Noah is at a PEC meeting (for church) Landon is taking his nap and I just finished up my personal reading for today and still have about 20 minutes before I need to get Landon up and ready for church so I figured I would update the blog.
( Noah walking out into the water, he did not like the mud at the bottom though, surprise surprise, a guy who would not finger paint as a child because he did not like the feeling of it, did not like the muddy lake bottom. ) :o)

We went to Lake Mead on friday, the man made Lake here right outside of Vegas that was created when Hoover Dam was built. It is very nice and beautiful, the wind was really blowing so we did not "enjoy" that part, but it was great being in the water and Landon really loved it, he played down by the beach and splashed in the water, he giggled when the waves came up and splashed him he love to play in the sand too, but the wind got so bad that it hurt his little face when it hit him and the sand was so hot that he wanted to sit in my lap and play with it the whole time. We had a blast though. I put sun screen on everyone and was so busy doing the mom thing ( we had another little girl with us that I watch named Rhey) that I forgot to put sunscreen on me, needless to say my white girl back got burned, the rest of me did fine, and my poor white legs that never get sun got some and thankfully did not get burned, just had some nice color the next day.

Landon got his birthday present in the mail from our friends Amy, David and Blake Boston. He loves it, when I told him who it was from he looked in the box and said "ammmeee?" I said "yeah its from Amy and David and your buddy Blake" (he is 6 weeks older then Landon) and he looked at me then in the box and back at me and said "Fang ooohhhsss ammmeee" (thank you amy) it was so precious, I cant believe he is learning so fast. I love when he makes a basket because the music starts to play and he will dance when the to the music. He has figured out though that if he sticks his hand in there with or without the ball that the music will still play, so he just does that now. When he makes a basket by throwing the ball he will throw his hands up in the air when they shout hurray for him. Its precious to watch.
Landon has found his baby binkey basket and now he will walk around with them either in his mouth or with the regular one in his mouth and one in each hand. Its so funny, he will crawl all over collecting them all and carry as many as he can, then he will come and share them with us, but he wants them right back. Such a silly boy.

(thought it was cute, still loves to crawl around naked.... what a goofy kid)

Landon and his friend Ila, she is a day younger then Landon and her daddy worked with Noah. They are LDS too and will be moving on base in August, they will be moving onto the street right behind us and will be in our ward, we are very excited... ( I feel horrible, Ila is all dressed and Landon still has on PJS, in my defense though he just got up and had regular clothes put on him right after I took these pictures.) I just thought they are so cute playing together. Landon crawls and walks much faster then Ila, so as soon as she gets to where he is, he usually looks at her and grabs her hand then goes off to play with something else, she is not as quick so by the time she gets there he is ready to move on again. :O) So silly!

Landons car he got for Easter!! He loves to play in it and steer it all over. He is finally figuring out that he can walk and it will move with him. He shut the door on himself the other day, and leaned over the side till his hands hit the ground and he was bent in half then he walked his hands forward along the ground and shimmed himself out and back to the floor, Noah and I were both amazed that he knew how to do that and did not hurt himself.

He also took a step down out the front door yesterday, Noah went outside and Landon was following, I thought he was going to do a face plant and Noah and I both went running to catch him, well he grabbed on to the door frame and just stepped on down and then went on about his business.... getting to big to fast. I dont know what we are going to do with him :O) he keeps us busy thats for sure, my mom says its pay back for all the crazy things I did as a baby.

Well its time to get Landon up but there is so much more I want to tell you about Noahs "old man softball games" (as he so lovingly calls them) that he had this weekend. It was the "playoffs" so as soon as I can I will post that info. :O)
