We're Back!.

I know, I have been a horrible updater. So, here is our last 2 1/2 months in review. Beware! We were very very busy. I will try and keep it short...yah right.



We had such a great time with Trevor's family in California. We of course loved the beach and Disneyland. J.J. loved hanging out with his cousins. We wore him out. We were out almost everyday from morning until midnight. We all did get sick with Strep throat and so that was miserable. Luckily it didn't really slow us down, but we all had to go on antibiotics when we got home, even Cate.

Mickey Mouse! J.J. was so excited to meet him. He went up to him and just started telling him all about his day like they were best friends. Cate could of cared less...just slept in the stroller.

Gotta have treats at Disneyland!

Cate didn't know if she liked the Ocean or not.

On the other hand, J.J. loved it!

I became a pro photographer in April. Did my first paid gig!! It was a blast and can't wait to do more and get better. Here are some pictures from that photo shoot. I have set up my professional photography blog and you can see it at Nicole Compton Photography. It will be updated within the next couple of days.


Dinosaur Park

We went to Dinosaur Park for J.J.s end of school party and they really had a good time. Cate's favorite thing is to swing and so of course I had to get pictures of it.

Here she is with Leah.

J.J. said the funniest thing the other day.

He said, "Mom, I am going to marry Olivia when I am a teenager. And we are going to live in your basement."
I replied, "I thought you were going to marry Ellie." (because that is what he told me the week before).
He said, "Nope, she's too bossy."
I laughed and replied, "So you aren't going to marry someone bossy, but you are going to get married when you are a teenager and live in my basement."
J.J. says, "Yep!"

So here's to you Olivia.

J.J. attended his preschool graduation for his class. Of course he will still have one more year until Kindergarten, but he participated in the program and got to walk the stage. I guess it is practice for next year. Sorry, just a blurry picture of this one.

Trevor ran the Ogden Marathon on May 17th!! He did an awesome job. His time was a 4:18. It amazes me that he ran that many miles. Good job Trev! I am so proud of you!!


J.J. has been playing Tee Ball this spring and he loves it! He gets a little bored when they are fielding, but he loves to bat. I think his favorite thing is when it is treat day and he can give the treats out to his teammates. Go J.J.!!


We also were able to spend the night at Primary Children's Hospital. Cate climbed up on the counter and fell off onto the tile head first. So, I decided to bring her to the doctor. After multiple x-rays, one CAT scan, one ambulance ride from McKay Dee to Primary Children's, and one night stay at the hospital, we found out that she does not have a bleed on her brain and it is only a fractured skull. To make things worse, Trevor was out of town in Boise for work. He left at Midnight and arrived at the hospital at 4:30 am. It was a very traumatic experience, even for J.J. He told some stranger at the grocery store the other day, "My dad has a hole in his heart and my sister cracked her head open." I guess we have seen the ambulance twice in the last three months. I hope it is the last, but I know it probably won't be. Now we just need to make sure that she doesn't hit her head again for the next six weeks while her fracture is healing. Don't they know that I am already a worrier? We love you Cate!

Are we to June yet???


10 YEARS!!!!!!

June 11th was Trevor and I's 10 year anniversary! I still can't believe it. We spontaneously decided to go to Paris. Yes, France not Texas!! It was amazing! I will blog about this later because it deserves a post of it's own. Trevor, thanks for the 10 years. We may be balder, fatter, wrinklier, but I love you even more today!

Here we are atop the Eiffel Tower.

We just went and spent the weekend in Island Park with my family. This is one of my most favorite things to do is go to my families cabin and relax with the family. There are 20 in my family now! 4 of us married with 2 kids each, plus the 2 that aren't married and my Mom and Dad. Lots of fishing, card games, rain, and smores. We also went to Mesa Falls. We drove the 1/2 marathon route that I am planning on doing in August. I think I need to practice some hills. Oi! Here is our fish picture from this weekend. I think it is one of the only ones I took. They had great luck fishing. I think the limit is 2 a day over 16", and the brought home the limit both days. I think there were about 12 fish in all.
