We have been having so much fun enjoying the weather and our new life up here in Tooele, UT! I don't have much to say, just pictures to share:

A few weekends ago we checked out our local aquatic center. Sam and Owen in the water:
We also went to the Raspberry Patch and picked some delicious raspberries! We spent the rest of the weekend making muffins, scones, ice cream and raspberry crisp! It was all delicious!

Cute Gavin!

Owen loves CARS the movie. He plays with all his cars characters constantly, carries them with him everywhere and even wakes up every day and tells us who we are for the day depending on what color shirt we have on. Today I have on black so I get to be Sheriff.
The boys ready for church!
There was an accordion player for our "Concert In the Park" Friday night. We picked up delicious burgers and shakes from a place called Dairy Delight and sat and watched. Owen loved it!
A few pics from our Discovery Gateway Children's Museum adventure with the Melins:

He's Arrived

Gavin Thatcher Layton was born at 4:31 AM on Tuesday May 3rd, he was 6 lbs 14oz and 18.5" long. I'll spare you all the gory details about his arrival, we just wanted to let you know that he's here and he's healthy. Kristen is in some pain, but she's doing very well. I'll stop typing...enjoy the pictures.

Birthday Boy

Owen turned TWO last week! He is definitely a little boy and not our baby anymore. He is so grown up - says EVERYTHING, knows his ABC's and the sounds all the letters make, can almost count to 20, sings, has entire books memorized, and makes us laugh everyday with something new he has learned or a comment he makes. He loves his cars, trampoline, playing catch, his sesame street "guys", pillow fights, and especially letters. He is a sweet little boy, saying "please", "thank you", "bless you" when we sneeze, "excuse me" when he burps, asks if we're okay when we cough, "how are you today?", "glad to see you" or "how did you sleep?" in the morning, "thanks for breakfast", and "thanks for coming" when someone leaves the house. He surprises us everyday and is just so fun to be with! Here are a few pictures - his actual birth day, one and two!
