Hansen Family Update

We have had one crazy summer so far! We have been busy with family reunions and camp outs. Of course I didn't bring the camera to any of those events. We have had so much fun seeing family and spending time with the people that mean the most to us.

It's official as of next week: I will no longer be a crazy babysitting insane lady. I will be done with that chapter of my life. Can I get a "Whup whup!" Something that was once a blessing to our family financially has began to take a miserable toll on us all. I am so glad to have a wonderful husband who is willing to work more overtime to earn the money that we were making babysitting. He is amazing and values me and my sanity. He loves saying "Happy Wife, Happy Life." Ain't it true!

Part of the reason why I was not handling babysitting anymore is because James switched to a day shift and he is gone all day. Part of the reason why I was able to babysit was because he was there to help. But, he LOVES his new shift and is a happier man.

So we will try to enjoy this last month of summer and do all the fun things we have been putting off.

Here are some cute pictures of us at the park yesterday and also just some random cuteness.

My kids and Savannah and Ashton (our babysitting kids)

Our FAVORITE park in Huntsville, UT. The coolest park ever. This picture doesn't even to it justice.

Mr. Tyler

Kylee Cutie

Baily and Savannah

I thought this was hilarious. This is how Tyler fell asleep one night. The kids get to watch movies in my room on Fridays and this is how I found Tyler that night. It's really fuzzy, but you get the gist of it.

I forgot to post the pictures of our 5K on the 4th of July. James and I ran it along with My sister-in-law RaeLynne, my niece Ariel, and my best bud Tiffany. It was way fun and we all had personal best times!

Here is James crossing the finish line.
