I'm not usually what you would call a "reader". However, I know now why people are OBSESSED with these books. So, so good. I started it Friday and finished it this morning. I know there are some that have been faster but that is amazingly fast for me. There is only one other book I've ever done that with, "The Gable Faces East" by Anita Stansfield, I finished that one in 2 days, literally locking myself in my room. Thanks for letting me borrow it Mom! I don't think I can wait till I see you again to get the second one. I might just run to Costco this afternoon and get it, I don't think I can even wait until tomorrow. I now feel like I am again part of society, like I can have a conversation with other girls about Edward and actually know what they're talking about. haha.

We spent this last weekend at Lake Powell. I'm pretty sure that place is what heaven is like. It's so beautiful there. For sure the way to go to Lake Powell is renting a houseboat but we camped and that was really fun too. We went with my brother Kyler and his friend Heather. The water wasn't great, it was pretty windy on Saturday. We had good water in the morning but it was choppy the rest of the day so we spent the day exploring the canyons, jumping and swimming. We were all very sad to leave. We took like a thousand pictures; here are a little more than a few....
On the way there and only about 20 miles or less away, we almost ran out of gas :) Woops. This is at the gas station that saved our lives by popping up just over the hill we didn't think we would make it over. There was a lot of praying happening in the car.
Heather and Kyler
Boston loved playing in the water
He loves his Uncle Kyler
And his Momma
Kyler and Heather got up behind the boat at the same time. This was so fun to watch. I know it looks like Kyler is going to hit her in the head with his board but he's not. His rope was quite a bit longer than hers so it wasn't quite as dangerous as it looks. :)
If you're one of the moms or dads or grandmas or anyone that wants to see all of the pictures, they are on the Mac Gallery ;)
Also, HAPPY 6 MONTHS to my baby yesterday!! I can't believe he is already half a year old! He has been such a fun addition to our little family. We love him so so much!
One last thing... I took the first Twilight book with me this weekend. I really was starting to feel left out because every female I know has read that book, well all of the books so I still have some catching up to do. Anyway, I am hooked and in love with Edward. I'm about half way through and probably would've finished the whole thing this weekend if Brett hadn't said "Don't read all weekend, that's boring" every time I picked it up. He tried to hide it from me in the boat so I couldn't read it on the way home, he failed. :)

So I totally want to start mom and me swim lessons with Boston. Even though it kind of scares me that they just push your baby underwater and somehow they survive....If anyone has done them already (or wants to join me) and knows of a really good place with good/nice teachers let me know! :)

Last week was my sister-in-law Krista's birthday and that day marks the start of a new tradition for birthdays. We all went to lunch and got pedicures. It was so fun that we decided we NEEDED to do it for every birthday! Yay! I'm so glad that I am guaranteed a pedicure and good company of course almost every month of the year! P.s. Glitter toes are awesome, if you haven't tried them yet you should

Me and JoDee
I've been meaning to post these pictures for awhile. They have nothing to do with food or pedicures but they are fun pictures. Not last week but the week before we put Boston in the lake for the first time. I was a little hesitant to do this, not because it was cold, not because I thought he would drown or cry but because we were at Utah lake where you can't see through the water AT ALL, where your spray is often times BRIGHT GREEN, and you have to shut your eyes and close your mouth when you jump in. You might be wondering why we even go there... it's just because it is close and warm. :) Anyway, he LOVED it. He was a little shocked at first but seconds later was sqealing and kicking. It's almost time for me to start mom and me swim lessons. I think I have a water baby.
I love his life jacket. I think he looks like Spongebob. haha

SO, awhile ago I told a lie (on accident) and said that I added a bunch of pictures to our Mac Gallery so that our families could download them. Then I figured out that I couldn't do it with my computer; I had to do it with Brett's because his has our account on it. ANYWAY... I finally did actually put them on there. There are a lot of good family pictures and cute pictures of all the babies Boston, Sadie and Nash. The folders I added are titled "Weekend in Boise" and "New pictures- added 9/7", and the link is on the right side of this page. So you should be able to download any that you please to your own computers. :) Loves.

Last Thursday we went up to Olympic park to watch my brother go off ski jumps into a pool. I didn't even know this existed. It was pretty cool. I don't know if I could ever do it because I'm a wuss but it was really fun to watch.
Friday we had a Sundberg family reunion up at Heber Valley Camp. We camped in style in bunkhouse/cabins but didn't sleep a wink. For once I think Boston slept more than we did. Do they make king size air mattresses? We played games, made smores, and ate way too much food. It was a short but fun getaway.
Saturday we went to the BYU game. I was so tired from not sleeping the night before that I barely remember the game, in fact I actually fell asleep during it a couple of times, but I do know they won. :) It was fun to take Boston, and of course we outfitted him in BYU gear.
