We took our first road trip with Mr. Brody Boo

We drove down to see my brother and his family in San Diego and had the best time. We left on Wednesday after Austin got off work and drove to Baker California (if you ever can avoid staying in Baker, do so, it was ghetto and scary)We felt like we possibly could have been murdered in the night. We woke up early on Thursday and drove the rest of the way to sunny and beautiful California. We played in their pool most of the time, but one day we headed for the beach and let Brody play his little heart out in the sand and waves. He LOVED it!!! Ryon and Danie spoiled us with the most yummy food. Thank you guys for letting us come see you, we love you and MISS you so much! My cute boys getting ready to play in the sand.
Brody's first experience with this texture, he wasn't quite sure what it was, so he just kept digging to figure it out.

My brother Ryon and his darling little man Sawyer.

The two boys were so cute playing together, they are 5 1/2 months apart.

yay!!! we love the ocean!

Little man wanted to jump right in, he didn't even mind how freezing the water was.
Favorite picture of the trip!!!

Danie, Austin, Brody, Sawyer and Kayla Starr

Kayla made some really good sand towers, that didn't stand up for very long, the two little men kept knocking them down and having the best of time.

This is were we spent most of our time,
Their house is seriously like staying at a resort, we had so much fun!!!

Relaxing in the hot tub.

Brody waking up in the morning, he was all smiles and ready to get outside and swim.

What a cutie!

Brody loves his cousin Kayla,
especially because she has sweet wheels to drive him around in. :)

Cruisin around with the radio blaring.

Good bye San Diego, we miss you alreay!
This is on our way home.
He did really good with the 11 hour ride until about the last hour and a half,
he was done and wanting out.

Every year we go to Grantsville to Celebrate the 4th in Style.
Small town parade, carnival at the park, car show, yummy food, and at night more food, games and fireworks. It is always so much fun.
This year was extra exciting having our little Brody boo to celebrate with, he makes everything more fun. We were nervous he would get scared of the fireworks but he loved them and had his mouth open wide in ahh the whole time. It was so cute!!!
Jack and Deb with most of the Grandkids

My handsome boys!!!!

Austin, Brody, Avery, Lainey, and Doug

Look at all the CUTE faces getting ready for the parade and lots of treats!
our little family
Brody was loving these rocks, he kept picking them up in amazement, looking at them, dropping them and picking them back up again. It was so funny.

After the parade and the carnival at the park this little man was exhausted.
Isn't he the cutest???

10 months

My little man is no longer a baby, he is turning into such a big boy.
He turned 10 months on July 2.
Brody is crawling all over the place and pulls himself up on EVERYTHING, mom has to be super alert to make sure that nothing falls on top of this handsome guy.
He jibber jabbers all day long and laughs at himself when he thinks he is being funny, which is pretty much all day.
He wants to walk so bad and constently lets go of what he is holding on to, to see if he has good balance yet. When he falls on his bumb he makes this mad grunting sound.
He loves to drink out of a straw, seeing that he thinks he is such a big boy, he wants nothing to do with sippy cups, strait to big boy cups with straws please!
He has 4 bottom teeth and 3 top teeth, all the better to bite with , yikes!!!
He is growing up way too fast.
What a fun experience it is to be his momma and see all the big things he can do.
It is crazy how much a child changes in the first year. He is such a joy to be around and to watch, he is so alert and loves to learn new things. I love how interested he is in the little things, it makes me stop and really appreciate the little things in my life.
Thanks Brody boo for being my sweet as ever baby boy!!


This summer we have been busy with fun adventures.
Austins whole family got to go to Lagoon for Jack's work party.
We had such a fun time and Brody Loved watching all the cousins ride the big rides.
