Children's Museum

Pat was gone for 8 days straight. He had work on each end of a special trip he took to California to be with my cousin Jaren as he went through the temple for his first time in preparation of him leaving on his mission. So in the midst of the insanity that is our life I decided it would be fun to take the kids for a special day at the Children's Museum! (Really it's a special day where mom doesn't have to do the entertaining for a few hours!) We had a blast! We were there for 41/2 hours and I had to finally drag Merik out because Karma was so tired she couldn't take it anymore! Here's a few pictures of the day!

Merik as a Veternarian! He was so serious about his job!

Merik has alot of career choices ahead of him!

They were so cute together in this boat! Karma is getting to the age that she adores Merik and everything he does and she was so interested in him catching the fish!
Merik was chasing Karma through the tunnel and they were both laughing so hard! It was adorable!
Fancy Socks!

Wedding Season!

Pat's sister Nichole got married this summer and it was a BLAST! We had a luau for the rehearsal dinner and had so much fun talking to family that had come in from out of town and hoola-hooping (which is a surprising work-out!)

The food was great!!!

Aunt Kathy and little Karma

The whole family and the beautiful bride!

We had so much fun at the reception!!!! I felt like I was in high school again dancing, except for the fact that my 2 1/2 year old was totally showing me up! He was the center of every circle he could find and was a way better dancer than most of us adults! He definitely likes attention! Nichole was gorgeous and the wedding was wonderful! Congratulations Curt and Nichole!

Back in touch with the world!

We’ve had a few crazy weeks, hence my absence from the online world. But don’t worry I’m hopefully getting my act together again and will post pictures of the exciting events that have kept me from blogging…I know I know you’ve heard that before! First new post…House! Finally I’ve gotten enough done to post some pictures, not that you necessarily care, but posting them gives me a sense of finality. I had a ton of fun and we are so blessed. We can’t wait for all of you to visit!

Our bedroom, and yes it's striped. Crazy...I know but my motto is: You can ALWAYS paint over it!

Little Karma's room! Pat says it's so girly she's bound to be a tom boy but I love it!

Mr. Merik's room!

Our family room. My beloved office!

Pat would be furious if I didn't include his santcuary...The GYM!
Our dinning room, with the lantern that everyone but me hates! It was Pat's grandma's and no one wanted it and I was so excited that I got it!
Our living room with the piano pat re-did for me a couple christmas' ago.
