The past 2 weeks have been interesting to say the least. Two weeks ago Brock and I went on a date, which ended in us deciding to move. WOW! Talk about spontaneous. I guess it was something that we had both thought about for a variety of reasons and after discussing it...what more can I say then we both felt like it was the right thing for our family at this time. With family in the real estate business, everything happened fast and smooth. Three days after we made the decision, we had a FOR SALE sign in our yard. As one can did not take long before the phone started ringing and the rumors started spearding. When something feels right, you have to have faith and go with it. I have experienced this many times in my life and have always been blessed. So with faith we take this journey...not knowing where it will lead us.
Brynn was jumping the the trampoline at Grandma and Grandpa Wilks' last Sunday night with her cousins. Isaac came is yelling that Brynn was hurt. Brock carried her in and she cried and cried, stating that her left leg hurt. I could move it and saw no obvious deformities...therefore, I encouraged her to stop crying, sat her down on the couch and put some ice on it. I went to work shortly after that. Brock text me stating that he thought we should bring her in for an x-ray. She had not settled down in 3 hours and still would not put weight on it. I was reluctant....I am a ER nurse what can I say. However if Brock felt like we should get her checked I was on board. We did a x-ray outpatient, I love having friends in the business, and sure enough it was BROKEN!! Boy did I ever feel silly. Here I was thinking she was just being dramatic because she had a sleep deprived weekend. I put her in a splint and the next day we took her to her pediatrician. The fracture is stable, however due to the location she can not bear weight on it for 3 weeks and will be in her cast for 6 weeks. She has been a trooper, never complaining and very content. Her cast is PINK and goes from her upper thigh to the bottom of her toes. We carry her around everywhere and even have to help her use the restroom. Being 29 weeks pregnant and having a 18 month old this has been very interesting. However we are adjusting, well I might add. It is time for this mommy to get creative...any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

House update...Our house has been shown a dozen times in the 2 weeks it has been on the market. NO offers yet....but we are trying to be patient. We found a house last week that we both fell in love with. Great location, beautiful yard and below budget. We made a full price offer the day it came on the market, contingent on the selling of our house. We hoped and stressed all weekend only to find out on Monday that someone had came after us and made a full price offer, with no contingencies. So to sum it up we did not get the house. Monday was a bad day. My daughter just broke her leg and would be totally dependent for 3 weeks and we lost this house we loved. Although I have shed many tears over the matter, I feel peace that we will be led to our new destination when the time is right. For now I continue to keep my house in tip top shape never knowing then a Realtor might call and want to show it.....just another stresser I need now! ha ha!!

Spring Break

Our family enjoyed a couple of days in Salt Lake City for Spring break this year. There are not many things at beat staying in a hotel when you are a kid. The kids enjoyed jumping on the beds and exploring the room. Dallin took the tissues out one by one and carefully placed them in the garbage can. Brynn loved playing on the phones, and Isaac liked his unlimited access to cartoons. We enjoyed swimming in the pool and dinner at none other than McDonald's. Yes, this was a trip for the kids for sure. The next day we headed to Thanksgiving point to visit the dinosaur museum. Isaac has really been into dinosaurs. Every library book he brings home is about dinosaurs. We watched a 3-D movie. Dallin kept his glasses on the entire time. They kids really enjoyed the movie. There were lots of interactive things for the kids to do and overall we had a great afternoon.

It's a Boy!!! It's a Boy!!! It's a Boy!!! It's a Boy!!! It's a Boy!!!

We couldn't be more excited about another boy. The ultrasound was amazing. The little man twisting and turning...moving legs and arms. The detail of each part of its little body. So little and yet so perfect. We are excited for July 1st...the expected time of arrival of our new little man.

Brock and I picked up some BLUE balloons to take home to the kids. They were overjoyed. It wasn't until Isaac started to tease Brynn that her prediction was wrong and that she was going to be the only girl that she started to pout. However it didn't last long. I just told Brynn that it only meant that her and I would have to do lots of fun girl things together.

It feels like only a short time ago that I was being sealed to Brock for time and all eternity...then Isaac came a few years later. Now look at us....4 kids. The thought is crazy! However I cannot think of anything else that I would rather do with my time, or anywhere else in life I would rather be then right here!
