Major Update!!

First, for Labor Day weekend we went up to Cedar Mountain to camp and hunt again....of course!! It was a lot of fun to be with the family!Then Lindsay was in town with her 3 kids....Mae, Ian and Noah......All of us girls got together and had a girls night out. We went to dinner and then to Lindsay's parents house to swim and talk until 2 in the A.M. (poor Carly had to be to work at 6) Then on Friday we got together again and took all the kids to the park, and then back to Lindsay's for more swimming......They have the prettiest backyard ever!!! A HUGE pool , a zip line into the pool, a high dive, a pond, tons of grass and pretty flowers everywhere!! The kids loved it!!!

I can't believe my baby is already 3 months old!!!

and Amy and Brandon are having their baby girl tomorrow.......I am so excited for them!!! I wish I could be with her!!!!

.......My yittle brover is all growed up!!!!!
I seriously can't believe that Bryce will be 19 in two months.....It feels like yesterday I was changing his diapers, or picking up his toys in our room that we shared! Or hearing him call me "my Cari" whenever someone would tease him!! He is such a cute, nice, caring, sensitive young "man" who is all grown up now and living his dreams!!! He just left today, for 3 months, to Marine Boot Camp..........and I wish him the best of luck. I know he will do great, but I just want him to know I love him and will miss him!!!!* * * His senior pics * * *

No more diapers.......

I think I can officialy say Tryston will Never Again Wear Diapers!!! I have been dreading potty training for almost a year, and it was so much easier than I thought!! I think the key is that he was old enough to know the urge! The first day I set an alarm to go off every 20 min. The second day I spaced it out a little longer, then on the third day I asked him if he needed to go through out the day. There were a couple of accidents but nothing major, and thankfully no poopie accidents! He is wearing pull-ups to bed, but I have noticed a couple of nights he woke up dry. He has done soooooo Good!!!!

Fun Weekend....

......It started off on Friday with our
5 Year Anniversary!!!
Dusty's cousin Kason and his fiance Wendy were sealed that morning in the St. George Temple. It was nice to be able to be there and listen to the promises and covenants that we made to each other only 5 years ago on the same day! Dusty has been the best husband and father that I could have ever asked for, and I love him more and more everyday!!
Then on Sunday Trey was blessed, and Dusty gave him the sweetest blessing ever!! Thanks again for your support, we love you all so much!!

Date Night......

......with my BoYz!!!
Dusty is out of town for the weekend so Tryston, Trey and I went to McDonald's for dinner. That place totally grosses me out, but Tryston loves it, so I make the sacrifice for him! (I am paranoid about touching things.......dirty hands ewww!!!!!) We have to sit by the bathrooms to eat, that way he doesn't see the slide, and he actually eats his food. He had so much fun, and Trey slept almost the whole time. When we left we got an ice cream cone, and by the time we got home it was ALL OVER Tryston! He took a shower, got his jammies on, and now they are both asleep and I am going to paint my toes and watch a movie! Funny Picture!
Tryston is always asking if he can hold Trey, and then once he's in his arms he says "take a picture mom"..........this was taken this morning, and I think it is so funny, it makes me laugh!

Our Music
As I was sitting here reading my last post Trey started getting fussy so I started to sing the song that was playing...........so I thought I would explain! Our music is a combination of my fave songs at the moment and Trystons. Because he is my little shadow, and whenever I am on the computer he wants to listen to his songs. So I added his to the list to make life easier!!!
Upside Down - Jack Johnson.....He loves Curious George!
Life is a Highway - Rascal Flatts.....Cars of course!
Watching You - Rodney Atkins.....He listens to it whenever he's in daddy's truck, it's their song!!!
and whenever we listen to them they have to be loud too :)
We spent our 4th of July weekend camping on Cedar Mountain. It was so nice to get out of the St. George heat, and into 70 degree weather!!! Dusty and Tryston absolutely love being on the mountain hunting, riding 4-wheelers and dirt bikes, shooting bows and guns, playing in the dirt and with cousins, cooking with the dutch oven, playing cards,etc............I like being up there doing that stuff too, but I think it's the part where I know I don't have to do anything except maybe cook a little that I like the best!!! Trey did really good, except the 5-7 hr. sleeping at night came to a screeching halt! The first night he woke up I think like almost every 2-3 hrs.(I get so delirious that I can't remember) But by Saturday night he was back to his routine and we had a good night last night too! So I'm going to keep my fingers crossed that it continues!!! On Friday we drove down to Cedar to go to dinner and watch the fireworks. Tryston was excited to see them, but they didn't start until 10:00 so he was pretty tired by the time they started. It was a fun long weekend with our family and friends!!!

Trey slept for 6 1/2 hours straight last night!!! I actually woke up at 4:30 to see if he was still breathing, and he was snug as a bug, and then he woke up a half hour later. It was so nice to sleep, but then when I woke up I thought I was going to explode!!!! (hopefully it's not just a one time thing!! :)

Escaping the summer HEAT!!!

A couple days ago Dusty came home from work and wanted to get out of the heat...............so we went up to Pine Valley with the Stucki family to eat yummy dutch oven chicken and potatoes, and let the kids play! I didn't want to go at first because it sounded like to much work for only a few hours, but it ended up being really fun and I think we will definitely be doing it more! (The kids are showing their muscles in the one picture :)

I Love You!!

More pics......He kinda has a funny hairdo because I washed it today (he slept right through it too) and it was totally sticking straight up in the back. He has been such a good baby, I can't believe he has already been here for almost 2 weeks, time flies!!
Tryston absolutely loves him!!! If Trey cries or starts to fuss he says "it's okay Trey I'm right here" in a soft nice voice as he touches his face. Tryston loves to kiss, hug and hold him too! It's fun to see them together and I love being their mom!!!

There was so much to do and see I really don't know what my favorite thing was!?? I would post some pictures but I lost my camera.....so you will have to check out Beth, Malea, and Brandee's Blogs to see pictures. Thanks again Doug and Beth for everything, Love ya and Miss ya!!

Jumpin jack's

I have been telling Tryston all week that we were going to go to the kite festival and go on the big slide! But this afternoon when we were driving out there it was to windy and we could see a big dust storm, so we decided to try out "Jumpin Jacks" instead. And Dusty and Tryston LOVED it!!!

Last weekend we went up to Baker Reservoir to camp and fish! A couple weeks ago was the first time this year that Tryston went camping with his daddy (while I stayed at home and had "Girls Weekend"). He talked about camping and ridding 4-lerlers all week long! They love to camp!!! Me on the other had can only handle so much of it right now...........only 7 weeks left!! So anyways these are pics of the boys fishing!

Easter Weekend!
What a fun weekend! We went to Wal-Mart for their Easter egg hunt, they had some good prizes, but we didn't win anything. Then we went over to Brandee's for Breakfast and another egg hunt (from Pampa and Gramma) with the cousins!! The kids had so much fun playing outside in the warm weather, and the big boys had fun inside playing the Wii! Then Brax and Abbie came over that night to watch Tryston so Dusty and I could go on a date!!

Sunday morning Tryston woke up to presents from the Easter Bunny, and was sooo excited! We made a yummy breakfast, decorated eggs, played out back with his new bubble blower, and got ready for church! Tryston was his daddy's little shadow all day!!

When we got home from church we got ready and went to my dad's house for another yummy meal!! It was such a beautiful weekend and so fun to be with Family!! Love you guys!! My Handsome Boys!
