Old Tucson

We had planned a trip to Utah for Spring Break  to go visit my slightly hormonal and pyschotic sister (love you Crystal) but as usual our plans changed last minute and we stayed home.  We decided to go to Old Tucson Studios to have a little fun.

The girls in front of an old stage coach.  Tessa being a nice big sister and giving Macie and Brylee bunny ears.

 Randy has always said to just put him in a pine box when he dies so here you go babe!  He was apparently shot for being a horse thief.
 Panning for "gold" was very fun.
 Someone was crazy enough to let Tessa behind the wheel of an old car to go for a spin.  Scary I know!  Don't worry it was on a track so she couldn't go too far off course. She kinda thought she was big stuff.
 Brielle on her first merry go round.  She looks thrilled doesn't she.  She is sooo big.  Makes me sad!
I finally found somewhere I could lock the girls up!  I think Tessa thought we were going to leave them there. 
 This picture was not at Old Tucson but was on the camera with the pics from there and I just had to post it because my dad is totally awesome and I love him! (Please excuse me feeding my face in the background)
Another panning for "gold" pic.  I'm pretty sure Brylee just liked playing in the mud.

We had a great time in between all the fighting and whining that occurs on all family trips (at least ours anyway).

I'm a total slacker . . .

It has been just a few months since I have updated anything and man have we been busy!  Not really we do the same thing every week pretty much.  Live life and try to have fun amongst all the craziness like everyone else.

I have just thrown in a few random pics just to make things intersting.  Here's to all 2 of you who read my blog . . .enjoy!

 This was one of the ftamily pics Tiff did for us after Brielle was born.  I am horribly fat in them so I havn't put them up but I might as well just let the world know. . .I am overweight.  I guess I can say I have an excuse becuase I had recently had a baby but then there are those people who come out of the hospital after having a baby and look like a model.  Well I am not one of those people but I am happy to say that I have lost 20 lbs since this picture so I guess that is good.  Still plenty more to go though!
 I have several pictures of Brylee and Brielle sleeping together because Brylee is so in love with her and she loves to be a big helper.  Brielle sadly is getting so big and has turned into a baby that does not like to cuddle.  I am very sad about it because all my other kids have been big cuddlers.
 This was a crazy becuase you would think it was winter but alas this was taken during our spring break in March.  Crazy, crazy winter.  It actually snowed off and on for a whole day which is amazing for us desert rats.
 Random picture of the girls in their Christmas jammies.  Like I said, all of them are getting way to big!  Of course they were spoiled like crazy for Christmas, mostly by their dad who makes last minute purchases.
This was my car after the accident I got in last October.  I know that was a long time ago but I just found some pics so I guess you get to look at it.  I was sitting on the highway coming home and I stopped behind a bus letting a kid off.  Well long story short a kid driving a truck looked down momentarily and didn't realize we were stopped.  He looked up at the last minute and tried to swerve but caught the back drivers side, his tire flew off as he spun around missing the truck in front of me and slammed into the back of the school bus.  Everyone thankfully was ok, whick is good because I had the 2 littlest with me.  My car is all fixed now but still waiting on insurance to get money for medical bills which could take forever!  So I guess that was a very short story after all.
