man weekend- neola

the second weekend in august, dallin, steve and travis went out and stayed at the old neola house and had an extended man date weekend. they had a lot of fun doing man things (boating and fishing), eating man food, telling man stories, and doing other mannish things.

a moose came after dallin while they were fishing!

relaxin' in jackson

at the beginning of august, we went up to jackson, wyoming with some good family friends- alana & steve with little gabe, and josh & audrey with sophie and izzy. josh and audrey we nice enough to share their family cabin with us and we had a great time!

the trip was much needed and the perfect break. (except for the part where dallin got sick on the way up, i spent one of the days very sick and then we got EVERYONE else sick too! sorry guys! we love you!)
thank you everyone for such a great time, and thanks mom and dad for letting us take your atv's!

i left my heart in flagstaff

for the 4th of july this year, we headed down to see dallin's brother's family in flagstaff. we had such a wonderful time!
it was the first long trip in the car with the girls, and dal and i were a little bit nervous, but the girls did so good! treats and toys definitely helped!



we had such a good time playing with ammon, jes, and emma.
ammon and dallin went rock climbing out somewhere on the way to sedona. they came back scraped, bloody, tired, and extremely happy.
jes and i took all the girls out to the "arts in the park" festival in downtown flagstaff. the girls had a good time rolling around in the jogger and emma's favorite part was all the belly dancing we got to watch!

we spent a lot of time just hanging out together and playing.

too tired to eat:

the girls slept in a little nest we made for them on the hotel floor:

and we took the girls swimming for the first time:

the day we drove back came way too soon. we wished we could have stayed with jes, am, and em for a lot longer (although i'm sure they were glad to get rid of us!)
thank you for letting us come visit!
