I participated in a designer contest and was so excited to find out today that I was selected to become one of the new Faith Sisters designers! I really loved how my mini-kit turned out for the designer contest and am so thrilled to be a part of this great site!

Through freecycle we received a fun mini-trampoline and the kids have really enjoyed it. Beth was so excited to be preparing for her big day tomorrow! We had a meeting with her soccer team today and she got her new uniform!

A big day for Bethie today. Her first day of school AND her first soccer game! Joey was able to come with us for her first day at school and it was fun to see her so excited! She got to ride home on the bus with her brother and of course later, we went to see her play soccer! She has a lot to learn, but it was fun to see her get in there and try!

After the kids got home from school today, we set off on our great vacation adventure. We rode the bus to the Trax Station, rode the Trax to the Frontrunner station, and took the Frontrunner all the way up to Ogden. The kids loved the adventure, especially JJ! They colored in their notebooks and played their Leapsters and just enjoyed the ride. Meanwhile, Joey took our van up to Eden and got our room keys and unpacked and then he picked us up in Ogden and we headed through the canyon to our Worldmark Condo. We picked up some Alpine Pizza and spent the evening settling into our “vacation home.” The kids love our little place – it has a loft and a room for the kids, but their favorite part is the little room under the stairs. The kids are switching off with one of them sleeping in the room under the stairs and the other one sleeping in the bedroom and then they will switch the next night.

After having a wonderful lunch at The Eats of Eden, we headed into Ogden to go to the Treehouse Museum. It was so much fun! There was crafts, playtime, computers, books, puzzles, dress-ups, and all kinds of adventure. We ended our visit by attending the little theatre, where the kids got to act out the story! Beth was being a little scared about that so she just watched, but JJ jumped in and was a bear! It was such a fun place! We traveled back to Eden and went swimming in the fun pool before making dinner and hanging out in our room!

Our adventure for the day was visiting the George S. Eccles Dinosaur Park. We saw lots of bones and dinosaur statues and the kids even got to choose a geode, which they cut open right there at the museum. We spent the rest of day hanging out in our little place – watching a little tv, playing the wii, reading, and working on the computer!

We spent a relaxing Sunday inside. I made a breakfast casserole last night and we stuck it in the oven for a wonderful brunch. We just played and hung out in our room and Joey made us a wonderful dinner of pork chops and potatoes.
