Can't belive they are taking them so young!

Yup, they let this in to the Boy Scouts!! I know he is way to young right?!?!

Not only that, but they took him on a over nighter...way to young for that right?!?!

But luckly Cory is one of the 11 year old leaders so he went with him...I was really glad Cory is a Scout leader, it made it not quite so unbearable to let me sweet little baby boy....oh handsome, nearly 11year old son go! Don't they look handsome in their uniforms?

Hope you all had a fun 4th! I know we did!!

Happy Dads Day!

To my hot hubby.....your the best!!! I love you!! I am so glad that I got to make you a dad, that you love to wrestle, except at bed time...and that your kids adore you!

My dad....I love you! Thanks for not putting me out on the curb during my teenage years, daddisms (close the door, you raised in a barn, bus leaves in 5 minutes, floor sweepings, arms and legs painted on...I could go on and on!) , not murdering Cory and being the best papa!

My brother, Levi...or as I call him, Gavin Sr! You are an awesome dad, a great uncle and the best brother!!! Thanks for making me an aunt!

And my brother in law Johnny! You rock! Thanks for being a 'puter genius, IMing me at work when I am bored and letting me whine....oh and that adorable little guy...who looks nothing like you, by the way!! Miss you all!

Thank  you all for being such good examples to my boys on how to be a great dad, a good man and for just being there!! Now go grill something!

Escape 2010

Every year we get to go up to Park City curtesoy of Cory's parents. They have a time share at the Marriott MountainSide Resort.

This year we spent three fun and relaxing days. And even though this

is the scene we woke up to Monday morning, it didn't stop the kids from diving into the pool!

Well at least the nice warm hot tubs.

I take this picture every year

of the three kids posed on the rocks. I will try and dig up the first one I took for a little side by side comparison.

What a fun way this was to start off the summer vacations!

Too Cute not to share

For my mom's upcoming 50th, er, I mean...29th birthday we threw here a suprise party. During the party we had several people roast her (I know we are so MEAN!) Some how I managed to talk Gunner and Gaving in to taking a turn. And here is there "performance" which was pretty funny actually!

What girs not what boys would...

This past Saturday gave Cory and I the opportunity to have a little fun with the kids. First Taya and I had a Fancy Nancy Tea party at her school. If you have not seen the Fancy Nancy books, they are ADORABLE! Taya loves them, not as much as Junie B Jones, but still quite a bit. So we dressed in our finest, Sparklest outfits

and went and enjoyed a really fun afternoon learning about manners from some "special guests"

eating some delicious crudette

and making bracelets

It was a very fun little party! We even got a sweet little flower planted all fancy in a little teacup.

Then that night the boys got their turn. Cory, Gunner and Gavin went with his brothers, dad and nephew to Super Cross at Rice Eccles stadium. They did not get home until 11:30 by which point the boys were tired and very cold.

So when I asked if it was fun, they only growled at me. But the next morning they had recovered and said even though it rained, then snowed, then hailed it was still pretty cool!

How do I love thee...

A couple of weeks ago Cory and I celebrated out 13 year anniversary. We went to the Anniversary Inn were my awesome brother in law, Johnny, got us a great deal on a room (he is their computer guru). We got the early enough we got to tour all of the rooms available. We ended up staying in the Presidential Suite, mostly because it had a balcony and an awesome view of down town SLC.

We had a great time! It has been so long since we have been anywhere overnight without the it was nice to have Cory all to myself!

I love you babe! Here's to many, many more!!
