Vroom-Vroom Birthday

Chandler had a birthday!!! He turned 3 on September 24th. I can't believe it's been three years since I birthed this child! Wynn and I were watching home videos of when Chandler was born and shortly after, and it brought tears to our eyes (yes, Wynn's too!) in realizing how much we love him, and am so grateful to have him as our son. Even though I have struggled at times, and definitely still have weaknesses in being a strict mommy, I am so grateful to be Chandler's mom and to have him as my constant buddy.

This boy is truly obsessed with race cars!!! and trucks, and motorcycles, and garbage trucks..pretty much ANYTHING that has wheels! We thought it would be fun to take him to Rocky Mountain Raceways and watch fast cars race! IT WAS A HIT!!! Chandler was a complete spazz almost the entire time. The evening we went, it was just drag racing, so he didn't get the full effect of cars racing around in a big circle, but he still loved it! One of Wynn's co workers from work happened to be racing his car that night, so we went and saw him afterwards and got a few pictures with Chandler in his fast red car.

We then had a family party eating Chandler's "race car cake" and enjoyed opening just a few more race cars!! Happy Birthday Chan-man!!

Drum Roll Please...

TADA!!! To rewind a few posts back, remember all the dirt we were surrounded with? well, it's gone!!!! and it will NEVER be missed!! We still have some landscaping to do around the house, but that will come in the future. I can't tell you enough how happy it makes us to drive up to a house that has a fence and grass!! It truly does make our house look so much better! Our next project is now washing all the dirt off of our windows! We have been patiently waiting for the grass buds to grow, and now we can finally go out and walk on our lawn. Wynn has been fertilizing it religiously, and with his latest mowing, I can say that our yard looks pretty darn good!!

Park City

Wow. I am so overdue for a new post. We have been enjoying our last few days of summer and have been playing lots! Over Labor Day weekend, my sister and her family came for a visit and it was so so fun to have them at our house. We loved every minute spent with them! We then headed to Park City this weekend for a little getaway with our good friends. We took Chandler on the Alpine Slide for the first time and loved it. He got to go twice! Once with me and one time with Wynn. We enjoyed staying at a nice resort with fun pools and had a great time.

One of the first things Chandler did when we got to our room was get stuck in the chair. BIG HEAD. SMALL BRAIN!! He was stuck for awhile and needed Wynn's help to yank him out.
