Fun Filled Days

In the morning we went to Thanksgiving point with Hailey and Benson. The two little ones followed each other around and visited with the animals. Jade loves her pony rides. 

After Jade's nap we went to Mary Grace's softball game. It was a warm and beautiful afternoon. Jade and Razz love going to those games. We always have a good time. Mary played really well, too. Then we went to dinner and back to grandma and grandpa's for some swing time.
It was a very fun filled day. Now that it is warm out, we try to pack the days with fun and being outside.

Mother's Day weekend

Mother's Day weekend was one for the books - the perfect weekend.  The weather was beautiful! We enjoyed mother nature, the sunshine, yummy food, swimming, and the carousel. We had so much fun celebrating motherhood all weekend.  I love everything about being a mom and I couldn't be more thankful for this divine opportunity.  It is the greatest job, privilege, and honor I could have and my heart is so full.  I am even more grateful that I have been able to learn from the best mother and mother-in-law, grandmas, aunts, sisters, cousins, and friends even if some of them aren't mothers themselves yet.

Wellness Check

The only good thing about the doctor for this girl, is the sucker.  If the doctor comes near her, she cries. She, of course, wails when she gets shots- but stops crying instantly once that sucker is in hand. It's all worth it to get signed off on a clean bill of health though. Jade is healthy, happy, and growing.

4 years

We celebrated our 4 year anniversary on April 17. We had a nice night out just the two of us. We went to dinner at Brio, went shopping, & got donuts. I was pampered that day with a massage and a quiet afternoon alone. It was so niiice. 
Can't believe how much my love has grown in the past 4 years. Cheers to forever.

St. George

We had such a good time in St. George celebrating Brock's birthday, swimming, hiking, playing with friends, riding the carousel,  and hanging out with family. The weather was beautiful and it was so hard to leave.  That place is always too good to us.
