Last week Dustin's sister Jody, her husband, and two kids came up to visit. It was great to see them for the time we did. Dustin had to work most the time but we made it work. Kyla idols Haley and they had a great time together along with Emma of course.
All the cousins together for the first time ever.
Front row: Jayci, Kyla, Emma, Presley
Back row: Haley, Esiah, Tobin (check out how Tobin is just chillin)
Typical Kyla and Emma
Can't forget about getting makeovers, WAY cute girls.
Right before we left to go down south Dustin broke out in hives, and we weren't sure what it was from. I was thinking the new laundry detergent since i've never used that kind before, but the hives were only on him arms and hands mostly. They were pretty bad. So he took a lot of Benadryl and Reactin for a couple days. He had to get meds at work since that is when it he broke out the worst at first, so he was drugged all day at work and had to sit in the office. Poor him eh? He was loving it. But after about 3 days of the hives and them not going down we took him to the doctor and he had to get some steroids. The first day on them the hives already disappeared. So I have to go get some new laundry detergent and lets hope that's what caused it. I should have got a picture of his arms, they were COVERED in massive hives and his hands were so swollen, his fingers were so bad. Poor guy.
I'm so glad we decided to make the last minute trip down south. Other than the retarded cold weather (Fort Mac is WAY warmer) we did a lot and had a lot of fun. We went to Waterton, played croquet and had a campfire in my parents yard, went on a date with Jeff and Britt and just us, which was a blast, etc etc.
Also if you haven't noticed already, THE GIRLS HAVE PIGTAILS! ha. It's not much but who cares!!! I LOVE it. I was SO sick of headbands you have NO idea. This is heaven. Even just this week I can see BANGS! I am one of those moms who will tell them when their older, "you didn't have hair until you were 2!" Well at least it's coming. They are so tall so it looks so funny with no hair on them. One guy asked if they were 10 months!! Really?? 10 months? Well he was probably 70, so we'll give him the benefit of the doubt.
So I have found a new hobby. One I NEVER ever, EVER, thought i'd be into. I used to think it was stupid and boring and now I love it. It's reading! I read the Twilight books, which took a lot of pressure from Jill when I was on bed rest with the twins and didn't give in until they were born and I was alone and sad for 3 weeks in the hospital. I obviously loved them. Well I just recently got into this new show on MTV, called Pretty Little Liars. You can go watch the episodes HERE, there are 4 I think so far. The books are a lot different than the show but it's really good. Kinda like a murder mystery of high school girls, and I just like it. So someone mentioned they have the books to the show, so I went out and bought the first one. Then the second, and third, and fourth. I read the last 3 in one day each. It's not amazing or anything, and sometimes kinda boring but I think there are like 8 books so they have to stretch it out into that many books. But the 4th one you find out EVERYTHING. So i've been loving getting that little escape. So if you have any books you would recommend to me, please tell me, since obviously i've read nothing pretty much since....maybe high school?? (other than twilight) Nothing gay though...
So this week i've been super lazy, reading obviously, but the weather is so nice in the mornings at like 8 and 9am but then it gets cloudy and threatens to rain, sometimes it does, but I don't want to really go out and do stuff. I want to take the kids to the spray park, and the normal park. I think we might get out today but it says thundershowers all day, so we'll see.
Although on Tuesday, I was sitting on the couch at about 6pm reading and the girls were just playing. Jayci and Presley were sitting on the stairs and Presley starts kind of choking/gagging (they were eating Goldfish crackers) and then she puked a bit, so I ran over and grabbed the paper towel and tried wiping it, well it just kept coming out. The closest thing to me to puke into was this little toy baby bassinet that was all plastic, so I grabbed it and tried to get her to lean into it. Well in the middle of her little situation I hear Jayci, who is sitting right beside her, start kind of well...puking! Crap. So I tell Kyla to run and get a bucket under the sink but she said they were all gone! So i'm litterally going back and forth catching both of their puke in this one little bassinet thing, and it was EVERYWHERE. Seriously a gong show. I had to kind of laugh though! Can't you just picture how awesome it was?? They weren't even sick! It was so random. After that they were fine too. I threw them in the tub, scrubbed the stairs and floor (all carpet by the way) and all was good. All I could think was did that seriously just happen??
Anyways here are the pics from the weekend. We went down to the Cardston celebrations on July 1st, they had a petting zoo, a bouncy um.... thing, and some other stuff.
The girls loved the bouncy thing, the big kids are so retarded though and don't watch out for the little girls so they got landed on a couple times.
My cousin Amie and I, we haven't see each other in a long time!
Eating ice cream at the big scoop. My sister Steph and cousin Lindsay work there. My mom also works at the clothing store beside it and my other cousin corbin works at Zums.
Ya i've got connections...
