Friends Wedding and Camping... and lack of dunes pics

 My friend Carly got married a couple weeks ago! love her! :) here's some pictures

We LOVE camping.... a few weekends ago we went up camping with our friends. i actually took my camera... this past weekend, we went to the dunes... and i forgot to take pictures! how does that happen.. i dont know, i guess i'll have to see if anyone else took pictures, but i dont think that any of us did.... so whatever i guess! We were having too much fun going on our 4-wheelers and dirt bikes to care about a camera.. and it was rainy and windy most of the time.. BUT i did get SUNBURNED one day! here's camping pictures

Let the Good Times Roll........

Ok. so i know i posted mother's day pictures before i posted everything else that was going on... but lets back track a few days!!!

These first pictures are of Daisy's Play date... I know I know.. kinda weird, but she is my baby and we love seeing her have fun!! Our friends Jackie & Willow came over and brought their cute boxer Meika. It didn't take them long to warm up to each other and then they ran and ran until they got wore out! Daisy gets along with all types of dog, but lots of dogs don't get a long with her. She thinks every dog should just play and some of them get annoyed with her.. (most of the time, especially my mom and my sister's shiz-u dogs)

Meika is the dark brindle & Daisy is the fawn- both boxers! 

Here are some other things we've been up to! daisy is clearly my baby, she rides in the truck with us, sleeps in our bed and sometimes eats with us at the dinner table.... (thanks to derrek that started feeding her table food) On top of all that we have a camp trailer, a new truck (well its an old '86 chev, but to brady it's new! its the brown one in the picture.) and we've started working int he yard... YAY i can see what we need to do!
us getting ready to go camping!
This would be Derrek (I always joke and say its daisy's boyfriend, she loves him)
and if you can't tell we are sitting at the KITCHEN TABLE
This is what daisy does while we eat... that is right next to the table.. she's funny she has to be in the same room ALL the time! 
this is an ugly picture of me doing crafts- speaking of, i have done ALOT lately, i need to put pictures on here.. crap.. i'll try and remember i'm kind of forgetful!
this is brady hanging out while i do crafts :) haha
This is what it looks like on an ordinary basis lately. I go to bed, daisy crawls right up next to me, and brady is left with a smudge of room! it drives brady crazy... to the point he almost makes daisy sleep in her kennel~ she is so funny, she'll push us over until she gets her space, and then she'll sometimes roll over and put her head over my neck... shes crazy! hah but she IS MY BABY! 
I just had to take this picture this morning. This is a pillow we bought when she was a baby! she has played on it and what not but never layed down.... UNTIL last night she layed on while me and brady were watching a movie and then when i woke up this morning she was like this. she must have woken up during the night and went and layed on it.. she's becoming to be such a big girl :)

This weekend we were the host of a big get together!!! Brady's friend Jake & his girlfriend Maren were up from vernal and spent the weekend with us! it was a lot of fun, i really enjoy their company. Brady's friend Dylan also spent pretty much the whole weekend with us as well... it took me back to the days of being young when we'd ask our parents if we could have sleepovers everynight... i guess we never grow up in some sense! i had a lot of fun. Saturday night the boys went and got food at the grocery and we had about 15-20 of our friends over to eat! We grilled on the grill (when i say we i meant brady & Jake) They made Carne' esada/saute peppers & veggies/corn tortillas.... they were GOOD! way to go boys, you guys are great cooks! then we played cards, and later we had a fire in our backyard.. oh the joys of spring!
 Just some of our friends by the fire.... GOOD TIMES! 
I can't wait for the rest of summer & what we have coming up!

Mother's day!

Mothers day was wonderful this year! I didn't have my camera... but my sister did so i stole this picture from her!

This year was different because my mom usually cooks! me and my sisters did it all this year.. I had the idea that we should do the lunch and let my mom be stress free.. stacey came up with the idea of shish-kabobs so i called Stacey & Steph after i figured out what we needed and we all pitched in. Steph was going to be at work that morning so me and stac did the shopping and steph brought stuff that she got the day before! we got there, made the kabobs and then my loving husband did the grillin'!! he loves grillin, so i figured that he wouldnt mind helping.

I had called my grandma and invited her earlier that week and i am so glad the day turned out beautiful and that we could all have fun hanging out!!

I love my mom and my grandmas.. they are all so wonderful! they are such great examples and i look up to them in every way. They won't ever know how much i appreciate them. Mother's day was great, and we have to think of all those mothers out there. But we also need to not forget all those soon to be mothers as well. I have plenty of friends out there that are expecting and i want each of them to know how excited i am and how good of mommies they are going to be! i can't wait to be a god-parent to them all :) haha!

Relay For life in honor of my Grandpa

This year, my sister and my mom have put together a Relay For Life team in honor of my Grandpa Riggs. As some of you may know, he has recently passed away. He got sick a few years ago with cancer, though they took care of it, it started coming back and he'd just been weak ever since.

So in his honor we have joined the American Cancer Society in this Relay For life. (the date is over my 1 year anniversary, so i might be at the relay, i might not, but i will still be doing plenty of other things to help and support.. so please still see if there are ways you can support him)!!!!!
Thanks everything has been there and supported my family through these hard times!

Our relay for life website is: Team William Riggs
The blog web address is: http://relayforwilliam.blogspot.com/ this is where the silent auction will be as well!!

Team Name: William Riggs
Goal: $1000
Date/Time: Friday July 9th at 5 pm to Saturday July 10th at 5 pm. 
Registration Cost: $10
Registration Info: The $10 is paid to Relay for Life online when you register. You will get the Relay for Life general T-Shirt. If you would also like our team t-shirt, Stacey is working on getting a screen printer to sponsor us so they hopefully will be around $5-$10 each or free depending on what sponsors we can get. When you register online look for our team name “William Riggs,” I’ll update you if it changes.
Sponsors/Donations: We need to try to get to our goal of $1000. You can get money donations (which can be done online or with cash/check) or you can get donations for the Silent Auction. *All donations/sponsors over $25 will have their name/logo put on the back of our team shirts to help with some advertising and recognition for those sponsors. (The logo must be a high resolution jpeg, vectorized file like ai or eps to work; otherwise just the name will be listed. Email to staceymoss@live.com). If you are interested in getting sponsors or being a sponsor let me know and I can get you more information if needed.  Again if your name is listed above I have already registered you, you now have a website where you can have people donate to our team in your name. Spread the word.

Silent Auction:  The silent auction will be in early June. Start asking for donations of services, crafts, etc. now. The sooner you can get these items to be the better! All sponsors (businesses or individuals) who donated items worth $25 or more will also go on the back of the shirts. Again logos need to be the same as above. Individuals will just be listed as names.

Schedule: The track schedule will be on a first sign up basis. Once you are signed up, paid and officially part of the team you will get your pick of available spots that are open. We would like everyone to do 1 hour until we get more people and then could lower that time if needed. There can be more than one person on the track but we need at LEAST 1. So if you are a couple and would like to walk together you are more than welcome, more than 1 hour would be preferred but any help you can do would be great! Email me once you have signed up and you’ll get your pick of time slots open. We will have coolers with water for all those walking. (If you are already registered you wont get your pick of walking times until you’ve paid the $10 to Stacey).

Tent: We will have a tent and easy up at our location on the track. Everyone is welcome to spend the night if you would like. You will need to bring your own tent and supplies needed. Let Stacey and/or Carol know if you are interested in staying the night.

This is going to be a great event to help and give back to the American Cancer Society. Thanks for all your help and volunteering! Start getting donations now!
