Happy Birthday, Nate!

On May 10, 2010, Nathan Paul Burton turned 2 years old (even though he said he was 3 for about a week)! He is at such a fun age and is always making us laugh and smile. I have to admit that the presents he received were the things that I wanted him to have. I think he is allright with them as well:)

He got a small basketball hoop, since he was always trying to shoot the basketball in Isaac's hoop. Also, Nathan and Audrey received a play kitchen as a joint birthday present and it has been a big hit with all the kids. His birthday was a lot of fun, and , true to Burton form, the festivities lasted 3 days. On Sunday we celebrated Nathan's birthday at Grandma and Grandpa Burton's house. The video below is of Nathan blowing out his candles that night. Don't ask me why he tried to eat the tablecloth! He has those "Isaac moments" every so often. And in case you wonder, the reference to being a "decent human being" was in reference to a discussion we were having earlier when Stacey told Mom Burton that she had raised very "decent" kids. Oh, do we have fun!

Spring Break at "The Ranch"

I am finally getting around to posting our pictures from Spring Break. We spent the first part of the week at Grandma Foote's ranch house that is on the East side of Zions National Park in Southern Utah. It is one of our favorite places to escape. And you really do escape from cell phone reception and e-mail, so we become virtually unreachable, for better or for worse. We always have tons of fun at the Ranch, whether we are hiking, looking at Indian artifacts, wading in the stream, catching tadpoles, golf, swimming at the Thunderbird (in the summer), going to the sand dunes, eating dutch oven, playing cards, or just letting the kids play with their cousins around the Ranch house, we always seem to have a great time.
