Bath Surprise

Monday, March 24th, 2008 | All Posts | 3 Comments

Cole takes a bath every night right before he goes to bed. This really helps him sleep better, and when he misses one due to us getting home a little too late, it shows during the night. Usually the routine starts with me getting my pajamas on so I can roll up my pants and put my feet in the tub with Cole. This makes it easier for me to watch him in the tub since he likes to stand up and play all over the tub.

Tonight, Cole and I got a little surprise. We got into the tub and all the sudden Brian runs up in his bathing suit and got in the tub with Cole. It was no surprise that Cole was very excited.

Brian is Cole’s favorite person in the world. It is cute but also a little hard since Brian works from home and Cole always wants him to come play with us.

Well, Brian’s surprise was nice because it gave me a little extra time to get a few other things done.

Happy Easter!!

Hopefully everyone has had a happy Easter. We have had quite an eventful weekend. Yesterday we went to my Grandma and Grandpa Tobler’s for our annual Saturday Easter celebration. It was fun as usual. Good food with good company. Unfortunately we missed the Easter egg hunt because Cole was in need of his nap. Here is a picture of him in my grandparents backyard…


Today we started our Easter off at the Harris’ home where Rachel (Easter Bunny) hid all the Easter eggs and gifts throughout her backyard. She did a great job. Here are a few pictures.

Cole found his first egg and was happy enough with it. I guess that is what happens on their first Easter egg hunt.

The Easter Bunny. Rachel really went above and beyond.

Grandma Linda with her pretty purple egg. She helped the kids find their gifts that she forgot to look for hers.

Kyle came in town and helped Maddie find all her gifts and got a few fun ones of his own.

Grandpa Stan helping Cayden find eggs galore. Cayden really scored with candy.

Weston also came in town and shared some Easter fun with us all. Isn’t he just adorable.

Sorry this picture is a little blurry. I just snapped one really quick. This is Brian and Josh cooking Easter breakfast for everyone.

After church, we spent time at my parent’s house. Since my Mom has been down from her back surgery, I made Easter dinner. Everyone has been bringing her the mashed potatoes and meat meals, so she requested chicken enchiladas, rice and black beans. Unfortunately I didn’t get any pictures there since I was cooking the whole time.

It has been a busy two days, but so fun.

New Shoes

It has been a real struggle finding shoes to fit Cole’s feet. As cute as they are, his feet are very pudgy all around. I have tried so many different shoes on him and none fit. I found these cute shoes at Ross the other day. I love little kid shoes.

He looks like such a big boy in this shirt and his shoes.

I just thought this one was cute.

San Francisco

Any of you who know Brian, know that he served his mission in San Francisco. Since his mission which ended almost 7 years ago; he has been back 48 times. Wow, I know.

Well this last weekend made the 48th time. My mom is having back surgery soon and my dad has never been to San Francisco, so we went with them. We had a blast. Cole was so good, like he normally is. The weather turned out beautiful. We also went to go to Jocelyn’s reception. She looked beautiful in her dress.

Here are a few pictures from the trip:

This was on the shuttle away from the airport.
