September Birthdays - Maximus

Max had a bit more exciting of a birthday. He had a Paw Patrol Party and nickjr.com had everything you could possibly need for a great, themed birthday party!
 I almost completely forgot about the poster I've been making for Max's birthday every year and had to go out to three different stores at 11pm the night before to find white poster board!
 I left him one balloon not blown up because I thought he'd get a kick out of doing it himself. Success!
 Grandpa and Abuela got Max a bike and helmet! He still has trouble steering, but he's getting really good at using the peddles by himself.
We went to a new park that we hadn't explored before.
So many awesome printables to make the party more fun!
Max's cupcakes, though he ended up eating three...He also insisted on the train candles.

Cousins! Ethan, Hannah, and Carter. Max loves them so so much!
I don't know why, but he went through a phase of removing his shoes at the park, which couldn't have felt good because of the bark they use to cover the ground!
He learned to swing like this from watching other kids.
It's exhausting turning 3!
Max is such a kind-hearted and loving little boy. He gives hugs, kisses, and cuddles freely. He loves hanging out with other kids, and absolutely adores all of his grandparents. He does have a tendency to push kids, but I know he doesn't do it to be mean, he just gets excited when he's around other kids and I think he just doesn't know how to express that excitement. We're working on it. Lately he's been interesting in babies and always points out when a baby's crying. He's obsessed with Paw Patrol and trains, the latter of which I don't think will ever go away. He's a momma's boy, but he very much loves his daddy too. Bryan and I love this little boy more than he could ever know!

September Birthdays - Bryan

Bryan had a simple birthday this year.
 Bryan's parents took us to Texas Roadhouse and the waiters brought out this saddle for Bryan to sit on while they sang Happy Birthday to him. It was pretty hilarious!
 Max took many selfies.
 Bryan's mom made him his favorite chocolate cake with chocolate frosting.
Bryan has been working part-time so he can study for the Bar which would have been in February, but will now be in July. However, he will be applying to the FBI in March so we're hoping and praying that works out and he gets in! I know he would be a great lawyer, a better FBI agent, and the best author (which is the one I'm hoping turns out to be the winner in Bryan's journey toward becoming a career man!) I know he can do anything and whatever it is he ends up doing, he will be great :)

We Moved...

...back in August! I want to try and finish up posts that happened this year before the year is up, so there are hopefully lots coming. We moved from Spokane, WA to Orem, UT. I think it was literally the day after Bryan took the bar. My parents were still visiting us and helped us move. We also had sooo much help from the missionaries and some wonderful people from the ward. I do miss that ward!

We did so many activities in the first month we were here: we went to Lagoon Amusement Park, Seven Peaks Water Park, Museum of Natural Curiosity, Bryan went to a BYU football game, visited the new Ogden Temple, saw Herman's Hermits with Peter Noone in concert,...So many things! And just about all of them, we were able to do for free :) Things slowed down significantly after that when Bryan had to buckle down and start looking for a job. We've been having fun here though.
 Max "shopping" in Grandma and PopPop's pantry.
 Ogden Temple. Max basically whined and kept saying "go bye-bye" throughout the whole thing and made me carry him the entire time.
 Museum of Natural Curiosity. This is a recently opened children's museum at Thanksgiving Point that is huge and really awesome!
 Grandma got a pool for Max and he had such a blast playing in it a couple times!
 Pushing daddy under the water.
 For some reason, Max picked this Jake and the Neverland Pirates costume out for Halloween, though he's maybe seen the show only a couple times. He was very adamant about it though. We ended up returning this one because it already fit him pretty well and knew he would grow in the next couple months. Costco didn't have any bigger sizes so Grandma and PopPop got a much nicer one from the Disney store.
 Herman's Hermits! The show was so good! Bryan and I were probably the youngest couple there, but we knew every song and had such a good time!
Peter Noone! He is the original lead singer of the group. Bryan caught that shirt that I am wearing. Peter Noone through it out to the audience and it bounced right into Bryan's lap! I wasn't going to ask Peter Noone to sign it for me so that I could wear it again, plus we had something else for him to sign, but he totally signed it anyway. It was awesome!
