Idaho family reuinion

After spending our few days with Sarah and Dan we drove to Three Peaks Lodge in St. Anthony for the reunion. It was so fun to see Aunts and Uncles, my Grandma and Grandpa Jensen, and cousins that I haven't seen in a while. This place that we went to was so awesome. It was perfect for kids and adults. They had a slide that went from the upstairs game room; with foose-ball, shuffle board, and ping-pong, down to the bunk room with huge foam building blocks and toys for kids. They had a nice sitting room and a big kitchen. It was perfect for a family reunion. One night we went out and roasted mallows and made smores. We played kick ball and vollyball and tennis. I'm telling you, it was "TOTALLY AWESOME!" -Bolt

there is a billion pictures to go through so I will do it until then adios to the two of you that are following. ;)

ok maybe tomorrow or the next day. in my defense I did try but the uploader gave me an error 3 times.

Idaho? no, Udaho. part 1

Next on our summer extravaganza was our trip to Idaho. We went to my family reunion at Three Peaks Lodge in St. Anthony, but we went a few days earlier and stayed at Sarah and Dan's house for a few day's. Seeing family and being with them made me really miss them even more and not want to go home to Vegas. I am so glad that we went. We had so much fun, and wish that we lived closer.

We went to an indoor play place that was a ton of fun. It was nice to just play with the kids. Milas had a lot of fun too. I think part of it the enjoyment of being there for Milas was not having to study. Let be honest it was nice for me too to not have him studying.

that is one Hot Papa!
All the kids watching Tarzan

intense swinging.

Lindy's Birthday

We have had an eventful summer with trips to see family and family to see us. It has been so great! Although the heat isn't that great the chillax-ness of the summer is my favorite. So this week I am going to try to update through.

We started out with Lindy's 2nd birthday.

She is such a fun, crazy 2 year old. We are constantly laughing at her, and constantly in a sense of "what are we going to do with her". She is the epitome of TWO YEAR OLD. into everything, always moving, saying no, but her personality makes it all funny. We love her to pieces. Two years goes by so fast, it is crazy!!

Tomorrow I will be 39 weeks prego, and I am sure feeling like I am 39 weeks prego. Milas is taking one of his CPA tests on Friday so the goal is to make it past Friday to have this bundle of BOY! We are starting to settle on a name, but knowing us, it could change. Naming is so hard!! anyways here we all are last week on Sunday at 37 weeks and 5 days.

Liza's 3rd Birthday!!

Liza's Birthday was on January 29th. I'm late, but way better than I did for Lydia, so making progress.

Liza turned 3, and she is surely 3. She says she's big, but knows that she isn't very tall. :) She is such a shorty, but we love it. Her and Lindy are very close in height. I get asked all the time if they are twins.

Liza is such a princess! She loves are things girly and pink. She loves to get her hair fixed and wants to wear a dress everyday. She is such a sweet girl and is a pleaser. She is usually the one to give in if one of her sisters is crying over something. She is a peacemaker. We love that about her. Her sisters are pretty lucky to have a sister like Liza. She had a great birthday and got way too spoiled. All she really wanted was a pink cake with candles, So all the other presents she got, she was excited about.
Her birthday was on a Saturday so we took advantage of Dad being home and decided to leave Lindy with some friends and take Liza and Lydia to see Tangled. We had a couple coupons so it ended up only being $12 for the four of us. I KNOW!! We would go to movies more often if it was always that cheap. We all enjoyed the movie thoroughly. What a fun day we had. I love birthdays for little kids. They are so happy and excited about everything. It is fun to spoil your kids like that on their birthdays too.

Pictures in random order, but it'll do.
making pizza. (I think Lydia had a little something to do with Liza deciding this is what she wanted for dinner)
She got measured on our family growth board.
My mom made Liza this awesome ABC book for Liza, it is a book with pictures of Liza doing different things. So cute. Liza loves it.

Pretty birthday girl! such a poser :)
opening her present from Milas' Mom and Dad. It is luggage with her name embroidered. I had to hide it and put it with the other luggage. It was a fun toy that could hold lots of other toys. :) Liza likes to put random things in bags and purses.
Checking out the doll house, we were given from some friends (thanks Tobers) Yes it's true we are cheap and gave her a used toy. But she loved it and was so excited to play with it.
Milas got her a little radio/mp3 player thing for kids. Liza loves to sing and dance and listen to music. This was very exciting if you can't tell.
very exciting!

This is all she wanted! and she got it. Such a big girl.

The most fun we've had all year!!

Yesterday we got out of bed and went downstairs for breakfast. I opened the curtains to find SNOW!! Lydia was so excited. She said "Is it Christmas?" And wanted to go out and play right away. We ate breakfast and got our snow gear on with an impatient Lydia telling everyone else to hurry because she thought it was going to stop. We finally got out there by 8:00 or 8:30am. It was a fun morning activity. Lindy didn't last very long, maybe ten minutes. She ended up inside watching a movie with a snack. Just like her last snow experience she just wanted to eat the snow and her hands got cold and wet quite fast. We built a baby snowman and Lydia didn't think that was good enough so then we made a "little girl snowman" which also wasn't big enough. So we made another snowman with two middles. She still wanted to make a bigger one, but we had run out of snow by then. Liza lasted till the "little girl snowman" and wanted to join Lindy. I of course got to continue to play with Lydia. I'll tell you what, rolling a snowball that is only about 10 inches high while 7 months pregnant, is such a joy. :) We had a lot of fun, and I'm glad we got to play in the snow. It was pretty much melted by 11:00 except for our two snowmen. It looked kinda funny with the green grass and two snowman right in the middle of the yard. Today we have two half snowmen. Lydia checks on them regularly to tell me the melting status.
