Our weekend in San Diego

Holy Cow we had a fun weekend in San Diego. We spent the weekend with our good friends, the Armstrongs. I only have a few pictures right now to share but I hope to post even more tonight. Some of the highlights...beach, Sea World, beach, Sea World. Here are just a few of the MANY shots I took.

First Soccer Games

Today was the first day of soccer games for Zachary and Johnathan. They both were so excited...but for Zachary, this was his first game of his entire short life and he couldn't have been happier. He LOVED playing. Everytime Darrel took him out of the game he was sad. He wanted to be in the game the entire time. Johnathan's game was first this morning and because of some construction delays there were only four people from his team there when the game officially started. Luckily more showed up within about 20 minutes and they had subs for the rest of the game. Johnathan played goalie the first half and then defense in the second half of the game. Johnathan's team won 7 - 3. They were thrilled.

When Johnathan's game was over it was time to wander over to Zachary's game. His team doesn't officially keep track of goals but I'm pretty sure they lost by a few (if not many) goals. It's not like the kids keep track though. Most everyone had a good time playing. There were a few tears at random times of the game. I was able to capture some of that with my camera but decided not to post those...just the fun stuff.

This is Zachary before the game. He was SO excited.

Below are some of Zachary's teammates.







This is Zachary's goal. He was pumped.
Below are some of Johnathan's great saves.

Labor Day Fun

OK - I totally shouldn't be blogging this morning, but I was so tired of me ignoring school that I had to get something else on here. This is the first day of preschool and I am SUPER nervous. I have so many butterflies it's not even funny. I know that they are only three and four year olds but whatever, I'm still nervous for the first day like everyone else. As soon as I'm done here I have to go find my flag which I put away at the end of last year and remembered this morning at 3am. I tell ya, I am a bundle of nerves.

Anyway, this past weekend we drove up to St. George and visited Darrel's sister and brother in law. They took us four wheeling, out to dinner, played soccer and football with my boys, the girls took Zachary out to ice cream, and we generally had a FABULOUS time. I don't have time to write a novel but I leave you with some pictures of our four wheeling fun. (It was my first time).


This is Alex
















Johnathan had climbed way up to the top of this rock




the next picture is Johnathan on the four wheeler




























Here is our family (minus Zach - he didn't want to come). For the most part Johnathan rode with Rusty, Darrel rode by himself and Alex was behind me. There was only a few minutes when we were stopped that we let the boys ride by themselves.

The upper pictures show Johnathan getting stuck and Rusty getting him un-stuck
The picture below should be with the one that was a little higher up in the order, it shows Johnathan waving from the top of the rock he had climbed but with my camera zoomed in on his face.
