Summer 2012 part 1.

This is going to be a LONG post filled with some darling photos. It is so fun to look back! They might be scattered around & i'm not quite sure the timeline on a few so here we go!!!
These are a few favs from the 4th of July!!! Loving my man with me... Brayker & Tagg enjoying the parade! And of course, DON PEDROS! How could we not?! :D

Jackson Hole 2012!!! Seriously... THOSE BOYS THOUGH!!! I can't even stand it! <3 p="">
Raspberry Days! Brayker got a new frog! Yes, we bought a frog. If memories serve me right, he only lasted a few weeks & I turned it loose outside.
Grandma Reta bought a lakehouse... It doesn't look like much now but here in '16 it is newly remodeled & AWESOME!
This is a treasured memory! Grandma's 90th Birthday! We went to Salt Lake & stayed at the new Gateway! I miss Gran so much & think of her everyday... We went to eat at the Cheesecake Factory & the waiters & us sang Happy Birthday... Grandma started crying & so did most of the rest of us and after we got done singing Laurie looked around at all of us and asked why everyone was crying?! We have all grandma's gene's... See someone crying, we cry. Laurie is a wonderful addition to the family & we are glad Dean found her!!
Fair & Fish Pond! The kids LOVED it!!
ZOO Day!!!

Throwback Thursday: Engagement Post

I'm starting the long process of finding blog-worthy moments & ran across our engagement day... I don't remember if I have touched on that on the past or not, but it is worth the memories that flood my mind of that day! It was the Testicle Festival in Woodruff, June 2007. Jade had to rope in the Slack in Evanston earlier in the afternoon & after he got done I was freaking starving. I wanted to go get something to eat, & Jade was really wanting to go back to Woodruff... So after pouting for a minute I agreed. ;) We got there a few minutes before the auction was set to start so we visited a little & then during the auction... Geo Peart asked me to come carry a gun around for everyone to check out, and while I was walking it around I heard Jade take the mic.... I had NO IDEA!! My knees went weak & I remember Craig Hoffman taking the gun from me & I walked up by Jade. Seriously, me ears were ringing & I couldn't focus on one thing he was saying... So when he stopped talking, I didn't hear if he'd asked me or not so I said, "What should I say?", he smiled and said whatever you want so then I said YES! Best decision of my whole life! I love him more than anything & he still makes the happiest girl in the world. Love you Jader. Forver & ever.

Alright... shame doesn't even begin to describe the feeling I have when I checked out my blog for the first time in FOUR YEARS!!! What????? Needless to say, we have missed lots & lotzzzzzzz of milestones. It is my goal to start keeping up on the "going ons" of our life, but I will try to touch on some of the BIG things we missed. I hope I do them justice. Just a rough draft on a few big things.
-I have now lost all of my beloved grandparents. :( I miss them dearly & can't wait to see them again.
-Laney May, my little dolly was born on August 2nd, 2013.
-The Bear Lake Rodeo was born in the Summer of 2014
-The Bear Lake Rodeo died after the Summer of 2015.
-Jade won 4th at the big ropin' in Oklahoma City. $25,000!
-The XX Trucking company began in 2015.
-My sweet little Brayker graduated Kindergarten & 1st grade. No way I have a 2nd grader. I refuse to believe it....
-Jade & I are working on going to the temple once a month in 2016 & so far we have succeeded!!

Like I say, rough draft. Many FUN & wonderful memories in between.... I'm so grateful for this life & the chance I have to be a wife & mother. It is trying and crazy at times, but I would not change one darn thing.
I love my husband now more than ever. I find something new that I love about him everyday and I swear I couldn't be happier. Our love life is amazing and September will be our 9 year anniversary! Can't wait for the big 1-0. We are supposedly going somewhere amazing. ;)

Well, that is it for now. I will try to gather some photos & thoughts together & get started on this fun project!!!
