Kicking and Screaming

I know what a few of you are saying because I've said it to myself, "It's about time you post again." Well, I hope I'm back. I hope I've figured out my life with all the changes in the past few months. There have been quite a few.
The last time I posted the boys were not even born. What a ride Cami and I have been through these past few months. The boys were born; I left for Sales Conference 5 days later; Christmas break; the worst stomach flu in years; back to work; the craziest quarter for work; lacrosse season overlapping from Q1 to Q2; the wins and losses of the season; the funeral in California; the boys forcing us to buy a new car; the trip to California and meeting family from Nana's side; the business trip back to CA only hours from returning from CA; the end of season for lacrosse and the end of coaching for some time; the green car breaking and me starting to commute work on my bike; and now we're approaching Memorial Day and going to spend it with the Yerke's.

My only guess from Cami's perspective is that I was gone too much. I've learned that I don't want to be gone that much. I resigned from coaching after the season so I can spend more time with Cami and the boys. We purchased a bike trailer so we can go on bike rides and take the boys. Our first real adventure will be tomorrow on the bikes in Stansbury Park. We're looking forward to a day full of biking.

We're also looking forward the four straight weeks I have off starting the 3rd full week in June. We'll kick the week off by finalizing the adoption with the judge, and later that week we'll go to the temple to be sealed together as a family! Cami and I will cap the entire 4-week vacation with a cruise to Alaska. Only three more weeks to go...

The boys have grown so much. They've persuaded Cami and I to buy a new car. They've told us they don't like to drink just plain milk formula. They want soy. They like rice cereal, for whatever reason, I don't know why. That stuff stinks. They like to roll around in their beds and get their arms and legs caught in between the slats. They like to laugh; cry, poop, pee, eat, and sleep. They don't care for pacifiers but like their fingers, and sometimes their whole hand. The can't fall asleep without a blanket to cuddle, and they're letting us know little by little that we need to start baby-proofing our house.

Stay tuned for more pictures and stories from the Hutton home. This summer is going to be great as the boys start crawling, as the days get longer, as we get into our spandex and start riding!
