The Last Few Weeks.....

Be prepared for a long post!! Our computer crashed on us about a week ago, so I haven't been able to post anything for awhile! Here it goes...



ST. GEORGE!!
Me and a couple of my girlfriends, along with my sidekick Kohen, decided to make a trip down to St. George for the Memorial Day weekend. It was so much fun being with my girls!! We were able to visit our friends Courtney and Matt Orme down in Vegas, meet up with Doug and Rachel, and we were also able to visit with our friend Kathleen Price. It was a great weekend filled with lots of girl talk, no sleep, lots of food, more girl talk and great friends!! Thanks Jami, Heidi and my little Ko-man for going! And thanks Matt & Court for showing us a great time in Vegas...it was so good to be able to see you guys!!





GOODBYE FOR NOW!

Our good friends Doug & Rachel Shaw are taking on a new adventure! Doug has been accepted to dental school in Buffalo, New York! We are so excited for them to be starting this new chapter in their lives, but we are also very sad to see them go. Me and my girlfriends have been able to get together for some quality girl time together and Doug and Rach also had a BBQ so they could say good bye to all thier friends. Jami, Court and Emily were very missed!





and finally....


OUCH!!

Last night after we put Kohen to bed, Dustin decided to go for a quick bike ride. About 30 minutes later he was calling my phone. I figured that one of two things had happened...he either called to tell me that he was going to stop by Aron's house, or he was calling to tell me that he wrecked. Well sadly it was that he has wrecked! He said that he was laying on the side of the road, and that he couldn't get up, so I needed to come get him. When I got there someone had already called an ambulance ( I think the ambulance was a little overboard, but Dustin told the guy that called for it that he couldn't get up ). I could tell just by looking at him that he had either dislocated his shoulder or that his collar bone was broken. He was taken up to Alta View and his sister April was his nurse! I was glad that she was his nurse because he was pretty cranky by then! Turns out he broke his collar bone!! I didn't see the x-ray but April said that the bones were overlapping eachother!! OUCH! On top of that, he has some pretty nasty road rash all over his left side! If any of you have broken your collar bone I'm sure you'll remember that every move you make puts you in some pretty intense pain! So for now he is on sick leave at work until he can get better! Poor guy!

i have to say that when the paramedic told me that they just brought my brother in that that was one of the scariest times in my life. i had no idea what had happened and the ding bat wouldn't tell me! i am glad that dust's pain is better! he was a good sport despite that killer pain. let me know if you need help with ko or if you need dinner or something.

Rachelle!? This is going to sound really funny but Natalie (Tillman) Johnson found me online and then I started finding everyone on her website. Its been kinda fun because I've lost touch with everyone after I moved in middle school. Your little man is so stinkin cute!

Where are you guys living? My husband and I bought a house in Lehi in October and have been living there since. I just finished nursing school and am working. I'm 12 weeks prego and can hardly wait! Seeing your little guy gets me excited! Anyway... I hope you and Dustin are doing amazing! TTYL

Looks like you guys had so much fun in St. George! You all look so beautiful, it's fun to see those pictures with everyone. That's so fun to do a girls trip like that. Little Kohen is so dang cute, that one with his glasses on is great!

Poor Dustin! I hope he feels better soon. How scary for you to get a call like that from him! I'm glad he's okay!
