ripple crazy

another amazing weekend spent.
and an amazing relaxing sunday.
my favorite part of today was driving up provo canyon
with the kids and my bestie anna.
so that we could drive under the tunnel
and make a wish.
i REALLY hope mine comes true.
my sister showed me
this easy crotchet pattern
i have one started for darbys room
and then ive started some baby blankets.
the blanket im working on in the pictures
is for a boy.
i love it.
so if you know how to do a double crotchet your all set!

while working on that blanket
i watched christian sell some
painted rocks.
he loves selling painted rocks.
business was a little bit slow today
being sunday and all.
but he still made 4 quarters.

this little piggy went weeeeeeeeeeee!

running the 10k Dirty Dash
may have been one of the funnest
things ive ever done.
for reals!
it was so fun having bryton and christian there
watching and taking pictures.
and the race was totally worth my
black and blue 5 inch bruise on my shin.
and losing a contact when em hit me in the face with mud.

here we are all squeaky clean...

and we are all muddy...

this was just crossing the finish line.

we were laughing how we were kinda like
shrek, fiona and donkey
{i was donkey}

rob and anna banana

eating muddy grapes...
super yummy.

kevin and emily

me and the boys


darby can jump with the big boys.
take christian out.
loves motocycle rides.
wearing christians big boy undies.
playing with dirt and rocks.
and yet she also loves
the color pink.
and jessie {thats what she wants to be for halloween}
her princess big girl panties.
and getting her hair and nails done by kylie.
she is a perfect mix to me :)

i love getting pictures from my babysitter
on my phone.
it makes me miss the crap out of darby.
but it also makes me super happy
that she is with an awesome family during the day.

B is here!
christian and darby have been so excited
to have their big brother here.
B reminded me that im still his stepmom
even though im not married to his father anymore.
anywho. we have lots of fun things planned this weekend.

and yes darby is barefooted.
didnt realize that she didnt have her flip flops on
until we were half way to the parking lot.
and i forgot and he had baggage to pick up
on the way back from getting flip flops
and half way to the parking lot.
its been a long day...

i miss...

today i miss being a stay at home mom.
i miss everything about it
the good AND the bad.
dont get me wrong im grateful
that i have a job and the ability to provide
for my 2 kiddos.
today i want to clean my home,
take darby out and play
and have cookies waiting for christian when
he gets home from school
and do homework together.
i know thats not the reality of a stay at home mom
but thats what i want today...

{i can never blog without pictures}
