I'll be back soon...

I didn't wake up at 5am to go to the gym today. When I finally got up at 7:30am Spence, started laughing and asked what was wrong with me last night. What??!! He said he came home last night and I was on the couch- not just sleeping, practically passed out (No wonder my talk for Sunday didn't really progress). After that, I did a number of crazy things and didn't even move when the alarm went off today.

I may have been dead last night, but I feel great right now. We've been so busy with moving, finishing our basement, other house projects, and working that nothing else is happening. One of my clients is getting a financial statement audit and I have a never-ending list of questions to answer and schedules to produce. I've been working during naps, sometimes during playtime, and when the kids go to bed at night and sometimes it's pretty late making 5am really early.

My parents have the kids right now so they can have fun and I can catch up a some work and later we're going to the Lehi stock parade and rodeo. Thank heaven for helpful parents or I would never make it. I just made a promise to myself and let Spence know that I would not be accepting new clients for a while (aside from one I've already talked to). I have the hardest time saying "No" to new clients, but it's going to make me, my cute kids, and my fabulous husband crazy if I don't.

I've got "Update the blog" on my list of things to do soon, so get ready for post overload.

A Crazy Trip to Lake Mead

We went to Lake Mead the first week of June and it wasn't the kind of trip we are used to having. We drove down Sunday night and Brady and Em were going to fly down on Monday.

Sunday, when we got to Mesquite, we went to the Buffet for dinner and Grandma got major food poisoning. She was up all night super sick and dizzy. One time she got up and was so dizzy that she fell and bashed her face into the counter in the bathroom. She wasn't doing well at all. We were all up from 2am and on. At around 5:30 or 6am, Spence and Grandpa took Grandma to the hospital emergency room. She was admitted and they took so long to stabilize her from the food poisoning that they didn't even stitch up her face until around 1pm. Monday, Spence hung out with the kids while I stayed with my Mom so my Dad could shower and get ready for the day. That afternoon Spence and I took the kids swimming and went to Shrek 3. Needless to say, we called Brady and Em and told them not to come. That night, they kept Grandma at the hospital and said they expected her to stay for another day or two.

Tuesday morning Spence and the kids and I went to Zions for the day. The kids were actually pretty good on all the little walks we did. We rode the bus and got off and did a short hike at each spot. Davis and Blair loved the bus. We had a good day hanging out just the four of us. That night, they ended up letting Grandma leave the hospital.

Wednesday morning, we went to the Lake. We didn't camp as planned and we had a pretty mellow day, but the kids had a blast and the water was awesome as always.

Thursday we spent another day at the lake. Spence and I decided to camp over with the kids since we had all of our stuff and we thought it would be fun for the kids. That was totally wrong. It was super hot and it never cooled off in the night. Also, when we put the kids to bed, they wouldn't settle down and they ended up filling the tent and Blair's eyes with sand.

Friday morning, Grandpa came to get us and we boated for a little bit while Grandma rested at the hotel. We did a little two much for her the past two days.

The trip was a little more eventful than expected, but we still had a good time. Hopefully Brady and family can come next time.
