Well we had a great summer. Busy but fun! One week before school started I went on a girls trip to Vegas with my sisters, Tahnea and Sarah we had a blast! This is a little out of order but here are the pictures.

Well we have been very busy this summer. I was hoping I would have plenty of time to blog, scrapbook and play. But I didn't. I spent a lot of time organizing my house and playing with the kids. I'm not really sure the organizing was worth it, cause 1 week into school and it's all messed up again. I will be spending labor day re-doing everything. what fun! Here is a picture of me and the kids at my sister Sarah's apt. in Salt lake City. We visted her 2 weekends before school started. She has a pool and a workout room. We had a blast!

(Sorry Karissa I didn't call you, we had each day loaded since we were only there for 3 days. next time...promise)

Pay it forward with disclaimer

Here's how this game works-the first 3 people to leave a comment on this post will receive, at some point during the next couple of months, a handmade gift from me. What it will be and when it will arrive is a total surprise! The catch is that you must participate as well. Before you leave your comment, write up a pay it forward post on your blog to keep the fun going (or be lazy and copy and paste like I did). Then come back, let me know you're going to play (comment) and sit back and anticipate the arrival of your gift! Remember, only the first three get a gift, so you have to be super fast!This will be fun! I am excited to see what comes out of it ... HURRY, this will be fun!

We're back!

We are back in this cold dry weather. We had a blast in Cancun! We went deep sea fishing, snorkeling, clubbing in downtown Cancun and spent tons of time in the sun, either at the beach or at the pool. Way cool. Probably a once in a lifetime experience. Here are some photos...

So Excited!!!!

So this month (one week from this coming Sunday) we are going to Cancun and staying at the moon palace resort!! All expense paid. I am so excited. This couldn't have come at a better time. Just before finals!!! Kody won a trip from his work. I looked up the hotel, and it is ususally $400-$500 a night. I've never been out of America. I cant wait! (I've been tanning)

So Conner is a scout now, and we got to his first pinewood derby. He designed it, painted it, and helped put the wheels on. We had a little trouble sanding it, so his dad and grandpa helped him with that, but everything else was his invention. Kody wasn't sure about the design, cause he thought it would be too light, and there wouldnt be much wood left (hence the hard to sand!) But Conner must have known what he was doing, cause he got first. After getting beat last weekend in wrestling, winning first in this was amazing! He was so excited!!!

Grandpa Kirkham, Conner, Dad, and Naomi
YES! THOSE ARE REAL PISTONS!!! The big one is from a Semi Truck. And it is heavy, Conner needed help carrying it!

Enjoying the Sunshine!!!

Sunshine!! finally. After this very long winter, we had a sunny day, and just had to go outside to enjoy it. We went out after the girls dance practice at about 4:30, and EVERYONE in the neighborhood was outside! My kids were in their element being outside. Katlin and Naomi have been asking me every day if they could jump on the tramp, or ride their bike, and I had to keep telling them "No, it's too cold!" So we were out today for 3 hours!!! Talk about Spring Fever!!!

Speaking of Spring Fever; Kody and I are going to Cancun next month. I've never left the U.S. I am so excited! For my birthday, my sister-in-law got Kody and I a tanning gift certificate. I've never tanned in a tanning bed, and my legs haven't seen sun for 3 years. Word to the wise...Don't look at them without sunglasses on! My sister Sarah, helped me the other day go shopping for some clothes for the trip. It was fun to shop for summer clothes!
Conner got a long board for Christmas, and he hasn't been able to ride it, so he took it out, and thankfully, my cousin Shauvin came out to play. I don't know a thing about longboarding, and Shauvin had one, so he taught Conner how to work in his new board. Conner had a blast! He didn't want to go home! Thanks Shauv!

Katlin didn't want to ride her bike at first, so I loaded her in the stroller. My bike it hanging up in the garage, and I can't get it down. So when Kody gets home, I'll have to ask him to get it down for me!!

About Me

I’m a small town girl… Born and raised. I met my husband, Kody, at his brother's mission farewell, although he grew up 2 blocks from my house, we never met until then. He was fresh off his mission, and we were married 5 months later, on August 14, 1999. We still live in a small town, and now have 3 children. Conner; 8, Naomi; 5, and Katlin; 3. I am going to school (after 10 years!! ugh!!) and I work as a waitress part-time. We are busy, but enjoy having fun together!!!
