Tay's bday and Camping!!

I'm obsessed with these two. 
And Capri holding a Capri (sun) - ill probably post this 100 times in her lifetime. Sorry kiddo! I named you :)

Last week was this big guy's bday! We celebrated with games and cheesecake factory! YUM!


What a GREAT uncle! 


His happy face.... until mom didn't feed him fast enough. 
Hahaha he kills me below! 

A play date with Livvy and the kids! They really know how to destroy.

Had a primary class pizza/movie party at my house last Saturday. This other Olivia is also a real sweetheart. As soon as the priesthood sits down each Sunday after passing the sacrament, Capri always goes to sit quietly with Olivia. Life saver!

Also last weekend we went camping! Our first time (and probably last) this summer!! Be-UTAH-ful!

Nothing like eating dirt and wood chips!


They really embraced it!






And then I took Ciara to a colonoscopy yesterday (oh fun!) and Julie watched the kiddos. She's still recovering from surgery and Sawyer loved his new seat!!

And I'm trying this whole working out thing again. I've left denial and realized 6 AM is really the best time for a working mom to work out..... So there's that!
Well book club is tonight and dinner needs to get cookin! Over and out!

End of Summer

Summer is pretty much over in our house bc dadd-io is back in school this week. His last year! April 2017 is gonna be surreal! We still have some fun weather activities planned but I didn't know what else to name this post so voila! Enjoy the random that is my life. 

 
Cute little sleeping bum and a post-carnival bath!

He officially learned to crawl last month! Aka scoot. His right shin has a callous from being drug around. Funny yet sad. Haha but what can you do!

A train ride with Aunt Ciara!!



We are loving our new co-worker and their whole fam! Sawy and Olivia are two months apart and adorable together. And Capri is the mother to both of them! Still trying to get her to stop picking them up, carrying them, endangering their life....

A cousin sleepover again!! These two kill me and Capri is always too close when sharing a bed!!


Went on a two hour walk the other day and had fun with daddy underdogging us!


Grant and Sawyer.... looking alike and also it helps me see Chase in the eyes. 

And other cute photos as I was trying to catch a gran look alike angle!

Sunday best. 
One MAJOR perk of Chase's new job: Sundays off! It's made a great difference in my life!

Playdate with Becca (not the coworker ;)!!) and her kiddos. Thought this would be a cute photo opp.... maybe next time!


And my sweet m-i-l watched my kiddos last night as we hit up SLC Seven peaks! I'm obsessed and want to go back again tonight.... I technically could but I'm tired from working and just got done mowing the lawn! My to-do list for the day is officially completed with this last sentence of the blog! Holla!

bday and reunions!!

It's been quite the last couple of weeks. I'm too tired to hash all the details. But i will hash all the photos. Voila!!
sweet flowers from my cousins, Lauryn and Dallin, for my bday. 
Haven't seen her since before Brazil........ but she's still as fragrant as ever. 

AND THEN MY FAMILY SURPRISED ME ON MY BDAY!!!
I did cause a little stink about them coming to Utah/Roosevelt on my bday but not seeing me. It was glorious! And my first time seeing Grant in two years!

Chase was happy too!
My parents rented a hotel and we had SOO much fun swimming. Wall ball in the pool, goofy, sharks and minnows, chicken fights, etc!!!




AND WE LOVE HONDAS!!!
CRV, Odyssey, Pilot, Accord :)


Then my parents were off to the Ross family reunion. They took Capri a day early and we met up when we got off work the next day!  

 And my Uncle has a pet raccoon.... so there is that.
We went boating and played games and there was this amazing slide/rope swing place!
 


And last month this little man had his 9 month check-up. Biggest head around, average length, and too low on weight but he's a healthy boy!! 
He's finally crawling (aka scooting), can pull himself up, is okay at sleeping, has three teeth, got his first haircut, eats everything constantly, knows the word "no" and shakes his head when he has his opinions. He's our perfect boy!

Then some bubble ball fun! No injuries this time so that's good!



Had a bbq at my in-laws with my non-in-laws and the only pic I have to show for it. 

And the infamous TIMP hike..... no pics again. I was worrying about breathing and not dying.... my dad snapped what he could! 




And then a week in Zion's (aka Hurricane, UT) and we rented this house and it was a blast!!!!



walking to church in the southern utah heat..... not our best idea ;)









And now back in the valley! Having fun and soaking up the summer days!
