check this out...

I got the the liberty of doing a family photo shoot this weekend. It was so fun, and well it was for my Aunt Cori. Part of the pics, I told her to have my cousin bring his suit and we would do some mission pics. Well as I was editing the pics, I got to his one and just got creative! I think the picture turned out freaking sweet!

What I did for Father's day

So I know I am totally a week off but, oh well, I still think this derserves posting. I had this idea in my head for what I wanted to do for my husband for fathers day and well when I was taking the picture of the kids for it, the one shot I thought I wanted wasn't turning out, so I didn't a little different and well, I think it turned out way better. So here it is. ENJOY!

Crazy week...

So we went to Malad for Father's Day weekend and I swear once we got home, life has just seemed crazy! I will post later the coolest father's day gift I did for Chris. I think its worth showing so I promise I will get it up.

But I just had to put this down, to top our week off, we took the kids to Roaring Springs yesterday to let them blow off some mid afternoon energy. I never thought that I would be walking out of the park so much more greatful for my kids. Neilsen decided he wanted to go down the kiddy slides by himself, mr. Independent, well, Natali was still sleeping in the stroller so I was standing guard watching him walk up and keeping my eye on Chris and Traci waiting for him to go down the slide. I look up to find Neilsen for one second, and the next few seconds became the scariest seconds of my life. I look back to Chris in the water only to see Traci floating face down in the water! I have nevered screamed so loud and with that tone before in my life. Chris turned to his side and instantly saw what I was screaming for. Luckliy for us, he got her and right before she stopped breathing. The poor girl took in to much water, but luckliy she is alright. But what just ticks me off is the life guard just stood there the whole time and just watched! He didn't say anything at all! You can sure bet that I turned his name in!

I am so glad that Traci is alright, and she still, for some reason, went back and played in the water.
What a way to end a crazy week. I sure hope I don't have to feel like that again for a long time!

A trip down Memory Lane...

After a fun filled day of Chucky Cheese, snow cones and monster trucks...I can't believe that my little man is 3 years old. I swear he grew up over night. All weekend long he knew that we were celebrating his birthday. He kept his own count down and would always ask me to remind him of how many more days til he got to go to Chucky Cheese with Nanna and Pappa. He was so concerend about party hats that I took him shopping for them on Thursday just so that we would know that I hadn't forgotten. Who would think that my little 3 year old would be like that. It is just crazy to think that just 3 years ago we had the start of our little family. He came into this world and with just one tiny grip from his hand, it changed my world forever. Neilsen at his 1st birthday.

Neilsen at his 2nd birthday...
