Our New House

We are finally getting settled into our new house.  We had only been here for 3 days before we went up to Utah for the summer.   We love this house and the area!  We can walk 7 houses down on either side of us and end up at a park.  We have an awesome clubhouse with 2 pools, fireplaces and party rooms.  There are so many other parks close by that we haven't had time to explore yet but we love it.  Needless to say, it is going to be so hard to move away from this place in 3 years!!!  Here are a few of the pictures of it...

More summer

Since I haven't posted anything since May I am a bit behind.  I have posted this post and another to try and get a little up to date....sorry it is scattered!

We had a BBQ a couple days before we left Utah.  This is all of the guys playing a little soccer in the backyard.  We had so much fun and we love getting together with our wonderful friends back at home.

My mom took all us girls to Thanksgiving point gardens.  It was so beautiful there.  I loved being surrounded by all of the green and flowers.  After walking around the gardens we went to lunch at the cafe there, so pretty.  I had a great time with my sisters, Love you girls!

My big boy turned 2!!!!  We wanted to make Emerson have the best day of his life so me, Mike, my mom and Ryan took Emerson to Kangaroo Zoo.  He loves this place.  We went many times over the summer.  Emerson still asks for Zoo, Zoo, Zoo.

After Kangaroo Zoo we took Emers to McDonald's for lunch and he played in the play place.  We went home, took naps and got ready for the party.  We went to the park for his birthday party.  All of our family came.  He had a baseball cake (which he LOVED and was upset I wouldn't let him grab it before the party), we played baseball and had a pinata.  The kid was super spoiled with gifts by his parents, grandparents and all his aunts and uncles.  You all know how to make a kid feel special.  It was a great day.  Emerson had so much fun!

We also celebrated my birthday.  I usually hate birthdays for myself but this year was so fun.  It started with going to lunch with my mom and my sisters to Cheescake Factory in Salt Lake.  After that my sister Alyssa took me to get pedicures at the Sanctuary Day Spa at the Gateway.  It was AMAZING!  I love pedicures!!!!  We went shopping for a few hours after.  Then, I met Mike and my mom and dad and we went to dinner at Tuscany.  It was such a fun experience.  The food was amazing and the atmosphere and company were too.  As soon as we got home the rest of my family came over and we had cake and ice cream.  It was so nice.

A few weeks ago I also found out that I am going to be an aunt!  My sister Alyssa is having a baby in March.  I am sooo excited that someone else in our family is providing children and that it is not me every time:)  

Summer Fun

This summer was so much fun.  We were so lucky to spend over 2 months in Utah with our families and friends.  Here are just a few pictures from things we did.  

Mike and I at the Real Salt Lake soccer game.  We went with Rob and Rocio and it was so much fun!  It was nice to be able to go out together and have a babysitter for the boys.

This summer was so nice because Mike was home so much and helped out a lot with the boys.  Even though he spent a lot of time studying he was there and helped so much.  I will be so sad and miss him when he goes back to school in two weeks.
