Has it really been a month.....

since my last post? When I started this blog I promised myself I would update at least 2xs per month. However, I've just not had the time to do it. Anyhow, a lot has happened over the past month. I had a birthday and it was a rough one. I really thought I was a year younger then I really am. Thanks sister for breaking the news to me! It was like that episode of friends where Phoebe thought she was a certain age and then found out she was a year older. It was like I'd gained a whole new year in a matter of minutes. I really kinda sucked! However, I did new a new camera from my mom and have been taking pictures. I need to get them downloaded off of the camera and get them posted. I have a goal to do that sometime this weekend!

Kyle started a new job back on April 20th for the city where we live. He's so funny. He told me the other night "you know when you drive by a city worker and there's 4 leaning on a shovel and one working" that's really how it is working for the city. Needless to say, he's the one that's working. My dad always told me when I was younger that it's easier to find a job when you already have a job. Well, I think he was right. Kyle put in his resume with a local company a few months back and we never heard back from them. Well, they called yesterday and offered him a job. The hourly pay is $6.00 more per hour then what he's making for the city and it was only a part-time job that went until Oct. This is like almost a $1000 per month pay increase WOO HOO (maybe we can get me that new car now)! He couldn't really turn it down. He starts on June 1st. He really feels bad that he's leaving the city job but he needs to do what's best for our family. He said that the city was very good with him and even told him that if the have a permanent job come available, they give him a call to see if he's interested in working for them full-time.

Little Ava has been better. She was so sick this past weekend. I don't think she's ever been that sick. She's still not 100%. I hope she peps back up soon. It makes me so sad to see her when she's sick. We did her testing for preschool a couple of weeks ago and the average score is 85-115, Ava scored a 127. I knew she was a smart cookie!

The summer months are fast approaching and I'm so excited. I can't wait to get out in the sun, BBQ, boating, camping, riding 4-wheelers and hanging out with good friends. The last few days here have been so nice... but, we do live in Utah so it could technically be 90 degrees today and snow tomorrow. I'm so totally not kidding!

I have to have a minor... well not so minor surgery on the 29th for some female problems that I'm having. I'll let everyone know how it goes. I promise I will post some pictures soon! Loves....
