At the end of June, Karsyn and I went to Oklahoma to visit my mom’s grandparents. It was a blast! Here are some pictures from our trip!

June 25: We left that afternoon, about 5 and drove to Vegas. We stayed with my dad’s sister that night.

June 26: Woke up at 3:30 AM to be at the airport by 4 AM. Boarded the plane about 6 AM.


Luckily, we got the window seat. Unfortunately, we had to sit by a guy that had REALLY stinky breath and slept with his mouth open the whole way. It was about 2.5 hours. We had a layover in Dallas. I was so scared that I wouldn’t make it to my connecting flight because it was the first time I had travelled “alone” before, plus the first time with my child. I barely made it to the train that took me to the correct gate. Right as we got on the train, the doors closed. From Dallas, it was only a 30 minute flight. Once we landed, my grandma came in and found us! Karsyn was NOT happy to see them. He SCREAMED and cried. Poor guy. Must’ve thought they were going to take him without me. #mommasboyalert. We went to eat at Cheddar’s. Holy smokes. That place is amazing! Then we drove to their house, which is about 1.5 hours away from the airport.

June 27: We went to lunch and just hung out.


June 28: Went to lunch in Carrie Underwood’s hometown! Karsyn helped grandma sweep the front porch, then we helped Papa spray weeds, then went for a ride in the gator {which my grandma WON a couple years back!}.




July 3: Went shopping in Muskogee!

July 4: Hung out with the family and lit fireworks. Karsyn had a blast. He just HAD to be RIGHTTHERE when Hunter was lighting the fireworks. #pyro


After we lit a few small ones, we went up above the lake and watched the town’s fireworks. Then came home and lit more, including one titled “Redneck Blaster” which was a rather large firework that tipped over while shooting and landed within INCHES of my foot.

July 5: Lit the leftover sparklers.


July 6: Went to Eufaula Lake and had ourselves a grand ol’ time!


July 8: My grandma’s dad passed, so while she had to leave to help her brother figure out the funeral arrangements. We stayed and helped Papa water flowers and check the mail.


That night, when grandma came back, we went out to dinner at a place on the lake. After we were done, we fed the ducks.



July 9: Last night in OK. Karsyn was finally getting used to grandma and Papa. Him and grandma went on a walk around the yard and found some locus shells.


July 10: Wasting some time before we had to be at the airport.


I am so thankful for the 2 weeks that we got to spend out there with our awesome grandparents. It’s a trip I won’t forget. Unfortunately, I know Karsyn won’t remember it, except for the pictures, so it’s a good thing I took a lot. I am so blessed to have such a great family.

Have you been to Oklahoma before? What did you do for fun?




I’m Back!

Holy cow!

SOOO much has changed and gone on since I last posted.

Let’s start from the beginning.

I went to counseling, as you may have read in my last post. I went a few times and it was awesome. I am go glad I did!!

I went to Oklahoma for a vacation/get away. Just Karsyn and I! We stayed with my moms grandparents for two weeks. It was a lot of fun. I will share some pix in another post, as well as traveling with a toddler tips!

While I was gone, I found out that Kade got a new job. In Vernal. Which is 4 hours away from where we lived.

When I got back, we had 1 day to get everything packed, cleaned and out of our apartment. Well, Kade had been packing while I was gone, but I didn’t get back until the 11th and we had to be out of there by the 12th.

That weekend we went to Brian Head for a family reunion with Kade’s family. We stayed at a super amazing cabin. It was HUUUGE! It had 3 floors and 2 game rooms!

The following Monday, we went to Vernal to look for a place to live. Found one {the last one we looked at!}, had to go back home because she said the application process would take a few DAYS, rather than minutes/hour like the other ladies had said.

Got the call on Tuesday night that we were accepted, so we left Wednesday morning and have been here in Vernal since.

Kade started his new job on the 22nd. It is a great job. He is working inside now, which is a HUGE change for him. He has to wear a uniform. Another HUGE change. He has an office. Yep, you guessed it, HUGE change! He works on the computer a lot of the time. Uh huh, HUGE change. Overall, he likes it and it is a great job. A raise and full benefits are super nice, too! (;

Fast forward to this past weekend – My mom came up and dropped one of my brothers and sister off. They stayed until yesterday. It was so nice to have them here and I am really sad that they are gone.

Other things that have changed include my whole blogger “office”, like as I’m writing this I’m noticing all sorts of changes. Posh came out with 42 NEW products!!

I think that’s all?

I’ll be back tomorrow!
