a family get-away
We got a special deal at a local waterpark hotel through Living Social that we had to use by Labor Day. We cut it to the last minute and dragged…
some random thoughts (and a sunrise) on a Wednesday
Both of my girls both trudged off to school for the first time, together, in a long time on Monday morning. We have been in hybrid mode all of January,…
July little things
(I’m slipping this in WAYYY after June, but love to have it here to document!) June was filled right up with family and Newport and Utah. We started out in…
A Quick 15-hour Layover in Taiwan
Dave and Max both spent two years as missionaries in Taiwan, so we loved having a 15-hour layover there to explore.
January 2015 little things
We started out January still kind of shell-shocked that we were HOME. We hit the temple straight away (no temples in China) and I loved spending the morning with these…
sanctifying as we “look back,” 2021 in review
When I was a young mom, frustrated up to my eyeballs trying to teach my kids to do their jobs (oh you young moms, that can be a thankless job,…
I didn't even know Grace played the flute. Man, we need to live closer to you guys. We're so excited for Bear Lake.
I just love your posts. Each one is like a little dessert. When I have a bunch of new blog posts to read, I always save yours for last.
Have a great day!
love and miss you guys so so so !
these are such beautiful photos!
I can't get over how cute you & your kids are!
I know this is random but where did you get your brown leather ottoman? I've been looking for one just like it and your help would be great. Love it!
How fun to see all these wondrous pictures! "Almost" as good as being there!
My family is going to be in Bear Lake for 3 days in June. We don't all live near each other and so I wanted to surprise my parents and get family pictures while there. Nothing fancy at all just one big group picture. Not sure when you'll be there or if you'd even be interested in the little side job but I'd love to "chat" with ya and see if we're there at the same time. If you have a second to email me that would be great. email@example.com
You truly inspire me! I love how present you are in the moment with your children. Thanks for sharing a glimpse of your lives with us 😉
Love all of it, but man oh man do I love that Thomas Edison quote!!
Just a random comment- you mentioned Lucy loving the book "monster at the end of the book." I just checked out a book from the library for my son called "there are cats in this book." It reminded me a lot of the grover book. I bet she'd love it!
I love the photo of Lucy reading by the school bus. SO, so cute. This mom gig sure is busy, isn't it? 🙂
Can you recommend any good books for a 10 yr old girl? I see your girls reading away, and we are always in need of good books around our house.
Wonderful pictures! Thank you for sharing!!
I love the picture of Lucy reading by the bus. What a sweetie!
Thank you for sharing these moments, Your posts always make me feel good and smile.
Such bright and cheery photos of your precious family….love this post!
I found your blog from bycommonconsent's post about children's modesty. Can I just say that your blog and family give me hope for the LDS church? I have struggled with my testimony for 5 years, and I worry about my two very young babies growing up in what I feel is an oppressive culture, especially to girls. But your life gives me hope that maybe my kids CAN grow up Mormon and happy inside, that they aren't mutually exclusive. Thanks for re-lighting my hope.
Where did you get Grace's striped skirt from?
