Heaton Family Reunion 2014

Do you love family reunions?
Because I LOVE family reunions.
Its not very often that I get to go to one.

    Because they are always far.
    I usually have to travel that distance ALONE with 3 young babes.

I get to go to another one at the end of July.  Another long drive, but Mr. S will be tagging along. (Can I get a HALLELUJAH?!)

I surprised my parents by showing up a day early which left a whole entire day to play before getting cold and dirty in the mountains.

Grandpa knows just how to have fun.
A day at the Aquarium with cousins.
AND a movie after. How to train your Dragon II.

Honestly, Grandpa's kind of amazing.

Sharks are incredibly cool. And bubba's would agree.

Let the camping commence! That's just kinda how we roll in the Heaton Fam.

3 nights and 4 days. 
In the woods.
The freezing cold woods just above Sundance.


(Uncle Rick and Aunt Ashlie)

I slept in my tent on the first night.
Thank goodness my parents had a trailer! This Arizona girl and her little gecko's would have froze.

On Sunday, the day was spent on an exhausting but gorgeous 2 mile hike to Stewart Falls.

It was incredible! 

Im a pretty lucky girl to have been able to enjoy it with my babes.

What did I tell ya? Majestic! 

There's this game we play. I have know idea what it's called. But it's always a huge family tournament.

No prizes. Just the pure satisfaction of placing high.
Im not very good, but with my rocking team mate Katie, we took 3rd. (or maybe it was 4th?) I'll stick with 3rd....  Zach, I have 2 words - "BOOM baby!!"

Our last day on the mountain it started to rain as we broke down camp and drove out......

.....and it ended like this. Snow covered mountains and all of us finally showered and cozy in sweaters, thankful we didn't get snowed on in the mountains.

I could live here forever.

ROAR! Vance is 4!

Attention everyone!

My sweet and terribly difficult son turned a ROARING 4 years old on May 28th.

Of course we partied!
In Dino fashion.....

And clearly I wasn't paying any attention to his cake banner.....
Lets just say dinosaurs have an accent?

Rented this watery bounce house as the entertainment of the party.
So glad I did!

And yes, yes I did partake of the watery fun.

 (Olivia Bullock, Declan Marshall, Jacob Bradshaw, Mackenzie Marshall, Edward Marshall, birthday boy, Gemma)

Thanks to all these adorably scary dinosaurs for making the party such a hit....
And a very happy birthday boy.

Happy Birthday my little chubby Bubba boy!!

Vegas 2014

For the first time ever really, Mr. S and I got to get away for a few days without the babes.

Thanks SO much to my mom and sister!

I fought for the beach but Vegas won. And Vegas kicked my butt with a damn virus.
After day one, even.


Mr. S kept me drugged up so I could try and survive the remainder of our vacation. In all honestly though, I wanted to die. I hadn't been that sick in a very long time.

I did enjoy being kidless....
laying by the pool....
eating good food (when i felt up to it)...
Cirque du soleil "KA"....

There are some dirty nasty awnry people on the strip though......too much skin.......

Vegas makes me feel gross..... 

Despite being sick, I loved the piece and alone time i had with Mr. S. 

It was desperately needed and that need was fulfilled. 

Next year WILL NOT be Vegas.
