Acute Appendicitis. "Gangrenous and dying"

About a month ago a started having some abdominal discomfort. It kept getting worse so we decided to go to a local Urgent Care (I don't love going to them because I feel like they don't ever diagnose you, they just give you a band aid, pat you on the back and send you on your way) but tryi g to keep costs down, we tried it over the ER. And that's exactly what happened. They didnt diagnose me with anything and home we went.
The father along in the day it got the more pain I was experiencing. I was in pain and could not get comfortable! Around 10 pm I was shivering uncontrollably and at that point I told Brit we needed to go to the ER.
We called some great friends in our ward to come watch the girls and off we went.
I was so miserable. We got checked in nd after a 5 minute conversation with the nurse, he k we it was appendicitis. Luckily the surgeon was already there performing another appendectomy so we got right in.
The procedure was pretty quick and it felt so good to not be in pain anymore. Post op Brit recorded me saying some pretty funny stuff coming out of anesthesia.
4 weeks later and I am as good as new.
The ER hospital bill should be fun.

Suma Time 2017

 We decided to go Camping up AF canyon with a buddy and his daughter a few weeks back. We found a good spot on a busy weekend so we were happy about that. It was pretty mellow and we ended up roasting dogs, smores, playing in the hammock and having a pretty good breakfast. Glad we went. I enjoy camping with my family.

Out of the blue one day Mckenna decided she didn't want to wear diapers anymore. she had a few accidents but overall she has been doing great. She will wake up, and go potty all by herself, which is awesome that we aren't having to do diapers anymore. Yay!

Avery started Kindergarten. She is a "later gator" and goes Mon-Fri 12:30-3:30.  We are very excited for her.

Avery played soccer during the month of August. It was a very busy month with soccer 2-3 days a week along with everything else. It was fun to be her coach and watch her play.

Some trail riding with a few buddies up AF canyon. The scenery up there is spectacular. 

Soccer Picture day.

For Brits b-day we went to Bookdocks. Here is mom and Avery on the Go Kart Track.

This summer was the hottest one on record. It's still in the 90's into Sept. I'm ready for cooler temps but the girls sure did enjoy their pool this summer. Kennas=Grumpy Gills in the background.
Nice yoga Aves.

More soccer

I took Avery up to Oregon/Washington to participate in a Motocross Race with my Bro and his family. It was a really good time. That area of the US is so green! She enjoyed her time with her cousins.

Kennas up at Albion Basin I think. 

We went to Yellowstone with some friends from our Ward. It was awesome! It's so peaceful up there. So much natural beauty (like Brit) up there,. We had a wonderful time and I hope it's not too long before we go visit again.

Literal Mckenna

The girls like going for rides on their Electric Dirt Bike. I was riding with Mckenna the other day and she kept looking down so I told her to "watch where she was going and look up". She took me quite literal and would look WAY up when giving it gas.  She is Cracks me up.

70 Degrees in March

 Our winter was a really good one but I wouldn't mind another Pow Day or Two at the Bird. 
However The weather has been amazing lately and I love being outside during these 70 degree days.
I'm glad I enjoy it as much as the girls. 

Once it warms up the kids on our street come out in droves.

                  One day we went to Our Neighborhood Park and flew a Kit. It was fun.

Avery is a pretty good helper (for the first 20 minutes or so) when we go clean the church

 Love these little ladies and them holding hands, but I'm sure this won't last forever but I'll definitely take it while I can!
