Lightening Storm!!

video

We love the rain, lightening, and thunder.. I could just sit and watch the rain fall and listen the thunder, but today as Josh was home with the kids it came a little to close, he heard the thunder and said that he thought it hit in our back yard and when he went to look this is what he saw. This is at the condos just behind our house. Luckily it was only a tree that got burned after it was hit by lightening.

Fishing Trip!!

Saturday we took the kids and went fishing with my family, we went up to strawberry reservoir. We headed out at 5:30 in the morning. Strawberry was always mom's favorite place to go fishing so on the drive up there she was on everyone's mind and when we all got there there was a few tears. The day was really enjoyable, we love to spend time with the family whenever we can even though there was one special person that wasn't there with us, and then there were even more tears on the way home just knowing she wasn't able to celebrate our few catches with us.

Dakoda loved to play with the crawdads and even brought one home with him that he said is going to be his pet!!(We'll see how long it lives) M'Tali didn't want to hold the fish so this is the best picture we got of her!!


Dakoda's fish kept hitting him in the tummy so he had to hold it far away from him


Dallin is an expert fishermen and know how to hold his fish...lol that's what he said



The first catch of the day!!! Josh casted his pole out and within just a few minutes he had this fish!! We thought that this was going to be a good sign of the fishing!!
All 8 of the fish that were caught were all caught on Josh's fishing pole, we were all getting mad that he was the only one that was catching fish, but then I thought that the reason why this was happening was because grandma always loved to watch her grandchildren fish and to catch fish. They always took M'Tali fishing with them and it was so important to her to make sure that M'Tali got a fish even though this didn't always happen and so she knew that Josh being the person he is would allow the kids to reel his fish in, and this was the only way that the kids would get a fish....so every fish that was caught was reeled in by the kids, it didn't matter to them that they were caught on Josh's pole, to them it was THEIR fish. All the kids got to reel in a fish except for my niece Kaydee and Josh tried so hard to get her one, he even left his pole out there in the dark while we cleaned up hoping to get one for her but was unable to. I know that she enjoyed every minute of that.

Time Sure Does Fly By!!

It's so hard to believe that Logan is now 3 months old, It has been a very long and hard 3 months, and he has changed so much.



Logan Loves to talk and coo and I love to just sit and listen to him try and make noises.
He is such a happy baby with all that he has been through




He loves to eat his hands and is always trying to get both of them in his mouth, his fingers are so long and skinny that he is always choking himself on them.




Logan has been though alot the past 3 months and they still haven't found out anything, he has been tested for Pyloric Stenosis, Cystic Fibrosis, and all the childhood diseases that they can think of that would prevent him from growing, but so far everything has come back negative, other then the severe acid reflux which I am so thankful for but it's so hard not having answers. He is seen by his own home health nurse 2-3 times a week and sees his pediatrician every week. We were hoping that by the time he was 3 months that he would be up to his birth weight but that didn't happen so I guess our goal is that he will be there by 4 months.
We are so thankful for all the prayers that have been offered on Logan's behave and we hope that he will continue to grow, and get stronger everyday. He is such a happy baby. We love him so much and are so thankful for the few weeks he had to spend with grandma here on earth.
Logan's Stats are:
8lbs 7oz (0.09%tile)
23 inches long (13.78%tile)
14.5 inch head circumference(10.2%tile)

Weekend At The Cabin!!

This last weekend we took a break from everything and headed up to the cabin, it was so fun and relaxing. M'Tali stayed home and spent some time with Grandpa which she does quit often and really enjoys

My 3 cute boys enjoying the great outdoors.

Dallin and Dakoda playing outside!!
Dallin loves to ride the four wheeler and was always begging us to go on ANOTHER ride:)


Daddy and Dakoda coming back from a ride...Dakoda jumped off the four wheeler and said "We saw 10 deer" They love to go look for deer.
