Vacation....At Last....

I cannot begin to tell you how excited we are to be able to go on our first "Real" family vacation.  We have had time at Christmas to visit family, which was fabulous, but school was always in the background.  We have never really been able to just get away with family and enjoy the beach, visiting monuments or parks, etc.  Well, it has finally come.....Zack's parents, for graduation, have paid for us to join the family on vacation at a beach in Mobil, Alabama.  We are so excited!  So, our next post will be our pictures from Alabama....

Happy Anniversary!

We have been married 4 years today!  I remember how excited I was just to get to a year so that we could actually use years instead of months or days to describe our marriage.  I can't believe how fast time flies though!  It has been a lot of fun and hard work.  We have moved  6 times, had 2 kids, worked at 5 jobs, finished school, joined the Air Force.....and the list goes on and on.

How grateful I am for a husband who is my listening ear, my confidant, the love of my life, my best friend, a worthy priesthood holder, a leader in our home and a father.  I Love You so much!

Building the Sandbox

As you can see from our last entry, the playset outside in Nana and Papa's yard was just that...a playset.  Well, about 2 weeks ago, it was converted to a playset sandbox.  I have to say that I wasn't really happy about it because I HATE sand.  I think sand belongs on the beach and that is where it should stay.  I hate trying to clean sand off children and trying to make sure that it doesn't track inside of the house.  Needless to say, Nana told me that I would certainly get used to it.  I am happy to report that I have!  The boys absolutely love it and it has allowed their imagination to grow!

Swinging Is Fun To Do

One of the greatest things about being here in Idaho, besides being close to family, is the fact that Nana and Papa have a backyard.  My parents back in Arizona had a backyard but there was a pool so the boys could never really just run around without someone being outside and without much worry and stress; the Idaho backyard is free of all said pools.  The boys have loved being able to run around on the grass, play in the planter beds (nothing is growing in them yet), swing on the swings and play on the fort and trampoline.  Jackson LOVES swinging in his swing and jumping on the trampoline.  He would jump and swing for hours if we would let him!  So, we thought we would let you catch a glimpse of their fun.....
