june twenty-first.

Happy first day of Summer!

Let the festivities begin:

Camping trips.
Lake Powell.
Bike rides.
Walks on the Jordan River trail.
Exploring nearby canyons.
Playing with kiddos.
Sunday nights on the patio.
Tony Grove.
Being outside every day.

And spending every minute we can together, outside, enjoying our not-so bummer summer.

Hip hip hooray!

We love this season.

Home from my AZ vacation.

Already missing:
The desert heat.
The good food.
The Husband.

(Thank goodness I get that last one back on Friday)!

Tyson has been in Arizona for a three week training this month.

Instead of braving it alone for three weeks, I decided to come visit him and enjoy myself some sunshine, good food and shopping! It's also been nice to spend some time with Tyson and have ourselves a mini vacay.

Time spent with family and friends.
Delicious food.
Sleeping in.
D-Backs game.
A little sweat from the heat. Ha!
More good food.
More pool.
And hopefully more shopping before I take off tomorrow... :)

I have really loved this little break from reality. Going home will be difficult, but I have a lot of fun things going on the next little while! Youth conference. Photo shoots. Weddings! Our favorite holiday. And many summer adventures with my best friend. Yeahhhh buddy!

Okay I better sign off. This is being typed on the iPad, a little tricky!

Stay tuned for PHOTOS.

Life's an Hourglass.

I adore Mindy Gledhill and her music.
Her Anchor album is really beautiful.

And this is one of my favorite songs of hers:

It makes me excited to be a mama one day.

That's all. :)


This has been quite a week.

My favorite Arkansan baby went home, as well as my sis and bro-in-law.
My husband went to AZ for a three week training.
Our car was towed.
My hard drive crashed.
I've been a loner.

But aside from all the whining and pity parties, there has been some sunshine peeking through the clouds!


I'm taking a trip to AZ next week to see the Husband and spend some time baking in the sun! 
Simply Mac was able to recover ALL my data on my computer, even though we had to pay for a new hard drive a repair expenses, I was so so happy to have everything. I also learned a very valuable lesson; BACK-UP YOUR INFO FREQUENTLY
I've been focusing on my school work and becoming great friends with Netflix.
So I have LOTS of pictures to update. From the past three weeks. Birthdays, parties, Memorial Day, cute kiddos and much more. So stay tuned... :)

Just one for now:
Cutie cousins!

Will is one!

Today, this little boy...
turned one year old!

And it feels like just last week I was out in California holding my new baby nephew, so sleepy and calm. Now he's crawling all over, giggling almost constantly and throwing balls like crazy!

We love you Will! Happy 1st Birthday big boy!

we start 'em young!

Am I becoming too obsessed with my niece? She's been the star of my last three posts.
I can't help it! She's too darn cute and too hilarious not to be the feature story.

Tonight, at her big brother's baseball game, she insisted on taking pictures with my camera.

"My turn!" "I do it!" "Dis button, D-T?" "Say cheese!"

So great.

Here are a few snapshots from Lolo's perspective.

Not too shabby, eh?

Here's a few that I took at the game (none of the game, sadly! I was a bit distracted by the little lady and baby boy).
 Wind up.
 This picture makes me laugh so hard.
I told her there was a princess in my lens to get her to look at the camera.
Obviously it was a little confusing!

And here's a picture we snapped of her, because she looked too cute not to document.

2 & 22.

This little girl turned 2 on Monday:

And this big girl turned 22 yesterday:

Birthday week is in full swing and coming to an end with Baby Will tomorrow!
