I ran into a dear friend that I haven't seen in forever yesterday. She ever so kindly reminded me that I haven't updated my blog in quite some time, so here we go..... thanks Natalee ;) Lots has happened, of course, since my last post. It's probably easier if I just explain as the pictures tell the stories.

Those of you who live in Herriman may recognize this parking's on the east end of where the Smith's is.
See the pothole?....or should I say potholes?

When it's filled to the brim with water it looks like a puddle. One doesn't realize that it's a good 6-8" deep until your front driver side tire is IN IT! This is the picture after my car splashed a ton of water out of said hole.

Aftermath?? A cracked bumper........

A flat 2 month old tire....

And a whole lot of frustration. Luckily, thus far the owner of the shopping complex has paid for a new tire. We're working on the bumper being fixed still. Talk about a crappy way to start the day!

Just over 3 weeks ago Ava was at my parent's house. Her and her cousin were playing around the swingset. Her cousin Rylee was swinging and evidently Ava walked right behind her as she was coming backward. This resulted in a broken collar bone. Poor little thing. She has actually done really well with it, all things considered. She's been pretty good about wearing her sling and wrap (most of the time). She is supposed to wear the sling for a total of 6....yes 6 weeks. We're halfway there......

Ava loves to draw her name and smiley faces lately. Only thing is she almost ALWAYS draws her name upside down. Weird. I'm sure she'll get the hang of it.

Ava's first day of preschool! She absolutely loves preschool. She's always so excited to tell me what she got to do that day when I pick her up.

She decided we needed to take a pic in front of her school on the 2nd day too. :)

Ava decided to get in the hot tub with grandpa one night. She came out in her cousin Shaelynn's swimming suit (who is 3 years older than her). LMAO!!!!!!

She recently had a school fieldtrip to Discover Gateway, which is basically like the new children's museum for those who don't know. She had a blast! We stayed for about 3 hours and she DID NOT want to leave.

She play in the pretend store area for at least half the time we were there. SHE LOVED IT!

I decided to start making cakes to make a little extra cash here and there. I realy enjoy doing it. If you'd like you can check out my cake blog @ . Here's a few of the cakes I've done recently...

Baby shower

A smash cake for a cute little 1 year old

Angry Bird's cake I helped my friend Tiff put together for one of her friends.

Rhett also started school a couple of weeks ago. He's taking Calculus and a mechanical engineering course. He loves his engineering course.....calculus on the other hand....not so much. Can't say I blame him, I get confused with algebra. He's working at it really hard though. I think he's been up studying late pretty much every night since school started.

All is going well with my pregnancy! Haven't really narrowed down any names yet though. Hopefully we deicde before he's born, that'd be good I suppose. We're definately open to any suggestions! I have a little under 8 weeks until my due date! Hopefully these last 2 months go by quickly. Luckily it will be cooling down soon. That ought to help (I hope).

Thanks for reading!
