Quit Spitting on Me Zues!

David and I were having a random conversation the other day about some really strange fringe religions out there (he brought up Scientology as an example). I told him that these modern fringe religions weren't any more strange than Greek Mythology, where they created gods for everything. He said, "Ya, like rain is really supposed to be Zues crying!?" Not exactly what I meant, but alright.

So later that same day we were walking outside and it started to rain lightly. David calls it "spitting". I look up at the sky and point my finger in disgust as I yell out, "Quit spitting on me Zues!"

Cake Face

Anders turned one-year-old yesterday!!! He was an angel the entire day! Lots of giggles, lots of food, but most of all we had lots of fun! We started the day by having brunch at IHOP (we wanted to go to Kneader's but we all slept in so we didn't make it in time). Anders got to have pancakes and apple juice for the first time. He preferred the pancakes without syrup, believe it or not!

Then we drove up to Salt Lake City to go to the Hogle Zoo. We had no idea that EVERYONE and their mom would be at the zoo. It was perfect for Anders though because he loves to watch people, probably more than he liked seeing the animals.

He had a chance to play in the sand at the kid's dig site. He only succeeded in eating the sand twice.

He also was fascinated by some teenagers that were nearby eating their pizza. He was basically drooling as he slowly made his way over to them to beg for some of their pizza, this was while we were spooning him some great tasting mixed veggies with whole wheat...what? We are feeding him the good stuff.

Don't worry. Later we went to the Cheesecake Factory and he got to pig out on pasta and marinara sauce, a lot of bread, cheese puffs. We held off letting him eat his chocolate cake until we got home so the rest of his food had some time to digest. It is a good thing we did too, because he pigged out on his cake!

When we got home he played with his new piano. We walked to the store to get him some balloons. What is a first birthday without them? It was the perfect birthday for our cheerful, social one-year-old. Who also happens to be the cutest stinking one-year-old in the whole entire world!!!

Spaghetti Face

Anders had spaghetti for the very first time on Thursday night when we went to the Macaroni Grill. Needless to say, he LOVED it!!!!

Farewell Y Mountain

So David and I are now both officially college graduates from BYU. I have my BA in English and he finally has his BS in Mechanical Engineering. Here are some precious shots from his big day. Mine are not included because I graduated in December.

Anders is attentively watching the ceremony. This is one of my favorite pictures of Anders to date. (Shout out to Uncle Sam for catching it)

David is shaking hands with all those important people you only meet momentarily on the day you graduate. They are legit.

My cute graduate looking over to where I was standing with Anders. He is obviously pleased with his accomplishments. I had to run in order to catch him walking on the stage. I was waiting behind the stage because I wanted David to do a real smile for his picture right before getting his name called, and knew the only way he would was if I was there to help him. They rushed him through so fast that he ended up making a super goofy face for his professional shot. LAME!

Blue and White Family. Anders may be a cougar some day. Perhaps some more brainwashing will ensure it?

LOVE LOVE LOVE both their expressions in this photo. They are two of a kind.
