Random Happenings....

Wow!!! It is hard to believe this summer is half way over!!! It pretty much rained the whole month of June, but now we are having some great weather! Windy, but sunny and warm, I WILL TAKE IT!! June was pretty slow for us...the best part of it was when my mom and sister (and her kids) came to visit for a week!! We had so much fun and I am always amazed at how much I laugh when my sister is around, and how well all of our kids get along...I didn't have to break up any fights during the whole week....and we are talking 8 kids!!! My sister and I worked out everyday and she loved the classes that I am taking! My mom built me some awesome shelves (she is the next Bob Vila) and planter box, and a beautiful shelf in Shane's room (we also painted his room, pics to come) It was a busy busy week!! And yes, I cried when they left..not embarrassed to admit those kind of things!
This month is going to be crazy....We went to Yellowstone, Madison has girls camp, we are going to Boise for a week because my mom is retiring and my niece Sara is getting baptized!! This month will go by fast I am sure and today I got a wild hair and decided to potty train Jenna...nobody else was going to do it so I guess I had to.....she just did is hoping to a great day tomorrow!!! I do have a funny story about her that I wanna post......Last week I gave the kids MUG root beer with their dinner...Jenna got some too. I gave her less then 1/4 cup afraid she would spill...she kept coming in for refills..maybe 3 times....all of a sudden she was on the tramp telling me that she wanted her Binky and baby (her most prized possessions) and she was telling me she was sick and wanted to go night night....I was holding her and asked her if she was going to throw up...she said yes so I ran her to the sink...YOU WOULD NOT BELIEVE THE MAN BELCH THAT CAME OUT OF THAT LITTLE GIRL!!! Seriously, it was LOUD AND LONG! I was laughing so hard, especially after she said, "all better mommy" SOooooo FUnny! Well, I finally added some stuff to the blog and I even added Pictures!! Goooooo Jamie!

Our Visit with LIssy!!!

This is my Lissy! I have known her for 14 years! She is 17 now and pretty as ever! She was able to come spend a few days with us and I am soooo happy that she did!! She is so very special to us!! We love you Lissy and can't wait til you come see us again!!!


So, I did a little feet draggin with this Yellowstone trip, but I have to say it was a nice nice nice day!! Yellowstone is beautiful!! The only thing I would change is the amount of time spent in the car!!! We decided that Old Faithful would be our last stop that day and when we got there we only had to wait 5 minutes!!!...then, back to the car for the looooong ride home!!! It was loads of fun to hang with Travis' family!
