While we were away...

Ethan helping me give Merrick a bottle.
B chillin...
Twins hanging with cousin Jacob.
Kenzie's backflip caught midair.
Surfin on those great Lake Powell waves.
Girl Cousins... Nataleigh and Berkleigh.
They did this everytime we took them in the water. It just lulled them to sleep.
The girls on the tube... do you like the next one. Craig was trying to knock us off... but couldn't.
The girl ride was WAY more mellow than this ride I took with Tyson and Cameron. They are crazies! Not so mello.
Our Little Cowgirl.

The gang.
Playing footsies
Mom and Merrick!
Jen wakeboarding.
we went to some great places. Pictures to come of Austin, Texas and Scottsdale, Arizona. (Mom and Brianna... if you are reading this... can you send those pictures!?? Thanks!)

So we went to Lake Powell with Tyson's family. It was a blast. We floated, wakeboarded, explored, ate yummy food, played games, took tons of pictures, and went to bed and got up with the sun. Lake Powell is so relaxing and it is so fun to be with family.

The twins finally got to meet Aunt Megan, and cousins Ethan, Nataleigh, and Jacob. We had so much fun!

Harry Potter Fanatic

Brooke and I actually ..and finally.. buying the book.

Tyson and I with the claimed prize.

Brooke, Mackenzie, and I (They look pretty happy about being dragged to the freak show.)

The mob that wanted my book after I bought it.

So Harry Potter came out today... Saturday, July 21, 2007... Where was I at 10:00 pm last night, you ask? Well, I was outside of a Barnes and Nobles in Orange County wearing a geeky blue band waiting to get my last Harry Potter Book. It was INSANE! People were dressed up, screaming, and indepth conversations about the book. People went ballistic when the first book came out of the store. Yes... I am a Harry Potter Fanatic. I am not in denial. I am super sad that this is the last book, but totally excited to see what happens.

Thanks Mackenize, Brooke, and Tyson for coming with me. I dragged them to the party and they came willingly. (Probably to laugh at the freaks.) :)

Gettin' Around

Berkleigh is totally on the move. She sees what she wants and is starting to wiggle her way to that object. She isn't crawling, but she is getting the stance down and will seriously be crawling soon. Hopefully she won't crawl like me. I crawled with my bum in the air, my knees locked, my hands out for balance, and my head on the ground. I was always getting stuck under furniture and I had a bald spot from rubbing all my hair off. I walked super early because I realised my version of crawling wasn't getting me anywhere. We will keep you updated on the big day, but for now she will just wiggle till she gets what she wants and where she wants. :) Meanwhile, Merrick is taking the easy road. He will think about crawling after his nap.

Our Fifth Wedding Anniversary!!

We have officially been married for 5 years! July 12, 2002 was the day! I can't believe it. I remember when we were first married and we went to our first married ward, we gawked at people who said they had been married for 5 years. I thought they were so old. Does that make us old?

So I pretty much really love Tyson. I am so happy to be married to him, to have twins, and to be going through school with Tyson. I am a pretty lucky girl! These 5 years have been awesome... .and I know it will just get better. Lookin forward to the next 5!

Happy anniversary Tyson.

We were in AZ for our anniversary. We went to the restaurant that Brianna works at called Olive and Ivy. It is such a nice place. We ate dinner which was fantastic, and then we were told by Brianna to try the Strawberry Shortcake. (Brianna makes it.) So we ordered dessert, but when it came out, the waiter brought three different kinds of gelato and Tyson and I were thinking... "Uh, we didn't order this." Then the waiter put this long black rectangular plate in front of us with all different kinds of truffles and jellies on it, and it said Happy Anniversary in white chocolate. Brianna thanks! It felt so cool to know someone in the kitchen. What a great surprise.
