Summer 2018 family pictures!

Untitled  UntitledUntitledUntitledUntitledUntitled UntitledUntitledUntitledUntitledUntitledUntitled

My sis so graciously took our family pictures for us while she was visiting this month and I just love them! These are probably some of my favorite family pictures to date :) I love the colors and the simplicity of everything and I immediately printed them out and hung them in our house because family pictures become dated so quickly! You really gotta show them off before they seem outdated, am I right?!

And I edited these differently than I've ever edited anything. I normally don't like grainy-ness but I thought I would switch it up a little bit.

Thanks Marie, for taking these. You are the best!!

Crew's first day of nursery


Crew was so cute on his first day of nursery. We asked him "Do you want to go to nursery? Do you want to play with friends? Do you want to play with toys?" And he nodded enthusiastically! We walked right in and started playing and never even looked around to see if I was going to stay. And that was that! He is so big already! And so much like his brothers; no hesitation whatsoever going into nursery. I think he felt so happy that he finally had something to do other than sit with me in primary!

I love that sweet boy so much. And that sweet face. The cutest ever. I'll never understand how I got such cute kids. ♥

Easter and Conference in Gig Harbor!


We drove over to my parents' house to spend conference and Easter weekend with them. Steve stayed for the weekend and then I he flew home so that the rest of us could stay for the whole week since it was Cole's spring break! We packed a lot into one week! Park play dates, walks through the mossy woods, shopping, children's museum.

And at the end of the week Juju had her baptism. Unfortunately I had to stay home with Crew who caught a bug from the children's museum the day before. I was really bummed to miss it but he was so sick and we did not want to get any of the other kids sick!

I'm always so happy when my boys can spend time with their cousins! They are so lucky to have so many fun cousins to play with on both sides of the family! ♥

Is it Spring yet?


It's that time of year when you're just ready for it to be spring already. You can feel that it's almost here but it's just not quite there yet. So you hold on to the things that make you happy during this cold time of year!

I don't want to forget how Crew would always chant "ho ho ho" in the bath when he put all the sudsy bubbles on his chin once the bath got going. I don't think I taught him that; it must have been the boys! And I think that first picture is likely documentation of their last bath of all three of them together. Cole mainly takes showers now and doesn't bathe with the others anymore. They just keep growing up.

And I never want to forget that cute checkered fleece suit on Crew. He practically lived in that thing and it was just so dang cute on him. He won't be able to wear in next winter because he hardly fits into it anymore. Isn't it interesting how your throat gets tight when you think about them not being able to wear certain articles of clothing anymore because you know that it means that they're growing up? But at the same time if they were to actually suddenly stop growing that would be even more heart breaking? Life is just that way I guess. ♥

Valley View Ward talent show!

Just reliving the good old days at our BYU 30th singles ward 😂 (10 years ago now!! Wow!!) We got talked into doing this tonight at our ward's talent show. Maybe when we do this again in 10 years Steve will beat me then 😆

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Skiing at Lookout!


It was Cole's third time ever skiing and he did so great! What I loved about seeing him up there on the slopes was how he was never afraid! Well, I loved & hated it at the same time because he was fearless and would do all these crazy things haha. While Cole was at his lesson, Steve and I were able to get some one on one time skiing together. Like a date! It was fun. I love doing stuff like that with Steve ♥

We won't be back on the slopes until next winter so I hope that Cole doesn't forget all he's learned!

Here are some videos!
