mini vacation/ more happenings

Here i am updating again i know i'm shocked myself. Hopefully this post isn't to confusing the pictures are kind of out of order but better than noting right? anyway these are some more of our recent happenings.

About a month ago our little family took a mini vacation down to chandler it was nice to get away and just be able to do a few fun things together. We went to Cabela's of coarse Chris and Paetyn both loved it and i didn't mind it to much either. Then later that day we went to the Bounce Jungle with Waylon and Whitley; that wore the kids out pretty good and us to i played just as hard as the kids. I had originally planned for us to go to the pet store then Chris found a place he thought would be fun so we went to the bird store instead. We had so much fun just being together as a family we will have to do it again sometime soon.

A couple weekends ago we decided to go up to the catwalk. Amy and Lexi came with us too. It was fun but we decide next time we need to go without the wasn't very stroller friendly.



This is what happens when a 2 yr old doesn't get her nap

Bird store; chris failed to tell me they weren't in cages so as we approach the door and I hear the squealing i freak and tell Chris and Paetyn to have a good time i'll be waiting outside whenever they get done. After some serious convincing I say ill go in only if chris holds my hand the whole time. It took awhile but i warmed up to the birds also.

Helping Daddy wash the truck

She thinks the treadmill is the funniest thing so i turned it was down and let her walk on it. she got tired fast and slowly fell off the back.


Around the beginning of the summer Paetyn learned to climb out of her crib. Unfortunately I was the one that taught her by accident. anyway since it's impossible to contain her anymore we just moved her to the big bed. :( She's growing up so fast.

The last 6 months

I'm terrible at the whole blogging thing obviously; its been FOREVER since the last post. So much has happened in the last 6 months: graduation, vacation, new job, lots more time at home, our anniversary, grad school...just to name a few. once again this post will mainly be pictures to bring everyone up to date on what we've been doing. i hope to keep it more up to date from here on out HOPE being the key word:)

I saved all my tips at school and a bunch of other money to buy this for chris for graduation/anniversary. He was so surprised

we took a cruise for our graduations/anniversary with our friends the Gardners it was so fun

Ensenada, Mexico(cruise)

I graduated Cosmo School Hallelujah!!! 1600 plus hours were spent there although i'm so glad i did it i'm super glad to be done. Special thanks to my awesome mother in law who kept Paetyn all those hours.

Chris received his associates(E.A.) and Bachelors(NAU) in the mail on the same day. HaHa. After he opened them i asked him if he felt smarter now that he had the papers he said ya. lol Way to go babe we are so proud of you.

So there you have it! Chris was accepted to ASU and UOW for his masters program after a lot of thought and prayer he decided on UOW. He gets up and does school before work then works all day and comes home to more school at night. He works so hard for our family and me and Paetyn sure appreciate it. I just got a job working at a salon 3 afternoons a week so i'm still able to stay at home with Paetyn the majority of the time. And Paetyn, well she's almost 2 but I'm pretty sure she's been in the terrible 2's for months now(must be that Goodman blood haha) but she sure is the light of our lives and such a cutie.
