What's Up?!

Vacation Top Ten

1. Jordan and Allison couldn't be a better couple. I love how they compliment each other and all of the things they have in common. They are both amazing, kind, athletic, daring, and fun. 

2. I love being in the Temple all together. We just have one more 17 year old sibling to join us (1 1/2 years). It makes my heart happy to look around and see the smiling faces of each one of my siblings.

3. Park City with Ty's Family was really fun. Lots of talking and just hanging out. Sometimes we get so worried with what we are going to do we don't just sit around and enjoy each other. Ty and I are blessed to come from pretty awesome families.

4. Bowling- Jesse was SO sad he couldn't bowl with the rest of us. He even picked up a 12 pound bowling ball and trying to walk it to me. He is a pretty stubborn kid when he doesn't get what he wants.

5. Jess about bit his tongue off. SERIOUSLY. It is always hanging out of his mouth... so I always knew it would happen. He just hit his chin on the arm of a chair and here you go.... Sad day.

6. Horses with Grandpa and Daddy... my kids are so scared to go on, but LOVE it once they do.

7. Boating at the Sand Dunes. It was fun to share something I loved doing as a kid with my kids and Tyler. 

8. Receptions can be so stressful, but is so amazing to see the people that come and support you. Jordan and Allison have lots of people that love them and we are included.

9. Fourth of July! I put Jesse to sleep (thanks Grandma and Grandpa), but Em sort of liked it :). 

10. Em stuck a nerd candy up her nose on the plane ride home. I thought she had already learned this lesson with the popcorn kernel last year, but I was wrong. Good news though. It only took about 5 minutes to come out. Disaster averted. 

So much more to share, but what a fun two weeks!

You guys have been BUSY! We miss you! Glad to hear the nerd came out a lot easier than the popcorn kernel!

What a fun filled trip to Utah! I'm happy for Jordan!!! His wife looks like a good fit :)

P.S. We just transitioned from the bottle to sippy cup too. It was a rocky week, but it feels good to be through with the "baboo" (how Ben said it).

We miss you guys!
