Stress Relief


Today I gave Dawson a bath which is generally a point of the day when I do not have to worry about much because he loves his bath time. I heard Jett start to wake up and left the room to grab him up out of his bed. All of a sudden I hear an "Oops!" come from the bathroom... I ran in to find a heavenly scent permeating from the tub and Dawson holding one of my containers for sugar scrub and the oils from the scrub floating atop the bath water. He had a huge smile on his face in spite of the fact that he knew that I was not happy, which happens more than I'd like to admit. I was flustered and wanted to scream. That was until I noticed the kind that he had selected to spill everywhere and once I noticed that, I thought to myself... 'Heavenly Father must have a sense of humor'. I am sure he is cracking up at this moment and I began to laugh. It was the kind that is supposed to help with stress relief. I immediately went to grab my camera to capture this moment since I felt that it was a reminder to me to enjoy every moment of my life.

P90X Progress


I am trying to keep everyone updated as to my progress on P90x to not only to keep myself motivated but to motivate others. So far with the P90x workouts I have been faithful for 51 days now and lost 10 pounds. I would like to clarify I am not doing the diet, only the workouts. I think that the 10 pounds is great but more importantly I feel amazing and have so much more energy. My body has changed so much and I am so much stronger and able to do many of the things I was unable to in the beginning. Everyone is always asking to see before and after shots and I have been taking photos of myself in a bathing suit once a week since I started just to see the progress myself but nobody will ever see those but me and maybe my husband, sister and mother. I did find these pictures to give you an idea of my progress.

Surprise Utah Trip & Swing

video

This last week my mom and I decided the night before we left to go and visit my sister for her birthday in Utah. The following morning we left for our adventure. It was a long drive I think that we decided it took us about 14 hours on the way there because we stopped quite a bit to keep everyone happy and comfortable. Despite the long trip, the boys did amazing. I can really only think of one little melt down Dawson had and that was actually when we were stopped and in WalMart. Jett was sleeping or very happy unless he was hungry or poopy. It was actually very pleasant, well except for the aching butt that we received from sitting in the car all day. We arrived at Aletha's house around midnight and ran around to the back to jump on her trampoline and gave her a call and asked her to come outside to join us... she had no clue that we were coming. The following day we went to a place called Kangaroo Zoo it was a huge warehouse type building with over sized bouncy castles and slides. It was so fun and we spend almost the entire day there running around and having fun.

At one point Aletha and I decided to race through a few obstacles and ending at the bottom of a slide. I decided I was going to win no matter what I had to do and I threw my body over the top of the slide and went head first into the slide where my face was squished right into the slide causing my neck twist and to pop very loudly. At first I thought I might have broken my neck but I tried moving and I was able to so I figured it was okay and got up to confirm that I had won. I DID! Yay me! I am still sore from this little incident but it was totally worth it!

We also went to Ikea... it is my new favorite store. My sister had this really cool indoor swing in her house for her kids that she had purchased at Ikea. I decided that I also needed one. I put it up yesterday as you can see from the video. So cool Dawson loves it... he was watching tv when I recorded him so he was a little distracted.

Anyway we were only able to stay for a couple of days but it was totally worth the trip to see one of my very favorite people in the world my sister!! LOVE YOU LETH!

My New Little Jumper










It seems like just the other day that we were putting Dawson in this little jumper. Jett is such a little chunker, oh I just LOVE chubby babies! I always go and compare photos of Dawson and Jett at the same age... I was looking through photos of Dawson when he was this age and found this other cute little smiley one. These are both of their first really smiley photos so I thought I would post them both.

A Few New Pictures







This summer has been really great! We try to spend time outside as much as possible but it seems like I get hot really easily and I think it cant be good for my babies so we end up coming in fairly quickly.
Last week Dawson was able to go to Texas with Dan, Lisa and Parker to a Budge family reunion that we were unable to attend. They were gone from Early Thursday morning until the following Monday evening so needless to say I struggled with a little separation anxiety however it seems as if Dawson did not care one bit that he was away from us. It probably helped that they were busy doing really fun things the ENTIRE trip.
Today we were playing outside drawing with chalk and blowing bubbles and I decided to grab my camera and snap a few shots of the boys... Jett is now 3 months old and I need to do some real shots of him, I guess I just need to stop making excuses and just do it... but for now here are a few to hold everyone off.
