Acting half his age

A few reasons why I think my husband is a stud

He loves to run up mountains

He hikes over huge boulders

He wears shorts in freezing cold temperatures

110 degrees has nothing on this guy

He doesn't need any skis when he goes water skiing:)

He has run/hiked to the top of Lone Peak a bajillion times

He can still throw a football pretty far for an old guy;)

He drives down to Moab just to exercise

He's 52 and still going strong!

Happy Birthday Patrick
I love you!

Here's hoping by the time you reach 72 the rest of us will be able to keep up with you!

Jeepers creepers

Where'd you get those peepers?

I can remember this day like it was yesterday:)

Justin had been napping on my bed and instead of the usual routine of waking up crying for his next meal, I heard cute baby noises coming from my room. When I went in to check on him he stared at me with his big brown beautiful peeps and was grinning from ear to ear. I grabbed the camera and snapped this picture then plunked myself down on the floor at the edge of my bed where we spent the rest of the afternoon gooing and giggling at each other.... it was a good day:)

Even though Justin was a fussy colicky baby, he was also a smart, sweet, happy, smiley little guy who made me a Mother and brought a lot of joy into my life.

The colic eventually subsided but Justin's early traits have remained...he is still a smart, sweet, happy, smiley guy who brings a lot of happiness not only into my life, but our entire family's lives as well!
Happy Birthday Justin

I Love You!

Lake Pals

Since Jake & Karli are in Lake Powell this week and I'm not, I decided that the next best thing to being there was to look through old photographs from some of our past trips and reminisce. So this post is me reminiscing...out loud:) Oh and for a good laugh, click on the pictures to make them have got to see some of these facial expressions close up....HILARIOUS! My personal favs are #7 (funny) #12 & 13 (cute:)
