Honestly I don't know how the months get away from me. I feel like it has been a few weeks maybe since I've posted and then suddenly I see it has been months. Time seems to be moving faster and faster these days, and my kids keep growing faster and faster too! I wish I could slow things down a little. We've had some excitement over the last little while. First of all Joey got more stitches. This boy is always getting banged or bonked, scratched and dented! We were helping Eric's parents move out of their house. Joey was a VERY enthusiastic helper and turned to run inside at full blast to get another tidbit to put in the truck. Well wouldn't you know it, he ran right into the truck tailgate and busted his eyebrow open. Luckily we were able to get it stitched up right away at a friend's house (it's good to have friends with skills--thanks Jim!). Joey was a trooper and thought his new battle wound was pretty awesome.
Winter brought us some snow as well--the kids had fun playing in it. I still would rather not live in a place where it snows--growing up we VISITED the snow, we didn't LIVE in it. I prefer it that way! But now that we've got a plow on the Ranger it makes for a relatively quick clean up of the driveway. Now we've just got to teach Tyler how to do it!
Joey looked around the stadium and said: "Mom! There are 99 people here!" I told him, "More like 9,999!" He looked at me and said, with a hint of authority, "No, mom...that would be the whole entire world." Ha ha. So I guess there was 99 people there.
Okay, random break from San Diego--my pics came in out of order and it is too much effort to straighten them out! The kids got chalk from the Easter Bunny and boy was it a hit! Tyler and Joey spent an afternoon decorating the driveway!
Plus I love to sit out there with them because this is my view from my front porch. Not too shabby.
Tyler checking out the waves.
After Tyler put on his wetsuit he said, "I feel like a spy! Like Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible." Lol.
On a side note, I saw this and just loved it and wanted to share...
A couple weeks before San Diego, Katie and her boys and I and the kids met up at the Provo Pool. The boys had fun jumping off the high platform and trying to catch the ball the others were throwing.
