Cleaning up the play room!

Brinley decided to try and climb in the cubby! Then Holley wanted to try too!

Labor Day weekend camping trip!

We went for a drive, when it started raining, so we waited it out in the car for a while!


One of my favorite things, is when my girls cuddle up together to watch tv or a movie! I love it when they show their sweet love for each other!

Holley walking home after school!

I should have posted this closer to my first ride on the bus post, cause it was the same day, but it's a picture of her walking home after she got off the bus! I think it's a cute picture!

Guess who found Mommy's lip gloss???

Cute and Happy Brin!

Just had to post these especially cute pictures I took of Brin. These are actually 2 different days but the same dress! Maybe the dress just makes her especially cute!

Creatures on our door step!

This summer we found this baby bunny on our back door step it was so cute and so teeny! (It is next to a regular brick size paver in this photo to give you an idea of how teeny it really was.) Brin would point to it and say "aaaa coot!" It had an injured eye and we think it had been abandoned by it's mother.

Then a few days later we found a couple frogs on the back porch . . . . .

anyway it all made me start thinking of all the different creatures we have had LITERALLY on our doorstep, since we've been in this home! Where we live so close to the open dessert, there really have been quite a few. Here's a little list.

4 baby bunnies. + 1 in the garage (a couple weeks ago)
1 Tarantula
2 king snakes
4 LARGE Wolf Spiders (2 made it into the house when someone opened the door! egh!)
5 frogs
& COUNTLESS Lizards! (In the Garage ALL the time too!! One almost got in the house.)
We also have seen prints in the mud right out our back door, that we are pretty sure were javelina!

Anyway, I thought it was quite interesting to think back on, and who knows what may have been there that we just didn't see!

Summer Pics!

Here are some summer pics I never posted. I didn't really get very many good pictures, but thought some of you might be interested anyway.

Camping in Alpine
Brin napping in the tent.

Derek & Holley

Riding the 4-wheeler at the cabin
Brin was in heaven! Look at her just LOVIN it!

Dinosaur Park

Look at Holley's face! she did not like turning her back on the T-Rex!

4th of July Parade!

Brinley "tucking in" Skoshi with her own Blankie! Brinley was terrified of Skoshi when we first got to Utah, and was lovin her and giving her NO PEACE by the time we left! It was cute! I think my Dad got some cuter pictures of the 2 of them!

ROAD TRIP!!!! So nice when this happens!

playing in the water back in June! This is with the babysitter, when Derek and I were away at the husband and wife convention! (I still want to post a picture of us on the high ropes course if I can get my hands on one! We left our camera home but some friends got a couple pictures!)
