The other day we had a lot of fun going boating and enjoying the beautiful sunshine. It was Max and Chloe's first time on the boat and they loved it. Max was a little nervous at first, but then he loved it. Chloe on the other hand loved it from the start. She kept laughing especially when the water would splash her.

Greenlake and Sewer park

The day after we had the little ER trip, I met up with Kim and Heidi at the lake where they live. We walked around the lake and then let the kids play at the playground. It was a gorgeous day to be outside and Max did great considering that the day before he was drugged up with medicine.
I used to make fun of these bikes because I just thought they were weird because they had no pedals and I just didnt think that would be fun. But then Max got on Skye's bike and he had so much fun. It took him some time to get use to it, but he was slowly getting it. I think I might have to get him one.

After Greenlake, Paul and I decided to have a picnic down at Sewer Park because it was such a nice day. There were so many people just enjoying the sunshine. It was such a great day with the sun shinny of the water. It was gorgeous. I love Seattle when it is nice and sunny. It is so pretty. I just wish that there was more sunshine and less clouds.

Flight Museum and then ER visit

A couple of weeks ago, Max and I were able to visit the flight museum with Eirik and Skye. Max had a blast looking at all the airplanes. Every where we looked he would say airplane, airplane, airplane. He was so excited to see all the different kinds of airplanes. Some were small and some were very big. In the museum there was a kid area which Max loved because he was able to sit in an airplane and helicopter which was very cool.

After the museum we went to Max's doctor appointment which later turned into an ER visit instead. Max had a bug bite, I think it was at least and well it was disgusting and not pretty and he would not let anyone touch it. I took him to the doctors and later found out that it was infected and that I needed to take him to the ER right away before it got worst. So we went to Seattle Children's hospital and they all thought it was MRSA. They had to put him under and make a little cut inside his leg to get all the infection out. It was scary to see him all drugged up, but he was a trooper. He did not cry once. He never cried when they put the IV or took blood. All the nurses loved him. The whole thing took about 5 hours. Once the medicine started wearing off we were able to go home. Max couldn't walk straight, so I had to hold his hand or either carry him the rest of the day. I did find out later that it was not MRSA which the doctors were very surprised, but it was a very bad staff infection. Anyways, he is doing great and his leg has healed very well.

5 years and Counting

Five years ago on the 4th, was one of the happiest days of my life. It was the day that Paul and I were sealed together at the Oakland Temple for all time and eternity. I still can't believe we have been married for 5 years. It has gone by so fast. In these past 5 years we have done a lot together. We went on the best honeymoon, graduated college at the same time, moved to Arizona, had Max, traveled to California many times, had Chloe, moved to Washington, celebrated many holidays, made lots of memories, got in a couple of arguments and yes, I always win and most importantly we have loved and enjoyed each other. I have loved every minute of being married. I cannot image my life without Paul. He is such a great husband and father. I am so grateful for everything he does for our family. I love him with all my heart and I am so blessed that he is my husband and the father of my children.
