Summer 2013

We have had a crazy busy summer.  In June we went to Utah and saw Todd's Grandma Jenks.  In July we went to Nevada to see my aunt and her family and California to see Todd's dad and in August we went spent time camping and boating.  The kids did swimming lessons and Rylan tried his hand at t-ball.  The summer has flown by and now we are back to school.  Kadee is in 2nd grade and Rylan is in kindergarten and Sawyer is growing like a weed!

Wow! I forgot I had a blog. Oops!

Okay so it has been over a year now from my last blog.  So much has happened I don't even remember the half of it.  And when I try and think about it I come up empty and end up thinking that, nope not really much has happened.  Last year in March 2012 we went to Disneyland and that was fun.  Oh yeah, and I had a baby in December 2012! Yea for new babies!!

Sawyer Eldon Jenks was born on December 6, 2012.  He weighed 8 lbs and was 20 inches.  Labor this time around sucked.  My epidural didn't take so for the most part it was not fun.  But in the end he is totally worth all the pain to get him here!  Oh, and in case you were wondering, kidney stones do hurt more then labor.

 My 3 kids!  Ry is a little to happy about having a little brother and is a LOT of help.  Almost to much help!

So now days, almost 3 months old Sawyer is doing great!  He is growing like a weed!  At his 2 month appointment me was 12.9 lbs and 23 inches long!  Okay, I really think the hospital did a crappy job when they measured him cause 3 inches in 2 months?

Virginia City Montana

For our 7 year anniversary Todd and I went to Virginia City Montana. Its a ghost town/tourist trap. We have been through Virginia City a couple times, one being on our honey moon, and I have always wanted to stay in the Fairweather Inn. The Fairweather Inn was built in 1864 when Virginia City boomed as a gold mining town. The Inn has 17 rooms and we were in room 17 right by the balcony. Only 5 of the rooms have bathrooms in them and we were lucky to get one with a bathroom (Okay not really, I called and made reservations). The Fairweather Inn is said to be haunted but we didn't experiences anything paranormal.
This is the back of the Fairweather Inn. The lonely window on the end is the window to room 10, said to be the most haunted room in the Inn. Nothing tragic happened in this room it was just the old owners favorite room and she is said to haunt it.
On Friday night we went on a ghost tour of the town. We learned a lot of cool history of the town. I took picture of most of the haunted building in the town but writing about them all would make for a long post. But I did have to post a picture of room 10. Funny story, earlier before we went on the ghost tour we were out on the balcony and started talking with another guest staying in the Inn. We started talking about the history of the Inn and found out that he was the lucky one staying in room 10. He joined us on the ghost tour. The next morning we asked him how his night was, he said that it took him about 2 hours to unwind but when he finally did he had a uneventful night.
Happy Anniversary Todd!!
