The Picnik Table

Alli just started unlocking the back screen door and going outside to the back yard this week. She'll just randomly go out there, sometimes without me even knowing. This particular time, I found her dancing on the table in her underwear. She had also gone out a couple times butt naked! She is quite the girl lately.

Kangaroo Zoo

We've been togoing to Kangaroo Zoo a lot lately. It's Alli's new favorite place to play!

Thirty Something...

I thought Josh would appreciate the Camo border =)

Just wanted to wish Josh a HAPPY 31ST BIRTHDAY! (yesterday) We didn't do much. I made him his favorite dessert which is lemonade ice cream cake and then we watched a red box. My kind of night =) No seriously, we love cuddling up on the couch and watching a movie. It's one of our favorite things to do after Alli goes to bed!

I love him more and more as each year goes by, and I am so proud of him! He is very good at balancing work, time with me and Alli, date nights, his hobbies, and letting me have time for myself. Oh and he does NOT look like he's 31 right?! What can I say, he ages well.

Love you Josh, Happy Birthday- XoXo!

Daddy Daughter Date

While I was working last weekend, Josh and Alli had a lot of fun together! They went to a Sheepdog thing at Thanksgiving Point, and then they went to Shrek 4. She just loves her Daddy, and I'm glad they get to spend lots of time together when I'm gone.

She loves horses, and from the looks of it, she was not afraid of these horses one bit!

Talking to some lady with her Sheep dog. She's pretty friendly and is not afraid to strike up a little conversation with anybody- hmmm, I wonder where she gets that from?! That would be Josh for sure =)

At the movie theatre throwing things in the fountain, she loves to throw stuff in the water.

I also took her to Kangaroo Zoo last week and she loves that place, and was sweating from playing so hard when we left. She keeps saying "Roo, Roo?" She already wants to go back. She likes to go, go, go! But that's good because so do I, I hate just sitting home.

Furthermore, why the heck did it SNOW and it is almost JUNE?!!!

Good Stuff

COCONUT M&M'S. Hello, can we say Heaven? I just found them yesterday FINALLY- don't worry that I had been searching everywhere for them! I mean it's two of my favorite things- coconut and chocolate combined, what's not to like? Only problem is, they are limited edition so they won't be around forever. Guess I better stock up!

Also, lately I've been watching Giuliana and Bill! Giuliana you might recognize from E news! I love her. Bill won the 1st ever Donald Trump "Apprentice." They got married and now have a show together. Just one more show to add to my list of favorite shows.

Roxberry. There is a new one that just opened close to me so I've been there a couple times to get a smoothie and they are very delicious! I will definitely be back often I'm sure.

Power Pump class by Lori at Gold's Gym. It's a toning/cardio class I've been going to on and off and I love it. Tuesday's class kicked my butt in gear. I can hardly walk down the stairs or lift Alli up. I am SUPER sore but I love feeling that way.

A little Snip

Alli got her hair trimmed and I can't believe how much better it looks with just even a little bit taken off. I probably could have done it myself, but I'm too scared. They did her hair it cute little braids afterwards, she loves going to Cookie Cutters.

This was taken a couple weeks ago. I had made chocolate pudding for her and she loved it, but it was very messy as you can see!

These are just sweet I think. I have a gazillion sleeping pictures of Alli but I just love them.

Anyway, life is good! I'm looking forward to lots of rodeos (I Love them), camping trips, 4Th of July, Lagoon, BBQ's, and whatever else this summer might bring! Last weekend we made tin foil dinners and cooked them at the park with some friends and it was really fun, however I forgot to take any pictures. I guess sometimes you just need a camera break.

I curled Alli's hair for church and I thought it looked so cute! Her hair is getting so long and I love that she'll let me do things to it.

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all of you Mom's out there! I am so lucky and blessed to be a Mom and experience motherhood. I LOVE being a Mom, it is by far the best thing ever despite any bad or stressful days along the way. I wouldn't trade being a Mom for anything.I feel so lucky to be Alli's Mom. I love her so much.

I'm also very blessed to have an amazing Mom myself. She is seriously wonder woman. I look up to my Mom a lot. I would say one word to describe my Mom is Selfless. She is always doing things for other people. She makes others feel loved and comfortable and is always positive. I have learned a lot from my Mom just by simply watching her do everything she does throughout my life so far.

A few more things about my Mom:

She sees the good in other people & does not judge people.
She is a very hard worker.
She is a fashionista..always looking stylish =)
She is one classy woman.
She loves sunshine.
Always willing to help out with anything whenever she can.
She is very very intelligent.
She is patient.
She is organized.
She never complains.
She has a strong testimony.
She wants only the best everybody.
She is confident.
She is a great grandma, all of her grand kids just love her! Alli is obsessed with her.
She's a fantastic cook.
She's a great teacher.
She is beautiful.
I love my Mom. Happy Mother's day to the best Mom a girl could ask for!

I have realized that I need to take way more pictures of my Mom, I hardly have any! These particular ones are from awhile back as you can see....I'll have to work on that.

I also have a great mother in law JoAnne, who had always been so kind and supportive from day one. She is really easy to talk to. She loves her grand kids and is always willing to babysit or help out in any way. She loves to take us all to lunch and go shopping...she loves finding good deals!We wish we could see her more...she lives in Cedar City so we don't see her as often as we would like.
(I have very few pictures of her so again, need to start snapping more pics of her! )

Today was the grand opening of the new grocery store WinCo. I went today and I was so impressed. I was a little scared to go in because it was so crowded. I thought everything would be gone but they had everything I needed in stock. I only had to wait in line for 5 minutes because they have a ton of checkers so the line went by super fast. The workers were all really nice, and the best part is that it was super cheap- who doesn't love that?! Anyway, you should go check it out for sure if you live nearby. I give it an A+!

Happy to Introduce...

A new little Nephew Dax Ryan Gardner, born May 1st. Isn't he sssooo cute? He has tons of dark hair with subtle blonde highlights- just like Alli had. I love babies with lots of hair =) Welcome baby Dax and Congrats to my sister Amber, her husband Ryan and big brother Kael!
