4th of July

Our 4th of July weekend was pretty quiet and relaxing. On Saturday, July 3rd, our ward had a breakfast followed by a primary bike parade. Actually I don't know if parade is the right word it was more like attending a PIR race with bikes zooming every which way avoiding the "slower drivers". Nathan came up with this idea for Shyanne's bike since the kids were asked to decorate them. I think it turned out pretty cute! Sunday we went to church and I loved singing the patriotic hymns (too bad we only sing them once a year). Shyanne also learned a new song called My Flag. Sometimes when she sees the flag now she'll call it the flag of liberty :)

Finally an update

I know it's been awhile since I've posted anything, but I haven't really been in a blogging mood. So I'll jump right in and let everyone know what's been going on. For starters I was laid off from my job almost 2 weeks ago HALLELUJAH! Normally this would be a bad thing, but I've only been getting about 2 hrs. a night for the last couple of months and they're closing in a couple of weeks anyway. I'm also in the middle of taking an x-ray certification class at Phoenix College so I can be more marketable in the dental field. The next big thing is that Shyanne turned 5 on April 21st! We celebrated that day and then had her party on Saturday, the 24th, complete with a Strawberry Shortcake bounce house and snow cone machine FUN! She loved all of her presents and is excited for next year's party already. She will be starting Kindergarten this coming school year and is on a couple of waiting lists so we'll see which school she goes to. Finally our last big thing is that we are going to be featured in the June edition of B magazine (for Buick owners). There was a question on Facebook about younger people buying a Buick and Nathan answered it then a couple of days later he got a call from their marketing dept. asking if they could feature us and our story in their magazine! Yesterday we went out and did the photo shoot and I'm so excited to see what the finished product will look like. Other than that things are pretty normal around here.

New Name

Shyanne and I were looking at something on the computer today and she saw a picture of Buzz Lightyear and said "that's Buzz off light beard". Ha ha I love the things that kids say.

A Phoenix Snow Day

Sunday afternoon I layed down to take a nap when Shyanne bursts into the room and tells me that it's "snowing" outside. So we got our shoes on and went outside and found that it was hailing! I explained to Shyanne that it wasn't snow it was hail and that hail was ice. She said oh well can we just call it snow for today. So here's a picture taken by Nathan of our snow day in Phoenix.
