Ty's Birthday!! "14"!!

Well, my boy is 14!! Seems like just the other day he was coming up to me with his binkie and blankie saying, "Mama hold you." Where does the time go...
It was a fun day...he has wanted this "BLITZ" RC car forever...that's ALL we've heard about for months! He wasn't quite sure if he was getting it or just getting money to put towards it so, as you can see, he was very happy! (The look on his face when he opened it is priceless!) LOVE getting them what they want!! :o) Fun times! HAPPY BIRTHDAY BUD! Love you tons!

Spring Break 2010

The boys and I decided to take a San Diego trip this year during Spring Break...and we are sooooooooooooooo glad we did!! We had the best time! We spent time in Vegas...went to the Hard Rock Cafe for lunch and toured the M&M Store. We had the prettiest hotel in San Diego...rose garden and fountains right outside our door. (The opossum that showed up nightly kind of freaked me out though!) We had never been to Sea World before and seeing the whales up close was amazing! After that we went to Coronado Island which was a lot of fun. We had a yummy BBQ lunch, shopped around, walked the pier, etc. Driving across that bridge was a little scary for me, but it was fun. We did some shopping at the outdoor mall by our hotel. The boys really liked that actually, especially at night. The next day we spent at La Holla Beach and LOVED it!! The boys liked that better than Sea World for sure. We spent a couple hours walking over rocks finding crabs...hundreds of crabs!! Then we walked just a ways further to the sandy part of the beach and just played ALL day! The weather was so nice just really was a perfect day for all of us. And much to my surprise, the boys got along the ENTIRE trip!! I KNOW!! Even driving!! And they were so patient with their Mom...finding our way around...I have to admit...I did pretty dang good...and no GPS!! :o)

What We've Been Up To

The boys were cute to color eggs with me still! We had a fun...they're good to 'humor' their mom! :o)
With the crazy Utah Spring weather teasing us...we take advantage of the sunny days! The boys and their friends spend a lot of time riding their bikes down at 'the jumps' near our house. They even took our old couch down there!! LOL!

FHE With Friends

Jared and Ian were with us for dinner and Family Home Evening tonight. They made it much more lively! :o) We talked about Stephen Covey's 90/10 Principle...10% of life is made up of what happens to you...and...90% of life is decided by how you react. We really have NO control over 10% of what happens to us. "It only takes willpower to give ourselves permission to make the experience." Everything we do, give, say, or even think, it's like a will come back to us...
