Tues Sept 12th

We had a busy weekend as usual. We did a day trip up to the Wyocolo area in Roosevelt National Forest to ride the four wheelers on Saturday. It was fun and we were joined by a bunch of friends. We rode for most of the day and Olivia actually rode her four wheeler for a few hours. The last time she only rode for about 30 min before her thumb hurt too much. The throttle is controlled by your thumb. She did very well and Jon and I were both pretty impressed with her. I forgot my camera though, darn! It makes for a long day and we didn't get home until about 9pm, so we were all very tired. Sunday we had church and then a BBQ get together to celebrate all the kids birthdays. Olivia turned 5 on Sunday and the twins birthday was a little over a week ago, so I figured we would just have a get together for all 3 at the same time. It was great having everyone over, but a bit overwhelming for the kids. They got a lot of nice things. Olivia has been talking about getting a doll house for awhile and we found a nice one at Target that is Kolcraft brand. Her toy kitchen is the same brand and is all wood and very sturdy. We have been really happy with it and so chose that one. She of course was so excited. And all of the kids got a new bikes from Jon's aunt and uncle, Clara and John. They have been playing with all their new stuff for the last 2 days and haven't had a boring moment in the day. Between coloring, playing dolls, playing with cars and trains, and riding bikes they have kept very busy. Alex has caught on to peddling with the training wheels really well but Cody still doesn't really get how the peddling is actually key in riding the bike. It is pretty cute though, and I can't believe my kids are 3 and 5 already. We also found out on Sunday that Jon's really good friend's dad passed away last week. He was diagnosed with cancer only a few months ago, but I guess it was all over. I am just amazed at what a terrible and wide spread disease cancer is. I feel like it is all around me and just feel so blessed that we had caught mine when we did. Jon has some really great memories of his buddies father and I know his family and friends will all miss him dearly. We love you guys!!
I am still having issues with my allergies and am wondering now if it didn't just turn into a really bad head cold after our trip. It hasn't seemed to let up much over the last week. I am hoping that it will get better soon. I was able to go out to lunch with some ladies that I work with today which was fun. Jon worked last night so he was home and was nice enough to watch the kids while I went and played for a bit. My aunt Kathy is in town visiting my grandma so we were all able to get together for dinner this evening to visit. It has been fun having my grandma here and nice to get to see some of my dad's side of the family over the past few months. I posted our Salt Lake trip pictures on my pictures link on the side bar of my blog if you want to check them out and will try and get the kids birthday pictures up there sometime this week. That's all for now, I am off to bed.
