School Oral REPORT!

Boston gave his Oral report today on Snakes! He and his Friend Jacob did such a good job on it! They knew every kind of snake and had picures of everything! It was grossing me out, how much they loved to talk about the ANACONDA! Ewwwwww they thought it would be cool to pass around a real snake! But there was NO way i was going to help out with that! So Jacob's mom brought a Snake skin they had from a snake and they passed it around in a Bag!
I should have thought about it earlier and had my Dad send his "Snake Skin" Cowboy hat that he made himself from a Rattlesnake that he Killed and Ate! ( i know its a little Man Vs. Wild, but that is my Dad) Boston would have thought that was So Cool!

We have Coop and Cam's Birthday party today after School and then Pack meeting for Scouts! Boston has a Baseball tournament this weekend and then if they win tournament they go onto the Championship on Monday!!
I just found little fold up chairs like Mine and Cory's for Hayes and Olivia to sit on while watching the games! (From Costco and Super cute with Monkeys and Elephants!)

Then I am packing and Shopping for food for our Lake Powell Vacation! We leave on Tues morning for 9 Days! WOO HOO!!!!
It's always so much work to get there but once we are on the Houseboat it's totally worth it!
9 days....On a Houseboat +No Cell Phones+ hanging out with your Family= PARADISE!!!!

The "Game Ball"

Boston had a Double header today! One game started at 9 a.m. and then again at 6 p.m. So we stayed busy! The first game his friend Chase came up with us to watch him, and he played good and WON! The second game he hit everytime and Was playing Exceptionaly well, so he got the "Game Ball"! There were 3 kids who Hit Home runs in the same game, and Boston still got the "Game Ball" (which is a very big deal). He was just Grinning all night and was so proud of how Great he played, Oh and they WON again!!!
Hayes was a little Crazy today and would try to run as fast as he could out into the Ball field (while the game was going) We let him take off and run all the Bases when the Games are over, He thinks it is pretty cool! He is one BUSY little Kid!

Inbetween games we went to The Stonegate Pool to cool down with the Kids! We all LOVE that Pool! Hayes is quite daring with the water now! He starts laughing his head off when the water level is touching his Neck, which FREAKS me out!
My kids love the Water!

Last night we took Boston on a Date with us to see SHREK the Third! SOOOO Funny! We seriously laughed the whole time!
Then we went to get Boston his plant he has been wanting since Scouts the other night...."The Venus Fly Trap" He is so excited to see this plant catch bugs and Hold them!

Right now the Game is So INTENSE they are always quite close with this team! I know they are having fun because Cory said it is So loud there that he probably won't be able to hear for a week!

I Scored a Goal at my Soccer game tonight! Woo Hoo....But unfortunatley we lost 5-6 !

A big fat.....WOO HOO!!! For the Jazz! They Won and It was a dang intense game! Holy Cow!

Happy Mothers Day!

First off, i have to say that i think i am the luckiest mom in the whole wide world! How did i get such an amazing little family! My kids are so dang cute and i just love them to pieces and am so grateful to be their Mom!
Cory of course spoiled me with Beautiful Flowers, a new Dress, Shoes and a Beautiful 2 hour NAP! Boston Sang to me in Church today with all the Primary kids and when he came back to sit down, Olivia said really LOUD "Good Job singing Buddy" and pat his arm. (Seriously is that not the sweetest little girl ever)
We had Crew Granum's baby blessing and a Delicious Brunch from Jenn after! So cory lucked out on the cooking department today, but made up last night by putting all the kids in a bath, teeth brushed and off to bed, while i got to finish my book! I also have "3" Beautiful Mothers to Honor today! I hope you had a Beautiful day and I love and Appreciate your examples in my life!

We did it!!!! It was so much fun and a priviledge to Honor Cory's Sister Kelly as we ran in the Race against Breast Cancer! There were so many people...16,000 runners! It was so fun to see so many people in support of someone they love!
On the Back of our T shirts I loved the saying...."today we are fighting against a Bully"
Boston and his Cousins, Cooper and Camden thought it was so cool to ride the Lightrail from the Hotel to the Gateway!
During the Race, Boston Was rippin'! People were Cheering him on, that he started to make me Sprint fast so i wouldn't lose him. It was seriously so much fun!

Kelly has 2 more treatments left YAHOOOOOO! She even walked it! Good Job Kelly, We LOVE you! On the Back of our T shirts we wrote "In Celebration of our Sister, Aunt, Friend...Kelly Taylor!
All the Survivors wore the Pink Shirts! We had alot of people on or Team!

Here we are after the Run!

The Boys on the Trax! (which by the way was FILLED with Everyone going to the Race!)

Super "LONG" Fun Day!

Here they are playing in the Hotel room.....Pretty much Hayes was Opening and shutting all the Doors! Boys....
Swinging at the Baseball game today!

Well we started out our weekend staying the Night in Salt lake at the" Grand America "Hotel so we could wake up and Bypass the Traffic for Saturday mornings "Race for the Cure"
Heather and Shea came up with us and we all went swimming and then out to dinner at Ruth's Chris! (well the kids stayed with Mc Call while we went off on a fabulous date!)

The Race was this morning at 8:30 so we Conveniently jumped on the Lightrail and it took us 5 minutes to get there from our Hotel! Great Planning on Staying the Night!
The Race was Amazing! There were 16,000 runners/walkers, it was so fun and A little emotional seeing all these people running in support of someone they love who has been a Victim of Breast Cancer! Boston ran the Whole mile, he would have done the 5K if he didn't have a Double Header after the Race! I stayed with him while Cory did the 5K.

Then off to his Baseball games in Alpine! He won the first game and Lost by 3 points on the 2nd game. We had Beautiful weather and he had alot of Cousins and Family show up to his games today! Thanks guys, We LOVED It!!

We are unpacked from our Weekend away and getting ready for "MOTHERS DAY" and Crew's Baby Blessing after Church tomorrow!
HAVE A WONDERFUL "Mothers Day" Everyone!

We're Back from "VEGAS"

We had a fun "HOT" Vacation! The weather was seriously 100 Degrees! It was so hot but nice when you have a Cabana to hang out in! The kids had a Blast swimming all day long! Hayes and Olivia were so fun too, i was suprised that Olivia actually loved the water and wanted to be in it all day long, while Hayes was just cruising around finding everything possible to throw into the Pool!
We started out at the Mirage because of the Waterslides for the kids, but they were GONE! The Mirage is now "GHETTO" So we moved over to the Wynn and were in a Whole new world!
The rooms were so much nicer and the Service was amazing. The kids didn't have to see all the Trashy people, and we didn't have to walk through Smoky Casino's. You have your own Non Smoking entrance that is So nice!

We went to the Dolphin Habitat and the Secret Garden to see the Tigers! It's really cool how close you are to the Dolphins!

Talk about livin the Life......Spoiled little kids!
