Hailey's new favorite thing to do is to lay down on the floor next to Addy and play with her or kiss her. It's the cutest thing ever. The funny thing is, I thought Addy would hate it and cry, but instead, she loves it. She loves to watch her older sister run around and play. I tell ya, with multiple siblings, some days are REALLY hard, others are GREAT. Balancing two can be very challenging, but it's times like these that make it all worth it.

Just had to share

I just had to share this really funny picture I got of Hailey when we were at the Dinosaur Park in Las Vegas last week. She kept drinking the water that came out of this alligator and thought it was pretty cool till one moment, when I was ready to take a picture of her drinking, it decided to FLOOD her face with a TON of water. She wasn't expecting it and neither were we. It was pretty funny. We all had a good laugh over it. Even Hailey.

Some features include:
Hailey can drive it herself.
It's battery powered.
It fits two, comfortably.
I don't have to worry about Hailey getting hurt while driving.
It's economical.
What more could you ask for?

Cabin Fun

This past weekend, we had a family reunion in St. George. Some friends of ours let us stay at their cabin for the weekend. My brother Damon brought up some 4-wheelers and we had a blast. We spent so much time on those 4-wheelers. There was a water tower that we would ride up to and it had an amazing view once you got there and conquerred the hills leading to it. My mom and dad provided all the food and we had a ton of it. It was so yummy. Hailey had a blast chasing and watching all the bugs and insects. She even caught a grasshopper all by herself. It was amazing. Addysen just loved hanging out in her carseat outside with everyone and getting some fresh air. My mom and dad kept Addysen in their room with them so that Nate and I could get some good sleep. It was SO nice. Hailey didn't sleep as well as she usually does at home, but it wasn't too bad. Hailey also had to get use to her cousin, Lincoln. He's pretty intense for her. He is such a happy and excited boy. Damon, Summer, Nate and I all got in a crazy water fight. That was so much fun. We were all soaked. We also realized how out-of-shape we were. The boys found a gravel pit nearby where they went riding and got their jumps on! So much fun. My grandparents came out for a visit while we were there as well. Here are some pictures from the weekend.

Friday Flashback!

For our one year anniversary, we went to Cancun, Mexico. What a trip this was.

We stayed in a hotel called El Pueblito Hotel. It was quite adventurous. We woke up to Gecko Lizzardson the wall. It was crazy. They had Iguanas that could eat us! They were huge... and all over the place.

We went to Outback! Who wouldn't??? It was the best steak EVER!

Lots of great memories. One night, while riding the bus back to our hotel, we were serenaded by someone with a guitar which was quite entertaining. We were almost in MANY bus accidents.. they drive CRAZY down there, and we saw two accidents.

We went jet skiingand snorkling, swimming with sting raysand body boarding. It was a blast! We loved it.

We went to the Mayan Ruinswhich was AMAZING! Very sureal. Every time I look at these pictures, it makes me want to go back.

While on our excursion to the Mayan Ruins, we stopped at a Sink Hole.

It was FULL of catfish... and yes, we jumped in and swam with them. EWE!!!!

We did take a picture on a donkey! Yep.. it's true! My favorite is Nate's mustache!

Nate took this amazing picture from the airplane when we left.

10 Things You May Not Know About Me...

1. As a child, I: was obsessed with 'The Little Mermaid' and can still recite the whole movie.

2. If I had a million dollars I: would put most of it away in some investment, get caught up on some serious food storage, buy us all new wardrobes, go on a major shopping spree (i've always wanted to do that), get a SWEET minivan :-), and pay off all debt. Oh, and I might go on a really cool vacation. Oh yeah, and finish printing off all my scrapbook pages that have just been sitting on my hard drive!
3. My secret poison is: mint and chip ice cream with a little milk added. YUM!

4. If I had spare time I would: get caught up on scrapbooking, take a nap, read my book that's taking forever to read, finish decorating Hailey's room, get organized!
5. If I could live anywhere it would be: probably St. George. It's right in the middle of both of our parents AND we do have some family down there. Either that, or San Diego... go back to my roots! It's beautiful there, plus, I love the beach.

6. My morning usually goes like this: wake up at 5 or 6 with Addy, then go back to sleep for a half hour. Wake up with Hailey at 7. Make her breakfast, usually scrambelled eggs, then get Addy a bottle. Get them dressed and ready for the day and diapers changed so we can head out the door by a quarter to nine to get Nate to work. Then run errands before nap time!

7. I am so excited about: the fact that Prison Break and One Tree Hill are now back on!

8. A project i'm currently working on is: ORGANIZING MY HOUSE! We just turned a storage closet in Hailey's room into her little fort/play room! It's so cute!
9. If I could vacation anywhere, it would be: this one is tricky, cuz i'm not a fan of flying, but I would love to go to Italy, Greece and Fiji. Cabo sounds good too!

10. My secret crush is: I still have a crush on Nate. :-) and definitely my girls.

And now I tag: Jessie, Megan, Kristi, Jessica, Claire
