I love spring. I've decided I like temple square in the spring with the tulips and blossoms even more (way more, really) than at Christmas with the lights. I think it's so much more appealing. Perfect temperature, smells fantastic, less crowded, let your kid run free on the grass, stop by Rocky Mt Chocolate Factory for a chocolate caramel covered apple, eat it outside near the fountains at City Creek, go buy more chocolate 'cause it was so good you want more and end up spending too much- but it's ok every now and again, eat it outside near the fountains at City Creek, again, wipe off your sticky child, go home and your child goes to bed easily that night 'cause he's tired... ahhhh.

This year I was ambitious with the small space we have in back. I more than doubled the amount of pots we grew last year. From 4 to 9 to be exact. Hopefully everything grows cause if you were to look at Tito's patch of grass we laid for him last year you'd think it would all be dead in a week. This year we have a patio tomato, cherry tomato, basil, oregano, parsley, thyme, rosemary, a small sweet pepper, spinach, lettuce, 2 strawberry, peas, and green beans. The peas, beans, lettuce and spinach are all from seed and I've never done that before. I'm also waiting just a titch longer to plant some cucumber seeds but honestly I don't know where it will go. Sheesh, last year was only a tomato plant and herbs. I want to have some good early spring, late summer pictures so I really hope everything does well. I especially want some produce, lots and lots and lots.

I love spring, it's by far my favorite season. I also love Easter, but I don't know what my favorite holiday is.
I got to go spring skiing a few weeks back with my brothers and dad. Seems I only go once a year now. Johnny was sick otherwise he would've gone too :(. I was pretty worn out by the end of the day seeing how i was around 20 weeks pregnant and out of shape.
Here is a pic of baby boy number 2 at 19 weeks. I'm now 22 weeks.

I had to speak in sacrament today. On our way to church I was telling Johnny I hoped my talk made sense as far as the order of things. His answer reminded me that I married the right man.
"Just don't fart up there and you'll be fine."
He'll always get a laugh out of me.

Seems like we've had more snow this year than recent years. It keeps snowing before it has a chance to melt. The inversion did hang a round for quite a while and it's finally clear so we went out to play in some fresh snow. Had to have hot chocolate afterward. All Harper wanted, really, were the marshmallows :).

Here it goes. We are so excited, come Aug. 2nd, Harper will have a sibling! I can not tell you how much this boy just needs a buddy. His mom is a little bit of a recluse and mostly quiet in large crowds, and don't get me wrong, he can do his own thing, but I think he takes a little more after his Dad in this area. He loves being with people.
I've been feeling bad for my family. I haven't cooked much these past 3 months. My stomach turns when I think about food. Can't even open the fridge with out feeling it. Haven't puked thank goodness. Oh, and ps you know you're pregnant when you cry watching Shark Tank because a stay at home mom scored a deal with a shark for her dipped pretzel business. :/
I do feel I may disappear from the planet after the second comes. I know I'm exaggerating but thats how I feel. Like I said, here it goes.
