One thing we really enjoy to do as a family is go exploring. There are so many beautiful spots in Utah to see. This is just some of the some fun trails and hikes we've visited. Hopefully we will always enjoy this as a family, being outdoors is so nice and relaxing.

Starting back up

I decided it is time to get back to blogging. I have really missed it and am sad I haven't been keeping track of my kids lives the past two years. 
This is like a journal for them, and I love looking back and remembering all the little things they do, and the different stages they are in.
So I am going to start now. I may have to do a bit of back tracking but mostly start from here and now.

We moved recently out of our bountiful home. Our new neighborhood is great for our family and for the kids. Rhett made sure we all have bikes and we are really enjoying them. West and Rhett are going to the bike park a lot and West is getting really good at riding. It is so cute to see him ride!

Ever turned 7 years old, and I still can believe she is that old. She's doing so well in school, and almost done with first grade. She is learning chinese in school and has picked it up so well. She is a wonderful student and kid, I sure miss her all day and wish she wasn't at school so long. Summer is in a few weeks and I can't wait to have her home with us everyday. Westbrook feels the same, he is excited to have her home. She is playing soccer again this year, on the 7-9 year old league and doing wonderful. She is such a committed player and runs like crazy, never asks for a break and loves it. I couldn't be more proud of her. She also has been working really hard on getting her back handspring and is just about there. 

 Westbrook is 4 years old now, and really is the sweetest boy in the whole world. I could never have imagined that having a son would be as great as it is. He is the most loving kid.  He is so snuggly and caring. As I am typing this he just came and sat by me and said I want to snuggle you. He is home with me all day, and we love to hang out together. I know when school starts that he is going to grow up so fast so I am enjoying this one on one time as much as I can. He is starting to sound out words, and trying to read. His drawing skills have improved so much lately, and his handwriting is really nice for a kid his age. He is such a great kid and we love our Westy so much! 

I am currently 13 weeks pregnant with baby #3.
We are so excited for our new little one and can't believe its actually happening.
Rhett and I thought that 2 kids was it for us. But we had the feeling that there was one more, and we couldn't be more excited. November will be a great time for a new baby, and we are not going to find out what it is, delivery day is going to be so fun.
This pregnancy has been hard like the others in the sickness department. I have been so nauseous and throwing up a lot. About the same as it was with my other two. Maybe in a few weeks the nausea will let up a little and I can stop taking Zofran. Im glad thats available though so I can stay hydrated and still be there for my family. They have been so good to let me lay around and have been so helpful.
Rhett is managing Harrison Imports now and works a lot, he is great at what he does, and we appreciate all he does for us. If he is not working he's trying to get the sprinklers in, or working on some trim in the house. He never stops!
