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!

America the Beautiful

 Our Memorial Day was really great this year.  We spent the day enjoying our many freedoms together and I wouldn't have had it any other way.  My Dad served in the Army and every Memorial Day he goes to a breakfast to honor everyone that has served.  I am sooo grateful to live in America and enjoy so many freedoms that so many people around the world do not have.  Thank you to those who have served and those who safe still serving.
I am also so grateful for my two blue-eyed babies. I simply adore them!
Our day was spent on Utah Lake.. canoeing, sailing and swimming. Once the canoes were put in the water, I don't think Carter touched dry land afterwards.  He would sit in the boat until the next person would get in and take him for a ride.

Andy and my brother Jason took our Catamaran out but forgot the plug and it quickly took on water so they had to walk/swim the boat back in!^^^

We ended our time at the lake by sailing. Lately sailing has been a really fun pastime for my family. We love how close the lake is to our house and everyone enjoys it.

The day ended just like any other American holiday.. with a bar-b-que.  Bacon wrapped hotdogs, hamburgers, potato salad, music and watching the sunset.  It was a perfect ending to a great day.

7 Peaks Trafalga..

I was feeling pretty brave last week when I took two toddlers and my 3 month old to Trafalga by myself. It actually worked out nicely because my sister and her friend came over at the same time to get their picture taken for their pass, so Carter and Ady were able to go on some of the rides with them that I wouldn't have been able to take them on since I had a baby with us.  

I would recommend to anyone that lives in the Utah county area to get a Pass of all Passes.  It has some great things for kids to do for so cheap!! 
Always match when you can!
oh my goodness.. this baby and her hair! I can't help but laugh! It was combed down, but it has a mind of its own..
One of my favorite pictures ever!  My sister Jenni and her friend stopped to pose for a picture.  Off to the side Carter and Ady copied them by themselves.  I seriously couldn't stop laughing. 
It unfortunately started raining during mini-golf, so we headed home, but I think the picture below shows just how much fun they had :)
