look who's 29...

On June 28th 2012, we celebrated my 29th birthday.  We didn't do anything too fancy, but Jordan and the kids did make me a delicious cake and gave me a bouquet of sunflowers.  I felt so loved!  Jordan and I also went out and tried a new Louisiana style restaurant, which was so-so.  We had fun at dinner, though.  There was a live band and we were able to bring home some free "mardi-gras" necklaces for the girls--which were a fun surprise for them because, well, they were sparkly!  Jordan did try his first and probably his last (too slimy) oyster during dinner, which was pretty funny to watch.  How blessed I feel for my sweet family and for all I have been given.  Here's to another great year!

payson grotto...

Also while visiting Utah during the summer of 2012, we enjoyed spending time with my sister and her family.  One of our adventures together included a trip to the Payson grotto.  This involved a nice hike to an isolated area that had a cavern with a waterfall flowing through the middle; emptying into a small stream below.
As hiking and water were both involved (not to mention, cousins!!) the girls were in "little-kid heaven".  We had a hard time keeping up with them!  Jordan carried Graham in a homemade sling, and baby was quite content during the outing--just like always!  He really is such a mellow little one.
