Growing on Up, 2nd Edition

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015 in About Me

Cameron (like Abby last Christmas) received a card for a gift and inside the card it told her she was getting her ears pierced in 2 days. Which was such a relief to her because it was taking FOooooOooorever for her to turn 7 1/2! She did not want to wait until then so got […]

Christmas Day 2014

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015 in About Me

There is not much I remember about Christmas morning. Tyler two years in a row has put together the most creative, time consuming, and thoughtful gifts. I need to take pictures of the two gifts he has given me so I can share them. This year I tried to spoil him and he never acts […]

Things I Loved This Holiday Season

Thursday, January 1st, 2015 in About Me

Things I loved this holiday season, and that I didn’t love. This holiday season was a bit lonely, stressful, and we fought as a family during a couple of our favorite annual outings. And then we had a lot of great times. Our ward puts on the most beautiful, organized, beautifully thought out parties. This […]

Christmas Tree 2014

Thursday, January 1st, 2015 in About Me

We cut down, dragged home, and put up the Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving. In doing so I wiped out (meaning all fell down, crashed to pieces, I superglued) a wall of frames. Then the tree did not have time to be decorated until two days before Christmas. You have to pay attention to […]

Easiest Thanksgiving in History 2014

Thursday, January 1st, 2015 in About Me

Well, well, well. Who knew you could just go out to dinner for Thanksgiving. Did you all know you could do that? I think I might only want to cook once every 3 years and go out to eat the other years from here on out. This year we met Tyler at the Grand America, […]

Puerto Vallarta Day 5, Day Trip to Yelapa

Saturday, December 13th, 2014 in About Me, Our Travels Worldwide

This was the first vacation as a family that I did not organize and plan way in advance. I found time just one or two days before we left to do some investigating on what we should do on our trip. A lot of blogs, yelp reviews, etc. suggested a day trip to Yelapa. More […]

Puerto Vallarta Day 4, the rainy day

Saturday, November 29th, 2014 in About Me, Our Travels Worldwide

We had one day where we canceled plans because it rained for a good twelve hours. The girls everywhere we travel try to skinny dip in the pool in the rain. They say it is the coolest thing ever, and they are right! But you can’t do that for a full twelve hours. After the […]

Puerto Vallarta Day 3…the DOLPHIN DAY!

Saturday, November 29th, 2014 in About Me, Our Travels Worldwide

I kept this day secret from the girls. Which is good because we almost didn’t end up going. The taxis were all unavailable, the company we booked it with sent me some emails confirming it that actually confused us. The taxi driver took us to the wrong place. Then when we arrived they told me […]

Puerto Vallarta Day 2 & 3

Saturday, November 29th, 2014 in About Me, Our Travels Worldwide

On days we did not have planned excursions our formula went like this. Spend either the morning before nap time out and about or spend the late afternoon after nap time out an about. The rest of us when the babies were napping read or swam. Or whined about having nothing to do. On Saturday […]

Puerto Vallarta Day 1

Saturday, November 29th, 2014 in About Me, Our Travels Worldwide

Tyler, the girls, and I ran away to Puerto Vallarta for two weeks. And then wanted to run right back and ask someone to watch our children so we could go back alone. I kid! (sort of) Our sweet angels must have been possessed for part of the trip, totally not their fault. Maybe someone […]
