** Kids **

I really wanted a new post, but we haven't really done anything exciting to post about, so... I decided to put on some pictures of the kids. A few weekends ago, while we were in Utah, my mom and I decided, last minute, to go and try to get some pictures taken of the kids. They turned out pretty cute, considering how rushed we were, and how excited the kids were to take pictures! I just love these 2 kids. They are so much fun to be with, and always make life interesting. It has finally cooled down here. We are so excited. We have actually been able to go to parks, ride bikes, and walk outside without sweating too death. We love it!

Happy Anniversary...6 Years



It’s hard to believe that it was 6 years ago today that we were married. We’ve lived in 4 different cities, had 2 wonderful children along the way (a boy and a girl - Perfect!), and Scott, my amazing husband, who could have chosen to play Pro Baseball, Tennis, or be an NFL Quarterback,(HA! HA!HA! I am totally joking by the way. Would I seriously write something like this, and be serious? I just said it because it would be his dream. Like every guy, of course.) opted to support our family and be a Lawyer/yogurt salesman!!! I couldn't be more grateful or love you more! It’s been an amazing 6 years and I know it will just keep getting better and better. I love you! Happy Anniversary!

My First Day of Preschool, Disneyland, Happy Birthday Dad, BYU vs. UCLA

These past few weeks have been busy, but so much fun for our family. It will be weird not to have any trips for the next little while. To start off, last Thursday was Tyler's first day of preschool. YEY! He was so excited. But, there was a problem. We were supposed to leave for S. California on Wednesday to meet up with some friends. Scott still thinks I am crazy, but I was determined to have my little guy go to his first day of pre-school. I mean, with 6 kids (4 girls and 2 boys) I wouldn't want him to feel left out for any reason!! So, he went and loved it, and we ended up leaving on Thursday after preschool. (It was worth it to me!) On Friday, we met up at Disneyland with some of our good friends from Northern California, the Vincents and the Warrens. Too much fun! There were BYU fans EVERYWHERE. Saturday was, of course, GOLF Morning for the guys. Then we left for the BYU game at 12:45p.m. And yes, the game didn't start until 3:30. I continued asking why we needed this 3 hour buffer, explaining that as long as I am there before kick-off I am happy. Once we hit the traffic, thanks to a massive wreck, I had to apologize for complaining to the men. It took us over 2 1/2 hours to get to the game. Tobi and Scott ended up jumping out of the cars to run to make it before kick-off, while we wives parked the cars. CRAZY! It was pretty funny, because they jumped out of the cars pretty far from the Stadium. I am sure glad these 2 guys are in such great shape!! It ended up being a really fun time, even with the loss. And then, finally, Sunday was Daddy's Birthday. The Big 29! It was a very relaxing day. So, now we are back in Las Vegas getting life going again. Here are a few pictures of the events. I didn't take any pictures of the game though, which I was sad about.

Who got the teapot duty with the kids? Sorry Scott! I am sure it was enjoyable!

Happy Birthday Dad! (With Tyler and Scott's Favorite homemade German Chocolate cake. Yes a 4 yr. old LOVES that cake. Funny!)
I think Haley started blowing first she was so excited!

This post is for my little brother Steve. He wanted a dog so bad, and finally got one. He named him "Tag". He is one of those dogs that you stay away from, not because he bites (because he doesn't)! He is hyper, he jumps, and he is just plain crazy. He is one of the reason's why my poor children will never get a dog. So sad, I know. Anyway, whenever we go up there, we stay away from this poor dog and make my Dad chain him up for us. This last time, however, my kids LOVED him. They were petting him and playing with him the whole time. I know Steve would be happy to hear that. He returns home from his Mission in Warsaw, Poland in a few weeks. We are so excited we can't wait. We love you Steve!


Those of you who know Scott, understand his complete loyalty to BYU Football. He has to be one of the biggest fans. So, we made our way up to Utah for the first Kick-Off of the season. It turned out great, because they won! Yeah! It was extremely hot the first half, so thank goodness for Grandma Nash who kept Haley and Jake (Brandon and Brittany's little guy) home. She is wonderful! We are now heading down to watch the UCLA vs. BYU game this Saturday. It should be a lot of fun. I have to add, that I let Scott create the playlist for the blog. I did do a little editing, but I had to leave the ACDC song on for his football season!

Grandpa's Birthday

While we were in Utah, we were able to celebrate my Dad's Birthday with him. Tyler went down to his work for lunch and they fed ducks, then for dinner we had a Bar-B-Que. Grandpa always takes Tyler on a scooter ride whenever we go to visit. He is such an amazing guy, and as Tyler puts it, "Can fix anything!" He really can, it is great.

Fun Times

I know I have been terrible at posting lately. First, I started reading the “Twilight’ series, which everyone else has highly recommended. That took up a few straight days of doing nothing else but reading. Can I just say I loved those books. I really wish that I didn’t have to wait until next fall to finish them. Oh well, if anyone has any new book selections please let me know. I need some new books to start on.

Then, we went up to Utah all last week. It was beautiful up there. I absolutely love the fall time in Utah. We were able to, celebrate my Dad’s birthday, play tennis, go to a family reunion, BAR- B-QUE, see old friends, and of course, the BYU GAME! Which, turned out to be a success, with the win. It was so much fun. And my amazing Mom gives me such a break with the kids. They absolutely adore her, We just got home late last night, and so pictures will come soon.
