"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails.
I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp.
I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children.
I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden.
I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder.
I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

Air Kids Party Zone in Corona has open play times. I'm planning on taking the kids this Friday at 10:00 am if anyone wants to meet me there. It's only gonna cost me $8.00 for the 3 of us, and I'm in much need of someplace with air conditioning. So let me know if you want to go. Hope to see you there.

I smell Mustard!

Yesterday I was cleaning the living room and all of a sudden I was smelling mustard. I went to the kitchen and trevor had gotten the bottle (brand new full bottle) of mustard. Opened it and the WHOLE bottle was on the floor and all over the two of them. It smelled so bad the rest of the day. It even stained the floor.

No air conditioning.

So the other day our air conditioning in our house decided to go out. I just got the air fixed in the car and then it goes out in the house. I think it's me and bad luck. I bought a $15.00 pool at the store and it has helped with the hot days. It actually helps to just sit in a chair and put my feet in. Ooohhhhhhh will the winter please come!!! I HATE the heat.

This is......

the car ride home from the beach.

A day at the Beach

Tough guys at the beach. Daddy and Trevor

Daddy and his mini me!
Uncle Chris wrote Hollie's name in the sand.

A couple of weeks ago we went and took family pictures in Oceanside at the beach with my side of the family. Afterwards. Lance wanted to go fish off the pier for a couple hours and I took the kids to the beach to play for a while. They LOOOOVVEE the beach. I wasn't planning on the playing in the water part and had no extra clothes. So the went home in their underwear and diaper. They had so much fun. I also thankfully brought Hollie's potty. We used it a couple of times.

Dance like no one is watching!

Last month Hollie and I took a mommy and me dance class. Mostly ballet. It was fun to watch her participate and see her learn to do different things. Thanks to gramma Joanie who came and played tag team with me and Trevor.

And now there are 2

Sarah, Jennifer, Melissa, Brenda
This is the original group. Jennifer (black shirt) was the first to get married. This picture was taken at her bridal shower. Then I got married and then Melissa and then Brenda. Right after Jen got married she moved to Utah.
Now Brenda is moving to Nebraska. It's Sad to have friends move away. When I got married and moved to Riverside I luckily moved into the same ward as Brenda. With me going alone with the kids it was nice to have an istant friend. I joked with her the other day that I was her little shadow at church and activities. I followed her everywhere. Thanks brenda for being such a great friend. I'm gonna miss you tons.
I'm still going to get you girls a copy of this pic. Sorry it's taken me like 7 years!

Ive been dreading the day when one of the kids disappears and is quite and I find them with a total mess. thank goodness (knock on wood) that hasn't happened yet. This is the closest to it tho. I caught Hollie just in time before it got worse. She twisted the lid off the lotion and luckily just her hands got in it.

"Twilight" in person

First Beach and James Island (12 miles from Forks) Abundant driftwood from nearby forest guards the broad sandy beach where visitors and local townspeople alike can enjoy the ever changing moods of the wild Olympic coast

Second Beach, near the Village of LaPush, (12 miles from Forks) is an exceptional stretch of wilderness coastline on Olympic National Park. The broad sandy beach and picturesque sea stacks, relics of ancient rocky headlands, make it a perfect place to observe the grandeur of the primal forces of nature.
