We have a home daycare in our neighborhood and this morning, on my way to work, a little kiddo got away from his mom and started to walk out in the road. So of course I slammed on my brakes, but I must have been nervous because I tightened the grip on my steering wheel. When I did that, I accidentally honked my horn. Well, you should have seen the look on that poor mother's face. She thought I was ticked off that her kid was in the road and all I was trying to do was make sure I didn't hit her kid. But the best part about this story is that when the mom finally took her kid's hand and drug him across the road, he waved at me the whole way. Kids are awsome! I can't wait to have one of my own...and I will try not to be mad at people who honk at me, because it might just be an accident.

Baby Clay

Over Spring Break, I went to Utah to visit my nephew Clay! He is so cute!!! Don't you agree?

April brings more snow showers

Well, it snowed again. This morning there was snow and this afternoon I saw a Monarch Butterfly. I don't think there is another place on Earth that has weather as wacky as we have here in Wyoming.

This morning we got up and went to a Baby Gear Swap. Kara found a bumbo chair with a tray for only $15 instead of $50!! She is getting good at bargain shopping for baby stuff.

This morning I also completed my first knitting project that incorporated two colors of yarn and a pattern. It is for Kara, I like it so much though that I went and bought more yarn so I can make one for myself.

Here is model Kara wearing her new hat! It only took me two weeks to make this (that's super fast for me).

April brings Snow Showers

It is April 10th and there is a lot of snow out there and all the roads into and out of Laramie are closed! There is no reason to shovel the walk because by the time our neighbors are done it is time for them to start over again. I'll take some pictures later today...

It's April for crying out loud!!! Actually, it's peaceful for me, but it is driving Kara crazy!!

Today we went painting

Today we went to our friend Krista's house and helped her paint the nursery for Anthony Craig Manton who is due in early July. She traced the logos for the Colorado Avalanche on the wall and then we painted them with the official team color paint bought at Home Depot. It took us 4 hours and there are still touch-ups that need to be completed!

It was fun, and now we have practice for painting the nursery here at home. We still need the paint, but we have an idea in mind. Stay tuned to see what happens.
