Camping with the fam at Big Horn Ranch

My Handsome Boys
Landon Loves "Bam Bam"
They had this cool frog pond we went and caught frogs in. It was SO fun!
We had the opportunity to go camping with my parents on their property at Big Horn Ranch. It was a BLAST! I love going camping. When we got there we rode the 4 wheeler down to my parents spot, that they are still working on getting ready for camping and parking their trailer there. It's a really cool spot! I can't wait till it's finished. My parents have already put so much time and hard work into it. You should see some of the other camp spots that people have there, they are AMAZING! Then we fixed some yummy tinfoil dinners. Next my cute hubby and I took a little 4 wheeler ride. Then we went to bed in my parents fabulous new trailer or as Landon calls it, "mamma's new house". We woke up had a fabulous breakfast and rode the 4 wheelers down to the frog pond. There were SO many frogs, it was unbelievable. It was really fun catching them. We caught about 15 and my parents let them go in their pond out back. It was such a fun camping trip and a much needed mini break. Thanks Mom and Dad for having us!

Fireworks at the Frasers

So after we went out to dinner on Bretts birthday we decided to go to Bretts parents house and do some fireworks since I had to work the whole 4th of July weekend. It was fun, our family on Bretts side is always so fun to hang out with. Anyway, it made me feel alot better about misssing the 4th of July and Stadium of Fire with the rest of my family! Thanks Laurie and Steve for letting us hang out and do fireworks with you guys!

How does your garden grow?

This year Brett helped me plant a little salsa garden out back. I have been wanted to plant one for a while now, so I am so excited we finally did it! It's growing so well! hopefully it will keep it up! Here are some pics of us making our garden, and how it looks now!


Happy Birthday Landon!
My baby is 4 years old! We had Landons birthday at the park with our parents, Bretts sister and her cute family and Bretts brothers. It was a pretty laid back little party but it was fun and I think Landon enjoyed himself. He really enjoyed playing on the play ground with his uncles and 2 cute cousins. My mom came a little later and gave him the cutest present. She had a cowboy outfit made for him! HE LOVES IT! My camera died before my mom came or else I would have taken pictures of it. He got a lot a great, fun presents. He is one loved boy. We were sad that my sister couldn't make it because she was working and Cam was at football camp! We also missed Justin and Kalyn! Can't wait till they move back after the summer is over! They sent him an awesome coloring book with all sorts of cool forest animals in it. Land loves to tell me about all the animals in the book. They also sent him a cool flashlight from the forest service! It was a fun llittle party! During the day before the party, I had class so Brett took Landon to see Toy Story 3 in IMAX, Land loved it! It was a great day! I can't beleive Landon is 4 already though! Sure love you Landon!!

The Pony Express

It was the Anniversary of the Pony Express and they ride across the US on horse back to commemorate it. They stopped in Lehi this year, so we thought it would be fun to go and watch. We were only there a few minutes. The rider came in, they put the mail bag on a fresh horse with a new rider and then off they went. It was still cool to watch though.

Bretts Black Eye

So I got a call from Brett the other morning, as Landon and I were getting ready for church he told me that he had been hit in the eye and was headed to the emergency room. I was half delirious from workin the night before and told him to stop kidding around. He told me he was serious. So of course being the paranoid wife that I am, I called my dad and asked him if he could take Landon and headed over to meet Brett at the ER. When I got there his partner was with him and they were just about to numb him up for stitches. He ended up getting 7 stitches above his eye and a nasty black eye. So how did this happen? Ha ha ha, Brett would like me to say that he was saving a child from a huge house fire and he was the hero of the day but....He was replacing oxygen tanks and grabbed one to lift it by the safety cap on top and, POP it came off and hit him square in the eye. He wanted to just go back to work after the ER, but Captain Rob sent him home because his SCBA wouldn't fit due to his eye being so swollen. He was mad! He'll probably be mad that I posted this, but I want to remember it! Love you Brett!

Summer Fun

I LOVE summer! It's so fun to be able to let Landon play in the backyard. He got this fun beach ball that hooks up to the hose for his bithday last year and has been so excited to get it out again now that it's finally warm!

Day Out With Thomas 2010

We took Landon to the Heber Valley Railroad agian this year to see and ride on Thomas the Train. It's always a fun little adventure and it's the last time that Thomas is visiting Utah for a few years, so we thought we'd better take advantage of it. It was a fun trip, and it's always exciting to see Landon enjoy himself. We didn't tell Landon where we were going. We just loaded up and went and suprised him! It was fun.

My Ice Skating Boy

Just a Little Venting...

Sometimes life just makes me wanna SCREAM!! All of my life I have wanted to be a RN. So why can't I just do it already?? Well.. I love being a nurse but the whole point of nursing school was to get my RN, not just my LPN. That wasn't ever part of the plan. But it's harder than you think, I know that I could do it if all I had to do was just sit home and study my guts out. I just want so bad to be a good wife and a good mommy. But it's something that is a constant struggle. I would love to be the wife that could wake up in the morning and do some laundry and vacuum the house all before the Land even woke up. Instead, I'm zombie mommy/wife most of the time. Working full time nights are really kicking my butt. I've been trying so hard to wake up with my boys and help get Landon off to preschool and then go to the gym with Bretto. But, getting up at 9 am after working till 6 in the morning is just not doing it for me. It makes me feel like I've just been hit by a train or something. It really is my own fault. Bretto is so good about letting me know that it's ok to get some normal sleep. But it really is SO hard to sleep when you know that Brett is getting Landon all ready for preschool, taking him there, hitting the gym, picking Land up, and doing a whole bunch of house work while I just lie there and sleep. It makes me feel HORRIBLE! Useless really. I try and get in a few hours of studying in while I'm at work but the only thing that does is make me incredibly tired. I try and study while I'm at home with Land, and that makes me feel like I'm neglecting him. Oh and studying while Brett is home is even harder! I know he only works for 48 hrs and then has 96 off..but I work some of those days and I just wanna spend time with the guy, believe it or not. AHHHHH! My whole entire life is like on freeze until I get this beast done. I just need to buck up and deal. I know it will be like a thousand pounds lifted off my shoulders, but it's hard gaining that strength to get it off. I know Brett and Land will still be there and are not going anywhere, but it's hard, I don't wanna miss a thing!
