One fish. Two fish. Red fish. Alexis fish?

This week was a busy one. HA! Arent they all? I have something to share. Alexis. We went swimming over at moms and dads and we took her life vest off and she SWAM! I mean she kept her head above water she did good. I THOUGHT it was a fluke so a few days later we went again. She SWAM again. Keeping her head above water and being like a fish. She tires easy but is doing GREAT! She was proud of herself! We were proud of her to.

Whats on the agenda?

Matt has returned to work and the routine begins again. I took the week off with Matt while he was on vacation and we did a little of this and a little of that. NOTHING too fun. I had LOTS I wanted to do but nothing really got accomplished. Matt got to go jet skiing with my dad and they went Sun/Mon and hit up three lakes. I guess two grown men sleeping in the cab of a truck in the AZ summer during mosquito season ISNT a good idea (think if your windows are down you are bitten up if they are up... you are dying of heat) But they had a blast and cant wait to go again. We also got a few projects done around the house. Other than that we enjoyed each other and had great family time together.

Towards the end of his vacation Matts mom came to watch the kids at night so we could go out. She was spending the night so we could stay out as late as wanted... we had the night to ourselves. How wonderful... TWO dates in a year let alone a MONTH! So... we still had a few things I wanted to do... maybe you know FUN stuff. So first we go to dinner. After dinner we werent really sure WHAT next to do. I said there wasnt really any movies I wanted to see at the time... that and I really DONT enjoy movie theaters. We left to go to dinner at 5pm and was finished by 6:30. After we decided to go bowling but I needed socks so we went to Target. SHOPPING without KIDS? OMG I havent done that in YEARS! Well we got socks and left. Bowling here we come... 3 games later we were tired... sore and... tired. It was 7:50pm so we went to JAMBA juice to try to get a "KICK" Well... we were home by 9pm... and you have to understand that driving To and From home takes an hour each way. So we were gone 5-9 (4 hours) 2 of which are driving... hahah. Yeah we are old! But we had fun!

Where has time gone?

Well Matts on vacation from work so we have been getting alot accomplished. Have we done anything "FUN" yet... NO. However I have a clean house :) Hes gone away tonight with my dad to go Jet Skiing. He'll have fun. When he comes back we will have 4-5 days left of his vacation. And a day of that will be filled with Yardwork and Garage. So Ill have the other 3 or so... and we will go do a family outing and then one will be a Matt and I night. My mother in law is so kind to watch the kids.

Tate is taking more and more steps... Soon he will be "my toddlin toddler" Which of course I have mixed emotions about. Matt and I are ready to get out of the baby stage (since weve been there 3 years now) and ready to watch the children grow... and then you look into his (Tates) eyes and its hard to see him grow. He just turned 10 months old the other day... I honestly dont know where TIME has gone! Hes just such a sweet baby and good natured!

Hunter is getting big himself This past month his vocabulary has EXPLODED! He went pee pee in the potty the other day and we are going to work on potty training this week. I think he may be ready.

Alexis is my artist. She has gone from making lines a few months ago to writing her name and drawing people and trucks and trees and spiders and... well you get the point. She is doing awesome. Id really like to put her in a preschool as soon as finances allow it.

Well the kids are up from nap which means my blogging is done... Thanks for checking in!
