Park day..

We decided to get out of the house today and run some errands and meet with our friends! Isaiah had a blast and London and Daxton got more acquainted.. especially since Amanda and I have already arranged their marriage!! Shhh, they don't know that yet. These two were only like a week apart - look at the size difference in their feet!! Amanda looks beautiful as always:)

Circus time

We decided to take Isaiah and London to the circus at the last minute (thank you Erin). Jake had a date with two women and 3 kids.. It was fun for the "kids"--- Erin and I just chatted over the very loud music. We left at intermission but according to Isaiah and Quinn- it was over:) Shhh never tell. Erin and I decided that if our husbands aren't nice, we are joining the circus and going to be the "Queen of the clouds." ha ha.

A few weeks old...

Well we went to the fair like most people did... a few weeks ago:) I am just slow at getting the pictures up for it! We had a good time as usual. You basically pay a ton of money to just eat fattening food and watch lots of ghetto people (wait, never mind- I just remembered we are ghetto too so we fit right in), but hey... it's the fair right? We all LOVED the tiger show.. it was definitely worth the wait.

Recap of events..

  • Well I did something that will never be forgotten. I finally made a meal that Jake didn't like, but LOVE. Yes, take a moment of silence:) I made the famous Martin spaghetti.
  • I watched four grown men cleaning my kitchen. Can I tell you how much I enjoyed that? London and I just sat and watched completely entertained... (I had Jake's 3 friends over for our usual Sunday dinner).
  • Watched New Kids On The Block's new music video, Single (with Ne-Yo), OVER AND OVER. Did I just admit this? Yes I love them.. and that video... uhh to die for. And it makes it that much better that I have been in that same exact club that they are in. (And I will make "someone" listen to it and like it.. yes you know who you are).
  • Laughed soooo hard at Tommy, Aaron, and Ryan last night... I almost pee'd my pants! It was so nice to have adult conversations:)
  • Kissed my kids a million times... is that new?

Something soo small..

Written to me from someone special:
"I couldn't imagine life with out you by my side."
It's funny how the smallest things that are said by someone we love can really make life so much better:)

Isn't listening to an infants laugh so contagious? I think it is so interesting that London has such a funny personality.. she laughs at the craziest stuff.

My quirks!

Quirky Mandy
Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours.* Tag 6 fellow bloggers
1. I am a tweeze fanatic... I could spend hours tweezing and tweezing.
2. I cannot or will not go to bed without putting chapstick on and cleaning, toning, and moisturizing my face.
3. I shave my legs every single day. If I feel the "stubble" I feel super dirty:)
4. When I clean or shower, I have to have on some music or listening to my ipod.

So sweet..

I made some rice krispie's and had a plate to take to Jen and I looked and realized Isaiah had got an extra plate and put that little tiny bite on it for Nixen. I thought that was the cutest thing.. I couldn't help but smile. He loves his friend "Nicken"-

I'm in and playing the game.. Memories:)

This is a great idea!
1. As you comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember.
2. Next, repost these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty fun to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you are playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave a memory about you. If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you do not have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments. Have fun!!

Sinner's Lane

So when Isaiah is in preschool, I like to go to a specific park nearby and walk laps ... Little did I know that I was in the middle of another version of "Pioneer Park"! It seems like everyone goes there to fulfill in their sin.. ha. I was fully entertained the whole 3 miles I walked.. I saw a little bit of everything.. my imagination ran wild while watching these secret lives come out in the open..
I was scared I was going to be in the scene of a few violent crimes or be an eyewitness in different cases. It seems as though the park has several different uses (besides for family and recreation events) and they are the following:

  • If you are on a diet and want to eat powdered donuts.. yes I saw a girl sitting alone eating these as quickly as she could.
  • If you are having an affair..meeting up with someone besides your spouse, male or female (or trying out the same gender)... yes I witnessed this as well.
  • If you decide you want to ditch school or work... no secret there. We've all done it.
  • If you are a business man and want to indulge in a fantasy with a magazine :) In giving this person the benefit of the doubt.. it was just "my" interpretation of what looked like it.. Maybe he was just reading the Ensign while sitting in his truck?
  • If you are dealing drugs or needing drugs.. this is the place to meet.

Yes this Monday morning was a circus at the park. I had no idea so many different things happened there early in the morning. I guess there is no such thing as a family friendly park anymore! It was quite comical..

So if you have something to hide.. go to the park on a Monday mornings. You will fit right in..:)

Another weekend in Park City..

We enjoyed another weekend in Park City with my family in a condo that my parents had. We really had a lot of fun. My creative sister, Debra put on a huge scavenger hunt that covered ALL over Park City. It was actually really fun.. I don't think I ran that hard that fast in years! I kept my eye on the prize:) and yes me and my teammate won (GOOD JOB SEAN)!

This picture is of Debra giving London a lemon...
Is London that afraid of me?

So London LOVES her sweet potatoes.. she is so funny. She eats the food and then makes all these funny noises and spits it all back out everywhere on me..

Past weekend events..

Jake and I decided to take Isaiah to ChuckECheese.. HE LOVED IT.

We also went up to Park City for a night with my family. It was terrible weather but we still found a way to have a little fun..

First day

So I dropped Isaiah off at his 1st day of preschool today. I couldn't believe that he is already old enough to leave me and go to school! I woke him up and said, "it's time to get ready for school today." And he sat up and he said, "My teachers names are Miss Shelly and Miss Megan." He must have been dreaming about it. He looked so handsome and was so excited to go. He didn't even look back once at me when I dropped him off. He just took off! Here is a few pics..
