Zion is Gorgeous

Yesterday we made a family trip to Zion National Park. Zion is only about 45 minutes away from where we live so it was a nice break without a long drive. Mom knew we couldn't stay past 2 because nap times were around there and sure enough, we were on the bus back to our car and the fits began. But I do consider that normal and a minor detail in our exciting trip. So I will just post pictures so you can see instead of read.

Here are my boys getting ready to ride the bus through the park.
AJ was so excited to be out in an open area. We ate lunch at the Grotto and he seemed to like to run around and play with sticks there, not much eating was done.I thought this picture of Noble was kind of funny. He seemed to like to be in the backpack most of the time though.Dad, who actually wanted to eat and not run around. Here is Brady and Noble hiding under the bus stop. It had started raining while we were eatin glunch and we weren't sure how it was going to turn out. It ended up rainging for only a few minutes and was actually pretty light. We just couldn't tell due to the gorgeous rock formations in the way.This is my favorite picture. This is the view from weeping rock. It just doesn't get much better than this.Just so you know, AJ was totally falling out of my arms. But this is our family pic.
This is me at weeping rock. Isn't it gorgeous (the rock of course)?

So Lonely without my better half=(

My husband is on his retreat and will be back tomorrow around the normal time he gets home everyday. I think I learn to appreciate all the things he helps me with when he is gone. Like getting the kids up in the morning. I am so not a morning person. I like it when after I feed the baby he takes him downstairs to play while I get myself ready and then I get the oldest up and we go have breakfast as a fam. Well since dad wasn't here, I tried getting ready with my baby but he just wanted to nurse more instead of play, I think he needs to leave the room to have something else on his mind. AJ got up okay but wasn't to interested in eating and we totally forgot to read scriptures and say prayer this morning all because dad was gone. I am so glad I have a wonderful husband who helps keep us in order in our house.
Today wasn't all bad, the kids went to bad rather nicely. We'll see how tomorrow goes. I am going to take them to the dinosaur farm and hopefully that will fill up part of our day so it won't seem so long. Maybe we'll have a picnic too because it is finally cooling down a bit. I just wish they had more trees here to find shade under, oh well.

So, we are looking at new tvs and I was wondering if anybody had suggestions on what they have whether you like it or not. We are looking at either a 27" or a 32", anything bigger than that is to big. Heck, that is way bigger than our 14" which is even smaller when you watch those widescreen movies. Well, I wouldn't mind some input if anybody had some.

So this is our new home. It is definetly different renting and not owning our own home anymore. There is the advantage of not having to fix everything, we call someone to do that. Yet there is the many design flaws in this place that I would love to rip out and redo, don't get me started on how unintelligent this person was when they designed our "walk-in closet". Well, none the less it is our home and we love it here.

This pic is from our trip to Cedar City Labor day weekend. I hardly ever get a picture with my boys cause I am always taking it so Brady was kind enough to take one of me to prove that these our my children, not the stretch marks are proof enough!

I think we need to work on that picture taking thing. Neither one of them really seem to get the whole smile for the camera, it usually comes after the flash. Weird!

Bank Fraud

BEWARE, we just had a bank statement come from my husbands bank and it had a charge of 9.70 that I knew he had not made. The company is Image Company out of NJ and the phone number for the place is 1-888-329-3564. Watch out it is a fraud.
Keep a close eye on your accounts. It is debted so the bank usually will not refund it. I guess I am supposed to keep track of my husbands account not too. I had assumed he checked on line occassionally but I guess not.
Just everyone watch out. I know someone else that had this happen to them so I know we are not the first nor are we going to be the last.
