Bear Lake with the Crew

Every year around Labor Day we head up to Bear Lake with our best friends from Michigan. I think it's amazing that we've managed to stay so close over the years. We just LOVE these guys! It's always a hoot being around them and I don't ever feel like I need to do situps because I'm constantly laughing at one of them. Between Lance's crazy games of "What would do if you had a million dollars? Wes's whitty humor. Every person has something amazing to offer. I'm just so happy that we're all friends. We may not live any where near each other, but when we get together time flies, diets are OUT the window and we are left we the best memories. We love you guys and can't wait for our next big adventure!

Corbin and Andre had so much fun! Corbin just followed him around the whole weekend. It was so cute. And Andre was such a great sport about it all.

This is how I like to vacation! Soakin' up the last of the summer sun!

Kendyl and Callista are the cutest little girls! They loved that horse and played barbies and watched Cinderella over and over and over and.....

Mandy and I had a ball on the tube. I was CERTAIN that Cob would throw us off, but he was a good husband and kept us on. We had a time trying to hold on. We'd hit big waves and would literally be flying and holding on for dear life. Neither one of us wanted to land in the cold water! :)

Lance took Corbin and Andre. The look on Corbin's face was priceless! He had a perma-grin the whole time...except when Lance tried to freak them out when he stood up! It was hilarious!


A little freaked out...

I even made it up!

Bettie was like a pro! I would have given up long before she did! She was a trooper!

But Mandy was the funniest! She got up every single time and even found time to POSE for the camera! :)

Look at those cute kids!! They've been trained to know exactly what to do in front of the camera!!

Coby loves to take pictures of people caught off guard! But this picture was so cute of Mandy, that I HAD to post it!

Check out this flip by Lance! He's a pro...just like his hot wife!

Wes made it look easy!

Look at the height! Ian cracked us all up the whole time. Every time he got in the water he would mimic sounds from the Family Guy! We missed Natalie, but hopefully Ian will tell her how much fun we all had and she and Tatem will come next time.

Our little chunky monkey

I just LOVE this little boy! He's getting so big! He likes to sleep alot....obviously!
He's three months now. THREE months? Where on earth has the time gone? I took him last month for his 2 month check up. HELLLLLOOOOO can we say CHUNKY MONKEY? He had gained nearly 5 pounds! At the time he weighed in at 12.13 pounds. I checked Jack's old stats and he was exactly 1 pound heavier. Jack was also almost a pound heavier when he was born and didn't lose weight in the hospital! Not surprising huh!! Anyway, he's the same height and head size as I may be making an appointment to get weekly massages he'll probably weigh as much as my neighors 18 month old any day now!! No complaints though, I LOVE chubby babies! Miss my chunkiest baby alot. But happy Corb and Jaders are here to fill my arms. Just love my boys! I never thought I'd be a mother of little boys, but couldn't be happier.

Like I said....he likes to sleep....

and so do we! We LOVE having him sleep on our chests. I don't want him to ever outgrow it, even though I know our days are numbered. We just moved him out of our room (reluctantly on my part) into his crib. It's been nice to have our special quiet time in the middle of the night feedings. I loved this time with Jack and am so glad that I got that special time with him. I find myself treasuring the 1 and 4 am feedings now. It's just a GREAT feeling! So you won't hear me complaining about the lack of sleep that I'm getting. I'm just grateful to be up with another little angel at night. I think Jack peeks in on us. Wish I could see him like he gets to see us. Maybe someday! :)

Amber comes in for a visit

I am so far behind on my blogging! There are LOTS of posts to come, but I'll space out the posts....see how well I'm doing so far!! Just kidding!

Amber came out for a LONG overdue visit at the end of August. It was so fun! We all want her to move out here. Corbin especially! He LOVES her to death! He had to run into the airport with my mom just to find her as soon as she landed because he just couldn't wait to play with her. He has designated his top bunk to "Aunt Ambie". She plays with him too! It's so cute to watch them together.

But the person I think she likes most is Coby. What started out a bit rocky...has turned into such a close relationship. Amber looks up to Coby as a big brother...I think she might even like him more than me....hmmmm....not sure how I feel about that! :) Just kidding! But he adores her too. He even said that she could even move in...if she'd only get her cute little butt out here! (**Disclaimer** "cute little butt" is from me....not Coby's words)

But the person I think would have really loved her to be here to play would have been Jackie! I can only imagine just how much fun they would have had playing. We'll all get our chance....Someday right Brittany?!! :) I am glad that she did get to know him. He loved her and I'm sure he's looking forward to playing with her....EVENTUALLY! :) So help me if that millennium doesn't hurry up....

Jack and Aunt Ambie

I am so glad that she got to meet little Jader Bug. They seem to really have bonded! Mostly, he like her to hold him....which I LOVED...and so did my shoulders! They got in a few naps together and I think she was in heaven! :) She's a great sister and cute little aunt. I'm sure happy my boys ...all of them just adore her! SO...get your cute little bum out here girl! :) We miss you
