Our Day!

Monday, October 24, 2011

So we took on a great feat today - we hiked up a mountain near our home.

Except that wasn't the great feat... we did it with a cranky 3 year old!

So we have been wanting to do this hike ever since we moved here, but just kept putting it off.

Today was such a beautiful day, I knew it was now or never. So we hiked up to our local universities insignia on the mountain (the Y).

It's right near our house and I always stare at it thinking "that's not so big", "I can hike that".

Turns out it was a little harder than I was prepared for! Also it didn't help that we took our 3 year old, who happened to be really cranky.

She started out walking by herself, but shortly after we were carrying her the whole time.

Which normally wouldn't have been a big deal, but she was cranky and complaining the whole time!

Luckily she was pretty fascinated by the leafs for a little bit. I'm actually not a huge fan of hiking, but you can't beat the views!

Hope everyone had a great Monday!!



Our Day!

Saturday, October 22, 2011

So this picture pretty much describes perfectly what was going on with me today!

I can't even count how many times I forgot my keys or my wallet (luckily I always remembered the kids Laughing)

I left my wallet on a stack of pumpkins outside our local Kroger store and didn't remember until an hour later!

Thank goodness for a good Samaritan who took it into the store and gave it to customer service.

So it was only fitting that when we went to the Disney Store Halloween dress up party I missed it by 4 hours.

I completely forgot the times were different today than yesterday!

I felt so bad, my little baby fairy had dressed up and really wanted to go to a party. I knew I had totally messed up when I didn't see a huge line going out of the store.

I think things like this are just part of being a mama. Unfortunately you just have so much going on sometimes, your brain just goes out the window!

Luckily she loved just looking around at the Disney store and it didn't hurt that she was able to leave with a new doll. Laughing



Gotta Love Cheap Food!!

Tuesday, October 18, 2011

We went and got our Dickey's cheap food! The kiddos loved it and I loved the price!!

You can't beat $1 sandwiches and drinks! I had never been there before and I was so excited to see FREE pickles and ice cream!!

It might now be one of my favorite places! Go here to see how you can grab cheap BBQ.

Do you like my little girls 80's hair? That's what happens when she doesn't hold still while I'm doing her hair. Laughing



I love Fall!!

Sunday, October 16, 2011

I asked earlier on Facebook what everyone's favorite part of Fall was, I have to say I agree with all of the answers (except the Anniversary lol)

I really love the leaves changing! The picture above is the mountain that is behind our house and I love all of the colors!

(sorry, my camera is horrible!)

I wish it could stay like this all year round! We went for a bike ride as a family today, we have a canyon near us and I love how the trees form a canopy.

Unfortunately on the way down from the canyon I made the mistake of opening my mouth to talk to my husband and a bug flew right in!

It was so gross!! Unfortunately it's just a hazard when you are biking, but this one was bigger than usual! Tongue out

I hope everyone else had a great Fall weekend! (minus the bugs!)

Today is my baby girls 3rd birthday! The only problem is I'm realizing shes not much of a baby anymore!

I felt like her first year just flew by, and I don't even know where the second one went to.

Now I can't believe it's been 3 years! She was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen. I new when I was pregnant I would love her, but I had no idea how much.

I had such a horrible pregnancy, I was just so relived to have it finally over with. When she came out, I just couldn't believe how much I loved her.

I tried to spend every minute with her at the hospital, The nurses kept telling me that I should have her go to the nursery, so I could get some rest, but I just didn't want to let go of her.

Now that she's 3, there are days I wish I could still take them up on that offer! Laughing

She's too young to read this, but I want her to know that I love her so much! She is my world, and I will always do everything in my power to be the best Mama I can be.

You'll always be my baby girl...

We are a family of four that left it all behind to go travel the world. No, literally we left it all. We sold all of our possessions, packed what we could into four suitcases and said goodbye to suburban life. All we own is now pulled behind us as we travel to new and exciting destinations. Showing our kids the world and teaching them about new cultures, food, and ways of life is now our 9-5.

We love watching our kids learn, and learning along side them. Together we have now explored many new countries, visited family on the other side of the world, and made memories that will last a lifetime.

Welcome to our journey!
