Summertime Fun!

This weekend we were able to make a quick trip to Salt Lake to see family and go to our friend Kenny and Anee's wedding reception. Elise had a blast too, well when she wasn't skipping naps! Daniel and I are looking forward to the 4th and Elise's birthday on 10th. Until next time......

Happy Father's Day!

Below is a poem to Daniel, I gave it to him along with a framed picture of him and Elise.
Walk along side me, Poppa and hold my little hand.
I have so many things to learn that I don't yet understand.
Teach me things to keep me safe from dangers every day.
Show me how to do my best at home, at school, at play.
Every child needs a gentle hand to guide them as they grow.
So walk along side me, Poppa we have a long way to go.

This week lots things happened, Elise is now walking everywhere! She will occasionally crawl, but her favorite mode of transportation is walking. This weekend Elise also said her first word besides Da-Da. Her first word was Happy!!! Pretty much the perfect word. My camera was lost for most of the week so here are just a few pictures to share. Enjoy :)

Happy 1st Father's Day Daniel! Elise is just a little tired here.

A Day in the Life of a Rancher

This weekend we were able to do some work on Daniel's family's ranch. I also drove around town and took some pictures so you can get a feel for what Wyoming is really like. Elise's new thing is she loves reading books, doesn't matter what kind of book, she loves all of them. She pulls one out of her toy chest takes it to you and smiles hoping you will read it to her. It's soooooooooooo cute! Enjoy :)

Elise in June

This week Elise has been very busy. She now gives high fives, spins in a circle while sitting down and took 13 steps before falling down. The only sad thing is that Elise got her first black eye this week. She looks like a football player. (Note to self don't throw a full baby bottle for someone to catch while holding a baby) As for Daniel and I nothing too exciting going on just work work work and enjoying the start of summer weather.
