First of all thanks Ali for the tag and the subtle hint that I need to post more often! I have been tagged before but I have never done it so here goes!
How to play this game. Post these rules on your blog; List 3 joys, 3 fears, 3 goals, 3 current obsessions/collections, 3 random surprising facts about yourself. Tag 5 people at the end of your post by leaving their names.

3 Joys: 1. Watching movies late at night with my wonderful husband after we put Wes to sleep. 2. Tanning, I have found that I really like to go to the tanning bed because it is so relaxing to lay there and do nothing for 15 minutes. 3. Watching Wes play with his toys, especially his "Cho, Cho" he will push his trains all over the house all day and he is so stinkin cute when he does it and that bring me a lot of Joy!

3 Fears: 1. I have a huge fear of Scorpions! We have only ever seen one in our house and that was almost two years ago and Eric is convinced that the bug guys planted it in our house! I shake out our sheets every night because I am so scared of getting stung! 2. Something happening to my boys! 3. I am terrified of spending the night at my house by myself, I won't do it so when Eric goes out of town I either have someone come stay with me or I go to Stacey's!

3 Goals: 1. To exercise and get a tone body! 2. Plan a trip to Hawaii with just Eric and I in the next 6 months. 3. Finish decorating my house, my house needs so much more help in that department!

3 Current Obsessions/Collections: 1. Calorie counting, I hate it but it is necessary! 2. Picture taking, I want so bad to be good at taking pictures so I take hundreds and beg Eric for one of those big cameras to try and become a mommy photographer! 3. Shopping, I think it is a ongoing obsession that I have a feeling will never go away!

3 Random Facts: 1. When I was born I was premature and I almost died. 2. I recently discovered that I think I have a little OCD, I have been noticing that I do a lot of things in a exact routine and when I don't I can't relax until I do. Like getting ready for bed at night I have to wash my face, brush my teeth, put my hair in a pony tail, take a drink of water, put chap stick on, use the bathroom, check on Wes, shake out my sheets, lay with a pillow between my knees and then finally I can go to sleep! If I don't do one of those things I literally can not go to sleep until I get up and do it. 3. I love to doodle, when i sit down to write out some ideas I have for work I find my self doodling on the side of the page. It actually helps to clear my head from everyday things and I always end up coming up with good ideas for work when I doodle.

Day at the Track!

Yesterday Wes and I went up to the motorcross track to watch Eric ride. Eric has been ridding his dirt bike a lot more lately but he's been going out to the Surprise Track so Wes and I haven't been able to see him. He went out with some guys to the track down the street from our house so we were able to go this time. Wes was so excited when we got there to see all the dirt bikes, he kept saying "mom bike", he loves Eric's dirt bike! He wants to sit on it every time we go into the garage. It was so fun to watch Eric ride, he is getting really good and he is so cute in all his ridding gear! Wes sat on my lap and watched Eric go around the track and would yell "go, go, go" as he waved his fist in the air. Wes and Eric have become best friends lately, Wes insists on following Eric around the house and if Eric even thinks he is going to go into the garage without Wes, he is wrong! Wes loves his Daddy and I have a feeling this preference for Eric is only going to get stronger as Wes gets older. It was such a blast to be out at the track and watch Eric show off his skills! I am looking forward to more Saturday mornings like that.

Check out my Slide Show!

Catching Up!

April came and went so fast! We had a fun April and I want to post so many pictures from this month but that would be a really long post so I am going to add them all to a slide show. At the beginning of this month Wes got the stomach flu and it was his first time he has thrown up and it was awful! He was so sick and he was not allowed to have anything to drink or eat for an entire day! It was so sad, he would follow us around and say "I want Juice!" and cry and then I would start crying. There are some pictures in the slide show of him when he was sick and his eyes looked so big. We were so happy to celebrate Aunt Kaitlyn's birthday by going bowling. It was so much fun, Wes loved to help bowl and was very sad when it was time to go. Last weekend we went up to Heber to celebrate little Eric's 1st Birthday. We had a blast playing with little Eric and enjoyed the nice cool weather. Wes never wanted to come inside! Little Eric is getting really big, he is already taking a few steps and eats everything he see's. Last week I took Wes to the new San Tan Mall and met some friends there and let the kids play in the new splash zone. It was so cute to watch them run around and splash each other. We have had a really great month and are looking forward to this one!
