What a wonderful Sister's weekend I've had. On Friday, me and Maddie left Andy and Garen behind and went to Burley. My dear friend, Brenda got to join in as my third sister this weekend and come see the exciting Burley, Idaho.
Right when we got there we headed to Natalie's reception, which was beautiful! I got to see Chanc and Alisha and their handsome little boys!
The three little girl cousins had so much fun together. They got to paint, make necklaces, have a tea party, go on bike rides and just have non stop fun! And the best part was that they mainly entertained themselves so that left me and my sisters open to play games, watch movies, and hang out together! Even though I feel like I need a day to rest after my vacation-it was so much fun. Thanks for coming with Brenda, you are now officially part of the family!

Today was a nice sunny hot day. Hot enough to get the pool out.
We were going to get it out first thing, but I found out our Realtor was showing the house today. So I quickly cleaned up (as much as possible with 3 kids in the house, Avery was here today). Then we took off to the park while they looked at the house. When we got back we had just enough time to blow up the pool and get cooled off.

Saturday morning, Andy's parents were nice enough to take Maddie to her last soccer game and to have both kids all day while Andy and I went to Salt Lake for the wedding. Nat's wedding was so beautiful! She looked beautiful, the ceremony was beautiful, and it was just so fun to see her incredibly happy and glowing! We went to the luncheon afterwards at the Old Spaghetti factory and enjoyed talking with Carrol and Chanc, and their husbands!
of course, me and Carrol had to get our picture taken too-
Andy and I got back in Logan just in time to meet his family at Frederico's to celebrate Jann's birthday.

Maddie had a soccer game tonight, it rained a bit but the kids didn't seem to mind.
Maddie was an awesome little goalie. And as you can tell by the video, she likes to spin and flip and play around when the ball isn't right in front of her. She loves to play but I do have to remind her she is in the middle of a soccer game sometimes!
I love coaching this little team! Saturday is their last game which I will miss to go to Natalie's wedding. Since I won't be their, I gave the team their soccer pillowcases and little soccer ball treats. Thanks again mom for helping me make all of them!
(the boys pillowcases were red)
Andy and I took a trip there yesterday to check things out. I must say it is not the most glamorous town I've ever seen. :(
But, Andy has a good opportunity to run the Sports Authority store there and get the experience and the raise in pay that he's been looking for. We are planning on this being a temporary move, maybe a year or two. Rock Springs is not a place we really want to stick around and raise a family. But there are some nice areas and I hope we can find a good house in a nice little neighborhood. There are only 2 LDS church buildings in the whole area and just one stake. This will be a huge change for us since we are used to seeing church buildings on every block and where there are so many church members that the my little neighborhood makes up the whole ward. I know this will be a learning experience for all of us and can only bring us closer together and closer to the church.
They want Andy as soon as we can get there, so we will be putting our house up for sell this week as well as trying to find a place to move into. Andy and I are both nervous about this new change, but we both feel like we need to do it. Onto the Cowboy State. (don't worry I'm not going to start wearing wranglers).

There was guy in this blowup suite, it was so funny. Maddie was laughing really hard and Garen was terrified of it.-

Grandma entertaining the kids while we wait-
The kids after it was done-
This is the size of booster they were testing, I didn't realize it was so big!-
It's not as cool on the video as it is in person. (It doesn't blast off till about 43 sec.)
