Memory Lane...

Leaving Memories- This is a great idea
1. As you comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember.
2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments.
I thought this looked fun!

Giddy- Up

I thought this was really hilarious. Landen gave me this toy buckskin (it's actually a collector's horse so it wasn't super cheap- but everything eventually turns into a toy right??) because he knows it's my dream to have one someday. Well, walker has been playing with it for a few months. We have the "Eeeee!!" noise going on all the time and the galloping one too (everyone knows those right- tongue clicking). So on sunday he sets the horse down and gets it to stand up just right. Then he plops down on it like he is riding it! It was the cutest thing ever. He would get so mad when it would fall over. It was so fun to watch!!

Happy Birthday Jen!

Hey everyone! It's been a while since I have taken the time to post. Mostly because I am lazy! I am so excited though because I am figuring out how to be better at blogging and pictures and everything. Anyways, I am not going to go back a whole lot even though we have had an eventful summer so far. I was told it's better to start from where you are rather than try to go back. So, I am starting with my birthday.

Landen took me on a date Friday night, which would have been great all by itself, but he made it awesome. He took me up logan canyon and brought a backpack with 3 surprises about me. A book of poetry, my invention, and phase ten. It was the cutest thing ever.

We spent some time that night trying to find a cute swimsuit for me cause we were going to go boating for my birthday. We ended up not going for a myraid of reasons but mainly Julie had Kynlee and couldn't have walker too. So we wasted a lot of time but it was fun to try and find something. I ended up buying a tennis skort that I really liked because the shorts underneath the skirt were a little longer than most of the swimsuit bottoms- so it turned out good anyways!

We ended up going to the brigham city pool saturday morning and got there and found out that it didn't open up until 12 to the public. Someone had rented it out for the morning. So we made the best of it and had a picnic lunch and played on the playground at the park next to the pool.It was a lot of fun and I got some sweet pics of walker and Landen on the toys.

Walker wasn't feeling so great for some reason but we decided to go to the pool anyways hoping he would feel better. That didn't happen though. It was still a lot of fun- they have a slide like porter park's old one and walker loved riding down it with daddy. I took him a couple times but I thought i was going to drown him so I let landen do it most of the time. We only stayed for about and hour (way long enough for me) walker was exhausted and had a fever at that point. Landen's cousins all showed up with their kids too and that was fun.

We came home and put walker in bed then julie got home from taking kynlee to her other grandma's house so she stayed with walker while we went to all the little shops in tremonton. It wasn't as fun as I thought it would be but we didn't really take very much time in each one. It was too hot and some of them didn't have a/c.
I think it was at this point that i turned my phone on and listened to some awesome renditions of happy birthday~ from the clarks and one from the walkers.
Then we went and bought a bunch of fruit (my favorite food: watermelon (i used to hate it!!) kiwi's, peaches, raspberries, red grapes a mango) at Kent's (hats off to ry) so we could have a fruit bar and movies later in the evening.
Landen took me out to eat at the nicest restaurant in town (and no it wasn't wendy's...) and I had a 12 oz teriyaki sirloin steak! It was so yummy! I didn't eat the whole thing even though I really wanted to.
When we got home walker was so feverish and sick that we didn't get to watch our movie cuz we were trying to get him comfortable. He finally went to sleep at about 1030. It was too late to start a movie then because we were tired from the rest of the day.
When I was getting in bed Jax called me and told me happy b day and I listened to a happy b day message from jill. Mom also called to make sure I got the message and to laugh about the stuffed car lady!!

But I just wanted everyone to know how awesome my b-day was and that I have the best family in the world!!
