Once again I am feeling sick due to the lack of immune system during my pregnancy. The same thing happened near the end of my last pregnancy. I seem to catch anything going around and it takes me a long time to get over it. But as I sat here on the couch and watch Patrick, I am practicing making small scrapbook pieces or things I can use on my blog. I will eventually create a header that I like and I will soon have a whole new look for my blog. But so far, look what I did!!! I am so proud of myself.

Ok, I am sick to my stomach. I could be due to the fact that I am eight months pregnant or it could be from in preparation for the new baby I have been pulling all the old baby stuff out of the garage and in doing so have found that a mouse has been living in Patricks old carseat and in his old boxes of clothes. When we moved into this condo, we were happy to discover that we would get an unattatched garage. Well, I put Patricks big stroller in the garage and I tossed one of our sheets rolled up into the stroller. About a month later I was pulling the stroller out of the garage and I picked up the rolled up sheet and mouse droppings fell out of the end and I looked down to see a mouse tail hanging out of the end as well. I was so totally freaked out because mice can carry disease and pregnant women should not be around animal feces. I ended up leaving the sheet in a pile in the garage and I cleaned the stroller with boiling water and Pinesol. Well I pulled out Patricks old boxes of baby clothes a few days ago, along with his old carseat and guess what I found?? Yep, mouse poop!!!!! So I have washed the baby clothes and I am washing and bleaching the carseat. I pulled the carseat and the base apart and in the base I found that the mouse had been chewing through the seat belt part and there was mouse poop all in the crevices of the base. Stupid mouse!!

We're home!!!!!! I actually woke up still thinking I was in Utah. I will try and recap the rest of our vacation in order and hopefully I will remember everything.
Tuesday night Jesus and I went to Deseret industries(correction-Distribution center, thanks Mom) and bought everything we needed for the temple that we didnt already have. Then we went next door to Deseret book and bought bags to carry everything in and we ran into Mindy Sergeant and talked to her for awhile. When we left I was so excited because I felt so much closer to the temple. When we got home we realized that we needed to hem the pants that Jesús bought if we wanted to go to the temple on Thursday like we planned. Well I have never hemmed pants before so I was kind of guessing how to do it. Well when Shelley and I couldnt figure out how to get her sewing machine to work I decided to turn to our very good friend Ann Anderson. I called her the next morning and she said she would love to help. So Patrick and I headed over to her condo in Orem. It was awesome to see her and to visit with her for like 4 hours. We talked about everything and I really missed that. I wish she would move back to Bakersfield. I am also excited because she said she would be my birthing coach. She is going to come to Bakersfield and help me learn to deal the pain of having a baby which is so good because I am nervous about having a VBAC. Sarah came over too and we all sat and talked forever. Well after Patrick and I left we went back to the Moreno's and Jesús and I got ready to go to the temple. We laid Patrick down for a nap and Jesús and his parents and his brother Sebastian and I went to Ruby River where Sebastian works and we all had lunch. All I can say is "Good food!" After lunch Jesús and I drove to American Fork and went to the Timponogos temple to do a session. I have always wanted to go inside that temple because it is so beautiful outside. It was even more amazing inside.
THE 4TH OF JULY
In the morning we decided to go to the Parade in Provo because we heard it was really fun and Jesús's brother was marching in it. It took us a long time to find parking but we finally did and we parked pretty close to Sara's old apartment which she was sitting out in front of. She drove down the night before and played games with us at the Moreno's. Well we werent able to sit next to her at the parade but we still had a good time.
Here is Gabe playing with the sparklers. He eventually was trying to singe his let hair off.
Here is Daddy teaching Patrick how to ride the skateboard safely.

Yep, I talked to Raquel about coloring my hair and she told my that Tuesday morning she wasnt doing anything so she could give me a weave to give my hair some highlights and here are photos of the process.
On another note, I went to my uncles house today and found my camera charger that I left here when we came for the graduation. I am so excited because I was worried that my camera was going to die before the 4th of July and I wouldnt be able to take any pictures.
