We are Alive just took an extended break

I can't find my camera cable to download pictures so sorry no updated pics at this present time.
We are alive. We moved in October just down the street so not that far. We love where we are as of now.
Exciting news for us. Mike starts class on April 4th for a Captain position out of LaGuardia, NY. His class should be about 6-8 weeks and then he will be captain on reserve out of NY. (that will suck) but it is a step in the right direction. We are very excited.

The girls are growing like crazy and are keeping me busy.
Life is good. Hope everyone else is doing well also.

Summer 2010

I am pretty behind on posting so I will just combine a few posts together. In July we had Sydney's bday( I can't believe she is 4 already), a few day trips for our vacation, camping, Bryce Canyon, Friends visits ( Tanya and Valerie) and so far in August we have been getting ready for Kindergarden and Preschool and Soccer.And Mike and I celebrated our 9th Anniversary. We have had a good summer and are excited for Brooke to start kindergarden and Sydney will be in Preschool twice a week so it will just be me and Kira for a couple of hours a week. I got to see Valerie Wood on her way to Seattle and it was so good to visit with her and the family. Thanks for making time for me and about a week later got to see Tanya Staples while she was in Salt Lake visiting family. She took me out for my bday and we ate and got pedicures. Thanks T !!! Mike actually had about 10 days off in July so we took the girls camping for the first time, went to Bryce Canyon , Jump on It, Toy Story 3, *the girls first movie* and lots of little things. It was nice and relaxing.

Bryce Canyon

We went last week to Bryce Canyon. It is so beautiful. We camped and hiked and loved the scenery. Camping wasn't as fun with Kira, I think next year will be better when she is just a bit older but the other two girls had a blast. This was their first time camping and all. We enjoyed ourselves and it was nice and cool there so it was nice to get away from the heat.

kira 10 months

I can hardly believe my little baby is already 10 months and into everything
Here are a few of the things she is doing now
-Walking since 8months 19days
-climbing stairs
-eating table food (she won't eat baby food anymore at all)
-still not a good sleeper (still up twice a night)
-she is still in the 5-10 % of weight and height
-totally a mommy's girl all the way. I am the only one she wants some days which makes getting things done sometimes hard.
We love our little Kira she brings so much into our family.

No Lions, One Tiger and No bears

Last Saturday we took the girls to the zoo as we do every year. And every year Mike says next year we really need to go to San Diego Zoo. The girls don't know any different so they have a blast except that their Polar Bears and Black Bears aren't there this year and that was the girls favorites but oh well we still had fun. We took a train ride, had dippin dots, and had a carnival ride. All in all a good day.

My first 5k

well I did it. It may have been slow and up hill the first mile but I ran my first 5k in May. I know most people have been there done that, it's only 3.2 miles but I hadn't and so I was happy with myself. I have never ran in my life until I lived in North Dakota right before I got pregnant with Brooke then started having kids and after Sydney was born started again and was doing good averaging 4.5 a day 3 times a week and then got pregnant with kira and so lost all that so about 3 months ago really started to try again and it was hard this time getting back into running one because I can really only exercise when Mike is home and he is never home (ok he is home on the weekends) and I gained way more weight with Kira than expected so my big butt just didn't want to run but in May I signed up for a mini boot camp which was twice a week lost 10 inches in my body(way more to go so don't clap too hard) that month and was driven to do my first 5k. Now i am going to train for a 10 k at the end of summer. If I can do it anyone can. btw- the picture was taken at 6:50 in the morning so don't judge :)
