Catch Up Time

Now that school is almost back in session I figured I should probably update what we have been up to over the summer. So here is a quick over view...

Jeff got his associates.

We went and stayed with our friends Cody and Robyn and their children. While we were there we went to the Hill Aerospace Museum. I think Isaac was a little taken back by all of the very large airplanes. He wasn't quite sure what to think while we were there.
We took a little detour on our way home and stopped in Heber to see Thomas the Train while it was in town since Isaac has been a big fan of trains lately. Again Isaac wasn't sure what to think while on the train ride. Before seeing this train all he ever saw were the tv shows like Thomas the Train, Dinosaur Train, and lately a favorite for him, The Polar Express or toy trains. So he never really knew how big an actual train was until then.
Thomas taking more passengers for a ride.
Then in June I was a bridesmaid for Brittnae, a cousin that we have gotten to become good friends with and that was fun for me at least being able to be a part of her special day.
Brittnae had an open house up north and while we were up there for that we went to the Kennecott Copper mine. One of these tires costs over $25,000 and each truck has 6 tires. That's a lot of money. And they don't even last more than 9 months. Crazy.
The 4th of July we went to Jeff's uncles house and celebrated Independence Day with there family.
SkyWest had a discount for certain days to Tuacahn to see either The Little Mermaid or Grease. Obviously we chose The Little Mermaid which was pretty good minus the two 20 minute delays due to rain.
We got home around midnight, had to make sure we were all packed and ready to leave by 4:50am to head to the airport and be on our way to Chicago.

We got to Chicago on Thursday. Friday Jeff and I went to Six Flags and played in the water a good part of the day.

Saturday Jeff, Isaac, Grandma, Grandpa and I went to the Shedd Aquarium. We went and watch a little dolphin show. Then we went and watch a 4-D Dora the explorer movie which didn't impress Isaac and pretty much after that the Aquarium went down hill (at least for Isaac).

We saw penguins and very large various types of fish.

A favorite part of mine at the aquarium were seeing all of the different types of Jelly Fish. This was one of my favorites.

Monday we took a train into Chicago and walked around for awhile. We went to The Bean, we walked to a Disney store and headed back to catch the train back to Jeff's parents home.
Isaac liked seeing his reflection in the bean.
Wednesday Jeff and I went and saw Peter Pan which was another fun experience. It was done in a round tent and the scenes were projected onto the ceiling. I liked this version of peter pan because there wasn't much singing involved.

Just a cute picture of a worn out, tired little man.

Being silly while on the train.

Thursday was my favorite day of the trip because we got to go to a Cubs game which I very much enjoyed. Isaac enjoyed it as well but eventually fell asleep because of all the excitement.

Sunday we headed home which was a very long day for us.
and that has been the most eventful moments of our summer.

The Last Little While

Not a whole lot has been going on but here are some pictures from the last couple of months.

Every now and then I will be doing something in another room and all of a sudden I will hear music playing. I will go check on Isaac and he will be there playing on the piano. It's pretty cute.

For St. Patrick's day I made rice krispie treats. They turned out a lot better than I thought.
The leprechauns found us and turned our dinner green. It was rice and cream of chicken soup.

For spring break we went to Las Vegas for a day and watched the dolphins and saw the lions and tigers at the mirage. It's the closest thing to a zoo for a us and it was pretty fun.
So that has been what we have been up to. Not a whole lot and I have been alright with that.

So I new my parents were sending us something for Christmas but I wasn't sure on what they were sending. I called my mom to see if there was a tracking number to the box and got that number. I looked it up on the internet and it had it's weight at 121. So I new it was something heavy. Then someone called me this morning to see if I would be home all day that they could drop it off sometime. They mentioned something about it being electronic. So now I know that it was electronic and it weighed 121. Then a guy knocks on our door and says, "I have a piano or something like it for you." He then went and brought this box to me and I was in Heaven. I have been wanting a piano so very bad for so very long and now that dream has finally come true. Thanks to my WONDERFUL parents. THANK YOU mom and dad.
The box it came in.

The piano all put together. It's so very pretty. I absolutely love our new piano.

So last night I had stepped outside for a minute. It wasn't really that cold. This morning I looked outside and there is maybe an inch of snow. Isaac didn't enjoy being outside very much.

The neighbor kids and I built this snowman. He lasted about 5 minutes and then it was destroyed.
Isaac eventually became a little happier after finding a puddle to splash in.

Christmas Break

For Thanksgiving we went up to Logan to visit my family. While we were up there we went to my sisters and my entire family was together. It had been awhile since we have all been in the same place at the same time so it was fun to be with everyone.

When we got back home I thought it would be fun getting Isaac throwing leaves up in the air. I think he had fun.

Halloween Fun

These are the 2 pumpkins that I did. Woodstock I decided would be a lot easier to paint and snoopy was the one that I cut out.

Snoopy with the flash on.

Snoopy with the flash off.
Isaac's first Halloween he was a football, his 2nd Halloween he was a skunk so I had to keep up the creative ideas and came up with the idea of him being a backpack.

Friday was the parade at SkyWest where we took Isaac trick-or-treating to different cubicles.

Saturday we went to our ward trunk-or-treat and then afterward we went trick-or-treating with our friends ALL around St. George.
Isaac all tuckered out after a long day of trick-or-treating

Isaac did it.

There I was sitting on the couch minding my own business when whack, I got hit in the head with a train track. No, I did not punish Isaac for throwing it. I was to mad and in pain that I had to go and put myself in time out before I did anything stupid.
Less than a week later, I had the ironing board leaning against the wall by the door when Isaac shoved the door open and knocked the ironing board down and it hit my leg.
He is still just too cute and so hard to get mad at sometimes.
