February 2010

In February, they have Bald Eagle Day at the Fountain Green fish hatchery and throughout Sanpete County.  Mardi & Michelle & their kids came for a fun Ft. Green overnighter.  We had a fun driving around looking for eagles.  We saw so many!  One even flew right in front of the van.  They are huge and amazing!  After being cooped up in the car with all the kids it was time to go sledding.  We had a great time! 

Mark & I celebrated our 5th anniversary on Feb. 19.  We went to Salt Lake and stayed the night and enjoyed an amazing dinner at Donovan's and went to a concert at the Conference center.  It was fun to get away together and celebrate.

 Jake sure loves his Aunt Shelly!

Boy, oh boy, oh boy!

We found out today that we are having another boy! That means I will forever be picking up matchbox cars, trains, and stepping on Legos. But I will also be getting more snuggles from another adorable boy! I do love little boys!

Jacob is excited to have a baby brother. Sammi isn't too "interested in having another brother." I think she will change her mind as soon as he gets here.

We are excited and can't wait for October to come. We have waited for a long time for another baby!

2010 in Review

So, I really don't have an excuse to why I haven't blogged in over a year, other that I haven't made it a priority. I like having a blog for a history sake. I am doing this so that I can print it and have it to look back on. I am going to pick up where I left off.

January 2010

We rang in the New Year in Fountain Green with family. We had a great time, ate great food, and had a fabulous time sledding.

Jacob got brave enough to go by himself.
Later in the month we finally had the perfect snow to build snowmen.

Mark celebrated his 40th birthday a month early. He went to Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo, Mexico for a week. It was suppose to be a brother's fishing trip, but only one of his three brothers ended up being able to go. Some of his cousins and a niece were able to go with. They had great time! They didn't end up catching any sail fish which they were hoping to, but they caught other fun things. When they weren't catching fish they had beautiful views of dolphins, sunsets and the ocean. He enjoyed his week of warmth and fun. I stayed home with the kids. Shelly came and stayed the week to help out with the kids. It was fun to have her stay over each night. We had lots of time for girl talk and fun.
Here was the whole gang who went on the Mexico trip.

Dec. 30, 2009 - Snow fun!

When we returned from Las Vegas we had a big snow storm. The kids enjoyed a great day of sledding at the church with all of the neighborhood children. I enjoyed capturing it with my new camera. It is great have a camera that is speedy enough to catch all of the fun action shots.

Dec. 27 - 29, 2009 - Las Vegas & The Lion King

We went down to Las Vegas for our little Christmas get-away. Grandma Gerry came with us. We had a great time! The kids liked walking on the "red carpet" at the Hard Rock Cafe, going to M&M world,
Coke World,
Cesar's Palace and seeing the fountains at the Bellagio.
The highlight of the trip of course was seeing The Lion King at Mandalay Bay.
I saw it in New York years ago, but it was incredible to see it with the kids. It is such a magical show! The music and puppetry is amazing! We were nervous if Jacob, at 3 years old, would watch and enjoy the show or just annoy everyone around us. He was completely mesmerized! We all loved it!
Jacob kept asking why Shelly couldn't come. She told him that she didn't have enough money. He kept talking about it later and would tell her she needed to get some money so that she could take him to see The Lion King again.

We had such a fun little trip! Such great memories were made!
