She’s my Bahama bikini mama

Guys, I’m really tan right now. I’m so happy to be home. The boys had their last day of school on Friday and we decided to celebrate with a trip to my favorite vacation spot, the Bahamas. I took Stephanie with me and 1 nanny to help out at night. The nanny said sign her up for every trip this summer because she had a blast. Stephanie asked when we can come back I said we can come back 1 more time this summer if she wanted. That was a solid yes vote. The kids had so much fun playing in the sand and water. We actually got to go on 2 excursions of sightseeing this time around. I had never done that before. It was easy sitting in the back of the jeep while they showed us around. It really is a beautiful part of the country.

At night Stephanie and I snuck off for some adult fun. She looked so beautiful. I mean really really pretty. She was so happy all weekend and I think she’s starting to fall in love with me too. We still haven’t talked about it. I’m not ready. My dusty heart is waking up though and it feels really good. It feels right. My kids adore her and are starting to get attached to her. We are still going to do 2 nights a week for now and switch off weekends at each others’ homes so we can still get the kids acclimated.

In other news I have this entire summer planned out. I’ve been working on it since January. We actually have a schedule of when we are traveling and when we will stay home. We won’t be staying home much Lol Especially once Friday hits and Steph is off work. I asked if she wanted to go on our next trip next time and she said yes. That’s in 2 weeks. Alex is doing great but I don’t want to push his little lungs. We are back on the medicine that cleared him up and it helps a lot. Heston is great, Peace is great. Everyone is great.

I’m happy. I really am things are so chill right now I love it.

I came on to tell you guys a quick update but mostly to share some more photos. Head over to our Family Facebook page to check out all of the photos I uploaded last night and this morning. It takes time to upload then label them and put them in the right albums. But as you will see it’s more organized now. I worked hard on it last night when I got the kids to bed. The beard is gone Lol Yes I look 12. Okay not really but I still look kinda young.

How are things? I missed you all. Especially one of my readers who I stopped talking to at the top of this month. I see you still come here. I’m happy you still care. You will always be a dear friend to me but we can’t talk right now. We keep finding out way back to each other, don’t we. I mean I don’t know why but there’s something. So be safe, know I do miss you and I’m sure some day we will find each other again.

I love you guys, talk to you again this week! Go check out my smoking hot girlfriend in a bikini. Dammmmmnnnn I’m a lucky boy!

It’s sandy daddy, why?

Hi from the Bahamas!

My kids love it here. The weather has been perfect everyday so far. I’m sunburnt, the kids are okay, and they don’t want to go home. I keep asking just in case one of them cracks. The water feels amazing in the heat of the day. It really is nice being on vacation and finally not having to cater to everyone else I’m with. I have real help this time. I didn’t know it would be this easy. I told the 2 nanny (friends) that came along we need to do this more often Lol Although I’m sure my buddy wants his wife and sister back soon. I just posted about 40 photos from this trip to our family Facebook page and I also uploaded the other photos from my phone and Ipad. I think you guys are all caught up on photos. I took this great photo of Peace splashing both of her brothers and she has the most incredible smile on her face. She really is a part sweet and a part naughty Lol She knew not to splash them but she did it anyway. The boys have been so helpful with her this time. They are growing up and I think they innately understand she’s the baby and needs extra attention. We have gotten in some serious beach time, then some doubly serious nap time Lol I think all of this sun is making us sleepy.

Jesse is having the best time. I know this because she keeps saying that to me. We have had 2 romantic dinners together and have found a little alone time here or there during the day. It’s nice to have someone with me that just wants to chill and have fun. She has made this trip very relaxing for me. I really have enjoyed getting to know her more and sharing some of my life with her. She didn’t realize all I had going on. I’m not very boastful about everything so a lot of people close to me are’t aware. I’m trying to balance my work/home/vacation life and I can honestly say, from here, I got it.

Should we move to the Bahamas??? Yes!! Are we going to??? No Lol I wish.

I do think we need to make this a yearly trip though. I already don’t want to go home and we are 5 days from it. I needed this guys. I really did. I also needed that couples massage we are about to get. Rub my legs and my sore feet please! All of this walking and chasing sandy coated babies around the beach has made me a little sore.

Hope you are staying warm or at least trying to back in the States. I will update again this week. Love you guys. I will be home soon!

Our family vacation to Atlantis

Where did I leave off? We went to the Bahamas for a family vacation. I took all 3 nannies or rather they invited themselves. My wife planned everything out for myself and the boys. The nannies worked out a great schedule. All we had to do was get the babies on the plane and keep them happy for the almost 4 hour flight, two times. The first flight there was great. They both were a little fussy but we worked it all out and were able to keep the crying to a minimum. I think our fellow passengers appreciated that. Nothing worse than two babies crying at full volume for 4 hours.

We got to the airport and rounded up all 6 bags. We had to take 2 vans to the hotel and have help getting all the bags upstairs. The room was really nice. It was big enough to unload all of our portable cribs and baby stuff. It was supper time so we decided to order room service to make it easier. The boys were going to crash at some point and I didn’t want to have meltdowns in a restaurant. Thankfully they did have their meltdowns about half way through dinner so we got them fed, did baths and got everyone to bed. Then we had Heather stay with them in the room so my wife and I could go explore a little. The hotel we were in is very nice. I highly recommend it to everyone. We stayed at The Reef in Atlantis. We decided to walk down to the beach and have a romantic walk. She told me how happy she has been and how many more vacations she dreamed of us taking together. We decided to promise to take a vacation at least once a year.

We got back up to the room 2 hours later and completely ripped the bed apart. We had brought brand new sheet sets for everyone’s bed. The bedbug story right before we left freaked everyone out Lol We put on the new sheets over the mattress cover we brought and decided to chance it. The entire time no one had a bedbug bite at all. No one had any bedbugs at all. We asked the maid service to change everything everyday and wash our sheets. They were so great to help us out. I’m a little bit of a germaphobe so this helped calm me down a lot.

On Saturday we ate breakfast downstairs and enjoyed the 75 degree morning. We decided to take the boys to the beach. As we were getting ready to go downstairs my wife started squealing with happiness. My little baby boy Alex was standing there all by himself. He had lifted himself up using the coffee table and had taken a step. She saw him do it. He stood there not knowing what to do. He was wobbling all over the place it was hilarious. I grabbed my phone and got the video going. Then I told him to come here and bent down. He took one step, two steps, three then made it to me and fell down. Alex started walking! In the Bahamas! How cool is that. I already wrote it all down in his baby book. We told the nannies and he got all kinds of hugs and kisses for that. We got down to the beach and set up our massive beach plot Lol We had 4 umbrellas, 5 chairs, lots of towels. We took turns with the boys in the water. They were allowed to sit in the water but only allowed to go in the water with 2 people per baby. I held Heston and my wife held Alex. We had Sarah and Brandi with us the first round. Heather was talking pictures and videos. They both laughed when the water would hit their feet. We didn’t go in very far at all. I was worried.

We went back and forth into the room to cool them off. Each time the nannies rotated on sunbathing and swimming. Heather made a little friend named Jay. Jay seemed like a nice guy but I chased him off before he got invited to dinner. I told her he was trouble and flirting with other girls before he came over to her. She didn’t know that but we had seem him. He was just looking for anyone. She told him to buzz off and he immediately started up again. I told her see, he’s an ***hole Lol She said yes but he’s cute. Girls will be girls. We all enjoyed a nice time at the waterpark and did some of the slides. We took the boys to the baby pools and took turns going into the swimming pools with them. My wife took Heston down the lazy river and said it wasn’t so bad so we took Alex. He is the one that freaks out. We test most things out with Heston first and if he’s cool with it, we take Alex. I’m sure that will be discussed in therapy when my kids are older. How I used Heston as the tester of all things scary.

Saturday night my wife and I had a romantic dinner date. We got back to the room late because we had such a great time. On Sunday we went shopping and went around the resorts. It’s someplace we will come back to someday. The ladies all said they had a great time. They managed to get nice tans going. My wife said it was beautiful and she felt freshened up after a busy few months.

If you ever get the chance to visit Atlantis in the Bahamas, go. It’s a great vacation spot for the family. We had a great time. I feel relaxed and had a great week at work. I loved it. I put all of our photos and videos on my Facebook for my friends and readers that are on there. I’ve already seen some of your comments Lol Yes that’s my back tattoo. I got tanned too and it makes my tattoo show up better.

Have a great Sunday everyone! I love ya’ll!

Excited and What?

My wife has been on cloud 9 since I bought us the Atlantis vacation package. We are taking the boys and Sarah. Now the other 2 nannies want to fly in to “help”. They are going to buy their own flights down for the night we are going and share Sarah’s room with her. I asked Sarah if she was cool with that and she said only if they work out a schedule with her on who watches the boys on what days Lol I swear it’s like I have 4 wives or something. It sort of feels like that. My wife doesn’t care. She wants a Saturday night date night and that’s all she said about it.

So we have now worked this all out. Sarah is happy to actually get some time off work to go check out things she wants to see. I think that’s the only reason she agreed to all of this. Plus the room I put her in is bigger than I thought. I got 2 rooms right next to each other. Our is a 2 bedroom suite. Sarah’s is also a 2 bedroom suite. When I started to ask who is sleeping on the couch I got a look like Duh and stopped talking. I forgot these girls all hang out so they would most likely share a bed or take turns on the couch. As long as they have it worked out before we go. I insisted on that. We want to avoid the cat fight we all dealt with the last time we went to Lincoln, Nebraska Lol That was not fun and everyone agrees on that.

Doesn’t that look awesome? I can’t wait to show my family a beautiful piece of Earth like this. I know my boy will be swimming all weekend. We are leaving Friday. Our flight will be interesting. I hope the boys sleep the whole trip.

 

A weekend in Atlantis

It doesn’t feel like a Tuesday. We had a great family weekend. All 4 of us went up to the lake house for the weekend. Sarah stayed in the city. She loves having time off. I think it’s helping her study better. We baked cookies, went swimming. We did a little shopping. The most fun was Church on Sunday morning. Everyone loves having my boys. I think my boys are loving all of the attention. I like that they pray over the babies and children so they will have a blessed week. My Church community is the best. Being Catholic has been hard but not because of other Church members. I mostly struggle with some of the outdated beliefs. There are just things I don’t agree or abide with.

My wife is also a lifelong Catholic so she knows how tough it can be. She is also an attorney and deals with the bad things all day in court. I’m proud of the work she does but it worries me because I know she is face to face with some very bad people. It makes me nervous. She has the same issues I have with the Catholic faith. It has led to hours and hours of discussion about beliefs and morals. We have also made some really good friends with other Church members who struggle as well. It’s refreshing to hear what they think and it makes me feel not so bad for going against the traditions.

My wife and I have decided to take the boys to Italy near the end of the year. We want to visit the Vatican and attend one of the ceremonies they will hold. I have done that a few times and would love to see the Pope again. I was with Drew and his family the last time we saw him. It was a huge day in my life. I felt so humbled and happy being near him. He really is a great man. I look up to him a lot. His way of teaching means a lot to me.

I have cut back on my travels. This year I want to do 1 day trip per week. That way I can be home a lot more. My day trips seem to take longer than I anticipate and I end up missing dinner with my boys. My wife also has had an issue with it and after much compromise for both of our work schedules I agreed to 1 day. So far it’s okay. This means I’m sending others out to the places that I normally visit myself. Which isn’t so bad in this year of transition.

We finally opened our office in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Lindsay has been working on this deal for over a year. With a lot of the casinos struggling there she is trying to buy in small percentages so we can build on them over the next 10 to 20 years. She presented everyone with a casino idea to build, run, and own our very own casino. She said if we put all of our assets into it now the costs won’t be that much as it may be in the next decade. She has a great idea but that is a tremendous amount of money. She said she plans to grow her pot investments up enough where she can set aside $4 million bi-annually just for this project. I asked her exactly how much has she made in her pot investments and she just laughs. It has to be a lot more than I think. No one else knows either. We all try to guess but she refuses to share. I think that’s great and it also explains the car lot she now has parked at her house. She keeps buying vehicles and houses. I think she now has 4 houses in Las Vegas and 2 in Los Angeles. She says she’s buying cheap, fixing them up and sitting on them until the market booms and she can sell them all off for a big profit. She’s also really into buying guns. That part worries me. She already had a few laying around the house. I talked to her about leaving guns and so much cash around but she told me to stop worrying so much.

This year I will be traveling to the following places for work:

Grand Island, Nebraska
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
Las Vegas, Nevada
Reno, Nevada
Salt Lake City, Utah
Los Angeles, California
Miami, Florida
Paris, France
Dubai, United Emirates
Detroit, Michigan
New York City, New York
Atlantic City, New Jersey

These are were all of my offices are at. We have no plans to expand anywhere else this year. We all agree to focus on each office and build them up. Other than Las Vegas and Chicago most of my offices are 6 to 8 employees each. We want to expand that so we can build the businesses up. I’m also trying to help our reputation for being corporate real estate raiders. We aren’t in the business to buy buildings to piece meal them out. That’s not at all what we do. But we are well known for getting the buildings we want for the price we want. That hasn’t gone unnoticed and it’s causing a little bit of an issue. The good news is we have a solid community service record in each city and we work very well with the businesses we buy and take over. My only interest is to keep business going and growing. I’m not interested in taking it apart and selling off the pieces. We only do that if the owner wants to shut things down or is in so much debt it’s not a reality to keep things open.

I love what I do but it’s a lot to remember. I’m trying to balance raising my boys and being married. I have failed in some areas but I’m working to fix it. I do communicate very well. I have gotten better at being home earlier. That was something that was a big issue early on. And I heard about it Lol My wife is not shy. Especially when I screw up. She lets me know that it’s not cool and not okay and to shape up. So funny. I listen and then she’s happy.

Let me see what else do I want to talk about? Oh my book sales are going well. I have increased the prices now that I’m printing it using Amazon for the paperbacks. I also updated the Kindle versions and can’t wait to see the profits climb. I’ve had a very steady year of book sales. Which has been great. I do donate all of my profits to 2 organizations that help people in or escaping polygamy. They appreciate the support and have updated me monthly with how they spend my donations. It makes me feel like I’m making a big difference. I like helping.

I’m glad that most of the negative things has stopped. It can be tough to ignore people that are nameless, faceless assholes. But after a few months of trying to defend and argue I found that ignoring them completely made them eventually go away. I only have 3 full time stalkers now. All 3 use Twitter like they get paid to harass me daily. I think they are pathetic and obviously have no real life. Why they choose to spend so much time talking about me and my life is beyond me. But I also know it shows how much they do not feel loved in their own lives. It also shows they have no real friends. They spend the day sending out nasty tweets about me without knowing one real thing about my life. I’m glad I have gotten most of the trolls suspended and removed. Lindsay has always been very vigilant to take care of me. She does it because she has always been a loyal friend. I appreciate everything she has done and pray that one day everyone just leaves me alone so I can raise my boys, enjoy time with my wife, and live the great, happy life I have going.

Things have been amazing. 2017 is going to be a great year! I hope you all enjoy this short week. We are going out of town Friday night. We are taking the boys and Sarah. She wants to go with us. I can’t wait to tell you guys about our trip. It’s going to be a lot of fun!
