The wading pool

Oh how I hate being pregnant in the summer! Yesterday was around 113 degrees here in Mesa! Hot hot hot! Simon and I spent our day running errands and playing in his little swimming pool in the backyard. Thank heavens for that little pool. He has a little slide that he slides down into the water. He mostly uses it for his trucks and trains ;o).

We are all getting excited to see Melesa and Brett soon. They just got to Utah to visit Brett's family and soon they will be here in AZ. I can't wait to see how much little Kimble has grown and I have a feeling that Simon and Jackson will be best buddies. Simon loves his older cousins. He gets so excited to see Keaton and Everett when they are in town! Not much else is going on with us this week. Jesse is thrilled to be getting his first Motorcycle on Friday and Jeremiah is working hard as always. I am just counting down the weeks until we get our new little boy. It is hard work chasing around a 2 year old and trying to keep up with life all while being pregnant.

Simon's Second Birthday

Yesterday was a big day! Simon's 2nd birthday. We started out the day by getting his new tricycle set up in the living room so he could see it when he woke up. The funny thing is that he didn't see it at first. I had to show him his birthday suprise. He loved it!! He has been riding it around the house and we even took it to the park today. It is really nice because he can ride on it while I push and steer.

After breakfast we spent the rest of the morning at the zoo. He got to see the monkeys and pet the goats and sheep. Amd he played at the spash pad. He had a blast. He kept telling me he wanted to go see the "babooooon". He loved the monkeys so much we got him one at the gift shop and he has been sleeping with it since.

Last night we had a birthday party and Marie, Aimee, Jesse, Karissa, Cabrena, Veronica, Everett and Keaton came. Simon loved the cake, he tore his piece apart to eat the pudding in the middle. mmmmm.

Happy Birthday Simon!

Simon's Cake

Here is Simon's birthday cake!! It was my first real cake decorating attempt. It was so fun to do, like playing with play dough. Simon liked it too. He loved the tractors. I'll post some more pics of his birthday tomorrow.

might as well try. . .

So, I've been hearing about this blogging thing and feel like I'm the last one on the planet to try it out. Here goes nothing! We have lots going on in the Hall household right now. Simon is turning 2 years old tomorrow! woo hoo! and we are expecting a new little boy in September. Jeremiah is working at Farnsworth Wholesale, a plumbing supply company. He and Jesse are working together for the summer. Jeremiah will sure be sad to see Jesse go off to college this Fall.
I'm excited to see if I can keep up with blogging and keeping in touch with the family and friends. I'll post pictures of Simon's birthday as soon as I get them. I'm making his b-day cake tonight. It is my first real attempt at cake decorating. I got a great recipe for homemade fondant frosting from Melesa and she is amazing at cake decorating. Hopefully mine will turn out ok. Thanks Melesa.
