Part of the Van Clan

We finally bought a bigger car. We've been looking around for quite a while to find a car we both liked and could afford. And this is what we ended up with a 2008 Chevy Uplander. Thanks to our fellow Uplander friends we started looking at these cars. It wasn't exactly what we were hoping for but I think we will enjoy the car. Tanner wanted to get this car just because of the automatic doors. I just hope he doesn't break them. Mo has informed me that we don't call it a van we call it a "Hot Rod." (I had a hard time getting the whole car with the angle I was at so just imagine the rest you can't see!)

Ross Park

This last Saturday we headed to Pocatello to go to Ross Park. It's a little water park with a lazy river, water slide and stuff. Mo's mom has been in town visiting and so we were able to enjoy a day in the sun with her. Tanner really liked going in the lazy river and Brayden well he had fun but was a little tired. He actually fell asleep leaning against my big belly!

Happy Birthday Brayden

Brayden turned 2 today! We've been practicing how to hold up 2 fingers but he still has a little trouble and if you ask how old he is he'll say "3!" He got some fun things but I think his favorite gift were the balls that we already had that I wrapped up. He also got a little tricycle. He saw the bike coming before I was able to get the video ready to tape it. He went nuts. He yelled out the whole time he opened presents "Balls" or "Bike" I'm so glad he was easy to please. Since he is so into balls I made a baseball cake. It was pretty fun and not to hard to make.

Cantaloupe and Blueberry Smoothie

I was skeptical of this smoothie but I tried it and actually really liked it. We were able to pick blueberries while in houston so I was able to use those! I didn't use the correct amounts I just kind of dumped stuff in and it was still good. Try this you'll like it!
1 cup Dannon® All Natural Plain Yogurt
1 cup Del Monte® Fresh cantaloupe chunks
½ cup Del Monte® Fresh blueberries
1 small Del Monte® Fresh banana, peeled
1/8 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. lemon juice
4-6 ice cubes
Blend all together and enjoy

Our Garden!

Well we really don't have a spot for a garden but we did have enough dirt to plant a few things. We have flowers, cucumbers and tomatoes. We don't have and cucumbers yet but I'm proud to say we have like 15 tomatoes on one plant! Hopefully they'll taste good!

Latest Happenings

Well we have been up to quite a few things lately. We went down to Soda Springs Idaho for a birthday party, then headed to Utah for a Bushman Family reunion, then we enjoyed a visit from my parents. While they were visiting we went to Mesa Falls (One of the prettiest places ever) and went on a LITTLE hike and enjoyed lunch. Later that same week we went camping at Rigby Lake. (Yes I went and yes I slept on the ground) Mo was so proud that he got a fire started with one match! It was a little smoky at first but was a perfect fire for hot dogs and mallows. We let Tanner try his hand at fishing and he did pretty well. We didn't catch anything but I think that was because Brayden was having to much fun throwing rocks or splashing his feet in the water. I didn't get a whole lot of pictures of everything mostly because I forgot the camera in the car or I just forgot to take pictures. Sorry!
