^Nathan's 4th of July Package^

^We went to RMR for car racing and fireworks!  We had a ton of fun, and the people watching was amazing!^

Lynid found out how wonderful suckers are!

^Lyndi and Navy in their watermelon outfits!^

^I helped my mom with the youngest Magical Mystery Tour this year, and so I brought Connor along to help me!  It was so fun for me to watch how kind he is to his little cousins, and how much they look up to him.^




To my creative, amazing, beautiful, fun, kind, happy daughter...Happy Birthday!

Twenty-two years have gone by so incredibly fast, and you have made every day so much brighter. 

Thank you for being the best mother, daughter, sister, wife & friend on this earth!  And thank you for choosing to come to my house!

And...she's walking!

Brittani and Connor are teaching swimming lessons, so I get to hang out with this cutie every morning.  We go out on the deck and share a green smoothie and some oatmeal.  Life can't get much better than this!

One of the many things I love about Rick is that on Father's Day or on his birthday, he really could care less what we do.  It's freaking awesome!  I never have to worry if I got him the perfect gift and I never have to plan anything big.  This year the only thing he wanted for Father's Day was to see Lyndi!  Easy enough!  So we went up the the chalk art festival with Ryan and Andrea and their family, and then came home for dinner with Brittani, Cody and Lyndi.

Even though I don't make a big deal about Father's Day, I am so extremely thankful that Rick is the father of my children.  He is the most amazing dad.

Girls Camp 2016
Somehow I have been lucky enough to serve in the Young Women's program in our ward for the last few years.  It has been amazing getting to know these wonderful, smart, driven, kind, beautiful girls.  They teach me so much more than I could ever teach them, and they inspire me to try to be the very best person I can be.  I am so thankful for the opportunity I have had to get to know these sweet girls, and I can't wait to see all of the amazing things they will accomplish in their lives. 



To my hot dog song loving, fake laughing, best dancing, book reading, fun, spunky granddaughter...Happy, Happy Birthday!  

Thank you for making me a grandma.  Thank you for bringing so much sunshine into my world.  I am so excited to see the amazing person you are going to become.  I love you more than I ever imagined possible.  Thank you for choosing our family!

happy birthday, sweet Lyndi Ann

We went to the aquarium on Lyndi's birthday and she loved it!  I think her favorite animals were the penguins, but she was intrigued with them all!

After the aquarium we went to Cody's parent's house for Lyndi's birthday party!  It was an "Under the Sea" theme, and it turned out so so cute!

Brittani found a picture of the cake she wanted, and of course, we thought it would be so simple to make - no problem...about halfway through we had to call Rick in to bail us out!  It's a good thing we have him!

We were so excited when Lyndi went face first into her cake!  She didn't even need her hands!  It was the best!

Happy one, sweet girl!
