So much has happened that I really don't know where to start. Our "baby" turned two years old on May 10th (I'm calling him that as long as I can because I cant accept the fact that he is not going to be my baby anymore, he is our big boy). He has changed Gregg and I so much that I honestly believe Shakobe was meant to be the big brother to train his parents and siblings the importance of family and life in general. Even though he is acting like a 2 year old these days with the random tantrums and fits I sit back and feel totally okay with it because I know I have been a very spoiled mommy. Here is a overload on the Rigby happenings especially the famous Shakobe Jam (aka birthday party) that we had for our wild little man!!!
My little mans birthday began with his all time favorite breakfast Blueberry Muffins. I stuck two candles in for him to blow out. He obviously does not get the whole birthday candle thing yet because after he blew out the candles he decided to take a bite out of one to see how they taste. They were not as good as he expected. LOL.
Munching on some yummy birthday cake as his dad reads his birthday cards to him!!!
Apparently the zoo has brought back the hippopotamus's because I see one holding Shakobe in this picture.
Note to self: never agree to pictures when 8 months pregnant.
What a perfect end to a perfect day!!!
This was at Richmonds black and white days celebration. Of course shakobe made his grandpa proud by being most excited to see the big John Deere tractor.
Gregg and I just want to send a enormous thanks to our wonderful friends the Carters for their amazing act of kindness. Gregg took on the project of putting in our back yard this year and on the last day of school we had sawd delivered to our home. We went to a end of the year bbq for my work planning on rolling the sawd the next morning. We were at the party and caught wind that the Carters along with several other families from our neighborhood and ward were trying to surprise us by laying out our whole yard while we were gone. We rushed home as fast as we could to help them finish. Gregg and I were in total shock that there were so many people willing and waiting to help our family out of the goodness of there hearts. It was such a blessing for me because I was very worried about my husband taking on such a big task all by himself knowing he especially would not let me help him let alone ask anyone else. It was a wonderful learning experience for my family to see how great this world really can be and how important Gregg and I feel it is to teach our children about the power of service to one another. My family is very lucky to be surrounded by so many great examples!!
It was a very special moment.
