State Fair

I LOVE the State fair. I have gone every year but 2 maybe 3 times. I love everything about the fair, the animals, the tasty greasy food, the smells, and of course the crazy fair people! I had my first funnel cake this year. It was delicious. I was only slightly disappointed that it is just a fancy scone, but I will still eat them. They are yummy yummy. Cody ate a deep fried snickers and loved it. Nothing beats my fried PB&J. That was the most amazing fair food I have ever eaten!
My dad has always worked at the fair. In AZ I remember he would help judge the animals, or maybe just help tally the scores. I mostly remember eating donuts and playing around so I could be wrong about what he actually did. But here in Utah he works with the FFA students. For a while they just had a petting zoo, which was really fun, but for the last couple years the have had Little Hands on the Farm. It is so fun! The kids get a basket and an apron and they milk the fake cow, plant vegetables, pick fruit, brush a stuffed sheep, ride a little tractor bike around. And when they are done they take their goods and sell them to the market. Then they take their farmer money and get to buy a treat. It is so great! Reese was a little unsure at first, but she got the hang of it towards the end. And my dad loved showing her off to the kids he works with and helping her work on the farm!


One day Cody's mom came home with a bunch of books from the dollar store. I think Reese had more fun playing with the labels we peeled off of them than reading the books! She put them up and down her legs and kept asking us to kiss her owies better. She even walked with a little bit of a fake limp. That could have been because she didn't want her "bandaids" to fall off, but it was still funny.

The Zoo

We took Reese to the zoo a few months ago. She LOVED it. We are pretty lucky because there isn't much that she doesn't enjoy! She rode the carousel, the first ride she was a little nervous, but the second ride she cried when she had to get off! She also liked riding the train! She loved looking at all the animals and only got spoiled a little!
Watching the monkeys. She loves monkeys. She laughed hysterically when they jumped around.
The giraffe was nice enough to stand next to the measuring wall so I could get a pic of how tall he was! I didn't even have to ask.
Cody got some amazing pictures of the tigers, but I of course don't have them on my computer. They are on the desk top that is still living at his parents house. That is where Reese's carousel pictures are too. Maybe one day I will post them. Probably not.

Deimler Family Pictures

Because and April and her family were here this summer we decided to take our family pictures! We only do it every couple yrs, usually when April is on the move to a new place.
The whole Deimler Clan.

We took Reese hiking up to a water fall in Alpine. I learned a lot that day.

One, it sucks taking a 1 yr old on a 3 mile hike. I actually knew this, I was just reminded of it the entire time.
Two, people are stupid. We have 2 Siberian Huskies. Yes they look a little like wolves, but not that much. They look like dogs. But we ran into some people hiking that thought they had run into a pack of wolves. Seriously? THERE WERE TWO. I don't think that constitutes a "pack". They said they were so relieved when they saw their collars. I just rolled my eyes thinking stupid hippies.

And three, I hate hiking. I used to love it! In fact I was really surprised when I finally admitted it to myself . I think I still like camping, but I haven't been for so long that I can't be sure anymore.

I hate walking up a mountain that looks like every other mountain. They all have the same dirt, the same rocks, the same trees, the same flowers, same animals. I like driving in a car up the mountain much better. I don't mind so much coming back down the mountain. I don't know if it is because I know I going home, or that it really is easier for me. But it doesn't hurt my bones like going up does.

I hate that I can't breath. That is because of growing up in Arizona, the whole lung development at sea level vs lung development really high above sea level. But it hurts breathing so heavy for so long.

This hike only proved to me more that I should be a city dweller, visiting the mountains on weekends or holidays while sitting in a car. Getting my exercise on amazing shopping trips. Stopping at a tasty cafe eating delicious pastries and drinking frozen treats.

I have learned some things in my 7 years of marriage that were different when we dated. The biggest thing has been that we both wanted to move out of Utah and live in other countries. I have since learned that will never happen. Cody still tries to tell me that he is just waiting for the right time, his job right now won't let him, blah blah blah. It really is because he will never leave his family. I am actually shocked that he willingly move out of his parents basement! I am glad he is such a family man, I am glad we have both our families so close, but I still want to move.

The reason for my little tale is that I always tease him that he lied to me to get me hooked, and now I am addicted and can't leave! He told me what I wanted to hear so that I would fall in love and stay by his side forever. Which I plan on doing, so his evil plan worked.

But I realize that I did the same thing about this hiking crap. At the time, I loved it. At the time, I wanted to go all the time. At the time, I wanted to tell Cody anything he wanted to hear so he would fall in love and stay by my side forever. I am guilty. Although I didn't realize it at the time, I hate hiking. I am sorry Cody! It makes me beyond cranky. I would rather be watching a 3 day marathon of CSI Miami.

And for those of you that don't know, I hate CSI Miami more than I hate anything else on the face of the planet, except hiking.

We finally got to move to our new house!! After what felt like an eternity and one very nice but meant to be mean email later, our house is finally done and we have moved in! All the boxes are almost unpacked and the catch all spare room has a little trail to get to the other side! It is so nice being back in my own house. I do appreciate Cody's parents very much for letting us stay in the basement 5 months longer than we thought we would, but there is nothing better than your own place!
We got a new couch that is a little big for the room, but I LOVE it! We should be getting our blinds next week and I am using the neighbors internet. I figure that if they aren't smart enough to lock it up, then it is mine for the taking! Plus I think it is the house across the street and that is what they get for watching us move all our stuff on Mon and not offering to help. Nosy little buggers!
I am still working on catching up from over the summer, I still have a few pictures on my camera I need to download and of course put up the rest of the house pictures!
Reese loves having her own room and she got a big girl bed last night. We just have the mattress on the floor right now, but hopefully soon we will find her a good bed.
We don't have an antenna or satellite right now, we just watch a lot of movies. Mostly Enchanted. I forgot how much I love it! Poor Cody does have to watch a lot of Princess movies now. But I LOVE it!
And I will be going back to work soon. I am a little happy about it, but also a little sad. I am happy to get to see my clients again, that is if that haven't all found someone new! But at the same time I don't want to do it. It is nice playing with Reese all day. Even the days she drives me crazy and I want to lock her in the closet... actually I will not miss those days. They are not fun. I think having a break from her a few days a week will be nice on my nerves and our relationship. I just need to find a place to work, and then let everyone know.
It is going to be a busy next couple of weeks.

One weekend Cody's mom watched his sister's cat Simon. He is really the most awesome cat in the world and if I wasn't so allergic, he would be mine, because I would steal him. But Reese loves him, and I believe that he loves Reese too. So much that he let her use him as a pillow.

Horse back riding

Reese loves horses! She is always asking to ride a pony or watch the horse movie. (Spirit) Lucky for us her Auntie Laura has a horse! We have only gone riding once, but she loved it! We went with our friends the Taylor's whose daughter just want to ride a horse for her birthday. It was so much fun! And now I want my own pony.

Jack Johnson

I love Jack Johnson. He makes me happy. And I am so glad that Cody likes him to, and takes me to his concerts. This was our third Jack Johnson concert and by far my favorite. ALO was the first band. They are pretty good. I don't love them, but some of their songs are pretty awesome. Then it was G Love's turn. He is super awesome! He usually tours with Jack, so we have seen him a few times. He has a jazzy, rappy, chillin vibe about him. I would recommend trying him out. He is also known as G Love and Special Sauce. And he plays some mean harmonica. Then it was 2 glorious hours of Jack. He is awesome. It was a great night!
G Love
Jack and Paula. I can't remember her last name, but they sang a couple of songs together. She was pretty amazing.

Car Rides

We went for a ride up the canyon and few weeks ago and about half way up I turned around and saw this.She is such a weirdo sometimes!
This is how she rode to Granny's, not the entire time, but a lot of the time.
I am just glad that, for the most part, she likes car rides, and is usually pretty good.

Rides at the mall.

Reese LOVES riding the rides at the mall. She gets a little nervous when they first start, but she screams when they stop!

Four Wheeling

Reese had her first four wheeler ride this summer. It was just from the driveway to the middle of the lawn with Grandpa, but I think she liked it. When she got back on with Daddy to move it again, she didn't like it so much. At least I got one picture before she started crying.

Family Pictures

We finally had family pictures taken!! Maybe now we will send out Christmas Cards...

House update

Here is a slide show of our house. It was supposed to be done almost 3 weeks ago, but surprise it is not! Yesterday we finally had carpet. They keep telling us that it will be done this week, but I am not holding my breath! I have more updated photos but I am saving those. Mostly because they are still on my camera!

New Mexico again!

At the end of July Reese and I went back to New Mexico! My parents were going for a visit and we saw no reason why we shouldn't get to go too! On our way we spent a night in Santa Fe. It was amazing! I have always wanted to go and I can't wait to go back!

We were so excited to be back at Granny's!
We didn't too much this visit. Mostly because we all got sick, but it was nice just hanging out again.
Reese is a bubble-aholic! She can never get enough! Then Granny brought out the fly swatter to make bubbles and she was in heaven! We couldn't get it to work as well as I remember, but Reese had fun anyway!
Reese loved playing with Papa! Running around the yard and balancing on the cement border around the yard!
We went to Ruidoso to the horse museum. We have been going there since I was little and we always take a picture on this horse! I loved sharing my memories with Reese this summer!
