Vegas Baby!

This weekend Jeff, Greg, Susan and I went to Vegas for the U2 concert. Really, what can I say about the concert? It was Magnificent! The Black Eyed Peas got it started for U2. All-in-all, it was a great concert.

The day after the concert Susan and I went to go to the pool and the spa at Ceasars while the boys watched football games all day long. I am sure this was their whole plan so we wouldn't bug them while they sat for 6 hours to watch football. The U won so they were on cloud 9. Afterwards we ate some great food and got a frozen hot chocolate from Serendipity. If you haven't ever gone to Serendipity you need to, it is so good. In fact, it was so good we had to go back for brunch the next day!

Jeff and Greg got distracted by David????

Feeling crafty

OK so I am not crafty at all but I just looked at my friend Celeste blog and it makes me want to try. Check out her new line of fabric and the owl she made with it. If you are feeling crafty she put up the pattern you can download.

Noah's visit

These pic are all when Paul and Noah came to visit. The kids had so much fun together. Jack loves playing with Noah.




Welcome to the family Avery

Paul and Summer had a new baby girl yesterday morning!! She was 7lbs 13oz and they named her Avery Jane. We are so excited and we can't wait to meet her.

I'm back in business

Jeff fixed our computer...hallelujah!!
After a long drawn out battle with HP, we won't get started on that, Jeff completely rebuilt our computer (much to my surprise it works and I am quite impressed). Jeff can now add to his resume computer builder. Watch out HP.
Jack was reading Isabelle his dinosaur book.
Jack has been waiting for it to rain so he could use his new frog umbrella!

Isabelle is showing her "pretty eyes" sporting her new obsessions (purse and necklaces).
Jack, Lily and Owen showing off their new tats!!

Dead Computer=Lack of Pictures

So my computer died a few weeks ago and is still dead so I haven't been able to update my blog. So I will give a little update on what we have been doing the last few weeks.

My cute little nephew Noah came out for the weekend and we where able to spend some time with him and Paul. (Summer and Alex we missed seeing you)

Jack turned 4!! I can't believe how fast time flies. It seems like he had a week long party between my family's party, preschool, his actual birthday, my in-laws taking him to the circus, and his birthday party. It was a busy week. He is already wondering when it will be his birthday again.

Once I get my computer fixed I will update with much needed pictures!

My friend Molly took some pictures of my kids last week and put a few up on her website you can check them out here. I haven't had their pictures taken for so long and Molly did such a great job. Although, Jack just sat there a posed every second so I am sure their are a billion pictures of him while Isabelle did not want to cooperate at all. Luckily, Molly was able to get some cute pictures and I can't wait to see the rest.

Day 1

Today was Jack's first day of preschool and I am happy to say that he survived, at least he was awake when I picked him up.

His little friend came over before school to play and all they could talk about was going to school...He has been so excited to go to school! I thought maybe he would be a little nervous going to school but as I pulled up he jumped out of the car and headed in and that was that. (His preschool has a drive up and load deal, which is very nice)

I was going to get a picture of them both before school but this is the only picture I managed to get of Jack before my camera died.


I am not sure what his hands were doing. I told him to say cheese and he held up his hands and said preschool.

Meanwhile while Jack was at school this is what Isabelle was doing to entertain herself....

anyone want to play?

2 Wheelin'

Here is Jack cruising down the street on his bike(with Jeff in tow). He is still working on balancing but he is doing pretty good.

We went to Jack's preschool yesterday for a little meet and greet. He was so excited to see his little buddy Chase there. After an hour of playing in the classroom and playing on the playground we decided to head to the grocery store. I put Jack and Isabelle in the car cart and headed in. While shopping (about 10 min) a lady stopped me and said "Your driver is asleep" I looked down and low and behold Jack was passed out at the wheel. I am hoping he was just exhausted from our Labor Day weekend activities at Great Grandma's house! Hopefully, they will not be carrying him out asleep from school tomorrow.

Better late then never

Lake Powell
We went to Lake Powell 2 weeks ago and I am now finally posting some pictures. I have two videotapes full of all of the action but I will save that for another time and place. So I had to steal some pic from my sister in law in order to post any pictures.
On our way down to Lake Powell we stopped at Stan's in Hanksville and in the kid's meals we received the best toy as you can see below (at least the kids thought so). Jack loved the tiger face he wore it until we reached the lake and then something better caught his eye!

Jack loved skiing! Anytime he was in the water or near the water he was loving life.

We went to Rainbow Bridge and here are all of the grandkids (minus Isabelle and Eli) with grandma and grandpa.

The whole gang at Rainbow Bridge (minus Jeff, Isabelle, and Eli)

It was a great trip full of wake boarding, skiing, surfing, crack swimming, playing in the sand (building rainbow bridge) and laying in the sun for a week. Thanks Mom and Dad. We had a great time!

Jeff already promised he was going for the week next year! We can't wait

We love the BEACH!!!

Good old John welcoming us to the Beach!


Sadly, the whole week we were together this is the only picture I have of all four of the kids.Jack loved getting in bed with Alex and Noah to watch a movie at night. Usually Noah would be a sleep in a few minutes but Alex and Jack would usually finish the movie and want to watch another one.

We loved going on the Ferris Wheel and Carousal at Balboa Island and eating at Ruby's!



We loved taking our nightly walks out to the pier to see some of the catches!
What would a trip to Newport be without going to the Crab Cooker?



Noah's daily finds...



We can't wait to go back again!

Seattle Fun

Jeff had a conference in Seattle this week, so I decided to tag along for the weekend. The weekend went way too fast, as usual, and now I am back to reality. Jeff, on the other hand, is still living it up! Here are some pictures of us at Pikes Place Market.
Check out the size of the shrimp and lobster tails! I couldn't believe how much seafood was there. These pictures make my mouth water.
There was a whole octopus on ice, as well as some crazy looking fish with it's tongue about to pop out. Yummy!

We went on a boat ride around Elliot Bay.

Seattle skyline + some lady's arm. Yes, my photography skills are amazing!We went to a baseball game - Mariners vs Red Sox. I think there were more Red Sox fans there then Mariners!


Finally, we went to the Space Needle, and had brunch at the rotating restaurant.

It was a great trip to Seattle, and the weather was great.
Thanks, John and Lezli, for watching the kids!
