1 Year Old

While Dallin's family was still in town and we had some family friends visiting, we decided to celebrate Olivia's birthday. We had a BBQ, went swimming, opened presents, and ate cake. I had a hard time editing the amount of pictures to put on here so beware...

Before the party even began, Olivia and her cute cousin Max found their own little party. They spent 20 minutes playing in this puddle. I guess they didn't know we were just about to go swimming.

 I have no idea what they were all looking at, but it must have been interesting.

 Olivia sure loved having her cousin Max around. Every once and a while she would go up to him and just lay her head on him (her way of giving hugs).

 Here is Mr. Max, he thought this was the funniest thing.
 Here is Olivia and her uncle Austin. He is now in the MTC in Provo, UT, preparing to serve the people in the Philippines.

 Abi and Teresa were visiting for Austin's farewell. We were so glad they were here to celebrate with us.

It was then time for presents and cake.

 Olivia wasn't a huge fan of the cake. Max tried to show her how it was done.

Thank you everyone who celebrated with us and bought gifts for Olivia. She is one lucky little girl to have you all in her life.

We're back, but not back in Florida

So the last two months have been some of the busiest, most stressful, most emotinal, exciting couple of months of my life. I'll start at the beginning.

At the beginning of June my family did a small family vacation. We all wanted to get in one last vacation as a family before we all went our seperate ways. We drove up to north Florida. First we went para sailing (which I don't have any pictures of since they somehow disappeard from my camera). The next day we all did a ropes course.We then headed home and went rock climbing.Inbetween we went swimming, out to dinner, played games, and mainly just had a blast!

As soon as we got back, our second "vacation" started when Dallin's family came into town. We had a great time hanging out, going to dinner, the beach and the water park.

Olivia and her cute cousin Max. We had the most fun just watching them run around and play with each other.

More to come
