Y'all know that we have a huge dog, right? Well, if you didn't know, there's a picture of her in this post. She's a small great dane (small meaning she only weighs 120 pounds and not 200). We were outside with her the other day playing and sometimes she gets really excited and starts running around in circles like a crazy animal. So she started doing her psycho running and Rhys was standing in the yard laughing at her. I remember I commented to Scott, "I really hope she doesn't run into him" . He was like, "No, she won't run into him, she's really good at turning around things and not hitting them". Right after that comment left his mouth, POW!! She plows top speed, face first right into him.
There was the most sickening smacking sound and he went flying. It was terrible!! Both Scott and I took off running towards them. Rhys landed with his back to me and I was sure he would be covered in blood or something. Scott said his first thought was " Oh crap! I don't want to go to the hospital here in Puerto Rico!!"
We were lucky nothing was bloody or broken. Rhys has a head of steel or something. He is seriously an amazing kid. This picture was taken literally 3 minutes after it happened. He cried for about 2 minutes as we were running him into the house. The he wanted down from my arms, went straight to the pantry and pointed to the fruit snacks. Then he sat on my lap laughing at Scott while he ate his fruit snacks. I can't believe it.
So now I know when Sasha starts doing her insane running thing to pick Rhys us ASAP cause I don't want to see that again.

These pictures were taken before Rhys got the huge forehead bruise. We went to a couple of beaches this weekend. Rhys let us cover him with sand. His face was cracking me up.

This was the day before the stupid dog incident when we were still liking her (we still like her, we just think she's really dumb) so we took her to the beach for a run. She likes to chase birds down the beach. It's really funny when we park at the beach and there's other people there. You should see their faces when we get Sasha out of our car (most the people around here have little sissy wimpy dogs). Sometimes they take pictures of her and I think it's funny.
Anyway, we're still enjoying life here in Puerto Rico!!

Home Sweet Idaho

I'm finally getting around to adding pictures of our Sweet trip. Scott's parents live in this little town, Sweet, in the middle of nowhere. It's so much fun to go there because there's so much to do. Every time we go there we vow to have lots and lots of toys one day. It was a blast. Well, for most of us anyway. Scott was sick for most of the time which is lame, but Rhys and I had fun the whole time. So here we are having fun!!

We love seeing the animals. Rhys especially liked feeding the horses and poking the rabbits and scaring them. He'd do his mischevious laugh when they'd hop to the opposite side of the cage. He's such a little boy.

This is how we found the kids a lot of the time. They love the 4-wheelers. Especially Rhys. He was obsessed with them. He would find a way to escape the house and we'd find him up on one of them pretending to drive. It's funny cause he can barely reach both handles.

I like riding horses in my flip flops.

I found these cowboy boots before Rhys was born and he grew into them at the perfect time. He loves them. I think they're so cute. Here is Rhys with Sadie. She's like a million years old, blind in one eye, and mostly toothless. She's the best dog ever and I seriously love her. Jane and Blaine are going to put her to sleep before they leave on their mission cause she's fading fast. I almost cried when I said goodbye to her.

One of the days we were there we took the horses up to the mountains and rode around. So much fun!! I really want to be a cowgirl. My horse was named Blackjack and he loves to run. My butt was so sore the next day, but it was worth it.

We took the kids to the Zoo one day. The kids had a really good time but I think Rhys was afraid of the tiger.

Another day we loaded up the 4-wheelers and went for a fun ride. I feel so hard core. Except the fact that I didn't want to go too fast with a toddler strapped to me. It was awesome.

Me and my sister-in-law Lisa. It was good dirty fun. I miss Idaho already!!
