Poor little Sara has to move to St. George this Saturday but has been sick since Sunday. She was finally feeling better yesterday so Patrick and I went over to see her last night and watch so you think you can dance.

We are currently in Springville, Utah. We are going to be here until the 5th or 6th visiting family. I do plan on posting some pictures until my camera dies. I only have a few so far so as soon as I have a small collection I will share all the fun we are having with you, my loyal readers.

Ok, I feel really bad that I didnt post anything about Fathers Day. For Fathers Day we had originally planned not to get Jesús anything because a couple months before we had bought Mario Kart with the extra controller and that was a lot of money. We originally decided it would be our Mothers Day Fathers Day joint gift, but guess who plays it the most? Yeah, not me. So Jesús went and bought me this beautiful iPod doc alarm clock Well Jesús was thinking that he wasnt going to get anything for Fathers Day but I surprised him. Sunday morning we got up in the morning and started our normal routine of getting ready for church and I didnt make him breakfast or anything because I was tired and had started getting Strep throat and was feeling yucky. After church he had a home teaching appointment so Patrick and I went over to my moms and Jesus took off getting his home teaching done. When he came back I had Patrick drag this huge bag over to him and this is what was inside.
I was crafty and made this apron for Jesus. He loves to cook and his old apron has holes in it so I thought is was time for a new one. So I stenciled the letters and put Patrick's had prints on the pocket.I also got him a small cooler so he could put all the fish he is going to catch inside. He has recently taken up fishing and has a really good time. Im glad he does it because it gets him outside and enjoying the outdoors. I also got him a new butcher knife from a restaurant supply store since our knives from our wedding are dull and sucky now. We made sushi with it the other night. Big hit!
Jesús is a wonderful dad and I am so excited to see him with his daughter in a few months. Patrick loves him and asks where he is every morning.

We have decided to sell our truck. I have a new car with room for all of us and Jesús only uses the truck to drive to work and back so we really dont need the two vehicles. The truck is a 2006 Ford Ranger Sport with 25,100 miles and it is a V6 automatic. Its in excellent condition and the bed is lined. There is a crack in the windshield that happened a month after we bought it and we have yet to fix it. The resell price in the Kelly blue book is over 17,000 and we are selling it for 13,000 or best offer. It has everything in it. Power windows, power locks, air conditioning and heater, CD player, Tape player, MP3 player and cruise control. We love it but we dont use it enough to keep it. You can call Jesús if you have any questions about it. His cell is (661) 586-1994. Here is a picture of the truck that I got on line. Its the same color too.

I'm not sure you are aware, but Shannon Campbell Royer is in the hospital. It is very serious and she needs all the prayers and fasting that we can offer her. For details on her condition please click on the link on the side of my page. Her husband Paul has posted an updated on her blog to let us know how she is doing and how she is dealing with this new trial. Please fast and pray for her this Sunday along with her family and friends. We want her to know how much we love and appreciate her and all she does for others.

Here is a picture of his new water table that I bought him to play with out side in our small backyard like area behind our condo. It looks pretty lonely doesnt it? I left it inside for maybe two days and he played with it a little while but it must have been pretty boring without any water in it.So here he is playing with the box it came in. It turned out to be a fun slide and trampoline.
He has been talking so much lately and he likes to ramble on about random things. We usually dont know what he's saying but we do pick up words that he knows. We hear things like Motochoochoo (Motorcycle), outside, hot, down, too high, too big. He has done really well with making 2 to 3 word statements like "I need that", "roof too high", Daddy's hat, Papa's hat, I wub it ( I love it), I wike it (I like it), too hot, ok momma? which he says when I say ow. He also likes to sing. Sometimes I can give him a topic and he will make up a quick song about it. He is so polite too! He says thank you all the time and he will say sorry if he ever bumps into you or if we accidentally trip over him when runs in front of us. He will even say sorry if its our fault. The other day he even put his shorts on all by himself, I was in shock. He usually gets how the shorts work but he cant get his feet into the right holes and doesnt know what to do after that. He actually got them on right with his first try and pulled them up over his little bottom. He is too cute and I cant wait to see what he learns next. I am mostly interested in what his reaction will be to his little sister. He likes babies and seems to be very careful around them but they arent living in our house so it should be a bit of adjustment for him. I cant believe he will be 2 in September. I feel like it is going too fast.

Ok, today was going well, really! I decided to go run my errands which included going to at least 7 places. So I left at about 11:30 and I had everything I would need, Patricks blankie, his juice, and my grocery list.
We made our first two stops without having a problem then I wanted to go to Target so that I could find something for Patrick to play with outside. He loves to go outside and its something that I should encourage and support but most of the time I am just too tired to go to the park and play with him. Well we have this small grassy area outside our condo which I can sit on our small porch and watch him play but there isnt anything to do out there so I wanted to find something that would keep his attention in our small yard and keep him from running away. Well of course as I am passing all the toys he wants them all!! He is reaching out of the cart trying to grab everything.
Well after I grabbed this cute little water table and a big bouncy ball I headed over to East Hills mall to buy some books at Russos and then over to the new Gottschalks which actually looks pretty good, trust me, I worked there for 4 years! Well then I had to go to the store. Let me tell you how much I hate going to the store. I hate it hate it hate it hate it!!!!!! It wouldnt be so bad if I could leave Patrick home every time. His favorite thing to do is to take the produce that I toss in the basket in bags and try to eat it!! Through the plastic!! Well I solved that problem by giving him the green onions to chew on. So then he decided to use the mac and cheese boxes as maracas. Then he decided to make a tower out of the canned food which got too high and fell out of the basket onto the floor, so of course I had to pick all that up. Then I needed to grab eggs so I put them in the front of the cart by my purse since he only sits in the big part of the basket now. I thought foolishly that they would be safe. Well I was looking for something for a second and as I turn around I watch in slow motion as he grabs the eggs and opens them and by holding the top of the carton is dumping out the entire dozen eggs into by basket all over my groceries and all over the floor. So yes I am looking at 12 eggs all broken everywhere. I was so mad that I told Patrick to sit down and not to touch anything and I tried to clean up the mess as best I could with baby wipes and then I went and told an employee that I dropped a dozen eggs on the floor and then I grabbed a few more things that I needed and decided to call it quits and go home. I of course didnt get all I needed but I was so tired and mad about the eggs and sooooo ready to go home. Patrick cried for while for his blankie which of course was covered with egg muck but he finally fell asleep and I have been able to enjoy some peace and quiet. My mom said welcome to the "Mom Club" and I am just wondering how on earth I am going to it with two children.
