Happy Pioneer Day

I am so grateful for my ansestors who came and settled in this land. Without them who knows where we would be. I'm grateful for the hard times they had to go through. I have been on a couple Pioneer Treks and had a slight understanding for those pioneers and their journey. What a spiritual experience those Treks really are. I loved being out there in the middle of nowhere just wondering what they must have really gone through and how they felt also what where they thinking. I would have no idea which direction to go in, everything was just desert and looked the and still does. All they had was the Lord to guide them and the Prophet and leaders, who also were lead by the Lord. How grateful I am to their dedication to the Lord and following the spirit. I love celebrating Pioneer Day. I hope I can follow the Lord more and more everyday! Unfortunately I have to work.

Happy Pioneer Day!

Her and I are so lucky to have you baby. We love you Clarke. You are the BESTEST! I love our families so much and our friends. We are so lucky to live where we live and know who we know.

The 4th of July

Sorry for all of the pictures.....

Man I am so horrible at posting things. I need to get better at this stuff. Anyway for the 4th of July we had a party like everyone else does. That's right we want to be like everyone else. I had to work that morning and afternoon. We went to the Cruise in, My favorite thing about the 4th. We go every year. We went on Fri nite with some friends who just go for the food, we love you Jamie and Brian. Brian went to every food stand that was open and ordered something. It was pretty funny. And of of course here is Clarke all excited about the cars and his increasing, by the hour, knowledge of all the cars proceeds to let Brian in in all the greatness and Brian could really careless but bless his heart just listens and really just wants more food....haha I love you babe! That night we went up to their house and watched the fireworks and had some snacks. Great seats. They live right up on the hill by Cliff side..pretty much the best to live in Cache Valley. Jealousy comes to mind! Brooklyn was asleep for the whole thing.
On sat we went with our other friends Brooke and Ethan and met up with Ty and Whitney at the parade on main. After the parade we went back to our house and had some really yummy BBQ and had lots of fireworks. It was Whitney's words 'it was pretty much amazing'. It was so much fun There were some pretty awesome cars. Pictures to come..
Brooklyn just loves Whitney and while we were at the parade Brooklyn fell asleep on Whitney's legs. It was the cutest thing ever. We even had a old lady come over and take a picture of her and told us that that was the way to watch a parade of cars. So cute.

6 Months old

Brookee is 6 MONTHS old. What in the world. That is half a year. It's tripin me out yo! She has got to be the most fun baby EvEr. We just love her so much. I seriously hategoing to work because I'd rather just spend every last min with her. It's good for us to be apart tho and for me to get out to work. (I really do love my job too)
She can sit up by herself, for the most part. Sometimes she loses her balance and tips over and face plants it, it's awesome....LOL she doesn't mind.
She resently developed some beautiful lungs that are piercing to ones ear. She uses them when she is hungry or tired and just wants to be held. She is pretty good at fallen asleep with out me rocking her all the way. She loves her bed I'm pretty sure of it. She is pretty long, not sure an exact length find out on the 21st at her 6 mon check up. Time flys! I love being a MOTHER.....might I add best job in the entire world....EVER! It does make being a mom easy when you are blessed with such a good and happy baby girl. Sometimes she looks at me like mom you are crazy and stop doing that it's old. She eats extremely well that I love it so much! She can sorta giggle but not really. we try so hard. She also has to have all the attention. If you put her on the floor and leave the room she gets mad or if there is nothing more interesting to her at the moment then your face and you aren't looking at her or talking to her she freaks. Such a drama little girl. she hates to wear her bows or maybe it's just because she'd rather suck on them then wear them. she always pulls them off and pulls them apart or just eats them. she has ruined like 3 or 4 of her bows already....thats why the cute fourth of July bow is not on her pretty little head.
