Time flies when you're having fun!

Wow, It feels like forever since I have updated. We have spent the last week in St. George staying at the inlaws house and visiting friends and family. I can't say enough how grateful I am for Grandmas! They are always so willing and eager to tend and change diapers. I was pretty sad to have to come home and face cleaning my house again. Being there really made me miss those red rocks and the hot weather! Thank goodness for relatives!!
By the way Madi's new nickname is "scooter" she is almost 14 mo. and up until now has showed no signs of wanting to move around, but a couple of days ago she learned to scoot on her butt around the house, I tried to get a pic but it just doesn't capture how incredibly funny it looks!

This should have been a previous blog but I'm just getting around to getting the pics off the laptop...anyways, in July Mike and I went to DC to visit some good friends and go to thier sealing in the DC temple. We left the kids to switch off with both sets of grandparents in St. George and took off for a week. I cried till we got to Mesquite(however you spell that), but then decided that it has been almost 3 years since we have really done anything by ourselves -longer than a couple of hours- and we both really deserved the break.

So needless to say we had a blast!!! We spent most of our time in the city and then left one night at 3a.m., drove to New York, got there at 7 and spent the entire day sight seeing. We left NY at about 9p.m. and then spent the rest of the week back in DC. We got to do a session and go to the sealing in the DC temple which was ablolutely amazing!! All in all our kids did great, we had a lot of fun and we're looking forward to another vacation (someday in a couple of years)!

Potty Training

Ahh the joys of toilet training. Tyson is 2 1/2 so I'm not worried that he hasn't totally latched onto the whole idea. He does really well during the day and I decided to start putting him in "big boy underwear" while he is awake. He really likes his spiderman pants and LOVES getting a treat after he goes. However, I feel like he's getting candy all day long when he goes pee every hour....any sugestions on a healthier version of the potty treats? Well, that is about it as far as training goes, no major mishaps or horrible accidents to report so far, should be fun to see when it finally clicks and one less diaper to change...Yay for potty training!!

This summer has been so busy and fun with family reunions, camping, vacation, etc... I am glad that it is finally August though and things have started to slow down and get back into routine. I have to say that I love being a mom and get to take my kids all those fun places, they are so much fun! Tyson is at that age where he is so testy yet so witty and full of laughter. Madi is only one and still figuring things out but also full of smiles. I am excited to watch them grow and learn more and take them even more places the older they get.

Next week Mike will be leaving for California to work with the Bank so I guess it will be good for me to see how well I can hold the fort down on my own. I am going to take the opportunity to go see friends and family in St. George for a couple of days. I'm pretty excited about that, plus the grandparents are way excited to see the kids...I hope it's a nice little break.
