Spring Fever!!!

I am having spring fever right now! I can't stand that our weather has been changing so much.  I woke up to snow on Tuesday! Are you kidding me?  A lady here in town wrote this on her Face book status, Mother Nature must be sleeping around with Ole Man Winter. Someone should tell her he's a bad influence. I thought this was cute! I am getting so antsy for school to out. I love that we have a 4 day week, so that means even fewer days until school gets out. One thing I do not like about our school district is that we get out the Wednesday after Memorial Day! What is the point of sending the students back to school after a 4 day weekend for 2 days? Sorry I just needed to vent! Few now that is over let me tell you about what has been going on at the Jorgensen house.

Brock started baseball and has had 3 games so far. All of them have been miserable because of the wind! I am so glad to not have to watch T-ball this year.  Brock is doing really well. I haven't figured out why his coach doesn't switch up the kids positions to give them experience in several different spots, but oh well I should SHUT UP unless I want to be the coach. I have a hard time keeping my mouth shut! Brock is playing third base. He loves it! When he connects with the ball he hits is very well. He has struck out twice and it breaks my heart to see him so bummed out.  I just tell him that is part of the game! 
 My mom took this picture of Brock, it cracks me up how he is posing!

    Brock is still doing very well in school! He is at a third grade math level! The bad part about it is that they don't over him anything beyond what his class is doing.  He is so bored and he comes home asking me to work with him on his times tables.  He is also almost at a third grade level in reading! I am so proud of him!  He sure does have an attitude lately though. He always thinks he needs to have the last word when we are arguing (I wonder where he gets that from?). He always thinks he needs to play too! I have told him no playing on school days and Sunday! He still asks everyday and says, "But mom I am bored". Oh how I wish I could be bored like him!  Needless to say I can't imagine what our summer is going to look like!

Jaylee has surely developed her own little personality. She is a DRAMA queen! 
 This is here throwing a fit!

I can't believe what a fit she can throw and she is only 1. I think we have a long road ahead. She sure does have a contagious laugh and smile though. She brightens our days! She has become stingy with her kisses and she thinks it is so funny when you ask her for a kiss and she goes and kisses someone else and won't give you any. I am excited to say that she will sleep in her crib all through the night now! She also is walking everywhere she goes. She still losses her balance sometimes. 
The other night I started the bathtub for Brock and her to take a bath. I left the bathroom to go to the other room to get something. A little while later I heard Brock laughing so hard. I went into the bathroom and saw this...

That's right, Jaylee got tired of waiting for me to come and put her in the tub. She took it upon herself to hop in herself. She didn't think it was a big deal at all. She was in there taking a bath and smiling. I was dying laughing and had to run to get the camera. What a little character she is! We love you Jay-bug!

Tomorrow Jason and I are going to Reno for our 2nd anniversary! I bought season tickets to Broadway plays last year and this is my last one. It is the Wizard of Oz! One of the other ladies that usually goes with us isn't going, so I bought her ticket from her for Jason. I was shocked when he said that he would go to it with me. Know we will see is he lets me enjoy it or if he makes remarks through the whole thing. This will be the first time that we have let Jaylee, so I am kind of nervous. I never had this problem with Brock, because being a single mother didn't give me the option. My parents used to take him during the week or weekends sometime so I could go to college or work in Reno. Brock would be 3 hours away from me for a couple days or a week at a time. It was tough, but it was very helpful for my parents to help me out. Off the soap box, sorry I just remember things and have to write them down.  Anyway I am so excited to go on a date with my husband and have some alone time. We don't get this as much as we should! I will post about our trip when I get back.

Disneyland Trip!

It has been way too long since my last post!
Last week we went to Disneyland!

Day 1-
We left on Tuesday after Jason got home from work, ok like 2 1/2 hours after he got home from work. This was 9:30pm. Yes, we are crazy! We arrived at Jason's parent's house around 2:30am. We finally hit the pillows at 3:00am.

We woke up the next morning and got ready to head to California. I was so excited to stop at the Barstow outlets, because I had been there 3 years ago and loved them. Little did I know that most of the stores were no longer there. It pretty much sucked!
We went on this trip with Jason's brother, Jeremy and his wife, Andrea and their two boys, Tyson and Ryan. Andrea went and checked us into the motel and then we met them at the Outback for dinner. It was delicious! We then headed back to the room and went to bed.

We woke up and went to the front lobby to catch the ride to DL. We all loaded up and I was talking to Andrea and she asked if I had everything I needed to get our "Give a Day, Get a Day tickets". I told her what I had and we figured out that I didn't have my license. I was so annoyed I hopped off to go and get it. I seriously ran to the car to get it and got back to the front of the motel to watch my ride drive away. So instead of waiting 20 minutes for the next ride, I walked to DL. I seriously booked it and made it there in time to get my tickets with the rest of my party. I had bought new shoes the day before and got a serious blister while I was speed walking to meet up with my party and I got shin splints. Anyway we were able to upgrade our tickets to a 2 day park hopper.
We spent the day riding the rides, eating, and getting autographs of the characters. Andrea and Jeremy and the boys left around 3 to go take a nap and we stuck around to hang out a bit longer. My sister Melanie came with us, because she had never been to Disneyland before. I made her go on It's a Small World and she hated it. I love it! She timed the ride and it was 18 minutes long. We ended up leaving around 6:30pm. I was like what are we doing leaving so early? I am a dye hard theme park girl. So we headed back to the motel and ended up getting Carl's Junior for dinner. Everyone went to bed early and I stayed up looking on the computer at my craft blog. I think I might have an addiction!

Day 4-
Back to Disneyland and California Adventures. We got there a little later than the day before. We were able to get on rides rather quickly. We rode rides that we didn't get to the day before and I lost Ryan and Brock in Toon Town. Jason was ahead of Melanie and I sent Brock and Ryan to catch up with him. He was headed to Pirates of the Caribbean! Mel and I turned off to the bathroom and when we got out Jason called and I asked if had the boys. He told me "No" and at first I thought he was kidding. When I figured out that he wasn't I sent him to find them at Pirates of the Caribbean! Mel and I searched through Toon Town! I called Andrea to let her know that I had lost her kid. I started panicking and I went through lines looking for them. I even started to cry! Jason ended up finding them waiting for us over where we told them to go. They didn't think they were lost at all.
We stayed a little bit longer to ride some rides and then we went back to the motel. For dinner Jeremy, Jason, Jaylee, and I went to Joe's Crab Shack. Oh it was amazing! The rest of the group went to Red Robin, but didn't want to have to wait so they settled for McDonald's.

Day 5-
We got up loaded all our stuff and headed to Ihop for Breakfast. We then headed to Alamo to hang out with Jason's family. I had a good time hanging out with my MIL, Annette and my SIL Ang on the deck while the kids played. We were able to talk while the kids got dirty and rode on Big Red. Ang ended up making everyone tacos for dinner. I love tacos and so does Jason. We continued to hang out with the fam and I agreed to let Ryan stay the night with Brock. I think I got to bed around 11:30pm.

Day 6-
We got up and Jason went to help his dad burn weeds on the ranch. I went over to Andrea's for some help on my craft blog. Then we headed back over to Gary and Annette's to let the kids play with their cousins. I started to pack stuff up and loaded the car. We said our goodbyes and left around 10:30 am. We arrived back in Battle Mountain around 3:00pm. The missionaries called and said they didn't have a dinner appointment, so we ended up feeding them.

We had a great trip! I don't need to go back anytime soon though. Thanks to Andrea she helped us get one day of free tickets by volunteering and she got our rooms for $45 a night. She scored us some great deals! I was so impressed on how well Jaylee did both in the car and at theme park.

Now we are back on our regular schedules. I can't wait til summer vacation!
