How We've Spent Our Summer So Far..By Max and Ezra

We've been swordfighting,
building boats (Max insists on being Nephi and Mom has to be the mean brothers),
napping (notice how GIGANTIC Ezra is getting!)
jogging (when Mom feels up to pushing 70 lbs of boys in the heat),
riding the spaceship,

lots and lots of swimming,
and general mischief and mess-making.

Happy Summer!!!

I Won!

Thanks for the votes! I won the quiet book- what a great Anniversary present! We were married 4 years ago today in the Jordan River Temple. Although we've only spent one anniversary together, we're already planning our celebration next year (rest assured it will include steak).  

Spending time apart has added a unique dimension to our marriage that I'm grateful for.  I can't say I'm grateful we're not together, but I am thankful for the experience of realizing how much we love and need each other.  As cheesy as it might sound, I really have learned to be thankful for every single moment we have together.  We're half-way through this deployment and we can't wait for our family to be together again.

Calling all family, friends, and anyone else who cares about my sanity at church...

Hi. This is me shamelessly requesting you click here (you'll have to scroll down) and vote for me to win a quiet book give-a-way my crafty friend Anna is doing. If you've been to church with us, you know how much I'd love to have a quiet book as a new trick up my sleeve. Thanks for humoring me by voting! Let me know if I can ever return the favor.
