I am "Sick" of it!

I'm so sick of being pregnant! It's never ending right now, I know I sound like an old woman but seriously, my joints and feet hurt so bad I can barely walk! And I keep swelling, is it weird that even my tongue is swollen? There are teeth marks actually imprinted in it! I really miss my cute clothes and looking nice everyday. I know that sounds vain but I've suffered long enough looking frumpy and just feeling lousy all the time! There will be a maternity clothes and T-shirt burning party scheduled in the near future!

Road Trip!

We made it! The road trip to Oregon was definetly a lot of work but we knew it would be that way. Just wasn't planning on being 9 months prego doing it. I just have to say that without technology the way it is now, it would have been impossible! So I'll just take this moment to thank the people that invented air conditioning, junk food, nintendo and the DVD player! I hate to admit it but we did end up purchasing 12 happy meals to keep the kids happy with new toys as well!

We stayed at a really nice beach house on the coast. The weather for the first few days was really foggy but it then cleared up and we could actually see the beach! The kids loved running in the water and building their sand castles. I for the most part had to play a beached whale! They got to ride the dune buggy, hike, and have a blast.

If I could do it over again, I wouldn't be 9 months along riding in the car for 17 hours! That was kind of rough, especially on the way home. We went through some gorge between Baker City and Boise that was really long and the elevation was absolutely killing me! I felt like I was in complete labor, the pain was soooo bad and I was just waiting for my water to break! I really didn't want to have the baby in the car. We finally made it out of the gorge and the contractions started to cease.

So I can breath a little better now that I'm home and close to a hospital where the luxury of drugs is readily available to me!

The Event we've all waited for...Tracee and Chris!!!

This is the event we've all waited for! Congratulations Tracee and Chris! The wedding went very well, we were worried about the weather at first but our faith prevailed! They got married at Heceta Head Lighthouse on the Oregon Coast and we all had a great time. The kids sang a song they had been practicing all week for them. We were glad that the kids made it through the real thing without knocking each other down since the practices were full of drama! So with a bribe promised, it worked out!

These kids ripped up the dance floor, it was like "Saturday Night Fever!"

We went to an Aquarium while at the coast. They had these large tunnels you could walk through and the fish would swim over. The kids loved it!

The kids were also asked to participate in a research study,they had to wear microphones and were video taped while they played in the tide pools. They got a prize after, that's the only reason they did it!

This place is beautiful! It's so secluded and quiet. It's amazing how perfect the temple grounds are, nothing out of place.

Cape Perpetua, a little scary but what a view!

What did she say?

Last night we were doing some cleaning and I think Jared told Amara to do something but I didn't hear what it was. In response she said,"Maybe my dad is stupid!" We looked at each other and were like what did she say? Where she got that, who knows! What a stinker she is!

A Day in the Life....

Ok, so my good friend Janai tagged me! This is my first and it's proof that I'm not perfect! So the rules are you have to take 10 pictures of the following things and you have to do it right away. No cleaning, fixing yourself or the kids, etc. These are pictures of right now! Look at the bottom of the post to see who's tagged next.

Closet: I picked the cleanest one!
Shoes: It's a funny thing to have a shoe basket for shoes and where do they end up?

Me: I hate pictures of myself especially when I'm pregnant!

Fridge: I had actually just cleaned it out, phew!!!

Laundry Room: And lucky again on this one, I cleaned it this last Friday!

The Kids: They were sitting at the table laughing at Tayah because she was throwing a tantrum! If you look closely at Amara she's actually making a naughty sign! And if you're wondering, we don't teach our children that stuff!

Tayah's tantrum

The Bathroom: this is as close a look you're going to get!

Favorite Room: only because it usually is the most presentable room most of the time!

The sink: pretty good, and it's only about noon!

Dream Vacation: Still a dream!

I tag Cami and Candace!
