Happy 6 months old baby girl!

Wow today my little baby is 6 months! What!? Where did the time go? I can't believe that only a little while ago I had this baby that didn't do anything but sleep, eat, cry, and poop. Now I have this little baby that does so much, so many new things and I just get to sit back and watch it all happen. Okay well I am not just sitting back and watching, but you know what I mean. Being a mom is an amazing thing it is awesome to watch this lttle person grow and learn more and more each day.

She babbles, rolls, smiles, laughs, plays, eats almost real food and so much more. By almost real food I mean she eats rice cereal and I tried it and it is not good! She went for her 6 month check-up today and he said I could go ahead and let her try some veggies, so we are trying it tonight! I excited! She now weighs a whopping 18 lbs. She has 4 teeth. I could just go on and on about how amazing she is but I won't. I will just leave you with a few pictures of her cuteness.

I just need to vent for a minute. My neighbors are having a new garage built which is great, good for them. I really am a pretty tolerent person I promise, but I can only take so much. The construction workers doing the work are stupid! I know that is rude and immature to call someone stupid but I just did so deal with it. This morning at 6:00 I could hear pounding outside my window, I look out and there they are working. 6:00AM REALLY! I have a sleeping baby and I didn't go to bed 'til 12:00. AHH! The other day they were putting some gravel down before they laid the concrete and there was a huge pile of gravel in front of my house. Fine I can deal with that, whatever. But then at the end of the day they left a bunch of it in the grass of my parking strip and a bunch in the road in front of my house. Now that is just rude! Have some common courtesy this is a residential neighborhood! Whatever it will all be over soon, it is just annoying for now.

New stuff

I finally got to post on our blog. I have been meaning to for a couple of weeks but since I never have time it never has happened. Thank the lord that babies take naps! Please do read and enjoy. Oh and here is a cute picture of Addy I took today.

Mini road trip

Yesterday....July 11th.....Shane, Addy, and I took a mini roadtrip to Sunnyside, UT. Where is Sunnyside, UT you ask? Well it is Southeast of Salt Lake. It is about 20 miles past Price. And why did we go to Sunnyside? which is a very small and run down town by the way. Well we went there to see a car show. And I will tell you it was worth the drive. Shane and I both love hot and rat rods and that is all that was there. It was killer!

Here is my list of requirments to have an excellent roadtrip.

-You must eat so much junk food you want to puke when you finally make it to your destination. On my mini trip yesterday I ate peanuts, lemonheads, fruitcrisp bar, banana, and a wendys cheeseburger and fries. On the way back home I ate more lemonheads, gradettos, m&m's, beef jerky (I only allow myself beef jerky on roadtrips so had to have it) and so much ice tea it is ridiculous. I swear I did not want anymore food the rest of the day. Blah!

-You must have fun! No whining about how long it is taking to get there.

-You must enjoy the weird people that live in the smalls towns you stop in. Shane and I get all sorts of weird looks when we go into these small towns. We both have tattoos so they automatically think we are bad news. It is fun!

Since this is about as close as I am getting to a vacation you get a long post. Sorry.

Couple of pictures of the trip......

The 4th!

On the 3rd of July we went and saw fireworks at Granite. It was a lot of fun and Addy did really well. I thought she would be scared but she wasn't at all just amazed by the giant light flashing above her. On the actual 4th we really didn't do anything, we just hung out an BBQed.

A couple of pictures of the kids watching the fireworks!
