What The Fat Kid???

This week was a good week you could say.   I started my week off by downloading the new Keith Urban song that I love! Everyone should get it, it's called "Put you in a song"  It's great! I may or may not be listening to it as we speak on repeat. 
Next I got an email from my brother that is on his mission in the Dominican Republic on Monday afternoon saying that he had to go to the hospital because he had to have a blood test because he had yet another parasite.  This is his second one and he has only been out for 8 months! Poor guy! But he said that hospital was terrible, there was a giant dead cockroach in the middle of the waiting room and there was blood on the walls and the ceilings.  I can't imagine having to be in a place like that because I'm sick and needing help.  I feel like I would get more sick by being in there.  I miss my brother so much! The first few months of his mission went really really slow, but now I can't beleive he has been gone for 8 months.

It makes it easier when I get his emails and he sounds so happy and so different and grown up.  I am so proud of him, it's so crazy to me that he has made such an impact on our little nephews.  Especially little Jack, when he says his prayers he always says to bless "Mats" (Max) on his mission.  They know where he is and they know why he is there.  He is such an amazing person and an even more amazing brother! Love him!

Speaking of Family, my cute sister in law got engaged this week!! I'm so excited for her and Cade.  Weddings are so fun and it's even more fun to have it be someone in your family! So we are heading up for her wedding that is on November 18.  And it happens to work out that my cousin Kirsti is getting married November 20 so I get two weddings in two days! I'm so excited for both of them! Congrats!

Since we have so many things going on within like the next two months that we are going back to Utah for I of course had to ask for time off.  I started my job in August so I was really nervous to ask for it off.  But I got the courage up to ask for the time off for Thanksgiving and Christmas and my boss let me have less then a week for both of them.  I was bugged but whatever, I can't really do anything about it.  But then when I was needing time off for the weddings it wasn't as easy.  She wouldn't let me get the time off, for my own SISTER IN LAWS wedding.  Unbelievable.  So Ryan and I talked and we decided that I needed to quit if she really wasn't going to let me have the time off.  Well consider me unemployed.  I am back to being without a job.  It kind of is nice but at the same time I know I'm going to get bored.  But atleast I can do whatever I want for like the next three months! Woohoo!
Finally, you are probably wondering what the title of this post has to do with anything.  Well I will tell you.  Tonight since it was my sisters Sunday to do dinner Ryan and I went over and ate with the cute little fam.  Well my nephew Jack is starting soccer on Tuesday, so I told him to go and get his shoes on so we could go out back and play soccer. Me, Kindi, Jack and little Colty went out and played soccer, it was so cute.  Jack is going to be the Star Player I can tell already. Ha ha, anyway after Adam and Ryan were done doing the dishes :) they came out and were playing around too.  We got bored of that and I was jumping on the tramp with Colty and Jack wanted Ryan to jump with him too.  So Ryan started to jump while holding Jack and all of a sudden tramp springs were flying everywhere. Ryan and Jack were suddenly what I thought sitting down... but when I looked closer Ryans entire leg had gone through the tramp!! It was so hilarious! Jack was terrified! He had no idea what had just happen and ran out of Ryan's arms and jumped off what remained of the tramp.  I was laughing so hard, I can't help laughing at that type of stuff, and when I say laugh I mean bent over laughing so hard you can't hear it.  Kindi was so concerned about Ryan, she kept asking if he was okay and me being the good wife I am yelled out "where is the camera??" I had to get this on film! So you can all thank me for these pictures! I love them! So when I was taking the pictures Ryan goes "What the fat kid? Sorry I've gained so much weight that I can break a tramp now." Ha ha I love him! He keeps me so entertained!
Sitting Ryan...?

Leg Through the tramp!

 The damage.

Lastly, I'm considering doing a triathlon with some friends here, I don't have a bike, does anyone know if I need a road bike or a moutain bike or does it really matter? I have no idea what I'm doing.. Help.


  1. hahaha! The pictures are priceless! You have such a cute family Jill. I love hearing about them all. I also love our runs in the mornings! About the bike thing...I've heard you can use either; especially for the triathalon I'm doing. I do know it's harder to go fast with a mountain bike but is totally doable at the same time. I think it's just what you want to do! I really hope you do the triathalon with me!!!

  2. Sooo how come you are going to be bored for only 3 months and not more? Big plans in the next three months? And I am sad you can't stay longer I hope we'll get to see you while you are here!
