The past 2 weeks were super busy for our family. 
I will start with Wednesday the 16th... I got a phone call from Deveren that afternoon and he told me that our roll cage business was doing so well that he needed to come home to help make them because Tony, the guy who builds them for us, couldn't make them fast enough and was getting behind.
He told me he was planning on coming home late saturday night.  
More about that later... 

On Thursday I had a girls night with Tal and Bree. We had so much fun talking and eating pickle dip!


On Saturday my Grandma came over to babysit the kids so I could go take Talyn and Colby's engagement pictures. My Mom came also to help out... We drove up to Park City and went to a couple of really cool destinations.  

After we had been up in Park City for a few hours I got a text message that said:
Can't wait for you to get home... Surprise!!

He came home 8 hours earlier than he told me!! It was the best surprise...

After taking the engagement pictures we went to a super yummy mexican place in Park City. 

Talyn wore these amazing 4 inch wedges and she was about 6' 3" tall in them. 
It was so funny 

 Deveren was super busy pretty much the entire time he was home. He worked everyday from five or six in the morning until about one or 2 in the morning. Crazy boy. We did get to spend all day on Sunday with him which was much needed :) 
I got to go on a hot date with him and our friends the Kers on Thursday night. We went to Buffalo Wild Wings (like we always do)
Side note: I don't know why but my eyes always go freaky when the flash from my phone goes off.  

 Bailie graduated from Preschool!
They had a graduation program which was so adorable. She did such a great job. Miss Karli told me that all of the kids were supposed to sit in alphabetical order for the program but Bailie and Desmond wanted to sit next to each other. So they did. Poor Claire that was supposed to sit in between them got the boot.

We have LOVED having Miss Karli as Bailie's teacher. I wanted to do something for her that was meaningful.... So here's what I (Pinterest) came up with 

Bailie made her a card. The inside of the card said "You are the best teacher Love Bailie". She drew a picture of the two of them.... It was so adorable!

Graduation Day

So sweet

After graduation we took Bailie to Cafe Rio for lunch.
(Free Quesadilla... Can't beat it)

We had to stop by the store and so of course we had to have an ice cream :)

On Sunday we again got to relax and spend the day with Dev (a.k.a. watching him sleep) before he left early Monday morning.

I am so happy that we got to see him and spend time with him! And I'm so glad that he got all caught up on roll cage stuff!
Monday morning (Memorial Day), we woke up very early and took Dev to the airport. It was so so sad to see him go but grateful he got to come back for a bit!

That afternoon we went to the Ker's house for a BBQ. 
I am so grateful for Ryan and Rachel! They are great friends and have looked out for me and the kids since Dev has been gone. Thank you guys so much!!!!!

Delightra, Rachel and Me (with a lazy eye apparently)

On Monday night we went up to our friends Cy and Whitney's house to watch the Bachelorette and have a sleepover!

Remi and Bailie had so much fun playing together. Neither one of them have ever had a sleepover before so when it was time for bed it got interesting. They talked and talked. Remi was too excited to go to sleep so we kept hearing Remi talk and then Bailie say "Rem, can you please stop talking so I can go to sleep?"
It was funny. 
After about an hour, we thought it would be best to have them sleep separately....

 Since the weather has been really nice lately we have been living outside. 
I love summer time and I am looking forward to staying home to enjoy my family and friends!!!
