24th of July

For the 24th of July, we finally did something with ourselves! We went camping, and had an absolute blast! I may be biased, but I am pretty sure my family is THE FUNNEST to hang out with in the world. Period. Anyway, on with it.....

This little girl is the "she-devil." I only call her that because, well, she is. She was ordering Preston around the whole time camping, and he did whatever she said. Usually what she said was completely against whatever I said, however.

This is the snake that intrigued Preston to begin with...

Playing in the fire, as usual.

Lindsey and cute Gunner. I love him. Oh, and her too...

Lindsey and Neb

Family photo

I loved these giant marshmallows! They were SO good roasted


Lindsey, Kacey and I stayed up for a late night card game...
We had fun.
Linds and I get a little loopy at night, can you tell?? :)
She is going to KILL me for putting these pictures on here!

We had lots of fun, and I wanted to stay there. The end.

Independence Day

The Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays.
We have started traditions that we do every year now.
And I LOVE traditions!!

I really really {love} this picture of my P.
This year we were able to help Great Grandpa & Grandma S with a float they wanted to do, and P got to ride on the float for a bit.
I love our family.
They are the best!
Here he is waiting for the ride to begin
P and K
Grandpa B wanted to push G. And P wanted to ride with Grandma B
This airplane drops candy, and is driven by my (2nd?) cousin
A lot of fun!
And this night we went and watched the fireworks in our {secret spot} and finished off the night at Grandma B's.
And as a bonus, we went on the following Monday and watched the Brigham fireworks with some friends of ours who live in the perfect spot for it. Thanks Riley and Jess!!

Tay's Visit, and the big 4

***Back in June***
My older sister Heather just moved back to Utah...{Yay!!}
She has lived in the L.A. area for the last three years...
She had to stay in California for work a couple of weeks after they moved back, so my niece Taylor came and stayed with us!
Preston had a blast with her!
We rode the Frontrunner down to Salt Lake to get her
During her stay, we.......
Went swimming
Awesome "curly fry" {Is that what they call them nowadays??}
Went fishing...
Caught this frog by my house...Wierd!
Went fishing some more...
Hired my own personal butterfly catchers...

During her stay, Preston turned 4!!! I can't believe it! It makes me sad that he is growing up, but I am kind of excited to see who he becomes.
It was such a good day. We went to somewhere I haven't been in years and years, Chuck E Cheeses!! I LOVE IT!! I think I wanted to play the games and win the tickets more than P did! And the party followed....

Blowing out the candles
We had a fire truck party, and a pinata to match..
The kids loved it

I think that B-days should be done up BIG, because you just never know what is going to happen and how long everyone will be here. And also, why not??
We love you Preston, and are so glad you came to our family!!

Oh, my, what a crazy busy last few months it has been!!
Kacey still hasn't had a Saturday off
I am doing summer school and have a pretty hard class
Preston still likes to "help" me around the house all day long
Gunner still needs to be fed and changed several times a day
All this = no time to blog.
Here is what we have been up to the last little while in a nut shell....

Play dates with cute cousins....

Preston and his cousin Brinley

Gunner and his cousin Maisie

New Carpet!! (Hallelujah!)

(Can you see all of those stains....disgusting. It had to go.)

Preston really helping with ripping out...


(sort of. He was more concerned with throwing sticks in the water. Silly little boys....)

Building stuff..
He did really good. I was impressed!

Doesn't he look like a baby bird??


Let's see. What else......Oh, we are selling our condo. I have really loved it, but we have a child who NEEDS a yard with a fence to play in. So if you know anyone in the Ogden area who wants a large condo, have them check out our ad.......

We are attempting to sell it ourselves. I have a really hard time swallowing paying someone 4 grand to put it on a website. If anyone has any advice, do tell.......We will see.........

SIX years people!!

As of today we have had SIX years of wedded bliss!!
What an amazing six years it has been!!
I am so lucky and grateful for Kacey to be my eternal partner! He means EVERYTHING to me. I don't even want to think of what I would do without him!!
I love you Kacey. (Muah)

Sorry, no pictures this time. It has been a bit crazy at our house the last few weeks. I am finishing up my Spring semester tomorrow(today, I guess) and then I have a week off and then back to school I go!! We are finishing up putting tile in our house this week and then we are going to touch up a few places with paint, put in new carpet, and put this baby on the market!! We are really hoping to find something in Willard that has a yard and a garage because poor Preston needs a space to play in that is all his own and not a "community" space. Or it could just be that I am an overprotective mother and would rather have a backyard, who knows!!

Kacey has been working his little tail off the past two months because one of the other mechanics (there are only three of them, including Kacey) had an accident and will be out for six months or so. I feel so bad for him, he has been working six days a week ever since.....

Preston is doing very well and I seriously love him more every day. Even things that he does that I think annoy other people, I think they are cute. He sure does keep me young, that is for sure!!

And Gunner, well Gunner is just plain adorable. He is almost six months old now and in such a fun stage. He tries to grab everything and eat it, and says mamamama when he gets mad. I am seriously in love with him and P. They are THE BEST. And I think I am in trouble, because I could seriously have like six more babies, and I would love it. I am just so happy with my life right now and what I am doing. I never imagined I could be this happy!
Okay, maybe just one picture. This is from way back in March when G started eating baby food. He is a seasoned pro now. Hopefully I can transfer our pics onto my computer this weekend and show you some more cute pictures.........

Update is coming soon. I promise!!

I love this time of year. I really do. It is just starting to get warm with lots of sunshine-y days. I love it. It is also a time when I do alot of thinking. As you know, my sister-in-law was doing a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society where you donate money and get bouqets of daffodils in return. She brought me my beauties yesterday and it couldn't have come at a more appropriate time. 13 years ago next week, my dear Grandma H passed away due to a malignant brain tumor. She passed away within 7 months of being diagnosed. It was a very hard time for my family, especially my mom. I still haven't gotten over it and I cry every time I think about her. I miss her so much, and I know my mom does too. :( I know it was her time to go, but I still wish she was here sometimes. It makes me sad thinking of all of the things she is missing out on.
It also makes me very grateful that me and everyone in my family are all healthy and going strong. And it makes me grateful that I get to wake up to these adorable faces every morning.....

How lucky am I??

Groundhog day

I am ready for winter to be over. Now.
I NEED sunshine.
I NEED flip flops.
I NEED bermuda shorts.
I NEED warm summer nights.
I NEED weekend camping trips to Blacksmith fork.
I NEED to be able to take Preston to a park and let him loose without putting 6 layers of clothing on him.
I am having a second case of cabin fever this winter. (the first one being the first six weeks of G-man's life.)
And, I am beginning to feel exactly like the guy on Ground hog day.
Wake up. Feed Gunner. Go back to sleep. Wake up again. Feed Gunner. Feed Preston. Try to study. Feed Gunner again. Feed Preston again. Feed Gunner. Feed myself, perhaps. Put in a load of laundry. Pump. Go to school. Come home from school. Feed Gunner. Feed Gunner for the last time. Shower? Go to sleep.
Every Day.
Okay, not EVERY day. But the other days we are too exhausted to do anything. Or one of us doesn't feel like it.
Don't get me wrong. I LOVE my life, and where it is going, and everything I have.
However, I am seriously going insane.
I have considered running away several times.
Just to spice things up a bit, have a change of scenery.
And I would even take the kids with.
Moral of this story is, Summer, I am ready for ya!!
We have got to get out of this house!!
( I guess I would even settle for spring!!)

Family Photos

A couple of weeks ago, we had our pictures taken by a good friend of ours ( and my sisters sister-in-law) Rylee. She did a wonderful job and we were so excited to see the final product.... It was FREEZING that day and it was a little hard to get Preston to pose, but they still turned out great!! And there was a ton to choose from, this is only a smidgen. I am going to have her take some more in the summer of Preston and Gunner individually......... :)
This is her photo blog/website.
Go check her out. Now!
Thanks Rylee!!
