Choo Choo!!


So for Memorial Day weekend while Jeremy worked on Sat my dad, brother, grandmother, mom, and owen all went to spanish fork cemetary. Pretty much my whole mom's side is there and its really cool to see all the names of my ansestors there together. After we had lunch at this little hole in the wall place its sortof a tradition in my family to have lunch there after we go put flowers down. It goes back clear to my great grandma morgan she would make my mom and siblings stop for a icecream. Pretty cool i could introduce it to owen.




Jer had to work again on sunday but finally on monday he was off! We really love his days off with us. We wanted to make it a fun day for Owen since his days off are usually filled with honey-do's from me that we dont make it out of the house! We bought tickets to A Day with Thomas in Heber. We chose the earliest time to ride the train so we could divide our time between our families the rest of the day. It seemed like a good idea at the time but waking up at 6:30 to get ready and get out there by 9 was no good! Plus it was raining cats and dogs. Owen had on 3 layers of clothes and a hoodie but i stupidly forgot his gloves so his little hads were just about froze till we pulled them into his coat to be next to the warmness of his body. He looked pretty funny and just as we did it the train conductor came by and we asked for a picture with him. I wonder if he thought Owen didnt have arms at all!?! He did kinda look at him strangley.......whatever.



The ride was very short for the money we forked out but we made it up with the little pony's they had in a pen to pet. They were so cute the one in the picture is only a month old and his name was oreo! Owen loved him can you belive how tiny he is standing next to owen i am just thankfull he didnt want to ride him with all the rodeo action we got in our house!



Hope your memorial was as fun filled as ours!

Whats old is new again....

So my old job Mountain Peaks called and asked me to fill in for a couple days. At first i was thinking it would be impossible, then i got sitters figured out for Owen and it was kindof exciting! I was thinking about what i would wear,and how nice it would be to get out of the house and be a working girl again. Until i was on my way there....it was all very surreal and i started to feel kinda sick. What if i was like those horrible Substitutes in school who didnt know crap and everyone hated. What if i was slow and didnt know how to work the systems anymore or messed up on checking someone in. Well lucky for me the new girls upfront are very nice especially Angie! We got along great and i really wish she had been there when i was. The phone system had changed so that slowed me down some, but i feel really good that i now know i can still do the job! It gave me a renewd sense of hope that i will be able to go back someday but that i am thankfull to be home with my Owen. Especially when i had to tell patients one of the docs was booked till Aug! Yep those of you know who i am talking about and i got to see some familiar faces some good, some NOT GOOD!
So thanks Peaks for treating me so good and giving me a glipse into the working world again!
Owen didnt do so good on the first day and was a terror for my sweet grandma and Aunt Tiff but the second day with my mom wasnt so bad.
We are thinking of putting him in a little pre-school type thing just 5 min from our house. Its for 3 year olds only and doesnt really focus on the school stuff so much as social skills. I love my kid but me being home doesnt really give him the skills he needs right now so its only 2 hrs 2 days a week and that will be good for both of us. I will let you know how it goes!
The music on my page i stole from my friend Amy L. Thanks for the great idea Amy! Although i will admit the first time i linked on it scared me to death! Hope you all like the music and if not then too bad and turn down your volume and make your own!
Hope you are all doing well and know that i love ya tonz.
Ps: i still feel great but i am not excited for the egd next month. I will post soon after to let you know
Pps: I am so excited Jeremy will actually be home for Memorial day! We are going to see Thomas the train at the Heber Creeper. Love the kid stuff!

Owenator is 3!



Owen's birthday this year was a big deal. He is finally at that age when there is excitment and the thrill of presents and candles! Jeremy and i had gotten a few things in disneyland to keep until the party and i am so glad we did! He loves playing with anything pirates, so we found these mickey mouse pirate figures and he loves it! We also got him this great wooden barn with animals and even a fence. I am proud to say i painted it myself and it doesnt look like he did it!
Owen has gotten so big all the sudden! Everyone says how tall he is and how much he looks like Jeremy. He does look pretty tall but i didnt realize how much util my friend Elaina brought over her little boy Brock who is only 6 mo old and Owen begged to hold him. He sat on the couch and held him like such a little man. He even played pic-a-boo with him SOOOOO cute! My little boy isnt so little.....sad. He is learning to play by himself more but is very much a mama's boy and im sorry but im ok with that for now!
The spider man pic is from a father/son thing at the local library. Jeremy didnt tell me just let me see his face when he got home! I cannot believe he sat still for them to do it!
My mothers day was good too! Jeremy had to work but i got to sleep in and go out to dinner at Outback with my parents. Jeremy got off work and we got to spend sometime as a family before bed. I am so thankfull for all we have, and that Jeremy works so hard so i can stay home! Love ya honey!

More California Pics

California Dreamin...

So our trip was so wonderfull! The trip started a little strange though.. we woke up at 3am to get to the airport in time and check our bags all that jazz. Well we were driving in the very dark morning and just past the lindon-PG exit in the field we say this bright orange/yellow light as we got closer it was a fire...and it was on someones front porch!!! So of course we called 911 and they asked if we could meet them back where we saw it cuz they couldnt find it! So we turned around at AF and went back as fast as we could well being the worry wart i am i was freaking out we would be late for the plane. We drove back and couldnt see the flames or the house anymore being so dark you would think we could see some smoke or something but no! well we drove back and forth trying to tell 911 where we thought we saw it and finally pulled over at the exit and talked to the very frustrated police,firemen,and emt guys. So now i am really freaking out because its 430am we are still in pg and our plane leaves at 6am. Lucky for us we were not the only ones who called in about the fire and they let us go. Tender mercy i tell you!
So we got on the plane and had to sit there because the starter had gone out....sweet....my anxiety level by then was off the chart and i am really hot cause the cant turn on the air till we take off. The take off was terrifying and jeremy sitting by the window kept trying to talk to me. I couldnt even look at him for fear i would see out the window how high we were! I was over fairly qickly and the landing was smooth.
We got there very early and it was soooo hot already. We got our sweet mini van and headed off to the swap meet. It was pretty hot there about 90 so i didnt really enjoy walking around as much as i could have. I dont do well in the heat!
We got checked into our hotel and played in the pool Owen was so happy to be in the pool again! Whenever we drive by the one in provo he begs to go....hopefully we can this year!
The next day we went to disneyland and it was great not too hot and not as many people as there could have been. We didnt have to wait long at all and Owen was really good waiting in line.
He was crazy about the pirates ride and we went on it like 10 times! He was about 2 inches off of being able to ride some of the cooler rides like thunder mountain...the kid has no fear! He loved the madderhorn and the safari ride in the boat. He was really cute with mickey too! He told him he loves to watch his cartoon show. Owen even got to do the hokey pokey with mary poppins and bert. We went to California Adventures the next day and that was ok but the food sucks over there and owen was more honery. I did go on the freakiest coaster called california screamin and boy did i! I did it so my sweet husband could have some fun and it was worse than any nightmare i have ever had! The shear speed alone was enough to kill me but im pretty sure the g force that shoved my inerds up on the 1st drop wasnt good for my liver or spleen!
We went down to Huntington Beach and walked down picking up sea shells.
Walked up and down the shops along there and then went down to Laguna where we spent the rest of our time shoping and body boarding. It was very relaxing and nice weather. Owen would have dug in that sand to china if i let him. He loved feeling it between his fingers. I say a humpback whale but no-one was around so they all think i was lying. Whatever!
We had a great time till we came home and heard about that poor man getting eaten by a shark!
Yea no more ocean for me.
We had a great time! We told owen we can go back when he is 5 but he's gotta dring all his milk and eat lots of veggies so he can be tall enough! So far its working!
Hope you like the pics!
