Fist off-I went and got that test at the hospital and I do have a hole in my heart. It wasn't a PFO like they thought-it's just my heart having a hole and working extra I'm going to get it fixed-and as fast as I can, because the sooner I do so the sooner we can have another child..which I would have liked to have been expecting this month-but life does go on.

Then I thought I've been lacking in some pictures. Marie especially has changed, she's walking everywhere and her hair is growing like weeds-and it's just a lot of fun to do I thought I'd share some random shots.

-Marie was super cute at church on Sunday with her pony tails but she wouldn't look at the camera--good thing Brandon loves getting his picture taken!

-This is the first time I've been able to put all the hair in the back into her pig tails..but it fell out-it's too curly-but I was fun to do!

-This summer we've bobbed for apple quite a few times..the boys LOVE it! Marie likes apples and apple cores too!

-Here's some or my new bows I got. I found a wonderful gal on craigslist that makes them for me-for cheap! It's awesome! Way easier to get them cheap than do it all myself.

Well this is how boring I'm going to be this time! Have a fabulous day!

Airshow and other important facts

Saturdy July 24th we went to see the Blue Angels at the air show. We have gone once before so we purposefully only went about an hour before the real show started. We all LOVED it-it was just as amazing as last time..but getting on the shuttle to get to our car..that's a WHOLE different story-the air show ended about 3pm and we didn't get home until after 6 pm. It was HORRIBLE.Looking back now-I only remember that it was a fun activity-but at the time it was hectic and I wish we would have had more water and some food!

Here's a pic of the Angels they said they are about 18 inches away from each other..crazy!

This is the MOTHER ship-it's HUGE..but of course couldn't do as cool of things.

Tyler in a helicopter-but he didn't want to smile-and the sticker on his forehead is some political thing, he thought would keep him from getting sun burned!

This is Brandon's very first BUS ride. The shuttle from the parking lot to the airport was on a bus-and he was VERY happy about that!

On to other news. I saw the cardiologist on Tuesday and things are becoming a reality. I'm getting a test done this Tuesday to take a closer look to see the size of the hole and see if it's a possibility to get it fixed. So we're going to get that done-then go from there.

Grandma was right!

Okay-I don't know why it's underlined and I don't care! The pics are all messed up and some haven't turned-and I don't care-this is more than I thought I would do..I'm so behind! But we're all alive!

We went to my Grandmother in Michigan and that was a BLAST-of course how could it not be. However she warned me how one little poke with Asprin and you've got a bruise-yeah I'm living that! Sometimes my legs look like something horrible has happened and I can't even explain it! Every day wear and tear doesn't work with Asprin I've learned. I ate a Klondike bar almost every night there-and when I got home I was about 7 pounds lighter! I'm certainly NOT complaining!!

We had some good times with Dad and Grandma's friends Walley and Doris..the first time I've really connected with them-it was really fun (they didn't let me get a pic of them though)!Some nice guy at Walley and Doris' pool let us use his goggles-they were HUGE but Brandon had a good time with them!

Ice cream...for dinner! YUMMY!--it was a back up plan on the first swim day..
The tractor at the petting farm-they all loved it! Brandon learned that pigs don't sweat. We've had some fun with him telling people that and Tyler making up his own facts.

cThe hay ride!

uBrandon was sweaty one day and learned that he could stick a penny on his's MAGIC!

The kids and I took an overnight trip to Twin Falls! It was a ton of fun, they got to see friends and I got to see was a lot of fun-and really not too far, just over 2 hours-that's do-able. Sorry for anybody that reads this that I didn't see-it's hard to see everybody!

We've got ourselves another water girl like Abbie! It's so fun!

Oh yeah among all this-Eric got his eyes done-he can SEE. It was only painful a few hours afterwords and he took a nap..when he woke up he could see and he felt good!

This is a cute pic of Tyler!
While I was in Twin I bought a bike trailer from a guy on craigslist and it's not a cool one that's a trailer and stroller like I hoped..but Marie loves it! I still yearn to go on a ride with the WHOLE family..but someday we'll get Eric on board--for now it's a lot of fun..our 2 times we've gone.

Well I've got more-like the airshow maybe I'll be posting that soon...
