5 Years

John and I celebrated our 5 Year Anniversary on May 30th. I just want to take a minute to say how grateful I am to have been married to such a wonderful man for the last 5 years. He is such a great father to our son and a great example to all those around him. I can't believe how fast time flies. John is the greatest thing that has ever happened to me. Without him I know I would not be as happy as I am now. I love him so much and want him to know that I appreciate all the hard work he does to provide for our family and that I am so proud of him for all that he does.

Summer Time is Here!!

Well now that summer has officially arrived in Las Vegas, I should probably take the time to update everyone on how the Turner clan is doing. When I say summer has arrived, I mean that Summer arrived weeks ago on the first day of 100+ temps. We have been above 100 now for almost 2 weeks, give or take a day. We have been doing lots of things. Here is a little of what we have been doing.

We went out to Lake Mead with some friends of ours who have a jet ski. We had so much fun riding that thing. There were not that many people out on the lake so we had a pretty easy time going where ever on the lake that we wanted to go. Of Course Lucas came too, not on the jet ski though.

While were out there I snapped this picture of John and Lucas. Let's just say this is my new favorite picture of my boys. It shows their matching personalities perfectly!

Our friends, Shawn and Nichole have a little boy, Dillon who is 2 weeks younger than Lucas. Although, from this picture you would think that Dillon was older than Lucas. Lucas is this short little guy next to his buddy. We'll see how long Dillon stays taller than Lucas when they get older.

We also hit the races. Every Saturday night out at the race track they do races. Not big Nascar races, but short track races. We watched this little 12 or 13 years olds race in little cars. They are proably not much more powerful than a go cart but they sure could race those things. Who knows, maybe we watched the next Dale Earnhardt race. It was very loud but Lucas had so much fun. He sat there so intently watching the cars rush by. I think it cost 10 bucks a person to get in and then they had $1 hot dogs and sodas. Lots of fun for really cheap.

John and I had our 5 year anniversary. Yep we have been married for 5 years. So for our anniversary we decided to go to Arizona for a Diamondbacks game. We left Lucas with a friend for the weekend and drove down for the game. We had so much fun. That stadium is one of the most amazing places I have ever been. In about the 3rd Inning it cooled down enough outside so they opened the roof. Right there in the middle of the game the roof started to open. Soooo Cool. We will definately be back for more games and we'll take Lucas next time.

Lucas has grown so many teeth these last few weeks. He is up to 2 molars, 4 top front teeth, and 3 bottom front teeth. So we decided that we should start teaching him how to feed himself things that he won't choke on. This is his first time doing so, it was spagetti. He ate all of the noodles, but I don't think a single drop of sauce made it to his stomach. Needless to say, we put him in the bath immediatly following this yummy dinner.
