Dax has been sick for about 3 days with a fever, runny nose and cough. I hate to admit it:) I love it! All day Monday he was so huggable, lovable and unbelievably cuddly!! How could a mom not love that??? Cuz normally he is much to busy to be doing any of that! However his newest favorite is giving "Bones" and he will drop just about anything he is doing to give you bones, but don't even think about asking for a kiss, it goes in one ear and out the other meaning:) No way!! He is pretty dang good about ignoring you if he wants to! Little stink!
And Walker fell asleep about 7:00 last night. I thought it was because he is always going a hundred miles a minute and once he finally sits still for 2 seconds he falls asleep, but I think I was wrong. He woke up in the middle of the night coughing with a runny nose. He (along with Avorie) was up most of the night. And this morning he asked to get in the bathtub because he was cold and the next thing I know he is crying saying he just threw up in the bath. When he got out of the tub, he was as white as a ghost and he kept telling me his eyes and his belly hurt. Weird.....his eyes?? He has never said that before. I looked at his eyes and they look like he has been swimming in a chlorinated pool all day long.
Miss Avorie came home from dance last night and immediately went for her blanket because she said she was freezing. She sat up to eat dinner and got the shivers and said she wasn't hungry. I knew something was wrong when Walker asked if we could go to Yogurt Bliss for family night and Avorie said she didn't want to go. (She begs every single day to go Yogurt Bliss) So when I said I have a bad feeling about this and felt her head to find out she had a temperature suddenly she said she was just fine and she would love to go to Yorgurt Bliss and get some icecream, but she didn't want any toppings.....she didn't feel like eating candy! Oh yeah, I knew something was wrong, and I sent her to her bed to lay down. She didn't fight me, and the next thing I knew she was out like a light:) until 3 AM that is. She woke me and asked if she could have a bath in my tub. And she stayed awake the rest of the night. This morning when I went in her room she tried so hard to act like she was feeling fine because she wanted to go to school. I tried to explain to her if she went to school she would pass it to more kids and it would get spread all over. Thank goodness she finally admitted to her belly hurting and decided it would be a good idea for her to get back in her bed.
All 3 fast asleep in their beds......what do I do????
BLOG! Clean, make treats...whatever I want!

Yes, your eyes do not decieve you....goats! We have two pet goats! Most people (at least those who don't live on a farm) have animals like cats, or dogs, maybe even fish, but Morgan thought it would be fun for our kids to raise a goat! As you can imagine, there is never a dull moment at our house!!!
The kids thought that this was the greatest idea ever:) they were so stinking excited! They walked them around for hours, had to show all the neighbors, and every chance they could get they were out checking on them making sure they weren't cold, or if they needed a drink, some food or a even blanket. I guess it will be good for them to have to take care of something because our dang gold fish we caught in the fish pond at the ward party a few months ago (I thought wouldn't last for more than a week) I am now taking care of daily. They have actually become my little friends. I notice them watching me especially when they are hungry. They stick their cute little noses up to the glass and wait for me to notice so I will feed them. So since I take care of our fish, Morgan and the kids are in charge of the goats. For those of you who are wondering where in the world we are keeping those goats.......yep, as WT as it is, they are tied up in our backyard!! The Evans Family Farm......our petting zoo:) Come on over!
As if that isn't funny enough, Morgan thought it would be great to give one of the goats to Matt & Mick for their birthdays!! So we tied a big bow around it's neck and delivered it to the party!! Matt, being the animal lover that he is, I thought would freak out, but he actually thought it was pretty dang funny! ......And it was hilarious!!!

My little Walker on his first day of his second year of preschool with Miss Natti!! Maybe I'm just a little biased, but I'm pretty sure he could pose for a cute Gap commercial or something fun!!! He has such a personality....I'm still not sure most days what to do with him, but he sure holds a special place in my heart!!!! And that I know for sure!!!!
Good Luck buddy!! Or should I say Good Luck Natti???

Yay!!! Oops! Did I say that out loud??? It's ok, Avorie is soooo excited she can't stand it! So it's ok that I'm a little excited, right??? It's just it's a whole lot quieter around here when they aren't fighting with each other because they are bored out of their minds! Don't get me wrong.....summer is a great break and I love it, but I also look forward to being back on some sort of a schedule! So let me get a woop-woop to the new school year!!!
Avorie and Parker somehow made it into the same class again this year!! We are so excited for that! They have the cutest little teacher, Miss Guymon. We are going to miss Mrs. Bird, but I think we're on track for another great year!
I do have to say I am really going to miss having Avorie around all the time. Not only is she a great helper with Dax....she has found a new love this summer:) CLEANING!!!! You heard me right! She absolutey loves to clean and organize! She could be lost for hours and I would find her knee deep in toys downstairs happily reorganizing the bins, or scrubbing the bathrooms, or cleaning out her closet and drawers. It's a mother's dream come true!!! A child that loves a clean house!! I thought it was only a stage she was going through, but so far it's lasted all summer and into the first week of school! She is me!!! I love that I have a helper to help keep this house in order!!! Thanks Ave for helping me out!! I appreciate and love you very much!!!

They danced to Taylor Swift's "Our Song", Tim McGraw's "I Like it I Love it", and Miley Cyrus' "Icecream Freeze". Avorie spent hours practicing in her room, and even taught Paisley all her dance moves!

One of Daxton's new favorite past times is climbing and weaving through the chairs underneath the table. He loves it, but sometimes he gets high centered and it tends to make him a little mad! I just laugh and know that he'll find his way through eventually!
My favorite part:) It will keep him entertained for hours! Yipee!!
Notice the nice raspberry on his forehead! He took his first head dive out of the stroller while it was being pushed full force down a hill by guess who........? You guessed it! WALKER!!! He better be one tough kid if he ever plans on surviving his big brother!!! All the luck buddy!

Traditions, traditions, and more traditions!!! Who doesn't love them??? It's what making memories is all about!! I absolutely love it!! July is one of my most favorite months in the year, not to mention red, white & blue and watermelon, too!!! This year, like most, we start off the week with the rodeo, actually not true, we usually kick the week off with the carnival, but this year my darling little nephew, Mason, was riding a sheep in the rodeo on the firt night so we chose to go there instead to watch him hold on for dear life!!! It was great! Good job, Mas! The kids always seem to love the rodeo, and let's be honest, so do I!! I've been almost every single year I can ever remember! I love to go and see all the people I haven't seen forever, it's like old home week, and it brings back so many memories!
The Grand Parade!! This year instead of sitting in front of Zions Bank, we joined Matt & Ro down by Western States!! It was great, you could see things so much better. I think we'll be joining them from now on, if they'll let us!! After all the floats, ball teams, fire trucks, and tractors were thru, we went to carnival to ride a few rides!! This year Avorie thought she would be all brave and ride all the spinning rides, and 1/2 way thru the third one all the excitement began to wear off, and the sickness began to set in!! She didn't look so hot when she finally got off the Berry-go-Round, and in the car on the way home.....she lost her breakfast!!! Right on the seat!! Ooooh Gross!!!! But soon after that, she was right back to normal; however, I don't know if she'll do that again next year, or ever!!! Poor Avorie!
Don't say I didn't warn you!!!
After we got home and she had a nice glass of water, she was a new kid and we were off to eat at the Mexican Resturant, Mi Rancherito! Another tradition we have going on. Yummy!! I practically licked my plate clean, and yes, I was sick, but I couldn't stop myself. It was way too good! And don't anybody worry when we got to Aunt Ro's that night I wasn't the least bit hungry, but who can resist yummy steak & everything sandwiches, watermelon, sausage dip, and homemade strawberry icecream so.......you guessed it, I stuffed my face again!!! Thanks to food, it makes everything wonderful!!! The kids didn't care much for eating, they were way more excited about the dunk tank! Too bad it started to rain!!! Dumb weather ruins all the fun!! The night went out with a bang....literally!! Morgan and I love to watch the fireworks, so would the kids if they could ever keep their eyes open long enough to see them!!
One thing started leading to another......out last night.....Go Kenny!!!! Last night we went to the Kenny Chesney concert with Matt & Rochelle. Way awesome, of coarse! I had so much fun singing and dancing! Thanks to Morgan for being such a good sport singing and dancing right along beside me cause heaven knows he would've rather been doing something else....anything else, but he humored me and at least acted like he was having a good time. What a good sport!! That is why I love him, well.... one of the many!! You know what I love about concerts??? It's that even though I can't sing a note to save my life, I can sing my little heart out and it's so loud no one can even hear me. Either that or they just don't care. Either way, it's great!!! I had a great time! Thanks Morgan for thinking about me (again) and taking me out last night!!!!
Oh my!! Kenny has been one of my personal favorites for years now.....those of you who don't like him...well, let's just say you're crazy!!!! He is so much fun in concert! We only sat down once for about 1/2 a song. The rest of the time we were on our feet dancing and singing!!! It was awesome!!!

Grandma to the rescue......again!!!
Yesterday, Grandma Deb took my kids and spent the day hanging out with them, which left me kidless for almost 10 hours....NICE!!!! She took them to see "Ice Age" in 3D, then she took them on a little hike up Payson Canyon to the Grotto, and then she came to pick up Dax and they ate lunch at McDonald's and spent the rest of the day at Grandma's house. Meanwhile, Morgan and I had the day all to ourselves......it was a little piece of heaven and a much needed break!! Thanks Mom, I love you!! So do my kids, they think you are GREAT!!!
