Fun, Fun, and more Fun

On wednesday we went back to Lagoon for another round of fun. The best part of it all was that it was free! We left Easton with Grandma and had such a good time. There was no lines and we did almost everything in 6 hours. The kids loved rattlesnake rapids, the mouse ride, and the new odyssey. Unfortunately, these were the only two pics we took.

Eric's brother and girlfriend came to visit from Grand Junction. They came Saturday night and stayed for the night. Everyone went to third dam to hike and walk around while Easton and I got a movie and started on dinner. Oh my gosh, one kid is so easy! I can't believe the huge difference. Anyways, we bbq at our house and watched "Spiderwick Chronicles". The kids liked it and it was pretty good. Today we went to bear lake and played on the beach. It was a lot of fun but then we had to leave so Eric could go to work. I then took the kids to my parents because my sister and her kids are in town. The kids love to play with them but we our exhausted!

fun with pics

My awesome friend/neighbor/co-worker Stacey told me about this website that you can upload your photo's and do all sorts of things. It was easy and quick which is always good.

ahhhh.....grass. Finally.

Yes, that is the start of a yard. Finally! It hasn't even been two weeks yet.

Eric decided to clean out the garage (ok, maybe it was my idea:) Look at all of that crap. He was cleaning until it got dark last night.

This is what happens when you've been working outside all day

And your daughter has had too much kool aid

Easton didn't want his picture taken-the kids were playing in the water and Easton wanted his wet clothes off

This is our front yard and I think it looks pretty good other than the footprints from my daughter!

This next week should be busy as usual-more baseball games, lagoon again on wednesday, work, neighborhood bbq, and my sister is coming in from Oregon.

Cute Pic's

We've had fun this past week with baseball games, playing at the park, and going to Lagoon. Yes, we were at Lagoon when the power went out for three hours! Easton was acting crazy because he missed his nap and we had to just sit around. It was so crowded but the kids had a good time. Lagoon is letting everyone get in free next time because of the inconvience but we have to go before the 30th. Next time I think we'll try and leave Easton with grandma. Oh, and on the way down to lagoon a piece of wood flew up and took off our driver's side mirror! It scared me to death but no one was hurt. I have been loving Eric's new shift. He was able to come with me to church and we could actually do something over the weekend. It has messed up my work schedule but I'll get used to it. Today my bff Crystal, all of the kids, and Eric and I went to firehouse. Love tuesdays for kids eat free! She then came over and cut my hair super short! I love it and the kids say I look like grandma. I'll have to post a pic later. We let the kids play at the park while we sat and talked. It's been a good day.

We had fun a couple of Sunday's ago at my parents house. My mom brought the camera out and they all wanted their picture taken. It is a tradition to go over to my mom's on Sunday's for dinner. We just eat, visit, and watch the kids play.

What a grumpy face!

The kids love grandpa's jeep!

I love this picture! It shows all of the grandkids that live around here. Can you believe all of these kids come from only 2 families?

The crazy girls

Cute bums

The boys

next week

This next week will be busy, as usual. Eric is FINALLY starting on his new shift which means he works today thru tuesday and every other wednesday. He had to work thursday thru saturday for his old shift so that means he is working 6 12-hour shifts in a row! Poor guy. We are supposed to be getting our yard power seeded tomorrow or tuesday so we have to do a final rake and get the weeds out of our yard. Eric also has to go back to the dentist tomorrow to get his permanent crowns. We also start T-ball and coaches pitch games this week so we have four games this week alone! Schreiber's is having their Lagoon day on saturday so we will be going to that. Just thinking about all of this is making me tired. And I get to work around all of this. I haven't updated on the kids for awhile so I thought I would be like my sis and tell a little bit about each of them:

Favorite Food: Alfredo, spaghetti, mac n cheese, rice, basically anything that is carbs
Favorite TV shows: Spongebob, Courage, Ben 10 but he loves to play video games more than anything!
Favorite People: DAD! He loves to play with his friends and have several in the neighborhood that he runs around with.
Favorite Color: Blue
Favorite things to do: Play video games, play with friends, basketball or any sport, read, play on the computer, eat
Funny things about Tyler: He is really into saying gross things. He has learned a few choice words about bodily sounds and parts and likes to say them to his sisters. (we are working on it) He is a good helper and even typed up his own chore list. He loves to empty and load the dishwasher right now. He is always a good help with Easton and will take him to the neighborhood park for me.

Favorite foods: Any fruit, meat, spaghetti, meatballs n rice
Favorite TV show: Hannah Montana, Scooby
Favorite People: Daddy, Mom, and Megan (her neighbor friend) She loves being with her cousins and Grandma. Her best friend is Kenadie and they are rarely seen without each other.
Favorite Color: pink
Favorite things to do: Play with Kenadie at the park, dress up, play make up, barbies, babies, and hold the kitty.
Funny things about Kylie: She is very sensitive and needs a lot of physical contact each day. She is my only child that begs me not to go to work every time. She loves to watch me put on my make up everyday and always wants me to put it on her. Even though she is girly she is tough! She likes worms, playing in the dirt, and being with the boys ( a little too much!) I've caught her kissing the neighbor boys and trying to hold hands. We are in soooo much trouble.

Favorite food: Ramen noodles, cereal, trying to drink my diet pepsi, ice cream
Favorite TV show: she doesn't watch much tv but likes Scooby
Favorite People: Kylie, mom, Megan, Grandma
Favorite color: Purple
Favorite things to do: play with kylie, play at the park, babies-she always has her babies close by and loves to put them to bed and dress up in Easton's clothes. They are always boys for some reason.
Funny things about Kenadie: She is very sweet and shy. If anyone talks to her she puts her head down and won't look at them. Just last week I had to give her talk for her in primary. She loves to talk and ask a lot of questions. She always wants to be my helper cleaning, cooking, etc. She says the funniest things. The other day she said "there is a lot of crap in here" and "that's retarded". I guess we need to watch what we say a little more.

Favorite Foods: cereal, any noodle, hot dogs, ice cream, fruit snacks
Favorite TV show: Scooby and Simpsons
Favorite people: mom, dad, and his siblings. He is very sad when the older kids leave without him
Favorite color: He doesn't even know what that is but I love him in anything blue to match his eyes
Favorite things to do: watch his "shows", play at the park, play outside in the dirt, pet the kitty or dog, brush his teeth
Funny things about Easton: He loves to go to bed and tell everyone "nigh-nigh", all of the kids will pretend he's a monster and run away from him-he loves it. He talks up a storm even though half of it is gibberish. He loves to give kisses and hugs. He has his blankie that was crocheted by one of my patients and if he finds anything made of that same material he tries to take it.

Whew! That was a long post. All for now.

cute pics

Yesterday was a crazy, busy day. We took the kids to get pics at kiddie kandids. Eric absolutely hates that place! We got some good pics and a pretty decent one of all of the kids. Then we went to Brigham, bought a couple more tree's and plants, got bark, and fixed our park strip. Finishing our yard has been such a long process and we should have our grass sprayed in a week. Stacey my neighbor/friend/coworker took these cute pics of the girls and I didn't even know she did it until she showed me the pics. Thanks Stacey!
