Our Big Girl

These are a few of our newest pictures. Since it's been nice weather (kind of) we've been playing outside more and more. I thought that I would be sad the older Henley got, but she is so much fun that every month I say it is my new favorite stage. She is not a baby at all to me anymore, she learns new words everyday, and runs not walks everywhere. We absolutely love having her in our lives.

We were originally watering the grass, but Henley couldn't help getting soaked. She will love playing in the water this summer.

Great-Grandma Ruth's house

We went to Pocatello a couple weeks ago to see Mark's grandparents. They have a huge backyard and sand box. We had a lot of fun. Henley had just woke up from a nap so her outfit and hair are a little crazy.

This is the first picture that I think me and her look alike.

She ran around trying to find any kind of ball.

She fell down backwards, but hopped right back up and showed us just how big she is.

My parents are so great, they love playing with Henley.

Memorial Day 2008

Well our new Memorial day tradition is to go to my dad's cabin. We started it last year and we went again this year. This time Mark's family came with us. It was nice not to have to split a holiday between families, we got to be with both familes. It was a little rainy but, I guess it rained in Logan too. Henley got to spend time with her aunts, uncles, and her baby cousin Anya, who she loved.

Time for hugs!

Henley loved to see Anya, but she also didn't quite know how to be soft all the time.

I still don't know who Anya looks like, her mom or dad, but she sure is cute.

We played a rousing game of family feud, Ozmuns vs. Huntsmans. Jason was the host and Mark was his HOT assistant.

Some of us went into West Yellowstone on Saturday. Everyone else stayed back and explored around the cabin, they found this cool tractor.

And of course, an empty vacuum box is the best entertainment in the world, until it falls apart.
The four of them had fun while it lasted.

Best we need to remember why we celebrate Memorial Day, to think of our loved ones who are gone. We love you all!

These are a few of My Favorite Things...

I was just thinking about how lucky and blessed I am. I just wanted to share a few of my favorite things. Once I started looking through pictures, I had more favorite things than I thought so there are a lot of pictures, sorry.

First of all, family is my favorite thing! I feel like I would have nothing if I didn't have my family. I love how Mark, Henley, and I have made our own little family.

These first pictures are of me and Mark. I am so lucky to have him, he is great husband and father.

The next pictures are of Henley. I love how unpredictable kids can be. She makes us laugh all the time and we think she is the cutest kid on the planet.

We also think our dogs are part of our family and we love them.

I am so grateful that Mark and I come from great families and that we are so close to both of them.

Hawaii!! Who doesn't love Hawaii? Mark and I have gone twice and we would move there if we could. It's so laid back and beautiful, here are some pictures from our trips.

I love having temples nearby to look at and to go to. They are such beautiful buildings. I love living in Utah where the gospel is so prominent. I am so grateful to be member of the church and have the gospel in my life.

I have favorite things about each season of the year, but don't worry I won't share them all. We love going to Aggie football games and one of these years they are going to have winning record!

The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays, behind Christmas of course. Every year we go right outside the stadium and watch the fireworks with my mom's family. I really have a lot of favorite things about the summer time. I love going to the fair, playing at the pool, going up the canyon, and so much more.

Even though it's not one of my favorite things, how quickly life goes by...

.. it is one of my favorite things to enjoy every minute of it.
