Oquirrh Mountain Temple

Last night Josh and I and Talon had the wonderful opportunity to go to the Oquirrh Mountain Temple open house. It just completely amazes me at the beauty and elegance of the temple. Now, more than ever, I just cannot wait for the day that our family can go there to be sealed for eternity. There is absolutely nothing more important than that! Hopefully it will be very soon that we will be going back to the temple. If you have not gone to this open house yet and you have the opportunity, definitely take advantage of this. You will not regret it!

Lava Hot Springs

This last weekend we took a family trip to Lava Hot Springs. Our day started really early to get there and ended really late coming home. We did all sorts of fun things like tubing down the river which we all ended up getting scrapes and bruises from. But they make for good stories. We also spent some time at the big pool with the water slides and diving boards. Talon did great considering he wasn't feeling too well. I just tried to keep him shaded and cool. Lava Hot Springs is definitely one of my favorite places to go! Can't wait to go again next year!!
Please don't mind me in the photos as you can see I am still trying to get some of this darn baby weight off.

I Need Some Advice!!

Okay, so we are going to be doing a road trip here soon to Missiouri! We are leaving on the 31st of this month and coming home the 9th of August. What I need advice about, is how do I do this with a nearly 4 month old baby?? So far our plan is to leave around his bedtime and drive through the night but this is not just a short little drive. So any advice that all you seasoned mothers could give me, would sure be appreciated. We are SO excited to be going out to Missouri finally to see family and let them all meet Talon.

100th Post!!

Yay I made it to my 100th post. So much has been going on around here. Talon is 3 months old and I have been having my sister take some pictures of him and they are turning out so cute. I will post them when I get them. Talon is constantly doing new things to remind me just how big he is getting. He laughs all the time now, best sound in the world if you ask me. Yesterday I had to take him to the Dr. because he had white stuff all inside his mouth. It turns out he has a yeast infection of sorts in his mouth. It is worse than it sounds. The dr. gave me some antibiotics to get rid of it and he will be good as new soon. And last night for the first time he slept all through the night. It was so amazing!! I hope this happens again. As if that wasn't enough excitement for me in one day he decided to surprise me again and roll over for the first time today. Oh how I love this boy!! He does something everyday to make me smile. This weekend we are off to Lava Hot Springs for some fun in the sun! I will post about that next week. Have a great weekend!!

Happy 4th of July!!

We love the 4th of July at our house. Our day started with Josh making Swedish pancakes/Crepes for breakfast. He made them red, white, and blue. They were delicious. Next up we had a picnic at the park with family and hung out there for a little while before we went swimming at my mom's pool. I always love swimming and I especially enjoyed it this time because I got a little bit of a suntan, finally! After that we went to some of our friends BBQ and had some really good steak. We hung out there for a little while before we went to my Grandma's house to have dessert and watch a little bit of fireworks. Unfortunately, Talon had reached his limit for the day so we weren't able to see the big display of fireworks. So maybe on the 24th he will be able to see his first fireworks. All in all it was a great day!

breakfast was delicious!

My little firecracker is going to be a thumbsucker.

Not quite sure why this picture is sideways, but it is so darn cute!

We really tried to get some cute family pics, but it is hard to get everyone to cooperate!

The picnic bunch minus Talon and me

Charlie even joined us for some of our festivities.

Just them being them!

I'm thinking he doesn't quite like the slides yet.

Day at the Zoo

Yesterday was my nephew Zack's 1st Birthday so to celebrate we took the boys' to the Zoo! It was such a great day to go. The weather was nice and warm! I hadn't been to the zoo probably since I was in elementary so I was kind of like a kid again. The only thing I wish could of been different is that Josh could of gone, but he had to work so I guess that means we will have to go back. Talon was so good at the zoo. He loved the animals. But not the snakes (Just like his mom) So we had a wonderful day. Thanks for having a Birthday Zack so I could get out of the house and do something fun.

He loved the zoo

Birthday boy in a birthday hat!

The adventures at the zoo tuckered him right out!
