We could tell poor little Evan wasn't feeling very well on Wednesday (of course while we had family in town. He always gets sick when we have family in town or when we visit family out of town...). Thursday and Friday morning weren't much better, so we took him in and came home with a diagnosis of croup. So we rented a nebulizer at the home health place and having been doing a few treatments everyday. Of course he hates it. Then after 2 or 3 treatments he decided to hold it himself and not fight us over it! And he even put the tube in his mouth! We usually still have to hold it out in front of him, but he will suck on it for a few minutes every time. And this might sound kinda strange, but I think it's so cute!

We're still doing a few more treatments, but he seems to mostly be back to his normal, happy, energetic self!

A Fun Weekend

This last week Reed had to do some traveling (to fabulous Blanding, Utah) for work. Since he got so many hours in and they normally only work half days on Fridays, he was able to just take the whole day off! It was so fun to have a 3-day weekend together! So on Friday we headed up to Bridal Veil Falls. It was perfect-the temperature was just right, there were only a few other people there, and the water is shallow enough still that we didn't have to worry about Evan being swept down stream. And he loved it-so many rocks to throw with his Dad!

Finding sticks and all sorts of things to carry on the walk up
 Mom's death grip hand hold while crossing the raging Provo River
 So many rocks, so little time!

 My Dad sure is tall!
 Cute, happy boys!
 Dad and Evan checking out the river on the bridge again (apparently Mom was much more paranoid about being so close to the river)
On Saturday we spent time at Orem's Summer Fest. It was a lot of fun, but we didn't take too many pictures. The highlights were seeing Cosmo in the parade and watching the awesome fireworks from our front window while Evan slept!

Getting Warmer

It finally stopped raining here in Utah and is slowly, but surely, starting to warm up. 

Our landlord FINALLY got us a lawnmower
 This is Evan telling me that this dead thing off the tree is "blah"
We've enjoyed some ice cream cones (Evan in his new tiger camp chair)

And Evan has been working hard trying to get his calves ready for shorts season...don't tell Dad...
