Megan’s Birthday Party: Take 2


Megan really wanted to have a swimming party in Las Vegas for her birthday. We decided it would be a great idea to head down to Vegas and spend the Fourth of July there as well as have a party for her. Everything worked out just as planned!

We wanted to have the party at Adam’s parent’s house because they have a beautifully remodeled backyard and pool, but they were in Virginia so we decided to just have the party at Brother Joe’s house.

We had presents, BBQ, swimming, cupcakes, and a photo booth.  Every one had a great time!


Megan has been eyeing this particular Lalaloopsy doll since about January! She was so excited to get her.

So many cute kids. I can’t get over it.

Everyone had a great time.  Thank you Sarah V. and Mom M. for all the work you put into making her party great!  And thanks to everyone for the wonderful gifts and for treating our Megan so great!  She’s one special girl who is loved by so many.

Straight from Heaven


Welcome to the world Berlin Rae!  My brother Loren and his wife Sonya welcomed this absolutely perfect bundle on June 27th.  She weighed in at 8 pounds 4 ounces and was 20.5 inches long.  She is SOOOOO cute!

Berlin was born in St. George, Utah, and we were able to go and visit her during the Fourth of July holiday/weekend.  It was so fun to be able to meet her in the hospital!  She was just two days old!

A little piece of Heaven!

Even Jane was thrilled about the new baby

Megan was ESPECIALLY excited to hold and meet her newest cousin

When Berlin’s big brother was born, everyone was shocked when he arrived with bright red hair.  Then her sister arrived, and she had a TON of beautiful dark brown hair.  So when Berlin was on the way, we were all super excited to see what color hair she would arrive with.  Well…as you can see, it’s bright red!  Just like her favorite Auntie…(although, only one of us was born that way…I’ll let you decide which one of us I’m talking about…)

Speaking of hair, no I didn’t do mine that day. Who does their hair when they’re traveling? Obviously, not me.

Congrats Loren and Sonya!!!   You have a TRULY beautiful family!
