Saying goodbye

Surprisingly enough I miss this place. We spent the last month and a half living with my parents. Jayson helped out on the farm and I got to spend every minute with my family. I loved the time the kids got with their grandparents, great grandparents and cousins. I tried to document as much of it as I could. All the posts are under Summer on the Farm.

Ty is the sweetest boy in the world. That is until you ask him to look at the camera and he turns into beast mode. Even though this picture is not the best at capturing the love between us and Tys sweet self. Its there I promise. We spent so much time and Grandma and Grandpas house that month. Ty still asks if we can go see Shirley. Not Grandma Shirley but just Shirley. I don't know if he doesn't get that he can have multiple grandmas or if he just likes to call her Shirley. Either way he misses her. Misses her sweet hugs and her candy stash! 

Aw Lauren. My big sister and one of my bestest friends. I miss her so bad and can't wait to see her again. I loved every second we got to hang out. I got o help her can some yummy tomatoes and eat them by the handful! Its so fun to have our kids grow up together. I hope they can be as close as we are.

Ember and some of her cousins saying goodbye. Pretty sure Ty and Luke are off causing trouble and being cute. Not wanting their picture taken. (yes Ember has three different outfits on. She tends to blow out)

Ty was a little shy around Justin before we moved in with mom and dad. That month we were there you would have thought they were the best of friends. Ty always wanted to be by Justins side and play with him. They rode the tractor together and ate lots of donuts. Missy spoiled him rotten!! She always had a stocked fridge with juice and treats. I think he wanted to be at their house more than with me:) 

Jayson and I took the kids up to spend the last few days with his family before we made the big move. Mom and Dad were meeting us there and we were driving out to Denver together so it wasn't really like saying goodbye to them but it was to Heather. She wasn't going to make the drive with us so we cried our eyes out and said our goodbyes to her that night. 

To my surprise when mom and dad pulled up to meet us in Cedar I went to put something in the back of the truck and out pops Heather. I was so scared my heart was pounding but it was one of the best surprises ever. It meant so much to see her there. I cried again in excitement and then on the way up with happiness!! I knew I would get a few more days with her.

Before we left Logandale we had to make one last stop and Grandma and Grandpas. Grandma Shirley had lots of watermelon to share but not much left after Ember was gone. She loved it so much and sucked down a few pieces. She was a cute sticky mess!!

When we got to Cedar it only took Ty a second before he leaped out of my arms and into Vance and Eileens. He missed them so much. Ember was a little hesitant at first but then warmed up wholeheartedly.

We spent the day at Jake and Savannahs house and had a BBQ, played croquet, watched the kids play in the dirt, visited and eat peach cobbler! It was so fun to see Ember and Jeffery together again. They are so close in age and played so cute together. 

The next day we all went to the aquatic center together and then out for some ice cream! Ty inhaled his before most of us could get a bite in. He was very specific when he ordered. He wanted 

"Ice cream cone, nella and sprinkles" 

Jessica Annie soaked up every second with the kids. I think she always had one on her hip or playing with the other. The kids are going to miss everyone almost as much as I am. Ty woke up this morning and went from room to room calling out Heathers name. I had to explain to him that we will see her for Christmas but that we can call her whenever we want. 

I know I may sound ridiculous. People move out and far away from their families all the time and are fine. I know that. I also know we will be fine. I actually think we are going to be very very happy. That doesn't change the fact that our families will be missed in the mean time.

So until we see you... Love you!! 
O and don't worry I will be posting pictures of our fun new adventures and our new apartment soon!!
