The latest

Two Saturdays ago, I was able to do Pat's Run with my dad and my friend Krystal. It was fun but WAY too crowded. There were thousands of people there, which is good, but made it hard to run. This pic is from last year. I forgot to take a picture this year!
Griffin loves to feed himself. He loves to sit in his highchair, eat with his fingers and drink from his sippy cup.
Then, when he's done he starts throwing the food all over the floor. So fun!
Lately, he's been putting my shoes on and clomping around the kitchen. Don't you love the natural leg pop!
We met Jesse, Katie and their kids at San Tan so the kids could play on the splash platform. Griffin didn't really like the water splashing him, so he decided to run into the nearby stores instead. It was fun but kind of hot. We ended the afternoon with cones from Dairy Queen. Yum! Katie and Jesse wouldn't let me post their pictures. Bums!
This kid is starting to climb. He loves to climb on the diaper box and look at himself in the mirror. I'm not sure I'm ready for the climbing stage!

Natural Peanut Butter - It might change your life!

About a year ago, I did a post about my favorite peanut butter - Adam's Natural Peanut Butter. Adam's is not sold here, so I have my Utah relatives bring me jars of it when they come down to visit. (Thanks Jade, Dusty and Annette) This, however, cannot go on forever. So a couple of months ago, I decided to try Sprouts brand of natural peanut butter and I love it! I might like it even more than Adam's! A big reason why I love it so much is because it is simply made of peanuts and ONLY peanuts. No added salt. (Adam's makes a no-salt peanut butter but you have to order it online). Therefore, I have converted to Sprouts brand and I highly recommend it!! It's a great price and a great taste. Seriously, make the switch to natural peanut butter and you'll never go back. The other stuff doesn't even taste like peanut butter once you've tasted the real deal. It will change your life. Plus, it's better for you! You can't argue with that.

On Wednesday, my mom, sisters, and I got together with Bonnie (a contributor to Becoming Betty blog) and Megan for a lunch date. It was so much fun! We ate at Cracker's, one of our favorite spots. We had a great time talking, laughing and scarfing down the delicious Blackberry Bread Pudding! We love Bonnie and Megan and hope to make this lunch thing a tradition.

Ok, so it wasn't all girls. Cute, little Griffy came along too! He loves his Aunt Nat.

I had to stick in an extra pic of Griffin. So in love with this kid!!

The Zoo

On Friday, Griffin and I went to the zoo with Jessie and her 3 girls and Katie and her 2 kids. It was Griffin's first time. We had fun looking at the animals, eating lunch, riding the carousel and hanging out with friends and cousins. Thanks, girls, for a fun day at the zoo!
