Wher has the Summer Gone

Do you ever feel like you are busy all the time
but not quite sure what you have been doing?

WE had a great summer with a few mishaps. ( Marley
getting her baby teeth pulled, and me crashing the
Van. But we are healthy and very blessed.
My kids are now in school and they both love it (until
Kaiya has to do her homework instead of Play!-AKA
social butterfly) I am just going to post some pictures of
our summer with some quotes!

Matt ran another ultra Marathon in Grand Targhee
We had so much fun! We rode up the chair lift, had
picnics, cheered our dad on, swam, played on bounce
toys, met new wonderful friends, and Kaiya and Taj
ran there first race up in the mountains through the
trees. They both got medals. bubble treats and other
Kaiya running through the trees

Taj running down the trail.

All the kids getting ready to start their fun run!!!!

Matt had enough energy after the race to give the kids
a ride in the wheel barrow. We are so proud of Matt
and his amazing accomplishments! Our Dad is a superhero!!!

My mom and dad came to cheer Matt on. We love them so much
and are so thankful for all they do for us. They helped lots with
the kids! Matt loved hearing my dad cheer for him as he passed
through the base station in between loops. My dad is the biggest
sports fan no matter what sport he is always there to support his

WE met fun friends. Truly kindred spirits Kaiya and Taj had so
much fun with cute Rivers and Everest. It was cute Taj and
Everest kept forgetting each others name. So they would say
hey where is my friend. I want to play with that friend.
We went to the children s muesuem with Jenny and her cute kids
when they were in town, and my friend Meagan came with us too
with her adorable abigale

Kaiya and Taj Firsts days of School!

Who needs a swimming pool when you have a cooler and a
Tupperware bin this is how Taj, Kaiya, Gage, Eden and Marley
kept cool this summer.

We went to the young family farm for lavender days. It was
so much fun lots to do! playground, tea parties, wagon rides,
pony rides, rock climbing, jousting, lavender ice cream and much

Had to post one of little bug who is getting big so fast she is
so much fun and the cutest thing ever!

Talk about craziness

Two days ago about 7:00 a.m Marley was heading up the stairs as usual. She has a fetish with stairs! As some of you know we have wicked wood stairs so every time Marley goes by them I take her away and put up the gate! This particular Morning Matt was right by her. Matt turned away for just a moment and Marley started to fall. She fell down three stairs when Daddy caught her but the damage had already been done. Blood was pouring out of her mouth. She just barley got her two bottom front teeth(the only teeth she has) they were knocked down into her gums and forward. Her gums have a big laceration. I called the doctor to bring her in. I gave Marley some Ibuprofen and left the bottle on the counter with the lid on! I went to go get dressed and came back out and saw marley playing with an empty bottle of Ibuprofen(which was more than half way full) I started to freak out! she didn't drink it cuz it would have been poured down the front of her and she would have smelled like grape medicine. Taj was over in the corner with a little smile on his face. ( about six months ago he drank 1/4 of a bottle of benedryl and we spent all day in the emergency room watching him cuz it could cause seizures and comas. so you can imagine I was so worried) he almost drank a whole bottle I was crying and told him he can't do that cuz I don't want him to die! Then he knew I was serious and that it was not so funny that mom was freaking out and crying and he started to frown( which is good cuz I want him to know this is serious stuff) I called poison control( great people who work there very caring!) He said ibuprofen is different than benedryl and that he would have had to drink 1 and 1/2 bottles for it to be toxic to his little body. ( He felt great all day nothing he did could hurt :) ) So I was relieved, but still had Marley to deal with. We ended up having to take her to a pediatric dentist and he said she has a 50/50 chance of keeping her teeth, but he felt like we would probably have to pull them. How sad! We go in a week to see if hopefully they have reattached to the gums if not, she will not have teeth there until she is 5 or 6! Marley as you know is so Happy and still is. This has not affected the way she is. She still is smiley and says Hi to everyone. She even started to walk yesterday! so cute Her is a clip of her first day of cruising around the house.

like the corner of my mind...

Here is a fun little game... leave a comment on my blog of a memory that you and I have had together. It doesn't matter if you've known me for a short time or a long time, anything that you remember! Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It is pretty funny to read the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you are playing and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. On your mark... get set... blog those memories

The Fourth of July

This post is a little late, it is almost the 24th of July. I just wanted
to express my feelings for our country. I am proud to be an
American and am so thankful for the brave men and women who
fight for us. I am so thankful for the freedoms that we have.
Matt had the day of work so we went to Matt Aunt and Uncles
property up in the Uintas for the day! It was absolutely beautiful.
We rode 4 wheelers, went kayaking in the pond, roasted
marshmallows, and visited with our family!

Thank You Debbie and Jessie! We had so much fun!!!!!!

Happy Birthday Little Bug

Time flies by. Marley is sooooo cute and fun I love this age!!!
here she is with her Lion she gives it kisses everyday!! It
plays music and she dances. She has the cutest moves!
Here she is with her butterfly cake! She did not like the way it
tasted but she loved to squish it between her fingers!

Marley loves cell phones !
she loves to open and close mine cuz it makes a noise and she
ruined matts by sucking on it so she got a baby cell phone for her
birthday and absolutely loves it! she puts it to her ear and says
hi! She is very perfective of her phone and of course taj likes
to take from her to hear her scream. Marley is so loving and
will give lots of kisses and even blow you one too! Happy
