Today is Shane's 30th birthday. I can't believe that he is 30!! I feel bad because he is still in Florida training for his job, but they took him out for a nice dinner, so I don't think he feels too bad about it.
Shane is in Tampa FL training for his new job until July 3rd. So on Sunday, Kennedi and I came to Moab to stay with my parents for a week. Kennedi absolutely LOVES being at grandma and grandpa's house, probably because she gets away with EVERYTHING here. She also loves to play with all the neighbor kids. My mom has had to work all week, while my dad is on vacation, so I've been helping my dad with all of his projects he has going on. The last couple of days, we were putting the rock on the front of their house. Today, we have been taping off his 69 Camaro that he has totally rebuilt, and is getting ready to paint tomorrow. It has been fun, I love to do projects like that.
Kennedi said the funniest things today. She was outside with my dad before I came out and when she came inside to get me, and I asked her how the car was looking. she said "it looks so ugly, but don't tell grandpa because you'll hurt his feelings". It was so funny, so then after we got it all taped off, I asked her again how it looked, she said " it looks embarrassing, it is hideous". So those are her feelings about grandpa's pride and joy.
Oh and I can't forget to mention that we spend EVERY night at the ball park. That is just what you do in the summer in Moab, it has been this way my whole life, and for kids, it is so fun! It was always the highlight of my summers. My niece and nephew both play, so we have been there every night to watch them. Kennedi loves going and heeleying everywhere. She likes to go to the snack shack and get cotton candy and snow cones.
So far, it has been a nice little break from everything that we have been going through the last little while.
Last night was Kennedi's first dance recital. It was so fun! She was SO excited to dance on the big stage in front of all the people. No stage fright whatsoever with this girl, she loves the attention. My little poser!! These were her three different costumes.
THIS IS JUST THE REHEARSAL, NOT THE REAL PERFORMANCE.
Here is Kennedi with her best friends from dance, Libertie and Linzie. They are twins, and soo cute. She is going to miss them!
Here she is after the recital, I gave her some little flowers, so she thought she won the competition.
Ok....so I can finally say that I am pregnant!!! It has been a VERY LONG road to get to this point, and a very expensive one I might add, but it was all worth it. I am a little over 7 weeks along. I had my second ultrasound today and we got to see the heart beat. What an incredible feeling that was to get to see something that we've prayed for for so long.
Kennedi couldn't be happier!! She kept saying we were going to have two babies, but today confirmed only one baby....YAH!!
I forgot to post this picture earlier, but we let Kennedi ride in the moving truck from Richfield to Redmond. She thought she was pretty cool. My dad was driving it, and he called me and told me to drive up next to him because she wanted to wave at me and my mom.
We made it to Redmond yesterday around 4:00. I hadn't seen the house yet, and it is very different from what we are used to, but it will work great for us for a while. We had a lot of help moving in, some of the local boys showed up on their 4-wheelers to help us, and we had everything unloaded really fast. We got to see a lot of friends that we haven't seen for a long time, so that was nice. Today, we worked all day on getting everything put away and set up and we just about got it all done. I will go tomorrow to finish some things up and then we'll head back to Chandler. Shane flies to Florida on Sunday to start his 3-week training for his new job, and I get the pleasure of speaking in church, so I guess I need to start preparing for that.
Well, it's been a long day....but we have everything loaded and we are ready to go. We will leave for Utah first thing in the morning. It is a 10 hour drive (shoot me now), so hopefully we'll make there early enough to get everything unloaded before it gets dark tomorrow.
So....our house got rented out sooner then we thought it would. We are moving all of our stuff to Redmond on Tuesday. It has been so crazy. We didn't plan on moving until July 6Th or 7Th, but things change I guess. I will have to come back down here for Kennedi's dance recital, some Dr. appointments, and the American Idol concert (woohoo), so we won't officially live there until like July 3rd. So we are getting all of our stuff packed up this weekend. Have I said how much I hate moving???

6 unimportant things about myself:
1. I rarely eat breakfast. I know that it's the most important meal of the day, but nothing ever sound good to eat (especially lately).
2. I love smut TV!! I have certain shows that I watch, and I love them. There is nothing better to me then putting Kennedi to bed, and enjoying a few hours of good TV.
3. I ALWAYS paint my toe nails in a french manicure. I have done this for years, and I just can't stand it when they are not painted this specific way.
4. I totally LOVE to play volleyball. I could play every night and not get sick of it. Time flies when I play. I miss it! I haven't played for REAL since I've moved to Arizona, and I really miss the girls from St George that I used to play with.
5. Our family has moved 8 times, and we are in the middle of moving for the 9th time, UGH!! What a nightmare!! I hate boxing things up, but the nice thing is going through stuff and getting rid of things you don't really need.
6. Right now, I'm a little obsessed with blogging. I like to check mine throughout the day to see if anyone has left me a comment, and I love looking at my friends blogs to see what they are up to.
Ok, now I tag Tara, Melissa, Kendra, Trina, Kristy, & Rachael
On Saturday, my friend Lindsey and I took our kids to a park with a splash pad. I think the kids had fun, but it was sooo crowded. I guess we learned never to go to the big parks on Saturdays.
Today for church, I did Kennedi's hair up. She totally loved it! She wouldn't stop looking at herself in the mirror, and then had me take pictures of her. After church, she told me that everyone loved her hair today, it was pretty funny.
Here is a video of Kennedi on her Heelys. Her friend Blake got a pair, and she loved them, so we got her a pair the other day. We didn't think she would be able to pick up on how to use them, but she did. It is so funny to watch her.......
