Parade of Homes

My sister Brenna and I went to the Salt Lake Parade of Homes this year. There wasn't many houses that were that spectacular but alot of cute houses. The best part was the "Up" house in Herriman. The whole house was modeled after the movie, even the furniture. It was so cute!

4th of July

On the 4th of July we had a family BBQ and hung out at Justin's mom's house and watched fireworks from her yard. After the fireworks Justin turned his car radio on and all of the kids started dancing in the driveway.

It was a great 4th of July!

Camping Trip to Yuba

At the end of June we went to Yuba with Justin's family and his Dad. Our neices and nephews had so much fun on the tubes and making sand castles. We also went to this little snack house and had fried oreos. (the absolute highlight of our trip!) They were SO YUMMY!!! It is worth it to just drive down there to just eat the fried oreos.

Anyway, we tied some tubes together and laid in the tubes and floated around the lake all day. I loved just laying on the tubes and relaxing in the sun. Justin also went to this cliff area and jumped off. turns out the water was about 3 feet deep so he is lucky it wasn't too high. But it was fun and everyone had a great time together.


We have been boating a couple of times this year on our boat! On Labor Day we went out to Utah Lake and had a bunch of fun with Justin's sister Trisha, her husband Mike, my cute neices and nephew and Justin's mom Carolyn. Most of us took turns on the tube, but the best part was when Justin and I were in the tube together. We had so much fun and finally flipped over and now I am so sore! OUCH!

Nephew Bee's Game

Mid July, Justin's work gave him 5 tickets to the Bee's Game. They gave us dinner and treats and out in the field behind the game they had a little carnival where they were doing free train rides and face painting. We took my 3 nephews to the game andTeik is pretty young to enjoy watching the game so I took him on the train and to get his face painted. My other nephews are older and loved waiting for a fly ball to come into the stands where they could catch it. Tyson was almost lucky enough to catch a fly ball but missed so I went and bought them all a ball so they could take it home with them. I love going to Bee's games because it reminds me of when went to the Yankee's game with my dad when I was younger.

Baseball games are always a good time!

Dance Off

In July we had our oldest neice Morgan for a sleepover and we had a great time. We went to the movie Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer. It was so cute Morgan wore her cute Snuggi into the movie theater and snacked on these litte fizzy soda candies.

After the movie we went and grabbed some Fazoli's (by Morgan's request) and then went home. When we got home we baked some sugar cookies and turned on the radio. Morgan is a great dancer and decided to show her uncle Justin some moves. It was so cute watching them do a dance off.

Now every time we see Morgan now she challenges Uncle Justin to a dance off.

Emmie's Baby Shower

On August 20th, I was able to plan and host my first baby shower for my cute friend Emmie. I made some good treats, a diaper cake and some baby sock flowers. Instead of playing baby shower games I decided it would be more fun to decorate onsies for baby Chloe. We all had a great time, Emmie got some cute stuff and we all can't wait for baby Chloe to get here!!
