If You Love Pictures...

Hi! Brace yourselves, I have a lot of pictures for you today. Cousin time has been in FULL swing around here, which has made us pretty busy. The kids are loving it though!

I've been doing my best to avoid foods that might be bad for my PCOS. I snagged this bread at Costco. It's actually pretty good!

I also decided to try these gluten free noodles. I thought they tasted pretty ok but they gave me the WORST heartburn I've had since being pregnant. I had to prop myself up during the night and sleep sitting up. It sucked. I don't know if I'll give them another try. I might just buy straight up gluten free pasta.
 I made my own mayo from This awesome cook book
 I even brought my own popcorn to the movie theatre! I'm serious about giving this a shot.
 Every morning for the longest time, I've always had greek yogurt and berries with whole grain toast with peanut butter on it. I've always felt super bloated to the point my stomach would hurt every morning. I've since stopped eating the yogurt and switched to the gluten free bread and I can't even tell you how much better my tummy feels! The problem is I cut out both dairy and gluten at the same time, so I don't know which one was causing the stomach pains. I'll have to go back to cutting one at a time and see which is the culprit. I think I'll start by cutting gluten first and see how it goes.

In other news, we have been having tons of fun with the cousins here! Yesterday we braved the 102 degree weather and went to Lagoon! Since it was so hot we did all we could to keep wet and cool.
 Mission accomplished.

 This ride was a huge hit among the kiddos.
 We did our best to stay hydrated.
 Brynlie was pretty hot and tired by this point, but getting wet helped.

 My 9 year old niece decided to go on Cannibal! It may have had something to do with me bribing her with money... and so she could have the bragging rights. Here's her before:
 And after
 She was such a brave trooper and I'm so proud of her! And now she's $10 richer!

Speaking of troopers, we also went on the paratroopers a couple times for reasons explained in the faces of this photo.
 and this one

 See? Told you there were lots of pics. Swings...

 The dumbest ride ever
 The cutest girl ever

 We also rode Bombora a bunch! We all loved it!
 more rides...sick of the pictures yet?

Pow! Right in the kisser!

The end of the Lagoon pictures! Give your scrolling finger a rest now.

Currently Brynlie is sick with a fever (I think she's dehydrated from the heat yesterday) and I have to speak in sacrament meeting tomorrow and Kennedy has her first primary talk. All this with 5 crazy kids running around the house. It's been a wild weekend! I'll write more soon. See ya!
