We went camping this weekend and we really did enjoy it but I do have to say that I am not too sure that we will do much camping this summer because of our littlest boy Cohl. He enjoyed himself....but it was difficult having him there. He is really beginning to walk good at home HOWEVER that is with no shoes and on level ground both of which are not at the lake! So because of this he was either upset that he was crawling and get poked by numerous things or he was upset that he was being held and couldn't be walking around. Also he wouldnt sleep so I had to take him on drives to get him to nap so needless to say it was not as much fun as I wanted it to be with him. But give him a year and he will have a blast! Cohl also did not have the best week as he had a terribly high fever that made him end up here....
Yes the ER! Poor little guy had a fever of over 104 for two days so we finally decided we better get him in the Dr, but of course this had to be the day that our Dr.'s office is closed in the afternoon so off to the ER we went. After poking him a few times they finally got an IV in and after drawing some blood and getting a urine sample they were able to tell us that he had a UTI. So bless his little heart but we were thankful it wasn't anything more major. We can handle a UTI and we are already going to see the urologist next week for his year checkup. We were really hoping the VUR (the urinary reflux that he has) would have fixed itself by now, but guess it hasn't. So we will see. So I think this helped in the fact that he was not the Happiest "CAMPER" hehe!
There was a group of us for sure. Not counting Justin because he had to work nights all weekend, we had 15 of us! Wow. We had family friends from Colorado and New Mexico come up and it was really nice having them here and getting to hang out with them. We don't do it nearly enough. So it was fun. We will see when we decide to do this again. We are on the hunt for a camper....we will see if we end up buying one this year or waiting until next, but definatly a camper is a must with little ones :)

Tomorrow I am off to Jackson Hole for a few days for a Conference for work. I am really looking forward to going to Jackson but know I will miss my kids and Justin here. So we will see how it goes. One thing for sure I know I will get some beautiful pictures that I will post when I get back home!!!!

Two Cute Kids

Ok so we are a little biased but I think my kids are pretty darn cute :) Even when they are making a total disaster out of the house they are cute! Well they definatly made a disaster out of the house today with styrofoam but I got some cute pictures.

They really did have fun! So I couldn't complain. Afterwards I had Justin give them baths and I go cleaned up the mess. It was worth the fun they had :)
We finally bought one of the buggy things you pull behind your bike and the kids love it as do we. Justin got the privelege of having it behind his bike and b/c his bike is soo big I am not able to ride it so he is the one always having the pull them. Its a good work-out. We love going for bike rides now. It had been YEARS since we had gone. So its fun. The pictures below are from Father's Day. My hubby is one AMAZING Daddy! I couldn't ask for a better one!

And the last two pics are of our Jyllie Bean in cute outfit she got for her birthday. Can we say she is cute or what?!?!? It makes me so sad that she is growing up so quickly. :(

So I have to just say.....We I have two cute kids and one awesome husband! Happy Father's Day Justin!!!! (I'm just a day late in wishing him this!)

Jyllian's Birthday Party!

Jyllian's birthday party was supposed to be campout in the backyard, but due to the weather we had to move it inside. What weather you may ask??? How about this....

So needless to say we moved the party indoors and we ended up camping out in the living room :) Still we had fun.

And of course you can't have a sleepover/camp-out without telling ghost stories. It was so cute to listen to them tell their stories. Kids are so much fun!

Cohl wasnt about to let them have all of the fun :) he wanted in on it too.

For those of you who live far away and haven't gotten to see our house....I feel comfortable enough with our landscaping (we still have a lot to do) to show you our new house :) Only a year later. So this is our lovely home we do truly love it. We love the neighborhood, lots of young people and kids which is exactly what we wanted and looking out our back window we feel like we live in the country even though we really don't. It has the space we wanted and the fact that its brand new was even better. We are working slowly on the basement and finishing it...but its a work in progress as is our yard. Regardless this is our humble home!

Front of the house
Back yard--grass is coming in--again work in progress
Iris' that I planted in the flower bed

Looking out the back door--the circle path and fire pit that you can see because of the chair :)

Our "Playground" I feel like we have a daycare in our house or something :)

Our tree we planted in the front yard

View from the street--we still have some patches we need to fill in the front yard

All the gravel work we did and the shrubs we planted
So thats it! The outside at least. Maybe one day I will be brave enough to the do the inside :)
