Family Vacation

Well, we have finally decided to take a vacation! Thanks to American Express and the points we had accumulated with all the purchases put on the card :) they paid for our hotel room and the tickets to Legoland!  No vacation is better than a FREE vacation!  We took the boys to see the beach last night and they were on Cloud 9!  It was so cute!  One thing I wish: I wish I could relax more and not worry so much about all the sand everywhere!  Like in our hair, down our shorts, up our...well, we won't go there!  But we are all having fun.  I will attach pics later!  Love to everyone!

I am sure everyone has had a day that they would like to start over.  One of those days that things just don't go the way you had planned things to go.  Today was one of those days.  But this is the thing, although Jared and I are going through a very hard time financially (just like everyone else in the world) it makes me more grateful for the things that I do have and not be upset for the things that I don't have.  There are people in the world that are grieving over the loss of their baby, or people that are sitting beside their babies sleeping in a hospital bed, or people that have lost their husband or wife due to some horrible accident.  Not me, I have 3 healthy, wonderful boys who I love so very much.  I have a husband who comes home to me every day and is there for me through thick and thin and loves me no matter what.  And I have a family who would give up anything for me to help me get out of this situation.  Although life sucks sometimes... I LOVE MY LIFE!  I would not change lives with anyone.  And every night when I go to bed I don't pray for things that I don't have, I show my gratitude for the things Heavenly Father has given me.  Life is a gift and I am grateful my Father in Heaven has given me the life he has given me.  I love you all!  Thanks for being such great friends!
