sophie's gymnastics class

we just enrolled sophie in a tot and parent gymnastics class. she definetly has the energy for it... so might as well burn it learning something! I took her to the open house for it and she tried out some of the equipment... the rings were her favorite... after a couple mins she figured out that if she lifted her legs she could swing and then swung away! we will keep you posted on her progress!!! (sorry it's so dark... i did it with my phone. i couldn't resist :)

Derek's bday is today and he is turning 27... getting up there. :) I still think he is an amazing man with amazing potential. He is one of the kindest people I know and a fantastic father and husband. I know his parents and parents in law think he is an amazing son. we love him so much for everthing he's done. He built us a house and has spent every spare moment in his life making us happy. He cracks us up with his funny and sometime not so funny jokes. He's smart, kind, funny, strong priesthood holder, and to top it off... very handsome :) thank you babe for everything you do and have done for us. your amazing and we love you very much! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
