Parade! Parade! Parade!


These are my two darling nieces! Saylor and Gabby!

The whole gang!

My Beautiful Sissy's!

Beautiful Jan!

Beautiful Summer!

SOOOOO many women, my poor daddy!



This was a wonderful day! My family didn't know that we came back from Texas! We knew they would be sitting at our gas station to watch the Spanish Fork Parade so we showed up that morning and asked if there was room for us too! Mom and Daddy shed some tears and couldn't believe that we were actually home! It was a special reunion and we were DEFINITELY excited to be home in our little house and around the ones that we LOVE!!

Bridal Veil Falls











While Aly was in town we wanted to spend as much time with her as possible!! :) We trekked up to Bridal Veil Falls with her three boys! I have lived in Utah my entire life and I have never been up there before, it's pretty sad I know! It was soooo beautiful but the water was FREEZING! I didn't know water could be that cold! We had so much fun and the weather was just perfect!!

Spanish Fork Rodeo!





There is no better way to celebrate coming home than to attend the Spanish Fork Rodeo! It was such a wonderful night! We had a blast with the Dart clan! Aly (Mike's sister) was in town from Colorado and it was such a special treat to spend time with her! We had driven 18 hours the night before and got home at 4 in the morning but there was no stopping us once we crossed that Texas border, only happiness was in our future! There was no looking back and we are so grateful to be home!

There is nothing like ROSA'S!




There was NOT much that we liked about Texas, in fact you could not pay me to go back. But there was one thing that we enjoyed, it was a little Mexican Restaurant named Rosa's! It was super cheap and it had the most AMAZING food ever. We loved loved loved Taco Tuesdays!! We still crave it all the time but I would rather be here in Utah, I can settle for Costa Vida or Cafe Rio! :)

Gotta LOVE Fifa!!








To blow of some steam in Texas the boys would play soccer!! It was a blast to watch them and it was hilarious to see how competitive they are with each other!! I love my Cristiano Ronaldo! :)

Turning 21

















It has been a LONG time since I have updated our little blog!! WE have had a BUSY summer full of the unexpected!! While we were in Texas we celebrated my 21 Birthday! It was soooooo fun and for the first time, when people asked if I felt older - I honestly did. Since there was NOTHING and I mean nothing in Odessa, it was a simple Birthday filled with the people I LOVE! There is nothing better! I went to lunch with all my girls at Olive Garden, DELICIOUS! Then My Sweeheart took me to dinner and a movie, wonderful. We saw Inception, which was an outstanding movie!! Then as the night came to an end, Lu and Steph made the day special! They made Pina Coloda's and a beautiful birthday cake!! It was a day full of love and happiness. I could not ask for better friends, or a better more perfect Husband. The only thing missing was my wonderful family. They were very much missed on my special day!! I am very blessed and I am so grateful for everything!
