"I Want to Ride My Bicycle, I Want to Ride My Bike"

The Girls are loving summer! They have lived on their bikes. They pretend they are cars, with ticking turn signals, road rules, and parking spaces. They seem to always make it to work on time, are always 'running to the store', and seem to have more doctor appointments than the average mom, but hey as long as they are entertained.. keep on scheduling! The funny thing is, is that they don't have the regular bike helmets, so they wear their motorcycling helmets, and when they come in for a quick drink, or a popsicle, they are dripping with sweat, but I have to say they sure look cute in them!

Truckin with the Tucker's

We went on a family trip to Zion's in June of this year. It was alot of fun. We first stayed at the Thunderbird hotel in Mount Carmel. We went golfing (I would like to contribute this trip to Scott's new obsession with golfing!), and then did some hiking in Zion's. We left Zion's and hit up St. George to get some much needed R&R and pool time. This was the last time Andy splish splashed in the water before he left for the mish. It was really good to have everyone together. We all had a great time!

Till & Plant, Water and sow.. Now Sit Back and Watch it Grow!!

We planted a garden this year. It has been alot of fun, and alot of work! We planted about 10 rows of corn, pumpkins, squash, zuchinni, peppers, tomatoes, lettuce, beets, peas, beans, melons, herbs, and more!! The girls have worked hard out there.. weeding, watering, and best of all picking! Britt ate the first ripe tomato, and we have enjoyed alot of other things that are ready. We hope to get a good harvest and get a freezer full of fresh goodness from it all!! What didn't work this year we'll do different next year, and before you know it, we might all be wearin overalls!!

They Say the Darndest Things!

7-13-08 We were sitting in church next to a family, when one of their twin little boys leaned over to me and whispered in my ear "look at my mom's chin, it has hair all over it!".. hilarious!

7-30-08 Shay was helping me get the laundry out of my bin into a laundry basket. After it was done, she said "man i am a strong woman!"

7-29-08 I put a hair band in my hair to hold my bangs back, and when Britt saw me she said "huh, so your doing your hair like that now?"
7-31-08 Shay and I were driving down the road and her favorite song came on. I started singing along and she looked over at me with this look and said "Mom, this is just terrible that your singing this song" I looked at her puzzled and asked why "because it is my favorite song, not yours!
7-30-08 We went to the pool for family night. I had a terrible headache, so I just layed down in the lounge chair and put a towel over my head. After awhile, I heard shay say "Mom" 'yeah', I said from under the towel "Can she sleep over?" She replied. Puzzled, I said 'who?' with the towel still over my face "her" she said like I was supposed to know who she was talking about. I slowly removed the towel from off my face and when I looked up I saw these two sopping wet girls standing in front of me, one of whom I had never seen in my life, just staring waiting for my answer. I said 'No, not tonight' trying my hardest to not burst out laughing! They both looked at me with dissapointed faces, and slowly turned around while saying simutaneously "OOOOHHHHH" and walked back toward the pool!
6-19-08 Shay and I went grocery shopping as we do every Tuesday. Because it takes most of the day to get it all done, I usually pack a lunch for her to take. As we were walking through the store, her in the seat of the shopping cart, she busted open her lunch. After awhile of munching on various things, she said "mom, this lunch is just amazing today!"

One Year Down, Another to Go!!

Today was the girls first day of school. Britt is going into 4th grade (I can't even believe it) and Kenz into 2nd ( she was just in pre-school!). They were so excited, they couldn't even sleep! I heard them in their beds until 10:30 just giggling and talking to themselves! Right before bed, I told them to go and pick out their outfits, and before I could even finish the sentence they both at the same time said "Did it!" so I told them to get their shoes ready, and again, "Did it!". They woke up the next morning and were dressed and ready to go in their new school clothes in less than 5 minutes! They both got good teachers and seem to be pretty excited about the new year. They came home with lots of homework already.. here goes another year!!

My Friends Tigger and Pooh

We took a trip to Disneyworld last February, it was a blast! It is so fun to see the kids faces when they see those characters, it really is like magic to them!

All I want for Christmas is my 2 front teeth!
