Come on Down!!!

Well this past Monday I had the opportunity to go to a taping of the Price is Right! As you probably know Drew Carey is the new host so this was one of his first tapings that we were attending. When I say we that included Bryce's dad James, brother Justin, James' friend Ricki and I. We were the only lucky ones that could work out our schedule so we could go. So we all headed up to Hollywood in hopes of impressing the interviewers so that atleast one in our group could be a contestant. Bryce's family came up with the idea of the shirts that we wore. I wore a shirt that said "I'll name her Drew" with an arrow pointing to my belly and the rest of the guys wore shirts that said "She'll name her Drew". Anyways to our amazing suprise we accomplished our goal and I was the one that was actually called on the show to be a contestant. In fact, I was the first one called on the show. Everyone is excited and yelling and then they announce the names and hold up a big sign that says the name because it was hard for us to hear. It was so crazy to see Tiffany Bishop!!! So I got called up to be one of the first 4 bidders at the panal. Once again, to my great surprise, I actually won the first bid and got to go up on stage with Drew to then play a game!! My game included a Kowasaki dirt bike and a very funky contemporary couch. So guess what...I totally won the game!!! I then got to spin the wheel to try to be in the running for the showcase (the wheel is actually pretty heavy by the way). So I spun it and after it went around a couple of times it tinkered on the $1.00 and then at the last moment went up a notch and landed on $0.15. Darn!! So close!! I rolled again and went over, so that was the end of my playing. It was so awesome!!! So I won a bunch of camping gear, a dirt bike and a funky couch!! It was such a crazy thing. I was so nervous and in shock at the same time!! We don't know yet when the show will air, but as soon as I find out I'll let you all know so you can watch me embarrass myself. I really have to warn you that I was really excited so I probably look like such a dork, but oh well, it was a once in a lifetime experience! So that is my big exciting event. By the way, Drew Carey is such a nice guy and very personable. He signed autographs and told jokes during commericial break. I got a little shirt for Kaden that he signed as well as my shirt. What an experience!!! Stay tuned for the air date.

Trip to Fresno

A couple of weeks ago my cousin got married in Fresno, so my mom, Eric, Harmony, Felicity, Gracey, Kaden and I all squished in my mom's Tahoe and headed to Fresno. We were full to the brim. Unfortunately, Bryce and Felicity's husband Rob had to "bring home the bacon" for us, so they were unable to join the party! Most of my extended family live in Fresno so it was a nice chance to go to the wedding and be able to visit my relatives all in the same place. It had been a while since they had seen Kaden so it was definitely due time. Eric was our hero the whole trip as he was the only guy to do all the man things like carry and load luggage!! :) Harmony and I are both pregnant so we weren't much help, and we had two babies with us to care for so it was awesome to have some muscles with us. Poor guy, but he was a trooper with a car full of girls and two babies!! Anyways, as you can tell we were very appreciative. We stayed at Grandma's house and got to visit with all our family!! At the reception Kaden, like always, decided that he wanted to steal the spotlight so he started to dance to the music. We would hold his hands and he would totally dance, but only to songs that had a good beat. When a slow song came on he would sit down on the dance floor to have a break. He loves all the attention and for all eyes to be on him. What a ham!! We had such a great time, and it was so nice to spend quality time with my Grandma and Grandpa. Well here are some pictures to narrate our weekend.

Toys were very important...

and so was sleep!!

Kaden tried to help Eric with some driving!
