Growing up too fast!

So I decided to start the transition from the crib to a big boy bed a little early. I didn't want to have to worry about the transition after Aaliyah is born. My mom found him the cutest little twin bed on KSL. I haven't gotten all of the decor for it, so I will post pictures later. But we set it up today and he was so so excited!!!! Just look at that cheeser grin...Well tonight he fell asleep in the car ride home, so I brought him in his bed and changed his diaper. He woke up and looked around, when he realized he was in his NEW bed he gave me the biggest smile. He said "mommy, mommy, mommy". And then puckered up his lips and gave me a kiss. He then continued to look around and give me more kisses. It was seriously the most precious moment ever. I tried to get a pic of him sleeping but the flash was too bright...Okay okay okay. Of course I had to keep walking in there and stare at him sleep. Is this normal? So I finally got a picture of him sleeping. So precious.
I'll have to let you know how it goes in the morning. I hope he wakes up happier, warmer, and more refreshed.

Family Pictures '09

Baby girl at 30 weeks...
Kayden 6 years old, Skylar 21 months old

Me and my hubby.
It was quite a stressful foto session... but I think that they turned out good. Kayden was the hardest, which was a surprise to me. Man them older kids have that fake smile down!!! You have to work hard to get a real one. LOL Christmas cards will be in the mail MOnday... I know I'm a slacker. That's why they say happy holidays instead of merry christmas :-)

Baby Girl's Fetal Echo

Well today was the un-anticipated fetal echo at Primary Children's Medical Center. They say that most times congenital heart defects are very rare to show up in more than one child. And that most times they are just flukes. Well, unfortunately in our family, this isn't the case. The echo showed that our baby girl has the exact same heart defect that our little sky sky had. A ventricular septal defect right next to the valve. I get to go back on January 8th for a follow up echo and we hope that the defect will be closed. If not, we will do all of the appointments for echo's, ekg's and dr. appointments that we did with sky. They will give her 6-8 months to close it on her own. If it doesn't close, well then we know what happens. She will have surgery and everything will be all better. I mean... honestly... look at the little terror in the pictures above. You would never guess that he was a heart baby. He is happy, healthy, and a STUD!!! And she has one thing that he didn't have... an amazing older brother who knows exactly what she is going through. I think that they will have a special little bond that will get her through whatever lies ahead. Wish us luck.

Snakes and Santa!!

So this past weekend we went to a Sub for Santa party at one of tyler's work buddies house. It was pretty fun. There was Santa that came and a reptile girl that came. There were tons of snakes for the kids to see... and the grand finale was a 150 lb snake. Skylar really liked that one. He played with it and then sat on it and bounced!!!! YIKES. I hurry and grabbed him and we left. I didn't want that snake to turn on him. But before we left I put him on Santa's lap... that lasted about 0.2 seconds. All in all, it was fun.

20 Months Old!

I can't even believe that my baby is 20 months old!!! Where did the time go? He has been so much fun since the day he was born. We went to the OB doctor appt today and got to hear our little girls heartbeat and everything is going good. I remember going to all of the doctors appointments for him, wondering what he was going to be like or look like... and now I know. I know that 3 1/2 months seems far away now, but before you know it... I'm going to be doing our little girls 20 month old post. I'm trying to soak up as much of every single moment as I can. Sky is talking so much more everyday. And yes there are actually words that I understand. His two newest words are "dank-ooo" = thank you. and "Bayyyyy-B" =baby. He can also say I don't know, mama, dada, nana, baba (bottle), candy (thanks to halloween), uh-uh (no), and of course YEAH! Every morning he wakes up screaming to get out of his crib or screaming MAMA! Then he gets up, grabs a pair of shoes, and we go down stairs to have a bottle of milk and a bowl of cereal. He is also obsessed with brushing his teeth and doing his own hair. What else? So far his favorite toy is his pony and cowboy hat. He rides it at least once a day and always wears his cowboy hat sideways and pulls it down as far as it will go so that he has to tilt his head to see. He seriously has so much personality and is so fun to have around. I can't imagine life without him and cannot wait to see him and his little sister together. Seriously feel blessed...

Halloween 2009

This year for Halloween we went to Adam and Taryn's again so that the kids could go trick or treating together. This was our year to have Kayden, so he was also able to go. Skylar was a sailor, Kayden was a GI Joe, Carson was a Power Ranger, and Rylee was a bee. They were all super cute. Me and Ty also dressed up as a Geisha and a Scary Butcher. And Adam and Taryn dressed up as their classic scary clowns. It was a fun night. The kids passed out in the car on the ride home and that gave me and Ty the opportunity to watch a scary movie together. We watched Friday the 13th 2009. It was good. I actually went to bed scared and asked tyler to go get my phone charger downstairs. Of course he called me a baby, I called him a choice name, and I built up the courage to go get it myself. He's the man of the house. This requires him to kill spiders, lock doors at night, check out scary noises in the house, and GET ME MY PHONE CHARGER WHEN I AM TOO SCARED TO MYSELF! Goodness, obviously he didn't read the rule book. I guess we have to work on this. :-) All in all... a good Halloween. Oh I forgot to mention how hilarious it was to watch Skylar try and keep up with the big kids running from house to house. If he asks, it wasn't me that told you all that he kept eating it every so many steps. He kept saying "Feet don't fail me now, Feet don't fail me now!"

1st Grade Parade

He's getting big! Today we went to Kayden's 1st grade Halloween Parade. He was GI Joe... I guess I'm not down with the whole "new age" GI Joe, because I would have never guessed that. Either way, he made it look good. And of course my little sky sky was a sailor and was so adorable. Had to keep my eye on him, I think some people wanted to steal him jk. He actually wore the costume that my brother adam wore when he was his age. So there is a fun fact. Can't wait for Halloween day...

Thriller with the Girls

Last night I went out with the girls to see Thriller put on by Odyssey Dance Theatre at Kingsbury Hall. Can I just say, What a fun night! We started off at the Pie, which doesn't always cooperate with my tummy and then went to the show. It was pretty funny how they had scary people walking around the theatre and my friend Stacey was freaking out. She would cover her face and they would come and target her of course. I think even one of them sniffed her hair. LOL. The show was great. We said we were students and got 2 for 1, so got the 45 dollar seats and paid less than what we were planning on. So great deal. All of the dances were so fun and even the improv's in between were funny. We all had fun, but I think my baby had the most because she was dancing the entire time in my belly. Well the show is on until October 31st, so I suggest you go see it. Here is the link to watch their promotional video.... Click on the play sign to watch the video. It actually is a great preview to the show.

Cornbelly's 2009

Okay so I think that we are making it tradition to go to Cornbelly's out at Thanksgiving Pointe with grandma and grandpa Sanchez. It is always so much fun. The weather even cooperated with us today and we didn't even have to wear jackets. There was so much stuff for the kids to do from corn mazes, to tractor rides, to bounce houses, and even a little face painting. I could go on and on about the activities, but the only thing that matters is the kids had fun, we wore them out, and they had good naps afterwards. Thank you so so much Grandma and Grandpa Sanchez for such a fun day and for continuing this new tradition. Oh and P.S. Is this a preview of what our little girl is going to look like (look at sky with a wig LOL)

Our 2 Year Anniversary!

Well today was our 2 year anniversary... I know, I could barely believe that it has been two years. I have got to say that I totally understand why they say the first few years of marriage are your hardest. There are so many new adjustments to be had, especially when there are children involved. We have had our fair share of ups and downs, but I really think soon things are going to just be on the up and up. Tyler and I really have a special connection and love eachother so much. Look at how many obstacles we have already overcome. I feel so lucky to have him in my life and I love him lots and lots. To many more years together, even if there are some bumps, I'm up for them as long as they are with you. Mwah!

P.S. We're celebrating when Ty gets back! Woohoo.

Fall Baseball

I guess I can also do a post for Kayden's fall baseball. He has been playing for the past few weeks and has only a few more games left. It is actual baseball this year, not t-ball, so he is a beginner. I think that we need to take him to the batting cages so he can learn to not be afraid of the ball, but this will all be in good time. He is the youngest on his team and many of the other boys have played before. Practice practice practice. Skylar is a handful at the games. He tried to run out on the field, so we are chasing him constantly. But it is all good fun. Way to go kayden!

Tractor Ride, Maze and Pumpkins Oh My!

Today the fam decided to go do a fun fall activity, so we went to Wheeler Farm! We were able to ride the tractor around, feed the ducks, see the farm animals, find our way through the maze, and finally pick out a pumpkin. Skylar was free, so he didn't get a pumpkin... PSYCHE! We snuck him one... oops did I say that out loud? I think that we will be carving them tonight, so I guess I will have to post pictures of that. That is one thing that is great about wood floors, is carving pumpkins. It's an easy clean up. Wish us luck.

Sports... Sports... Sports

So this Fall is going to be SO SO busy for our little man Kayden. He has been signed up to do baseball and flag football. His baseball falls on Monday, Wednesday and Saturdays. And his football falls on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturdays. Let's just say that it is busy for everyone... and unfortunately we are unable to make it to all of his games. Which really makes me sad, because I always said I would never miss my kids stuff, but when its 5-6 days a week, you really have no choice. Anywho. He is really doing a good job. I have gone to a football game and I think he really enjoys it. He can stay involved constantly and doesn't have to sit around and wait his turn. He'll be really good if he sticks with it. The biggest thing we are working on is running the right direction LOL. Baseball he is also doing really well. He is the smallest guy on the team and it's his first year, so there is a lot to learn. But he tries his best and puts his all in it. It's really quite cute to see him grow up and start to get involved in team sports. I think that they are important to keep kids out of trouble and to meet good friends. There are 7 more weeks of chaos... so wish us all luck, but mostly Kayden.

Update On Our Little Girl

So last Wednesday I had my ultrasound with the doctor's office. I was so nervous that I was going to go and they were going to say it was a boy. That would have been fine, but we have gotten ourselves so excited for a girl. Well they didnt, she is definately a girl.... And everything checks out. She has fingers, toes, healthy heart, brain, spinal cord, etc. I think that I could even tell that she has my sloped nose. I can't wait to meet her... and I know that tyler is even more excited than me. Today he went to the store and bought her an outfit, jammies, and a blanket. He was never this excited for his little boy... I think that this little girl is going to make his heart melt. Other cute things that he does is say bye to her, rubs my tummy in the mornings and always ask me "are you excited?" His excitement makes my excitement even higher. I can't wait to bring her home... okay I can. Because I still want some alone time with my baby boy for a little longer.

New Port Beach Vacation '09

So a few weeks ago... yeah I am a procrastinator at blogging lately.... we went to Newport Beach California with my mom's side of the family. It is our 2nd year going and we hope to have many more. We left on a Saturday and didn't get home until the following Sunday, so it was plenty long. We were able to do a lot of fun things this year. We did less theme parks this year, because last year was a little chaotic. We went to Knottsberry Farm for the first time and that was a blast for everyone.... but me. It was fun seeing everyone ride the rides... but I wanted to ride too. Instead I stayed off the rides and kept brewing us a baby girl. Next year. The other theme park we did... of course was DISNEYLAND! That one is my favorite because my baby... well both babies can ride almost all of the rides. Sky really liked the Dumbo ride. It is so fun to see him having fun. Tyler and Kayden were off riding bigger and scarier rides. I believe they enjoyed Indiana Jones... Splash Mountain... and I can't remember other names. Oh and P.S. Me and Sky went and saw Little Einsteins live... he thought it was the coolest thing ever! Aside from going to theme parks we went to Laguna Beach. Here we basked in the sun, swam in the ocean, and did a little shopping. It's nice to see an ocean for a change. Although I don't like to swim in them... yuck! They make you stinky, sticky and dirty... and not to mention your hair goes gross. But of course the boys liked it (tyler and kayden). Other than that, we just hung out at the resort. And when I say just hung out, there is a basketball court, sand box, playground, swimming pool, hottub, life size chess, gym, and arcade to name a few. It was a great vacation. Thanks nana and pop!

It's a Girl!!!

We went back to fetal fotos today and got the great amazing news. It's a girl!!!!! I can't even tell you how excited we are. I already have plans to buy flowers and bows and paint her nails... and yes I don't care what some people think... I'm getting her ears pierced with tiny little diamonds. I have always had my ears pierced and I think little girls look so cute. Tyler I think was in shock. He has two boys... so a girl is going to be quite an adventure for him. One of the first things he said was "You are going to have to change the diapers." LOL. I think he is afraid of girlie parts, guess he is going to have to get over that. Well I can't wait for her to get here. Anywho. Here are some pictures.

Our Precious Bun in the Oven...

So we went to Fetal Fotos on Saturday... but no luck on finding out the gender. My sweet baby is just like its mother.... modest LOL! It has already proven to be a lot like Skylar... a mover. The problem wasn't getting the baby to move, it was getting it to open its legs. But good news... The heart is beating and there are 10 fingers and toes and 2 arms and 2 legs... of course connected to a body with a head and neck. I felt like a little bad that my mom, pop, kaylee, the boys and tyler all came and we didn't find out the gender.... BUT we are going back and 1130 today to try again. So what am I doing to prepare? Well I am up and about, ate a good breakfast (lucky charms and toast= lots of sugar for movement), and I am going to drink a glass of OJ just before the appt. So this baby is going to bouncing off the walls and won't be able to keep its legs shut. LOL. Well I'll let you know how it goes... wish us luck. Here are a few ultrasound pics of our new addition...

Summer Catch-Up...

I've kind of been slacking on blogging, so I thought I would just do a really big blog and try and include the highlights.
So the first one, my family decided to go to the Salt Lake County Fair a few weeks ago. It was pretty fun, not as fun as the Utah State Fair, but still fun. It was also freakin expensive, to the point of ridiculousness. But the boys enjoyed themselves and that is really all that matters when it comes down to it. Kayden rode the bull and pulled quite the crowd. Sky got to ride a REAL pony. But ma forgot to dress him in his new cowboy boots... woops! And then Kayden made sure that he took his little bro-ha on a ride so they did the baby boats. It was pretty dang precious. Sky loved ringing the bell over and over, and of course big brother showed him how. It was pretty fun. Unfortuneatly we didn't go the demolition derby because I didn't think Sky would last, hopefully next year!
Okay I have to add this picture, because I just love it. We went to Jeanna's (an old friend) birthday party at Murray Park and her dad gave Sky a piece of watermelon. I didn't think that it was that good of an idea at first, but I thought, what the heck, let's see what happens. He LOVED it and ate it all the way down to the green part to where I got him a new one. He is getting so big! I can't even believe it. And did I mention HANDSOME. He's going to be a heart breaker.
We also went to the cabin for Kayden's birthday last weekend. It was pretty cold and crappy weather, but we still had a good time. I got to catch up on some sleep. The boys played with the bb gun and rode the four wheelers. Sky was a little grouchy, who am I kidding, REALLY grouchy. He is getting his last few teeth in and these ones must be really painful. Poor guy. Kayden got an ipod and a guitar for his birthday. I think that he had a good time.
Okay one more pic. This 24th of July... yeah like a month ago, we went to my brothers to watch some fireworks. Sky got to do his first sparkler and loved it. Although I would say that poppers are his favorite. It was cute and fun to see him experience something new.
Well California is coming up in a few weeks, which is becoming our new end of summer tradition. We are really excited to go to Disneyland, Knottsberry Farm, hang out at the beach, see my favorite cousin, and see some of ty's family. Yay! I'm excited.

Our Little Peanut

Today was my first doctor's appointment... but it was nothing like last times. I did the usual vital signs, weight (less than last time, go me!), pee in the cup, blood draw, and meet with the nurse. When I saw the doctor he kind of scared me. He felt my uterus and had a weird look on his face and then looked for a fetal heart tone. He couldn't find it anywhere... So then he really got concerned. I've never had anything go wrong, so my heart just dropped. He was the only doctor there today so he was extremely busy and behind. But this is why I continue to go to Dr. Merrill because he is always there for me and always remembers me. He took the time to go over to the ultra sound room, warm up the machine and do the ultrasound himself. Their ultrasound tech was not in today. THANK GOODNESS we saw the baby and its little heart beating away. How many doctors would really do that for their patients. I just LOVE Dr. Merrill. He put me at ease and also printed off a few of the pictures for me to take home. The reason he couldn't find the heart beat is because I am only 8 weeks and 5 days along about. I had calculated 11 weeks... oops. I guess I don't ovulate when I think I do. So here is the first picture of our little peanut. God love it! So if calculations are correct, I am due February 21st, 2010.

Primary Children's

So today we had Skylar's 6 month cardiology check up. I really thought that it would be no big deal... boy was I in for a treat! When we first arrived Skylar was just fine. We were just hanging out in the waiting room. Then they called our name and we went back to the echocardiogram room and the memories must have flooded back because he started throwing himself around and screaming bloody murder. I felt SO SO bad. And to top it off... mom left the dang bottle in the car. So I had to leave him with a stranger... a staff member... to run (literally run) out to the car. I didn't have any help today... all by myself. SO that was another new experience. Anyways. So we kept trying to warm sky up to the echo machine, but he wouldn't have it. We sang Pat-a-cake, Little Bunny Foo Foo, and Sunday Morning... once those were over.... He was back to throwing a fit. The echo tech finally said enough is enough. I thought they were going to have to do a sedated echo, but luckily we got enough pictures to see what Dr. Mart wanted to see.

So then we went to the room to wait and see the doctor. They had to do a 12 lead EKG on him and he didn't like that either. Wow, but she started blowing bubbles and that seemed to be the trick. The blood pressure cuff... what were we thinking? There was no way he would let us do that, so they didn't get a BP.

Needless to say, after all of that, everything looked GREAT! I am so so so so so happy. There were no funky heart rhythms. The hole that was present right after surgery had been sealed shut. His heart function was excellent and his growth was excellent. I am so pleased and so grateful that they were able to fix my babies heart. Technology these days just blows me away.

One last thing. Since my first child had a heart defect, every child thereafter is considered high risk for congenital heart disease. So once I am 6 months pregnant, so about three more months, I will have to go to Primary Children's Medical Center for a fetal echocardiogram and ultrasound. This is bittersweet. I think that it will be pretty neat to see my baby's heart function inside of me in such detail, but at the same time, I don't want to know if this baby has the same defect because it will just stress me out. Of course we are hoping and praying that this baby is perfect, which they will be right? Anywho. I'll keep you updated when we do that. Sky also has a check up again in 6 months. He's a champ!

4th of July

For the 4th of July we went to Murray Park and BBQ'd and watched fireworks. Last year we were at the lake, so this was Skylar's first time seeing fireworks. He thought that they were the coolest ever. The finale scared the crap out of him, but other than that he was walking back and forth pointing at the fireworks and babbling. I swear he was saying "look ma, what the, fireworks, lights in the sky, boom, big boom!" Ha ha, some kind of babble right? It was a fun night. Wish I could just get feeling better....

There's a Bun In the Oven!!!

Yes it is true, Ty and I just recently found out that we have another child on the way. We thought that it would take a while to get pregnant, but call it luck, pregnant on the first go around. That makes me about 9 weeks pregnant and puts me due at the beginning of February 2010! We are really excited!

So how's this pregnancy the same/different from the last? Well I actually get to SLEEP all through the night... and since my nausea is so bad, Ty gets to shoot out of bed at night when Skylar screams.... what a saint. The nausea is definately the same... although this time they prescribed me zofran. Can I just say that zofran is my savior?

SO boy or girl??? I really have no idea! Not even an inkling one way or the other. Some days I think that it is a boy and other days I think that it is a girl.... Which do I want? Either... really! As long as they are happy, healthy, and arrive safely, I will take them. Every little baby is a blessing.
Anywho... We will be finding out the sex of the baby, but not until 16weeks. So I'm saving my pennies to go to Fetal Fotos again... that was so cool!

Tyler is also very excited... he got me a present...

Father's Day

Father's day this year was just like any other. We started off at my dad's house and had some good breakfast. My dad has just recently remodeled his basement and put darts and a pool table down there. So now all the guys do is battle it out. My dad is pretty much unbeatable on the pool table... but let me just say that I did beat him in darts. Ha ha ha. It was fun. I think everyone really enjoys going out there. After all... he is grandpa gary. Happy Father's day pops! You're a great father... and an even greater grandpa. We love ya.

And then later that day we went to my brothers house for yummy dessert. We had better than sex cake and a yummy grasshopper ice cream pie. Believe me... I didn't need that. We gave Pop his presents and then headed on home. I have to give phil a shout out too... you are a great step-father, father-in-law and grandpa. We love you to pieces too :-)

And last but not least... ALL day we celebrated tyler being a father. I really got lucky on this one. He is so great to these boys. He may be a little too soft hearted some times, but really, I think that he always does what he feels is right. We love you Tyler and are so happy that we have you as a part of our family. Hugs and kisses....

A fun-filled busy DAY!

Like I said... I'm a little behind on this blogging thing.
So last week... or the week before, My mom and I took the kids to Jungle Jim's and then Liberty Park. Taryn was there, but then had to leave for other things. I thought that Liberty Park was the highlight of the day, but then again that is my favorite park to take the kids. Carson and Rylee have never been there before so they thought that it was pretty cool. You get a little bit of wild life, the fair, and a huge playground all at one place... not to mention the 1$ sno cones there too. We had a pretty good day. Skylar would probably say that his favorite was sitting on mom's lap and swinging. Okay okay, that was mom's favorite, but I bet he liked it. The kids had a lot of fun and so did I. I think that hanging out with a bunch of kids almost lets you be a kid again to. The life of no worries... got to love it.

Like brother.... like brother.

Now that Skylar is getting older, we can really see how much kayden and skylar are really alike. I think that skylar thinks that kayden is just about the coolest thing that has ever walked the face of this earth. To hear skylar yell kayden's name... or at least what we think is kayden's name... is just about the cutest thing. He wants to be right by his side all the time.

A week or so ago we decided to get out the 4-wheeler. Big brother wanted to take sky on a ride and show him what the 4 wheeling life is all about. Of course we put it on the grass... that's all we need is sky getting another bonk somewhere on him. He was laughing and loved every minute. Looks like I have to boys that are ALL boys!

Off to 1st Grade...

So I decided that I am EXTREMELY behind on updating my blog. Ever since I graduated from school, I really have no reason to get on my computer at home. So let's throw a few updates out there...

A few weeks ago we went to Kaydens elementary to watch him graduate from kindergarten! Yay. He has done so great this year and we are so so proud of him. He has had many girlfriends and even got in trouble for a girl kissing him... ha ha. Not to mention, he has learned all of his letters, his seasons, how to read small words, and lets not forget.... well I'm sure I'm forgetting a lot. Those little turds stay pretty busy in school.

SO next year we start the grades... first grade! We know that he will just sail on through it...

San Diego May 2009

So for Memorial Day weekend we decided to be spontaneous and go to San Diego to visit Tyler's family. With my mom and brother on a cruise, the babysitters were scarce, so we packed up and left. It was such a great trip. The first night Rae, tyler's sister, had to work, so we took his mom down to Ocean Beach, which was about 5 minutes from Rae's house. It was really beautiful. I guess the peir in the background is the 2nd longest in the country or something. The next day we went to LegoLand. It was... well... intersting. Everything was made out of lego's basically. There was a really cool part, the heart of Lego Land that showed all of the big cities made out of lego's. It was actually very impressive. There was Vegas, New Orleans, New York, Georgetown, etc... OH!!! and SLC... ha ha just kidding. That would be cool to see a temple out of legos though, I must admit. So if you are wondering if we recommend LegoLand... no we don't. It was pretty boring and expensive!

The next stop on our trip was a night of some sight seeing. We went to Coronado Island and walked out on the dock and then drove to downtown San Diego to look at a huge war ship that they have turned into a museum. There was a statue of a nurse and a sailor kissing that Ty and I had to re-inact. It was pretty cool there. I would have to admit that I would LOVE to move there.

We liked the sight seeing so much that we spent the entire next day goin to see places. We started off at Cabrillo National Monument, which is where the european settlers first landed. This is also a huge military base and home of a huge military cemetary. The cemetary was cool to see on memorial weekend because there were literally thousands of gravestones and each one had an American flag on it. From this monument you could also see Mexican islands... that is how close we were to the border. I didn't want to get too close, they may not let me leave ha ha!

We ended our day at Mission Beach, which is just next to Ocean Beach and hung out with Tyler's uncle brian and his friends. And later that night Tyler's family came over. His Grandpa, step-grandma, Uncle brian, Younger Aunt Amanda. Debbie didn't make it because she was ill.
Our last day we went to Seal Beach. This is a beach that has a bunch of seals... go figure. It was neat to see the seals, but it kind of stunk there. LOL. But another neat place to see. I think that Tyler has turned me into a sight see'er. I really enjoyed the entire trip.Since Debbie was sick on Saturday night, we had to make sure that we stopped by her house before we left. It is craziness there. They have 14 cats, 2 dogs, and about 20 birds.... not exaggerating. But the kids loved seeing all of the animals, and of course their grandma.
The last night we stayed in Mesquite because we were exhausted to say the least. We woke up and swam and then drove home. We are doing this again in September, although that time with my family in Newport!!!! yaya
