BBQ at Woods Ranch with Friends

We decided to head up the canyon one night with friends for a BBQ, Fishing, and Smores!!
Maddux loved being outside exploring and was busy the whole time getting dirty, catching fish, and eating marshmallows. I love living in Cedar City during the summer time because of nights like this...

Maddux posing on a rock...I am lucky I got this shot right when we got there because he was way to busy for pictures after that.

A big tire by the picnic area for kids

The very best part of the night was when Maddux got to help reel in a fish...he LOVED it and he LOVED the "fishy" he kept saying "eyes" and trying to touch the fishes eye. We ended up just catching and releasing it and Maddux still is talking about how the
"fishy gone...bye bye"

4th of July Weekend

We were lucky to have Greg's parents come and visit us in Cedar City for the 4th of July!
Here is what we did while thery were here...
Fireworks in our favorite's tradition to watch them here
Maddux at the fireworks showing us how he closes his eyes...notice that he really just squints because he wants to see your reaction. He did better than expected with the loud fireworks.
We also went to an indoor swimming pool in St. George that is really kid friendly. Here he is floating..he was so relaxed in the pool.
This was his favorite thing at the pool it was a "Froggie" slide that he could do by himself. I think he would have gone down it a hundred times if he could have...he cried when we would take him away from it.
Loving doing "bubbles" with Grandpa in the back yard
Also, Greg and Ralph (the Harris Family Studs) ran in the Enoch Day's 4th of July Parade and did awesome! Greg finished 1st overall and won $10 and a 4th of July Decoration. Ralph also won $10 for finishing first in his age group.
It was a great 4th of July!

Almond Wedding

Recently Dyllan, the son of my best friend Kim got married in the Salt Lake Temple. Greg and I were able to go up to Salt Lake by ourselves for the weekend and attend the endowment and the wedding. It was so fun to be able to be a part of it.

Here is their Family Picture

Family Vacation

We decided to take a family vacation this summer to the beach. We rented a really cute condo on the beach and the three of us spent a week there. We went a few beaches, swam in the community pool, and spent a day at a really cool outdoor mall. It was relaxing and a lot of fun. It's the first big vacation we have taken since having Maddux. After a week at the beach house we visited Greg's parents for a weekend and were lucky enough to welcome a new niece into the family. Greg's sister Taryn had a baby girl. They named her Macy she was 6lbs. 11 oz. and is just the sweetest little thing. It was so much fun to be able to spend this time together relaxing and then end the weekend with family. Here is a little movie of our whole trip. Hope you enjoy!
