Much to Blog About!

Clay had his doctor appointment last Wednesday and we finally got some good news! Dr. Howard said that his retina looks great and it's working the way that it's supposed to!! The only thing that he was concerned about was that there is some blood in his eye, which explains why what little vision Clay has, has a yellow tint to it and he sees some black spots. The doctor thinks that once the blood goes away everything should be fine. But if it doesn't, then they will have to drain the fluid from his eye and insert an air bubble that will last a couple of weeks. We go back again next week so I'm hoping by then it will be gone and Clay will have regained more of his vision and then be back to normal! I took a picture of him a couple of weeks ago because the gas bubble made the iris look green! It was a little freaky!!! This picture makes me laugh because his eyelid has been really lazy since the surgery so he had to open his eye with his fingers so I could take a picture! :) He even went back to work Sunday afternoon, one month to the day of when all of the eye issues started. It's nice to have things a little back to normal but I'm not liking getting used to him being gone again. I've really enjoyed having him home! I'm Clay-sick already!
Last Thursday we went to my work summer party, we all had a great time visiting had a great dinner and the kids got to play in the pool....until a lovely rain storm crashed the party. It was so nice to have Clay home so that he could be there with us!Then Sunday we celebrated my Aunt Sheryl and Uncle Dave's 50th Wedding Anniversary! We had a delicious pot luck dinner and I so enjoyed spending their special day with them. I am so impressed by their huge accomplishment! There aren't many people that make it to such an incredible milestone! Congratulations!
I've been a little creative lately and made new stickers for our mailbox! I cut them out of vinyl with my Cricut and thought that it turned out pretty good. Better than a boring sticker you buy at the store.

Hot Fun in the Bear Lake Sun!!

This past Saturday we enjoyed a fun relaxing day at Bear Lake with my family! My mom, dad and my sister Keesha took their trailers up and stayed both Friday and Saturday night. We originally had reservations too, but since all of the lovely craziness with Clay and his eye surgery we decided it would be best to cancel our reservation, mainly because we thought that he would be back to work by then and would not be able to go, but.... he hasn't regained his eyesight yet and so he is still trying to recover at home. I'm glad that he still was able to be there with me and the kids and my family but I wish he was back to his normal spunky self. He's really frustrated and irritated that he hasn't been able to see yet. Luckily he goes back to the doctor tomorrow and I am soooooo hoping that we get some good news. Anyway... Bear Lake was wonderful! We spent most of the day lounging by and in the lake. The weather was absolutely perfect, not to hot and the water was also the perfect temperature! Conner, Courtney, Hadley and Kenzlie played and had so much fun and Uncle Ryan built an awesome sand castle! After our day at the beach we celebrated Conner's birthday where he got spoiled rotten with clothes (which he was SO excited about... NOT!), toy snakes (one of his latest obsessions) and my mom gave him a woodburning kit (I can't wait to try that out)! After the party we enjoyed a delicious dinner and then Courtney and I went back to the water before we had to head home. We had such a wonderful time together!
