I’m Gonna be a Bear

In this life I’m a woman. In my next life, I’d like to come back as a bear.

When you’re a bear, you get to hibernate. You do nothing but sleep for Six months….. I could deal with that.

Before you hibernate, you’re supposed to eat yourself stupid…… I could deal with that too.

When you’re a girl bear, you birth your children (who are the size of walnuts) while you’re sleeping and wake to partially grown, cute cuddly cubs……I could definitely deal with that.

If you’re a mama bear, everyone knows you mean business. You swat anyone who bothers your cubs. If your cubs get out of line, you swat them too. I could deal with that.

If your a bear, your mate EXPECTS you to wake up growling. He EXPECTS that you will have hairy legs and excess body fat.

Yup i’m gonna be a bear.

I need to update my blog more... Hmm where to begin. The last weekend in June we went to Telluride, CO with Sam's parents. It is SO beautiful there! We stayed in this Cabinish-Condo, that had 5 flights of stairs, seriously! {I am trying to act like Amy Poehler here} I wish we would have taken more photos of it, BUT I sorta lost the camera on the way down.

We had stopped in Moab for dinner, and as we were heading out, realized I had forgotten to return our Redbox movies! We stopped at the Maverick to return them {thank heavens they are all over!!} Well, my lovely, adorable daughter, decided to spill her chocolate milk all over her, the floor, her bag full of toys and our camera bag. I rushed over and just started dabbing things up with wipes, while Sam went into Maverick to get paper towels. I picked up the Camera bag, it was sopping wet. So I threw it up on top of the Saturn, thinking I would get back to it soon. Well, after using almost all the wipes, and still hadn't got all the milk out of the carpet, we decided to just trudge on. Didn't realize the camera was still on the roof and we drove off! Seriously!
So later Friday night, well hot-tub'n-it-up, I wanted to take some pictures.. only to leave myself in a panic thinking where is it! It isn't anywhere, tore the car apart, our bags, and Maddy's toy bag, with no luck. That is when I realized.. it was still on the roof of the Saturn as we drove off..... I won't put the words that came flowing to my head here.. because we would have to bleep them out. I will tell you, Sam did not let me down on that one the whole weekend.. and still even to today... seriously.

Anyway, I thought I had been getting into better shape, until I met those 5 flights of stairs, and the 11,000 ft elevation we were at. {Mind you Salt Lake is about 4300 ft asl} I think I may have burned all the calories I ate just walking up those stairs.. sad huh? They had a Gondola from the top of the Mountain Village {Where the Condo was} down to Telluride. Madilyn LOVED it! She called it the "Gongo" I thought for sure she would be scared, but she wasn't. It made me a little uneasy at times.. but she just held my hand, and said "It's okay, Momma, don't be scared!" It really was quite a beautiful place, and I would go back again in a heartbeat!

Thanks to my Sam's Dad, he took some amazing photo's you are about to see:

Then it was off to this the day after we got back:

Let me just tell you.. my favorite one of all! Yes, I must be crazy for going to the midnight showing.. but it was oh SO fun! My dear friend Candis has thrown a Twilight, New Moon, and now an Eclipse party-all of which have been a blast! It is a bunch of us crazy early to mid-twenty ladies gooogling over These two men. Wishing we were Bella... am I right Ladies? Nah, it is just fun! haha Candis, thank you for an amazing party as always! :}

{Of course, no camera = no pictures... seriously.}

Then the 4th of July!! Has to be one of my FAVORITE Hoildays!
I love the BBQ's, fireworks, you name it! It was honestly the best weekend for it too! It wasn't too hot, a nice cold front came in just in time. Started out with a Breakfast at my parents ward, which was YUMMY. It has been a fun tradition for as long as I can remember! Maddy played with her friend Savannah {Who was my YW's leader, Kristi's daughter} They are only about 4 months apart, but are such good friends

Then it was off to a BBQ with my parents & Fireworks! We started a little early doing fireworks, so my dad could get off to bed. However, it worked out perfect. We decided to take Maddy to Costco to see the Murray Park Fireworks... she loved them! She kept saying "Whoa! That was so big! Did you see that Mommy!?" It was so fun to see her eyes light up with excitement. It brought back a lot of memories of when we used to watch the fireworks on our roof growing up. It was honestly the best part of my summers!
Sunday we went to Sam Parent's house for another BBQ. It was quite delightful and again a beautiful day :)

And that my friends is what we have been up to!... SERIOUSLY! :)
