10 year anniversary baby!!!

Our bed was king sized and oh sooooooo comfy!

Josh was checking out all the "hot" spots for us to visit.

We didn't need a fire but it sure was pretty to look at.

For reasons other than the obvious, this bed was one of my favorite things about our room. It was soooooo big and soft!

This photo doesn't do it justice, but this tub was HUGE!!!!

This car was amazing!!! Someday honey!!

The car show was so cool!

We had so much fun just goofing off together.

This was an old bread truck. Its amazing how long things can last!
(Just like you and me hun!--- EEEW!! Cheezy!!)

We totally enjoyed every moment together.

These gas pumps still had the prices on them. . . 26 cents per gallon! Boy how times have changed!

The Saint George temple was one of our favorite stops. It had just been painted so it was EXTRA white. So beautiful up close.

Yes, I am doing the preggo pose. She is DEFINANTLY in there!

The love of my life. I am happy.

We were able to celebrate our 10th anniversary in Saint George, Utah this year. Josh's sweet mom watched our kids for us and we were off! We found a cozy little bed and breakfast in the historic part of the city called the Green Gate Village. This place was just adorable. We stayed in the Orson Pratt House in the Alexandra Suite. It was just perfect for us! It had an amazing king sized bed and a CRAZY huge jacuzzi bathtub. (side note: Don't turn on the jets until after you and the bubble bath are in, or else you will end up with WAY more bubbles than water!) The night we got there we went to the Tuakahn Theatre and saw "Thriller". It was amazing to be able to see a production of that magnitude up against a sandstone background. I would definantly recommend a show next time you are in the area.
The next morning, we woke up to the sound of roaring engines right outside our room. They were having an old hot rod car show. They blocked off our street and had 30 or so cars parked along both sides. The streets were packed with all sorts of people and there was a live band, yummy food, and games for kids. We wandered around that for a bit then decided to take a drive down to the temple. We found out that the temple is pained ever 10 years or so and it has just been painted a few months back. It truly was a sight to see up close. It was just so white! We went inside the visitors center and watched the new Joseph Smith movie. It was incredible.( Bring LOTS of tissues!) You must make some time to find out where you can see it. Absolutely amazing. After that, we headed over to the outlet malls and had lunch and ice cream. Cold Stone of course! We then headed back to the room to take a much needed nap! (Why is it that even as adults, taking a nap is just as enjoyable as going out and doing stuff?) Anyway, after our little rest, we drove up to the mountain nearby with "Dixie" written on it for the college in the town. It had spectacular views of the beauty of the area and the gorgeous temple. As the sun started to set, we drove back into town, got some dinner, and went back to our cozy room for one last night of kid-free relaxation!!
It was bittersweet the next morning as we were packing to leave. We were excited to see your kids again but sad because we are so seldom in a place together where we can truly just concentrate on each other.
This trip will always hold a special place in my heart. I love being married to my sweetheart Josh. I can't imagine my life without him. He takes such good care of me, the boyz, and our baby girl on the way. I am so blessed! These past 10 years have been an amazing and sometimes CRAZY ride, but I would do it all again in a heartbeat.
I love you Joshy, and can't wait to see what the next 10 years may bring!

School Carnival Aftermath

So, last week was the boyz' school fundraising carnival. They always get so excited to go and play games and win dinky little prizes and all sorts of candy. But this year, the thing they were the MOST excited about was having their faces and hair painted.They would have spent ALL their tickets on that if they could! Kolby had me spike his hair up so the color would look extra cool. He chose purple and orange and so did Jake, but you can't really see it too well on his hair. However, Jake was thrilled to get 2 ghosts put on his forehead. (why he chose that spot I have no idea) And Kolby chose to have 2 bats put on his cheeks. I am a slacker of course and forgot to bring the camera to the actual carnival itself, but you get the idea right? At the end of the day, the bathtub water was an amazing shade of something funky, and the boys once again resembled my clean, little, yummy smelling, regular colored people!!
What a fun day!

I've prided myself on never having a speeding ticket, but that all changed this past month. Of coarse I got it on the way to my sisters wedding, which really set the mood for me. I did happen to luck out at the traffic school though. The audio wasn't working and what was supposed to be a 2 hour class was cut to 1 hour. Half of the class got their tickets on the same new stretch of road that I did in P.G. To top it all off, they informed us that the speed limit will be going up on that very road. SOOOO CRAAAAPPY! To make good use of my time, I drew a killer picture of a CHUBBY MONK! Oh, and it's not illegal to ride in the back of a truck and Cops don't have to meet a quota . . . Yeah right!
