Saying Goodbye to my last 4 years

I worked as a customer service rep (working from home) for Jetblue Airways for the last 4 years. I really loved my job and saying goodbye to it was harder than I thought it would be. I had always imagined myself staying home with my babies and I thought that it would be easy for me to quit to stay home. It wasn't.  I am thrilled to finally have way more time for my family, but there are times when I miss my job. It had some great perks!  
I turned in my badge and said goodbye a few weeks ago, and I'm super grateful for everyone I met and the new places I was able to visit.  On to new adventures! Love you Jetblue!

4th of July {Part 1}

Everyone has a favorite holiday. I would have to say mine is Christmas but July 4th is a close second.  Andy's is definitely the 4th and every year since we have been dating has been spent in his hometown of Evanston, Wyoming.  It has become a tradition that we all look forward to every year.  We load up our 4 wheelers and guns and drive up to Wyoming for a whole weekend of shooting, 4-wheeling, bar-b-queing and fireworks.  There is something about being in Wyoming that brings out the redneck in my family ;) 

Carter was thrilled to have his little cousin Ady with him this year.

Don't you just want to pinch her cheeks!! 
Younger Brother Jason.. He is single ;)
^^ What did I tell you about Wyoming bringing out the redneck side of us? ;)  
Carter got a little too hot in the heat and ditched his shirt.  By the time we got home that night, he seriously looked like he had rolled around in the dirt.  
Father and son
^^ Don't mind us all looking a little homeless... It just shows how much fun we really did have!

Alumni Game

July was a very fun month for our family. Busy.. but very fun.  We made so many memories that I'm sure we will look back on fondly for the rest of our lives.  

It kicked off on the 4th of July weekend with Andy playing in his high school Alumni basketball tournament.  We drove up to Evanston, Wyoming a few nights before the 4th to watch him play.  It was cool walking around his old stomping grounds. 
Carter and his Grandpa {Andy's Dad}
Love this little stinker
My younger sister {right} and her friend Lexi joined us for the basketball game. 
We also brought Ady with us.. Carters little cousin :)  We love having her around
  I love the 4th of July.  I love the energy that comes with a holiday drawing near and Evanston is one of the best places ever to be on the 4th. 
Andy's team did pretty well.  Their team didn't make it to the finals but it still was fun to go to the game and for him to see some of his old friends and be in his hometown.

The Best of Friends

I've been going through all my photos the last few days and decided to try and get up to date with my blogging. 

Carter's favorite little cousin Ady stayed at our house for a few nights in June and it was a party.  Give a 3 yr old and a 5 yr old an air mattress and it automatically turns into a trampoline. They seriously are the best of friends.

Miss Carly Jane's Blessing Day

I love this picture from my blessing day. My Grandma made my dress and I had such a hard time deciding wether to have Carly wear my dress or get her her own dress.  I decided on having her get her own to keep and cherish as I have mine. 

Her Blessing Day was amazing. It was filled with all the people I love most in my life.  Andy gave her the most beautiful blessing I could have imagined and I felt so blessed to have everyone there supporting us. 

After the Blessing we had a get-together with food at my parents house. One of my favorite things about it was the display my Mom set up.  She displayed my blessing dress with the picture of my Dad and I and also found her blessing dress and displayed it with a picture from when she was a baby.  We also included a picture of Carly.  It turned out so beautiful.

And... Because she is too young to complain, I took advantage and took as many pictures with her on her special day as I could.  Thank you to everyone that came and showed support and helped with food, We are very blessed.

Andy's Birthday

Andy's birthday was going pretty well until he went to play a game of basketball.  He came walking into our house about 30 min after he had left to play a game saying " Hey.. I might need stitches."  I turned around and all I could do was gasp.  Seriously, I wasn't expecting that!  Turns out he got elbowed in the face and he definitely needed stitches.  He cleaned himself up and then went back out to play until his game was over.... that's a boy for you!

He is a pretty tough guy.  Right after getting stitches we went on a 13 mile bike ride.  
Even though he got his present a few weeks ago (the bike he is riding in this picture) it was still fun to go out and enjoy it and ride on a warm summer night.  
Love him.  He is a really great guy and I am very lucky to have such a smart, hardworking, loving person in my life.  Happy Birthday Andy!
