St. George

We have been in St. George for over a month now and we sadly only have one week left til we leave.
Becks first time meeting Aunt Amber and cousin Gracie!!  

I am glad he got a chance to spend some time with Grandpa Cox

AHH I love Linds it was fun to catch up and spend some time together

Becks looks just like an Averett.  Grandma has been so good to us this month.  SHe has helped us get through without a Daddy and husband.  Thanks for letting us stay at your house and take over every room.  We had a blast laughing and spending time with you.

Koa has enjoyed every second of preschool.  He does gymnastics and karate.  I know he is going to miss that more than anything. 

First real hair cut, he now looks so much older.  I am lucky to have such a great sister in law.  

Two of my Bestest Friends I could ask for.  Juli Nield is such an amazing girl.  So giving and helpful.  Thanks for all you have done for me this month.  I just laugh with Laura, she is such a fun person to be around.  

Panorama teaching friends

Koa is a mini Noah, it has been proven more and more this month.  Noah thanks for sharing your toys with Koa and being his buddy.

Captain Jack Sparrow loves talking to his Daddy on Skype.  

St. George feels like home to me, I have just loved coaching and being on the soccer field with my kids.  I don't think I will ever be able to hang up the old cleats, and I am glad I had the chance to coach and meet the new team.  FUN times!

Thank you Hudsons

Kera, Patrick, Haidyn, and Reese:

Thank you for letting us take over your house, play with all your toys, drink all your milk, spit in your face (sorry Kera), bit your arms and tag along on your weekend dates. We loved every second with you.

Kera and I discovered our love of guns... we never realized how important they are in our lives thanks to Jimmie and Patrick who renewed our vision on how vital guns are.

My favorite place in this world. I would move here just for this gym. Thanks Kera and Patty for our membership and the best massage! We love you all and miss living with you.

Today when working out at the gym this song came onto my ipod and all I could think about was my man... I did get a little embarrassed as i got a little teary eyed (dumb I know) pushed the tears away with a few blinks and kept hitting repeat for the rest of my workout. Avril Lavigne knows how to describe podiatry externships perfectly!

"When You're Gone"

I always needed time on my own
I never thought I'd need you there when I cry
And the days feel like years when I'm alone
And the bed where you lie is made up on your side

When you walk away I count the steps that you take
Do you see how much I need you right now

When you're gone
The pieces of my heart are missing you
When you're gone
The face I came to know is missing too
When you're gone
The words I need to hear to always get me through the day and make it ok
I miss you

I've never felt this way before
Everything that I do reminds me of you
And the clothes you left, they lie on the floor
And they smell just like you, I love the things that you do

When you walk away I count the steps that you take
Do you see how much I need you right now


We were made for each other
Out here forever
I know we were, yeah
All I ever wanted was for you to know
Everything I'd do, I'd give my heart and soul
I can hardly breathe I need to feel you here with me, yeah

Jimmie I need you in my life, you are the best thing that has ever happened to me. Thanks for being my rock.

The Journey Begins

First I am just in love with the USA national team. I get so nervous before each game, almost like I am going to play. Ha Ha lame I know. I think I am enjoying it even more because I have Kera, Patrick and Jimmie to watch it with. I can't wait til Sunday ....GO USA!!!!!!!
Koa at 4 months
Becks at 4 months...Just wanted to see if they looked anything alike.

My older brother Rob came to visit from New York for a few days in June. He helped us move, played super heros and met Becks for the first time. We had not seen him in over a year we miss you Rob!
Uncle Bill let us stay a few days at his house in Loveland Co before we ventured to Colorado Springs. Koa loved all the open space. It was great to spend some time with Uncle Bill and Aunt Cathy.
I would have been screwed if my Mom did not come out and help me finish packing up my house , taking care of the kids, and flying across the country. I didn't realize how much work the last minute cleaning is especially when you have to feed the little guy every three hours and entertain Koa. Thanks for all the help from my Florida buddies!
Our new home for the month of July! I am really liking it here. I would not mind at all if we call this place home for the next three years.

Happy 4h of July. We are having a blast with the Hudsons! They are so nice to let us stay and hang out. Koa has just taken over their house with Jake and the Neverland Pirates, sword fighting, and chocolate milk. I love Kera and Patty to death. I could not ask for better friends. Thanks guys for letting us stay!

Its hard to say goodbye

Grandma Nadine past away at the end of May. Beckham and I hopped on the plane to be with family. Grandma was suffering pretty bad, at least now she is free from pain and with the love of her life. Although we got together for a sad reason, it was great to see Aunts, Uncles and Cousins that I have not seen in over five years.

Beckham and my sisters little guy Logan meeting for the first time. They are best friends already. Logan is two months older than Becks
This was also the first time my Dad and Sister had met Beckham.
Seriously... Do I have to leave this place?????
Our buddies the Evans took us out on the paddle board. This was on my TO DO list in Florida. Thanks guys

Pretty Sad I know but this was my birthday cake for the big 2-8
Britt and I had fun doing the "craft" at the Art museum. The boys left, but we continued working

Proud artist
Becks is THREE months old already. This boy is growing up so fast. He is a chunky little guy.

I am going to miss my gym friends, (Jen was not here for the picture we will have to photoshop her in) and all of the wonderful girls I have met in Florida. Life seems to just go to fast.
Pezy this picture is for you. Like father like son. Now we are packing up the house and moving on... our first stop is Colorado. We cant wait to hang out with Patty, Kera,and the girls. The next six months should be a fun adventure hopefully I live to tell all about it.

Over due post...lots of pictures

Jimmie and I got to go with our buddies the Goths to the wave rider last week. Once I get the sweet pictures from Katie I will post some action pictures. I had some major wipe outs and whip lash. It was awesome!

Skipping rocks at the Everglades

Sunny Isles Easter Fun. .. We made it a little to late to find any eggs among the beach balls, but the boy enjoyed kicking, wrestling and tackling each other way more.
Koa has done a few photo shoots with a company called NEXT... thanks to Sharon for setting that up. I was surprised at how much work went into one little picture. It was fun to see the behind the scenes action. I fell in love with the boots this company has. I wanted to sneak them into my bag ha ha.

Beckham's first Easter. One of our friends set up an egg hunt around the pool early in the morning for all the kids that live in our two complexes. Koa loved finding all the eggs the Easter bunny left.

Thanks Grandma Kath for the cute outfits.

We had a fun girls day filled with laughs, pedicures, food and the beach. I love these girls and can't even begin to say how much I will miss it here.

My mother in law sent me the cutest book for Mother's Day. My favorite quote was:

If I only had today
I'd hold you and listen
I'd memorize every detail of your face
I'd tell you I love you over and over
I wouldn't let excuses get in the way
Then I'd remind you of forever
And how our love would never change
If I only had today

-Hilary Weeks

I love my THREE boys and I want them to always know how much I love them
