my life and see where I have made mistakes and where I wish I had chosen differently. I realize that it doesn't matter where I pictured I would be when I am 25. I love the picture that I have right now. I have the most wonderful husband that loves me. I have a wonderful little boy that brings so much joy to my life. I really couldn't wish for anything else.

Tulip Festival

This Monday, Connor and I along with my sister Kristen and her kids and my parents and grandma went to Thanksgiving Point to see the Tulips.

Since my mom is still getting over a broken foot and Grandma gets tired when she walks a lot, we decided to get a gold cart so they would not have to walk so much. It turned out really nice and ended up being great for everyone. No one really had to pull the wagon.
The kids really loved to ride along in the cart too. It was overall a really great day.

Sprinkler Trouble

Last year we put in our sprinkling system right before the snow fell.  Because it was so late in the season, they had turned off out irrigation water and so we had not tried our sprinklers until last week.  We were hoping that everything would have gone well and we wouldn't have to do much work this year.  We were not that lucky.  Here is just one of the problems that we found that Zach has fixed.  It was like having our own mud bath in the backyard. Having a whole yard to take care of is always an adventure.

The Beginning

I finally jumped on the blog wagon.  It seems like most people are already blogging and Zach has one he has updated a couple of times.  I just couldn't figure out how to update it myself, so I guess I will start my own.  We will see where it goes from here.
