This morning at 5:15 I was put on call for work. It has been months since I was put on call. So I finally got a day to be with my family. We went to Jungle Jim's Playland, the kids had a blast there is a big carousel, bumper cars, a jeep safari, swings, a roller coaster and lots of games.
Brigs loves cars so this was his favorite ride.
This roller coaster was fast. Alayna went on it first all by herself and loved so Andrew took Brigs and as you can tell by the picture as soon and the seat belt when on he got scared and did not end up riding it. Alayna road it a couple times. It's like the musical express at lagoon (I think that is what it is called).
Oh yes the flying jets. I guess this ride does not have a max capacity because there was a scared little girl behind my kids so the dad road with her ( about 6'4, 250)and for most of the non flying rides it was fine for the parents to ride but I was a little nervous thinking maybe the dad would stay low and not fly, oh no he was cranking the jet up and down with his legs hanging out the side. I guess if the state fair can throw rides together in a day and no one dies on them, my kids should be able to survive on these rides that have been here for years. The kids liked the spinning tops, they were laughing, until they started spinning to fast Brigs looked like he was going to vomit. Lucky for us he didn't but it was close. It was such a fun day. I love being with my family.

Where has the time gone???

Well a quick catch up. I finally finished nursing school yeah!!!! So I am working as a registered nurse at a community hospital is Salt Lake City. Andrew has 3 years of law enforcment under his belt and he had a birthday this month big 28. Alayna and Brigs are getting so big, they make me laugh every day I love it. I love my family so much I could not of asked for a more perfect family. My Layn is my little helper she is getting so big, but she did tell me on her birthday she would stay four forever for me:) I wish it could work like that. Brigs is such a momma's boy lately, he wants me to hold him all the time and he cries when I leave. It's kinda nice because he has been a daddy's boy since he was born. I will post pictures later.

Oregon fun!!!

This picture is my favorite. Alayna is going through this animal phase, she acts like a dog half the time, if not more. We spent spring break in Oregon. We had so much fun. Vacations to Oregon are always so nice I hate to leave there. We did so many fun things, movies, games, a play, enchanted forest, the coast, the science museum and much more.

My Boys

Alayna is so big. We went to Enchanted Forest and she wanted to go on all the rides. She was tall enough so we let her. She went on the roller coaster, the log ride and lots of other rides.

The ginger bread house.

We spent a couple nights at Grandma Goss' house. We had so much fun.

Walking the coast. Donna, Alayna, Gunner, Ryan, Randy, me and Brigs. Andrew is taking the picture.

This is the view from our room. It was so nice to sleep with the windows open and hear the waves crashing.

We went to the science museum in Ashland. Alayna had a blast, these huge bubbles were her favorite.

Alayna driven the tractor in the play land at the science museum.

We took Alayna to a petting zoo where she went on a Easter Egg hunt, and she got candy from the Easter bunny.

She fed the bull:)

I need to invest in a giant box of corn kernels for Alayna to play in, she loved it.

There was this baby kangaroo that Alayna followed around forever. They finally got him cornered and she was able to pet him.

We love going to Oregon. It was so nice to see everyone.

My Man turns 27 and my Princess turns 3.

Andrew turned 27 on the 1st. He had to work on his birthday but I was able to go on a ride along with him, it was a lot of fun. I am so proud of him, he works so hard for me and our family. I am so grateful to be married to such an amazing husband and father. I love you sweetheart, Happy Birthday.

My princess turned 3 I can not believe it. It seem like yesterday I held you in my arms for the first time and cried like a baby because I was so happy to be a mother to such a beautiful baby girl.
I love you Lane you are such a joy to have around, you can always make me smile.

Lane loves anything with Dora or princess. She loves to sing, play the piano, and read.

Her Dora birthday scooter.

I love my kids!!!!!

I had to post some pics of my cute kids. Gosh they are getting big so fast. Alayna loves to hold her brother and make him laugh. Brigs loves his daddy to tickle him with kisses on his cheeks, he laughs so hard ( I will have to get it on video and post it). These two kids are my world. I love being a mom.


So I have the most amazing husband in the world. I had the best Valentines surprise ever. Those of you who know our crazy lives know me and Andrew hardly ever see one another with work and school. So it was Friday and it was one of those days at work when you are praying for it to be over. I had very very sick patients, and it was a very draining morning. I had patients that came in for surgery and are now so confused to the point they don't know their own name, I also had a patient with panic high potassium levels and of course no IV access. So what I am trying to say is that this day just kept getting worse and worse. So it seemed like this day would never end. also during the craziest hour Andrews friend Jake showed up to my work saying something about leaving something in my truck so at this point with everything happening at work i gave him the keys and didnt think anything about it. So I am suppose to get off work at 7 pm and I am just beginning to chart about my day before the night nurse shows up. I hear the elevator and I look up expecting to see the night nurse when I see the most handsome man in his blue shirt and tie and a bouquet of flowers (yellow ones of course). I had no idea what was going on but I seriously had tears in my eyes. How did he know I just had the most horrible day. Of course he would not tell me why he was there he just said he would wait while I finished report and charting. He stood there patiently for over an hour while I finished. Then we were off on this mystery date, him in his handsome dress clothes and me in my scrubs:). Fortunate for me he had my dress clothes in the truck. He still wouldn't even give me any clues as to where we were going. We drove to downtown Salt Lake and pulled into the Grand America, Andrew said he heard of an amazing restaurant inside. We go into this restaurant inside the Grand America and it was the most romantic setting of candles, music, and food like you could not believe, it just kept coming and coming and believe it or not I ate halibut and it was amazing. So we have this romantic dinner and then Andrew says there is this balcony that looks over the city that visitor are welcome to, so he has me close my eyes. We walk through the hotel and into the elevator I was not allowed to peek. What seemed like only seconds then I could feel the cold breeze on my face. I open my eyes and sure enough I could see the valley with all the lights and it was so pretty. I turned around to see where we had come through to get there and we are in a beautiful room with flowers and chocolates and sparkling cider. It was our room for the night. It was the most romantic valentines get away every. He had thought of everything. I had clinicals for school the next day and he had brought all of my school stuff so I could relax and go to clinicals from there. He thought of every thing from my school badge to my books and my uniform. He had everything I need so I was able to relax and not worry about a thing. Oh and thanks to my amazing friends Jake and Ashley, who watched our kids,YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME.
My Andrew is so amazing I am so lucky to have him in my life. I am so excited to spend every Valentine's, every holiday, and every day with him. Thanks hun for a special day I love u
