Levi Archie

Levi Archie Furr was born on Wednesday, April 18th to Kelly and Ryan (Larry's brother). His middle name was given in memory of Larry and Ryan's paternal grandfather.
Levi weighed 8 lbs. 13 oz. and was 21½" long, which means Christian has held onto his title of biggest Furr grand baby (but only by an ounce).

Here's Levi with his big sister Abby. Although we currently have just one niece and one nephew on the Furr side of the family, we think these two more than make up for it in cuteness alone.

Congratulations to Ryan, Kelly and Abby! We can't wait to see you all again.

Christian Turns Two!

For Christian's 2nd birthday, we had planned a pirate water party. Sadly, the weather was so cold and very windy, so we were not able to have the water activities. The pirate party still turned out to be tons of fun and we were so thankful for all those who braved the wind to come celebrate with us.

Christian was so excited for his birthday and was so happy to have so many family and friends come and play.
 Here's Ava and Sophie in their matching swimsuits.
 And here are some more of our fun party guests.

Christian loved when we sang "Happy Birthday" to him and was clapping along with the song.
Even though there was no water, Christian still had fun playing in his new pirate ship swimming pool.
We love our little pirate!!

Getting Christian's Hair Cut

Christian loves to get his hair cut at Cookie Cutters. In the past, Larry has tried cutting his hair at home. Bad idea. Christian would not stop moving. Larry then tried taking Christian to the place where he gets his hair cut. Christian screamed the whole time. Then I started taking him to Cookie Cutters. He loves it and gets excited to go and get his hair cut! Christian has thick hair that seems to grow so fast and it has been great to have a place that he loves to go. He loves sitting in the cars and sits so still. It is amazing. Here are some pictures from last summer of Christian getting his hair cut.

A Day at the Zoo

Last summer, we went for a day at Hogle Zoo. Ava and Christian were very excited to be able to go to the zoo with a lot of their cousins. Ava ate her cereal so fast because she was so excited to get to the zoo.

Christian's favorite part of the zoo is the train. He loves riding on the train.
And, he loves watching the train go by.
In the past we have skipped the playground part of the zoo, but this time, we spent quite a bit of time at the playground. Ava loved it.

We also did see some real animals—I just don't have any pictures. Ava's favorite was the bird show and the elephants. Christian's favorite was the elephants and the giraffes.

Thanksgiving Point Fun

One of our favorite things about living in Lehi, is living right by Thanksgiving Point. With all of the fun activities, we are usually there at least once a week. In the winter time, we spend a lot of time at the Dinosaur museum and in the Spring and Summer, we are at the Dinosaur museum, the children's garden, the big gardens, farm country and the ice cream parlor. One of our favorite activities is Pirate Day at the museum. We were very excited this year to have Zach and Zoe with us.

During Pirate Day, the museum has lots of fun activities including a treasure hunt, face painting, and make your own pirate hat and pirate telescope. Here's Christian waiting patiently for Ava to get her face painted.

And the final result! (Ava, of course, wanted a mermaid).

When it is warm, Ava and Christian love playing in the water at the children's garden. They were especially excited this year to go with Zach and Zoe many times.

Ava is such a good sister and always takes care of Christian. It has been fun this past year to watch them really start playing together.
If you are ever in Lehi, give us a call, we would love to go to Thanksgiving Point with you!
