It's a beautiful day for a walk!

I've been walking around my neighborhood these last couple of days and always see things along the way to take pictures of. Today I brought Ammon's camera that we bought him for Christmas. It's smaller than mine so it right fit in my pocket and I wanted to test it out. I took a lot of pictures along the way, but these were the best ones. I wasn't happy with the quality of the camera at all. I like my camera better...even though it's a dinosaur! All the pictures with the exception of the first are from the park near my house. It has a really nice walking/biking trail and beautiful mossy trees. I love mossy trees! These are nothing like the ones in the Olympic Forest, but they'll do.....for now.

A year what?

I've been having back problems and they all started when I was chasing my puppy Lucy around the house wearing socks on wood floors. Normally I take them off, but for some reason I didn't this time...and it cost me big time. I slipped and went down hard! My back has NEVER hurt so bad! I even had to spend two days in bed just lying down. I even went somewhere with Anson and decided to stay in the car because he wasn't supposed to take very long. Right. He took awhile and I really needed to use the bathroom, so I decided to get out of the car. That was a HUGE mistake! It was SO PAINFUL and I couldn't stand straight up and walk at all so I got back in the car. Anson came out probably 10-15 minutes later and I told him what happened. He actually had to help me up and walk me to the bathroom. I felt like an OLD LADY!

Wednesday was my birthday and Anson had scheduled a massage for that morning. It was a GREAT massage! One of the best! I spent the day thrift store shopping and found a couple of good finds. I also decided to pick up pizza for lunch and brought home enough for dinner as well. Later that night I took the kids to get an ice cream cone. It was a pretty uneventful birthday which they all have been most of my life. I got a lot of birthday wishes from friends and family on facebook and Ammon and Ashton made me cards.


He was in Seattle at school which I can understand. I never said a word about it when he got home yesterday afternoon. He only found out when his brother Rob called to wish me a Happy Birthday! All he said was, "I'm sorry I missed your birthday". Um, I forgave the fact that he forgot, but now that he knows he forgot what is he going to do with that information? Apparently NOTHING! That's what makes me mad. He didn't say let's go get dinner, let's go see a movie, let's pick up a cake and ice cream, or let's celebrate....NOTHING. What is wrong with him... Now I'm just hurt. Oh, he finally said "Happy Birthday" to me today. Gee, thanks. Last year for his birthday I organized a dinner at a restaurant and surprised him with his family and my family all waiting there. He's like "What do you want? It's not like I have a whole bunch a money to spend on you." It doesn't take money to make me feel special. Now he sees that I'm mad and wants me to tell him why I'm mad. I can't though 'cause I'm not talking to him!!! He really doesn't get it!

I just had to vent. I'm done.

I just wanted to update a little bit. We had snow last week and I never posted the pictures of the boys playing outside. It seemed like it snowed all day. It was really beautiful to watch and it wasn't expected at all. It was a nice surprise.
