In honor of our wonderful servicemen and women!

Brady took the boys to the Father and Son's campout at Redrock again this year. I had a great time with Gideon by myself, and I was able to recharge my Mom batteries while they were gone. Camping is fun, so fun in fact that you have to get up with the sun. And that makes one tired dude.

Zenock is very proud of the lizard he caught

They both loved playing with all thier friends from church

Swimming Lessons

New suit

I feel like I am always in the market for a new swim suit. The bottoms of all my suits seem to not last much more than one summer since I sit on the pool steps a lot with the kiddos. The last several years I have purchased tankini's. This year I think I'm going for a one piece, but man, are they hard to find! I love this one from Harpi. Too bad they don't have any coverups in lime green...I'm addicted to that color :)

Southwest Eggrolls

I made these Southwest eggrolls tonight for dinner. They are amazing. To make it even more simple, I just substituted the chopped red pepper, green chilis, and cayanne pepper flakes for medium salsa. The kids really liked it, and so did Brady and I. I made them just on my stovetop griddle. Knowing what I know now, we would not have gotten rid of that small George Foreman grill we got for a wedding present. Didn't have much use for it then, but we could sure use it now! Because I don't have a grill or pannini press, my rolls didn't look as pretty, but the flavor was excellent. We dipped them in sour cream and more salsa. And there's leftovers for tomorrow!!

Laugh for the day

I don't know about you, but after listening to my boys whine all day, I needed a good laugh, so I thought I would share a good one.

Zenock: "My sunburn makes me hurt, so in the middle of the night and I wake up, I need to watch movies to make it better." We laughed. We tried not to laugh at him, but we weren't completely successful.
Don't worry. He never got up...silly kid!!

Lose Weight for a GREAT Cause!

We have some wonderful friends who we met at BYU-Idaho way back in 2004. I have posted about their little 3 year old boy Austin before, but I'll tell you a little about him if you don't know.

Austin contracted an E. Coli strain last summer, and it caused him to loose 11 inches of his colon and his kidneys will never be the same. He does dialysis twice a week now until he can get a new kidney. You can read in detail about his story here. His parents are actively doing everything they can to raise money for his medical expenses, so I have decided to join in too.

I am an Independent Distributor with Herbalife. They have awesome health supplements, personal care products, and a wonderful, healthy weightloss program that actually works! My husband, who needs to lose about 60 lbs, started the month of April at 293 lbs. He is now at 279 lbs. I can't believe he has already lost 14 lbs!!!

So starting May 1st and running through May 31st I am donating 10 % of every weightloss program purchased through my website to COTA in Austin's name. And from June 1st through June 30th I am donating $1.00 for every pound you lose on the program during that month.

Please help Austin! Loose that gut, muffin top, flabby arms....whatever you have, and join me and my husband in helping someone else by becoming more healthy ourselves.

Please, please pass this on to everyone you know. The more the word gets spread, the more money we can give to Austin.
