bear lake

we spent last weekend up at the buchi's cabin in bear lake (thanks craig!). when i say we spent the weekend, i mean we drove up friday afternoon and drove back saturday afternoon. i'll admit i was a little stressed considering we ran out of clothes for lily due to countless "accidents." but it was still nice to get out and do something as our little fam.
saturday morning buz's dad, sister, and brother-in-law did a relay at the bear lake tri. this is how zoe hung out. what a trooper.
and lily collected rocks by the side of the road. hey, look at that, collecting rocks in mismatched stripes!! side note for taryn: that was not staged. it's meant to be, simple as that.
leigh coming in from the ride.
and a stellar jeanne. of course. sorry dave, no pictures of the swim since we're cheap and didn't want to pay the $3 to get in. seriously, who charges spectators at a tri?
then the rain started to trickle. good thing we had an empty trunk. it's not often we come across that!
down at the beach, little beckett who i just love.
look ma, no hands! don't mind the lean against her dad!
there's that smile again. but she loved her tour on the kayak.
and thought she'd practice rowing too.
thanks for the fun times!

the bird

buz's work treated us to an afternoon up at snowbird.
first time on a chairlift, lily was in heaven
and coming down the slide, with her arms up yelling "woooooooo"
she of course loved the inflatable slide and bounce house the best.
i love her sweaty face, fluffy hair, just bounced like crazy look.
sun in your eyes? nope, that's just her smile of choice. nice.
zoe wouldn't sleep the entire ride up. but the walk at the top rocked her into la la land.
lily and chloe wrestling. a pretty even match since they're both miniatures. i think chloe won. of course this happened while the mommys were playing and the daddys were watching the girls!
i love how both of their hands are in the momentum building position.
(that's what we say instead of cheese. you get a better smile that way, promise.)
chloe in front, lily in back, thrillseeking with their daddys.
and who can't resist a good ride on a mechanical bull? thanks for the pic honey!

not much

that's what we've been up to. not much at all. but just in case you all were wondering what it's like to be overwhelmed by the fact that your baby's almost 4 months and is definitely not a newborn anymore, here you go....
oh how i love her.

and she's happy
and i'm happy

that’s right, we decided enough is enough. the internet is back taking up too much of my time!!!

(if you're interested, i've updated a lot of posts...see below)

Helper Me!

The next weekend we headed to Helper for a good old fashioned family reunion! Color coordinated t-shirts, field games, good food, waaaaay too long tour of the junior high, you name it, we did it!

We were able to tent out on the Junior High Football Field! Here’s the story short and sweet:

Buz’s grandpa grew up in Helper. He played football his whole life, ended up playing at

BYU (go cougars!) and then on to the 49er’s. So, the Junior High down there named the football field after his grandpa. It really was so fun and the perfect place for a reunion.

smudge on the camera, not on her face!

Thanks Nick for putting it together, you did a great job!
