Sophie is 4 Months Old

I can't believe that Sophie is already 4 months old! She is getting so big... I hate that it goes by so fast! She is really a happy baby! I'm holding her right now typing this & she is just smiling at me! She is starting to grab at things, especially her feet! She also sticks her tongue out constantly. She is a spit-up baby though. None of my other babies had this problem and it's sad because it stinks. Besides that & also needing a better sleep longer/eat less schedule at night, she is wonderful! We all love her to pieces & are so blessed to have her in our family! ***THESE PICTURES WERE TAKEN BY CHELSEA***

Memory Game

Here is a fun little game... leave a comment on my blog of a memory that you and I have had together. It doesn't matter if you've known me for a short time or a long time, anything that you remember! Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It is pretty funny to read the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you are playing and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. On your mark... get set... blog those memories!

Oh ya, and those of you who have known me for a long time - keep it clean.

Bear World

The next two nights we stayed in Island Park. The first day we drove to Bear World which is right by Rexburg. It was so much fun! You drive your car through to see some different animals (deer, elk, buffalo, etc.) & then you drive right next to the bears. We went on a tour where you are on top of this vehicle & then you get to feed the bears. It was crazy because they were so close that you could touch them if you tried.

At Bear World there are also a couple rides & then a petting zoo. We really had a good time there! If you are ever near Rexburg, take your kids there! They will love it!

(I forgot to mention before our trip Emma got an eye infection & then while on the trip both Sophie & I got it so if we look a little funny that is why.)

The next day we drove through Yellowstone & saw Old Faithful. We stayed at the KOA in West Yellowstone & went to the Yellowstone IMAX & later the kids went swimming. Yellowstone is beautiful!

Alpine Slide

The next 2 nights we camped at Flagg Ranch (AKA Mosquitoville). I have never seen or been attacked by so many mosquitoes in my life! Anyway, while we were there we drove into Jackson Hole & went down the Alpine slide. The girls loved it!

Granite Falls

We just got back from an 8-day camping trip and had such a great time! Our first 2 nights we spent at Granite Falls & it was absolutely beautiful everywhere! We relaxed, went swimming, & just really enjoyed the scenery!

The BEST daddy in the world!

I know that this is a little late, but I just wanted to say how grateful I am to have such a wonderful husband! I am amazed at how blessed the girls and I are to have such an incredible man in our lives! Brandon does everything for us! I love him so much!


Sydnee played on a little tball team this year. Madelyn was supposed to play but vetoed out of it the first game (not shocking). Sydnee had a fun time & is actually pretty athletic. It will be fun to see what she decides to do as she grows older.

Girl's Trip to California

In June all the women (plus Sophie) went on a trip to California. We had a blast shopping, eating, laying out at the pool, getting pedicures, going to the movies, & shopping some more! Thanks to my wonderful mother for putting it all together. It was so much fun! Also, did I mention how much I love my sisters?!? I can only hope that my girls have as good of friendships with each other as I have with my sisters!
