Flashback Friday: Florida edition

Last December, Rob and I took a short trip to Miami, Florida to meet up with our dear friends from Utah.  I was extremely pregnant, it's hard to believe that I didn't have little Tinley while I was there, considering how huge I was :)  Anyway... we filled our days with many activities, as well as lots of good food, fun and laughs!

Rob insisted on going to Key West to get his sand from the southern most point (he once had some, but one of our dear children accidentally broke the glass Sobe bottle, so he lost his dear sand).  It was a long trip, both ways, but it was a crazy amount of fun renting scooters and a golf cart (they wouldn't let me, 8 months pregnant, ride a scooter :)).  Seriously though, I think Susette and I had just as much fun watching the boys, acting like kids in a candy store, on the scooters as we would have had riding them!

Needless to say, we had an amazing trip!  I can't wait for our next one!  Too bad we can't make it happen with all of our (combined, eight) kids!

We are a busy family of five! I enjoy time with my husband and kids, running, being outdoors, shopping for deals, and cuddling. My wonderful husband keeps busy playing with the kiddos, hunting, fishing, exercising and working on projects around the house. Madisyn is six, in 1st grade, loves being outdoors and isn't one bit afraid of bugs or worms! Landon is four, a spitting image of Daddy, and is the sweetest, naughtiest and funniest little boy, all in one! Tinley was born February 24, 2012 and has already blessed us beyond belief! Here's a glimpse into our crazy and wonderful lives... hope you enjoy!

Tiece of Cake

I've finally decided to make a blog (Tiece of cake) dedicated to cakes... as to not consume the family blog.
