Comming Weekend of fun

Woot! We are headed to Bear Lake tomorrow! A weekend of fun. We don’t get out too often as a family, so this will be nice. I will have to get a lot of pictures while I am there to share with you.

First tomorrow my mom and I will go up to Swiss Days. It is a nice festival up in the mountains we love to go to. They always hold it over Labor Day. I am planning on getting my mom her birthday present while I am there. Her birthday is on Tuesday. :D
After we explore Swiss Days we will pick up my dad, younger brother, and my friend Jess and we will go up to Bear Lake. Every year my Aunt and Uncle invite the family up to their cabin for Labor Day weekend. We have a nice party and have a great time with everyone. This year will be fun because they have just built a new cabin up there. I don’t think it is quite finished, but it will be nice and fun none the less. I get lots of pictures and let you all see!

Tuesday I have work off, so I will have to post all of my pictures, those of my new nephew and of the trip this weekend.

Oh, here is my baby nephew!

Big yawn!

He looks just like my older brother!
Sleepy baby!
I am so excited! I just became a first time aunt! Arthur John Mendenhall V was born today at 10:41 am, he is 6 lbs 13oz, 21” long and has dark hair. Mom and baby are doing fine, in fact baby Arthur is sneezing (he is his father’s son!). I can’t wait until I get off work so I can go up to the hospital and see the family! I love babies and can’t wait to spoil my little nephew! A.J. (my brother) and Chelsea are going to be cute parents! Any way… I will have more of an update later.

I’m going to have to come up with a fun nick name for the little guy, Arthur just doesn’t fit! It may down the road, but right now it doesn’t work for him. It reminds me too much of my dad. But who knows, when I go to see him tonight I might change my mind.

When I get some pictures I will post them for you to see!
I will edit this after I go see the baby.

~:~Edit~:~ Oh Little Arthur is soooooo Cute! He has his mother's nose, or so it seems, and his mannerisms already seem to mirror his father. It is funny, he will cry for what seems no apparent reason and stop mind cry and fall asleep, as if he is in protest of something and then not care. He had a hard time staying awake while feeding. He likes to cover his face with his hands. Chelsea told me that when he first came out he had his hands covering his face and he continued to do so all day yesterday. He is so precious! When I got to the hospital both Chelsea and her mom were so tired I was able to hold Arthur for about an hour and a half, I got him all to myself while they got some rest. Chelsea is keeping him in her room and not in the nursery, so when Chelsea is resting her mom is helping take care of the little one. Poor A.J. is so busy, he has to go to classes today teach classes and go to his part time job. At least he was able to be there most of yesterday. What a busy guy. He is in his masters program, teaching a few classes, and has a part time job. He may be busy but he is going to be a cute daddy! I can't wait to get the pictures from Chelsea's mom with A.J. and his baby! I will have to post some pictures as soon as I get them!

Blog erlogel

As silly as I think this is, I am going to do it all the same. A Little blurb about me.... nothing special, just a little hello.

This is my first "blog", which is about time since I have done things similar to this in the past. I don't have a lot of time since I work full time and have a two hour commute every day. I won't make any promises that I will update very much or that often, but I hope that I will post something worth while to everyone. This blog is mostly for those who know me, but i also would love to make new friends.

I work at a local travel agency as a travel specialist. It is the biggest travel agency in the area. It is fun and I learn a lot, but I don't know if it is quite for me. Maybe I just need to get used to the job and gain a clientele before I can decide if it is for me or not. After all I have only been with this company for just under a year, I started last October. Well... we will see what happens.

I am planning on serving a mission for my church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have turned my papers in and now I am just waiting to see where I am called to. I am really excited to see where I will go. I am really excited to go out and serve the lord.

Well, that is about it...

Bla bla bla....
