St. George Deleeuw Gang

Bella and I came out here to St. George for our dear friends' baby blessing and it's been so awesome.

Playing the Pirates dice game until late in the night makes for delirious, hilarious people.

Basketball. I stink at it! And baby Elizabeth. I love snuggling her in the sling!!!

Holding their 7 wk old Elizabeth in the sling, and Bella out for a walk with Con Houser (Tami's dad) and 1 yr old William.

Victoria (4.5 yrs) made sure we built it correctly.

Bella and I love to play with their choo choos!!!

Awkwardly sexy beasts.

My Tami.

These are my friends - I heart them.

Baby Elizabeth Deleeuw's Blessing

Look how cute they all are...

St. George

The Drive Down...

Bella had the blow out of the century - I bathed her in the sink at a nearby gas station bathroom. Nice.

While I changed Bella, the cows looked on with interest. Had they never smelled poop before? Surely not.

It was such a beautiful sunset!

Oh how I heart those Bella dimples.

Bored on the drive down. Yes, very. Forgot the Ipod, so I got creative.

Sucker face.

My favorite happy little cloud. I told Ty I want him to put it in one of his games.


Thank goodness for big, long-lasting suckers!

Finally there!!...

Bella was sportin' my swim suit from when I was little! Love them chunker legs!

"This is the life"

Tami Deleeuw - mother of 5 (counting the husband), and my wonderful friend!

We laugh, a lot. I learned quite a bit more about Tami by getting to hang out with her and her parents, too. They are big jokers! Especially her dad, Con. He's an intellectual, mathematical jOkeSteR! Definitely with a sincere side...but oozing with Tami personality! And her thoughtful and loving mother, Gloria. She always had the kitchen spotless and the food ready for the next meal. They are awesome, and it was so fun to get to know them better!

Cereal Dumper

This is what happens when you use the bathroom and find a good magazine while you're in there....

How could I be mad, when she excitedly tells me, "Baby Eat!!!"

and rushes over to show me.

I first grabbed the camera, then enjoyed a snack from the floor.

Notice her baby in her high chair, with the bib on!!!!

Thomsen party

The Thomsen party continued this week at the Days Inn where they all stayed.

The antibiotics for my strep were kickin' in, so I was feeling better just in time!

We had the hotel all to ourselves, so we took over. My cousins Simon (11), Levi (11) and Harrison (9), and Bella and I played in the pool most of one day. I tried teaching them to swim while Bella splashed, giggled and flirted with all the boys. She adores them!!!

My awesome aunt Drae.

My goofy uncle Steve. (My dad's {Randy} brother)

Cousin Harrison (9)

Fiddle's and violins - Drae taught me how to play!! So fun!

Levi (11) and Simon (11). Yes - twins.

Grandma on the Mandolin and me testin' out the violin.

The boys and grandpa playing Bridge!!

Drae teaching grandma the mandolin.

Steve, Drae and their boys

Grandpa and Grandma Thomsen!

My favorite part about this picture is the decor from the background growing out of Ty's head! hahaha

Drae "backin' me up"

We like to "JAM" and get together with our music. It's fun!!

Uncle Steve recently picked up the banjo! Cool!!! I love it's sound!!!

Sittin' back enjoying the tunes.

Grandma and Grandpa couldn't hold back, so they let their dance moves free!

Bella lovin' on her uncle Gary.

We had so much fun with my family here! I feel so blessed that my strep was mostly healed by the time they came to visit. Bummer that Ty has it now, but we're on the road to recovery! 10 days of amoxicillan should do the trick!

Thanks for coming out to visit! I enjoyed your good company, good music and good laughs.
