Congrats to the Happy New Couple!

After Garrett and Danielle's wedding we spent a few days at Bear Lake. We enjoyed the beautiful weather and time together as a family.

Sunday we headed back to Tremonton to visit with extended family.

Happy 100 Birthday Grandma! We enjoyed our day spending time with family, in celebration of Grandma "Red's" 100th birthday. It was great catching up with everyone in honor of this amazing woman who is our common link.

Here's the old sign that still stands today, pointing the way to Grandma Ora's Bridal Service. My amazing Grandma made wedding dresses for over forty years in her small town of Tremonton to help support her family. She charged no more than 25 cents an hour from the first dress she made until the last. She said that it was her desire to help every young bride-to-be to be able to afford a beautiful wedding dress.

Happy 4th of July!

One of my best memories as a kid was making an indian teepee with my mom and siblings. In an attempt to try and recreate that memory with my own kids, one afternoon we got out some sticks, an old sheet, my staple gun, and lot's of paint. The boys loved it! Later we made some feathered bands with our "indian names" on them. Bryant was "Grizzly Bear," Ethan was "Little Warrior," Jonah was "Wild Horse," Kenna was "Little Dove," and I was "Sitting Fox."
As a mother of three boys, one of my most favorite things ever is all the bouquets of flowers I constantly get... as long as they are from our yard.

Ethan has been so excited to start kindergarten this fall. He loves to practice writing his letters.

The other night Bryant lost another tooth...How many teeth does this kid have anyway? Under his pillow he left this note for the toothfairy.... "Pleas give me $5 if you cant $4 is all rite." I guess the $1 haven't been cutting it. Needless to say, the toothfairy left the "usual amount" anyways.

Isn't it every woman's dream to have their own personal chef... especially as cute as this one! Way to cook those peas Jonah.
