Hotel fun...

We dropped the boys off at an "Especially For Youth" camp. Gotta get a little swim time in while we're at it.

Beautifulness...

This world is a gosh darned beautiful place, and if you don't see God in this photo...you need your eyes checked.

Eat your heart out...

I know that a sweet tooth is supposed to be a bad thing because there's this connotation floating in the air that we will get fat because of it, but you know what? I love my sweet tooth and life would be incredibly boring without it. 




Baseball...

Now this a team to fear. Especially those skinny legged girls. They'll crush you cold.

We had a blast playing baseball this weekend. There were some good and not so good moments. All the testosterone amongst the boys and Chris while competing can get a little ugly at times. But all in all, it was worth every second and memories were made.

Austin turns 17...

This boy turned 17 years old. This is a big year. It means in one year he will leave for a mission. This means I have him in my home on a permanent basis for a very limited time frame. This means every time I get upset or angry with him I'll feel major mom guilt because he's leaving me soon. 

I can't say enough how proud I am of him. He has a 4.0 GPA for his latest term at college majoring in science....SCIENCE. That dirty "science" word is no joke. It's some tough stuff and he's been very dedicated. 

We love our little boy. And yes...he will always be my little boy.

Daddy daughter dance, 2017...

Daddy daughter dance. Every girl who gets this opportunity looks forward to it. I remember going to a daddy daughter dance when I was 11 years old or so and I still remember it 28 years later. Why is it so special? It's with the man whom you know will always love you no matter what. Who will lift you up even when life sucks. That one guy who from the beginning (literally) molds your self worth at all those tender ages where it's so necessary to be loved. 

Chris got lucky and got to take not one but TWO lovely girls out on the town. I'm sure it's an evening they'll always remember....
