The biggest slack award goes too....


I can't believe it's been 2 months since I've blogged. Easter really? This will probably be a long post and out of order, but here it is none the less.

Mid May I and the kids drove to Arizona while Taylor stayed back to work. I wanted to have more then a week in Arizona and I am so glad I did. It was hard traveling with a two year old and almost 1 year old, but they were great and we made it. My total time in Arizona was almost 3 weeks. After a week we had planned for Taylor to fly down for the weekend and spend time with us and then go back. Taylor calls me early Friday morning just hours before his flight and tells me that he got laid off. Seriously?!?! We both couldn't believe it. Him and a few others all got the boot. Taylor still came down as planned and then went back and worked hard to find another job. More on that later.

We stayed with my sister in law Annedria and her husband. It was so much fun hanging out with them and watching them get ready for their first baby who was due at the end of June.

We got to play at the splash pads, pools, and we visited with lots of family and friends.

Now for pictures. These are not in any order. That just takes too much time in blogger.

Here is Ashton at one of the public pools. I still can't believe it cost us less then $4 for ALL of us to get in. They also have life vests for the kids, free too!
Of all the things for kids to do at this place Ashton liked walking along the water.

Back and forth, back and forth

We also spent a lot of time at the Johnson's. Shelley was helping Peyton play. She really enjoyed it too.

This was at a splash pad at the new San Tan Mall. It was perfect for my kids.

He was lovin' it!

Our original plan for our vacation that we planned prior to the lay off was to go to San Diego and since we had already paid for some of the trip we decided to still go. Instead of going to Sea World, we went to Sea Life. It's about 3o minutes north of San Diego and it was perfect for little kids. It was also only $5 for adults to get in and our kids are still free so really cheap.

It was hard to get good pictures inside the aquarium.

I thought this was a cute picture. My boys. They got to stick there head into the middle of a little tank of fish.

Another splash pad/park. Ashton going down a slide in his swimsuit.

Taylor and Peyton in the splash pad area. She is still too little when there are a bunch of big kids around.

Back to San Diego. I told you these wouldn't be in order.

I had this picture in my mind of a sunny day and fun in the sand and it was cold and windy. We didn't even stay 30 minutes. I was so disappointed.

I kept Peyton in my lap to keep her warm.

We also stopped by the San Diego Temple. It is a very pretty temple and the flowers everywhere where beautiful!

Most of these pictures below were taken at Laura and Mike Sullivan's house. They have a gorgeous backyard and pool.

Ashton in his boat

Okay if you look really close you can see the clouds have a rainbow. In the middle you can see some pink/red then lower its green/blue. It was the strangest thing and I have no idea what caused it. If you do please tell me. It was really neat and much brighter then my camera shows. It looked similar to the northern lights.

Where did she learn how to pose?
Peyton cuddling with Grandpa Mike.

Kisses from mommy and grandma

Annedria and Scott came too.

I think she looks like her mommy

I think he looks like his daddy
Peyton was just too cute so we had to take pictures, but she decided to pout through all of them.

Pouting and still cute

Okay enough photos.

Taylor got an unofficial offer from T-mobile. They said they wanted to offer him the position, but he will have to wait for his background check and paperwork to get processed to get the written offer. We still don't know about pay or hours. One of the bummers is the training group doesn't start until July 13th which is so far away.

Also, if you caught on earlier about my sister laws due date WAS the end of June and wondering why it's not anymore that is because little Treyton Scott decided to come early as in this morning at 2:58am ( 3 1/2 weeks early). Weighing 5 lbs, 14 oz and 18 inches long. I am so proud of my sister in law. She had a home birth and did amazing. Mom and baby are doing fine. Treyton is in the hospital getting some extra oxygen and will hopefully be going home real soon.

I have the cutest nephew with the most perfect little face I have ever seen.

His face IS perfect! Nice to see new pictures of the kids. Peyton is adorable even when she's not smiling and Ashton looks so happy in the water. Glad you guys had a nice vacation!

I LOVE all the pictures! Peyton gets more adorable each time I see her. I've been looking at the San Diego temple and wishing I could go visit it, so major jealousy about that from me!!! : ) What is the pic from the Sea ... something that looks like turqoise opals? It's beautiful ... all of the pics are sooooo great! Can you tell I've been missing seeing everyone?!?!?! : )

Love you, keeping our fingers crossed about the job!

By the way your kids are adorable!
