Another Great Weekend

Brock's birth family came to visit Brock over the weekend. Grandma Gossett and his two aunts, Jessica and Kaylee came too. Mommy Heather was not able to come because of school. We missed her very much.

We thought it would be fun to hang out down town and show them the city. We walked around Temple Square, made our way to the Joseph Smith Memorial Building up to the observation deck. Brock loved it when Grandma Gossett starting tickling him.

Later that evening we invited Mommy Channel over to meet the Gossetts. We took them all to a place called Jump On It. It was a blast!

Every time I tried to find Brock he was on this video game. This kid loves guns! I couldn't keep him off of it.

1-2-3 Jump! Thank you for the great time Gossett family. We hope to see you soon. We love you!

Our Crazy Weekend

Last weekend the boys and I headed down to Cedar City to visit my sister Taylor and her husband Abbel. Randy had to work so it was just me and the boys. It was Taylor and Abbel's spring break, so it was perfect I went down. They are both attending SUU and have lived down there for the past 3 years. Abbel had to work most of the time so Taylor, the boys and I hung out. We went to this awesome park called Park Discovery. Brock loved it! We went to the SUU campus where Taylor is studying broadcast journalism. She showed us the set where she anchors, and all the "behind the scenes" technical stuff. She also is a host on a radio station down there, we saw where she does her magic there as well. It was a lot of fun to see what she is doing. One of the nights Abbel watched both the boys so Taylor and I could go shopping. It was awesome. Thanks Abbel. Taylor is a pretty good cook. She kept us well fed. We attempted to make homemade donuts. They tasted better than they looked. haha. It was a great get-a-way! Much needed. Thanks Taybel! When we returned from Cedar 3 hours later we got back in the car and headed up to Burley, Idaho to visit Randy's dad and step mom. I forgot the camera, so I have no pictures. It was a crazy weekend, but a lot of fun. Now we are Home Sweet Home:)

Date Night with Brock

Brock and I went on a date night with his cousin Kailee and his aunt Angie to see Disney on Ice. Randy and Brody stayed back at home to have a little male bounding time. Brock and Kailee were excited to ride on the train (Trax).

Aunt Angie bought Brock and Kailee cotton n' candy. The candy came with these Mickey Mouse hats. They loved looking like Mickey Mouse.

Finally the show started. It was spectacular! Brock was glued the whole time. We saw Mickey Mouse and his friends, all the princesses, all the villians and then he saw......

...Jesse and Woody! He was so excited. I have never seen him smile that big before. When the night was over I asked him what his favorite part was? He said "seeing Jesse". I loved re-living my childhood through his eyes.

Thanks for the great date Brock! I loved spending time with you. Great memories with great people. Hopefully it can be a yearly tradition:)

Welcome Home Randy!

Gosh...it's good to have Randy home! Some of you are probably wondering, where did he go?. Well, Randy has been working out of town for the past 8 months. Randy has been working in the construction industry for a while now and these last couple of years have been really scary, due to the economy. We are so GRATEFUL for the wonderful company he works for to keep him busy, even though it was out of town. We count our blessings every day for the work in Castledale. Randy started working out of town last June until now. He would wake up Monday morning at 5:00 am, load up his truck and drive 2 1/2 hours to Castledale, Utah. He would return home on Thursday night, late. I was OK with it at first, because it was just me and Brock. Then another miracle came into our lives, Brody:) That's when it got hard. K, that came out wrong. Brody didn't make it hard, I was out numbered. I felt like a single woman, doing it all by myself. It wasn't easy. I give a standing applaud to all the single women out there doing it alone. It was only 4 days out of the week he was gone, but it seemed like forever. In a nut shell....We are so happy to have him home every night. Our home is back to the way I remember. The boys love it, and I love it. Welcome Home Daddy!
