"The trick is to enjoy life. Don't wish away your days, waiting for better ones ahead."
-Marjorie Hinckley

A few years ago when my Grandpa passed away, my Grandma moved in with us. It was such a special time, because my siblings were married and I was the only child living in the house. I watched her heart ache for her sweetheart every single day. Although they didn't have much, they had it all. Their marriage was solid gold. Brad was serving his mission at the time, and my Grandma just adored him. We talked a lot about Brad and Grandpa, it was this strange thing that we could relate with.. Being distant from our sweethearts. She taught me a lot of life lessons, but I will always remember her holding my hands, looking me in the eyes and saying "Enjoy him while he's young."

Lucy's First Rollercoaster

My brother invited us to Lagoon for his birthday and it was way more fun than I had anticipated! We spent most of the day over in "Kiddie Land" because it was way more funny to watch our babies go on rides, than actually go on any. I seriously cried because I was laughing so hard! However, I did ride one of the bigger ones and it was a BAD IDEA! I seriously almost threw up.. Brad calls me a "Grandma", but I can't help that I get so sick! I think this was the first time that he could really tell that I'm not just a baby. ;) Towards the end of the day we took the little kids on the Tilt-O-Whirl and it was AWFUL. I think I'll have Mom guilt forever for that one! Lucy cried the whole time.. That ride is NOT meant for babies! She was also pretty unsure about her first little roller coaster -- I wish that I had a selfie stick for that one! Hahaha I hope we haven't scared Lucy away from theme parks, because we are Disneyland fanatics. Our kids will have to love theme parks if they like it or not. ;)

My Happy Place

This summer, I'm trying to spend less time behind a screen and as much time outside as possible! I've eliminated the need to see ALL the posts on my instagram feed EVERYDAY. It's so easy for me to get caught up and waste so much time scrolling a feed! So I've decided to put an end to it, and it feels good. Tonight we rode our bikes down to the lake. Whenever we take Lucy down there she wants to swim! She's such a fish. I forgot to bring a swimsuit so we just stripped her down to her diapie. ;) Simple nights like these, are my true and complete happiness. No rush to get anywhere... Just riding along and enjoying each others company. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy traveling.. But there really is nothing like home. This is my happy place!

to the mountains we go

Last night we got away to the mountains. There is something about the fresh air, that I just love... Even though sometimes it makes me sneeze (I accidentally sneezed in Brad's face during this shoot hahaha sorrrrry) Lucy is at an age right now where she is SO curious. It makes the simplest things so fun. I love watching her explore and learn! Constantly pointing with that little finger and saying "Oooooh!". EVERYTHING is interesting to her. She's obsessed with Brad, and laughs at anything he does - According to Lucy, every animal says "Wooof Woof" - and She also is really into kissing right now, which usually results in boogers and droll all over my face. Hahah. That girl.

We rarely have photos of the three of us in a photo together, so it was so nice of Alisha to offer to take some pics... Thanks Alisha!

Burgers and Boards

One of my favorite things to do is watch Brad skate, but I haven't done it much since Lucy was born! I just feel like babies and skateparks don't mix... Haha! Annnnd she is such a free spirit now, that she would probably run around and get knocked over by some kid on roller blades. We pulled over and had a parking lot all to ourselves, and Lucy's eyes lit up the second Brad jumped on his board!
