Our BIG little boy

So Jeremy and I have been thinking of putting Owen into pre-school for some time now. I was always saying he is too little still and I thought he could wait till next fall but over the course of the summer we finally decided it was time. He just needs more socializing with kids his age and since Jeremy and i cant give him that it was time. We had done a lot of searching for a school we both liked and Owen would too. We finally came up with one. It has everything in it we wanted for him. He has been going for a week now. Only M,W,F from 9-11:30am. I thought even though we had many talks with him about it he would be kinda clinging to me and not want me to leave the first day but he did great! I will admit i waited as long as i could and then called to check up on him(it was only and hour). The teacher said he had a little aggression at first and there was some pinching but after the rules were explained he did great! Oh man it was the longest 2 1/2 hrs of my life. When we picked him up he was so proud of himself and was doing this great walk like john Travolta on Saturday Night Fever. It was awesome to see him come alive. Ever since he loves to talk about it and asks us everyday if today is a school day.

We also went to the doc for his yearly check up and he is in the 95% for height and 75% for weight. Not too bad.....but i am pretty sure we are going to be always shopping for shoes & pants for that kid! My dear sweet friend Samantha was in town and we got to hang out and do lunch without the kids which was so cool cuz i hadn't seen her for 2 years. Whenever i hear her voice it just makes me happy! She calls me Nicky so well i cant help but smile! :)

Sure do miss your guts Sam!

Riding Bumble-bee

So Owen is obsessed with Transformers! Everything yellow is a transformer just like bumble-bee from the movie! It is kinda funny cuz now even when Owen is not in the car with us we see a yellow car and say "transformer car!".

This weekend we rented a wave runner(which had to be yellow) from a little shop in Heber and went to Jordanelle Dam for the day. It was awesome to have Owen there with us! he definitely has more of Jeremy in him ,that kid has NO FEAR! We got a 3 seater with Owen in front, that kid kept yelling " Faster!, Go over there!, Jump us again dad!" I was on the back with these two crazies and begging them so slow down cuz I didn't want to fly off the back into the water! The only thing Owen didn't want to do is fall off. We kinda made the mistake of watching Shark Week with him a few days before so I am pretty sure he thought there was sharks in there waiting to get us. Oops bad parenting! This month is also our 6 year anniversary! Pretty sweet and we are more in love now than before. Its funny the things that change and stay the same in that amount of time. That was our anniversary outing: renting the wave runner, most of our outings include Owen these days and I love having him along with us to share in the experiences! After all day at Jordanelle in 100 degree weather we were all pretty tuckered and passed out in our beds after some much needed room service at a hotel in Park City. The next day we did the Alpine Slide which was more horrific than i remembered and the wind was blowing like crazy making me feel like I was for sure gonna die up there on that stupid ski lift. Hate it hate it hate it! Jeremy will never talk me into anything again. The only reason I finally gave in was for the picture you get at the top of your family riding the tram. We finally made it to the top and the dumb picture place was closed for the day.....i hate everyone! We did some shoping at the outlets after that and I found some sunday shoes for O that were on sale down from $49 to $11! I love a good deal! On the way home we stopped and FYE and picked up my reserved copy of Breaking Dawn so dont be surprised if i fall of the earth for the next few days! I am really gonna have to pace myself to enjoy this!
