So there has been a lot going on the last couple of weeks. First off, the kids, my mom, Heidi and I spent a week in Utah. First we stopped in Hurricane to visit my best friend in the whole world Jesee and her family. I just miss her to death and it was so nice to see her and let our kids play. And boy did they play. They played so hard and I was so worried that they were going to break something at her house that I didn't even get any pictures of them playing. Sorry Jes, but we loved being there and hanging out!!!!
Next, we headed north to Lehi to visit my Aunt Marsha, Uncle John and Grammy. Grammy lives half the year with my parents and half the year with my aunt, and the boys were so excited to see her, they were talking about it the whole 5 HOUR DRIVE from Hurricane. Once again I really really stink at remembering to take pictures, so I didn't get any of them. Yah yah I'm a slacker I know. The weather was so beautiful there, that I was half way ready to tell Adam that we were going to become snowbirds, and live there for the summer. I wish I would have gotten pictures of how beautiful it was. My morning runs were blissful (and also hard because there were so many hills!). There were mountains everywhere, and let me just tell you, you know you are in Utah when.....you pass about 8 ward buildings on your run, they were everywhere! I loved it.
Here are the boys at one of the many parks we took them too over the week. They were loving it. The weather was so nice we were at the park almost everyday. I can't wait for it to cool down here!
One of the many reasons I was so excited to go to Utah was the fact that they have restaurants there that they no longer have here. One of which is Wingers! I am in love with this restaurant! It takes me back to highschool, when Jesee and I would go there like once a week during the summer. Please tell me you remember them! They give you free popcorn, and their wings are more delicious than anything else we have here. Buffalo Wild Wings? Bleh! Wings Express? Bleh! Native New Yorker? Double Bleh! Wingers you rock!!
The other restaurant I just HAD to have while there was Bajio (sorry no pic)! Yum. They closed the one on Stapley and the freeway and I was devastated. And don't tell me Cafe Rio or Costa Vida are better, YOU LIE! Me loves me some Bajio!
Oh and I got me these darn cute shoes while in Utah as well. Oh and they were only 9 bucks! Rock on! Yah they are not even remotely comfortable on my feet, but that is just a small price to pay for the cuteness, or so I tell my husband. :)
Anyhoo, when we got home, I was ready to be home. A week away from that husband of mine about did me in. I talked to him like 3 times a day while we were gone and I was still just itching to get home. AAAHHHH reunions, they are.........wonderful. Love you babe.
Okay onto the other happenings. The boys shared a room the entire time we were gone, so when we got home, I officially moved Kade into Blake's room, and made Kade's room the play room for now. (No we are not having another baby yet. It's amazing how many people asked if we were having another kid just because I said the boys were sharing now.) It took forever to get everything moved over, I had to take apart Kade's bed and then put it back together again in Blake's room. I really didn't realize how many toys they had until I was getting everything moved. And the books! Oh the books, my back hurts just thinking about moving the dresser full of them. I was spent by the time that was done. Then this weekend Adam bought them bunkbeds and put it all together. It looks good.
My next project was this....
Yep I painted my room. I decided that we have lived in our house for too long to not have our bedrooms painted yet, so I went to work. I painted the wall green and hung up this monster picture that has been sitting collecting dust behind my dresser for the last 2 years.
Why? Funny you should ask. I figure, if I do it, then Adam won't have too. My hubby works so hard and has a time consuming calling in our ward, so really I want any time I can get with him and the boys. So if I can get projects that he usually does done myself then he gets to spend more time with me and our babies. Good plan eh!
Phew that was a long post! And here are the "crazies" being, well, crazy!
So long friends!
