Actually this is Mother's day eve. I finally figured out that because things are so hectic on The day of Mother's day, I don't quite enjoy it as much. This year we decided to have a celebration on M.D. eve. What a great idea and I hope we can make that a tradition!!! We had a nice little meal on the front deck. Arlin grilled salmon (my all time fav) Jesse made pina coladas (virgin of course) and we listened to my new favorite group on the stereo 'Mister Sister'. What a nice relaxing evening. You'll also note some of the flowers I got from my MAN!!!!
First we went to Anthon & Jennie's to await the birth of Bella!! How excited we were for her arrival.
We had a great time spending the week with Baylee & Boston as Jennie & Bella got detained a few extra days at the hospital.
We enjoyed playing clay dough, watching tricks on the trampoline, lots of walks where we got to see ducks AND some real foxes! I got to tag along when Tone signed Bay up for kindergarden. What fun that was. I got to see her class and meet her teacher. She's going to love Kindergarden. Dad, Tone, Jess, Bay and Bos got to go to a cool museuem, while Jennie and I got to take Bella to one of many blood test dr. appts. We cooked allot and ate allot, went to their ward conferance AND their stake conferance. We were taken care of very well by Bay & Bos, Thanks guys. We LOVE this family!!
Next we got to visit Nicole's family (really, this visit happened in the middle of visiting Anthon's family.
This was a short visit on account of the fact that we were in Utah to help w/ the new baby. We went out there on Mon. evening (with Bay and Bos in our care) and came back on Wednesday. ~a quickie~ But, we packed lots of fun into it as possible. Tuesday was 77 degrees outside and we stayed out there all day long. I got to take Kamdin in to school and took some pictures, see her w/ the class pet? The kids played on the yard toys, Logan and his daddy played T-ball, they even let other kids try it. Presley was as cute as ever AND I feel gyped I didn't get a picture of Sis, she's lookin so dang cute herself! We ate good food and Sis and I even got away by ourselves for several seconds!! We love this Family so much. Thanks for letting us visit guys!
Monday afternoon we said Goodbye to Tone's family and drove up to Ken & Nin's house. They were eagerly awaiting our arrival and we were so glad to see them! Lynsie had a yummy chicken soup ready for us. Aly showed up after we got there ~FUN~ she's pretty cute. Luke had lots to show grampa Arlo and liked keeping him occupied. Tues. we ate a yummy breakfast out and then drove to Idaho Falls after Ken got out of class. We spent allot of time looking at yarn cause Nin is crocheting like crazy for the Farmer's Market she's involved in. She makes hats and bracelets, i-pod cozzies and headbands. We also went to the mall and looked for shoes for Jesse Wayne. Then we went to visit Rohn at his work. That was really great cause this big kid comes driving up gets out of the car and it's Christopher all grown up. He was really cute with Luke taking him for a ride, helping him get in the tractors and trucks. Luke was in heaven!! When we got home Aly came back and we made the most delicious tacos w/ guacamole. YUMMY. We sure had fun seeing their cute place. Thanks for letting us stay in your bed Luke. We Love you guys very much.
Saturday morning Jesse flew in for a visit. HOORAY!! Grampa, me, Bay & Bos all got to go to the airport to pick him up. The kids were very excited to see him. Was he excited to see them???? _____ I think so. Kids just seem to love Jesse. After we picked him up we ate some lunch and then got home minutes before the arrival of baby Bella. Soon after that and when he made sure we could handle things Anthon took Jesse to Supercross. They had loads of fun but froze to death because it snowed ~outside stadium~ Sunday Jesse was helpful w/ the kids going to church, it was Stake Conferance and Bay and Bos would rather run in the gym than sit on a metal chair. (Jess is very understanding of that) Monday a.m. Jess, Dad, Tone, Bay & Bos went to a flight museum @ Hill Air Force Base. They all enjoyed looking at old planes and hearing the Vets tell stories..... well, all that is except for one little runner who would rather run than leisurely stroll through, look and listen!! Speaking of that little runner, notice the picture of him and Jess together, they look a little alike don't they? Bos seems to have Jesse's personality and stamina. YEAH!!!! We had a fun time up at Nin's, it was fun for Jess and Al to be together. They got some goofing off in and you'll notice Jesse giving Al a ride on Lynsie's bike. Funny!! Jesse's been on many a road trip w/ mom & dad he's well seasoned and helped make it enjoyable. He even took a turn reading to dad so he wouldn't fall asleep at the wheel. We love this guy! Thanks for accompanying us on this trip Jess!!
