Summer fun

It's true, when it comes to updating this thing I am the BIGGEST slacker of all time. It may seem like there's nothing going on in our boring lives, but lets be serious....I have a Stella and a Lincoln to entertain my days :)

What we have been up to:

The end of May Curtis' good buddy Josh was in town with his wife Melissa and we went to the AZ Science Center. I've been there a few times, but I still love it. It was soo cute to hear Stella say "I do science," every time she would go into a different room or try a different experiment. We had a lot of fun, and Stella liked hanging out with Josh and Melissa. She even invited them over to her house by saying "You go my house? Yeah you go my house." It was pretty funny.

In the beginning of June Lincoln shared a birthday party with his Uncle Clarkie. We got to go to the family reunion. And towards the end of June we got to go to Grandma's Cabin again with Nancy, Grandma Jean, Grandma Jean's friend Aiko, Ben, Clark, Olivia and Ben's friend Kawika and his brother Kalani (not sure if I'm spelling those right lol). It was a blast!

July we got to go to the cabin yet again for another reunion and the following week my mom and the kids and I went up with Grandma Jean, Nancy, Olivia, Ben and Marie was there with her little ones. It was so much fun! My mom loved it! We pretty much went on quad and prowler rides the WHOLE TIME! haha. I told Curtis he needs to get me a quad. To end the summer we went to a ward family campout, which was pretty fun. Stella sure knows how to flirt it up. Her crush Denson was there and he was a good sport to let Stella follow him around and talk his ear off haha.

Here are a few pics to highlight the fun :

Lincoln liked the swings.

Loved the rain at the cabin!

Needing some attention

His face in this picture makes me laugh. Doesn't seem to happy to be the ball.

Stella loves to hold Clark's snake every time we're over at Nanny's.


Stella's happy countenance when she's at the cabin. She absolutely LOVES it!

My Dream Car

I have recently informed Curtis that I need a new car and that I refuse to settle for something that is not cute. I figure a cute car is like cute clothes and if I drive a cute car, then I will look cuter.

The problem is, Curtis absolutely refuses to have a car payment.

So he did some research and found a new dream car for me. It would be affordable but still classy. A very classic look. Driving it will definitely make me look cute.

I am so thankful to have such a sweet husband. If he refuses to buy me my dream car, he would take the time to find me a new dream car. That is true love, in my opinion.

So now, the moment you have all been waiting for... The unveiling of my new and improved dream car:

Yes, that is right. A station wagon!

But not just any station wagon. Curtis promises that he will buy me something really tasteful. He absolutely insists that there be wood paneling- but not just any wood paneling. He won't buy anything that looks like cheap soft wood. It will definitely be something that looks like expensive, classy hardwoods (we're thinking cherry wood or mahogany).

He also insists that I have the most convenient option. That's right ladies, we're talking third row rear facing seats.

Now, I know it is probably bad form to brag about a car I don't even own yet. But this next feature is so amazing, I can't help myself. Curtis says that since we will save so much money, we may even be able to paint the hood with a cool flame design.

I'm so thankful to my sweet husband. All this time I thought I wanted a car like a Mazda CX-9, Honda Pilot or a Nissan Armada, but all I really needed was for my awesome husband to show me what I really wanted.
