My "Naken" Girl

Bella loves to be "naken".
She rips off her clothes and diaper and tells me, "WOOK mommy! I NAKEN!"

She hasn't done this at a grocery store yet, so we're good.

At Flaming Gorge, Becoming "ONE" with nature.

1st Time Boarding

After about 15 attempts at standing up, I finally got it. And what a THRILL!!!

Mykel shows me how it's done

Sis-in-law Camille captains for Mykel

Daddy with Bells / Beautiful Ava girl

Ty makes it look easy, but it's much harder than I thought!!

I was pretty stiff when I finally got up, and for the following week felt the pains of it being the first time. YOW-ZA!

Next time I'm gonna clear the wake - YEAH right!

Celebrate Good Times

In one week, we celebrated our 6 year anniversary (June 25th) and my 26th birthday (June 21st) we took a little trip to Wolf Creek, Utah!
We decided we'd miss Bella if we didn't bring her, so she came along for the fun.
She is such a little fish!
Bella would say, 'Schwimmin' PoooL" most of her waking hours there. She loved to SCHWIM!
Bella found a fly with only one wing, and it became her pet. Gross!!
We brought food from home, and grilled every meal... So yummy!
We took walks every morning - lots of butt blasting hills and beautiful views!
If it weren't for the allergens and the wintry snow, I might live in Wolf Creek! It's such a beautiful place!!

These are the tasty cupcakes that Camille made for my birthday! Mmm!!!!!!
I received so many cards, messages and kind thoughts on my birthday...This girl felt the love.

On the day of our anniversary we decided we'd make a trip to the Bountiful temple - one we had not visited yet. It was a lovely and peaceful time for us to reflect on the promises we made to each other there.

After the temple, we ate at CPK where we used a gift card from 2 years ago! Free lunch! Woo hoo! It was divine, to say the least.
On our way out, we gave our left over pizza to this guy - his sign said, "Disabled Vet. Anything Helps". I think we both left feeling grateful. It was an end to a wonderful week.

Our Daddy

This is our daddy...

And we love him.

We are so grateful to have this daddy in our lives.

We felt grateful on Father's Day for this daddy and for all other father figures in our lives.

Most especially our great Father in heaven who is small enough to know us each so personally.

We love you daddy!
Love, Bella and Your Emmaline
