Joshua turns 2!!

Wow, I can't believe my baby is 2 today. Time flies when you're having fun...or when you're busy up to your eyeballs with 4 other kids! Anyway, as I reflect upon these past 2 years, I can't imagine our family without the cutie. He has brought so much more joy and love into our family. These are just a few of the things I love so much about Joshua...(nicknamed little peanut, Mr. Chompers, peanut putter (Joseph calls him that), and chub of love:

**His smile (or giant grin) - not only his he always smiling, he has a great smile with these perfect teeth!

**With Joshua's wonderful disposition, I don't think the "terrible twos" have caught up with him yet. He still likes to hold my hand when we walk instead of trying to run around everywhere. Just a pretty mellow kid.

**He is so loving and cuddly -- last child we had like that had to be Starr.

**Not only is he a "mommy's boy", he's just as much a "daddy's boy" -- he just lights up when he sees either one of us and doesn't seem to prefer one over the other.

We celebrated his birthday today at the park. I finished decorating his cake during the morning session of General Conference and soon there after went to Tumbleweed Park in Chander for the informal festivities. This was a new park for us -- but we had heard great reviews about it. It was so windy when we arrived, but Josh didn't seem to mind. He loved his presents, the cake, and playing on all the fun stuff.

Aunt Katie brought bubbles for the kids to play with... and it was a little easier to eat our cake sitting on the sidewalk verses in the wind at the table.

The playground was massive with a huge cover over the top for shade....(which came in handy today since it was a tad bit warm).

Josh received this water/sand table his from his mom and dad -- he LOVES it (and so does the others).

Your right, he does have the best smile! And for some reason when ever you see him you just want to squeeze him. We sure love that guy.-The Mitchells
