All the fun stuff

Grandma faraway came last week. She kind of surprised us (told us the day before) and Sophie was thrilled, beyond thrilled. She loves having people around to play with and include her. We stayed insanely busy during the week. 

Last week Josh and I heard on the radio that Goo Goo Dolls was coming to Salt Lake. We wanted to see them last year when they toured with Matchbox 20 (which would have been two of our favorite bands) but they closest they were coming was Las Vegas. Anyway, the Goo Goo Dolls were coming to Salt Lake with Daughtry and the Plain White Ts. Tickets were $20. Look how amazing our 20 buck seats were.

Anyway, we didn't know if we would be able to work out going but everything fell into place, my mom was here to watch Sophie and Josh had a few vacation hours from work he needed to use. So Wednesday afternoon we headed down, had dinner, watched the show, and came home. We made it home about 2:45am. 

The concert was great! Plain White Ts were fun and Daughtry was good (he seems like an interesting guy), but Goo Goo Dolls were the best. They are awesome live. We had a great great time. We both loved this new song. 

Saturday we took Sophie bowling and to play mini golf. She's been asking about golfing forever, but she didn't want us to go without dad. It was a fun afternoon.

Along with all the fun stuff, this week we also mudded and painted our bathroom, cleaned out the fridge, shampooed the carpets, bought a couch, and took Sophie to swimming lessons every day. By the end of the week we felt like this. 

On top of all these exciting things a couple not so exciting things happened. Our dryer went out, so we have been hanging all our laundry and last night (my mom left in the morning) Josh and I found water in the basement. So we have some not so fun things to deal with now.

I keep thinking of little things to post to facebook but I don't because I don't want to be posting there all the time. I also was reading back in this blog to when Sophie was born and I loved it, so I will try to do better with posting here so I can still have that kind of record. 

I could go back and post about everything I have missed, and I might later, but I also kind of doubt it. 

Sophie will start preschool in September and yesterday we bought her a backpack and a couple of school shirts (since she is too long for most shirts that should be her size). I tried to convince her to save the shirts but she wouldn't and today is sporting a new shirt for school. She also posed for me, showing off both the shirt and the backpack. 

About a month ago Josh and I caved and bought her a bike, since her trike won't work. We lucked out in finding one her size for a great deal used and we bought her training wheels and a helmet to go with it. It's pretty Sophie because the bike is pink Barbie, the training wheels are Mickey Mouse, and the helmet has alligators on it.

She likes to ride in the church parking lot because there are no cars and it's flat. The other night she and her dad were playing "gingerbread man." Josh was the gingerbread man and Sophie was trying to eat him.

Josh has a silly gingerbread man voice for when he reads that bedtime story to her and so he used it as he ran around saying "run, run, as fast as you can, you can't catch me I'm the gingerbread man."

There was a hawk in our backyard the other day.

Sophie was so excited for the Fourth of July, she talked about it forever leading up to it. The Saturday before we went to the big fireworks show in Driggs and then on the fourth we had fireworks at my grandparents house. I hope the day lived up to her expectations. 

We have been busy lately- swimming lessons, park days, cheap summer movies, getting things ready for baby. She is so excited for baby... we all are. It's hot and sometimes I'm not happy about that but overall things are good.
