Getting away!!! :)

Right now we are enjoying such an awesome place! The Grand Canyon!! We went on a walk around the rim today and in the middle of the walk, Tay asked if we could stop and pray to God and thank him and tell him how awesome everything that he had made was. Can I just say Dave and I were both teary eyed from the prayer!! I love it!! What an observant and thankful heart he has!!!
Ok we just finished a yummy dinner and now it is time to go back to the campsite and make smores!!
I will post more pictures when we get home! We are taking tons!!!!

Ok so just like EVERY year at this time, I received a statement telling us how much our medical insurance would be going up every month for the following year!!! WOW!!!! I guess insurance companies think I magically make $140 a month more than I did last year!!!! So once again I got a demotion! Yeah!
Can I just tell you I spent forever on the phone with insurance companies today! I would call one number and they would say oh you need to call 1-800-............ So I would call them and they would say oh you need to call 1-800-.............. So I would call them and they would say oh you need to call 1-800-..............So I would call them and they would say oh you need to call 1-800-.............. Are you getting where I am going with this? Does anybody know what their job is? Or is there anybody that can help me? I am now thinking it will be better to add the 3 of them to my insurance plan. Not the best plan but will make more sense.
So sorry I just had to vent!!! Still haven't found out how I am supposed to add them. Ugh

So the other day Taylor started singing a jingle. David and I were dying laughing because he was singing an entire "" commercial!! I know he watches a lot of TV but I didn't know THAT much!!! These companies know what they are definitely doing by making these catchy jingles! My son now knows how to go about not having his identity stolen!!

so the other night, he was at my parents house and my dad and Taylor decided to take his jingle to the next level. they brought in a guitar!! quite the duet!! see for yourself!

Worth $5?

So last night at youth group one of the guys got us all believing we could pop microwaveable popcorn with our cellphones. Lesson = never believe a high school boy! Haha
But looking at all of the grease/lard on the kernals, my stomache started to turn! I told Kenny if he sucked all of the lumps of grease off the kernals I would give him $5. End result....Kenny is $5 richer!! Ugh VOMIT!!!

Buying a Car

Ok so while Trevor is in preschool this year, I figured I would start working out at a gym. I am still hiking, but i need to start exercising more if I want to keep up my eating habits (Culvers!) Plus with gas prices where they are, it is cheaper to join a gym and stay right near the school so I can pick him up.
Well this morning after dropping Tay off at school I went to LA Fitness to check their rates. What a joke. It starts off that they can't give me a piece of paper to take to David to show him the different prices, I have to sit down at a desk so a guy can go over them with me. He starts by telling me I can do a package that is like $174 app fee and 34.99 a month. or I can do one that is $299 app fee and only 19.99 a month. He then asked me what was holding me back, I go "Uhm the $300 start up fee!!" He then says well we are running a promotion today with Devry Institute and I can include you in on that deal and get you a membership at $74 app fee and only 24.99 a month. ok so I went from a 300 start up to only 74!!!!! in only 2 minutes!!! why can't they just make prices black and white! I told him I would think about it, he took my phone number so I should be receiving a call from him in a few hours! hahaha
then I got home and called Pure Fitness, they can't quote me over the phone they want me to make an appointment to come in and sit down with a salesman. ugh!!

The poser

Trev wanted to pose for this picture at Ikea.

A HUGE Success!!

So like any nervous parent, I worried about how Tay's first day of school was going all day!!! When it was FINALLY our turn in the drive to pick him up in the loading zone, he came out to the car looking kind of confused! :( As soon as he got in the car though, he yells, "that was the best day ever!!!!!" phew was I relieved! He just kept going on and on about how he got to see all his old friends, the lunch I made him was his favorite!, his teacher was sooo nice and cool, he had stories read to him, and his special for the day was art(his favorite!) I love the excitement!! Let's hope it continues!!!
After we dropped him off, we had some errands to run. first stop was getting my hair done..... there we gained our newest member to the household- a lizard named Little Rascal! yeah that's right, we found a lizard in the shop and Trevy wanted to keep it as a pet and name it. let's guess as to how long he will live in the habitat that David took him to get!
Then we drove out to Ikea. I love just walking around that place! Trev kept thanking us for bringing him out there cause it is his favorite place! LOL I think he only loved it because he was able to eat macaroni and cheese there!
I enjoyed today with David and Trevor. With Trev being the youngest, I enjoy the days that David and I get to spend with him. It gives him time to shine!

First Day Of School

Ok so right now I am in the car after dropping Tay off for his first day of 1st grade. Not know at what age it is uncool for us to walk him up, we asked him if he just wanted us to drop him off or walk up with him. He said he wanted us to walk him up! Yippee!!! :) so as soon as we got to where he was to put his backpack to line up he said, "ok guys, you can leave, I am going to go play on the big playground!" Kinda sad for me, he didn't need me there anymore! :( but then to my excitement he said,"wait before you leave, GROUP HUG!" So there we were, all four of us doing a family hug! So maybe next year will be the year that I get brushed off quickly. I will enjoy it until then! :) When I get home I will post more pics, they are on my actual camera.
