Summer Yummy

Isn't summer wonderful. I loved Alaska but I forgot what good fruit tastes like. I think I'm in heaven here. We eat way too much fruit. It's just so good. Hudson thinks so as well. Every time I buy strawberries this is what he does. Then I have to eat the rest or use them in something that night.

Eli has gained this love of tomatoes and eats them like apples. I have to buy twice what I normally do so he can eat half. How can I tell them "no you can't have fruit and vegetables." Don't get me wrong they still ask for ice cream and posicks ( that's what Hudson calls popsicles) every day to I just have no problem telling them no to those things.

Utah Once Again

We just got back from a week and half long trip to Utah. It was great. It was like a road trip cause it takes two days to get to northern Utah with kids. The boys do amazing in the car. They'll go a good 4-6 hours with nothing more than a couple of toys after that its movie time. Who ever invented portable DVD players is a genius.

I love having that time where Robb and I can sit and talk about nothing for hours while the kids sleep in the back of the car. I learned that Robbs a trek nerd... you know those people who are in love with Star Trek. It just makes me love him more.

First we went to Robb's Hulet family reunion which always turns out to be way fun. They always have this little old man come and do a little train for the kids here a picture of them. It was so hot. Robb took the pictures while I sat in the little shad there was. Next we were off again for SLC.
My cute sisters did a little baby shower for me at my brother's pool party. My sisters are so wonderful. They all brought gifts with the cutes girl stuff, outfits, onesies, blankets, bibs and even glass bottles. Laura (my bother Dallans wife) already sent me 6 or so of the cutes little outfits right after the ultra sound. She was just as excited as me. My best friend Jen came with her hubby Nathan, Lilly 3 and Kingston 3 months (I think). It was so sweet of them to do a baby shower. It was fun to get baby girl stuff. Plus I threw away all my bottles and pacifiers and a lot of baby stuff in the move.

We just hung out at my moms house for the week and loved every minute. What is it about moms house that makes you just want to take a nap and be lazy? Robb says I act a bit different when I'm home and around my brothers and sisters. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing.

We made a last minute decision to make a trip to Logan and see the Doxey clan. Since it was last minute Emily was in North Carolina wind surfing but we saw Mike, Abby, Rion, and Sophia. I can't believe its been two years since I've seen them. It was so nice to be around old friends. I really hate making new friends in New Mexico. I have become a little recluse... withdrawals from missing everyone in Alaska.

It was a good trip but I forgot to take pictures like I normally do! I did find my camera the day before we left, happy day. This is my favorite picture from the bunch.

This was while driving on the Indian res. in Arizona. Ha Ha we think the guy was pretty drunk. He was kind of swerving and driving under the speed limit. We passed him as soon as possible.

On the way home we went a different way and went through Monticello Utah. I've never been there but it was amazing beautiful. We only had to drive through one one Indian Res. through Colorado. It was all really beautiful. In my old age I've really grown to love Southern Utah.

I can't find my camera with all my pictures from Alaska to New Mexico. It's really not that big of a deal but I feel like those weeks of my life have been erased like they never even happened. I don't even like taking pictures, so why should I care so much? I CARE! I want my camera back. I had it as we were unpacking, but now that were all moved in and life has started to resume as normal I can't find it anywhere. I forgot the could less hours where I sit with my kids and we look at pictures and Eli tells all about whats going on in them like I wasn't even there. I love it.

In the process of finding my camera I have lost my phone twice, my ipod, my flip video camera and my sunglasses a numerous amount of times. All of which I have found, so why can't I find my camera? I seem to be losing everything right now like I've been taking crazy pills.
