Good Dreams!

I woke up this morning with Sean next to my bed asking "Where is my Lightning McQueen?" I asked "What Lightning McQueen"? He said with a big smile "The big one we got at the store" and I said "Oh Sean, you must have been dreaming did you have a good dream"? And he went bolistic screaming and hitting me and saying NO. I of course told him to go to his room. However as he left I couldn't help smiling and feeling for the kid. Sometimes it is hard to wake up from a dream and realize it was just a dream!


I asked all the kids when they woke up if they had a good dream. Here is what my kids dreamed about last night...

Sean: Buying a big Lightning McQueen at the store!

Kaylee: Was going for a walk with her Grandma and Mable (my mom's dog). She said "they were having a good time".

Brynlee: Was an explorer in a jungle and saw a lion, tiger, elephant, parrots and she also dreamed she went to Antartica and saw penquins and polar bears and when she got back home a man paid her for the pictures she took and she got to buy a necklace with white beads and a flower and a bracelet.

Night time is one of my favorite times when ALL of my children are sleeping and having good dreams (doesn't happen very often at our house).

This picture was taken on an afternoon drive a few months ago.

Pioneer Day!

We had a great 24th of July! I love that Patrick works for the State and got it off work (sometimes I take that for granted and assume everyone gets the holidays off). We spent the day out doors at Oquirrh Lake in Daybreak. They have so much to do there. We swam in the lake, played in the sun and went Kayaking with my family. It was a beautiful, hot day and it was fun to spend it together. If you haven't been to daybreak and walked around the lake or played at their fun parks you should! What a wonderful state we live in.

Blog Updates (more to come)- FINALLY

Okay so one of my goals this summer was to update and keep the blog updated (well at least we will try for monthly). So it is now almost mid July and I figured I better get cracking. I swear it must take me 3 times as long as others to post things, I still have a lot to learn about blogging (It just took my an hour to fiqure out how to change the background). Anyways for any of you out there who look at our blog (most of you have probably given up). I am going to try better. I just posted somethings from back in April and May!
