I couldn't help but smile when I saw my cute kids trying to help Grandpa in the garden last night. My sweet dad was trying to hard to teach the kids some new gardening skills and I can only hope they get their Grandpa's green thumb instead of their moms. I am also hoping that the poor cucumber plants survived the trampling they received as the kids ran around "looking for weeds to pick"! Oh how I love summer nights!

I think my kids have found the very best pets a mother could ask for. Right now many of you know we have this "lovely" dog Harley that the kids refuse to get rid of but don't actually pay any attention to...hence Harley has now become my dog (just what I wanted). Anyways, they are always asking if we could get another pet. The requests range from a rabbit, to a hampster, fish ect. and my constant reply is "No, sorry we can only have one pet at a time". But two days ago they actually came up with a pet I just couldn't say no to. They were working in the garden and they each picked up a few rocks and came running into the house screaming "Mom, we need water our new pet rock fishes can't breath unless they are in a bowl with water!!!!" I did everything I could not to wet my pants laughing. I rounded up three small tupperware containers filled them with water and whala...instant pet rock fish. I think I might actually have a new item to sell on ebay. I mean who wouldn't want a pet that requires no food, makes no noise, and can be "returned" at any moment. I should have thought of this a year ago when they were hanging on my leg begging for Harley!!!

Well today was our first official Art City Days parade since moving back home. It was the hottest day we have had so far this year...and my kids loved it! We had a great time watching all the floats and the kids came home with pockets full of candy, Popsicle stains on the shirts and a million Frisbees to throw at the dog. Straight from the mouth of Jackson "Today was the most awsomest day ever!!!" We are enjoying our new life here in Utah but hope all of our friends back home in Oregon and Las Vegas are enjoying their summer. As soon as we find a house we can't wait to have company.

Jackson had a few fun field trips at the end of the school year that I got to go on. We went to the local Pizza Parlor to see how things are made, and we went to the Enchanted forest, which is an amusement park designed around old fairy tales and nursery rhymes. It's kind of like Grimm Brothers meets Disneyland...FREAKY. But we had a good time anyway!!!

Well it finally happened...we sold our house and officially moved to Utah. Although we are now homeless and living with my parents. Who would have guessed...almost 30, 3 kids, 1 dog and living with my parents. We are actively house hunting and hoping to find something soon. I have been a total slacker on my blog I am posting a ton of events that happened over the last month.

A night at the school carnival without your husband....A DISASTER...oh I mean PRICELESS!!!
No, actually the kids had a wonderful time and you can see from their collection that they were very successful in collecting prizes. Steve happened to be out of town and was really sad he couldn't be there. Jackson is wearing a dinosaur mask and he refused to take it off to play any of the games; try throwing a ring on a two-liter bottle with that thing on...amazingly enough he actually won. The best part of the night was when Jackson decided to put on the new swimming goggles he won and march around the book fair saying..."hey guys like my new glasses, hey guys why is it so foggy in here, hey guys wait up!!!" That kid always makes me laugh.
