As you know we were livng in hawaii well that was short lived but it was fun being back for a couple of months to enjoy my home away from home it was quite different with a child and having a husband in school last time we were there me and jay were only dating both working and had free time . Although i did get to go to the beach alot!! and had some mom friends and there was lots of babies but rusty was the youngest and did get beat up alot especially by frank!! so the semester was coming to a close and we had some decisions to make and were running low on cash so we decided to do summer sales which took us all the way to KANSAS yes kansas where dorthy and toto live!! it was quite the experience! jay would work most the day not coming home till 10-12 o clock at night. It was safe to say that me and rusty had alot of time on our hands. We only had a rental because when we moved from hawaii, once again selling our only asset the tundra and leaving mostly everthing in storage and being limited to three bags on an airplane for 4 months is not alot stuff especially with a baby!! So we used the rental car again to buy all new stuff kitcken crib and food. the first couple of weeks were quite boring and i said to myself this is going to be the longest summer of my life and then i met amy and brittney powell the powell girls are sister in laws and both had two children 2 of which were older and 2 who were babies. rusty was smack in the middle and once again was the lil guy always getting bet up and kicked out by the older girls! but these two moms saved my life we hung out every day and had a blast there was a lot of chick-fil-a and parks and of course the farmstead which was actually really cool we went there alot!! summer was moving quite rapidly and it was time for them to go home to utah for a visit for 2 weeks i thought i would die and then i made another friend brook shes pregnant with her first and has a lil dog named waffles(i usually hate lil dogs but this one was cute) so we hung out pool time lots of walmart trips the mall and lots of custard man that custard was good and lets not forget that kansas was on fire!! literally kansas was like a freakin sauna!!! gosh darnit that place was hot there were two weeks were we couldnt even go to the pool because it was so hot poor jay i give him probs i have no idea how he walked door to door in that heat ! there was the occasional er visit for heat stroke oh and the one time he passed out on someones lawn but he was a hard worker and never quite!! so any way me and brook had lots of fun together and its safe to say that it wasnt all bad (oh wait i forgot about the tonando and how we were in some strangers basement for 4 hours...that was bad)I made some life long friends and it was a very big learning experience for our whole family i am glad its over atleast for 8 more months!
So then it was july and my birthday came my sister flew me out to arizona where i had a blast such a neeeded break my mom suprised me and we just chilled all week long saw my good friend ashley and maria pia ate lots of yummy food hit the pool and and laughed and cried together it was just what i needed!! my sister is so amazing i felt so at home and we had a blast at the roller rink we always go when i go to see her in arizona,and im not gonna lie were pretty good at it!. As kids we used to put on disney sound tracks and "figure skate" in the driveway we have some tricks up our sleeves and we still got all the right moves!!.
So summer came to an end and we found out that we did not get into tva which is married student housing at byuhawaii so we decided to make our journey back here to utah pretty much full circle 2 years later we are here and enjoying it we moved to bountiful and have a cute lil condominium and a new car and our lil family. We have moved alot sold all our furniture our car so once again starting from scratch you think we would learn ha! its been an adventure and at times its been hard but i feel like hopefully we are learning from our mistakes making memories and growing!
