So I'm a few weeks behind. I didn't post why Gerad rocks last week because we got up early on Friday and worked until late redoing our kitchen floor. We laid some oak laminate and it looks so great. He took off 6 days of work and we did our floor on Friday and finished putting the kitchen back together on Saturday. On Sunday we left for a three day "vacation" just the two of us and it was sweet! We went to Keith Urban concert on Monday and rocked out with Kath and Lo - we had so much fun, just laughing and joking all night. We're still talking about our trip and how we can't wait until we escape for a weekend again! I'm so glad I married him - we have so much fun together and can get through everything in life together!
So here's why he rocks - because He love me! He cares enough to get me away from "life" so that I can come back totally refreshed and recharged and be a better wife to him and mom to the kids. He's so smart and I appreciate it so much!

So I have a sad story for my husband rocks this week. Today, Gerad sold his motorcycle. He's had it for about 5 years and all of our married life. We've had so much fun on it. We've taken it to Warriors Games, Hot August Nights, Wallowa and just some sweet rides around town. The reason this makes him rock is because this was his decision completely. He decided it would be best for our family and that makes him rock. He loves us so much he gave it up for us (kinda reminds me of the sacrifice Jesus made - giving something you love up for those you love knowing in the end it's all worth it). He's so great! I know it'll be different and take some time to get used to having an empty space in the garage, but in 25 years we'll have our Corvette to park there :)
Before Ben was born I really wanted to purchase a vita mix. They are a serious blending machine and do so much more - anyway. It was definitely out of the picture so I made baby food in my food processor (it worked ok). Then for our 3rd anniversary Gerad got me a vita mix - YAY! Yesterday I made my first batch of baby food in it and it was incredible. Since peaches are in season I decided I should stock up on peach baby food (hopefully she likes it (: ). I used 8 peaches and got 60 ice cubes of peaches! I'm so excited because it took like no time at all - maybe 20 minutes! If anyone has any fabulous baby food recipes send them my way!
