Then we went to Mimi's to play with her cousins and uncle Garrett! That night we ate at home and ate cupcakes! We had her party on August 4th. It was a Mermaid birthday party!! I was so excited I had been buying stuff for it for a while so I was so excited to see it all set up!! My whole family came it was so much fun, I made brown sugar chicken tacos, yummy!

For Memorial Day weekend this year we decided it would be fun to go on a vacation just our little family! Well we don't have much money these days so we decided to do something fairly close and cheap. So we decided on St. George, we left saturday morning really early hoping that Brooke would sleep, well she didn't she is crazy she doesn't sleep in the car. But she was such a good girl, reading her books and cuddling her baby!! We got there it was windy and a little cold but we were going to make the best of it. We went to breakfast at the Bear Paw, very yummy, then we went to this little water play area ( I don't know what to call it) It looked like a miniature canyon for kids, it was so awesome, Brooke loved it we were there everyday for a couple hours each time because she loved it so much. It was nice because the water was only an inch deep, and with Brooke that is the best she loves water but she thinks she is a mermaid so she is always trying to jump in alone or dive under it is kinda scary but cute!! We just relaxed a lot it was perfect!! We spent a few hours at the pool, walked around a lot, did a little shopping, ate lots of yummy food!! The best place we ate at was Black Bear Diner it was so yummy!! Our hotel room was pretty nice, we had a king bed it was amazing!!! WE could all fit, Brooke liked sleeping with us!! It was funny when we booked the trip we didn't know that Whitney & Jordan would be down there so we met up with them once at a really cool park! Brooke and Tripp were so excited to see each other it was so cute!! On the drive home she slept for a 1/2 hour I was so proud!! Then the day after we got home we went and visited my little brother's grave and my grandparents grave. Brooke liked putting the flowers on the grave it was cute to watch her. It was so emotional for me being there just thinking of loosing Brooke and how heart broken I would be. It has always been emotional to see his grave, but now that I have my own child just imagining the pain that my mom went through! I hope I never have to know the personal pain of loosing a child. Just watching her, and all of the cute things she does. I just sat there and cried. Well enough of me here are some pictures!!!

Jared and I took a trip to Las Vegas, it was my first trip without my Brookey Sue. This was my first time leaving her over night with anyone, so I was having a really hard time leaving her, I was so just so nervous for many reasons. I over think things and I always think the worst in a situation like this, like I am going to die and never see her again. I know I am crazy. We left her with my parents, so I knew that she was in good hands, but none the less I hated to leave her!!We left Tuesday morning really early and got to Vegas at about noon we stayed at the Cosmopolitan Hotel. It was so nice, it was the coolest hotel that we have ever stayed in. We got a room with a terrace, and a huge bath tub, that was something I was adiment on wanted a large tub to just relax in and we got it and I used it like twice a day!! The hotel room was beautiful we loved it so much!!We went to lunch at Holstein's in the hotel, if you got to Vegas, we highly recommend this place so yummy! Then we just walked around went to the M&M factory, the Coke factory and the Wax Museum it is a really fun place we took some fun pictures. When we got to the Wax museum they told us one of the rooms were closed, but it
was the older stars of Vegas so we thought it still sounded fun so we went through it anyways. We got to the part where it was closed and behind the curtain was a wax figure of Celine Dion!! I was so bummed because the whole way through I was hoping to see her. So Jared being the sweet guy he is went and talked to a manager and they told us we could come back tomorrow to see her, that is what we did we went back the next day and they told us she wasn't there she was at local news station. BOO!! I was again so bummed, people that know me know that I am obsessed with Celine so I was pretty sad. We did a lot of walking around it was really fun, but I brought cute shoes not comfortable ones, oops. One night I had on5 inch heels, let me tell you it was a dumb decision ha ha. The next day we slept in and ate breakfast in bed and then went out walking some more. That night we went to the Cheesecake Factory, yummy and then to our show we went to the Variety show it was pretty fun. Our original plans were, we had tickets to see Celine Dion in her concert and two days before we left her show was canceled. Again very
bummed, it was like everything was preventing us from seeing her!! But we still had so much fun being there together!! One morning Jared took us to a place to get massages, it was my first massage it was so nice. It felt so good just to relax!! Then after that we went to the Pawn Shop ( the one from history channel) Jared likes that show so we had to stop in. We waited like 10 minutes to get in so not bad, and we walked around it for a minute, I found a diamond ring in there I wanted it was so pretty it was only $14,000 and Jared wouldn't buy it for me ha ha. I am so grateful that we were able to take this trip, it was so fun just us and to laugh and be together. We have so much fun together, I swear we are constantly laughing I love it!! And let me tell you I am so grateful to live in Utah and not see naked women everywhere you look. I couldn't live there it is pretty trashy on the strip. It makes you glad to live in a place like utah. When we went and picked up Brooke she wouldn't go to me. I started to cry, but trying to hold it in I felt like I was going to have a breakdown. Then after a few minutes she wanted me Yay!!! It was so much fun to go and just be with my hubby, I love him so much and I am so blessed to have him in my life, He is so loving and giving toward me I am so spoiled by him!! Here are some fun pictures!!

Hello again, I am so bad at posting on here. But life has been good!!
The holiday's were really fun Ty and Sar were in Utah for the month of December, it was so much fun having them back!! All of the babies love Ty, when he was around he was the only person they wanted. He could cheer them all up make them laugh and just did silly things with them.They moved to New Mexico after the new year, it is hard having them gone, I miss them soo much!! Whitney and Sarah are both expecting little boys this June!! So fun I am so excited for both of them!! I can't believe how many nephews I have we need another girl, Brooke is all alone! But I don't think she minds it, she loves those boys!!
Brookey is getting so big, she is talking so much and is very independent. She is very sassy, oh boy does she have some spunk to her!! I absolutely loveit though, it is so cute!! I love being home with her we really have so much fun together! She is so smart too, it amazes me, she knows just what she wants and will figure out a way to get it. I am pretty much in love with her if you can't tell. She likes to dress up now and wear jewelry it is so cute she will walk around with necklaces on and bracelets, and rings. She likes to color, mostly on the walls or her table, I guess coloring books are boring ha ha. She loves shoes, she loves to put mine on and sometimes even Jared's shoes, She is such a girly girl and I love it!! Sowe got a dog for about 5 minutes. Ihad been wanting a dog for her and was looking and found a Beagle mix on a website, so we went to look at her and came home with her, her name was Zoe. She was so adorable and just loved Brooke, she would follow her around every where it was so cute! But 5 days later we had to get rid of her because of Jared's allergies, I was so sad, I cried for two days, I am such a baby. And the worst part is the that Brooke still goes to the back door and nocks on the glass and calls for Zoe, it is getting less and less which I am thankful for because I would cry every time she said her name. So Jared's parents are going on a mission to Lubick,Texas they leave February 20th. We are sad to see them leave but excited for them at the same time. It is going to be really hard though, Brooke not seeing them, if I think about it too much I cry. The closer it gets the harder it is getting for me. I really am going to miss them, Holidays will be really weird without them around. We love them and are so proud and excited for them!! They will be great missionaries, the people of Texas are very lucky!! We love you guys!! Here are a few pictures!! I got a little picture happy!!
