Utah Summer

I am actually surprised I got as many pictures as I did.  I couldn't have done it without my mom loaning me her camera while we were in Utah for a month.  It was about 15 minutes after we left Omaha that I realized I forgot our camera and I couldn't even think about turning around for it...that's how bad it gets when we have to pack up and leave.  It is just a whirlwind of packing, cleaning, getting cooler food ready, taking care of excited/anxious kids, feeding the baby, packing the car, trying not to forget things:), last minute the time we get in the car I just want to get out of there!  Here are pictures of some of the fun things we did while we were "home" for summer break.  It was a blast as usual and we loved our time with family and friends.

Sidney's Blessing

We were so grateful to be with our families for Sidney's blessing!  We blessed her on a Sunday night at my parent's home while visiting Utah and it worked out perfectly.  It was so nice to have our  family and close friends there.  It is such an amazing ordinance, each baby born into this world has so much potential and so many blessing in store for them.  I am so grateful for Landon and the wonderful blessing he gave Sidney.  Both Kinnie and Sidney were blessed in my baby blessing dress, I hope the tradition can continue on!  I didn't get the greatest pictures and am realizing how horrible I am at capturing lasting memories.  But I guess what I got is better than nothing!

Happy Birthday

To a wonderful father, husband, and friend.  I knew I loved you when we started dating 13 years ago.  In my nearly 16 year old mind I thought you were kind, smart, funny, unselfish, and handsome...and it all still holds true.  You are my best friend.  You are a devoted husband.  You are an amazing father to our children.  What more could i ask for?
