Goodbye Summer

Last week was our last boating outing and I'm so sad
summer has come to an end. Today it was so cold
outside I can't hardly believe just last week we were
out on the lake. Only in Idaho. Boating one week and
then its snowing the next. We have become huge fans
of surfing this summer so here are just a few pictures
of us surfing it up.

My little sister Megan showing off her skills.

My little sister Madison. This was her first time getting up
on the surf board. Way to go Madi!!

That's one awesome Grandma.

And then myself. Oh please winter go by fast!!

Bran is not the biggest fan of surfing. He would much rather
wake board.

Madi, Megan and I

Quinton and mommy

Cool shades dad!!

Soaking up the sun and enjoying some licorice. Living
the life!

Goodbye big blue until we meet again next summer.

Q did not think the tube ride was all that exciting. He totally
passed out.

Tired guy. This was Quinton's official nap spot on the boat.
I was actually really surprised how long he would sleep in
this spot throughout the day.

Quinton has been walking for about a month now but just the past few weeks he has gotten super good and sturdy. He looks like such a little tiny guy when he cruises around. It cracks me up. He is quite difficult to keep up with these days but it's also so much fun to see him start to do things on his own.

Happy Anniversary to Us

Yesterday was mine and Branden's three year anniversary.
I can't believe it has already been three years. Wow! We had
a fun day and Bran spoiled me big time with a new computer
that I have been wanting for a while. I am seriously the
luckiest woman alive to be sealed to this amazing man for
eternity. He is the funniest guy I know and can always
make me laugh even if I'm trying to act mad. We can
lay in bed at night and just laugh for hours. He is the best
daddy. I love watching him and Q together. There is nothing
better! He is super hard working and always in a good mood
even if he had a terrible day. Thanks for a wonderful three
years babe. I love you!!

Pretty sure all of these pictures are from are first
year together. I had a really hard time finding pictures
of just Bran and I without Quinton in them and
apparently I didn't believe in taking pictures of myself
when I was fat and pregnant. So a little trip down memory
lane will have to do. Sorry.

Splash Park

My friend Calyn and I took our boys to the splash park in
Rexburg last week and had a great time. I love that place!!
I wish there was something like that in I.F. Quinton was a
little scared of all the fountains at first but after awhile he
got used to them and loved it.

It takes a lot of work to look that good in a swim suit!!

Quinton's pal Drake. Poor Drake just broke his leg. So sad.
Hope you get feeling better soon little buddy!

Quinton and mommy

Going down the slide. I'm pretty sure we were the only
adults playing in the water. All the other parents were
in regular clothes watching their kids play. Quinton and
Drake are not quite big enough to just wonder around
without us constantly by their side or maybe that's an
excuse for Calyn and I who really just love playing on kiddie

These two boys were much more interested in the carousal
rather than the water park.

Hoogle Zoo

On our way home from Heber City we decided to stop at Hoogle Zoo. We
had a great time and Quinton loved all the animals minus the
elephants. He thought the really big animals were a bit scary.

Quinton loved the carousal. He laughed uncontrollably the first time around
and then he was more interested in
finding his dad and waving at him as we passed.
These are just a few pictures of Quinton's facial expressions while looking
at the animals.

Really excited!!

A Little concerned

Back to excited.

Not quite sure what he is thinking in this picture but I just thought it
was funny.

Looking at the Elephants and not to sure what to think about them.

Terrified!! This was his reaction to the elephants while they were eating.
In his defense they were kind of scary
looking. Those things are HUGE!!

Work Trip with Dad

Bran had to go to Heber City for work so Quinton and I decided to
tag along with him. I'm actually really glad we did cause we had
a blast! We only stayed one night but we made the most of it
by swimming, going out to eat, and some more swimming. Apparently
I'm like a little kid when it comes to staying in hotels. I think they are
a party! Quinton feels the same way. He loved the pool. We
couldn't get this little man out of the water.

Q loved jumping off the edge.
