So I just realized I haven't posted for a little while so I just thought I would catch everyone up on what has been going on in our lives.

My sweet husband surprised me with a new bike so we can go on bike rides together now. It's a pink beach cruiser bike and if I say so myself it is pretty fantastic!

Josh went fishing for the first time in a long time with our brother in law Jared and he just cannot wait to go out again.

For those of you who have been following my sister's baby Zackary, he is doing so great! He is now almost up to a full 3 lbs. They are estimating he will only have to be in the NICU for 6 more weeks. He also has his own blog page that you can find a link on from my page. He is so sweet.

And last but not least we are getting ready to leave for a week and a half to go to Missouri to visit family and I cannot wait to go!! I desperately need a break and I can't wait to see family that we haven't seen for so long. They are so great!!

Well that is all for now. But I am sure when I come back from Missouri I will have much to blog about. Especially since we are driving.

I just wanted to say Happy 29th (again) Birthday to my wonderful mom!!! We sure love you!!

Weekend Recap

This past weekend we were pretty busy. Friday night my sister won some tickets for us on the radio to go to the Demolition Derby at the Fair. I had never been to a Demolition Derby before and I had such a great time. It's just like bumper cars in real life.
Then on Saturday my family went to Lava Hot Springs for the day. A lot of us had not been there before so we had a great time. We went to the natural hot springs, then to their big pool, then after that it was tubing down the river for us. That was my favorite part. Unfortunately, I did not get pictures of this part because I was too busy tubing. There has been talk of making this a yearly thing from now on.

I had to get the customary car picture on the way to Lava Hot Springs.
Cute little Marli just anxious to get into the water.
This was our group of girls that were there, aren't we so stunning??
Josh cannot take a "normal" picture to save his life. I sure love him and his HAIRY chest!!!
Then just before heading home, we stopped at a place called Fat Jack's for delicious burgers and fries.

We went to Lagoon for our work party yesterday. It was a perfect day to go it was overcast and only in the 80's. I am a little chicken when it comes to a lot of rides because I get motion sickness so this day was mostly for Josh. He had so much fun going on all the roller coasters. He did feel bad that I wasn't doing very much so he was determined to win me a prize from one of those game booths they have along the side. He chose to do a rope ladder type thing to win me a prize. He did it probably 5 times and he did it!! He won me a HUGE stuffed shark. It was super sweet. Needless to say, we had a fun day.
