Happy Birthday to You!

my husband tate and i have celebrated over nine birthdays with one another. in that time we managed to get married, live in three states, (utah, colorado, & wyoming) move eight different times and have the two cutest kids ever! last week tate had another birthday he wasn't here to celebrate so we will have to make up for it when he comes home. happy birthday tate!

while writing this post i pondered the thought that we have had nine different cars and with all of these cars i have great memories with tate. here are the cars we have used in our journey together.

1962 Bug: tate let me drive her while we were dating, i remember having to tow her from one home to the next, we better get this darling thing running again one day

1990 Jetta: the notorious b.i.g., big beautiful south, gangsta lean, what a P.O.S...... we passed this piece on in 2000 to tate's little bro and i think it died soon after that
1991 Subaru, Loyale: the red barron, this car was very loyal....we do miss you, mirror lake we decided we were going to get married :) the marathon trip to arizona and san diego, passed this good girl onto someone in 2002 in colorado

1992 Subaru, Legacy: tate impressed me with his mechanic skills when he changed the starter while the car sat in the pay lot at the student union! this was the last car my parents helped me with, i passed her on in 2000 to my little sister when I purchased the volvo 850

1993 Volvo, 850: my first car of my own! we took this car to arizona, colorado and wyoming, we had some great times in the "night rider" after putting well over 200,000 miles on her she has been passed on to our babysitter this year

1998 GMC, Sierra: the "silver bullet"traveled all over colorado. we took some great road trips in this vehicle to yellowstone, arizona, and back and forth from utah to colorado. we let her go to tates bro after we picked up the ford 350

2002 Ford 350 Superduty Crew cab: this has been a great vehicle we still have it and tate drives it all over the country. he is currently in connecticut and headed for pennsylvania this week. i like to call it "the machine" the power behind this engine is incredible. the worst part of the truck is the price at the pump!!!! i never imagined having to buy diesel and spending over $100 every time you fill up!
1993 Subaru, Loyale: another subaru you ask? yes we like them and tate is a wiz at fixing them he resurrected this one from the dead. we use her as a spare car when tate flies home. she has been back on the road just this year.

2001 Volvo, V70 XC: we just brought her into the family this past march. i found her and had to have her. the price was right and she seats seven. we took her on a trip to california and arizona this past spring. i love her and hope she is around for a while.

tate i am so glad we have decided to travel together in the road trip we call life. I wish you many new adventures in the years to come!

  • June 30

    Tatum turned one last Saturday. I am so glad we have her in our life. She brings us so much joy. When people ask how my baby is doing I get this smile on my face and think of how sweet she is. Last week she started to use her hands to tell me she wants something. If she wants someone to pick her up she will reach her arms out and wave her fingers to motion you over. It is so cute. she loves her brother and always wants to be where he is. She also loves to swim. You can see a picture of her swimming on her birthday Here. My favorite things about Tatum:

1-Kicks her legs with joy when I pick her up

2-Love pats when she gives me a hug

3-Her cute teeth when she smiles

4-Bops to any music she hears

5-Always happy to see me

6-Loves her brother

7-Loves her Daddy

8-Likes to swim

9-Takes wonderful naps, and still goes to bed early

10-She is a girl and I never thought I would enjoy having a girl so much!
