Sweet Haven

I curled Haven's hair for the first time, or at least tried to. She wouldn't really hold still but after it was done she LOVED it. She knew she looked so pretty, she stared at herself & posed in the mirror for a good five minutes! Just disregard the dirty mirror. Five minutes before this she had dumped all my make up out in the sink and turned the water on, and she has dried up toothpaste all over herself....2 year olds i tell ya!
I also made a video of her sweet little voice. She is getting to be so much fun!
Love you busy, messy but sweet little Haven!

Accord Lakes

We went camping over the 24th with Josh family. We just stayed for one night because that's all I can do, especially right now being almost 34 weeks pregnant. Plus, I'm not much of a camper but hey I went! =) This is my second camping trip this month- what?!! I'm amazing. 
Luckily it rained and was overcast a lot of the time so it wasn't too hot. My girls had so much fun playing with their cousins all day and night. Alli calls it "cousin camp" or "big camp" and looks forward to it each year, and cried when it was time to go. It was a fun time with the Sutherland clan, they are some serious campers and stay for almost a week!! Now that's some serious camping. Thanks for all the fun!

These two played ALL day long and even slept in a little tent together

 The camp cooks, they make some good stuff while camping. Sorry JoAnne, I had to post it ;)

 Hmm, I wonder who stole some white powdered doughnuts?!

Haven just wanted to play or nap with every dog of course, and there were three there!

On a ride with Peyton

 She thinks she's ready to steal this 4-wheeler and go for a ride


 Making pasta necklaces- thanks to Sydney and Stacey


 Poor Dillon wrecked on his 4-wheeler and had to get stitches =( He's had a rough summer. So glad it wasn't more serious

 They were out within 10 minutes of leaving


SLC Bees Game

Most every summer my parents take us all out for dinner and a Bee's game. It's a fun little tradition. This year was ssooo hot, but we had a blast. Can't go wrong with dinner at Little America, balloons, cotton candy, cousins, licorice and baseball! Oh and how can i forget, Josh participated in a little activity. He ran around the outside edge of the field between innings for a little promo for Smith's produce. He was the Red apple and took 3rd out of 4. It was hilarious to watch ha ha. The next day you would have thought he ran a marathon, he was just "exhausted." 
Thanks G & G Albrecht!

Monroe Mountain

Saturday morning after the 4th we went up to my parents place on Monroe Mountain to stay a night. It was SO pretty- I hadn't been up there in like 7 years no joke so it was fun to go! These cousins all had a blast and got dirty! We played horseshoes, had some s'mores, carved our names on a tree, did a little four-wheeling, and made dutch oven chicken & potatoes. My parents came up to have some of our delicious dinner and hang out for a bit and then went back home. Sunday  morning after we got home my Mom had made us all Sunday dinner, she is way too nice!





Josh took Haven out looking for deer and elk after dinner and found some! These are some pictures he got on his phone. So flippin cute! Alli and I stayed and made s'mores and went on a little four-wheeler ride.




Happy Birthday America

We had a fun fourth this year in Richfield. It did not disappoint! As usual we had fun at the parade, fish grab, tons of yummy food, BBQ, lots of water fun, riding in the El Camino, fireworks, home made ice cream and sunburns! The 4th is definitely one of my favorite holidays, it's just so great. I'm thankful to live in such a great country and for all the men and women who make sacrifices for our freedom everyday. 
P.S. My camera was on some weird setting for a lot of these, so sad!

****FISH GRAB****





****EL CAMINO RIDE WITH GRANDPA****


 ****PATRIOTIC LESSON FROM GRANDPA****
My Dad told them all about the 4th of July and why we celebrate it. Always a teaching/learning moment with Grandpa =) Afterwards they all felt like they had to hug everyone ha ha





****FIREWORKS****



 Quite possibly my favorite part, my Mom's home made ice cream. This stuff is SO good!! She should start her own brand and sell it.
