And it just gets better...

Some fun things that happened today are: Jared turned 1 decade old. The big 10. He is pretty excited to be ten. Jared is a really great boy and I am lucky to be his mom. He got his own fishing pole today and we even went fishing. We picked up one of his friends and went to Midway. As soon as Jared got a good cast in there was a fish on his line. He is the only person that caught a fish the whole time we were there. This is including the 20 other people trying their luck.

After fishing, Jared chose to have fish for lunch. Seth cooked the fish and I made peanut butter sandwiches. Jared and Ellis are the only kids that were brave enough to even try the fish. The whole time they were telling Seth how delicious the fish was.

We did our final walk through the house at 1:30 today and then we headed back to our condo and signed our closing papers! I cannot tell you how happy I am going to be to pull weeds in our new yard. The kids were so happy to run around the house, yelling the whole time. I think I am going to be glad to have a yard for many reasons. =)

We ended with a celebration in West Jordan. We dropped the kids off with Seth's parents and took some much needed time for ourselves. It is nice to be alone with Seth after being crammed into the condo (with an overprotective mother who won't let her kids play outside). Seriously, when did parking lots become playgrounds?

When we got back to pick up the kids, Aunt Elisa was babysitting and our kids begged us to leave and come back in a little while. Elisa is way too much fun!

I cannot wait to start working on this house.

Congrats to Jared on the fishing skills, the 10 years of life and on actually eating his catch! How wonderful to be able to be in a house again soon!
