We went up to my parent's cabin in Cloudcroft, New Mexico. My Grandma and my mom were there since Friday the 23rd and me, dad and Jordan drove up on Tuesday the 27th and stayed till Friday the 30th. Corey had to stay home and work. Jordan loved every second except the car rides. For some reason she did not sleep longer than 25 minutes both ways. At the cabin though she had a blast. My parent's cabin is beautiful. It was a nice get away from Sierra Vista especially since it rained every day. I love the rain when you're in a cabin. There is a covered balcony that goes all the way around so we were able to still be outside and Jordan could still play without getting soaked because she loves to be outside. We went for a walk one evening and running through one of the neighbors land is a stream and Jordan loved it. She did not want to leave it, if I let her she would have played in it all night long. Jordan also rode the fourwheeler for the first time for two rides. She loved that too!

Volleyball anyone?

Anyone who knows me knows I am in love with playing volleyball, any kind. In April and October I play in a St. David tournament with my friends normal six-on-six indoor. Then last summer I played doubles in a grass tournament that lasts the whole summer. I first played with my friend Rebekka (Herb) then I started playing with my friend Keesa and we won the championship at the end of the summer. I had a lot of fun! This summer we are going to play again. The games are only on saturdays and Corey usually brings Jordan by with the stroller and snacks to come cheer me on. She thinks it's fun to watch mom hit the ball. She yells and claps her hands. It was funny because for winning we got these trophies and she thought it was for her and still does. But of course I gave it to her! She was very excited. The picture isn't very glamorous because being monsoon season it rained all morning on us and plus our sweat doesn't make for a great look! :) In June my friend Brittany put together a four-on-four indoor tournament. Corey and I played with Spencer and Marlee Forsberg. We got fifth out of 10. We did a lot better than I thought we would. We had tons of fun! I love VOLLEYBALL!

JULY 2010

July was a blast literally with fireworks and all. Happy 4th of July! Jordan did not like the fireworks at all, she was terrified. Hopefully next year she will enjoy them. So Corey and I took her home and put her to bed and we were able to watch the show from our balcony because they have the show at our soccer/softball fields, which is across the street. Then my parents came over and we played games. The next morning we woke up and went to the Tucson zoo for the first time with Jordan. My parents took us. Jordan got to feed a giraffe 2 carrots, even though she wanted to eat the carrots herself. She thought the giraffes were way cool. She also really liked the polar bear, he was awesome. He swam the whole time we were watching him and he did a flip under the water. Animals are the best. She also saw the elephants, lions, tiger, monkeys, rhinos, zebras, ducks and tons of birds. It was a great sunny, but very hot day!

One summer day in 2010!

Jordan has been really fascinated with the toilet for a while. While I was cleaning the shower/tub this is what she was doing. I obviously wasn't paying attention. She even closed the lid after she put it in there for more effect. Then when I was ready to clean the toilet this is what I found.......

That's right, it's one of my pot lids. Hahaha! It cracked me up, she thought it was pretty funny too! She has all kinds of fun! :) I'm glad we can laugh together baby J!
