Ty has been taking swim lessons. She is awesome!! She is learning so much and despite the cold, is having so much fun.
Dan went to scout camp for a week. Oh boy did he have some incredibly funny stories when he got home.
Because he was gone, the crazies and I decided to take a girls trip to Utah.
We went to the Mormon Miracle Pageant in Manti.
This girlie was mad at me because I wouldn't buy her a snow cone. Apparently I am the worst mother. But the funny thing is she wouldn't leave my side all night and even sat on my poor lap almost the entire pageant.
We had kiddos pretend that they were pregnant.
When I was young, every once in a while on Sunday we would get together with a few family friends and have "treats". Everyone would bring a treat and the adults would sit around and chat and us kids would play night games and whatever else we could think of. It is such a great memory of home. We were able to have "treats" while we were there and it was so fun to see my kids running around playing with all the other kids and to also chat with my "family"!
We went to the Rez.
We also went horse riding.
A couple of my crazies went solo. Jo Jo rode without ANY help. She held the reigns and rode the horse all by herself. GiGi also rode by herself, but she had someone walk the horse. I was a proud and nervous momma. I am hating that I didn't get a pic of GiGi. At one point miss Jo Jo decided that she wanted to have the horse run and so Morgan got on with her and they had the horse gallop. Oh my gosh, she smiled forever after that. I haven't seen her that excited for a long time.
Jenna came down the night before we left. She took my twinners back to her house to stay there for a few days. And I came home with only 2 of my crazies.
I had finally decided that I would go play soccer with the rest of our Family Home Evening group. I had to go by myself because my roommates were busy, which kind of sucked, but when I got there, there were three new guys and they were pretty cute.
I'm not the chatty type and so after the game I was just going to leave, but those guys called me over and we talked for a bit. Turns out they had just moved into the neighborhood, they were very funny and I was excited to get to know them. We started to hang out every now and then and we would see each other at church functions every week. Me and one of those guys started to flirt constantly and one day he finally asked me out.
Ten years later we are still together, have 4 crazy, beautiful girls, and I can't seem to get enough of him. I'm so blessed!
And because I am so wonderful, I let him go out on a date (on our anniversary) with two beautiful girls. It was a 50's theme dinner and dance. They had SO much fun!
