30th birthday, the rest of the shiz

Alright, so I'll just wrap it up here. Sunday we went to the Bloomfield's church, came back, loaded up our stuff and went to the resort. We decided to go to the Hilton Squaw Peak because our kids are too little to do the slides at Arizona Grand and the other one. So we got in and contemplated if it was against the sabbath to swim and decided it's ok if it's as a family and it's a lot better than the alternative...sitting in the room watching tv together. So we went swimming just at the plain pool for a couple of hours, came back, got some dinner and went to bed. Monday we got up early, went and ate breakfast and headed right to the water slide. Jaden didn't get off of it for 2 days straight. We figured he went about 100x on it since there wasn't a big line ever, especially at 8am. Kam did a bit of everything, the lazy river, the beach pool, the tad pool and the slide. We bought them all animal goggles at big lots the day before. Kam had the crabs, boston had the frogs and jado had the sharks.
This is what Bossy did most of the time..."umped" and "wimmed" from Jase to me. He loved to be underwater . We sprayed him with sunscreen when he had his goggles on and we kept wondering why the dude was running into everything...EVERYTHING, so we looked through his goggles, it was almost blind. But he didn't want to take them off. He was awesome.

Jase took this...I really was happier than I look...and let's pretend that I'm really smaller than I look too.


This is Jado after one of his many slides.
Kam showin off her killer sliding skills.

This is about slide #65 for Jaden.

We had a great time at the resort just swimming and eatting and relaxing. It was a great break from the streak of bad luck I hit the previous week. Which I thought was over until we headed home that day and BAM (but way louder than you just read it) our trailer tire blew. So we had to pull over, no phone reception, so we unhitched the trailer and found a couple parked near Starlight pines fire house and they let us go to their house (which kam loved because they had dead stuffed animals everywhere...Jaden wouldn't leave the car because they had a small terrier) and use their phone. We had my dad bring a friend's parent's trailer to haul ours back. After 4 hours of unloading the trailer...seen below.....

and having a million people stop to help, and give us rootbeer and offer food, we had a couple of guys come with just the right tools to get the horse trailer onto the flatbed trailer. The kids just thought it was a fun pit stop where we got to lounge on the couches.



I'm sure passerbys loved this scene.....

Anyway, thanks to my dad and those two guys we made it home. Jase did have to cancel all of his patients for the day, but we made it...and again, we were thinking our bad luck ran out...um, Jaden got bit up by a centipede this morning...not bit up, but you know, whatever it is that their weird legs do to your skin. Yea, a centipede. yay! Oh, and we're having another boy! Told ya suckers!!!1

Congrats on your amazing maternal instincts. I have no idea what I am having. I do not have your gift. Maybe you could tell me. It will be a while until I find out anyway. I love Hilton Squaw Peak. My entire family stayed there last year and we had a blast. I am glad that you got to do some fun things. You are one hot mama!!

I know you dont ever call people, but when you need a ride and you are in my city CALL ME! It sounds like you got a ton of cool stuff and I can't wait to see it. Is that Kam's bed in the picture of the kids sitting on the side of the road?? I hate that you guys were here and everyone got to see you but us! We suck.

No fun missing out on your trip, but looks like you got to buy tons of fun stuff instead. Um, I LOVE CORTATE! That's where we bought our sectional and I dearly love it. Congrats on another boy! Oh and nice that Jason made all those phone calls to get your $ back, I guarantee I would have been the one on the phone!
