Poineer Day BBQ...

My brother had a BBQ for Pioneer Day, and we had so much fun. I'm not sure who had more fun with the fireworks, me or my nieces and nephews. I love doing our own fireworks. Here are a few pics from the little get together...

I wish I would've taken a better pic of this, this is the treehouse my brother built. It is such a fun little playhouse and the kids couldn't get enough of it.

Cade took Mais up to the top, she loved being up there with the other kids.

Any Idea's?

So Mais has had the runs (sorry for too much info) for three days now and it is constant so what does that =? HORRIBLE diaper rash. I have seriously never seen anything like it. Her poor bum is so bloody and it continues to get worse. I have caked on the desitine and I have also tried perscription diaper cream and nothing is helping. So I'm wondering if anyone has any tricks up their sleeve on how to help her poor bum out? I swear nothing works because she is constantly needing a diaper change and all the wiping and the runs make it impossible to heal. Sorry if this is too gross, I just am so desperate.

I've been tagged!

I have to share six random thoughts about me. This is a hard one because I have to think of things to right about me and not Mais. So here goes...

1. I love having a big family (4 sisters, 4 brothers)

2. I love to Read

3. I barely graduated High School (not sure why I'm sharing that, but I was horrible at going to school, I sluffed all the time)

4. I plan to persue a bachelor's degree in Secondary Education

5. I started working when I was 15 and never stopped until I had Mais.

6. I secretly would love to have twins but shhh don't tell anyone.

Now I am tagging... Darbee, Danyle, Amber. So go on your blog and write 6 random thoughts about you.

Now I understand...

why people always said "just wait until she can walk." I have been saying how busy Mais is for about 3-4 months now and everyone kept telling me that. Now I get it, she is starting to really get the walking thing down now and she walks all over the house. Wow, right when I didn't think she could get any bussier sure enough she did. I cannot keep up with her, she's crazy. Not to mention she has had 2 really bad bonks in the past 5 days. Those are the worst and I know that there are lots more to come.

New Purchase:

This is Cade's newest purchase. With gas prices so high and how much he drives just to and from work he decided to get it to "save money." It is kind of dorky but we don't really care about that because this bad boy gets 80-100 miles to the gallon. Now he just needs to get a motorcycle license so he can put it to good use. Here is a pic of our lovely scooter...

July 4th...

Sorry it took me a while to post these, I had to get pictures from my sister in law (I have been so bad at remembering my camera lately). July 4th is one of my favorite holiday's I just love it every year. We have the yearly tradition of going to the parade with my in-laws and then doing a bbq at there house afterward. This year they set up some really fun water toys for the kids and they had a bawl. Here are some pics of our fun day...

We'Re ExCiTeD...

to announce that we are having another baby. I found out in Florida and we went to the doctor last week. I am almost 8 wks along so its still pretty early, but we have been excited to tell everyone. My due date is February 22nd.

So for the quick story of when I found out...
The night before I left for Florida I took a test and didn't tell Cade because I was thinking if it was positive I would wrap the test up and have him open it on Father's Day (I was gone over Father's Day), but the results came back negative. So the first day in Florida I was late so I decided to take another test and it was postive. So I picture messaged the test to Cade and said "Happy early Father's Day." He wrote back saying, "What does that mean? And why are you doing that without me?" So I had to call him and clarify (he thought it was joke, silly boy) but he is very excited and so am I.

Check out my Slide Show!


I finally got my Florida pics from my sister so I thought I would post some pics and tell you all about my trip. I went to Florida with my mom, my sister Kaylee, my sister Kara and her two girls Shelsey and Madison. I left Mais at home with Dad and had a really fun girls trip. Cade actually really enjoyed the time with Mais.

The first day there we hung out at the hotel and just did dinner because we got there late in the afternoon. The second day we went to Sea World which is my fav. If you have never been to Sea World in Florida, it has the funnest roller coaster ever, it's really intense. The third day we went to the beach, which is always a blast. We had the most fun just jumping the waves and doing all sorts of tricks into them, it was probably my favorite day. The forth day we went to Universal Studios which it was my first time ever going, I loved it so much. I am such a thrill seeker and I love doing rides so it was a perfect day for me. My favorite ride was Spider Man. The next day we had a pool day which was really nice to just be able to relax and be lazy for a day. The day I left my plane didn't leave until 5:30 PM so my sis took me shopping and then we did lunch. We had so much fun but I missed Cade and Mais so much, I was ready to come home by the end. Mais was a little clingy when I got home but surprisingly she did pretty good without me. I hope you enjoy the slide show!

BBQ at Grandpa's:

So about a week and a half ago we had a BBQ at my dad's for my nephew's birthday and we had so much fun just relaxing and visiting in the backyard. Mais had a blast in there little waterfall and especially in the cooler. Here are a few pics of the fun we had at Grandpa's. It was funny too because once she got out of the waterfall I took her diaper off and let her play naked, well that was a bad idea because she peed on their back porch, oops sorry dad.

I nEeD yOuR hElP...

I have been on the hunt for t-shirts for girls camp and am having a hard time finding some for a good deal. If any of you know anyone who does them for a good price, please let me know. Also does anyone know where I can find some sheetmetal to make magnet boards? It is coming down to the wire for Camp (only 5 wks until we go) and I still have a lot to do, hopefully it will all come together but any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks all!
