Antelope Island

We went to Antelope Island on Sunday and had a blast! I had never been there and I didn't know what I was missing. It was so beautiful, I can't wait to go back! Marcie, Alex, Sean, Jeremy and I drove in the new Jeep out there. We had tons of fun, here are a few pics of our day...
Marcie being a nerd... nothing new!

Me and Marcie being cute... nothing new again! We are always cute!
Sean in a zen moment.

Ohhh fer cute!
I'm not a photographer... but this looks beautiful! Sean is walking on water!

Yee Haw!

3:55 pm on Tues. May 27th

Here I am at work, 3 days left!! They moved my computer to the back cubies today and took off all my filters so I'm able to do a post! I'm super excited about that so I thought I would let everyone know. Come Monday (that's a Jimmy Buffett song!) I will be unemployed and couldn't be happier! I am going to start my own little biz and go to school - life will be great!

Marcie was here over the weekend and I have some fun pics of Antelope Island. I will hopefully get those up tonight!

Natalie is home from Spain! Thank God - I really missed her! :)

Mother's Day!

Oh, Happy Mother's Day to me! It was a great day... I went for a walk with my friend Heather at 7:00 am (hence no sleeping in,) then made my own breakfast for Jeremy's parents, mowed my own lawn and did yard work, then made my own dinner for my parents! Can you believe it - I was a mom on Mother's Day! I have decided Mother's Day is completely commercialized and mom's get this idea in their head that it's going to be relaxing and peaceful, that kids are going to magically behave and it will be a different kind of day! Then WHAP! Reality hits you in the face and you realize it's just another day, but that kind of day is what you love about being a mom! I did get a fancy iPod from Liam so that was really great, (it's my first one if you can believe it!) I have decided though, from now on I am going to make everyday Mother's Day and just enjoy being a mom all the time. It's what I've always wanted and I feel very lucky to be a mom! Here a some really cute pics of Liam from the day. Love, love, love his outfit! The Dogwood warehouse sale goes until the end of the month, if you want the info on the place, let me know. I got some great clothes for Liam and they are super cute!

Cute pic of Liam, but I didn't shower all day so I look like crap!

Liam took this of me and Tassy.

I think I will have to blow this up and frame it. It's too cute! Don't you love his hair? It's growing out so much, he's the cutest thing ever!
Happy Mother's Day to all the mom's! To my mom, you are the most amazing person and I am so lucky to have you! To the women in my life that are like mom's to me, I love you too!

The Monthly Update

Well, Hello! It's starting to become the monthly update blog, I hope that's okay, I just don't have as much to post as I used to! I have to say, that's okay with me! Life is starting to settle down and we are getting more used to being business owners. Jeremy is still working a lot, but it's getting a little easier and more steady. He is trying to get our staff ready so we can go to Jamaica the 5th of June! He's very nervous, but we are just trying to get everything in place so we can leave and have fun. Other than that, things are pretty much the same. We finally got Liam a swing set! I have wanted one since he was an infant, so this was the year! He loves it, but still loves to swing in the baby swing. I really don't blame him, he seems so comfy! I noticed as I was downloading all of the new pictures, I do not have any pictures of the dang thing yet, so I guess I will be taking some tomorrow.

Also, I put in my notice at my job at First American! I'm feeling very free, but at the same time, very nervous! I'm questioning myself, but at the same time already feeling the pressure is so much less. It will be a good move, and I will have another job very soon.

Alright, so here are some new pictures. It has been a crazy start to spring! It's literally 80 degrees one day and snowing the next. Everyone says "that's Utah!" but I haven't had a 2 year old that didn't understand until now! He get's really mad that he can play outside all day one day, then has to be inside the next. These pics are funny because you can tell he doesn't care what the weather is!

These construction trucks were in the parking lot behind my office for a while. I took Liam over there a few Sundays ago to check them out. He's OBSESSED with any kind of construction equipment! I think these were a little too big for him, he was very intimidated! He wouldn't go near them for a pic without me, so this is what we get!
Liam's serving his first tea party! Cute! He dragged his table out into the yard and scooped dirt for "all the kids." I was inside making dinner and saw this when I went out to check on him. I thought it was adorable!

This was the day after we went to see the construction trucks! (My pics got out of order!) He didn't care one hoot that it was snowing!
These are more from the Jordan River parkway behind my office. With a picture like this, how could you want to live anywhere other than Utah? Look at those mountains!!!
