Bear Lake

We took a day trip to Bear Lake to see our friends BJ and Anuhea who were camping there. It was gorgeous! I love how blue the water at Bear Lake is. The kids had a blast! Enjoy :)

Elise's Baptism

Well it happened our sweet baby girl turned 8 and then was baptized on July 16th, 2016. It was a very special day and she was so excited. After she was baptized she immediately said, "Mom that was so fast and easy, I feel amazing!" It was so sweet it made me tear up a little, then I cried more during the musical number, you can hear Elise so clearly with her sweet little voice. Afterwards we took some pictures and went out to eat. It was a perfect day. Nice work Elise! We love you!

It's Great to Be Eight!

It's Great to Be Eight! Here is Elise, my little model for her 8th birthday. We were taking pictures for her baptism announcement. As you look through these pictures I bet you can't tell that it was almost 100 degrees the day we took these. Ha! Lately I have been working on my photography skills and I was lucky enough to take pictures of this girl (she has always been one of my favorite subjects to shoot). I still can't believe she is 8 years old. That means that I have been doing this blog for 8 years, crazy how time flies! Elise, we love what a nice, beautiful and smart girl you have become. Happy Birthday Elise!!!!! We love you! Love, Mommy, Poppa, Carter and Monroe

And now a trip down memory lane...
