there's no place like home

May was a busy month. I had a wonderful Mother's Day, complete with breakfast in bed. It was the first time Brett has ever cooked for me, and it was so good I think he should do it more often.;) We moved out of our home, which was a little bittersweet for me. After all, it was the only home Chase has ever known. We've been staying with Brett's parents until we can move into our new home at the beginning of July, and Chase has adjusted very well. He recently acquired tooth #7, discovered a love for chicken nuggets, fruit snacks, and little smokies, and enjoys playing on the swings at the park and eating dirt. I thought people would stop commenting on how well he walks, now that he is 13 months old, but instead now everyone just comments on how well he runs! We took a trip to Missouri over Memorial Day weekend, and Chase did soooo well on the plane rides. He waved at everyone on the plane and in the airport, and played peekaboo with the people sitting behind us. It was a HUGE improvement from our last air travel adventure...thank goodness. Missouri was great. My brother David had just returned from serving an LDS mission in San Jose, California, so we hadn't seen him in 2 years and Chase had never met him. They hit it off instantly.:) We were also there to visit my sister Kristen's 8 week old son, Asher, who is a very sweet baby. Chase enjoyed being the center of attention and showing off for the whole Kent family, but especially playing with his cousin Aubrey. He is really into giving "loves" lately, and no one could resist his hugs, especially Grandma. He also loves babies, so we had to keep an eye on those "loves" when it came to helpless little Asher! We also got to celebrate my dad's 60th birthday with a big family bbq. All in all it was a fun trip, and I really enjoyed getting to see my family, and especially them getting to see Chase. We are so glad that summer is finally here and look forward to some fun events and trips in the next few months.

Wow, Kari, that is a busy month! How fun that David is home! Getting the whole family together is always a party!
