I decided that since our house was already a construction zone, that I would go ahead and paint while I didnt have to worry about taping baseboards and getting it on our new floor. Me and Troy both didnt really like the light purple that most of the walls were painted, so I painted over the light purple with a taupe. We left the plum wall the same, I love the new color! I didnt finish everything, but I got the living room done before Troy finishes the floor. I just have to paint into the dining room and down the hallway.

Our lunch at the Gateway

I went down to the Gateway yesterday on my lunch break with everyone to take the kids to play in the fountain. I went with Amy, Jenni, and my friend Brooke and her twin boys. Isac also brought his BF Isaac. It was so cute watching all of them play. Other than the 2 Isac's, Sam probably loved it the most! Emily was having fun until her and Sam had a collision, after that she was pretty grumpy. Max & Zac never really got into it. They seemed pretty hesitant the whole time! Overall, we all had fun. I wish I could have stayed longer than I did.

Our weekend

Well, our stressful weekend is FINALLY over and me ant Troy feel so much better after speaking in church is OVER!! We both did a great job and we have gotten alot of sincere compliments from people. It was a good experience and we both learned alot, but we are in such better moods now that it is finished! After church on Sunday, we went over to Amy's house for a littl birthday celebration for me. Most of the pics I took were of Emily & Sam riding the Power Wheels. They were so cute and funny. I alos posted some pics of the progress we are making on our living room floor. It is going to look SO GOOD once it is finished! We can't wait!

Weekend Update

I thought I would give a run down of our weekend all at once. Me and Isac had an aunt/nephew date night on Thursday night and we went to a movie then Troy joined us for a bike ride after the movie was over. It was a fun night and nice to get to spend time with just Isac without having to worry about watching Emily and Mack, too. Friday afternoon Amy brought the rest of the kids up and we went to the Dinosaur Park in Ogden. It was alot cooler than we both thought it would be and Isac & Emily both loved it! I had no idea how much Isac knew about Dinosaurs! They were both so excited and Emily just ran around repeating everything Isac said. It was so funny. Friday night and all day Saturday me and Troy worked on tearing up our carpet and prepping the floor to start installing our hardwood floors! I wish I would have taken some "Before" pictures so that we could see the "Before & After", but I didnt even think about it. I guess most of you have already seen the "Before". I can't wait until we are finished, it is going to look so good! We rewarded all of our hardwork by going to Golden Coral for a late dinner Saturday night! Yummy! Here are some pics from the weekend and also a few misc ones that I found that I never posted.

Yesterday's lunch

Yesterday for lunch, Me and my friend Holly stopped off and met Troy and some of the people he works with for lunch downtown. My good friend Bekah also joined us since she works downtown. It was cool b/c they had live music playing, but it was kind of too loud to socialize. It was still fun though. I would like to do it more often especially on Thursdays when I have to go into Salt Lake for work.

Photo Albums

Hello again,

I have been trying to get alot of our pictures published online to share with everyone and I finally got one album done. I plan to update it regularly with new or past pictures, but we will see how that goes! I added the pictures from our honeymoon in Hawaii for now b/c I was looking through them and they made me happy. Hopefully all of you will enjoy looking at them again and especially if it is your first time to see them. You can visit our photo album website at or just by clicking on the "Our Pictures" link from the You Might Be Interested... section on the right. Once you get to the page, click on "View Pictures" and then choose "Slideshow" from the top so you can scan through them easily. Check back from time to time for new pics and ENJOY!

It's been awhile!

Hi Everyone!

It's been awhile since I've posted anything new. This past weeked was a really fun weekend for us, but I was a total space cadet and forget to take ANY pictures the whole time. Troy's brother, Scott, and his family came down from Idaho to visit for the weekend. We went to Lagoon all day Saturday and it was fun, but we all got SO TIRED after only a few hours. I guess we are all getting too old. On Sunday morning we had a big breakfast at our house with Troy's other brother and his Dad joining us. We hung out until early afternoon until Scott headed back to Idaho. Later that night, our friends Ty and Holly came over for dinner and to help us figure out how to install our wood floors! Yay! It was a fun weekend, but I am sorry to say that I felt pretty out of it the whole time. I look forward to camping with everything Labor Day weekend!

Mack's baby blessing

Our night at the drag races. NOT!

Well, Saturday night we were planning on going to the drag races at Rocky Mountain Raceway, but ended up not going b/c the track was wet from the rain. So we ended up eating at the Olive Garden with Troy's family and then going to see I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry. It was funny, but overall, we were disappointed. It was a really fun night hanging out with Jeremy & Crystal and, of course, Troy's dad. Oh, and Troy also got a new bow on Saturday! :)

Our night at the shooting range

Last night I surprised Troy with a trip to a 3D archery range up by Brigham City. It was intended for Troy to get some practice in before the hunt this year, but it turned out to be more of me playing with my new bow and him wishing he had his new one! It was still really fun though! Hopefully he will get his new one soon and we can go up and play there again. It was a really fun place to go. We didnt take many pictures b/c we were having so much fun we totally forgot about it so we just took a couple as we were leaving. Enjoy!
