Elijah is filthy. The swimming pool has been turned into a mud bath, my dust pan was used to shovel the mud into the swimming pool. Isaac is cooing at me. My house is half way clean and my laundry is almost done. The dogs are bugging me. Sam will be home in three hours. I talked to Dana today, Laura watched my kids for me, and I had lunch with Lucas. So pretty much it was a perfect summer day. The only thing that would have made it better..... an ice coffee.

July 24th

Elijah watching Beat It with Denise and Jamie, he thinks they are totally awesome.

I can't get over The Chunk.

I love the 24th of July. It is my favorite summer holiday. We live half a block east from where the fireworks go off. Everyone came over for pie and beer, then fireworks. It was a lot of fun. This will be one of the things I miss when we move. I love being this close to all the 24th action. I only took a few pictures, they don't do the night justice.

Too Hot

Our attempt at a family picture.

The biggest turtle ever found.

Their first bath together

Damn he is cute.

It is way too hot to be outside so we went to the Dinosaur Museum today. It was pretty cool. Elijah loved the ocean part and l liked being entertained in an air conditioned building. I made Jacob come with us. He seemed mildly amused but mostly he was bored. He helped me with the boys and didn't have to go to another baseball game.
I am feeling better. It is easier to recover from surgery when you don't have an organ taken out, just a misplaced IUD.

Medicine makes everything all better.

Hey big brother it is going to be alright.

Elijah just launched himself off our bed! There was a big boom, a loud scream and running parents. Elijah was crying and holding his head asking for medicine. I wonder if the asking for medicine every time he is hurt or tired is a bad thing?!

The Drama Continues

Well I guess I must like drama. On Monday I had an IUD placed. On Monday evening I started having abdominal pain, by Tuesday the pain was getting intense. The pain was never constant though so I didn't worry too much. I called my dr. and she scheduled and ultrasound just to make sure things were okay. I went to my ultrasound yesterday and they couldn't find the IUD. I had an abdominal x-ray done at two in the afternoon and they found the IUD in my lower right quadrant! I was told I was going to OR at six. By the time I got into the surgery the IUD had traveled to my left upper quadrant. The IUD is now sitting on my kitchen counter, that is not where I wanted it placed! Today I am recovering from another surgery and being grateful my wonderful husband. My stomach looks like a laparoscopy scar battlefield between this surgery, my gallbladder being taken out and two c-sections. All that in two and a half years. LAME!!!

Happy Birthday Sam

That's right Sam turned 31 yesterday. We had a nice chill day yesterday, then Sam and I went to dinner all by ourselves. Thank you Laura. Elijah got his dad packaging for a ball (he kept the ball for himself) and a nice drawing of Sam eating pancakes.
Today we went to Jordanelle with some friends and family. We drank some beer, did a little swimming, ate some food and chilled.

This is what I get to wake up to every morning. I love being their mama.

Isaac had his two month check up today. He is healthy of course. He gained an average of 50 grams a day for the last seven weeks. He weighs 12lbs 15 oz! I thought he was a tank but he is only in the 50th percentile for weight. He had to get his first set of vaccinations. Poor baby it broke my heart when he started screaming in pain. I hope he isn't too fussy tonight. Good thing I have the goods to comfort him.
I thought Elijah loving to listen to Beat It was cute about the first five times. Now I miss BillieJean. It is cute watching him try and dance like Michael Jackson! That will never get old.

Happy Birthday America

We had a fun filled weekend. On Friday we looked at houses again. This time though we found a house we both liked, so we bid on it. We won't find out until Monday if our offer was accepted. After looking at houses the boys and I went swimming with Aunt Laura. We all got too much sun (except Issac) and had a lot of fun. I think it is time to get Elijah in swim lessons. Saturday morning we woke up early and headed to Park City. I ran the 5k with Isaac while Sam and Elijah played at the park. Afterward we had brunch and then watched the parade. Elijah was really into the parade this year. He liked the horses, the music and the cars! That evening my dad came over for a BBQ and fireworks. We only did a handful of fireworks but it was enough to entertain Elijah. Today was a chill day with a little bit of playing outside and some good naps. Sam had to work and the ER was very very busy.
Elijah is into Michael Jackson. We get into the car and he asks to listen to Michael Jack and sings Beat it. I love it! He is also talking back a lot! That I do not love. He tells me I am in doing a big fat no no and that I am in big trouble and just tells me no a lot.
Sam sold one of his Felt bikes and is currently looking for a new bike. I usually have no idea what he is talking about when he talks about bikes but I know he is interested in buying a mountain bike that is gold. That could change though.
