Monday morning Chase and I got up and went on a bike ride.While on the ride I decided I wanted to go on vacation with out the kids.We came home and called our family and found somewhere for all of them to stay.Chase,Sol and Gid went to Nanny and Papa's house.Hannah and Sim went to Aunt Tamara and uncle Jason's house.Last but not least Ben went to Aunt Jessica's house.We are so thankful that we have family members that would take our children. All of the kids had lots of fun with all of there cousins.We started packing around 10;00a.m. and we left our house around 12:00 to drop off all of our kids and be on our way.We decided to go to Durango Colorado. I had gone there as a kid and it was one of my favorite vacations and I had not been back since.It was beautiful.There is so much stuff to do there, River rafting,hiking,mountain biking,Ride the train,Shopping,Hot springs, Alpine slide at Telluride Ski resort and a lot of little towns and things to sight see.It is only about a seven hour drive so it is not that bad.We took the baby with us,because he was still nursing but he quit while we were on the trip.It always makes me sad when they decide to quit.Any way, there were some things we couldn't do because we had the baby but we still had a lot of fun.We decided we need to bring our kids back ,they would love it.The weather was also beautiful,the high was about 80 and it would get down to 60 at night and every afternoon it would storm and rain.It was a fun relaxing time.

Last night Hannah and I decided to do a girls only slumber party. Chase is out of town in Georgia and little Chase was spending the night at his cousin Seth's house.We put the little boys to bed, and made our selves a special dinner.After dinner we gave our selves pedicures and did our hair and makeup.It was a lot of fun.We then made chocolate brownie cookies one of our favorites.Then we watched Penelope, it was a really cute movie.It was a very fun relaxing night.

We went on a short vacation last weekend. We left Friday morning around 4:00 a.m. and arrived at Newport Beach around 11:00 a.m. We spent the day at the beach and the kids had a lot of fun. We stayed at Chases' Uncle Galen and Aunt Heidi's' House in Aliso Veigo.They are so fun to stay with. They really make you feel welcome and are so nice to all of the kids.My kids love them. We always have so much fun with there family.We got up early Saturday morning and went to San Clemente beach. It was really pretty but the waves were to rough for the little kids. Right when we got there Giddy ran right out to the water and a wave took him down and he was scared of it the rest of the day.The older kids boogie boarded and had a lot of fun.Saturday night Chase and I went to Laguna beach to take a walk it was nice and relaxing.Sunday we went to church with them. Galen is in the Bishopric of the singles ward so we went there. It was so quite.You could here if any of us moved.In the evening we went back to Laguna for a walk and to search for sand crabs.Chases' cousins and there kids came it was a lot of fun.That night little Chase got a really bad fever and got really sick so we had to come early,but we still had a lot of fun and did a lot in a short time.Ammon was a pill the whole time,he cried so much he lost his voice.I had to constantly walk him up and down the beach.It was not the most relaxing vacation.
