The Past Few Days

I am really not enjoying this no laptop business. I miss my friend and hope she comes back soon. Here is a little update on our lives. We have had a really, really busy week.

  • The boys had their first swim lessons last week. They loved it. At first Andrew didn't want to get in the water at all. He wanted his life jacket on. It doesn't help that we would tell him he would drown if he ever got into the water without his life jacket...

  • We went to the temple last week. It had been way too long since our last visit. I loved it. Thanks to Jill for watching the Hoard so we could go!

  • Friday I got to spend the day at BYU education week working for the artist Sandra Rast. The great thing about it was that I got paid for the work, I got a break from my kids, I got to spend the day with one of my best friends, and I got a free outfit out of it. I LOVE the skirt, but we all agreed that the tank top was definitely not working. But for a free skirt I can wear anything for a day! BIG shout out to Kim for watching the crew the WHOLE day!

  • Right after our day at BYU, we headed up to a ward BBQ. It was a good time. I love my ward and have made a lot of new friends, which makes church going easier and a lot more fun.
  • Trent ran his first triathlon Saturday morning. It didn't work out that the Furious Five and I could watch, but he did a great job. His time was 1:20 and he came in 20th! I think that is dang good for a first race. He is already looking forward to his next one...
  • We had a delicious BBQ at Dodee's with the Jensen Fam. Always good food and the kids LOVE to play at Dodees! I am sad to say that by the end of last week I just didn't have the energy to take pictures, so no pics of this event.

  • Last but not least, we got the third season of Dexter. We love this show. Love it. We stayed up way too late watching. Once you start you can't stop.

So there you go. I hope you all enjoy it. Until next time...

YAY Trent! Way to go! That is a great time, especially for your first Triathlon. It sounds like you guys have been having a fun couple of days. We miss seeing you. I'm ready for our lives to slow down so we can see you guys and hang out again. Our weeks are just NOT the same without "MOVIE NIGHT". We miss you guys. CUTE SKIRTS by the way. I'm totally jealous I couldn't come. You girls look darling.

Congrats to Trent on the triathalon!

I absolutely love the picture of Oakley making a face at whoever is in the stroller at the ward BBQ. She is so dang cute and the framing of the picture is perfect. Paige & Morgan's individual shots are great too.

That is so amazing that Trent did so well on his triathlon, not that I'm surprised! I'm jealous that you got to go to Education Week, even if it was for one day! You guys look cute in your matching outfits!

Yes, Trent is my favorite computer man as well. Congrats to him! Are you going to do a post about it? The pics he posted on Facebook are incredible. Definitley post-worthy.

And I think it should count for something that you sleep with a computer wiz. Can't he do something about getting your laptop back in working order? I'm having withdrawals with you. I miss your daily updates.

Cute pic of your pre-guppies. Love the skirts, Dexter, and all your pictures.

I've been wondering when the updated post would come. Seems like you guys have doing a lot. And I'm with you on the lap top. I couldn't function without mine. Hang in there.
