Summer keeps going (July Part 1)

 July kicked off with a FUN TRIP!!!  Brian had a seminar so we decided to take the whole week and enjoy a LONG LONG LONG...(did I mention Long?) drive together. We decided to go 4 hours out of our way also to see the Grand Canyon. It was BEAUTIFUL, words cant express the WOWNESS you get from seeing one of the Worlds Wonders.

I loved these weird trees all over at the Grand Canyon. The Highlights of this trip were the Miranda Lambert/Darius Rucker Concert, a professional baseball game, sitting by pool every day, reading, EATING LOTS and  G&Amy flew out to spend the week with us!

 When Brian and I got back from the Arizona (me and mine) went to Idaho for a weekend together. We went to our Childhood Lake, Rigby Lake. It was so much fun to swim and laugh and play with my sisters, cousins, and make some memories.

 Our Baby Beth turned 2! She LOVED this picture and was excited that she "put her hand right there" She is such a perfect addition and completion to our family.  I am so glad she is part of my life. I have been able to slow down as a mom and really savor this last season of baby life.

The Month of June

Our Month started out with Lily's 6th Birthday! This year for Birthdays we let the kids invite a couple friends over and made a movie theater in the Basement for them.  The kids loved it and enjoyed to giggles and extra presents they got.

Grandma Joy invited us to David Condo to go swimming. We played for hours and had SO much fun! (sad Syd and Haylee had other plans with their mom)

Brian had a Triathlon at the Summer Games in St. George so we stayed with Josh and Julie and then Bonnie and Beau with Syd and Haylee. The girls had so much fun at this bounce house and with their cousins. (Kat, Eric, Jackson, and Ammon)

Brian coming in on his bike (second leg of the Tri) I love watching and supporting him! I am proud of him and always excited when he signs up for a race.

Joey got a Easy Bake Oven for her 8th Birthday. So grateful for Brian and for the role he lays in my kids lives. Even though he isn't there dad...he support them, loves them, teaches them, and provides me the opportunity to stay home and be there mom...I am so lucky!

My sister Hanna came to stay with us for a week and we got to go to the Zoo and see the Polar Bear and new Artic Center....AWESOME! It was so much fun to have her in town and I got SO much done in my house because of her. It was a blessing to have a sister come and stay for A WHOLE WEEK, just for me, I needed it more than she will ever know at that time in my life!

Joey Got Baptized! A special and emotional day. I am grateful for her choice to join The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  I hope she will always remember this day, and the feeling shared through the Spirit!

Lily's T-ball Team got picked to go out on the field with the Ogden Raptors for the National Anthem. It was a fun game even though we had to leave early due to her getting sick. :O(

June was a busy and full month...but a memorable one! It went too fast!!!
