Goodbye Vegas

Although I had such a wonderful selfish time while here I am ready to leave and see my kids. I want to squish them and never let go!

They bring in a big crowd.

I came into the conference room this morning and was surprised at how many people came to here Ryan and his brother speak. Kind of cool.

Day 3 Las Vegas

Today I spent with my sister. She is the best and I love when I get all over her attention uninterrupted by children. We had a really good talk and I got to read her book and discuss it with her. She helped me pick out this adorable outfit.
Then Ryan had a work dinner for all the VIP members. It was fun to watch him in action. I don't normally go to work conferences with him. Everyone wanted to talk to him and ask him questions. I love watching him in his environment.

The Phantom of the Opera

I saw this show when I was in Jr High and I did not appreciate it then. I remember loving the music and I listened to the tape over and over.

Ryan took me tonight and it was much more enjoyable as an adult when I could follow the story and understand what the songs truly meant. Although there are many not classy shows in vegas I am glad this one was here for us to enjoy.

The Mentalist

I was impressed that Sarah was willing to go up on stage tonight when we went to go see the Mentalist with people from Ryan's work.. He gets into your head and makes you say what he wants you to with out your realizing you are doing it.
It was very entertaining and Sarah did a great job.

My sweet Nephew Cade

Got baptized today and he asked Jared to give a talk. Jared did such a good job. I was very proud of him. I could not have done something like that when I was his age. He is such an amazing young man. I don't think he knows that I look up to him.

Old Town San Diego

Today we took them to the Mormon Battalion and we all loved this. The neat movie, the talking pictures, the information, panning for gold. It was a wonderful day. We also enjoyed a nice lunch and it made me really wish my parents lived closer!

Yay parents!

Are they not just the cutest things ever? I just love when they come to visit. We took them all over San Diego and showed them some of the sites. Today we went to an old Mission and I was so proud of how well the kids behaved. They must have been showing off for Grandma and Grandpa. Poor Ryan missed out on all the fun Cause now it is his turn to have Strep. We really did have a great Day!

I love my house

And I love being able to entertain in it. Our sweet book club friend is getting married and here we are after enjoying a little bridal shower game of make the bride eat way to much gum as she learns what she does not know about her soon to be husband.

Fieldtrip tuesday

This week we joined Aunt Sarah and her girls and went to the temple. The temple is being refurbished and the kids found that interesting. I think they enjoyed running threw the grass and the carefree spirit of the day more then anything.

I love snuggling

I know they won't always want to sit on my lap and let me read to them. But for today and for right now... I am going to love every second of it!

Happy Fourth of July

As I was laying in bed this morning (still sick) I was thinking about how much I wanted to make this cute 4th of July cake with strawberries and whipped cream frosting. I was not feeling up to much of anything yet and then ended up having to take Jared to insta-care since he now also has Strep.

When I got home from taking Jared the girls had put a cake in the oven and made this all on their own. They are my girls. I had not even told them that I wanted to make said cake which made the surprise all the more delightful.

I usually love this holiday and was a little sad to have missed it. Thank you girls for helping me to feel the spirit of the day!

Love for books!

We all love books and love to read/look at them. This was the view I was greeted with as I walked outside my bedroom door today (I left the bedroom- we must be making a little progress)
Jacob showed Ryan page after page with new excitement after every turn. Oh I love these boys of mine!
Ryan has been so amazing through all this. Today he cleaned the whole house, it can get kinda crazy when mom is down in bed sick. Then he took the kids to the beach and he took care of dinner again! Don't know why I am so blessed but I love it!

My view since Wednesday

This has been the worst sickness ever. I was finally able to confirm that yes I have strep throat and thank you for the meds. In the next 48 hours I should start to feel some relief and these beautiful things shall no longer be my all day every day companions. I will not be sad to see them go. I have read a lot, watched a lot of shows, drunk a ridiculous amount of water,and slept plenty. Yeah for meds! I can finally see a light at the end of this dark tunnel!

Mister Mom

I always loved that show. "Your doing it wrong" Not my point here. Ryan has had to do everything since I got sick and I think he is amazing! He is so hot and that really does make him a whole package in case you were wondering!
