I also wanted to include this picture in today's blog. We went to our friends' daughter's birthday party this weekend and had a lot of fun. She got a Castle slide that I think Dallin enjoyed more than she did... haha. I happened to take this picture of Dallin real fast before the prayer, and when I looked at it later, I couldn't believe how big he looked! He looks like a little man here! I really made me realize how fast time goes. I'm so grateful for cameras and video so that we can remember little moments like these.

Capturing Little Moments
Today's blog is called, "Capturing Little Moments". I wanted to show a few moments over the last few days that have made me really smile. There are so many little things that happen in everyday life that so many people don't get to see besides for you... So, I thought I'd share a few my my "smiles" with you! :)
We have to have the best neighbors (and landlords) ever. Norman and Barbara are in their 70's, and have taken it on themselves to become adopted grandparents to Dallin. Norman is one of those homegrown, hardcore cowboys, that loves his ranch, trucks, and cowboy hats. And especially his garden. He also loves to have Dallin help him. Yesterday, we went over to visit, and Norman started watering his flower bed. And of course, Dallin knew that it was his time to help. He decided to take over for Norman and show him he could do it himself! I think he ended up watering the cement more than the flowers... We also have been trying to teach him how to smell the flowers. He knows that you go up to them and put your nose to them. But yesterday, every time we tried to show him to smell, he would blow OUT the air from his mouth instead... haha...
When my brother, Scott, came a few days ago, we decided to turn this box into a fun project. I think Scott and I had as much fun making it as Dallin did playing in it. It was complete with window planter and Styrofoam flowers, flag, and curtains! :) We also had a sample of carpet, so we put it in the bottom for the floor. We had a good time. Dallin LOVED it. He spent almost an hour going in and out of the door and peek-a-booing to us through the window. We haven't had the heart to throw it out yet, so it's downstairs by the dryer, and Dallin stays occupied while I do laundry. It's perfect.
