Surf's up

Yesterday Chelsea and I took the kiddos to Cowabunga Bay in Draper. It was a BLAST!!! All the water slides were fun and Brody and I went down most of them, he thought it was really fun and kept laughing while we were going down them. They also have a lazy river that we went on a few times, he loved just laying on mommy in the tube and floating around. If you haven't been here you need to go, such a fun place!!!

The kids played so hard and had such a blast in the sun,
but as soon as we got in the car they all zonked out.

Last weekend my family went camping and boating at Soldier creek resevoir. It was so beautiful, the camp ground we stayed at was Aspen cove and it lived up to its name. The whole place was covered with Aspen trees and fun little trails that Raegan loved to hike. We all carved our names in the trees and had a blast cooking smores and making yummy food.

Josh, Austin and my Dad
Me and the Brody Boo hiking with Raegan and Chelsea

Raegan loves little Lulu and brought her with us hiking, she ended up having to carry her because she was having a freak out trying to get back down the trail to her mom. haha Lulu can't be farther than about 1 foot from my mom.


My mom, Brody and me waiting for our hot chocolate in the morning. YUM!

This is our camp spot, we loved it because it had picnic tables, cement and a fire pit, much easier to camp when you are not on top of the dirt every minute.

It was so beautiful !!!!

Raegan on one of our hikes of the day.

The two boys love eachother,
they kept feeding eachother crackers, it was sooo cute!

The boys all stopped for a little fishing.


Wyatt feeding Brody :)

Wyatt LOVES driving the boat with his daddy.

There was this big rock that we had our lunch on and the big boys and Raegan jumped off of.

The PT Cruiser, Josh inherited this boat from Grandpa. We have lots of good memories on this boat with Grandpa Paul T, now we are making many more good memories with our little kiddos. Grandpa would be happy.

Raegan after she jumped off the cliff, what a big girl.

Handsome man

Austin has to shave handle bars everytime we go camping :) Nice huh?

We could not get the kids out of the dirt, they were having the time of their lives digging and rolling around in it. We figured we were camping, they might as well get dirty.

IT'S A.........

We couldn't be more excited to be welcoming a fancy little girl to our home. Brody keeps clapping when I tell him he is going to be a big brother to a little sister, he doesn't really know what that means but he thinks its exciting! :) See you in about 4 months little one.

Brody is WALKING.

The last couple of days he has been cruisin around the house like a big boy.

He falls and pushes himself right back up and keeps walking.


Brody is pretty much laughing all day.

He is either laughing at himself, one of his toys or cracking up at Austin and I.

He is infectious and I can't help but smile when I am around this little guy.

11 months

Brody is 11 months old.
I can't believe how fast the year went with this little guy by my side. He has changed so much in the last few months and is getting bigger and bigger by the day. I love having him with me every second and miss him while he is sleeping. He makes me smile all day long and is constantly chatting. He is standing by himself and walks really fast while he is holding onto something. I bet it won't be long now until he takes his first few steps alone. Brody boo I love you, Thank you for being my best buddy the last 11 months.
I've been looking at his baby pictures today and trying not to cry, I can't believe its been almost a year since I was holding this little baby boy and smiling from ear to ear with the knowledge that I was finally a mommy. He is my greatest joy and I feel so blessed to have him in my life.
