Zoo Fun

Today we went to the Zoo with our friends the Oldroyd's and had a great time other then is was hotter then freak, wow I was just dying and by the time we left I was just a fat preggie ball of sweat. The boys had a really good time just running all over the place and talking to the animals. I think Jordan's favorite the the gorilla and turtle(wow so different) and Ryken was just worried about not getting too close to the rhino(he kept saying I no wanna play with him mom). Here are a few pic of our fun filled day.

Bad Luck :(

It's official I have extremely bad luck with motorcycles, back in June while I was in Georgia I was trying to take a picture with some Harley dudes and stood too close to the freaking bike and burned my leg pretty good(I eventually had to go to instacare). So with that all healed up and leaving a nice ugly scare I freaking did it again and it's on the same leg right next to the first burn, seriously what the freak? I now have a major ugly leg and will stay away from Harley's/any motorcycles.

It's a????

Today I had my monthly checkup and decided that I would beg my doc to take a peak so that I didn't have to come back on Friday for my ultrasound, well he said that he wouldn't be able to tell with his machine but he said I don't see why they can't do it now, so he called down to ultrasound and there happening to be a open spot. So we all headed downstairs and the whole time I'm thinking I would really like a girl but don't full yourself you know that it's going to be a boy, so we get all set up ( the tech lady was so awesome and sweet) and I'm totally looking for those two lines but what do we see instead?? yep you got it it's a BOY!!!!! all I could do was smile and laugh. We are very excited to add another little precious baby boy to our family but he may not have a name for awhile, like I said feel free to pass along any boy names.

Motley Crue

Danny scored 6 free tickets to the Motley Crue concert so we went with his dad and girlfriend and the Oldroyds and was able to sit the the suite section for Usana. I don't really listen to Motley Crue but I thought what the heck the tickets were free and it was kinda a date night. Over all the concert was so so, it was the loudest concert I have ever been to and that is the most people I have seen at the Usana Amphitheater ever!! Wow there are all kinds of people that were there, we even saw a ton of kids like a 7 year old girl and bunch of 12 year old boys all the way to grannies totally rocking it out. I love to people watch so I took a couple pictures of some random people.

Bun in the oven!!!

We are very excited to announce we are expecting baby #3(due Jan 19th), some of you may have heard the news through the grapevine and other have not so I finally decided to blog about it. So far so good, things have gone good with the pregnancy other then I have had really bad headeaches, zero energy and seriously have to take a three hour nap every day(my boys are wonderful at napping with me). I have been lucky about not getting sick with my first two pregnancies and hope this one will continue to be the same. For those that know me well know that I can't ever wait for anything so we are planning on doing a ultrasound gender check(instead of the regular one at like 20 weeks) our appointment is August 1st and I can't even tell you how excited we are.

Again if you know us and the Whitney family then you know that there are NO girls in the family, Dan's dad came from a family of 4 boys and Dan's dad had three boys and we have 2 boys and Dan's brother Nick has 2 boys so do you see where I'm going with this? seriously where are the girls? Don't get me wrong I will be more then happy with either gender and a healthy baby but I'm keeping my fingers crossed. The funny thing is I have been looking for girls bed sets but looking at boy names, and so far I have not found any boy names at all and I say to myself is this a sign? ha ha!!

Jordan and Ryken are somewhat excited about the addition to the family, Jordan has told me that we are having a boy and a girl and naming them Gisele and Edward(ok! they watch Enchanted a little too much). I think we would be in big trouble if I have twins YIKES!!. So now we are in the process of making changes in our life's and I'm really excited about that.

1. We just purchased a 2008 Toyota Highlander( Dan is way more excited about this vehicle and wants to pimp it out, but I'm the one that will be driving it).
2. We are starting the process of house hunting.
Pros: Yeah a house!! finally more more to run around and have the kids play in the back yard, means I get to totally go house shopping when my favorite day of the year come Swiss days!!!, excited about decorating the baby's room. etc...
Cons: We will be really sad to leave these apartments since Dan's mom, brother and sister in law and cousins live right next to us(and the Park's), and I'm sad to leave the ward because we have a lot of awesome friends here.

Well enough information about our life's we will keep you posted when we find out the sex of our baby and other info along the way.

PS. If anyone have boys names please feel free to throw them my way :)

Man Leaves Child In Car While Watching Batman Film

Police arrested a man suspected of leaving a 2-year-old boy in his car while watching The Dark Knight at a South Salt Lake theater.South Salt Lake Police said the man, identified as David Farnham, went to the movie at 11:30 p.m. on Saturday at the Century Theater at 107 East 3300 South. He reportedly left the child in the car with the windows rolled up.The child was not noticed until 1:22 a.m. when a person walking by heard the child crying inside the vehicle.

Police arrested a man suspected of leaving his 2-year-old child in a car while he watched The Dark Knight. (KUTV) The passerby called 9-1-1 and police and paramedics arrived at the theater. The child was rescued from the car. Police said the temperature inside the vehicle was about 87 degrees.Police entered the theater, arrested Farnham and booked him into the Salt Lake County Jail on suspected felony child abuse.The boy was treated and released at the scene and was given to his mother. He is in good condition.

***I'm sure most of you have heard this story on the news, how can someone honestly leave there own child in a car? There has been story after story about a parent leaving there kid in car and then dying. I have always said you never know how things could happen unless you are in that situation but seriously how could you forget about your child and leave them in a car only to come back to more then likely that they have died, how do you forget when you are the one that puts them in the car and I'm sure you talk to them and can hear them play but then you get out and forget about them.

This topic was talked about a few weeks ago on Good Morning America and they were giving ideas on ways NOT to forget about your child, they suggested to put your purse on the floor in the back seat or to put a teddy bear in the front seat next to you so that it reminds you that your child is in the car seat, are you freaking kidding me!! why can you remember your purse but not you child . I think that is so sad that it comes down to a purse and teddy bear, your live with your child day and night, take care of them, feed them, bath them, read to them etc.. but you can forget about them and leave them in your car. My heart breaks every time I hear about these stories and for the most part the child dies but luckily this child survived.

Friday evening a bunch of us friends got together (Oldroyd's, Fitch's, Starley's Park's and Anderson's) all drove up to Millcreek canyon and had a yummy KFC dinner together and just hung out and let all of the kids go wild. The weather was perfect so the dad's and kids went on a little hike while the mommies chilled and talked, I think all together there was 14 kids just going crazy but they all did really well and stayed around the camp area. I love that we can just head up the canyon for a few hours and have a good time. :)

Kendra's Shower

My lil sis is due with a baby girl Kylee in a month and so we had a family/friends baby shower for her. The turn out was great and Kendra got a ton of good stuff to get her started. Here are a few pictures.

Happy Birthday!!

I just want to wish my big sister a Happy Birthday. Chandra is the best sister ever, she is an amazing mother, sister, friend and one hot momma. I can only thing of the best memories that's if I listed them I would be up all night long, but one that really sticks out is Lake Powell '03 Crystol, Bev and I were chilling on the beach when all of the sudden her comes Chandra on a sea doo(with Missy on the back) coming full speed, Crystol and I look at each other and said is she going to stop? then we realized she wasn't so we take off but Bev just stayed put with a beer in one hand and a smoke in the other and was like um whatever. Anyway Chandra totally was hitting the gas instead of the brake and came straight for us, if I could have taken a picture of Chandra and Missy face's is would have been awesome, so Chandra tries to stop like she's freaking Fred Flinstone (with her heels) and ends up totally docking the sea doo on the beach, it was totally priceless. I love how she has such a chill personality and is always fun to be around. We had so much fun when she was out here and I miss her so much.

Bear Lake Rocks!!

The boys and I rode to Bear Lake with G-ma Ann and Todd on Thursday(Dad meet us Friday evening). We stayed in a family cabin with about 30 family members and had a great time. We arrived Thursday afternoon and went straight to the beach and had a great time, the boys couldn't get enough of the water and had fun building sand castles. Mommy was able to relax on the beach with a great book while G-ma and Todd took the boys out on the boat for a fun ride and then came back and just played around on the boat for another hour, at night the whole gang got together and played games, watched movies and ran all over the place. All in all it was a fabulous vacation but are glad to be home.

My nasty sun burn ouch!!

New purchase

Go fatty go!!! yeah I finally broke down and got a bike, I'm going to ride it in the mornings before Dan goes to work and the boys wake up and if I really have energy I will do it at night. I'm going to ride the track that's around the Ivory home across the street from us which I have been told is 2 miles. Wish me luck and if you haven't heard from me in awhile I'm probably dead on my couch and trying to recover.



Wow!! I feel like I have been going non stop since June. It started with my trip to Georgia (June 5th-10th) to visit my sister and my two nephews then I came home for about 6 days only to leave again for girls camp (June 16th-20th) and that just wore me out so I vegged that next week and then my sister and nephews came out here for a visit (June 26th- July 6th). They stayed with my dad who lives like three minutes away so that was nice, well just two days after they arrived my dad bought a new house in "BFE" Magna, so we were busy packing and helping him move.

I was a little afraid I would have a hard time keeping my sister and boys entertained but luckily my dad took the week off to help keep them busy. So basically we did something everyday all day and it was so much fun. We went to Lagoon, Classic skating, parks, hiking, swmimming. My mom has a little party at her house with our aunts, uncles and cousins for my sister and also because my little bro was home for a visit for two weeks. Jordan and Ryken could not get enough of there cousins, all they wanted to do was wrestle 24/7 so it was hard for them went it was time for them to go home to Georgia.

It was really nice to have my brother home for a couple weeks, he left July 4th for Manhattan, Kansas and will be staying there until he leaves for Iraq in October. Luckily he will get to come home and visit before that happens. I know I have said this before but we are so very proud of him and love him so much.

Just when things seem to get back to normal I totally forgot that we are going to Bear lake this week, holy cow!! I'm really excited my boys really like Bear Lake and will have a blast with all there cousins. Well I'm going to post some randoms pictures of all that have been going on.

Today we got a call to come and visit Jordan's preschool so I took Ryken to play at his cousins house so it could just be all about Jordan. Jordan was SO excited he was freaking out running around saying that he needed to get his book bag ready for school, I tried to tell him that we were going to fill out papers and not "start" school yet. Anyways he put some previous school papers we had in his book bag along with some new underwear(ya he's weird) and was all set to go. Right when we got there the teacher asked what desk he wanted to sit at, he picked the green table took his book bag out and got out his papers that he brought and sat right down(it was so cute) the teacher just had me fill out information while Jordan colored and then Jordan got to meet his teacher Mrs. Jane and was sent home with a folder of papers, which by the way will not leave his sight for anything and is sleeping with it right now. Jordan will start preschool in September and goes Tues, Thurs 9:00-11:30.


Jordan 3, Ryken 2, Landon 9 and Kobe 3

My sister Chandra and her boys Landon and Kobe are out here for a visit and one of the must do's while they are here is to get a cousin picture, this is the first picture of all of them together ever!! I thought it turned out really cute and was surprised it went as well as it did.

311/Snoop Dog

Snoop Dog(what the freak is he wearing???)

Brooke and I
Dan and I
SA Martinez

Nick Hexum

So last night a bunch of us went to the 311 concert ( Dan and I, his brothers Nick and Jer and friends Brooke and Jesse) we were lucky to get first row from the mosh pit area and it was amazing. First of all I'm not like a huge fan of Snoop Dog ( I don't own any of his cd's) but I was really excited to see him in concert and let me tell you he was sweet!!!! luckily he played a couple songs that I recognized.

Dan and I have gone to 311 every year since we have been together and every year it gets better and better, 311 can never disappointed. My favorite is SA Martinez that boy can dance like nobody's business but if anyone else danced like him they would look like a huge idiot. So as I was saying we have awesome tickets and therefore were right next to where you enter the mosh pit and let me tell you it was very entertaining, idiots would act like they had a ticket and look in there wallet but would just pull money out to see if they would let them in, I saw at least 3 guys jump from our row into the pit and just take off in the crowd before they got caught. All in all it was a sweet and very entertaining concert.
