Free Ice Cream!

On Thurs., Sept. 25th from 5pm-8pm guests of Coldstone Creamery will be treated to a FREE 3oz ice cream to help promote the Make a Wish Foundation!  Click the Cold Stone link to find out more info.

And check out my “bargain bin” links on my ever growing blog roll on the right (under the archives) for some neat sites that tell about great shopping finds and coupon crazy deals!  I love this type of stuff so I’ll be searching and adding more as I find them.  Let me know if you’ve found some sites worthy of bargain bin status so I can share the deals (that someone else worked so hard to find and post and share so we don’t have to!)

Happy 4th of July!

Red Cliffs, St. George

Sorry for the late post.  I have issues uploading pictures!

So we went to St. George to visit family for the long weekend and had quite a blast (ha ha). Mikey got to meet his girl cousins who were visiting from New Mexico and he got along pretty well with them. Last time they all were together the girl cousins wanted to trade their youngest sister for Mikey, because he was cute I think was their reasoning.

We love Duplo Blocks    Suzy and Josh

Well I won the annual hand in the bucket of ice water contest- again!! I almost missed it, but they let me join in a bit late and I held my hand in there a few minutes longer to make up for being late. Breathing techniques learned in birthing classes really helped me out=o) At least they were good for something!

Mikey and I went swimming and he really became comfortable with the water, jumping in, going under the water, and walking down the stairs to get into the pool. We had such a great time bonding together. Mike kept the baby inside so Mikey and I played outside for hours!!

  

I didn’t get a picture, but I made homemade ice cream and it was such a hit with everyone! We’ve had the ice cream maker since our wedding, but we didn’t get it out of the box until about 2 weeks ago! The nieces and nephews absolutely loved it and begged me to make more. They didn’t even let it harden up, they ate it soft serve style.

So Mikey was afraid of the fireworks so he stayed inside and watched from the window. He’s such a cute boy! He still says “me afraid of the big fireworks” but requests we go to Gamma’s so he can go swimming and watch some more fireworks!

The best view

As with any vacation it’s so much fun to get away, but oh so nice to get home and sleep in your own bed!
