This morning, Kaydon had his dinosaur program. Kaydon did a report on the stegosaurus dinosaur. Did you know that they have the smallest brains of all dinosaurs? That would suck! This morning, Josh had a doctor appointment, so Brooklyn and I left Kaydon's program and came to work. Together. She LOVES going to work. She colors on my white board, after erasing important information, she gets her markers and draws on HER paper, she drinks my Diet Coke! :) I LOVE JUNE!!! It's my birthday month and I REALLY LOVE my birthdays! To begin June, Josh and I are driving down to St. George tomorrow after work. His team is playing down there on Saturday. He probably will not be playing because his injuries haven't yet healed... but don't hold your breath. If he can find a way to be out there, he will be. I am really, really thankful that he and I can have some time just to ourselves. It's different "dating" when you have kids. The kids come first, and they should when you're dating someone. We do everything with the kids and we love it and wouldn't want it any other way. But, it's always nice when we can have grown up talk and just be able to spend time together.

Last Saturday night, during Josh's game in Logan, he tore two calf muscles and irritated an unhealed PCL tear. He is out of work for two weeks and is not able to play. He and I went to watch his team play on Saturday night. It was REALLY hard on him not to play. He has always played through injuries, but this on has got the best of him. The second half, he took over the offenseive coordinator duties. I about vomited. It made me so nervous! But, he rocked!! He was incredible at coaching and it made him feel like he was really involved. He did awesome! Before the game on Saturday, Ryan called me to tell me that there had been an accident at the trampoline park and asked me to meet him at Davis Hospital. I got there to see my sweet Braxton in a lot of pain. His ankle did NOT look so hot! Diagnosis: very bad sprain, with possible damage to the growth plate. He is in a boot and on crutches. Colton has a black eye, currently. He was playing on a playground and feel onto a chain. Awesome!

I love this picture of all of us, besides Logan and Skipper, at Legoland. Everyone is actually looking at the camera! It was such a great vacation... wish we could do it like once a month!! :) Wednesday night, we took the kids for a picnic at the park. The kids played and played. Have I mentioned how Brooklyn plays tag? She points to you and says 'you're it' and you better be it, or else! It cracks me up! After the park, we went to Baskin Robbins for ice cream. I told the kids that this was me and Josh's first date... they didn't seem to care much, but I was a little sentimental about it. So what?! Everytime Josh got up to get some napkins, or to grab Brooklyn out of the freezer with the cakes, I would sneak great big bites of his banana royale! SO much yummier than my double scoop of ice cream in a cup! ;)

Day six, we woke up in San Diego. Everyone sort of went there own directions. It was really important to Josh and I that we take the kids to see the U.S.S. Midway. I am SO glad we did! It was incredible. The kids loved it, too. We were able to tour the entire ship, which is a retired aircraft carrier. The kids were able to climb into planes that were on the ship and the boys were able to go into the simulators. It was a beautiful day and the kids were super excited to see the Pacific Ocean from atop the carrier. Afterwards, Papa and Grandma met up with us and we had a picnic right next to the carrier. Then, we headed back to Las Vegas for the night. Early Saturday morning, we got the kids up and headed home so that Josh and I could make it up to his game Saturday night in Logan. It was the best vacation. The kids were really, really great in the car. I think that we were able to make memories to last a lifetime, and it was so worth it! Thank you to Papa and Grandma for an amazing trip!
Day five was spent in Oceanside, at Legoland. Fun little place that was! There are lots of cute little statues, made out of legos. There are also several rides, but oddly enough, the waits were MUCH longer than Disneyland, so we didn't get to do a whole lot of rides. Brooklyn did get her face painted and all of the kids walked out of there with cool legos to build. After Legoland, we drove to San Diego. We met up with my brother, Logan, and brother-in-law, Skip. The kids love their uncles. We met up in Old Town San Diego for dinner. It was a long day, but the kids did great. After dinner, we headed back to the hotel for some much-needed sleep! Fun day!
