Homeowners

Friday was O.C. Tanner's Lagoon Day. James' work gave all their employees free Lagoon tickets for their families! Last year we went, but Koby was too little to ride anything but the merry-go-round and the train. It also poured down rain on us last year. This year it was the perfect temperature and Koby was big enough for all the kiddie rides. He had a blast!


Koby is a fearless kid. He and James rode the roller coaster together and Koby was raising his arms in the air and grinning. He also decided that he likes to stand up and look over the edge on the Ferris Wheel! After stopping at the top I realized that I should have just waited with Lincoln at the stroller... I am NOT a fan of the Ferris Wheel! Anyways, we had so much fun. O.C. Tanner treats their employees really well. We are grateful for the great job James has.

Waaaaay too happy to be hovering hundreds of feet in the air without a seat belt
Planning how to save my kids if the bucket should fall

This is how Lincoln enjoyed most of the day
Koby and his ride buddy-what a good dad:)
At the dinner James' name got called for a prize. He won a car washing kit! Woohoo! haha. They had some other cooler prizes, but now we have a car washing brush for our new house! Yep. We are doing it. James is out signing the papers right now and if all goes well we will be the proud owners of this 2004 beauty...

3 Bedroom ... 3 Bath + Basement:)

We are moving to Eagle Mountain, the East part- as close as you can get to Saratoga Springs. The area is beautiful! There is a pretty view of Utah Lake and the mountains. We love the atmosphere over there-kids everywhere riding their bikes, joggers, and people just out enjoying life. We have not been wanting to buy just because we want out of Utah, but it was time for a move and it just felt right. James has a great job and will most likely be going back to BYU for an MBA so here we are for a while longer:)

A few weeks ago FIVE single girls moved upstairs! We had a really hard time for the first week-when we brought Lincoln home from the hospital. The noise has caused us to wake up all night long with not only a newborn, but also a toddler. We have literally been running on a couple hours of sleep a night! Five single girls means 5 boyfriends, 5 cars, 10 high heels, etc. They are really nice girls though and it is not their fault we can hear them so much. One of them bought me flowers, diapers, and some sidewalk chalk(for Koby). Anyways, we are grateful for the nice places we have been able to live at, but we are so ready for this new blessing! Cross your fingers all goes well:)
