I stole this from Bekah - I think it's such a fun idea. Here are the directions:

1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses.

Our Summer Part II

Our summer hasn't been nearly as jam packed as we were hoping, but we are still having fun and just spending a lot of time watching movies and relaxing. We celebrated another baby birthday...Happy Birthday Will! We took our niece and nephew for a quick swim at the lake...I recovered from my wasp attack...And this past weekend we finally got to go camping...

Scott, I hope Troy took enough pictures of the campsite for you! :)

I guess third time really is a charm...

I know alot of you already know, but I thought it was safe to announce to the rest of the world that I am 13 weeks pregnant! We were beginning to think that maybe it wasnt going to happen for us, but here we are! Sorry, I couldnt post the ultrasound pic from my appt yesterday, so you guys get to see the little kidney bean at 9 weeks. I am due January 21, 2009 and, of course, Troy is about to die of excitement waiting to find out if he is getting a boy. My appt to find out isnt until the first week of September, do you guys think he will be able to wait until then or will we be making a trip to fetal fotos in the next couple of weeks?? I guess we will just wait and see....

Quasimodo Lives!

So, 7-7 has been a really lucky day for us...first, we had our 4-way walk through of our house. It is completely framed and all the electrical and plumbing is done, now they can start sheet rocking this week, YAY! This is the only pic I got before my camera died... To celebrate the progress of the house, we went out for our first Tepanyaki experience with some good friends of ours. It was SO GOOD!! I can't wait to eat my leftovers! And it was so funny to watch Kelly get all kinds of food thrown at her. Next, we got our neighbors mattress sold for her and then, even better, we SOLD our Toyota! YAY! It looks like we might be able to buy our new house after all!
And now for the fun part of the day...as I was standing watching Troy and this other guy load the mattress I was attacked in the face by what I believe was a killer wasp. It stung me twice right underneath my eye. I have never been stung by a wasp before and I have never understood why everyone freaks out and gets so paranoid when one flies by. I also thought, if you just leave it alone, it wont bother you, right? Well, it wasn't so bad getting stung when it just looked like this... But then it turned into this...

Do you see a resemblance?

Sigh of Relief

Well, the big move is finally over! It feels so good to be back in Bountiful, aka B-town. I dont know what it is about Bountiful, but it is the only place I have lived since I've been in Utah that everytime I come back, it always feels like I am coming home. Maybe its because both of my sisters live here with their families, maybe it's the Mandarin and Robintino's, maybe it's because this is where all of my closest friends live, or maybe, just maybe it's because this is the place that my life has changed the most since I've been in Utah. This is the place that I put the pieces back together, got back in touch with who I was, where I wanted my life to go, and started over. So, yeah, I guess you could say it feels good to be back. Even if we do only have one room to ourselves and a bathroom that we share with 5 other people. :) I look forward to a fun summer of playing while we have limited responsibilities while our house is being finished!

I do have to say even though I love being in Bountiful again, it was kind of sad to leave our house in Kaysville. That was mine and Troy's first home together so it will always hold a special place in our hearts. And we will definately miss our backyard view! :) Thanks to everyone who made us feel welcome during our short time there. I hope the same hospitality is extended to our renters. They have a little more to offer to the neighborhood than we did, 3 kids! (aka: new playmates for all of your kids!)
