Day Camp

We had Day camp earlier in June.  The Second week of school being out.  It was fun to just go and spend the day with Seth and his age group.  We have some great boys in there right now.  Not that all the boys haven't been great.  It's just that this group are a little more obedient than past groups.  Here's a few of the pictures of all the fun we had.

It was great to spend the day with Seth, I wasn't feeling too yucky as long as I kept eating granola bars.  It's amazing how you don't feel quite as yucky when you don't have time to think about it. (I'm not saying you don't feel it at all, just not quite as bad).  Hopefully this will be my last day camp!  If so it was a great one!

Park City

The first in June we decided to take the kids up to Park City for a little get away.  The rates are so low since it's after ski season but before the summer season hits.  We had such a great time.  I wasn't feeling too hot on the last day but really all in all we had such a great time just getting away and being together as a family.  One of the things we did was go to the Olympic Park.  We had never been there before and the kids loved every minute of it.
All the kids had to have their picture taken with the cut out skier.  Fun thing is that someday, probably sooner than later my boys are going to look like this going down the mountain.  Sad thing is I will probably never see it since skiing scares the bajiebies out of me.
The kids loved seeing these but the funner part was watching the skiers doing tricks into the pool.  I would post those videos but I'm just grateful it's accepting these pictures and allowing me to post them, I'm not going to tempt fate by trying to post a video yet.
Another favorite part was going swimming in the motel pool.  We spent half the afternoon out swimming and had a great time
On the way home we stopped at this hill  veterans memorial in Midway.  The kids had fun taking lots of pictures.  By this time I was feeling a little doozy so I really didn't care what they were doing.
Steve decided to really send me over the top and took us on the dirt road over to Cascade Springs.  It was nice to get out and walk around for a bit, to keep my breakfast in my tummy.  It really is so beautiful up there.  There was even one part where there were hundreds of little butterflies.  The kids thought that was pretty cool.
I don't know why I'm such a sucker for pictures like this but I am, probably because it's a good representation on how much I love these two and what an amazing dad Steve is to our kids.

I've been trying to come back

I know I haven't posted in quite some time.  But a few things have happened since then.  Biggest thing:  We got pregnant and I've felt like CRAP!  Sorry, I've always hated that word but seem to be using it more and more lately, probably because that's how I feel!

We have done things over the summer but for the most part I haven't felt well.  We found out over Memorial weekend that we were expecting and since then I have had no energy or desire to do much of anything.  I forced myself to get the kids out of the house over the summer by purchasing a pool pass, because by darn if I'm going to spend money on something I am going to take full advantage of it.  It did help to get out of the house.

But we have had so much fun and done so many things that now I want to document all of it but now I am way behind on this whole blog thing.  I tried to start downloading pictures the second week the kids were back in school and guess what something is up with my computer and I haven't been able to upload anything to blogher or email or ksl or anything.  It's so frustrating especially since that is what I want on this blog is all the scrapbooking memories that I will never put into a scrapbook.  So I will try to continue to figure this whole computer thing out, but am tempted to just go buy a new computer and get a new internet service, since I don't care for the one I have right now, we'll see what happens.  But I really have to get on top of all this before this new baby comes in Jan and I will want to post cute pictures of HER.  Well we'll try to do more later I'm trying as I write to download pictures we'll see if it works.  Here's to hoping!
