Football, footbal and more football

Okay this week has been the longest week and it is not even over yet. Last Saturday football started for Joshua. He had to go at 8am and they were there till noon. Then he has had practice, Mon, Tues and Wed from 6-9pm.. Because there are so many kids that play, the first week they practice every day for 2-3 hours and are basically trying out to see what team they will be on and what position they will play. In addition to the fee to play in the league, they need a mouth piece, cleats, practice jerseys, the list goes on people. They run drill after drill and play after play and the kids you think would come home worn out and not wanting to go back. But no, they love it! I guess kids really do love structure and discipline and believe me tackle football is all of that. I mean I was wondering if we were in the NFL here with how serious everyone is about it, including my husband. You wouldn't believe all the families in lawn chairs sitting watching the practices. I can't imagine the people that will be showing up to the games. So the teams have been decided and now it's time to move on to practicing with your team. I think I have a long road ahead. Wish us luck.

Happy Birthday Lloyd!

Yesterday my cute husband turned 36. I just wanted to pay tribute to him. As you will be able to tell from the picture above and the picture below he has lost some weight. He has lost 55lbs so far. He still has 45 he wants to lose. I am SO proud of him.

Every night we try to walk 4-6 miles and he has given up a lot of food he used to eat. He will not touch hamburgers, fries, soda, candy bars. He is much more diligent than me, I still cannot give up my love for diet coke. Anyone out there that has tried to lose weight knows how difficult it can be. After having this last baby I have struggled to lose the weight. But it has sure been great doing this together with him and it definitely helps to have each others support. Love ya Babe!

Sunday dinner in the Canyon

My kids have been dying to go camping this year. We haven't made it camping yet, but we did take them up Cottonwood Canyon and had Sunday dinner.

It was a lot of fun. It is so nice and cool up there. The kids loved roasting hot dogs and we walked along the trails and they loved throwing rocks in the river.

It did make me want to go camping, so we are going to have to fit that in before summer is over.

My baby is 6 mos old

We had my daughters 6 mo Dr's appt today. She now weighs 18lbs 10oz and she is in the 97% for her height. I just cannot believe that 6 mos has gone by already. I just wonder where the time went? We feel so blessed to have her in our lives. She is such a great baby. There is just a special spirit that a baby brings into a home. I wish time would slow down a bit so I could enjoy every minute with her. This is our last one and it's so fun to see her growing and changing, but on the other hand makes me sad as well because I know she is it and that every stage we go through is the last. It's bittersweet.

Who will she pick?

Okay. So I know that I am lame and I have no life. But I am addicted to watching this season of the Bachelorette. Last night DeAnna sent home Jeremy. Even though I didn't really like Jeremy that much from the beginning, I really felt bad for him. I could tell that he was really in love with her. I am a little confused of why she keeps choosing Jesse. I think he brings out her fun side and he is daring and likes to do lots of outdoor activities, which she really likes. Just to look at him, he's not the most attractive guy. I'm sure his personality and how fun he is makes him very attractive to her. My favorite guy though is Jason. I love him. From the first episode I wanted her to choose him. I think he's perfect because he already has a son and you know he is ready to settle down and have a family. When she went to his hometown date and they were at the park with his son, they looked like such a cute family. So next week is the finale and who will she choose??? What do you think??? Who out there is addicted like me???
