Happy to be a Mom!

I love this thought from President David O. McKay

"She, who can paint a masterpiece or write a book that will influence millions -- deserves the admiration and the plaudits of man. But she who rears a family of beautiful sons and daughters, whose influence will be felt through generations to come, long after paintings have faded, and books have been destroyed she deserves the highest honor that man can give, and the choicest blessings of God. In her high duty and service to humanity, she is co-partner with the Creator himself."

Vacation VI Idaho


Our Camera had a moment with the ocean, and even though is surprisingly working pretty well still turns itself on and off by itself so we have to take the battery out so that it doesn't die. However it did die, before I got to take pictures with my family in Idaho which was our last stop on our vacation. We just go this one shot of the boys in the park.
But we did have a great time seeing my brother and their 2 kids, helped Katie learn how to drive a stick, and had agreat time spending time with my parents. Thanks for the great vacation everyone!

Here is a cute video of Spencer sliding down a slide, I personally love his commentary.

Vacation III and Friends

We were fortunate to be able to spene a few days in Salt Lake and see some friends that we had missed terribly, so here is a few shots. We had dinner with Ashley and TC Perry and the Tim and Aubrey Chavez, both from our Ward in Provo. It was great spending the eveing with you guys and so glad you will be there when we get back.

We went to Thanksgiving Point with my two roommates from Freshman year, They have a animal farm. Devin was a sweetheart and waited for an hour so the kids could go on this Pony ride. Spencer enjoyed it, so I guess it was worth it.

Tiffany and Charlie, Kallista and Me. So great to See you gusy


Here we are with the Taggarts, awesome friends we met in Fresno. They now live in UT Spencer had just gotten home from winning a the Longest Drive in a Golf Tournament and Won this Grill way to go Spencer.

Katie and I are both Pregnant together again. Only she is due in October and having a cute girl.

San Francisco Get Away

Thanks to Nana and Grandpa for watching Spencer for one night and to Hotels.com for our free night. Devin and I took off to San Fran where devin had 2 interviews and we got to stay in a beautiful hotel right on the ocean. We had a sea food dinner and a delicious breakfast in bed!


Our suite, complete with fireplace, jacuzzi, and ocean view. It was a wonderful get away.

Vacation II- The Wedding


Chad and Amanda got married in the LA Temple, Saturday Morning, had a luncheon at PFChanges and a beautiful reception at a reception center in El Segundo

The colors were Gold, Black and Cheetah, so all the little cousins got to wear darling matching dresses.

At the reception they had this beautiful bridge and tiny crik that spencer loved.

Many times wedding dresses fit the personality of the bride. This dress fit Amanda perfectly.
