calley in the ville!

My sister-in-law Calley came out to witness for herself just how AWESOME our days are in Knoxville. I'm talking extreme fun ALL. THE. TIME. PEOPLE. Haha, hopefully Calley wasn't too bored by the end. Here's a little vid to document the fun. Thanks for coming Calley!

pants

We are addicted to these baby pants. They are all the rage amongst the wives, even the ones with no kids! They are just too much fun. Here are a sampling of some other pants, mostly by Jess.

sweet baby on a sweet blanket

My great grandma Anderson (my mom's maternal grandma) made this quilt for me when I was a baby. I love the colors and the little french knots in each corner. I also love taking pictures like these of babies so show how much they wiggle in the space of a few seconds. I wish there were some sad faces too because their emotions change just as fast. Happy! Sad. Scared...Happy again! Cry! Content...Mad! Smile!

midsummer visit

At the end of June I was able to go back to visit Utah for a few days with just Taylor. Jess and some of the other wives were supposed to tend Cody and Ellie, but it ended up just being Jess so a HUGE thank you to her! It was nice to have some time with the baby without Elle and Cody squeezing in between us. She did great on the plane and I stayed with my mom and dad which was really nice to be able to hang out with them just like the good ole' days. I also got to go running, shop and see friends and BBQ and sit in my cozy little house for a few minutes while I visited Emily and her kids who are renting our house for the summer.

Friday was spent up the canyon where my dad and I rode South Fork, filling our water bottles up at Big Spring. My mom tended Taylor at the trailhead. It was real purty!

My dad looks almost as cute as Ellie in these flowers!

After the ride we got a sandwich at Sundance and enjoyed the scenery. I love the new event center they built!

The rest of the trip was spent seeing family. All three of my grandparents are aging quickly and I wanted to make sure they saw their newest great-granddaughter.

Sunday I got to meet Ashley's baby, Rusty, whom they blessed. Taylor is two weeks older than Rusty. I love cousins!

I've missed the 4th of July festivities for the last four years so I made sure to visit the booths (where we used to have our own booth with High Country Home) and my dad and I rode our bikes to the Stadium of Fire. It was fun to have so much one on one time with my mom and dad. And I'm pretty sure my mom loves Taytay!

I came home from Utah on the afternoon of the 4th. Jess took the kids to some festivities in the morning and we had a pool side bbq and the most of the office gathered for our own firework show that night!
