A Fiery Fourth!

   So yeah it was fiery hot, but literally there were fires everywhere in Utah, i counted 9 just while we were there. It was crazy, smoke hung low in the city like a thick fog. Boston's allergies where really aggrevated so that caused some trouble along with a sickness that took us all down one by one and never two at the same time. Other than that we had a stinkin blast! Jason's family is so easy to be around. I loved visiting Jason's sister kristen and her family. She is such a go getter when it comes to home improvement, mommying, schooling, well anything! We sat under the awning she built on her back porch and it felt like camping, well that was becasue of the fires, but i loved it. Kim was there to play with all the chillins and share her wood working adventures, Jenny and her fam kept it busy and entertaining, and it was so fun chatting with Mandy and watching Kate play with the kids. It was a special treat because Steven was there with his sweet girfriend Desi. She is already so loved by the fam!   i mean she is sweet and laughs at my jokes (really important), and most importantly, loves steven so much! And, i love her amazing fashion skills! Grandma and Grandpa are a favorite of course!

 We spent time at a small amusement park, and the Lindon pool! We also got a chance to do a fourth fo July bbq with our great friends the walkers! we love spending time with them and they always fit us in to play. It was so neat becasue i was able to take pictures for some people taht i really love. SO, here are some pics of the fourth, our reunion and my some fun photo shoots for friends.
 Isn't Chrissy so beautiful while she is pregnant! She had her sweet Cambridge Collete just a week ago and i am so happy for her!

 This is Jenny's beautiful family! I love Jenny's big smile and seeing it in each of her children!
 We had to made a trip to the BYU bookstore while we were in Provo! Its really super weird to go back with kids, i feel so old.
 This picture is so pretty of her but it kind of creeps me out,like a pic we would hang at her funeral, uh i did not just saythat out loud did i. This is not an omen, Story is really healthy and will be alive for a very long time, ok my foot is in my mouth and i can't get it out, aaahhh.
 Cuteness Bostie!

 You can see a little of that sickness we passed around, Story's eye is all swollen, and still she is adorable.

 Story and Crew Walker are just 10 weeks apart! Giving luvs!
And here is the whole Mcintyre clan! 
    I also had such an awsome time hangin with Bret Haylie and Cash! They are so easy to be around and hilarious! Cash is such a cutie! i have some stinkin cute pics of there family but not with me right now so i will have to post them later, and then all of you can see just how cute they are together!

So, mushy title right? Well, it true and I'm really missing them right now. Yes, this is Jason posting and Emy  and the kids are in Arizona for the week visiting Grandma Kathy and Grandpa Will. I've been trying to do all kinds of things around the house so that Emy would come with things cleaned, fixed, built, hung on the wall, and above all else, know that I love her and missed her this week.  Aside from the physical things I can do around the house, I know she will appreciate this blog post and the fact that I updated our blog header and photos on the right side bar.

Lets face it, we've been pretty bad at blogging, but I know that Emy wants to keep fun records, and loving memories somewhere, so I want to contribute! I'm getting off topic... so I really love my family. I  have been looking through lots of pictures to do the blog header and to clear some memory off the computer, and I just see such smiling, wonderful, smart, cute, and loving faces! I know my view point is biased, but my kids are just jaw dropping adorable. Sure, there are times I am pulling my hair out, frustrated, anxious, or impatient, but all is forgotten when we share special moments everyday. They come at the darnedest times, like when Story will ask me a question in the car, and before I can finish my answer she interrupts with "ARE YOU KIDDING ME!" That's a current favorite ;) Or Boston will be snuggling with me on the couch during a routine episode of the Backyardagins and say, "I love you daddy" and pull me in tight. They happen often and regularly, and that's what makes this the best job in the world.

And to top it all, I have the most amazing business partner! Emy is a loving, gentle, compassionate mother that knows how to fix every one's owies, including mine. She is to hard on herself, which just goes to say how concerned she is with each one of our well-being. She seems to find time for things she has to do, things she wants to do, things she hates to do, and then still give more love and hugs when its all done. Last weekend we went to the temple, and got to attend the sealing of one of our friends who got baptized a year ago. It was so amazing to see them at the alter, after being married for 10 years, and to see their three children sealed to them. Emy and I stayed after and did proxy sealings for an hour and it was really special. I know that I will be with her and our family forever.

I want each of my family members to know how much Daddy loves them, and I have a testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Somehow it seems easier to type it here, so I will... I know that we have a loving father in heaven that has prepared a perfect plan for us. I know that Jesus is our Savior and that we can find strength and comfort through his atonement. The fullness of the gospel has been restored in these latter days and we have a living prophet of God in our midst. As we listen to his counsel and follow the teachings of Savior we will find true and lasting happiness! This "good news" gives me so much direction in this ever hectic world, and I'm eternally grateful for that. I share this in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

With that being said... who wouldn't want to see some cute pictures?! Thanks for reading!

easter 2012

I love summer! Love it! Its warm, the kids are running around in the backyard, helping me water the garden, playing in the fountain. Last night we ate outside in backyard and it was heaven. I am so greatful for the tender mercy of Summer, but especially for the opportunity to feel joy again. For a while i have been down and now i have found the right medication and i feel so much joy. Especially with my two amazing funny and insightful children and a husband who loves and serves me with so much gumption that i feel undeserving of this amazing life. I am so greatful for my eternal family and for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints, with its guidance the true definition of joy is attainable in this life. I wish i could give this joy to everyone so they could feel what it is really like to have heaven on earth! Anyway just so happy, i am depositing a lot in the bank for those hard days when i will need to take withdrawals.

18 Months Story bug!

Story Turned 18 months on the 1st of March! It was a huge deal because this means that Story gets to go to Nursery at church! This is an even bigger deal for Jason and I because this means that we actually get to go to church! No more walking the halls following story and picking up her fishie crackers behind her.
  Anyway, i was such a proud momma on Sunday. Story went to nursery and was able to stay! yay Story i am so proud of you! And, if that wasn't enough, Boston was asked to say the prayer in primary! It was so fun to go down to Primary to support him. He was so excited to get to sit in the big chairs up front. When he got up he was really nervous, but his voice turned to a yell when he realized how awsome it was to be on a microphone! it was hilarious! Then i told him to speak softer and he started whispering! Man what fun it is to be Story and Boston's mommy! So we took the kids out to a park here in Folsom and took some 18 month old photos of Story, so here they are!

 I mean seriously, that smile is killer!

   Of course i had to put a sad face one, i mean this is story's face half the time. haha

Thanksgiving 2011 Utah

Thanksgiving was so fantastic this year! We decided to meet up with my family in Utah since my cute sis in law was very preggers and couldn't travel. It was a long drive, but splitting it in half made it alot easier. I had seen some really great pics taken on the salt flats so i couldn't wait to stop and take some quick ones of my own, kind of amazing huh.

It's crazy the amount of light that bounces off the white salt!

We were on a 12 hour drive so the kids are scruffy and in their jammies, but i loved every minute of it! It reminded me of roadtrips with my parents when i was growing up. My Dad used to always take us sailing on our way out of town from so cal. we were always soaking wet and crying! haha now my kids are paying for it!

I made the cousins matching turkey t-shirts! yaya i love mommie stuff!

 Look at stories crazy hair and that face! haha she looks nuts!
 see these are my silly brothers!
  Look at stories crazy hair and that face! haha she looks nuts!

 Boston had so much fun in Bret's backyard. He even found a sea shell! Where the heck did that come from?!

 The food was amazing, via Haylie, but the company was eaqually awsome! my family is so hilarious, especially all of them at once.
Boston loved the food! and loves uncle bret!

 My Brothers look crazy!
    Oh look at my boys! So yeah, it was amazing, and its kind of funny cause i didn't get a single pic of my parents but they were there being awsome as ever, and i have to put out a special thanks to Minta Michael and Sarah Keller for letting us stay at their house for the week. I miss Minta all the time so it was amazing to see her every day and spend time with her beautiful family!
