Last week most of my family came up to move little Patty-whack into his BYU dorm. I can not believe that my little baby is all grown up and out of my parents house! Last night he brought a cute date over to our house to hang out for a but. I loved it. I never want him to leave. This is how our week of festivities went:
We had to get Patrick get a BYU approved haircut. He wanted to keep it long but have clean edges so he would still be within the honor code rules. It didn't work and he ended up at the BYU barber shop before he could take his picture for his ID card.
Later we went to my aunt and uncles for a BBQ swim party. There were babies everywhere. I was in Heaven. This is where we ate and mingled. Not too shabby.
Dylan was hilarious. He was fearless! He is 18 months old and was jumping off the edge of the pool, the diving board, anything he could. He loved being thrown in the air too. He is so fun, I love him.
Claire was a little more cautious. She would try to jump off the edge but always ended up sitting down and scooting her bum off. It was pretty cute. She is definitely a dainty, delicate little girl.
The next evening my mom and I enjoyed a day of shopping while the boys fished at Strawberry. After, we all met up for dinner at Pago. It was delicious. Then we headed up our favorite canyon, Milcreek, and enjoyed some good ol' Spiker family fun.
It was a fabulous week and I didn't want my family to go home. I never want to leave them. Good news for me this time- Patrick is staying here with me. I LOVE having him up here. It makes me a teensy bit less home sick. He is one of my favorite people. He is always happy and a joy to be around. I am excited for the adventures this next year brings to us.
