Lake Powell...again

Last weekend we did a quick trip to Lake Powell. We packed a lot of fun into two days. We hiked to the top of hole in the rock(which I've never done before), saw Rainbow Bridge, played in Escalante, cliff jumped, swam, camped.....etc. September is the best time to go to Powell. The weather isn't too hot and the water is still warm. Thanks Mark and Teri for taking us. We had a great time!

Happy Birthday Ryker!

I can't believe Ryker is four years old today. Ryker is seriously the coolest kid ever. Here's a few of the many things I love about him:
-He talks nonstop to anyone who will listen.
-He makes friends everywhere we go.
-He makes me laugh hard every single day.
-He's so sweet! I trained Ryker (and I encourage all of you to do this with your children) to tell me I'm pretty and skinny when he was little and he still tells me those things along with "Your the best mom in the whole world." I haven't told him to tell me these things in a really long time, but he still does and most of the time it's out of the blue.
-He's the best big brother to Gage.
-He's not afraid to try new things.
-He is such a happy and excited person almost always.

We love you so much Ryker!!
