first day of school

 mickeys first day of 1st grade, it has been a couple of weeks, but better late then never?
 he let me take two pictures of him that look exactly the same.
              Dahlia on the other hand, loved the picture taking and couldn't get enough, check her out!

donut falls hike

 We hiked donut falls with about 500 ohter people on the 24th of july, it was hot but for the most part we had fun, the kids favorite part was when we stopped for our snacks and they got to watch the squirrels in the trees.  poor jason had a hurt back and a sprained wrist, so we didnt dare take the kids across and up the water to the actual donut of the falls, maybe next time.

throwing rocks in the water

Mickey carried the little camera that has a pink case, kind of looks like a pink purse haha

dahlia with her hiking stick, mickey didnt want me to take anymore pictures, he was in kind of a bad mood

camping trip

Have you noticed how plans have a way of changing themselves?  As it happened to us this past weekend, sleeping in our sardine can of a tent, we couldn't help but be reminded of another big plan we had as newlyweds.  As we looked at our little sardines, in their silent, still slumber, we couldn't help but be thankful that our plans had been changed.
       When we bought our "4 man tent"  it was just the two of us, we had only been married a few months and figured it would last us at least ten years, because we weren't going to have any children for five years.  Here we are 8 years later with TWO children who were both born before we had been married for five years.  Wow, were we off!  A four man tent is not really comfortably big enough for four men, because it isn't comfortable for a family of four with two SMALL children!
                                                I took a nap to catch up on sleep lost
                                                             my fisherman is so hot!

       We were going to go camping to fish lake for a day or two then head down to zions and then stay in a hotel in  St. George.   We did go camping in fish lake for a couple of nights, but then we decided St. George would be way TOO HOT!  so instead we came back up to Salt Lake and stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in west valley.  You can see it from the freeway it is the one with the big red slide that starts inside, goes outside, then back in.  turns out there is a little water park in the hotel.   The kids LOVED it and we had a little stay-cation.  we went to the movie and saw Zoo keeper, and went to the mall where we built-a-bear and picked out our own window stickers for each of our car windows.

my new life needs help

Oh how I miss my simple life in Hyrum.   I miss being able to choose if I want to be lazy or busy.   Now I am always busy and when I am not I almost always choose to be lazy.  Its kind of like I have so many things I could or should be doing that I get overwhelmed and so nothing I enjoy doing gets done :(  So I need to find ways to make more time I guess, get more organized.  if anyone has suggestions that work for you.  also on how to prioritize because everything seems so important to me.  that is all.
