Our Adventures so Far this Month

Life started out with a bang this month with so much fun stuff to do. I have learned that in a moment everything can change right before your eyes. Clint has been working tirelessly on finishing our basement before the baby gets here , and it has come a long way . We decided to hire out the sheet rock which gave us a couple of weeks off from working in the basement and more time to enjoy our kids and I am ever so glad that we have had that time!!

We started out at Thanksgiving point at the children's water gardens. Abram and Clint are making a tunnle in the sand I remember doing this as a kid and being so excited that you could touch hands under your sand pile.

The boys racing boats down the river.

We found this little nest of birds in the bear cave . Baby birds so cute!!

My cute boys in the bear cave.

Playing in the fountains.

Our 4th of July was a blast! We had our annual party at Neil and Becky's which was so fun. This is Mr. Abram at the fire work show in front of Grandma and Grandpas house.

Maggie and Fisher with Nolan and Tate watching the show. Neil did an excellent job buying fireworks this year. We had quite the show!

Nolan and Tate with their sparklers.

During the day we went to the new splash park by our house with the Boles.

Abram relaxing at the water park.

All the kids playing.

More splash park. We love hanging out with the Boles family.

Our kids really wanted to do fireworks in front of our house. They had so much fun helping Clint light them and then they would run as fast as they can back to the side walk. They make me laugh, and make me so happy!!

The weekend before the 4th we spent in Gunnison with my Sister Jodi and her family. They have a great celebration. My kids had a blast at the carnival, where they had the classic games that I remember doing at carnivals when I was a kid. You can spend like 10 bucks on tickets for all three of my kids, and they last all day.

Jodi had an awesome set up in the back yard and we sang karaoke all night. We all rocked it hard core. So much fun!! Thanks for the party Jodi!!

while the boys golf the girls lay in the sun at the lake and let the kids swim. This is one of my favorite things in the world and I look forward to it all year long. My boys love this lake and have so much fun!!

One of our favorite past time is just playing in the back yard in the blow up pool. oh how I love summer time.

Bam just like that life changes one day I am watching my boys ride bikes in the front yard. The next I am in the hospital . I am 31 weeks pregnant and my water brakes. This is very hard to wrap my head around. Right now I am just trying to not go into labor until this baby is bigger. I am here for a while. 3 to 5 weeks. I am able to get of of bed to shower and use the bathroom, other then that I am in a bed all day and all night. I miss my family more then you could ever know. I am so sad to miss out on the rest of their summer. I hope and pray that this baby is healthy and will be able to come home fast and life can get back to normal soon.

We had planned on going to Fish Lake with Clints family. I made Clint still go and take the boys. it was so hard to be away from them for so long. But, it made me happy to know that my boys were with their dad having a amazing time and not having to worry about their mom in the hospital. Clint is the best dad in the world and I have the best kids ever. I am so grateful for my family.

Nolan, Maggie, and Tate. So cute. I love those hats. They had a great time fishing and had tons of stories to tell me.

Lark really took to Abram on this trip and wanted to be with him all the time. Lindy told me she even started calling him buabua. He is going to be such a great big brother. I am excited to see my boys with our new little guy.

Abram with Ashlyn. My boys stayed with my sister Jodi for the first few days while I have been in the hospital. Clint picked them up on the way to Fish Lake.

I am so greatful for her and her family for helping those first few days. It was so great to know they are in good care when they cant be with me.

Me.... this is what I looked like when they left. This is what I looked like when they got back. This is what I will look like for a while. I hope and pray that this baby comes healthy and strong so I can get back to making more memories with my family.
