Best Friends!

Nat Nat and Katie are the best of friends. Here's a couple shots of them making "Pinkilious" cupcakes together. They made chef hats and then needed to try them out.

New Floor

Brandon with the help of our good friend Todd put in a new laminate wood floor on our main level a couple weeks ago. It was a lot of hard work but it looks beautiful!! He had to rip out the subfloor in the kitchen along with the 4,000 nails that it was attatched with. We really appreciate our good friends helping with this. Now that it's done it truly is a breath of fresh air. It looks awesome!! Brandon is going to put in new baseboards as well as crown molding next.

4th of July

We really enjoyed celebrating the 4th of July. We started our day early and went to the big parade in Provo. Then we swam with the kids during the day. We finished off our day having a BBQ and playing games with our dear friends the Laytons. I am so thankful for the country that we live in that allows us freedom. I am so thankful for the servicemen that fight to keep our country free.


Last month we went camping to Palisade State Park with two other families from our ward. It was so fun!! We went to the Manti Temple pageant one night, golfed twice, went for a hike and spent the rest of the time playing in the water with the kids. The kids especially loved diving off the floating docks and catching little fish. After the kids went to bed we really enjoyed visiting with our dear friends. So much in fact that we stayed out around the campfire talking during a little rain storm. Palisades is a favorite spot of ours and we can't wait to go back. Thanks for the memories!!

Oquirrh Mountain Utah Temple

Last month we attended the Oquirrh Mountain Temple open house with some great friends. Our kids loved it! Our children have been blessed to attend 3 open houses in their short life time. Their extra exposure to temples has kindled great questions, conversations, and goals. We are very blessed to live in an area where we are surrounded by many temples. The blessings and ordinances performed their have been a huge blessing in our life.
