a very busy week but also very very fun!!!

The start of a very fun but busy week...this week i was at my nanny job m-w-f and my Wind Crest Retirement Home job m-s and i over night baby sat Thursday and Friday night Saturday during the day. i was a very busy girl but on top of that i spent all day Tuesday up in Broom Field spending the day with my niece Payton May! and Thursday early afternoon visiting one of my teachers who had just had twins! what a fun week it would be even with being busy!!!

These first couple of pictures of Payton and i enjoying a morning of a cup of milk a bowl of cereal and ELMO!!! she is such a cutie even with messing bed head. she is a little princess for sure...through and through!!!

giving her some loves above and she is giving me a precious little Payton i wave you Caree look below!she is showing off a cheese for the camera!
Payton enjoying her wagon ride to the pool!!! What a cutie and she picked out her little chicken hat to wear.
She was nervous at first about jumping into the water even though it was nice and warm she just kicked around on the side but from the pictures below you can tell she got in and had lots of fun...sorry i love my niece so much that i thought all the picture were super cute and i wanted to share it all!

Drying off after fun at the pool!
After getting ready from playing at the pool we headed back out in the wagon for the park and the store! When Auntie comes to visit she has to spoil her niece and take her to do everthing she wants to do!

Playing on the slide after the swings she had a lot of fun climbing the play set again and again...i knew nap time would be good later!

I took this picture only for the fact i was really proud of the job i did on Paytons hair. i have a hard enough time doing my own hair let alone a squirly little girls! but the part is strait the braids are even and not falling out and to top it off i put a cute matching head band in! go Auntie Carlee!!!!
After we were at the park we continued our wagon ride to the store to ride the pony. On our way like she was professional at going to the store she grabbed her size basket and went right into the store and turned towards the ponies!!! once she parked her cart she hopped onto the pony and said "Give me my pennies! i need to ride the horse please!" she rode the horse 6 times there was a line after...just kidding...luckly the store had two horses or there would have been a line!

Riding in the wagon back home!
After nap time which ended up being over 2 hours (i napped too) we played in her room with all her many babies!
Can you find the little girl playing/hiding in her closet full of babies?
She told me..."Caree kiss it! needs loves!"
she is done playing in the closet....notice she is holding her dads monkey from his childhood (it is missing its eyes!)

Visiting my Spanish Mrs. Lychock! i had her for Spanish 2 twice and 3 once. my freshman sophomore and junior year of High School. when i came back for my senior year she was pregnant with twin! how excited. even though i did not have her for class i visited her often to check in on her and see how she was doing. half way through the second semester she left to have the babies...Max and Mia!!!
They are so adorable! I visted her the other week and really enjoyed my time with her and the little ones. I plan on going and visiting her a few more times this summer! look at how cute they are!!! little baby angels! :)

Mia was a little fussy while i was over but Max was all smiles! he and i were buddies for the afternoon. i got to help play with them feed them it was a lot of fun and i really enjoy playing mom! 4 ladies in my ward are going to have babies this summer so I am looking forward to more babies this summer! I am a baby lover i cant wait to be a mom but I'm not ready to get married! that is for sure!

On satrday night we went out with some good family friends! Steve and Lalana! My dad and Steve are best friends! They call each othere and talk every week and plan workout times and they are just so cute together. everyone in the family gives them both a hard time because they are totally meant for each other! just look at them on the couch! My mom and Lalana have become good friends as well because of the guys. they cook together trade reciepes and all other fun stuff. after dinner we came back to the house to relax and chat for a little bit longer. I couldnt help but take a couple pictures when i saw those two lover birds on the couch together. What nuts!

looking forward to girls camp next week!

Anna Banana!!!

A fun day at the pool with Miss. Anna Banana Prusse! My older sister Shanda could not pass up the chance to make fun of me when she asked what i was up to the night before when we were chatting on the phone together and i told her i was taking my little friend Anna from church to the pool the next day...being the loving and kind sister she is she told me "Carlee all your friends are 4 or 40!" hahaha Shanda! I love all my little friends in the ward and all my adult friends are the parents of my little friends. what can i say i like the little ones. They are Gods favorite and i know why. they have the sweetest of hearts and souls and love unconditionally! Is it selfish for me to say i like the extra love in my life! Any ways through out the summer there will be lots of pictures of my days out with all my little brothers and sister because really that is what they all are to me! :)Anna and i sitting together in our chairs shairng towels durnign the 5-10 minute life guard break!
Anna is all smiles with a teady gram in each hand! i pick good snacks!

She wanted me to get up off the chair next to her and take another one with her goggles on!
dont forget to check out her blue swim suit it is her favorite because she says "she matches the water with her blue suit and that every one around her will notice taht she blends right in with the pool water!" what a cutie!
This is my favorite picture of the day! it is a little blurry but that is what you get when you ask a mom sitting on the side of pool to take a pic. sooooo, the story behind this lovely picture. We were goofing off in the water and i was going underneath the water and blowing rassberries on her stomach and she would just laugh and laugh and tell me to do it again. i didnt realize i was blowing her suit up. She finally stopped me and told me to look at her while she jumped around in the water being a little girly girl holding her blowen up cleavage! She is a Sassy one for sure! she is going to be a pistol for her mom when she reaches her teen years. She wated a picture for the memory and i couldnt say no to her cute face and her huge chest which was making me laugh just as much as she was. what a cutie pie! i cant wait for our next little date!

The Tune Up Tri!!! part two

The first tri of the fun and exciting! to be honest i really did not train for this at all. I have swam about once a week since swim team. I have been running only because of my two gym classes this semester and the last time i road my bike before race day was August 9th of 2008 last years tri my first ever. So i really did not think i would do very well. but because of trying out for the school swim team this year i was a much better swimmer and my time for the 500 was 10 and a half minutes so my start time for jumoing in the water race day was 7 am and my dads start time was 8:12 i was very excited i was starting before him. it kept me motivated that i did not want him passing me with an hour head start. I ended up doing really good. i am very proud of myself!

I was so excited about the the swim part of the race! 1st because i was wearing my new pair of goggles because the ocean stole my other pair. 2nd i have the sweetest swim cap ever!

Here is my dad and i the transition area he is talking to me and giving me a mojo talk before i head out on the bike and run and I am telling him all about the swim while i dry off and put my socks and shoes on...oh yeah my shorts and t-shirt no way am i riding in just my racing suit!

Mounting my bike at the mount and dismount area. lets just say I am very happy my mom was taking a picture right now and not a video because i could not get on my bike for the life of me and start peddling going up hill. i should have ran fifteen more feet and jump on going down hill. Once i was on i looked around to see how many people saw my struggle on to my bike.

the 13 mile bike loop is two six and a half mile loops. this is me passing by the recreation center for the start of my second lap.

This is my dad on his swim. he started swimming when i was almost finished with my bike. How ever fast you swim determines when your start time is. the faster you are the sooner you start in the morning!

Coming into the final turn before the finish line of the 5k and the final end to the whole race!
Here is dad coming in an hour after me for his finish.

With it all being swam, biked and ran my dad and i checked our times to see how we did. i did better than i thought i would and he did worse. my time was 2hours and 1minute. Dad finished in 1hour and 44minutes. I'll get him next month because i will have trained for the next one. I love the Highlands Ranch Run Series! They put on the best events!

How very exciting my senior one can see i choose to go to Hawaii! My parents grandparents and my older sister Danyelle came! it was an amazing trip. lots of time at the beach! many nights of beautiful sunsets! Lang walks along the beach front! Shopping trips to the ABC Store! and much much more! Some pictures to show off the fun time we had. :)

First time in the water!

Fist dive into the water! Clothes and all!

Boogie Boarding at "Big Beach" this is the wave that stole my racing Goggles! needless to say i got a new pair when i got home that i like a lot better and I am still finding sand in my hair from my face to face with the ocean floor!

Snorkeling Day!!! No one can say i did not try to protect myself from the sun. i put that much on every day and more! thus why i did not burn on the trip!
Three cute little Snorkel girls!

A day of walking the ocean strip for a little shopping and a stop to sit and meditate and look out over the wide beautiful ocean.

Dad Danyelle and I went zip lining!
This is our guide Nikki! she was great!

Jump off and hope nothing breaks...we made it back alive needless to say and we had a great view of the tropical forest while we were flying high!

Dad coming in from our last zip...showing off his religion a little bit.

It was a wonderful trip! Aloha until next time!
i suppose the next big trip for me will be to Rexburg Idaho for college!
