Later that day we went with Shaun and Alyssa to the metropolis of Dayton, Idaho! Our friends Clark and Michelle live there and we went to shoot skeet in a canyon by their house. It was beautiful. I had a fun time watching the boys be boys and I even shot a few times myself. I did pretty good if you ask me!
The next weekend was even better. We got to see two of our best friends be sealed for time and all eternity! What an awesome experience. We are so happy for you two and love you so much!
The next day I did something that is nearly impossible to do......I surprised Brock! I know that sounds silly, but he is very hard to surprise. I threw him a surprise party (a few days early) with our families. We all got to go to dinner together and celebrate Brock's birthday. I am quite proud to say that I actually Surprised him! :) After the party we went swimming with my family. Boston loved it!
On Brock's Birthday we had some delicious Chocolate Roll with some good friends. Brock got a RC Helicopter. He couldn't hardly wait for it to charge.
On another note, Boston is getting so big! He is now crawling like a mad-man. He goes anywhere he wants and at 90 mph. He recently cut 3 teeth and is working on a 4th. That makes a total of 6! He claps, waves, and holds his hand up so you can give him 5! He loves to eat anything you give him. He ate spaghetti for the first time the other night and LOVED it. He also likes to be a "nakey" boy. He has started to associate Brock and I with different things. Mom feeds him and Dad means it's bathtime! He loves to get in the bath with Dad and Mr. Rubber Ducky! What a boy! We love him and can't imagine life without him!

Happy Mother's day! This morning I woke up to my awesome husband holding my sweet little boy. They were both smiling at me and Boston was holding a card that said "mommy" on the front. (What a way to wake up right?) Brock told me that Boston had woken him up early and asked him to write a card for me since he obviously couldn't write it himself. I admit I might have cried just a little bit. I love my boys! I am so grateful to have them and thanks for making this an awesome Mother's day! (thanks Brock for writing the card "for Boston")
Being a mom is an overwhelming and awesome responsibility. Those sweet little people depend on you so much and it is up to you to take care of their needs. I am so humbled to have the chance to be Boston's mom. I am so grateful that my Father in Heaven has trusted me enough to send him to me. I love him so much and I hope that I am a good mom to him.
I'm am very lucky to have so many examples of what a great mom is in my life. I have friends, aunts, cousins, mothers-in-law, grandmas, and most of all my mom! My mom is an amazing woman. She is so giving and always puts her family above herself. There has never been a time when she is too busy to help me or listen to me. If you know me, you know that my mom is my best friend. I can't go a day without talking to my mom. Whether it's just a quick hi or to ask advice I have to talk to her. I have learned everything I know about being a good mom from her. Even now that I'm married and have a house of my own there is nothing like going home and spending time with my mom. My mom and I make a great team! We can do anything when we do it together. Even tasks that I hate (like laundry) are fun when I get to do it with her.
Mom, I know that I will be a good mom if I just do the things I've learned from you! I love you so much and thanks for always being there for me. You are my best friend! I love you Mom!

So I know I haven't been very good at this (obviously). I'm going to try to get better! So an update for the past 7 months. On September 22, 2010 Boston Brock Boulter came into this world. It was a wonderful day and it's been nothing but awesome ever since. Boston is a great baby. He sleeps through the night, he eats well, and he is always happy! How did I get so blessed?
