Just because

I really wanted to post tonight, but my camera is downstairs somewhere, and I'm not... So I decided that this post will be dedicated to my wonderful husband...Josh. Every Saturday, he is the one to wake up with Lainey and is so wonderful to take her everyday after work so I can have a little time to myself. Lainey was so excited that he was home today and she wouldn't even come to me... it made me a little sad, but I know she just needed a change! I couldn't have asked for a better husband! He knows me so much better than I know myself. When I'm down or just having one of those days, he knows exactly what to do to help me feel better. And when I can't figure out what I want, he can... he is so understanding, so caring, and so much fun! He really is my favorite person and my best friend. We are planning a trip to Vegas (courtesy of WorldMark timeshares, i.e. a two night trip because we went to a presentation and we have to go to another one down there) and St. George (Zion) in a few weeks for our anniversary and I am so excited to have a little vacation with just the two of us! Lainey is great and she is so much fun, but there comes a time... after a baby turns 1 I think... that a break from them is a good thing!!!

I am so grateful that Josh is a worthy priesthood holder and that he makes the Gospel and his family his priorities. The best thing about Josh (other than he is the best kisser ever!!!) is that I know he loves me no matter what... makeup or not, fat or thin, blonde or red headed... I know he loves me for me and I could not be more grateful for that!

WARNING: Its a long one!!!

Afer I finished uploading pictures, I realized that they are in reverse chronological order and I didn't want to move them around, so I'll tell the story in reverse! We had such a fun time in Tropic. Lainey and I both loved being down there and were grateful we could spend as much time as we did with my family!

This picture was taken the Sunday after we got home... she was so tired, she fell asleep with her Goldfish crackers in her hand! Lainey and Gramma April- look how good they match... and it wasn't even on purpose!


Josh took this picture... isn't it sweet? We went camping at Pine Lake on the 4th of July and Lainey loved being out in the wilderness. She had a good time collecting rocks and pinecones. When we were getting ready to leave, we had the doors open in the Jeep, and as we were loading in, we found a little line of rocks inside the door that I guess she wanted to take home!










This is another picture Josh took... The old and the new... We took the old one down for Lesha to use since she'll be 16 in January and we didn't really have the space to keep it up here...


4th celebration at the Tropic park

She sure loved that snow cone! She loved the big bathtub! We don't have one yet, but after this trip, I think we might have to get one!
July 3rd was my grandpa Art's 91st birthday (He's the one with the cane... his brother Al is the other guy...) They're both just a couple of 'old farts'! It was great to be able to visit them while we were down.

We went to the swimming pool in Parowan when we were there visiting Grandma and Grandpa Evans... It brought back alot of fun childhood memories!
Here, Lainey is flirting and waving to some boys... hmmm I wonder where she gets that from?!


videoI had tried several times to catch Lainey making the 'lamb' sound on video, and finally did! Logan and Lesha are raising lambs for 4H and Lainey loved them! The first minute of this clip is really the best part, but I think it lasts for about 2...

videoLike I mentioned earlier, Lainey loved the big bathtub! She would try to eat the bubbles by putting her face in the water... It was so cute!

Pictures for Dad

So we are in Tropic for the week... yes, again! I've got to get my fill before I become a full time teacher in August... Lainey went swimming for the first time today in a big pool and she had a blast! I was nervous to have her in so much water, but it was a lot of fun!

"No, No Lainey!" This is a naughty moment caught in picture... She thinks its funny to get into grandma April's plants and eat the dirt.
I thought it was adorable that she took her little beau-dog puppy toy to see the real dogs...
We've had a lot of fun so far and I'm sure I'll have more pictures to post in the upcoming days... Josh, we miss you and love you so much. Thanks for letting us have a little get-a-way! Kisses!
