My little preschooler

I shed a couple tears on the first day of school! My little girl is in pre-school!!! seriously...already!!! Ally was a little upset that she didn't get to start school with her best friends (she missed the deadline by a couple weeks) but I am ok with it though because I get to spend more time with my (not so) little girl! I can not believe how fast time goes by, especially with your kids! I remember like it was yesterday when we brought her home from the hospital driving as if we were 90 years old because we had such precious cargo in the back seat! Now next weekend she will be 5! I am so blesses to have her in my life. Like her little preschool teacher said to me yesterday "she is perfection, and a joy to be around" I could not have said it better myself, She definitely brightens up a room with her sweet little presence! I thank the lord every day for my beautiful kids, I don't know what I did in my life to deserve them, but I am forever grateful!

Holy Crap!!

Man for those of you who actually look at my blog, I have been super boring!! It has seriously been so long since I have posted anything!! Whoops! I have been ignoring my personal blog and paying a lot more attention to my other blog. That's awful! Man I don't even know where to begin! Ok let see lets do a little catching up shall we:
 My little man isn't so little anymore :( Rhett turned 2
Ally went to her first fashion show. She LOVED it 

We've been to park city with some WONDERFUL friends
I sprained my kankle ankle... OUCH!!
Rhett is now potty trained.... YIPEE no more diapers.. (for a while) ;)
Joey and I celebrated our 6 year anniversary BEST ANNIVERSARY EVER! if you want to read about it go HERE
We had a scary wild fire way too close to our house. No worries we are fine :)
We took a trip to St. George
Had a wonderful 4th of July
Ally is a little business woman and had her very first little lemonade stand. She did pretty dang good, with it being .25 cents per cup she made $14.00!! Every little customer she would say "Thank you, have a nice day!" too cute! She had so much fun!
And the most recent little trip we had was to bear lake. We had such a great time! Four wheeling, boat riding, games and great food! 

I think that sums up most of our excitement for the summer so far! We are headed to vernal tomorrow to go visit Grandma Jeanne. The kids are so excited. I will try and keep up on my personal blog! I seriously have been slacking! If you are a follower I love you for it and I promise I will do better :)

1st day of preschool!!

Yes it is official she is now in preschool. WHY?... why does time have to go by so fast! Yes i know she has already been in for a couple months now but I AM BEHIND ON MY BLOGS :) She absolutely LOVES school and when its time to come home after only 2 hours she complains that its not long enough so I am hoping she will enjoy kindergarden! She is such a little smarty pants I love seeing her learn new things! She already knows how to write her full name (Allyson Jean Collins) and most of her friends first names! She is learning to spell out words now as well! Love this girl!!

IDAHO with friends

Joey and I have a fun little group of frineds, we have known most of the boys for a VERY long time and I am happy that we are still great frineds after so long. Their wives are so awesome & we all have become very close. We decided to have a little get away in lava hot springs and let me tell you it was one of the funnest weekends I have had in a long time! LOTS and LOTS of laughs! I think we have made it a tradition and are going to head up there again sometime soon! Thanks for the fun memories guys!! xoxo


I have not been a very good blogger!!! What the crap! I am sorry I will try MUCH harder!! Ok so where to start I need to play catch up!! Lets start with ........ Mexico.

Joey and I celebrated our 5 Year anniversary in Mexico. We had such a wonderful time, We knew all we would really think about was the kids the whole time but as soon as we skyped
them the didn't even seem to care we were gone! They were having too much fun with Grandma & Grandpa! We stayed at an all inclusive resort called BARCELO. It was so humid there but I got used to it pretty fast although my hair did not! Ha ha I tried straightening it one day and it went curly and frizzy as soon as I stepped outside the hotel!! They had amazing food & awesome excursions. We went Jet skiing, snorkeling, swam in a cave, & zip lining. We didn't get many pictures of the excursions :( The ocean outside the hotel was GORGEOUS!! it was like something out of a movie! It was so great to get away and we cant wait to go back but it was even better to get home to our 2 babies!!
