Saturday Events

Today was the annual Spud Day down in Shelley. I have been to it every year since I can remember. We always went to the parade in the morning hurried over to get in line for a bake potato and then walk around and wait for the spud tug to start. I am sad to say that this year we had to miss it. Austen and Tanner had a football game up in Sugar City so we had to miss it so that they could go to their game. They did really good I was very proud of both of them. After the game we came home warmed up from the rain and then headed down to the Demolition Derby. I love going to it, every year me and my sisters say that we would love to race in the mini car heat. I told Steph that I don't think I could do it I would be laughing way to hard to concentrate on what I was suppose to be doing. We sit and laugh and the cars out there, can you imagine how hard we would be laughing if it was us on the other side we would look like a bunch of tards out there. Anyways it is fun to go and watch and the kids enjoy it, Jake loved the loud cars and thought it was pretty cool. Here are a few pictures from our day.

Austen got 4 stickers on his helmet today for tackling.
Jake thinking that he is rolling down the hill like the other kids, but
little does he know that he is crawling and not rolling.
Jake playing with the kids during the game.
I know that I post a lot about my boys football games, but right now that is my life and I love watching them play, they grow so fast so you have to take in every little minute that you can, because before you know it they are gone and doing their own thing. I just want my 3 boys to know how much they mean to me and how much I love them. Way to go Austen and Tanner you did awesome today and Jake you were such a good boy.

My Sweety

I got tagged the other day by Steph. I am excited since it all about Mike!
Where did you meet? A girl that worked with me set us up on a blind date, I can honestly say it was love at first site.
How long did you date before you where married? We went on our first day in May and married in December so about 6-7 months.
How long have you been married? 5 wonderful years this December.
What does he do that surprises you? Love it when he cleans the house when I am gone and I come home to a spotless house ( even the is laundry done).
What is your favorite feature of his? I love his hands they are so strong, I feel so protected when I hold them.
What is your favorite quality of his? There is so many that I could name, but I have to say patience, he is one of the most patient people I know.
Does he have a nickname for you? Yes, he calls me honey or sweetie.
What is his favorite color? Turquoise Blue loves the colors of the Miami Dolphins.
What is his favorite Food? Mike loves a good steak and prime rib, but one thing about Mike is that he will eat anything that you give him and he loves to try new things.
What is his favorite sport? I would have to say that in number one favorite sport is Fly Fishing, he could spend hours on the lake fishing and catching fish and then letting them go he loves to fish, but hate eating it (crazy I know). He also likes to hunt, and watching Monday Night football.
When and where was your first kiss? About 1 month of dating and he was taking back to my car at Sportsman's Warehouse and before I got out of his truck he leaned over and gave me a kiss. My heart melted and I know I was in love.
Favorite thing to do as a couple? Just spending time together, nice dinner and movie or just a little drive to enjoy each others company.
Do you have any children? 3 wonderful boys: Austen 10, Tanner 9, and Jake 16 months.
Does he have a hidden talent? Can fix anything I may through his way.
How old is he? 28
Who said" I love you" first? Mike did and I can remember it like it was yesterday because it meant so much to me.
What is his favorite type of music? He pretty much listens to it all I don't think he really has a favorite just depends on his mood.
What do you admire about him the most? There is so much that I admire about my husband from being a GREAT father and husband to a hard worker and providing well for his family, he loves and supports us in everything that we do and I love him for that. He is also such a great example to our boys and his love for the church is amazing.
Do you think he will read this? Not unless I show him.

State Fair 2008

This last week we had the chance to go down to the fair and enjoy some time together has a family. The boys had a blast riding on the rides and enjoying all the yummy food. I have to say I love going to the fair, not quite sure why, yet to figure that one out. But as long as I can remember we always would head down to the fair grab something yummy to eat, walk through the building and then head for the rides. I guess maybe I want my kids to have the great memories of the fair like I have or maybe I am still a kid at heart. Jake's 1st corn dog from the Fair

Austen 1st Science Project

Austen had his first Science project for the year. I am sure there will be more to follow. He was so funny he came to me on Sunday after noon, a little nervous may I add and told me that he had a project due tomorrow. I asked him what he had to do and he say make the earth and show the layer inside the earth. He had to use things that we had around the house, that was one of his teachers rules. I had a few things and this is what he came up with I was very proud of him. I just need to say that he was so excited when him and his dad finished it last night at 11:00. So here it is his finished projected made out of Fruit Loops.

The center is crushed Fruit Loops

He was so proud of his work

When he came home from school, I asked what his techer thought and she told him, that he did a very good job and it looked yummy! Way to go Austen I am very proud of you.

Camping over Labor Day !

My parents went up to Green Canyon for Labor Day to camp for the weekend. We decided to go up Saturday for the day and let the kids go swimming and play around the camp site for awhile. It was so nice to get away and relax. We had a great time swimming, had a wonderful dinner and just enjoyed time with family.
