Summer 2009... so far!

I know it's been a long while since I've posted, but I haven't forgotten about blogging. I actually miss it. I just have no internet at home and that makes posting a little bit harder. Clark and I have been doing a lot of fun things this summer. I don't have much time now, but here's a quick synopsis of what's been going on since our trip to New York.
Back in June we went to Kelly Clarkson! It was cold and rainy, but still really fun. I love Kelly!
We headed down to St. George for a weekend with the family and got to see two shows at Tuachan: Annie and Footloose! And guess who was the main character in Footloose... Thayne Jasperson from last season So You Think You Can Dance. I have been watching Thayne dance for years so it was really fun to meet him. I think I have a knack for finding and taking pictures with cast members of SYTYCD.This was me a couple weeks ago. I need to be better about taking prego pictures, but here I am at 26 weeks. I'm now 28 and feel a lot bigger. Here's my friend, Natalie, and I at the American Idol concert. We met up with my family for dinner and had a lot of fun at the concert. Adam is a much better performer than Kris, and I was glad I got to see Allison sing. She's so good.I've also been able to see my high school girlfriends more than normal lately. We've had several get-togethers, like this BBQ at Lisa's and it's so fun to see everyone and their kids. I'll be joining that mom group soon and I'm kind of excited to have a little one to chase around the pool, instead of just sitting and watching. Last week was a lot of fun and a lot of hard work. Clark and I, mostly I, babysat my friends' 3 kids for 5 days. Talk about being thrown into motherhood. Although I was exhausted every day, I still had so much fun with these kids and learned a lot about how much work goes in to just packing up the car to leave for a few hours. The two in the picture are Wyatt and Rylie on the day we went to the parade float preview at the Expo Center. They got their faces painted and got balloon animals. Who you don't see in the picture is little 8-month old Lindyn. She is such a good baby and it was so cute watching Clark play and take of her. He's going to be a great dad. And this week Clark and I were staying at his parents house to take care of the dogs. We invited my little sis, Alli, over last night to watch So You Think You Can Dance and have a delicious dinner. We then made a rainbow cake, my favorite, for dessert. Alli frosted and sprinkled it and was pretty proud of herself, if you can't tell.
I've made it to the pool several times and have been working too, but this summer has been pretty fun so far. We've also been dealing with trying to buy a home. The first one didn't work out, but we are currently under contract with our second choice. We're supposed to close in a few weeks so hopefully this all works out and we'll be in our first home soon!
