Bug Check

We came up to the mountain last night to do some camping. It’s perfect up here this time of year. Usually it’s between 15 and 20 degrees cooler on the mountain so it’s a great way to escape the heat during the summer.

We were sitting around the camp fire laughing and having a good time when a bug came along and freaked us out. He was huge and made a strange sound. After he came to visit each one of us we decided to put the fire out and go inside the camp trailer. LOL

Once we got inside we found a huge black bug on the floor in the trailer so one of our son’s came to the rescue and got him out. He loves bugs so it was all good to him. Hehehe

So once we got him out things were good. We stayed up for a bit and then decided to go to bed. Kevin and I were in bed waiting on the boys to finish up. All the lights were off except for the one in their area. The next thing we know one of the boys jumps out of bed and starts jumping up and down making strange sounds. Needless to say it was funny and we were all laughing.

What ended up happening was a bug decided to come into bed with him. So once again the bug was removed and all was well. Well not until three bug checks were done. Sleeping bag, bed, blanket, pillow, everything had to be checked.

It’s the funny things we have happen that make camping trips like this fun and memorable. More than likely it will be a long time before we forget the bug check story and that camping trip. LOL

Spending Time With Our Boys!

Spending time with your family is important. Studies show the more time you spend with your children, the less likely you are to have children that get into trouble, do drugs, and other things. Some people question this study, but I would have to say it’s pretty close to the truth.

My husband and I spend a lot of time with our boys. We go to as many sporting activities as possible and we talk to them all the time. We’ve been really luck to be able to go to all of the away games with the exception of one and we go to all of the home games. We play the Xbox or Wii with the boys and we talk before, during, and after dinner. We also help with homework and whatever else needs to be done.

Spending time with our boys means a lot to us and we wouldn’t have it any other way. It’s very important to us and something we look forward to each day. I know our boys feel the same way as well. I know this because of a comment our oldest made a few weeks ago. This is what he said.

“Mom, I always know you and dad are at my games because I can hear you.” I asked him if that was ok and he said, “Yes I love it because I’m one of the few kids that is lucky enough to have parents that go to the games.”

Boy I’ll tell you what. As a mom that melted my heart. I felt like I was on top of the world. I knew all of our hard work and dedication to our boys was paying off. They saw what we did and what we gave up and they appreciated it. I loved it!

So to end this post, I just want to say how much I love my boys and my husband. They are my life and they are why I do what I do each and every day! I LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!

Basketball and swimming

Our boys are once again keeping us busy. This seems to happen on a regular basis during the school year. In the summer they don’t do sports so it’s a nice time to relax.

Josh is in the middle of basketball right now. His team is currently undefeated and they are doing great! They have learned so much and their coach continues to teach them new things. They are coming together nicely as a team and have grown into a wonderful team.

The coach is always showing kids new things and encouraging them when they do something wrong or it doesn’t work. Here is a picture of just that. The coach is showing Josh how to do something that he did wrong in the game. Josh learned how to do it and was successful the next time he did it. Way to go Josh!


Chris is in swimming now and having a really good time. He wants to be on the swim team in the follow when he goes to high school. His instructor is showing him how to do things properly and he feels very good about it.

Here is a picture of Chris jumping into the pool.


We enjoy watching our boys in the sports they do. We love to encourage them and help them grow and improve.

Way to go boys!! Keep up the hard work. We’re proud of you.

new-truck-plateThis is a picture of our new license plates. As all of you know I have two boys. So my husband and I decided to get personalized plates for our truck. As you can tell from this picture our plates read 2 boys. We had to make a trip to Cheyenne to get the plates, but it was so fun and I couldn’t wait to get home and put them on.

I just love my boys and this is one more way for everyone to know!
