LONG TIME!!!!!!!

It has been a really long time since I have blogged and there are quite a few reasons number 1 is I have not had a computer for quite a while Taylan spilled water on it and blew it up. And so now I feel like there is no excuses now except that I feel like I am crazy busy all of the time so I will just start with the summer because if i started where I left off this would be the longest post EVER! So my kids played T ball this year and some how I got talked in to being a coach it was pretty fun. This was Ryders first year playing and he loved it and was sad when it was over.

Ryder and Taylan also celebrated their 4th and 6th Birthdays it makes me so sad that they are getting so big but it is fun to see them grow up and experience new things.

Bret and I also celebrated our 10 year anniversary in Hawaii it was so much fun we loved it!! I for sure want to go back and visit every island.

We have also had some not so fun moments this summer Ryder had to get surgery on his neck it was super scary they removed 4 lymph nodes to biopsy but in the end it all turned out good and he is fine and healthy. He got put through a lot and was such a big boy about it. So I guess I will do a slide show of some things we have done since my last post and will try to update more frequently.

Where has it gone! I tried to think back to what we have. We went to California, seems like it was so long ago but that was in June. We went to Seven Peaks with my Family and had lots of fun, we went and stayed with my cousin Breezee we had lots of fun, we took the kids to Kawabunga Bay and ate good food. Taylan took swimming lessons and really liked them and did really good. She loved jumping off the diving board.

She is a pretty good swimmer now. But she should be, because we have gone swimming quite a bit we love the new Castle Dale pool.
The kids also rode there bikes in the parade and loved playing on the bouncy slides at the park.

We also have went camping a few times but not as much as we did last year. I hope we can still go a few more times before it gets too cold.
Me and my little sister Lacie went to Dancing under the Stars in Orem. Any of you guys that are fans of so you think you can dance know Brandon and Randi and Gev they all danced and were amazing, we had so much fun. They had dancers from center stage dance studio and they were so awesome.

This year for vacation we went to California. We had so much fun we went to sea world first and WE LOVED IT!!! especially Ryder he was so excited every show we went to he loved shamu, the dolphins, and the sharks. Taylan loved sitting in the splash zone so we were always wet. I could of stayed there everyday it was great. We then went to the beach it was Bret and the kids first time going there and they thought it was pretty neat. Bret body boarded and almost got ate by a shark(or a dolphin not sure) but it freaked him out a little. Taylan played in the freezing cold water and loved it. Ryder and I mostly played in the sand and found sea shells and it was not very warm but apparently you can still get sunburned because we all did but I received the worst of it. Then after that we headed to Disneyland it was fun except for waiting an hour and forty five minutes to meet the princesses Taylan loved it so I guess that it was worth it. Ryder was a whimp on most of the rides but he still liked it. Taylan favorite rides were space mountain and finding Nemo. My favorite by far was the tower of terror it was so fun. Taylan went to a dance clinic there. It was cute they taught them a fun little dance. Next we went to Knotts Berrry Farms where Taylan performed her dances that part was good but we later learned that they had bused fifty buses of junior high kids there it was so pack that we ended up leaving and going back to the motel to swim. Then we did the 10 hour drive home which was not to fun but after being gone eight days we were ready to be home. We had alot of fun so here is a slide show with some pictures. ENJOY! (sorry so long I had a hard time picking pictures).

Happy Birthday Ryder!!!!

On Monday it was Ryders 3rd Birthday. All that he wanted to do was go camping and ride the 4 wheeler. So we went and all it did was rain. We still had fun catching worms, and playing in the mud. We went with Gary and Stormees family and then my mom and Lacie came up for the day and then the next day Jared and Hollie and the boys came up and we rode 4 wheelers so it turned out to be a fun birthday despite the rain. He got a motocycle bike which he loves so much and is always heading to the motocycle races.

It is hard for me to believe that my baby is three. He is such a good boy and always gives us a good laugh we love him so much.
