Utah


Well, it has been 2 wks and I am FINALLY posting my Salt Lake City, Utah pictures! I am a slacker, I know ;-) As you all know, I am an Internet CEO Mom and I LOVE working from home. Well, Convention was in the middle of August and I had a chance to go. At first I was REALLY scared about traveling by myself but once I did it,it was really peaceful. I could and will definitely do it again next year when Convention is in Minneapolis! I got to meet some of the people that I talk to on a daily basis and it was so much fun!!! I thought it was going to be like an awkward first blind date but it really wasn't. I guess because I have talked to them so much that we are all just naturally friends :-) I could go on and on so lets get to the pictures:

Kylan just didn't understand that I was going on an airplane and he wasn't so I had to make a chart:
Myself, Erika (My first business builder from CA) and Sarah (My enroller from Minnesota but now lives in Utah)
Rebecca (Sarah's Enroller), Sarah, Myself, and Lisa (Rebecca's Enroller)
Now this, this was interesting! They were dancing!!! I have NEVER seen anyone dance the way they did. I will definitely be taking video of this next year ;-D
These are the views from Sarah's house! She lives about 20 or so minutes from Salt Lake City in the mountains and I absolutely LOVED it! I could definitely live there. The only thing stopping me from moving there is family that lives here. The weather was perfect and the view was just gorgeous!! I seriously fell in love with that place!
Baby Easton! He's such a cutie :-)
Awards Banquet! From Left to Right (Who enrolled who) Lisa, Rebecca, Sarah, Myself, and Erika
Gina's girls (She's awesome)
Internet CEO Moms that went to convention (at banquet)

I look forward to going to Minneapolis next year and then back to Salt Lake the next year. Thanks Sarah for letting me stay at your house! You're the best :-)

Our Little Future Baseball Star :-)

You know, ever since Kylan was born, he's ALWAYS swinging those arms. Ever since he was able to throw things, he's always chunked them in a way that you have to duck for cover. Let's just say he's ALWAYS had an arm on him. Give him a ball with a little weight to it and it will end up across the house. We caught a little video of him doing this. It's one of those little squishy balls so it doesn't go very far. If we were to give him an actual ball, something would end up broken!! ;-) Anyway, here it is :-)

Enjoy! :-)

Promise Yourself



Promise Yourself

Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can
disturb your peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness and prosperity to
every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel like there is
something in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything and make your
optimism come true.

To think only of the best, work only for the best,
and expect only the best.

To be just at enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the
greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give
every living person you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, and too
strong for fear, and too happy to permit the
presence of trouble.

Zing...Zang...Zoom!!!

I received an advertisement in the mail back in April I think about the Circus coming to the American Airlines Center and ever since then, I wanted to take Kylan. I knew he would like it just because he LOVES animals. Anyway, we went last Thursday and here are some of the pics!! :-)

Like Father-Like Son:
The Pre-Show:
This clown was hilarious. He kept getting close to Taylor and she kept moving. He just kept following! It as so funny!

On to the show:
Now on the one below, this was hilarious!! They played some rap type music and I looked over and saw all of the daycare kids dancing! They all were standing up and going at it!!! :-D It was probably one of those "had to be there" moments but it was still funny!
And this is what we saw of Kylan A LOT of the show: (He LOVED his light)
Look at these teeth!!! Tigers are such beautiful animals but the STILL scare me!!! ;-)
**These below are courtesy of Taren. She had a much better view of the elephants :-)
When the one below was going on, I was really trying to figure out if that hurt! Do Elephants have teeth???? If so, OUCH!!!! Obviously this was a part of the show! ;-)


This one was kind of like a Cirque Du Soleil (which I LOVE) because all of the whimsical type stuff so I didn't mind:

Well, I took I think around 100 pics and I just can't post them all so I did some of the ones I liked most. I am just glad that I am home to be able to to experience some of these 1st's with him!! :-)

I can't wait to take him next year! I've heard that they have 2 crews with Barnum and Bailey and they switch out crews each year. Next years should be totally different :-) Off to do some laundry!
