Zoo trip

Rob had the Friday of Labor Day weekend off since his company was moving buildings so we took advantage of having him home on a weekday and went to zoo after Olivia was done with preschool. The kids didnt get much of a nap in so they were a little grumpy but it was a fun day. We met up with Rob’s brother and his kids so that made it a little more fun. We saw the bird show for the first time which we all enjoyed, too.
Zachy thought the spinning globe was super fun.

Zachy riding the train. So not worth money in my opinion but the kids LOVE it.
He just has no fear whatsoever.

Parade of Homes

Way back in the middle of August Rob and I went to a few of the Salt Lake City Parade of Homes while the kids hung out with Grandma and Grandpa. We were impressed by some of the houses, not so impressed with some of the others. I really liked one of the houses so much that we picked up a floor plan to keep in mind for when we win the lottery and build our dream house.
Cute pink little girl’s room, maybe this will be what the new baby’s room will look like!
Fun playhouse built right into the house.
Cool edge of the countertops.
Fun shelf/cupboard for over the fridge.

Fun picture framing idea.


I know that I have been really slacking at updating this, sorry everyone this pregnancy is kicking my butt. We are all doing well, the kids and I have been fighting some weird cold/allergies that we hope will be gone soon and Rob is working some crazy hours trying to get yet another project out the door.

What Color Are You?

You Are a Purple Crayon
Your world is colored in dreamy, divine, and classy colors.
You hold yourself to a sky high standard, and you are always graceful.
People envy, idolize, and copy you without realizing it. You are an icon for those who know you.
And while it is hard to be a perfectionist, rest assured it’s paying off!

Your color wheel opposite is yellow. While yellow people may be wise, they lack the manners and class needed to impress you.

Well purple was always my favorite color growing up. 🙂

Here Comes Baby #3

We are excited to announce that baby #3 is due in late April. I have not been feeling real well but the last two days I have felt lots better so hopefully this continues. Olivia is sure that it is two baby girls, I have an appointment at the end of the month so perhaps the doctor can check that for me! I would guess it is a girl since I was never sick with Zachary and sick most mornings with Olivia. Zachary will have turned two in Feb and Olivia four in March, so we are doing really well having a baby every two years!
