Oh Spring and Popcorn!

We have been having such a good time lately with the Cleveland's amazing Spring weather!  I keep meaning to post certain things, and then I remember that I don't even have time to brush through my hair or unload the dishwasher!! We also celebrated Tim finishing his first year of Medical School!!!!!  I am so proud of him, he worked soooo hard!!  Good job dude, you rock!  One down, three to go :)  Here's what we've been up to lately:
We got a new I-bert bike seat and use it probably 5 times a week!  Max LOVES it,
and calls it "Bye-bye."  
Feeding the ducks at the duck pond.
So everybody has there favorite things to do.  Max's top 2 are, #1 Popcorn, and #2
Listening to the BYU Football fight song.  Tim is responsible for #1, and I guess I should
take the blame for #2...!
Playing at parkdays with my friends!
Like Father, like son...need I say more?
Max hardly ever looks into the camera and smiles...oh well, he is still stinking cute :)
I am shocked he has no bruise on his forehead for this picture...he sure does now!
Swimming with Pepper, Story, and Elliot!  Max actually was in the pool for about 2 seconds
to take this picture, and then freaked out from all the splashing.  My goal this summer is to
make this Max Obsession #3!
Me and Kailee's primary class pool party!  We team taught the 4 year-olds in our
super small primary and loved it!  These kids rocked :)  You can see Max being a swimming whimp
in the very back...sweet little buddy!
I mentioned we go on bike rides all the time, and now, thanks to my awesome  husband
surprising me with this bike rack for Mother's Day, we can bike anywhere we want!!  Seriously,
I don't know how I lived before we started going on bike rides.  It is easy, free, convenient, and SO fun! 
Pepper, Elliot, and Max!  We had a party for our awesome first year  med school hubby's ! Good job boys!
Ladies and Gentlemen, introducing the future Doctors of America...haha!
(Tim and Taylor using Taylor's tire swing in back yard...all the guys took a turn!)
Why wouldn't you trust these men with your life?  
Love this picture :)
My first popsicle experience... 
Not quite sure what to think about the freezing sugar to my teeth...
This picture could go on a popcicle box...oh Max, we sure love you buddy!

3 Years of Happy Times!

Timmy and I celebrated our 3-year anniversary last Saturday, April 28th!!  Thanks to our amazing, and I mean AMAZING friends the Bullards who watched Max ALL day (and even letting him sleep over the night before so Tim and I could leave early enough to make it to our Temple session...) with their busy schedule, we were able to enjoy a day-date in Columbus.  We had soooo much fun, and loved spending so much time together.
We woke up bright and early on Saturday and headed to our first stop...The Columbus Temple.  In order to make it on time, we need about 3 hours to get there.  Tim studied up a storm on the way there while I drove, trying to stay awake listening to a book.  We barely made it...!
After a wonderful temple session, we booked it over to a movie theater that I found about 2 miles from the Temple to see the long- awaited-viewing of The Hunger Games.  We were not disappointed with this book turned into a movie!!! After way too much dollar store candy and movie theater popcorn, we headed back to Cleveland.
Before arriving home though, we stopped and stuffed our faces at The Olive Garden (thanks mom and dad!!!).  We had such a good time there, and our waiter probably thought we were in high school with all the laughing going on at our table.  Tim tried soooo hard to get me to eat the fried Calamari (sp? aka squid), but I wouldn't budge.  Never in a million years.
Stop number 2 on the way back to the Cleve was the Lodi Outlet Malls.  It was a little nippy outside, so we didn't stay too long, but loved how delightful the place was.  The outlets have a cute train that gives rides around all the stores, and we immediately knew a certain little boy would flip out if he could get a choo-choo-train ride :)  That made me miss Max even more (even though we had only been gone from him less than 20 hours...I had to promise Tim to stop worrying about him being any trouble for our friends...)
It ended up being a perfect day, despite the fact that we knew heart-attacks were in store for what our diets consisted of that day...  We are still alive right now, phew!
I love Tim so much, and can't believe it has been 3 years since we got hitched.  He makes me be better everyday, and is SO patient with my short-comings, hormones, falling asleep in every movie or tv show we watch, days I don't make it to the shower, mac and cheese with hot dog dinners for the 3rd-night-in-a-row-weeks, complaints, worries, fears, crying sessions, etc...  He makes me so happy and I can't imagine where I'd be if I wasn't lucky enough to have met him. I love you Tim!
Me and my handsome husband outside the movie theater... No, that isn't our car.  I wish.
Give it up for 3 years baby!!  Whoot, whoot!
