Happy Birthday Chad!

The day after Blake's blessing was Chad's birthday. Since his b-day fell on Labor day, we still had a bunch of family in town, so that was fun. Chad celebrated by golfing with the guys for most of the morning and had a blast. That night Tia babysat the boys so we could have a night out. We hopped on the scooter and drove up to the scenic Tuachan outdoor theater and saw Footloose. It was awesome, and what made it even better was Thayne from So You Think You Can Dance was the lead in the show! It was a great night. Happy Birthday Honey! I love you!

Blake's Blessing Day

This past Sunday was really special. We blessed Blake in church on Sunday. Chad gave him a beautiful blessing. It was so neat to have so much family here to support us. Thanks to everyone who made the effort to be here for such a wonderful day. After church, we came back to our house, had a nice little lunch, and then just hung out and enjoyed each others company. Everything turned out just as I pictured it. Blake looked like a little angel and was all smiles the whole day. I am so grateful for his little spirit in our family. He is such a blessing and brings us so much happiness.


We had a great 4 days out in California for our first official family vacation with 2 kiddos. It was such a blast. Everything just worked out so well. It made us excited to do more trips like this in the future. We hit the beach a few times, shopped the cute little beach shops at Laguna, hung out at Down Town Disney with Shawna, Andy, and the kids, swam, etc. etc. We didn't want the trip to end. The kids were angels, and Parker still talks about the beach daily. We can't wait to go back!

Washington County Fair

A few weeks ago, on a Saturday morning, the day started out like this:

Chad was working overtime for another Pharmacist that was on vacation, so I decided to brave the Washington County fair parade by myself with the boys. It was a complete success. Parker loved the parade, and the candy that came along with it. He was perma-grin all morning

After Chad got off work, we went to the fair and met Nana and Boppa there. Parker loved seeing all the animals. He almost crushed this baby chick to death:

So we decided that feeding the baby sheep and goat was an activity that was better suited for Park

All of this excitement was topped off with a little of this:

And now I think Parker wants to be a farmer when he grows up. Thanks for the good time Washington County Fair! See you next year.
