I use this blog as a journal type thing as well as for blogging. So I just want to say something that has really been bothering me. For all those mom's out there that are blessed to be able to stay home with your kids please be grateful that you get to. It is so hard to leave Mia everyday knowing that I will miss something cute or exciting that she will do while I am working. I am sick of hearing or seeing mom's complaining about their kids while they are home. Believe me when I say I would trade you in a second without a thought.
Anyways, I am not usually one to complain but it has been eating at me the past couple of weeks and I had to get it out. If you are a working mom I understand how it feels to leave your kids. Does anyone know if it ever gets better? Thanks for listening.
On a positive note I am grateful for my job and the flexibility that it brings its just hard to be away from my little girl for so many hours of the day.

Bear Lake 2010

We went to Bear Lake last weekend for the family vacation. We went up Thursday night. It was nice to have a day off of work and enjoy Mia. We went through Logan to pick up Maggie and got a yummy Bear Lake shake on our way to the cabin. They were tasty. On Friday and Saturday we played on the beach and in the water. Mia loves the water and would stay in it all day if we would let her. She went on her first Jet Ski ride with daddy and loved it. We had good food, good company, and a lot of fun.

Nichol Family Reunion

We had a fun family reunion dinner a couple weeks ago up in Midway at a club house. We enjoyed spending the afternoon with the family and watching Mia swim and play with the basketballs of course. Thanks for a fun day!

I love how Kade pulled his shorts up.

Bees Game

For my dad's birthday we went to the Bees game, it was a blast. We missed Dustin, he started a new job that week and couldn't make it. We had Chicago Dogs, cotton candy, and the bees even WON! Thanks for a great time family, I love you!

The Return of Dally

One night we came home and my dad was there which we knew he would be and we pulled up to the garage and out popped Dally. He had been traveling for almost 5 months and we missed him so much. Kade and Dally hugged and cried they missed each other, it was so cute. Then Dally hugged me and I cried, since he is my twin (born 5 years apart :) Dally we are so happy to have you back, we missed you so much!


One day we came home from work and we had turned the hose on and Mia loved it. So we let her get soaked in her clothes. It was so much fun. The joys of being a child, I would love to get that excited about water coming out of a hose and now I get to through Mia's eyes. I love you more than you know little girl, you make me so very happy!

Kade has been working hard for five years to become a journeyman electrician. He had to work 8,000 hours, go to school 4 years, and take 3 tests. Most people fail the first time they take the tests but Kade worked really hard and passed them all on the first try. I love you baby and I am so proud of all your hard work.
