Back From The Hospital

I think the past week was one of the worst in my whole life! I am just thankful it is over, and it just gets better from here! Lyza was born with a cyst on her bowel. The surgeons have been watching it through ultrasounds and decided it was time to remove it... So they resected the cyst, several inches of the bowel, the cecum, and the appendix.. In other words, it was a pretty major sugery. I was constantly wishing it could be me, not her! It was so hard watching her go through it all... The iv's, the tubes down her nose, the pain and discomfort. Gosh! She is a trooper though! We took her for wagon rides to see the bunnies, fish, and the choo choo trains! She seemed to like them because she would hate to go back to the room. I am so thankful for all the blessings that got us through it! Like I said Lyza is a trooper and she is doing so well!

Fun In The Sun

Today Lyza and I went to the Gainey Ranch resort to swim with Jenny and Crew. We had a blast! The pool has a part with sand like a little beach! Lyza is a little fish, she loves the water, she wasn't too sure about the sand at first though. We had chicken fingers and french fries brought to us by the pool too! We felt like movie stars... I was a little scared that she was getting too much sun so I put her in her stroller and she turned around to see the pool through the little plastic window! It made us laugh so hard! She is a crack up! I really dont know what I would do without her!

We had a great Easter! Yesterday we went to the park with Marcus' side of the family and did an egg hunt! Marcus and I found the eggs and had Lyza pick them up.. She wasnt too happy when we made her put them in the basket though, but as soon as she was picking up another egg she was happy again! We had a great day spending time with the family.

A Day at the Park

Lyza had her very first trip to the park today! We went to Porter park, in between the sessions of General Conference. She loved the swing and also enjoyed pulling out grass and eating it! Marcus and I learned how to play bocce ball with the Dannels and the Mechams. All us girls and Crew also watched all of the guys play frisbee.. Very entertaining! Great day!
