the past couple weeks

jill, sam, and caroline playing. i thought jill was the only one that liked all my shoes. apparently anyone between 1-3 likes my shoes.
jill loved having gma and gpa pete and jon's family to visit. it was really fun to see her run around with sam and to wake up so happy to see gma and gpa pete.
jill showed sam what us arizonans do in april.

these are the only pics i took of the last few weeks. a lot has happened though. i'll blame it on the cold and my foggy pregnancy brain as to why i kept forgetting my camera. i've been waiting to receive some pics via email or steal them via other blogs but to no avail.

jeff's dad had a birthday a few weeks ago and it was great to see everyone and let jill play dress up with her cousins. jill has really opened up to letting anyone hold her and even prefers others at times over jeff or i. i'm not going to lie...sometimes it hurts my feelings.

my grandpa turned 90 years old two weeks ago. the petersons had a birthday bash (as "bashy" as you can at 90) for him in mesa and chandler. on thursday we met at the Old Country Buffet for dinner. jill actually liked the OCB Bee (thier mascot) and wasn't scared of him.

i was the lucky one to have my parents a couple brothers fly in for the event. it is so nice to see family. james and valerie brought carrie and jon and kristen brought sam. we all went to the zoo on saturday morning and then to the party. jill loved spending time with sam and caroline. this was my first time at a real zoo and i loved it. i couldn't get over the giraffe. are those things really real?

(i did steal a couple pics from kristen). jeff took my dad and jon out golfing. mom, kristen and i joined in a few holes with the kiddos. it's fun to just ride around on in the carts.

the day of the party jeff ran in Pat's Run with his family. this has quickly become a Taylor tradition. i can't wait until next year so me and the girls can participate. i ran it two years ago, four months prego with jill. i just thought being 9 months prego and my family in town i'd skip this year.

( i also stole these pics)

last saturday jeff did a triathlon. it was so cool. i'll be post about it soon...

Looks like you have been having so much fun with family. I can't stand running and I get so impressed at you and Jeff running so much. You need to give me some tips!
