Summer Time!

Here are a few things that we have been up to lately…

Some of Micah's family came in to town for a family reunion. 

The kids played (or just ate) in the dirt,

climbed a net,

and picked the grass.

We got to go to Great Grandpa Hilton's house up Cottonwood Canyon and spend some good time with him. I LOVE his house. He lives right on the mountain side and his backyard is water running through rocks of granite. I got to bring some beautiful rocks home to use in my classroom. I'm so excited!

We spent a lot of other time with his family, but I didn't take pictures. 

Brighton has found a new favorite toy. He loves covering himself with dad's shirts and then getting his head stuck in the sleeve. It's so funny to watch.

We celebrated Father's day. He got a new drill and Texans hat (please let this year be a better season.) Micah is the best father! 

I really mean that, honey. I want you to know that we are so grateful for all that you do. Thanks for being a wonderful father, companion, friend, son, and confidant. I'm so lucky to get to spend eternity with you.

Lila celebrated her 3rd birthday and she got a fun tunnel on her actual birthday. She and Brighton had a great time breaking it in. It was bent before the first hour of using it was up. :)

I got to use my new mini-bundt pan. Red-velvet chocolate chip cakes. Yum!

I also got to go to my high school's marching band reunion. Yes, I am a band geek and I am proud of it.  Here's most of my family with our band director in the middle. It was good to see so many people. 

It's been a great beginning to the summer. I've really only had the last week off since I had tons of meetings the first two weeks, but it's still been a lot of fun. I look forward to the rest. 


  1. BAND4LIFE! What instrument do you play?

  2. I was on the drumline. I played bass. I've played the viola since sixth grade so when it came time for me to do marching band also, I needed to pick something I could somewhat easily learn. I loved it!

  3. Haha I love Brighton playing in Micah's shirts! So cute!
    Yay for summer!!!
