Bad Economy? Not for some

Last week I wrote about hanging out on the strip. One of the things we like to do is visit the MGM Grand and see their lion habitat, its free and Adlen thinks the lions are so cute (she says "oh so cute, like Tysen"). Well as we were walking through the habitat we noticed that they have new cubs, maybe 6 weeks old, and so tiny. Then I saw that you could pay to pet these little cubs, which seems like a great idea, for 5 minutes, at the low price of...$200! I was shocked! Are we not in a recession? And whats worse was there were people standing in line to pay $200 for 5 minutes...not for me, not even in a recession

Wasn't what we hoped for, but...

Well our anniversary wasn't what we hoped for, a weekend away without the kids was our original plan but we made the most of it. Justin and I did get a little time to ourselves and then spent the weekend doing fun stuff with the kids, hiking through Mt. Charleston and sightseeing on the strip. Overall it wasn't half bad!

4 years

4 years ago today I had the privilege to marry a man who is by far too good for me. I've been so blessed to have him as my spouse. If you think that I am kind, forgiving, generous or even funny it is only because Justin has showed me to be those things. Our lives have changed a lot over the years but what I love the most is that no matter how much it changes, as long as Justin and I remember to always rely on each other and be each others best friend we're going to have many many happy and fulfilling years together.

Thank you Justin for my wonderful life, keeping me on my toes and excitement for whats to come! Happy anniversary

An update on us

Just wanted to update you on what has been going on
Tysen had his 6 month appointment last week (although he's a month behind). He is 28 inches long and in the 90th percentile for length and 18 lbs which puts him in the 50th percentile for weight. He likes to roll all over and is thinking about crawling.
Adlen sings "old McDonald has a farm" and she includes horses, sheep, cows, pigs, frog and ducks in her chorus and I'm thinking about putting her in French classes, she says Bonjour and Merci so she may like it.
Justin and I celebrate our 4th wedding anniversary this Friday. Plans have yet to be set but we will have a good time I'm sure, even if it is just a game of Scrabble.
The Kitchen is still not finished.
