The Moment You Have All Been Waiting For!

So, I'm finally updating our blog. I bet many of you are surprised and happy to finally have something new to see(especially the pics of Logan). Sorry for keeping you waiting for so long. Please forgive me for being busy. That's the life of a mom. This week I was canning peaches and dropped a quart on the floor and it shattered, that only delayed this post more. I had to mop three times to get all the stickyness gone. To briefly update you on our family: Grant is liking school, Ashlyn started preschool and likes that. I quite enjoy having Logan to myself when both kids are at school. I'm back to playing basketball a couple days a week(its killing me, I hate getting old). I've had multiple invites for Christmas and whoever bids the highest might win. Here is a marathon post to catch you all up on the last 3 months. It starts at the present time and goes back in time. Enjoy!!!

Happy Birthday Ashlyn, 4 years old. She wanted a Pinkie Pie cake so Dave and I spent 2 hours making her this cake. It turned out well enough.

We had some friends over for cake and ice cream. I think Ashlyn liked the cake.

The first day of school.

Grant is looking really hard for the pencils he brought at meet the teacher night. They weren't there. He was so excited for the first day of kindergarten. He is our big boy. Gotta love that cheesy smile.

Logan with evil eyes, but a cute face!

Grant bowling for the first time. He loved it so much we ended up buying him a bowling set.
Here is Grant playing T-ball. He's running to 1st base.

Pretend these aren't blurry. Is a little challenging to snap a clear shot on roller skates. Please note Grandpa Evans on his skates. We all had a little fun, but it was so darn hot that we were so happy to leave.

This is Ashlyn our star blast-ball player. She could do really well when she put her mind to it.

Here is Logan with his cousin Brooklyn, they are about 3 months apart in age.
At the time this was the future Elder Wilcox. By now he's been out 3 months. Look for him in a couple years playing for BYU. The kids love him!

Baby Logan's Birth (6/15/2010)

At seven pounds 8 ounces, 19.5 inches long, Logan David Evans proves our biggest baby, even though he came three weeks early. His arrival was so unexpected that he almost popped out in the car on the way to the hospital. When Lesli entered the hospital, she was complete and had him within ten minutes. The nurses delivered the baby, inasmuch as the doctor did not have time to get there. One tough woman, Lesli gave birth without anesthesia, despite the fact that she requested an epidural immediately upon arrival. No time for that! The fact that he came early combined with any lack of crying when he first came out scared me quite a bit. However, everything ended up just fine. Both he and mom are doing fine (even though Lesli has to have a root canal today; just one more proof that she is made of nails). We feel blessed to invite him in our home. Now we can refer to him as "he" and "him" instead of "it," or "fetus," or "unborn one." We enjoyed experiencing the surprise of not knowing his gender until birth (even though I peeked during an ultrasound and, therefore, had a pretty good hunch). Anyway, we cannot wait until family can get out to Texas to see us. Too bad we live so far away.

Turner Falls Park Oklahoma 6/2010

We went to the Arbuckle Wilderness about an hour and a half north of us where you can find Oklahoma's Turner Falls Park. We enjoyed hiking to small caves (some with huge daddy long leg-type spiders covering the ceilings), taking in the beautiful Turner Falls, floating the river, playing on the diving board and water slide and exploring the castle. We cannot wait to come back and camp when the temperature is a bit more pleasant.
