Off to Pittsburgh!

Well the day has finally come, the kids and I are finally going to PA. I have to admit I am nervous about geting there, I hate planes and traveling in general but to have to do it by myself with 2 little babes is going to be hard, but I know I will make it. I probably won't be posting as much since we won't have a computer but I will try to when the computer is available in the office. The first thing I have to do is buy a camera, can you imagine going site seeing and not having one????!! So that is my goal this weekend. I don't know what to expect when I get there or what it is going to be like without the help of my family ( I have been spoiled) but it is an adventure and I can't wait to tell you all about it;) LOVES!

4 years and 2 kids later

Today is mine and Deryck's 4 year anniversary...... Time sure does fly! I can't believe how much can happen in just 4 years, we have two beautiful babies, Grant who is almost 2 and Evyn who is a month old TODAY! But it seems like just yesterday that we became parents for the first time;) Although we are thousands of miles apart on our anniversary and have been for the past 2 months it seems like he has never left my side, even though he is super busy everyday and can barely find time to fix himself a meal, he always makes it a point to call every evening no matter how late or how tired he is to check up on us and make sure we are doing well and tell the kids that he loves them and to "kiss" them goodnite. I speak for both of us when I say it has been a wild rollercoaster of a ride to get where we are today and we have a lifetime to go to get where we want to be and an eternity to enjoy! Deryck and I met almost 9 years ago in high school and he has been my best friend ever since and has given me two of the most precious gifts in the entire world. It's amazing what can happen when two people fall in love. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY BABE!

Grant's 1st date

They grow up so fast! haha! Grant went on a "date" with Tanna (Anton's girlfriend) Tanna offered to take Grant to Park Discovery and they had a blast. Tanna use to be a nanny for two kids in Las Vegas but she moved back to Cedar and she is missing her "rugrats" as she calls them. So she wanted to spend the day with Grant, and of course it was an offer a mom couldn't refuse;) Tanna said Grant did run into a few "bullies" when he tried to play with another kids squirt gun he was asked very sternly by the kid "to Put that back where it came from";) Grant politely gave it back, then he kept telling Tanna "silly kids" he loved his day date with Tanna, Anton better watch out or he might lose his girl to Grant lol! Thanks Tanna !

Pool Time

So even though the wind today was out of control! We decided that it was still warm enough to go swimming in Nana's pool. Grant has been waiting all week for the pool to be ready so we could not tell him no anymore and we all gave in and put our swim suits on and braved the wild wind. The water was actually not that bad so we were able to enjoy the overcast sun;) and swim for at least an hour.

Farewell, and yummy messy fun

Last Thursday we took a trip to St. George for a farewell dinner for Doug and Nance, Doug got a great job offer in Santa Barbara CA, so they were moving that weekend. It is a strange feeling having your family spread all over the place when you have had them all very close for a long time, With Pennie in Colorado and Doug and Nance in CA. and us leaving for PA soon, it is going to be hard for us all but it will deffinately make for some good visits for the kids in the future. I just want to say how much we love and appreciate Doug and Nan for all they have done for us and for all their love and support, we will miss having them close by.

Today Evyn had two doctors appointments and between the feedings and diaper changes and all that I needed to spend some quality time with Grant, so after putting Evyn down for a nap that is just what we did. Since Grant is in the stage where he loves getting into everything and making messes I thought it would be a good Idea to decorate a cake and let him have free range of the frosting, as you can see by the pictures he frosted his head instead:) He has also just learned how to sing happy birthday so he loved the Idea of making a cake just so that he could sing the song, plus we got to have our cake and eat it too! it was so much fun and it was so nice to not say NO to making a mess. LOVE YOU GRANTMAN!
