One down 4 to go!

So I told Josh that I would move to Washington, but that we were going to get some things done. One of those things is to teach the kids how to ride their bikes without training wheels. I'm an awful parent when it comes to things like that. Poor Crenna is 10 and yes, yes she finally has her training wheels off. It is a way big thing for us, since they don't get on their bikes very often. She got out there last week and I noticed she wasn't even using them. After a little bit of anxiety on her part, we took the training wheels off, and off she went. She was so excited. Now we have 4 more to go. Hopefully it won't take 2 more years to get Maya trained. Cross your fingers for us!

Just a day out in Seattle

Last weekend Josh surprised us and took us on an outing to the famous Pike Market downtown Seattle. We had a fun time watching a few fish get thrown. We looked at all the interesting things for sale, and went down by the harbor near the aquarium. I bought some tulips, my fave. I am so glad the season is just starting. It sure is a crazy market with lots of people, but I wouldn't mind going back. Kids had fun and we even got a little bit of chocolate for being so good. All in all it was a good outing.

Crenna's new doo!

After looking at Crenna's bad haircut that she got down in Cabo, we decided to see my great hairdresser in Utah to help us out. See if she did a good job. She looks so grown up now.

Disneyland 2009

Long Time No Blog!

It has been forever since I have blogged. I have gotten hooked on Facebook and have neglected updating my blog. Lots has been happening with our family since our episode at the beach in Cabo.

We made the move up to Utah at Thanksgiving. We had a great meal with my family and a fun time visiting. Josh stayed a few days and then headed back to Cabo for work. After the break I got the kids in school and got them on a schedule. We did that until it was Christmas break. We had a great Christmas. Josh came in for a few weeks. We went tubing up by Heber. The kids had a blast, even mom and dad did too. Josh left on the 1st of Jan., again back to work in Cabo. The kids were on year round school so they had the whole month off of Jan. We went to the library alot and played on scooters, and did the school work that the teachers had sent home with them. It was a long month, but we knew that after Jan. was over we were headed to Disneyland for a week.

Josh's work shut down and they parted ways. He packed up the house and was headed north by the end of Jan.

We had an awesome time at Disneyland. The kids had an awesome time. They loved all the rides and we all enjoyed each others company. We also headed to the Santa Monica Pier, where we ate at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. We drove down the famous Rodeo Dr. and I was so excited to finally see the famous Beverly Hills Hotel. We walked the Walk of Fame down in Hollywood. Crenna even got to see her Hollywood sign more than once while we were there.

The kids are back in school and I am loving that we are back on a schedule. We are happy to be back as a family once more again. I hope we never have to do that commute back and forth ever again.
