515 in the AM and I am up!

I just thought this picture was funny.

Max woke up at 430 this morning crying, he has been doing that lately, I don't know why I changed him rocked him and put him back to bed. Now I am up, thoughts are racing through my head of school, work, plans for how I am going to exercise and get Max everywhere.... and then I jump to what are we going to do with both Corey and I in new jobs (without seniority thus no flexibility). How are we going to juggle things where are we going to live? Argh!!! Anxiety, not a full on panic attack, but just enough that I can't go back to sleep.

Corey became an Elder 2 weeks ago, I should mention that, and this week he got his patriartical blessing. He has been such a hard worker, much stronger than I. I am so proud of him, and proud that he takes things very seriously when it comes to church, because I believe you should.

Max is getting so big and so tall, and I both love and hate the 2's. I am excited to see him continue to grow and talk and at the same time not so excited for him to have moments of "hating" me. I decided to do swim lessons with him this year which can I say are a nightmare!!! 1/2 hour every day for 2 weeks needless to say I have not followed through everyday in going. Your day revolves around swim lessons and he likes only some parts of it. Next year, next year will be better right? I feel like I am always applying that statement to everything. When will things REALLY calm down!

The Demolition Derby!

The first year I went to the derby was the year that I met Corey. The derby is held every year at about this time in Heber. It is so much fun!!! Especially if you are a people watcher because there is a really interesting mix from Park City to Wallsburg. There are a ton of people who dress up for the event. with mullet wigs, overalls fur vests etc.... Very fun.

Corey's parents were part of the judging group and got to sit in the box seats, they also got us great tickets close enough we all ate dirt. Before each heat we would pick our car my favorite... the silver car! Then during the derby Corey and I took Max to the pits and visited Corey's friends, that was really fun to see all that goes into one of these cars.

Corey especially had a great time he was sitting around a lot of the people he grew up with and got to talk (one of Corey's most favoritest things!). One of Corey's friends gave Max a bit of tissue to put in his ears, we had forgotten how loud the derby was. Max was mesmerized!!!! He was good the whole time and took turns sitting on everyones laps. I think we will go again. Hey if anyone else wants to go next year let us know early we'll get you tickets!

Finally I am out of school for almost a whole month, so Max and I decided to celebrate and I took him on his first Trax ride to the Gateway. We had so much fun and Max was pretty good though he thought a scary guy stole his seat on Trax and wanted him to move.
It was plenty hot at the Gateway and so we cooled off in the fountain with the other kids and ate lunch, shopped and then headed home, Max was sooo tired after that but he had fun. I love that he has no fear of people too, he wants to talk to everyone and loves everyone he must have gotten the "Talking" from Corey, I hope he never looses that.
