Bushnell Family Reunion

 Had so much fun going down to St. George for the Bushnell family reunion. We enjoyed playing tennis, going swimming and going to the Wizard of Oz at Tuachan.  Loved spending time with family.
Payton loved the play, she did so well! She was obsessed with the Dog Todo, every time he would go off stage she would notice and ask me where did the dog go.
Teaching her young

She was excited to finally say she is 3!

Fair Week

We had a very fun crazy week going to the fair and hanging out with the Bakers and the Hartleys. Payton was in heaven she had her cousins to play with and animals to see/pet. 
 She had lots of corn dogs and slushies 

 Loved petting the calf 
 Had a blast going on tons of little fair rides with her cousins.
Got to love the blue lips

 This girl is amazing at getting dirty.

 Oh Landon……I say cheese and this is what I get. 

 Too cute, they always fight who gets to sit by Payton. I love how much they love her!

Sammy's birth story

Well lets start form the beginning at about 3am. I was waking with contractions about every 30 minutes, but I wasn't a hundred percent sure they were the real thing because they were more front lower contractions and with Payton they were lower back contractions. So not wanting to cry wolf, I didn't say anything to Nick. That was a bad idea. I thought that they would go way because the last 2 nights before I was having pains just at night and when I woke up they were gone. So I thought they would go way, and they didn't. I had a doctor apt at noon so I figured I would go to that and see what he says, then let Nick know whats going on.  Once I got to the doctor apt, I was having consistent strong contractions and knew that I was going to have this baby today. He measured me at 4 cm, so he told me to call Nick, have him pick me up on his way home and take me to the hospital.  So I called Nick and my mom right away.  Nick picked me up and I was in lots of pain. We headed to the Hospital, they wanted us to do some paper work, but after being there for like 4 minutes I was like can I go up and start getting an iv so I can get the epidural asap. Once I got up stairs they started the IV and got it in the first time! ya! Then the nurse checked me and I was at a 7cm. I kept on bugging them to get the anesthesiologist. Final about 1:45 the guy came got the epidural in and I was feeling a lot better. Then about 5 minutes later my water broke. Then she dropped to where I was ready to deliver but my doctor wasn't there yet. So we waited for about 20 minutes. The doctor came running in and breathing heavy.  Then he had me push twice for about 10 seconds each and Sammy was out. This time around Nick cut the umbilical cord, which I don't think he really wanted to.

 Sammy Anne Hartley was born on February 24, 2014 at 2:39pm. She weighed 6 lbs 15oz and was 18 inches long.  At first she was struggling breathing a little bit so they had to go take her to the humidifier, so at first I didn't get to see her for a little while which was hard. 

Sammy came out with her right foot not looking like her left one. It scared us at first but the doctors assured us that it was just a positional disability that over time it will look great. 
She is a very loved little girl.  Had lots of visitors that wanted to see her.
