Waiting in line for laser tag.

My 500th POST...

Crazy huh? I think so...

I have been racking my brain trying to figure what to do for this post and nothing seemed good.

So here goes nothing, okay may something:

I started my blog in April of 2008, at first I wasn't too attached to it. The first blog I found was this one, I thought it was fun. I then connected to many friends who I hadn't spoken to since High School. I became really addicted and in 2009 when Bob got sick it kind of turned into my journal, it was where I could write my feelings out and get the best advice. And now its my daily life. I love my blog. I love that I can keep track of the things my kids say, do and all the fun times we have together. I was a huge scrapbooker, but never had the time to make everything all cute. I also couldn't keep up on it. I love that I can turn my whole blog including my words that I write into a book and my kids can one day look at it.

My favorite blog is this one. I read this blog every day, I found her blog through another heart Mom whose little girl actually has the same thing as Bob.

I love blog hopping and reading peoples blog, I admit it, even people's blogs that I don't know. Its just fun to see what other people have going on.

I can't wait to blog more and look back at everything we have done, been through and survived.

Happy 500th post to me!!!

Our Saturday

Boys took off to the Widow Maker up in Morgan with Grandma and Grandpa, I did laundry and some shopping and Bob did yard work. Then we decided to hit up South Ogden Days, we lived in South Ogden for almost 5 years together, Bob lived there a lot longer.

Bob and Ash decided to ride the spinner, Jaxon didn't want to ride. I tried to explain to him that he was too big to ride the boats anymore.

And then Jax decided to join them. They giggled and laughed.

It was tons of fun!

And then Lex chose to ride the little kid roller coaster, she was laughing and giggling and THEN...

She hated it, she was screaming "LET ME OFF!!" so loud that every one was laughing. This girl is quite bossy and its her way or none!! So she got off and she was done with rides. As a matter of a fact she said "I go home Mommy!!" She was done altogether.

But I promised the boys one more ride. Ash chose the tornado and Jax chose the swings. They both had fun.

We then watched the Flying Ninjas, they were pretty good. The only bad part of the whole night was when this family of like 8 came and stood right in front of us and Bob got mad. I don't understand people, but it worked out.

Boys wanted cotton candy for a treat and let me tell you in was ONE BIG HUGE MESS!!!!

Lex and I (yes you heard that right...ME!!! I know your thinking, "Sierra you just started a diet!" I will talk about it later.) had this most delicious funnel cake with strawberries and whip cream....YES, it was amazing, every single calorie was delicious!!

Here is the face to prove it!!!

There was lots of relaxing, snuggling, dancing and wrestling. The boys played frisbee and football with a bunch of teenagers. Ryan Shupe and the Rubberband played and they are amazing, I was so impressed and so was Bob. We had the best night ever. It was totally worth every single minute spent there. We laughed the whole night.

The night ended with fireworks. I am so glad we went and we will be back next year. Thanks SOUTH OGDEN!!
