This summer my parents came up to Utah. It was so great to see them while they were here. It was even more fun to get together with most of my siblings and their children. They decided we would go up to Idaho and go camping. My brother Chris and I got there late on Friday night so we went straight to bed right after the tents were put up for us.
Saturday morning was great my sister and I both made breakfast burritos for the fam and then we just hung out and talked. It was such a great time! I wish we could do this every summer :) I miss camping a lot.
So I am so excited to be a auntie again! They have name little baby Payne her name is Savannah. What a beautiful name for such a beautiful baby girl. Here are some pics on the day they took Savannah home from the hospital.
Congrats to my Brother in law Eric and Sister in law Liz. They are the
proud parents of a
new baby girl who was born at 12:25 pm on July 16th weighing 7 pounds
13 ounces and she was 21 inches long! The name has not yet been
determined. So will post later about her name. Anyways here are some
cute pics :)
I had some extra vacation days so I decided to head to Meridian to see my sister. It was so fun to be up there with my nieces and my sister and brother in law. It had been a long time since I went up by myself to just hang out with them.
The first day I was there I was able to go and see my little niece Ashley at swim practice. I cant believe she is getting so big! She did such a great job in the water. After that we went home and my sister made a really yummy dinner. We actually used pinterest a lot those couple of days because I always wanted to try some of the recipes. I think the first night we made homemade tortillas and then the next morning we did some stuff with bacon and eggs and a biscuit.
The second day we made crafts. It was so much fun doing crafts with my sisters and her girls. They are so fun to hang out with. I only have a couple of pics from the weekend here are a few.
I made this for my inlaws
And this is my sister's dog Macie. She was so super funny :)
It was so great spending that time with my family! I do have to say though that my nieces are growing up way to fast! It was so fun to hang out with them.
Every 4th of July we head down to my husband's aunt and uncle home to do the 4th. This year on the way down I took some picture of the the wild fires that were happening in the mountains. I would have to say that this year has been the worst so far when it comes to wild fires happening. Here are a few pics
This year I really had a great time celebrating the 4th with Brian's family. It is always great to be with family. Here are some pics from the night.
Over the summer at the end of June we had a Maxwell vacation. Brian's grandma Colleen was so generous and got us all condos to stay in for a couple of days. It was so much fun to be up there with them. Here a few pics from the weekend.
It first started with a picnic out by the condos on Thursday night. Then the following morning we headed over to Squatters for breakfast. After breakfast we separated and went and did our own activities. Some people did the Alpine slide and other went golfing.
We did family dinners every night with everyone and then played games before we went to bed. It was such a great time to be with family!
