Aspen Alegra Gates

Introducing Aspen Alegra Gates. Born June 20th, 2010. She is 7 lbs, 9 oz and 19 inches long. She is so wonderful and I am so grateful that she has joined our little family.
At American Fork Hospital they had a professional
photographer that snapped some of these pics of us.

Memorial Weekend

For Memorial Weekend, we went to Park City with our friends Shane and Brenda and their boys. We ended up staying the weekend at my moms vacation home and had a great time!

My favorite little man

On Saturday morning we went to the Heber Creeper Thomas the Train event. Bryten loves Thomas the Train and was so excited when he saw the train roll in.

Bryten's first tattoo...Thomas the Train of course.

Daddy and Bryten riding the train. Last year, he slept the entire time. This year, loved it!

Bryten loved looking at the other trains as well. They were changing the oil on this one, so Bryten got a lot of noise from this one - the more noise the better in his opinion.

He loved when this one rolled in.

There were people there that made balloon animals. Bryten picked out a balloon sword. He's obviously very excited about it!

Donovan, Chase and Bryten with their balloon swords. These boys are awesome; they kept playing with Bryten the entire weekend even though they are older.

Bryten tuckered out...mid lick.

On Monday we came back home and Brian took out his hockey gear and
Bryten of course wanted to also.

Look at that form....future NHL player?
Daddy and Bryten barbequing. Yum!

We finished off the weekend with a little pool party. Last year he had a baby pool and it is way too small for him now. So we ended up buying him a bigger one this year. Bryten absolutely loved this half of the pool with the pink dolphin. He kept hugging it. So adorable.
Happy Memorial Day!
