Mya's Hula Mula photo shoot

While in Portland, we had enough time for Mya to do a photo shoot for my sister's Spring 2010 Catolog. They turned out sooooooo cute. For those of you who don't know, my sister is the owner of Knuckleheads Clothing. Check out her website...

Tyson's marathon

This last weekend Tyson ran in the Idaho Falls Scenic 10K marathon. The kids and I were there to support him. He's been training for marathons for a while now, and he just loves it. 2 weekends ago he ran in the Teton Dam Marathon, which was 14 miles (i missed this one since I was stuck in an airport, so i don't have any pictures). The kids loved seeing him run and waiting for him at the finish line....burr was it cold though...

After the marathon, we headed to the Rexburg Airshow. It was a lot of fun. This is just one of the planes there. The planes were doing CRAZY stunts in the air.

Trip to Georiga

I've had quite a whirl-wind of 2 weeks. I was determined to make "1 last trip" before the baby arrived, so my parents got me and the kids buddy passes to fly to georgia for a week. (NOTE: DO NOT FLY ON BUDDY PASSES IF YOU HAVE CHILDREN!!) Anyway.... we got to atlanta great and had so much fun. We swam almost every day, visited friends and cousins, went boating (which not do if you are 35 weeks pregnant!! ouch.....), and had a lot of fun with nanny and poppy. The kids were not ready to come back...and apparently, the airplanes didn't want us either.
We tried to leave thursday..couldn't get on a flight. Tried again on Friday, arriving at the airport at 8 :30 a.m. Tried again......and all the flights were full ,so went back to the house. Saturday...we go back. Brett was able to come with us (since he works for delta and can go through security), and thank goodness he did. We were there all day again trying to get on a flight. By 5:00, we were exausted and the kids had had enough. The flights to SlC didn't look good, so we finally just went to Portland hoping to get to SLC easier from there. NOPE! We spent 2 days there, and finally just had to buy tickets to come home. WHEW!!!! Very tireing. At different points of the days, Mya had thrown HUGE tandrums, i've burst into tears in front of everyone, and dealing with Nash only wanting to go into the boys restroom and not with me and Mya.

Overall, it was GREAT trip...but I am so thankful to be home.

While in Portland, we stayed with Melissa. Nash and Mya loved seeing their cousins again. Here they are at the park, playing ring-around-the-rosie.

Cousins: Mya, Brooklyn, Nash, Otto and Lily.

Mya loved to walk their dog Stretch around the park

Our last night in Atlanta, I took Nash night swimming. He thought it was the coolest thing ever!

yes.....nash is beginning to look like a little mexican again....we get asked all the time "if we have a different culture in us."

Stone Mountain

While in georiga, we met up with my sister-in-law Shanna and her kids at Stone Mountain. I haven't been for a few years, and had forgotten how much i love it. What it is, is a big mountain that is a rock, and carved on the side is 3 officers from the confederate war. And every night in the summer, a lazer show is put on. It's not just lights, but music with lazer pictures to go along with the songs. The songs are all American pride, or southern pride songs. Then there is always fireworks at the end. It was so muc h fun. The kids loved it.

This is Nico, Jakob, and Nash giving salute to the nation anthem. Thanks Nico for showing Nash flag pride!!

Here is Nash with Sofia and Ollie
