No vaca in store for us...but something else is!

One last thought for the day. This past week, my whole family has been at the Gorge, one of my favorite vacation spots for the summer, but this year we weren't able to go because our brand new babe. So I posted some of last summers pictures of mine and Jose's "professional" boarding and skiing skills to remind me that I will be able to go next year, and that my life isn't over because I had to miss one summer. It is the first time that I have missed the trip! Wish we could have been there.

But in the mean time, Jo told me that we could have some fun of our own here at home, and we did, we certainly did.....

This month, our lease on the Durango was finally up, so I told Jo that we shoud go car shopping just to look around and see what we would want to purchase, just to get an idea. And the first thing out of his mouth was "Don't get any ideas!" So we broused this week just for fun and...well... we ended up getting a new car! But instead of leasing it we own it. (Well, we will own it when the loan is up right?!) She isn't just a beaut!, but she is also very practicle. You have to just imagine this, we now have a family of five, in which one member includes a big, bulky car seat. But just imagine us all jammed into one little Honda Civic!! Talk about family toegetherness! Our new car includes third row seating which suits our family perfectly now, considering that we probably won't be taking it anywhere because of the cost of gas!? Right? In that case she makes a great drive way decoration!

My Babe!

Just last night, Angela, Kim, and I went out to dinner to catch up before Kim moves away to Denver. Anyway, when Eva was just a few weeks old Kim came over and used her amazing photography skills and took some great pictures of her. I just picked a few to show how she captured some beautiful features of my babe!

Dang Camera!

Someone once gave me some advice about buying a nice new camera when had Eva but we have yet to follow because of bad timing. (Isn't it always?) So weeks before my due date I took my camera to be fixed because the flash didn't work, they told me it would be at least 6 weeks, but funny, my baby is 5 weeks now and I still don't have my DANG CAMERA! So we have to use the camera that is on our video camera which isn't too bad but doesn't do my beautiful babe justice. But I wanted to give everyone an update on how much she has changed! Eva, today, is % weeks and 1 day. And she is still tiny but I can't believe how much she has already grown. These
two pictures express her attitude through out most of the day now. She doesn't enjoy being in a room by herself, so she makes herself and her feelings known. Generally she is happy and she always keeps a smile on my face. Sometimes I wonder how we were sent such sweet spirit, I just need to learn to absorb it and also be able to teach it. She is such a blessing in our lives and can't imagine her not in it

Hannah Montana or Miley Cyrus?

OHH MY GOSH! Hannah Montana came to Utah! On the 4th of July we were 5 of many thousands of people that were able to attend the Stadium of Fire. It was jammed pack full of little screaming girls. But to my disappointment, she sang mostly songs that her fans didn't know because they were off her new album, so none of the little girly's were able to even sing along. As pictured, its seems to be that Jose is the one with the biggest smile on his face. Who out of those 4 is the most excited to be there? It was good fun, good entertainment, but my favorite was the blue man group! It made me hungry for a trip to Vegas! Happy 4th of July, and always be greatful for your Freedom!
