la nay ferme

I was so excited to learn about La Nay Ferme this week. I was bummed that Jacobs Cove was no longer here and even more bummed that a community that professes to eat "wisely" also can't support even one CSA. The farm is located by East Lawn Cemetary (better soil up there, maybe? bad joke. :0) in Provo. They've got partner gifts each week from local businesses and a local restaurant includes a dressing as well. Something I've never seen before in a CSA and I think it's rad. And hello? Edible flowers? YES PLEASE. They will also be doing Farm to Table dinners there this summer which I can't wait to try. Check it out and join!

so sweet

Professional pictures are something I really want to do better at getting. We did some trade with my friend Amanda last year and I finally got around to scheduling her. It was really last minute, which made it not stressful at all. I love them. What a great time in our lives. Our kids are still so little and so innocent.

little bunny tay tay

My little bunny Tay Tay turned 1 on April 27. She is our world the last year. We all love her so much. Cody says he doesn't know what to do because he want to eat her. I know how he feels, I just want to roll her in a ball and put her back in my tummy, because I can't get close enough to her. Every morning Justin gets her out of her crib (sometimes before she wakes up) and brings her in our bed with all of us. She crawls over us, sits (or stands) on our faces, steals our phones, kisses us and makes us laugh. The night of her birthday a huge windstorm came through, knocking over trees - very fitting for our "Tay Tay Tornado">. Taylor had two parties, this one was for my family, and the one with cousin Rusty is forthcoming. The theme of the party was, "Use whatever I have on hand" and it worked out pretty well! Photobucket This wall paper has been traveling around with us for 4 years, for now it served as the photobooth backdrop. Photobucket Party favors were flowers wrapped in burlap. The poster in from the Knoxville where Tay was born. Photobucket Instagram photos and my kitchen-aid with pansies. Photobucket Photobucket

south fork with gma nonnie

Photobucket A little Saturday morning hike with my mom and the kids. We built boats to float down the stream and on the way home got caught in the Utah Valley Marathon traffic, after 40 min it was apparant we were still an hour from the mouth of the canyon with 3 tired and hungry kids. I pulled into the closed off lane and went for it. Got pulled over a quarter mile from the canyon and got a lecture. So worth it.
