Um.... Okay..... So..... I laughed so hard this weekend that I had countless tears.. No, I seriously laughed so hard that I pulled a muscle in my back and set an appointment to see a freaking Chiropractor--talk about OLD!! Oh my gosh!! Seriously though this weekend was insanely fun! Katie hooked us up with a nice condo on the lake at bear lake... We danced, played games, hot tub-Ed, went for a drive, ate out.. It was so ideal! I laughed from the beginning to the end! I love that we all met in 2004 and have remained close throughout the years. I have the BEST memories of Logan and all the amazing roommates that I had. Love them All!
Well I turned 31. Doesn't feel much different than turning 30 ;)
It was a GREAT DAY! My Peyton had a 3 min presentation to give in class on Raspberry Farms. I was I timadated that a Kindergartner was getting this type of project. ....but he did so well! The only issue was little Sis deciding just at that moment to have a melt down.. :/ he did great his Score was 84/100.
We then went to Keaders for a breakfast, I went to dance with Jordynn (which is always a big highlight.) And then we went to Park City. We all slept from 9-8am! Yay! The kids loved swimming, as we were the only ones there. We went to Blue Iguana on Main Street (freezing!!) And watched a movie and had some ice cream. I'm obsessed with this Instagram shop called, Ecoflower- and Steve bought me a sign with scented wood flowers :) loved it. I wish the whole weekend could repeat itself.
Steve- NFL has begun! Wife: yay! (Sarcasm) bye Hubs! (go cowboys!) Peyton- baseball glove. He's had a blast playing baseball this month. He is going down in the books as "the kid who hit the ball so hard, it broke the bat.." (Trust me, I so wish I had documentation of that moment, just so happened to be phone-less.) He has a real talent in baseball, we can't wait to see what comes of it.
Bradyn- take your kiddos to see "Hotel Transylvania 2" Mr. B really enjoyed it!
Jordynn- her first pair of ballet shoes, obvi ;) She has a real knack for paying attention to her teacher, listening and performing.
Having ALL 3 kids involved in a sport/lessons has brought on a whole new definition of the word: BUSY! (try it;))
Us: My mom got us all together to do Family Pictures and with that some of our own. Some favorites
September and I have a past of not jiving so much, so much has changed this month!! "I'm so glad we live in a world where there are Octobers."
Our family's life has had lots of moments of confusion, disbelief, and stress these past 8 months. A friend once said.. While in moments of stress and sadness look towards serving those around you and you will forget for a moment the hard things you are going through. So the past couple of days, there have been moments for us to serve those around us. We took pictures of our nephew, Kayson last night..
We have a sister in law who is super sick.. So we got them dinner. We babysat for a sister, and I dropped off a treat to my Grandma today as it is her 2nd anniversary of my Grandpa's passing.. It was a nice break to not have to be so caught up in my own worries for a Day!
Me: (I get two) ~ @tayakyle the book "American Wife" was a fave of mine this month. An incredible story of Chris Kyle, written from the perspective of his wife, Taya. Chris Kyle's character was played by Bradley Cooper in the amazing movie, "American Sniper." An amazing story about Patriotism & endurance through trials. Everyone needs to read this one!
~ my mom & I went to Shania and a person who had seats on the floor got some gifts at the Concert and asked if I wanted this little booklet. I quickly replied, "YES!" :) It was a memorable time with my mom and loved every minute!
Steve: (he has two) ~ we went to Tuachan and saw "Beauty & the Beast." It was amazing! We dressed up as Beauty & the Beast one year, we obvi had to see the show 😉
~ Wackee 6. Seriously this card game is a Hoot! If you haven't played, you MUST! We ❤️ our Sunday evening card nights with @deveylicious.
Peyton: has been doing his second round of swim lessons and can swim on his own now! He loves his swim goggles a ton. I'm so proud of him!
Bradyn: He celebrated his 4th Birthday this month and received Lightning McQueen Slippers from his Aunt Heather. Let's just say they came out of the bag on to his feet and haven't come off since!
Jordynn: She had her first dance performance in the month of August ( I stiiiiil can't get over how well she did :)) so this is her first little dance leotard/tutu outfit :) One day I hope to make a shadow box devoted to that day.
Us: (two) ~Every year in the month of August approaching a Anniversary, we compile video clips that we've taken throughout the past year and make a video. This is a copy of our 7th year video. This past year has had immense struggles and hard trials & I feel we are still in the thick of it, so it's nice to remember all the fun moments & trips we've taken with our kiddos, and this video is a great reminder of the Joy. :) ~ we really enjoyed as a family doing the Parade of Homes. Our kiddos make it easy to pick up & do lots of diff things together. I could do the houses all day! •What are your Family's Favorites in August?• (thanks for the idea @jokoelliker @chloecolette )
August 19! We had a great time for our Anniversary! Steve gave me some roses.. We spent a night at the Anniversary Inn @ the Room with a View. We then took the kiddos to Saint George for the weekend as a little getaway before P began K! It was lots of fun! Saint George is such a little haven for us! We love and miss living there!
We saw Beauty and the Beast :)
While swimming P began diving for things in the deepest part of the pool! He's able to swim comfortably now without any floaties! Before he could, just not so much comfortably :) he's sure growing up!
Our sweetheart turned 4! He is such a ray of sunshine. We love him so much. He is so funny and smart. So sensitive and at times so shy and quiet. He is a lover of many things. He loves his siblings, especially his little sister :) he sure does protect her and guards her little heart! He's really enjoying being a Sunbeam at church. He finished a full year of preschool at Learning Dynamics and this upcoming year, he's going to be staying at home with me. The following year, before K I'll put him back into a preschool.. We've already made plans to keep him behind a year before starting K. We want the two boys to not have a 4 year span of missing one another on their missions. :)
Bradyn had one heck of a party. For the longest time he has just loved Thomas the Train. So we did a party and rented a train that came and took kids on rides :) it was so fun. We are so glad so many came!
At his pedi appointment he had his K shots. I've never seen a kid actually smile through it. He never winced or cried, just smiled what!? Haha.
