It was our anniversary the other week.  Our ninth anniversary.  Boy, things sure have changed.  Instead of doing romantic getaways we are enjoying the free entertainment of dead stuffed animals.  It also included and blow out from little brother in the parking lot that resulted in a team effort to clean child and car seat of orange poop all before the downpour of rain came crashing down on us.

Don't get me wrong, I do love every minute of it.  It's just so different than a few years ago.

Ogden Temple Open House


 Last week, we were able to go to the Ogden Temple Open House.  It was beautiful.  Thanks for inviting us Roxanne!

Last week was crazy.  We were going to Iowa to see my Grandpa before he died...then we turned around and then didn't go.  Then we were going to go.  It was just a hectic, sad time.  Walking through the temple brought some calm into the storm.  Once we got to the celestial room, I was overwhelmed with a sense of peace.  I knew everything was going to be okay, and that Grandpa would be home soon.

Love this little family of mine!

Bees Game

The Husband's office had their summer party at a Bees Game.  We'd never been to a game yet, so we were excited to go.

One moment she is quietly cuddling, only to turn into this crazy child whipping her head about.

She kept pointing at the sky and say "Airplane!"  I had to explain to her that dragonflies were not the same thing.

Luckily, it was a pretty cool night.  While we didn't get to stay for the whole game, it was still a fun family outing!

Welcome to the Selfie section of this blog.  Yes, Aiko really is that chubby.  Yes, little brother is that pale and smiley.  

Random photo after we got home. 

Yes, little brother can almost hold onto his bottle.  Adorable right?!
