yes we still exist

i have taken an unintentional vacation from blogging. there is just so much that went on!
first off. check out www.awkwardfamilyphotos.com courtesy of my bff Bev. HILARIOUS!
ok this is what happened in June:
ashton took his first steps
we went to disney world
ashton loved the princesses
we loved the rides
i conquered my fear of rollercoasters...
had an awesome time with my fam
missed ricky
did not miss the humidity in FL yuck
loved meeting the characters
July:
went to NJ
dallin and shannon got engaged!
ashton started dominating the walking thing
had a wonderful time with all the inlaws
chopped off my hair (thanks mike, i love it)
met beautiful ava for the first time
tanned and tanned some more
swam in the pool and chillaxed
ate junk at the boardwalk and loooveed it
went to CT
celebrated LG's 6th birthday with farm animals, blow up houses, kayaking, glorious food, etc.
ashton got his first ear infection (he was so clingy that i knew something was wrong- he rarely lets me hold him)
i had a sinus infection and bladder infection from my surgery- yuck
had ashton's unbirthday 2 months early courtesy of the grandparents who spoil him rotten
had a great time with the fam
bought an insane amount of shoes
delayed on the plane
finally made it to UT to see my hubby who I hadn't seen in 2 weeks (i missed him so much i cried at hallmark looking at the stupid couple statues)
got to ut and bought an insane amount of groceries....i've never seen my pantry so bare
got back to my schedule with a pleasant surprise (ashton sleeps from 8:30-10ish) while in CT he slept 8:30ish to 7am. sometimes he'd wake up earlier and cry because he could see me in the bed.....i would hide behind the pillows until my mom (wuss) came in and got him

August:
planning the bub's 1st birthday bash
planning the bub's birthday bash

you've been busy! I've been busy trying to plan a big birthday bash for Hannah too, but then I realized she could probably really care less, so I just planned the cake and made a movie of her first year. LOL. Glad you had fun out east, but I'd be happy to get home to my hubby, too! I wish Hannah would sleep later like Ashton! Holy cow! Right now she's in bed at 5pm and up around 6am... which is a great 13 hours, just not at the ideal times! :)

I'm glad to know you're alive - I was worried for a while there. We do need to see you soon, sorry bout the zoo, guess the ball's in our court now so we'll think of something ;)
