2 Years

For 2 years this is where our possession have be stored. In my parents garage. (minus the few items in the front it is my dad's junk). Sometimes I can't even remember what we have and don't have. I keep joking it will be like Christmas all over again when open all the boxes in our own place. Well, Christmas is finally here. The Wright's are moving into their own place.

Dave was offered a job out of state and we feel it is the right move. 2 weekends ago I received a text from a friend whom we don't talk regularly (which is quite sad cause she is a great friend). She asked me what Dave's phone number was because her brother is looking to hire someone for this business that he is starting. The next day her brother called and offered Dave this position in his company to be part owner (in a nut shell). Also to help start it up. We feel this is a fantastic opportunity and could work out for us so we are going to do it.

I bet you are wondering where. Guess? Out of every city in the US and all the places we have lived and all the places Dave applied for jobs in... it is Rexburg, ID.
2 years ago Dave graduated and we said sionara. See ya, Rexburg Chapter we are done. 2 years ago we moved all of our possessions out of that state. Now we are going back. Crazy.

Day Get Away

On Tuesday, Carter and I drove up to Flagstaff for the day. We had to get away from the heat, the temp dropped over 20 degrees, and to visit the Stokes family. We had such a good time going outside to play with the water and jump on the trampoline. Kerrigan and Carter (FYI she is the little girl born on the same day as Carter) played so cute together. Carter loved the trampoline, we are just going to have to get one, not only for him but for me too, it is such a good work out.

Animal Sounds

I always thought it was weird how parents taught their children animal sounds. I was going to skip this ability for our children. But, one day it just sort of happened. Carter picked up on the animals sounds really fast and before I knew it he was speaking animal. The sheep is my favorite so I recorded it. He can so cat, dog, bear, sheep, horse and pig. Funny thing about the horse, I am not the greatest horse imitator. I actually hate to do the horse sound. Carter started doing the pig sound for the horse and I did not correct him. So for weeks he thought the horse sounded like a pig. I broke down and taught him the "correct" sound for horse it has taken him awhile to switch but I think he almost has it down.

So much for not teaching animal sounds.

Our Morning

I finally got the blanket made for my friend Kim and her baby. She had him over a month ago. It turned out better than I thought it was going to. In the process of making it it was all different lengths, non of the squares were even, but I ended up liking it. This is Kim and her little guy, Max.

We went to the temple today. We thought if we went early we could walk around the grounds a bit. Only, early in AZ means 5 am and still it is 90 outside. We only stayed outside for about 10 or 15 minutes. It was nice to see the Christus and Carter knew He was Jesus.
Carter and Kim's daughter, Audrey, had a good time playing together. Then we went to Cafe Rio for lunch. I had never been. Carter and I shared a burrito with shredded beef. It was yummy. Thanks Kim for driving all the way over here and treating us to lunch.

I Wonder...

I am not sure who reads our blog; what your background is or what you believe. I don't know what your thoughts are or how you feel. I am, however, going to touch on some of my own beliefs, thoughts, feelings, and a little of my background in this post.
I believe that before this life on Earth we all were spirits dwelling with God. We all wanted to come to Earth to gain a body, to be tried and test, to learn and to grow. I know that everyone on this Earth and everyone who has and will live here, chose to come here for these reasons.
We all chose to come here to receive a body.
Dave and I just found out that our little one who was due on February 24, 2011 stopped growing at 9 weeks. Here is where I wonder. Did a spirit get to receive that body? The body was tiny, so would it be usable? I want to think that we have another child who is waiting for his/her parents. But still, I am not sure. Here is where my logic would say probably. There are spirits, more than we can count, who need bodies. All of the miscarriages, still borns, and abortions that happen would not be for a spirit. I wish to think this untrue. All the pain and suffering that we experience, when they occur, would just be for us to experience and not for a spirit to gain a body. And the baby's body at 9 week is functioning.
Here is where I say probably not, in 3 Nephi 1:13 this is right before Christ is born. Nephi prays about his people and we read what Christ says to him, "Lift up your head and be of good cheer; for behold, the time is at hand, and on this night shall the sign be given, and on the morrow come I into the world..." Christ did not come to the world until he was born. So, I wonder if that is how it is for all of us. Do our spirits enter into our body the day we are born? When we breathe the breath of life? And Christ is a God, it could have been different for Him. If so, when do you think the spirit enters? I am not sure...
There are so many thoughts and "I wonders" going through my head, I hope that I am not rambling and someone has wondered the same things or knows anything on the subject. (If anyone want to comment and does not want to tell everyone you can email me lesley1482@gmail.com)
I know that God loves me and has been with me through this and I have been comforted. I just wonder...

Camping Family Reunion

The main reason why we all came to CA was to go CAMPING. We went to the Calaveras Big Trees camp grounds. We had a blast. Could not keep Carter clean. After the 3rd time of Carter tripping and landing in the dirt, I gave up. No that is not chocolate on his face...
The bears visited twice. The 2nd night they tried to get into the storage container (in the above picture is a green storage container that is where we kept our food from the bears). Mark (Kaylinn's husband) had an idea to put all the sweets into the coolers. That kept them from trying to get in the 3rd night. But they were curious about the box on top of the truck and they left foot prints. Pretty scary and exciting.

We went to the river that was close by. Dave, Mom, Mark and Kaylinn are in this picture floating down the river. The water was cold and Carter did not want to get in so I stayed behind to watch him. He had fun collecting rocks and hiking by the river.
We went on a hike one of the days. The trees were amazing. They were gigantic. We went during Carter's nap time so he did not have a good time.
In this picture you can tell that is is not happy.

Look at this tree, we are standing next to it and is still bigger around.
Carter was in his element, he loves being outside. By the end Carter became a pro camper, he stopped tripping and falling in the dirt, he chased squirrels, picked up sticks, collected rocks and explored his surrounding.

Grandma Wright's House

We drove to California for a reunion. Carter did fantastic on the way here, no whining or complaining that he was in the car seat for 12 hours. He sure was a trouper. We went to the park and had a picnic. The boys had fun playing on the jungle gym. Carter loved the side and swings.

We also got to fly kites. The boys loved it, even the big boys.

We took a family picture. I like it, I think it turned out pretty good.

After church we captured a picture of the cousins. Braxton (18 months), Macade (3 1/2), Carter (20 months). We had tons of people ask if Braxton and Carter were twins. And one lady asked if they were all triplets. Stupid lady you can clearly see that Macade is older than the two of them.

Pool time fun at Grandma's

We picked plums. Carter sure enjoyed them.
