My life the past month!!

If you havent heard yet, we are moving to Nampa (Boise), Idaho! We will be leaving on Thursday the 30th at 2am!! Holy Cow, i know right?!! We are moving up there to have better oppertunities for our family. Rick will be working at the Corrections facility as a supervisor cook, the inmates do all the cooking and so hes their supervisor. This picture is just one of the 2 1/2 rooms that has all our stuff piled in it!! oh my goodness it has been quite difficult living in this kaos!! The worst part is i will pack something that i havent needed in months and then all the sudden i need it the day after, ie. the Abriva cause i randomly got a cold sore!! ANNOYING! Anyways, im planning on taking lots o' pics on the drive up and what not so as soon as i get the comp in order there ill post again!! Love all of you that i havent been able to see before leaving AZ!!! :)

Oh gauge..... :)

Some fun we have had in the last week! :)
My sweet little boy makes me laugh on a regular basis!

Ya..... this it what happens when daddy gets a hold of the vacume.... hahaha

Elder Jake Thompson!! :)

What a handsome young man!!

Classic Jake and Becs

Jake and Becs

Its hard to believe this little guy is going to be three when he gets back!!

not the best picture but its the only one i got of the both of us.

I just want to give a quick shout out to my cousin Jacob. He has now been gone a week to serve a mission in the Everett, Washington area. This has been sorta surreal for me since he is the first family member of mine, that i have been so close to, to send out on a mission. I guess its also because its kinda a preview of what it will feel like when my Little brother Joseph will go, which is by next summer!! I am just sooo proud of him and i know without a doubt he is going to be the BEST missionary!!! I Love you Jake!! See you in 2 years!!!! :):)

Um.... WOW!

This is what happens when you leave a box of doughnuts in a childs reach!!
Ya please take a look at my now glazed couch!!

Blurry i know but its the only one i have of him ripping it apart.

Hahaha what a Turd!!! I love him!!! :):)

Ricks 30!!!!!

So since Rick and Gauges birthdays are so close together we decided to not do anything big for ricks birthday this year cause Gauges was such a big birthday. I know Ricks was too but Rick doesnt care to much for his birthday anyways. Since it was also a sunday for family dinner my mom made him his favorite dinner and brownies with all the fixens.
Yeah its daddys birthday!!! :)
Ricks "Cake"

Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you.......

He was sooo happy when he saw that huge delicious bowl of deliciousness!!!

I love this pic!! ha ha obviously Gauge wanted to run around instead of take pictures!

Gauges 1st Birthday!!!!

His Birthday morning, July 9th, we put out his presents in the middle of the front room so when he came in he would see them. He loved it! He got two construction trucks, a hard hat, a shovel, a rake, and a stuffed soccer ball.
That night to celebrate both Rick and Gauges Birthday, Ricks birthday is two days after Gauges, Rick decided he wanted to go back to Rawhide. Our friends Shaun, Jodi, Brady, and baby boy came to celebrate with us.

Shaun eating a Rocky Mountain oyster!!!!! He loved them!!! YUCK!!! I do have to admit that i tried one and it was discusting!!! It was all about the texter!! Blah!!!!

Ya the live band sang to him and when everybody cheered he cried..... ha ha

His Birthday Party the next day, July 10th. It was Construction themed. I really wish i took more pictures of the decorations.
*I make Mud look good!!!*
Shwimming. First time ever and he loved it! I was having an anxiety attack having him in the water so i let grandma take over so i would stress so much.

Aww... So relaxing

Birthday cake! We got it frosted in white and yellow with the writting and i put the trucks, "rode", and "dirt" on myself. I think it turned out pretty cute.

Gauges cake
