2 years ago today....

2 years ago today was me and Jake's first date! I know I didn't blog about our one year wedding Anniversary (way more important than our first date) but that's cause I am lazy, so i figured I would blog about our first date.
Jake and I had known each other for a couple months as just friends.... One day we started texting and discussed that we should hang out again since it had been awhile. So we decided to make it a simple/casual date and see how it goes. Well we went to Wendy's for frostys and to a park in Ogden to play Frisbee ha ha so fancy I know! Right before we got back to his truck he stopped me and pulled this line "every second we go without kissing a puppy dies!"
(you have to know Jake to know he was just being funny), so I was thinking what the FU?! I had to kiss him for the puppies right??? :)
After we were done at the park we headed back to his apartment to watch some movie.... I ended up having a really fun time with him on our casual and thought I would keep him around for while and see what happens. Jake and I were talking about our first date this morning and he said who would of thought! Here we are married and we have beautiful baby girl. Its so crazy thinking about the first time I met Jake to now. Things couldn't be better! I love his stinkin guts and feel grateful we end up with each other! I am a lucky girl that has such a wonderful husband!

Here are some pictures from our dating days... I miss my long hair :(

Yet another long waited update

MAN! I am bad at this blogging thing! Well I will try to update whats been going on this past month in our most exciting lives.

On May 3rd. Addison was blessed, Jake was so nervous but he did a great job! We had our family and friends over afterwards and everything turned out just splendid.

The next day Jake, Addi, and I went on our first family trip! Not a far one, just to the lovely St George. My Grandparents are down there and they have all the works! An awesome view of the Kolob canyons right from their back deck! An indoor pool and hot tub! And a quick drive to Zions or St George. Plus its a free place to stay with all the fixings of a hotel... Doesn't get any better than that.
So while we were there we took a hike in Zions, Addi was pretty tired going up those hills. Then we went to the St George Temple! Beautiful! Of course we made a stop at IN N OUT and played at nicely shaded park.

A week later my brother Randy and his wife Cassi came to visit from New Hampshire! It was so fun to see them and have them meet the new babies since they have been gone.
We had a BBQ at my other brothers house and took a long over-due picture of all of us Guthrie kids together again! We have missed them lots! I'm glad they could come back and visit.

Jake and I have been trying to go out on dates. On May 21st Jake took me to see Dane Cook! AH! He was so freaking funny. We had awesome seats, 7th row from the stage. He was practically spitting on us! My wonderful mom and little sister Elizabeth watched Addison for us. It wasn't the first time she has been babysat but it was the longest! It was so hard. I kept watching my phone to make sure she was alright. My mom got her to sleep right at her bedtime! So we brought her home and put her right to bed! That was super nice!

Speaking of bedtime Addi does so good with sleeping through the night! This happened when she was about 2 1/2 months. I love it! She sleeps all night in her crib. I know it was while ago, but I just wanted to brag about her... just a little :)

She also has started laughing!!! I was so excited when I first heard that wonderful sound!
I was able to capture it on video a couple times and if I am able to figure out how to post it from the video camera I will cause it is the greatest noise on earth. I am pretty sure everyone will agree.

Addi went on her first Zoo adventure! Of course she had no idea what was going on, she was more into her shadow than the animals. We met up with my sister Jessica, and her husband Jesse, and their two kids Streator and baby savanna. It was good seeing them and Streator was so fun to watch since he is at that age where he gets excited to see the animals.
That same week we went to a Bees game. I love spending the day with Addi and Jake. Addi was good and loved watching the little kids around us play.
June 5th was my little sister Katie's birthday! She turned 12! Katie happens to be the baby of the family. I remember when she was born and I wanted to bring her to show and tell at school ha ha. I can't believe she is growing up. I remember teaching her to say shake your booty b****. Yikes! I got in a lot of trouble.

On Monday we were able to go Lagoon for employee family days. My little sister Elizabeth works there, so the whole Guthrie clan (well my mom, Katie, Jared, and Elizabeth) went with us to Lagoon and it was a blast. I didn't realize how hard it was to find a spot to feed your baby in private! We went to the back of the park and sat between a fence and bush. LAME!
Other than that it was a good time and I was grateful for the help I got with Addi so I was able to enjoy the rides like everyone else.

Well there you have it! It's been nice having Jake out of school for the summer cause we get to go on all these fun family adventures! He did really great this last semester of school and is working really hard at work! I am so grateful for him and all that he does for our little family, because of him I am able to stay at home with Addi. He is a great husband and an amazing daddy to Addison. I love him and feel so lucky I get to be his wife!
