This weekend was one for the books. We always try to go on a fun family vacation during the summer and we decided to go up to Salt Lake and go to the zoo, cowabunga bay, and see the parade in Provo, UT. We had so much fun and Archer loved cowabunga bay! We went with my mom+dad, and my brother, his wife and their kids. There are so many pictures to post, because we really did have that good of a time. For one, I cannot believe it is already
July scratch that it is already the middle of July. Where is this summer going? We have been so busy with life that it has flew right past us. July is filled up with activities left & right, not to mention August is busy for us as well. All in all things are going pretty good. We still aren’t sure when or where we are moving to, we are still waiting for the programs to get back with us, etc. It really is so stressful not knowing where you are going in your life. It stresses me out daily not knowing exactly when we are moving, if we are moving or where we are moving to. Anyways back to the point of this post- the fourth of July is one of my all time favorite Holidays! I love celebrating America, freedom, BBQ’s, good food, friends & the warm weather.
We headed North bound on Wednesday. We stayed in Sandy, UT for the whole time being and it was a good spot to stay. On Thursday we went to the Hogle Zoo in Salt Lake City, UT. It was a pretty warm day but Archer did amazing. It was someplace that I always dreamed of taking my children so I am so grateful that I got to take Archer there. We had such a blast all together as a family.
The next day came and we hauled ourselves outta bed to Cowabunga Bay! It was such nice day and the park was filled but not overfly filled. We played in the water & Archer absolutely LOVED it! HE started to splash with his arms and he laughed, took a nap, had some of dad’s ice cream & just had fun. We took Kayzlee down way too many slides, laughed at so many fun things, ate pizza; ice cream; snacks; coke. It really was so much fun! T and I Accidentally got in line to go down one of the slides I swore I was not going down, but when it came down to it we both jumped on and went! It wasn’t too bad besides my swimsuit bottoms rode up my back revealing my bare butt cheeks… I bet that was quite a site to see.
The fourth of July came and we went to Provo, UT to watch the parade. This fourth was much better then last. I had a gorgeous baby boy to cuddle with during the parade and it was spent with family rather then friends. Family always is better in the end. Friends come and go but your family will always be there for you. We went back to Saint George that night and watched fireworks with Uncle Colten and our good friends, Ashley & Jordan. We have this new thing where we are balancing Archer wherever we go! It is so much fun because I take pictures and use the #balancingarcheraroundtheworld then I am making a chapbook just for him & wherever we balance him!
Last year at this time we had just found out that we were expecting a baby. I remember taking a pregnancy test and being so happy but nervous about welcoming a baby into our lives. I wouldn’t trade my handsome little guy for anything. He really does complete me in ways I never knew existed, I love him more then words can explain and I cannot wait to have more children & to watch Archer grow up being the oldest brother and taking care of them all.
We have been blessed beyond measure. Everything has fallen into place for us and we couldn’t be more thankful for our Heavenly Father and the blessings he has blessed us with. Life has taken a turn for the best and I am now surrounded by amazing friends who care for me and my family, amazing family who helps us with anything we need. Archer has the best aunts+uncles to look up to, not to mention amazing grandpas and an awesome grandma. Cousins who will help guide him in the correct direction. We spend our nights watching netflix and pigging out on popcorn, I spend my days taking care of my little guy. I really am blessed to be able to work from home & stay with Archer all day long. I love doing photography & I love all the doors it as opened for me. We really are thankful & blessed.
