St. George

My mom and dad took all of us kids down to St. Geroge to spend a couple of days in a hotel where the kids could go swimming and go to Tuacahn to see "Footloose". It was a great time. We went shopping at the outlets and it seems like we were eating every hour.

Happy Birthday Gavin

My little boy turned 6 years old on July 11th. We had a family party for him and took him bowling (at his request).

4th of July - Lava Hot Springs

I haven't had the time to post all of our pictures yet so these are a few weeks old, but I wanted to capture the memory so when I convert my blog into a family book one day - these will all be there.

Guys Only Weekend (but mom really could use one)

Jeremy and my brother-in-law Rhett flew down to see my brother in California today to go golfing at Torrey Pines in San Diego over the weekend.

This was Jeremy's day...

This was my day...

Hurry back home because I am already planning my weekend getaway (Ha Ha)!! Hope you are having fun down there - you deserve a little break too! Love ya.

Summer Vacation

I am really excited for the 4th of July weekend (I know it's a couple weeks away). We have planned a trip with all of Jeremy's family to go up to Lava Hot Springs/Soda Springs for the weekend. Idaho is my second home. I grew up in the small town of Soda and have many great memories. They are all being good sports about going down memory lane with me and letting me plan the activities to keep us busy! I even agreed to do a 5K run (but I will walk) with my sister in law Courtney if in return she will drink some of the "spring" water! I haven't told her that yet...

Here's a sneak peak at some of the things I have planned for us!

Fresh Start

I will spare you all the many excuses I have as to why I haven't updated my blog (primary, primary and primary) just to name a few. My kids have been sad that I haven't done much with our blog lately so I am making a fresh start. We have had several things go on the last couple of months (birthdays, baseball games, piano recitals,etc) so I told the kids (and aunt Natalie who is thousands of miles away)I would post some pictures and play catch up.

We signed Gavin up for Rookie Baseball this year. He has had the best time and absolutely loves it. His team name is "The Knights".

Happy Birthday Tianna (March 17th)- Classic Skating

The kids have wanted a small dog, but I have always put my foot down and said "no". I came home from work one day and Jeremy had been searching on KSL for puppies and came across the "perfect dog for the kids" - he thought he sounded so persuasive. I said, that's nice and dismissed the thought. To make a long story short, I was out numbered and was told by the kids "I promise I'll take care of it", "I'll clean up his poop and take him for walks". All you moms out there know what I am talking about - you have heard it before, right! Well here is Max. He is a 12 week old Yorkie weighing about 2 pounds. The kids love him and have been very good about taking care of him (so far). I just hope I make it through the puppy phase before wanting to give him away. Did I mention this is our 4th attempt at owning a dog? Need I say more...
