A couple of days ago, we gave Bridger his "first" hair cut. His hair was just getting so long every where and was hanging over his ears. As we took out the electric trimmer and started,I was amazed at how much hair he was actually losing! So, now he looks like an adorable little boy and not my baby! It kind of made me sad, and then I realized that he is getting older....he will be a year old in December.
Today, Jake's little brother Jordan got married. I get so bummed when we have to miss our siblings' weddings. It is such a joyous occasion and should be enjoyed by all family members, but it was just too far and Jake had to work. There is no way in heck that I would take on such a long road trip with 2 little ones! Not going to happen! I hope it was a great and memorable day for Jordan and Andrea!

Poor Addie

We went to the doctor yesterday because Addie was going to the bathroom like every 2 minutes and was having some other "issues". Turns out our little girl has a bladder infection. When the doctor gave us her prognosis, I felt terrible because I had been so impatient with her and how she had been behaving thinking it was all just behavioral issues. She in now on some medicine, and hopefully she will be back to her normal self again!

Becoming domesticated little by little

So yesterday, I tried something that I have never done before! I bought a box of peaches to split with a friend. Yesterday her and I got together with a friend to can our peaches. I was surprised at how easy it really was, time consuming yes, but not rocket science! So, now I have a couple of yummy looking peaches sitting on my kitchen counter......just calling for me to open one and try it! I think Addie and I will have to share some for lunch! This is me attempting to become domesticated!!!! One down, and much more to go!

Glacier Park

This last week, we went and met up with My oldest Brother Nathan in Glacier Park. He was up in Montana for business and wanted to do some sight seeing while he was here. we would have joined him sooner, but at the very last minute....we got sick! Of course, right! So we were just there for 2 days, and the weather wasn't the best.....but BOY WAS IT BEAUTIFUL there!

The many faces of Glacier Park

Four Wheeling- The Fountain of Youth

Jake's dad swears that four wheeling really does shed years of your life! This is the one thing that he just can't get enough of it seems!

Addie and mommy going for a little drive!

Hey everyone! It is now the weekend, yay! Jake's vacation is coming up....this Tuesday to be exact and he will have the whole week off! We are looking forward to "paid vacations"! We have come to really enjoy the perks of having a career, and not just a job! Paid vacations, sick leave, annual leave, etc come in real handy! With that said, we have decided to venture off to Glacier least thats the plan! With it nearing fall around here, the weather is getting cooler and we are hoping for agreeable weather while we are there! The nice addition to our oldest brother Nathan will be joining us! He is kind of a fun guy to have around.....and he just happens to have business in our neck of the woods.
Today was a bit of a somber day for Addie and I. Our good friends the Craven family have moved......Sara became a very good friend of mine, and it was really nice having a friend who literally lived across the parking lot from us. I will miss her friendship and company. She had a son Braxton who was 1 1/2 older than Addie and they also were little buddies. I guess thats part of make dear friends and sometimes one or the other have to move on, it just seems like we always stay while the other moves on....maybe the truth of it is that we're just scaring everyone away!!
Bridger now has 2 teeth, and they are so stinkin' cute! I love seeing his smile with his two little teeth.....what a face, what a face! it seems that now he is less fussy now that these two have come through. I really hope it stays this way, I don't remember Addie being this fussy and cranky when her teeth were coming through!

Bridger's big debut!

Well folks, I am aware that it has been forever and then some since I last posted! My deepest apologies! I am going to try and be better! Especially now that there have been some big milestones in the Clark family! Yesterday our little......I guess he's not so little, but rather our big chunk, decided to start crawling! He had been taking little steps here and there for a couple weeks now, but yesterday he started crawling everywhere! What was his motivation? I shall tell you! I was on my hands and knees pretending to be a horse so Addie could ride on my back! I was giving her a horse back ride to her bed for her nap. Well, Bridger saw this and thought it looked fun and started crawling right then and there and was following us out of the living room! It was hilarious! Since then he is a crawling machine and getting into everything! I don't know if I am completely ready for a kid who is mobile like this! I have a feeling that most of my days will consist of chasing after him and taking things out of his mouth that he found somewhere!! Although at the same time, it is exciting as a parent to see your kids progress! I love being a mom, I have the cutest kids ever!! he also had a tooth pop through about 2 1/2 weeks ago, which confirmed our suspicions of him possibly teething......because let me tell you we have one cranky kid on our hands! I will be glad when the teething is over!

Another geocaching trip, never mind me without any makeup!

We put socks on his hands because he is constantly trying to suck his thumb! He loves to stand!

Well, it's about time!

Yea, sooooo...I have been really bad about updating our blog lately! If you want anyone to blame, I Guess we could all blame little Bridger, our newest member of the family! We survived the winter, and are loving this beautiful spring weather....although friends here have informed us that last year in June there was a nice snow storm! Hmmmm, lets hope there won't be a repeat of that! So for right now, it is gorgeous and warm! Jake is continuing to love his job ( I love saying that! It's awesome to know he has a's no longer a temporary thing!) he checked out of his ground training back in early February and in return, he got a nice raise! He is currently working on checking out of his local control now and should be checked out by July at the latest. He loves it, he enjoys his co workers and he loves our new city Helena! I have been rather busy too! I am now a mom of 2 small kids and was recently called to be the second counselor in Relief Society--what was the bishop thinking? Talk about being overwhelmed! Sundays were stressful enough for me since Jake works every single Sunday! I really like the other presidency members though and look forward to getting to know all the great sisters in our ward....and hope they have lots of patience....with me there, they will need it!
Addie is.....well, she is Addie! She is spunky and has a ton of energy and a lot to say! She has made so many friends and has so much fun with them! Most of them are boys though!! Her Birthday is coming up on the 27th of this month and she will be 3! I can't believe I have a 3 year old! She is having a birthday party this coming Saturday and she decided she wants a Mickey Mouse Club House theme party! She did want a tinkerbell or some girlie theme, but considering most of the guests will be boys....I finally got her to agree on a more gender neutral theme!
Bridger is now just over 4 months old and a huge chunk of chubs! He weighed in at 18 lb. and 11 oz.! He certainly feels that heavy! He is such a happy baby and it doesn't take a whole lot to make him smile and get bashful! His little smile just melts my heart! Last night he rolled over for the first time! I started screaming when he did it, and I scared Jake a bit! I was just so excited! Of course, he only did it just that once! I'm sure he will be getting the hang of it and rolling over all the time here soon! It's so fun to see the little milestones our kids go through, and it's hard to accept that our children grow up eventually. I am so blessed though to have my children be "practically perfect in every way!" They are healthy and happy and developing normally.....which just makes me so grateful. Heavenly Father has been so good to my family and I! I will be posting some pictures here of Addie's birthday party and of my great family!

my mom and Addie! Adeline loves her Oma so much that during the blessing, she just kept squeezing and kissing my mom!!

3 generations of the Clark family! Grandpa Clark with his son and grandson
My parents came up along with Jake's dad for Bridger's blessing. We decided to have him blessed in our home so Jake's dad could be present, weekends are a bit difficult for his parents due to their jobs. Here is Jake with his dad, our bishop, and my dad. What a handsome group of priesthood holders!
