So every so often I get an inch to make a blog post and today is one of those times  :) I have decided to do a little update of our family, life, and what has been going on lately. 
Let's start with the man of the house, Jordan. He is currently working at Weber State doing some electrical work for CR lighting and Electric. He is currently applying for a new job at Herff Jones. His dad told him about the job a few weeks ago, he has turned in his resume and is now just waiting for the interview. I am hoping that he gets the job because it will be closer to home and he will be making more money. 
I am still a stay at home mom and loving it! I also work at Kohls a few days a week which is fun. Lately I have been trying to get all of our new schedules figured out so that we can start the new school year off with a bang!
Kinzlie is now 3 years old (46 months). She will be starting sunbeams, dance, music, and pre school this year. She is so excited and can hardly wait for all of her activities to start. She also loves to drive past her pre school and check it out. She loves performing and is always singing, dancing or attempting to play the piano. It's especially funny when she says ,"and now for the finale!!" She is so full of life and is such a little comedian. Kinzlie loves tellin jokes and playing with her my little pony toys. She is such a great big sister and loves helping momma with baby boston. 
Boston is now 1 1/2 (20 months). He will be starting nursery, and music class this fall. He does really well in nursery which makes my job a lot easier. This will be his second year in music class and he seemed to really enjoy it last year so I'm hoping it will go well this year too. He is such a funny kids and a quick little learner. He did resently get tested for a little speech delay but he tested average or above average in all areas of the test. He loves reading books and playing with his toy cars. He is also really good at throwing balls (and toys). Boston can say book, up, please stop, snack, momma, dadda, sissy, no, go, shoe, and hat. He is learning new words every day and we couldn't be prouder of him. 
Well that's all for out little family update. Hopefully it won't be too long before the next one :) 

P.S. This past month we also had to get rid of our family pet Korona. It was hard and we still miss her every day but I think she is doing better now with a family that has more time for her. 

Boston's First Roll

Today Boston rolled over for the first time!! I laid him on his belly for tummy time and he rolled from his belly to his back. So, when daddy came home I laid him on his belly to see if he would do it again and he did! I was even able to get a video of it :) I couldn't be happier! 

Memorial Day Weekend

This year we lucked out for Memorial Day weekend because Jordan got a four day weekend instead of just 3 (he's working 4 tens so they get Fridays off). We took advantage of the four day weekend by runnin errands, being outside, and spending time with friends and family. 
On Friday we went on got new tires on the truck. While there I accidentally locked Boston and my car keys in the car (worst mom ever goes to me;(!!) . So, we had to call the police to come unlock the car but there was an accident that dat and that we're all the cops were. Luckily Jordan is really handy and had his tools with him so he was able to unlock the door before the police even got there. I was so heart broken And felt so bad but, thankfully Boston was ok. He was a little pink and sweaty but nothing too serious. I am so thankful for Jordan and the police for helping me and Boston! Later that day we sold the truck to some guys in Wyoming, had some dinner and called it a night. 
On Saturday we had a full day of shopping :) We went to, what feels like, every store in the valley! We bought ammo, fishing poles, clothes, a weed wacker, and toys for the kids. Over all it was a pretty good day but we were exhausted and so were the kids :)
Sunday we had a big cookout with Brent, spencer, Trissa and Taylor. We had it at our house and enjoyed steaks, Dutch oven veggies and potatoes, rolls, and Dutch oven peach cobbler with ice cream. It was so yummy and fun to hang out with family. After dinner we headed to Hastings to rent a movie where we ran into Trissa bad spencer. We rented the monuments men and bought brave for kinzlie. Then, we headed home, had a movie night, and went to bed. 
Monday, which was Memorial Day, we tried to fit in as much as we could. We started the day off by taking the kids to Trissa's house so she could watch them while we tested and signed up for kubex fitness center. We loved it and can't wait to start up in September! Then we picked up the kids, headed home and took a shower. After that we went and got some lunch, had a little picnic at the park, and took kinzlie to the little carnival there. She played in the bouncy castle and rode a couple little roller coasters. She had a ball! Then I went to my hair appointment while Jordan went shooting with his friend at Al's and Trissa came over to watch the kids. Jordan got done shooting and came home but I was still at my hair appointment. It took a lot longer than I was expecting but what can you do? The kids were in bed when I got home so Jordan and I had some dinner and called it a night. 
We had an awesome Memorial Day weekend and we are so grateful for the men and women who fight for our freedom. God bless America!
