Say Bye-Bye British Teeth

I got my braces off today!!! I never had braces as a kid and have always been soooooooooooo self-conscious about my teeth. I even entered a horrible teeth contest (I can't remember the actual name but I'm sure it was something along those lines!) 300 people entered and they asked 25 people to come in so the dentist could get a closer and look to see if you would win the make over. I was one of the 25 and bawled my eyes out when I saw on TV that I wasn't chosen.  I have waited for this day for 2 1/2 years (longer if you count those yucky teenage years!) David is taking me out tonight for dinner (I'm craving a Rocky Mountain Carmel Apple!!!) and a whole new wardrobe!!! (OKay maybe just 1 new outfit)

Crazy Weekend

 I have been planning for this for 3 months and it is already gone! It was HORRIBLE weather the whole entire time my family was in town for Addie's baptism, but we managed. We were able to spend a few days with my niece who just happened to be in town. We did a lot of things inside, but we still had fun spending time together. I am soooo glad its over though! Life can get back to normal and I'm not weeding for a month! (okay maybe just 1 week)

AMEX Marathon

 Aubree and David ran the 3 1/2 mile race for American Express (I say 3 1/2 because the race wasn't marked very well and some people went a longer way confusing the people who were behind them!) Then after the adult race they had a 1 mile kid race and Aubree decided to do that one too and placed 2nd! (After just running 3 1/2 miles!)

 GO DAVID! (Aubree was proudly WAITING for her dad at the finish line!)
 Austin was so excited for his first race! He did really good. They only kept track of who made 1st place, but I was so proud of him for running the whole mile!

Aubree beat him to place 2nd.

Thanksgiving Point

 We went to Thanksgiving Point on our way home from Aubree's soccer camp and came back with a new little friend. Yes I'll admit it: I'm a sucker for baby animals!


 We drove up to Sundance and stayed in a cabin the night before we had to take Aubree to soccer camp. It was the closest thing my kids will ever get to camping.
 We rode on the ski lift and wen on a hike when we got to the top that had some amazing views
 Notice the water fall in the background (the very overexposed waterfall!)
 Our hiking attire: School clothes and flip flops

 This is how my kids spend a vacation in the great outdoors: watching movies on the kindle, texting friends, and watching TV

This is how the kids had to get to their rooms.

BYU Soccer Camp

 WoW! What a week! Aubree had BYU soccer camp for 4 days! We stayed up at Sundance the day before since she had to be there pretty early (I'll post that later) but on the rest of the days David would drive her on his way to work (an hour away!) and then I would pick her up. It was 4 hours long and Aubree complained it was too long, but she had fun on the very last day since they played more games. She had a really fun coach that was great with the kids. Next year we will have her do the overnight one so we don't have to drive back and forth.

Memorial Day

 We went to This Is The Place park for Memorial Day. The kids love the baby animals and playing in the cabins. Dave and I always joke that this is the era Aubree was supposed to be born in.

 Austin has this thing with wearing his pj's underneath his clothes. he says he's "trying to be like daddy"
 love the smiles he gives me!
 Had to hurry and change lenses to grab this shot
 We couldn't get the kids to leave this area.
 Aubree was the first one onboard the firetruck so she got to wear the hat while we took a ride around the park
 the girls panning for gold
 Addie couldn't find anything for the longest time and finally found 4 pieces! (we just won't tell he that the guy who worked there poured some into the stream and helped her look for some. Addie was so excited.
Examining her find
