A New Perspective on Life...

A friend of mine posted about this woman on her blog, and she inspired me to do the is a must read! The author of this blog lost her baby girl to a tragic drowning accident in June of this year. She writes almost daily about her up's and down's, her good days and her bad days, and about her heartache and sorrow. She is a beautiful author and I found myself reading her blog for hours. She is an amazing woman, mother and wife! She is an inspiration to me in so many ways. Her faith is so strong and she has such an amazing testimony! If there is only one thing you get out of her story, it must be this....hug your loved ones, especially your little ones a little tighter never know what our Heavenly Father has in store for us or for them in the future to come. It definately gives life a new perspective! Oh and a's a tearjerker!

15 Months, going on 2 years!!

We got Kohen's pictures taken at Kiddie Kandids last week. I feel bad because I have been a total slacker! We haven't had his pictures professionally taken since he was 5 1/2 months old!! The pictures turned out really cute, but the photographer wouldn't believe me that he is only 15 months old!! She swore that he had to be at least 2, maybe even 2 1/2 years old!! I must admit that he looked like such a big boy standing up on the little ladder! But when we got the actual pictures printed, I realized exactly what she was talking about! He looks like such a big boy! It makes me so sad to think that he looks like a little toddler instead of my little baby!! Anyway, here are some of the pics. We did a few cowboy shots to give to my grandpa (he's one of those total cowboys who never takes his hat or his boots off). They turned out pretty cute with his little cowboy boots on...thanks to Angi for the boots!

This one of him standing up isn't my favorite, but I just love how he is standing! It makes me laugh!!

July Festivities

Well be prepared for a lot of pictures. I can't seem to get the stupid slide show to work!!
July was a pretty busy month for us! We went on many bikerides, I ran the Draper Days 5K, we went to 2 rodeos, we played with lots of friends, Ko got a summer buzz, and of course there were many fishing trips! Sadly we have yet to go boating this year, but hopefully we can squeeze a boat trip in just once before the summer ends! For the 4th we had a BBQ at Dustin's sister's house. They cooked us a delicious dinner and we had lots of fun watching the fireworks! April and I were a little on edge during the fireworks show...Dustin and Blair thought it would be a brilliant idea to try to shoot fireworks at eachother (imagine!)! Oh and did I mention that they were shooting off illegals?! I was just waiting for the cops to show! We didn't really do anything on the 24th because we both had to work the next day. But we went to the Draper Days rodeo the weekend before and then went and watched fireworks at the park with our friends Clark and Jami. We had a great month and I hope everyone had a great 4th and 24th of July! Oh and I forgot to mention that I went to a pretty crazy birthday party for my cute friend Holly! Happy Birthday Holls!
