Fun in the Sun

At the end of June, Joe and I surprised his Dad with a trip out to Colorado to visit them. He had no idea and we just showed up Friday morning. We placed Dallin on their bed and hid in the closet. Judy got him from his office and told him she had something to show him. She had just been out "shopping" so he was expecting some shorts or something, but when he walked in, he saw Dallin. It was so much fun surprising him. We spent 4 days with them and had a blast. Here are some picture of Dallin at the water park in Denver, called "Water World." We had so much fun.
Dallin, Joe and I in the water. Dallin loved the water and was already kicking like a pro.

I think this is one of my favorites. We are both so exhausted and he is so tired, but he is snuggling right up to me which makes the picture just so perfect. The water park was a blast. Joe and I got to go on so many rides together while Judy watched Dallin in a nice shaded cabana. Thank you so much guys! You really gave us a fun weekend.
We also went to the royal gorge. It is a 1,100 foot gorge. We went on a ride over it.....more to come on that. I think I will try to post the video of Joe and I. You will crack up...I almost peed my pants with fear.

And so it goes

Dallin is getting stronger and stronger everyday. I think pretty soon, he will be rolling over. He loves to play in his jumperoo, but still hates tummy time. Here is a picture above of him holding his head up high. He is 4 and 1/2 months today. We love you Dallin~
Dallin and Daddy, about one month ago.

Dallin getting fed. Sometimes he is just too anxious to get fed that we forgo getting some clothes on him, and head straight to the feeding. He is sure eating a lot now, almost 8 ounces a feeding now.

He loves feeding time, some of his best smiles come right after he eats. This picture is from a month ago also.

At about 2 months I did a little photo shoot with him. Joe has this large stuffed elephant that he had when he was a baby. It is rather old, but Dallin loves to sit on it. I got a pretty cute picture of him hanging on to the elephant. He is gonna be my little Tarzan.
On the weight loss note, I am officially 151 lbs. I am on this new eating regimen to loose the rest of my baby weight. We eat 6 small meals a day and load up on the vegetables and we cut out the starchy foods. I feel really great and I am feeling like the weight is just melting off at times. It feels really good to eat right and work out each day.
I went to Zumba a couple of weeks ago and absolutely loved it. I haven't been able to go back because I haven't had the time...(our basement flooded for the third time and we have been busy getting it fixed). But I was really liking it. It is a combination of aerobics and dance, perfect for me. I want to go some more, but need to find some classes closer to provo. I attended one of my friend's classes and it was so fun, she was really good and made it really easy to follow along. Hey, maybe I will become an instructor too:)
