…that I never want to forget. We spent the afternoon outside at Grandma’s house, Saylor playing in her little pink plastic pool. It’s a warm day, there are lots of bugs, the neighbor has a huge great dane puppy that keeps coming over and scaring Say (lol), but we are together and that’s all I care about lately. Troy’s job has taken him away from us a lot this summer, and it’s hard not to get upset and annoyed about it. The summer is almost over, THANK GOODNESS, so we are all trying to be positive and just pound out these last few weeks! Props to all of those who do summer sales, it is not for the faint of heart!
I can’t remember a time that I didn’t look forward to having kids. Growing up the question wasn’t whether or not I wanted kids, but how many. I realize now that that decision isn’t 100% up to me. Robyn has informed me that we are not having the 11 kids I wanted for a football team. Now that Saylor turned three earlier this week, I realized i couldn’t have had that many kids either and it’s for the simple reason of it would be too difficult. When I say “difficult” though, it may be a little different than what you are thinking, let me explain.
Hi guys! If you are a Utah local, I am assuming you have been to the Utah capitol building in downtown Salt Lake City in the springtime. Since we just moved here (in January), I was unaware that it was a THING.
I was lucky enough to win a mini photoshoot with the amazing photographer Kenzie D. (@kennydawn on IG), and she told us to meet her on the north side of the capitol. Boy were we in for a treat! It was a beautiful day and the trees were in full bloom.
It is funny to move somewhere where the downtown area is somewhere you actually want to go and hang out, and not feel creeped out or scared the whole time you are there (read, downtown LA). Here are a few snapshots from the day, professional & not.
Hi all! Life, like always, has been busy around here. This past weekend we spent some time in Jackson Hole, WY. Our good friends have a condo there, so we stayed with them. They are about 5 minutes past actual “downtown” Jackson Hole (you know, where the famous antler arches are), right at the base of the gorgeous Tetons. It is always so nice to get away, spend some time together as a family, and enjoy nature!
We didn’t have much planned, aside from a sleigh ride through the Elk Refuge! Although we have been to Jackson Hole a few times, we have never done this before. I highly recommend it! And definitely do it when it is sunny and (warmer) out, as soon as that sun goes down the slightest bit or the wind kicks up, it gets FREEZING! Luckily they have blankets on each sleigh for everyone to use. Now when I say sleigh, its basically a large wagon pulled by 2 horses, so don’t get confused, haha! Saylor loved being able to see loads of “elks” and being pulled by horsies. On the refuge there are many different types of animals besides elk; bison, wolves, bald eagles…we only saw elk though. Tickets for this run about $20/adult, $15/child, and 4 years old and under are free!
