Fender Bender

My first car accident to date...........................hopefully my last!! I was met a friend and a new rec. center to take the boys swimming, and this is what I left with. I was reversing and I see this huge SUV coming at me. I stopped and slammed on the horn, but she couldn't hear over all of her kids. I heard a crunch and it was all over. At least it was totally NOT my fault and I am so thankful the woman who hit me was an honest person. She called her insurance right away and we're already getting it fixed on Monday. Luckily all the damage is on the door, so they'll just replace that. Vance was in the car, but thankfully on the other side. Basically, if I had to be in a wreck, this is the kind I would opt for. We'll have a rental car for probably over a week, anyone up for Canada???

Visit to Holbrook

Ready to Race

After Telluride, we were back in Holbrook for some more fun! And Vance couldn't get enough. If we left his shoes off, he would only go as far as the grass would take him, and my parents have A LOT of grass all around the house. So he would wake up, open the door, and just be outside all day long coming in only for drinks and food. Oh and the naps were so long there because he would tucker himself out in the sun. He absolutely loved being with his cousins Brayden and Treavor. Their fave was digging in the sandbox Grammie bought, but they also rode bikes, blew bubbles, played with the puppies, rode Grandmpa's 'tractor', went swimming, played on the hammock, you name it. It was a constant party and I really didn't want to come home back to the heat. This age with Vance right now is SO much fun and I am treasuring every moment before Baby #2 arrives.

Our Family
Okay, so I'm a little behind on 'updating.' We had a bit of a busy month but things have come to a hault finally. Where should I start. Well, first we moved in June from our appartment into a much more spacious house and we're loving it, especially Vance. He mostly loves the back yard, even though it's just the oh so lovely desert landscaping rocks. He also loves the playroom/loft we have here. The move went okay, better than our last move, thanks to all who helped us!! My mom came to help and brought her little dogs. I couldn't have done without her. The stress of the move and the pregnancy made me get sick, so I didn't feel like doing too much once we got over to the house. Then we left right away for Holbrook, then on to Telluride for the 4th of July. That was quite an adventure. We had never done anything like that with Vance before, and he surprisingly did great! Telluride was beautiful and the weather was amazing. I didn't want to leave, it was such a nice break. We didn't see too many fireworks because they started way after Vance's bedtime. We stayed for the first few then took the gondola back to our place. You could still see the show from the gondola though and it was quite magical. The next day, the whole gang went jeeping and Vance and I opted to stay in so he could catch up on his missed sleep from the night before. They had fun in the jeeps, and Vance and I had a great day just going on walks and playing. There was a concert and lots of free entertainment for the kids right outside our place. It was so much fun!!
