New Adventures Coming

So... blogs are supposed to be places where you can share your thoughts.  well that is what I think anyway.  I can write things down and know that some people are reading them but not a lot because I am not very popular on here.  LOL.  anyway.  there are a lot of things happening in life right now.  Lots of not so great things.  first off My children and I are moving to St George.  which is 35 miles from our current town.  THe hubby is not coming with us.  that means he is finding a place for him here in Mesquite.  I guess it is like a self discovery for him but I am not sure.  Recently he (and I)  have decided that we need to seperate.  This is because we have had a few things in our early lives that his brain just can't let go and I can't live with him thinking I am being unfaithful to him.  We yell at each other a lot and that is not a good place to raise children.  It is best for the kids that we seperate and they live with me and visit dad.  face it I would DIE without my kiddos!  It is going to be hard enough when he has them on the weekends.  I am open to us getting back together but things need to change in both of us to be able to live together again.  So after 6 years and marriage and 7 years of being together we have decided to split.  not divorce just yet, cuz face it, that is expensive.  For now we will live in seperate places and go from there.  HE will always be in my life and I in his.  Our children deserve to have a mother and father in thier lives.  SO this page will continue to be the family page where I post things about the families lives.  I will change a few pictures around and create a more me and kids space but feel free to read older posts if you wish.  SO there you have it.  I am sad, and discouraged by the situation I have at hand but new adventures are coming and I am focused on make a good life for the kiddos.  SO until next time

June Adventures 2012

Alright I know this is very late or it could be early.  Since June is not over I am going to go with Early.  HAHA.  Just because I can.  Anyway.  I thought that since I am failing on updating this every week I would do a monthly update.  and if I do some inbetween well then Fantastic!  SO here we go.

The beginning of the month Adam was finishing up school and we had a bunch of fun.  Actually June 1st was his FIELD DAY!  if you don't know or don't remember these they are the day that you just have FUN!  I went with him to school and the entire school walked to the Bunkerville park (about 8 blocks from the school)  There the 5th graders had set up some activities all that involved water!  Which is Good because it was like 100 degrees.  We went through the stations and then after being there from 9:30 until 11:30  we went back to the school where the Principal had the fire truck Parked by the back field and was spraying the water in the air and the students and teachers were able to run through the water!  (SOOO FUN!!!)  The principal is on the volunteer fire crew in Bunkerville.  Incase you wanted to know.  So anyway after that it was lunch time and the kids changed clothes and then watched A movie.  I left before the movie.  I picked Adam up because him and Kyle had dentist appointments that afternoon. 

EXCITING way to start the month.  The rest of the school year was full of fun.  First and awards assembly where Adam go the Good Kid award and he passed Kindergarten!   Then the last day of school there was an assemble where the teachers performed for the students and it was a blast!   Adam loves school and misses his teacher and his friends everyday!  

Coloring in the car on the 8th
So school ended on the 7th and we were leaving for Idaho on the 8th.  THe plan was to leave early in the morning but that didn't happen so we got out of Mesquite around 7:45. The long drive began with breakfast at McDonald's and in no time we were stopping so little people could go potty.  Well Kyle was afraid of the potties at the rest area and at the gas station we stopped at.  It finally came down to him having to go so bad that we pulled over on the side of the freeway opened both doors and then Kyle peed inbetween them.  He was so happy!  So for the rest of the trip to Idaho Kyle had to go outside.  Not my ideal but hey he was not peeing in his pants.  Once we go to my Sister's (Lena) house Kyle decided it was not too bad to use the bathroom there, but only her bathroom that is a 1/2 bath.  No big deal.  We had a yummy spaghetti dinner and then sat at talked for a while before taking the kids on a quick drive to settle them down to they would sleep. 

Such a good traveler June 8th
THe next morning we had breakfast, eggs, toast, and bacon.  just your normal yummy food.  then we took off on our rounds to see people.  The first stop was to Mr. Dee's grave cite.  Where Mom and I cried a bit and said hello to this dear old friend.  (Whom cancer took from us on Valentine's day of 2010).  We left there and made our way to Burley to visit my dad's grave cite.  I have to say it does get easier to visit him without breaking into tears until I think about how much I miss him.  He was taken away from us far too early.  But I still cried.  I also decided that we need to try and get someone to engrave his dates on his headstone (since they are missing due to Patti.)  I still need to call about that.  (note to self)   

Cartoons at Grandpa's
Relaxing at Grandpa's
After our tearful visits we got gas and headed to Twin to visit Jim and then on to Buhl to swim with my sister.  We had lunch with Jim and IHOP and the kids loved watching cartoons at Grandpa's house.  THen swiming and finally to drop off te scooter.  (the whole reason we went to Idaho)  After that we drove back to the middle of no where to Anjie's house and then on to McDonald's for food. 

The all loved the cartoon time
Finally back to Paul to find Lena at the grocery store and Mike installing a new garage door.  Once everyone was settled in bed I talked to Lena and then finally went to bed myself. 

ON Sunday Jamie and Sheri came over to visit for a bit and then we all had places to be.  We drove back to Anjie's house to visit a little more and then headed back to Heyburn to have dinner with Jamie and visit before we headed out to Salt Lake City.  We had pizza and hte kids ran in the backyard for a bit while we all chatted and then off we went.  We made it to Ogden before we were all too tired to stay in the car.  So we got a hotel and snuggled down for the night.

My favorite from the zoo June 2012

On Monday, we drove into Salt Lake, got lost a little, and went to the zoo.  Man it was fun!  they have a new area that has otters, sea lions, harbor seal, polar bear and girzzly bears.  the kids loved the monkies, and the bears.  After walking the whole zoo we rode the train and then got some food.  Finally about 3 hours later we were in the car and on the way home.  Stopped for gas and then finally made it home around 7pm.    It was so much fun and great to see my family.  I can't wait to go back again!

We celebrated Father's day by Jaymes going golfing with Ian on Saturday and then on Sunday I made chicken fettichini alfredo, salad, garlic bread and peanut butter chocolate chip cookies.

Happy Father's Day!

We had Ian over for a week and it was way fun. 

Honestly the rest of the month has been kind of uneventful.  Well On the 15th my mom came down and watched the kiddos while Jaymes, me, Mike and Michele went and saw the Spazmatics in concert.  We have been taking the kids to the splashpad a lot and just watching movies at home. 

This last weekend Me, Michele, and Glady went to the Club Envy Grand Opening and it was way fun!  we got a little too drunk but still we all had a great time.  Today June 27th.  I took the kids to the slashpad with my mom since she was intown because of having a dr appointment in St. George.  The rest of the month is not going to be very exciting just hanging out at home and maybe another trip to the splashpad.  Who knows.  Next week starts a new month and lots of exciting things to come along with it.  Well I hope you enjoyed this update.  Until next time

In love!

Something on my mind.

OK.  So Jaymes and I have talked about kiddos.  for Some reason we have both thought that we would like to have one more child.  BUT when?  if we wait until I am done with school it will be 2 years away.  then if we wait until I wait until after I have settled into my career it will be about 5 years.  do I really want to get Lydia in school and have a baby?  NO!   I have always thought that Lydia will be our last child.  BUt now I am still not sure.  If we were to have another baby it would have to be next summer. SO getting preggers in Sept. or October.  HMMM.  I want another little bundle to cuddle but I think I will just use the money that another baby would cost to let my kiddos do fun things,  Dance, Karate, Soccer, Baseball.  Those types of things.  So what does everyone think?  Yea I know I am only 26 and have lots of baby years left.  But sadly I think I am done.  I want to enjoy my kiddos as they get bigger and have the money to let them do fun things.  SO the verdict is I think we are done.  3 is a good number and Lydia will always be my baby.  My friends will have have babies and I am cuddle and them and then send them home. OK.  THat is what I am thinking.  if anyone has opinions I am open to them. 

Until Next Time! 

Live Laugh Love

Time sure is flying!

it is just amazing how fast time is going.  It seems like yesterday I was pregnant with my little man Adam.  But here we are 6.5 years later and he is growing up so fast and so big.  Kyle man is 4 and likes things his way.  Miss Lydia just turned 2 and she knows she is the princess of this house.  There has been so much happening lately that I have not found time to post on this here blog-o.  BUt I am now feeling like I have my schedule under control and I will be able to keep up with the fast pace of our lives.  This past month I have been home, cleaning and hanging out with my kiddos.  I miss Adam during the day and I am excited to say that he will be done with school in 2 days.  but then I have the WHOLE summer to find things to do with him.  WOW..I am the mom of a first grader. 
    We have not really done too much since Adam is still in school.  BUt we have lots of fun things planned and I hope to document them at least at the end of each week.  I hope.  Well this is just an update.  Today we are cleaning the garage.  I think I will take pictures because this is going to be a HUGE task.

Sucky! On my part!

So yea I SUCK!   I was supposed to keep this up everyday.  But we all see how that has worked.  GeeZ!!!   So here I am coming to the end of the Semester and I realize that I have been AWAY from this here blog.  I fail!   Oh well.  Really it is because LIFE got in the way!  homework sucked the life out of me and every waking minute I was not doing homework I was hanging out with the kiddos, and doing housework.  I did do some fun things along the way.  My facebook shows that.  But mostly homework and family time have taken the front burner.  and this here blog has taken the back.  So I WILL keep up on here as soon as the semester is over and our summer adventures will be posted.  Maybe not everyday but at least once a week.  I know.  HEARD THAT BEFORE!   Well since there are only 7 of you that follow me.  And you all follow me on Facebook.  you know how busy my life is.  WOW I need more people to read my blog.  LOL.  anyway.  I will say we got family photos this year and it is great to have new photos of my kiddos and family. 

Anyway.  Adam is doing GREAT in school, and Kyle is potty trained!   Those are accomplishments I have made so far this year.  Lydia is talking a lot and she loves to sing and dance. Alright up to date I think. 

I will post some pictures and then I will promise to post at least once a week.  From here on out!!   It is important to me so I will do it. 

I have a new BEST FRIEND and we have such fun together!   Can't wait to share photos of our adventures too!  Happy day.  And coming up these next few weeks we have FUN planned.   Anniversary next Saturday!   Then Kyle's 4th birthday the following Saturday.  Jaymes's birthday is the Monday before Mother's day.  then the 26th Miss Lydia will be 2.  So expect some awesome fun posts!   Here's to you on this gloomy, cold, April day in the Desert.  Enjoy your day and until next time

Today Daddy had to go to work so he left while Mommy and the kiddos were still sleeping.  We got up around 930.  Which is AWESOME!   We had pancakes for breakfast and then spent the day once again with each other.  Ian came over for the 3rd day in a row and you kids had such fun playing and laughing about just about everything.  We had a yummy dinner.  Pork, fried potatoes and corn.  YUUUUMMMM.  then bathtime and an early bedtime because school for Adam begins on 1.3.12   Today was a great day!  Just hanging out and getting prepared for the coming adventure of school.


Ok so I am starting this 3 days late.  oh well I am playing catch up once again.  I will be trying to make sure I get this done DAILY!  I know crazy with my life but I am going to try my hardest.  Ok so on January 1, 2012 we spent the day at home napping and enjoying each other's company. 

We got up around 9:30 and had breakfast.  Then Mommy was feeling a little crumby so naps were a happy get away from the daily cleaning.  Mommy did clean the house up from the night before's festivities.  But mostly the day was spent relaxing.  Such a wonderful way to spend the 1st day of the new year.
