St. George

Jade LOVES Linley
& Swimming with her papa
We had a good week in St. George with my family before we took off to North Carolina.
We had so much fun relaxing, Swimming, playing pickleball and tennis, hanging with the cousins, watching movies and attending a beautiful wedding. Thank goodness for my angel parents who took such good care of Jade while I attended to my bridesmaid duties. They helped me out so much and I was so relieved to know she was in good hands.

Paradise + Chicco

We took a quick and final road trip just before our summer in North Carolina began. 
We had so much fun visiting where Leon and Debbie grew up. I had never been to that part of California before and it was beautiful.  The whole time I kept asking Tyler if we could move there. He entertained the thought, but it doesn't look like it's going to happen for us. That's okay, as long as we can go back and visit often. The trees were ginormous and gorgeous. They smelled delicious. Somehow, life just seemed less busy and hectic there, more peaceful and serene- truly a paradise. 
We loved spending time with Grandma Inez. It was such a treat for me to get to know her better. She is an inspiring lady. Jade sure had fun with her and I think Grandma had fun with Jade too. The trip was so much fun and far too short. We are counting down the days until we can make it back.

Baby Blue Eyes

We are keeping our fingers crossed that Jade inherited my mom's blue eyes. 
We really hope they don't change. 
& this is the last time we were all together {minus Mike, he was at school} 
before the summer and Dillan's adventure in Oklahoma.  

Sunday Funday

A few Sundays ago{April 21st} we decided to have KFC at the park.
And boy, did we have a good time.  
We played a family game of wiffle ball, played at the playground, 
went for a walk and enjoyed the nice weather. It was a fun day.
