K wow it has been ages since I have posted on here. I am not even going to try and play catch up, or if I do I will do it later because it is to much to process right now LOL!! Just know that our family is doing good and that I will be trying to be better about blogging from now on. Don't hold me to that though. I am a busy lady.....LOL!!
Haven't updated in a while. I am not even sure that anyone reads this, but I guess its more for me than anyone else anyway. Jordyn was just getting over the flu and I could totally tell she was feeling better because of this lovely little video she made :)
I took the kids to cornbellys for the last day of their fall break. They had a blast. They went down the zip line, climbed the rock wall, rode the bull, shot some corn out of a gun, did the maze and soooooo many other things as well. They really enjoyed themselves and so did I. They are growing up so fast that I am cherishing every moment that I get to spend with them. :) Here are some pics of some of the fun we had!
Dusty took his vacation this past week and this week so we have been trying to squeeze in some fun family activities. We went up A.F. canyon to go hike up to Silver Lake, but the trail was closed :( On our way back down we saw this trail and decided to try it out. It was a really beautiful and nice trail. We got to see some really pretty country :) It got to a point where it was really hot and no shade and kinda steep up hill, so we turned around, but I would love to go further on this hike. I guess it goes all the way over to Alpine if you follow it all the way. We enjoyed it and the kids had some fun too!
Our fearless leader :)

We went on our first camping trip for this year in August. We usually go a lot more than that, but this year has been kinda weird. We went to payson lakes so we would have water to play in and I remember going there as a kid and having a blast. It was fun. The lake was super low though, which made it kinda lame, but we did go hiking and stuff, so it was still a really fun time. We went on a small hike to the Grotto one day for the kids, and they really liked it. Then we went on another hike that was a real nice long hike called loafer mountain. It was a great time to get out of the house and be in nature. Loved it!!! Hopefully next year we will go camping a lot more :)
The kids excited to camp!

The best part of camping.....SMORES!!!

Me testing out my hammock kim got me for my bday! This is the first time I got to use it.
Ryan and Jordyn started school on Aug. 21. They were both pretty excited to go this year. Mostly because they missed their friends that they only see in school. I had a hard time with Jordyn this year :( She is becoming miss independent and it makes me sad. She wants to wear what she wants to wear and pick out how her hair is gonna be that day and everything. My baby isn't a baby anymore :( I know our kids have to grow up, but I'm not gonna say that I like it! Anyway, the kids are excited for school and so am I. I get to get back to a routine and have my 6 hours a day to myself to get things done without having to worry about the kids. Ahhhh gotta love when school start :)
I cannot believe it has been since April that I posted! Life has just been crazy busy i guess. Well I started my externship at the Gastroenterology (say that 5 times fast!) department and I really like it. My house has paid the price with me working full time, but I at least wanna finish my degree. Whether I use it or not is still up in the air, but I HAVE to finish. This past weekend my moms family all got together, some traveling as far as from California. It was great to get together for something fun, and not for something sad. We all had a blast. I miss them all so much. I hope this becomes a yearly thing. The kids are out of school and just enjoying their summer. My nephew came down for 2 weeks to stay with us and we went to Lagoon twice while he was here. It was bounce back, so we had to take advantage of $11 tickets! Jordyn was fearless while we were there and it scared me to death. I guess I will just always think of her as my little baby girl. With me working, the week is pretty boring for them, but we are trying to make the weekends more family time since we basically never see each other much during the week. :( My weight loss has unfortunately suffered during my externship. :( :( I get home and I just don't wanna exercise. My eating isn't helping much either. I am trying to get back to being good. I definitely do not want my weightloss to suffer because of a job. That is one of the reasons I may not work once I am done with my externship. Some may call that selfish, but sometimes you have to be that way. I have done to much to lose my momentum. Me and Dusty have discussed it and he agrees. My health is more important than any money I could ever make. We are fortunate enough to not have to have me work as well. Dusty is a very good provider, husband and daddy. I love him so much!!! I would post pictures, but there are to many to do that LOL! If you wanna see them, look on facebook (it is sad, but true!) :)
Well hopefully I can post more often and maybe have some proof through pictures :)
