I could have this weekend last forever

what a weekend...
so very busy
a few things didn't go right
we missed more than we originally planned
but we were together and that's all I could ask for.

On Saturday we did lots of swimming
with family we don't get to see all the time

After burning our buns we rushed home to change and head over to my brothers surprise bday party.

Happy Birthday Big Brother

We stole some balloons because its only appropriate to have Makenzie apart of such a party.

Arriving only few minutes late we made it to the REAL game.
We love soccer and had a lot of fun with the kiddos.

loud music

If you live in Utah I'm sure you have heard all about the Gomez family and their incredible story. If you haven't you should look them up! Their family is having a new house built this week with Extreme Home Makeover.  I believe it will air in the fall.  Jonah Gomez has an amazing story and this is the second game we have attended that Jonah was the start of the night.  The first one was last year when David Archuletta (however you spell his name) sang to him at half time and the other was this game.  Extreme Makeover was there and asking the crowd to sign up to become bone marrow donors and possibly find a match for little Jonah. Ryan and I have made it a point to be any kind of donor possible since our Makenzie became a donor last year. I hope everyone else out there makes sure they are to! You have no idea who's child you could save.
- this is one of the guys from EHM on the field, kind of hard to see -

Our section was the one that got to hold a big banner for Jonah who was watching from wherever his family is on vacation.  I still dont know what this banner said but I know it had an O in it.
Kind of cool to see everyone jumping up and down trying to get this sign to move as much as possible screaming in excitment for this little boy.

We enjoyed the rest of the game which REAL won!
I introduced these kids to one of my most favorite desserts- Ice cream nachos. You would like it to!

Came home and everyone was asleep by 10 pm.
Sunday we woke up early, grabbed our suits and headed to the pool. 
It was all ours for most of the morning.
Ryan taught D lots of new tricks including diving for items at the bottom of the pool. I was utterly paranoid with both these kids in the water. I have a huge fear of water so I was like a leach to both of them. I think they got a bit annoyed but I don't care.
T spent most of the time in the pool with both a life jacket and a floaty on. 
The one time I got out to take a picture I made her hold my toe so I knew she was right there.

Poor T scratched the crap out of her tush on Saturday so we had her swim in PJ bottoms.
After we swallowed a gallon of water we 
played on the playground
went to the asian buffet for lunch
grabbed an ice cream cake for Ryan's sister
watched 101 dalmatians
went to the in laws for a birthday dinner
found my phone that I lost at the grocery store
came home to watch another movie and have treats before bed

Yeah, these kids are pretty fun. 
I loved having the noise, chaos, running around, endless hungry belly's, bath after bath, clipping finger nails, outfit changes, temper tantrums, time outs, eating healthy, cuts and scraps, sleeping in the middle, no sleeping because of the one in the middle, playing, laughing, tickling, hiding, seeking, kisses and loves. I cant wait until we have our kind of normal back. The quiet is killing me.
