Wo- slow down there!

Talk about a fly by Summer. I have had so much go on and haven't had the chance to put any of it on my blog. Sorry for all of the things that I can't put on here, this is why...
May-Just crazy, kids getting out of school etc.
June-Summer is finally here and it rained a lot, Kyle and I got Swine Flu and we quarantined ourselves and did some awesome activities, if I can find the pictures, I will post them.
July-Last part of June and into July we went to visit Jenny and Ryan West family in Fargo, ND. That's right folks, we drove to Fargo Freeking North Dakota. Ask about details for the trips there and back, got lots of stories. We went to Jenny and Ryan's lakehouse in Minn. and had a blast with cousins West family, Thompson family, Loo family and wished the rest were there. The toy's were excellent, thanks to the West's. Had never even heard of Razors that you ride(on land). Awesome!! The Jetski they had was amazing-I was able to pull a 4 person tube and have 2 people on the jetski with me, no problem. It was a mini-boat, newest dream toy for me. After a fainting/ER visit(not me, for once), Karaoke night at the lakeside pizza/bar joint(another funny story, ask for details), Anniversary stay across the lake at another cabin/resort (funny stories with this too), and another ER visit from falling off of the boathouse onto the cement and then into the water (also, not me, my nephew) We had a pretty eventful time there.
We went camping with the ward for the 1st time since we first got married (10yrs) Our kids loved it. No major accidents-for us anyway.
Went to the Highland splash park a gazillion times with the most recent one leaving with the kids' lemonade spilling in my purse and ruining my phone and camera. I about had a nervous breakdown because I can't afford to replace either of them and I couldn't really even get mad because my poor little one didn't realize he hadn't screwed the lid on very well. Blast!
Went to classic skating and 5min. later got in the car and headed to the ER with a broken wrist of Hailey's.(Of course, no working PHONE!) No tears, she is awesome under shock. She didn't even throw up, although she thought she was going to a few times. With a cast up past her elbow, we have been limited to certain activities without water or chance of further injury-try telling this to an active 7yr.old who feels no pain.
Went to Liberty Land again today and had fun doing the one activity that Hailey can do- miniature golf, she pouted at first because she thought her cast wouldn't allow her to play well. after she got a hole in one, she stopped complaining and had fun.

I think you should write a book! There never is a dull moment in your family huh? Your husband told us the car ride story to North Dakota (you both ended up wearing ear plugs, I think he said). I'm glad you are back blogging though! It's good to hear what you have been up to, even though it's been crazy :)
