Emma's New Pictures!

We got Emma's 1 year old pictures done when we were up in Layton last weekend. They turned out so cute! She has so much personality and was being so cute with the photographer! We really enjoy her and feel so blessed to have her in our family! We love you, Emma!!

More Beach Pictures!

Here are some more pictures of my little beach lovers!

They caught about a million sandcrabs (we put them all back!)

and they had fun getting buried by my dad's girlfriend, Debbie.

We were lucky enough to have my nephew, Kyler, come with us.

He has been a great playmate to my kids and a huge help to me!

Santa Barbara

On our trip to California, we HAD to take our kids to the beach! My dad and his girlfriend met us in Santa Barbara and we went to Stearns Wharf, the beach, and the zoo. My kids fell in love with the beach! They did not want to leave. They loved catching sand crabs, playing in the water, getting buried in the sand, collecting shells, and building sand castles! It was a great couple of days!

Life-Long Friends!

On our trip to California over the 4th, I was able to get together with 2 of my 3 best friends from my childhood. Here is a picture of us on our high school graduation cruise. From left to right...Lisa (who couldn't make it to the reunion), Andee, a random Panda Bear, Me, Julie (nice tie;) Oh, to be young and carefree again! We haven't all been together in about 16 years? Is that right, girls? What an awesome visit it was! We'll have to do it again next year and we'll get Lisa and her clan there.

And here we are now...minus Lisa (we missed you!)

Here are our kids swimming and playing together.
Mikaela and Aubrie had fun with Sydney(sp?) and Hannah and Brady got along really well!
