How we spend our Sunday afternoons....

So Sunday's around here are usually pretty quiet, we usually watch a movie together as a family or take a walk. Today we were watching a movie and mommy was making everyone "commercial clean"(my favorite way to clean). The kids were taking laundry upstairs for me and I heard Dustin and Tanner laughing at the top of the stairs so I peaked around the corner and Dustin was in a laundry hamper and Tanner was going to push him down the stairs. Luckily I could get it on video before it happened.... and of course what ever Dustin does the kids want to try too! They even convinced me to give it a try...... video

Tyler's Dance Recital...

Last night we had Tyler's dance recital for Studio C and she did amazing. This is her 5th year in dance and this last year has been kind of a struggle getting her to want to go to class every week. At the beginning of the season she had the opportunity to be on a one of the dance team's but that would have been 4 classes a week instead of the 2 so we decided not to do it and after dress rehearsal yesterday she suddenly loves dance and wants to do team next year. I guess we will see how she feels about in 2 months?!?!? She had lots of family there to support her, mom, daddy Dustin, Tanner, Brad Dad, Vanessa, Grammy, Crappa, Aunt Kirsten, Grandma Debbie, and Trace. After her performances we went out for ice cream to celebrate. Unfortunately we did not get a lot of pictures in her costume because she was backstage getting ready but here are a few......

Tanner's First Field Trip...

This week Tanner had his very first Field Trip and we went to the Botanical Gardens. Both Dustin and I could go so I was SO excited.... only I pictured the field trip going a whole lot different in my head. When we got there I lost Dustin (he has a habit of wondering when we go places) and Tanner didn't even notice I was there. I thought we would all walk together looking at all the pretty flowers and Tanner would hold my had.... um.... not exactly! Tanner asked if he could ride the bus back to school with his friends instead of going to lunch with me AND he asked me not to call him Tanner Bear anymore. How SAD is that?!?!?! But then Dustin popped out of the bushes and said that he would go to lunch with me so at least somebody wanted to spend the day with me.

My First Race...

I have decided that I want to be a runner!!! Over the last couple of months I have been running... not much, just a couple of miles around the neighborhood with the kids when they ride their bikes. I was thinking about racing but didn't think I was ready until Vanessa convinced me to sign up for the Famous Potato Marathon. Of course I wasn't able to run the full race but we did run the 5K and it was so much Fun! My parents showed up to cheer us on and take pictures. There were 4 of us girls and we were definitely the cutest with our new running outfits and matching headbands. We are going to try a mini tri-athalon in August and then I am hoping to run a full marathon by the time I turn 30 (which is only 1 year away)

Mother's Day

This year I had a Wonderful Mother's Day! After I took a shower I opened the door and there was Dustin and the kids waiting for me, they walked me down stairs and they had set up a surprise breakfast for me and some of my most favorite things....A snake eye and a diet dr. depper for breakfast, home made cards and presents from the kids they made at school, a gift certicficate for a pedicure, cook books that I REALLY wanted, lotion and bath gels, US Weekly magazine, and flowers. I love my family!!!
