Family Photo Shoot

Here are the pictures that cousin Val took of our family at the reunion. It was super hard to pick out the ones that we liked the best because they were all soo good. Thank you sooo much for the amazing pictures Val!!!

The whole family.

Reunion

We had an awesome family reunion this weekend in Bryce Canyon, with Greg's mom's side of the family. Of course I am totally lame and did not take a single picture and I don't even have an excuse because I did bring my camera, I just didn't take any pictures. Luckily I have some amazing sister-in-laws that did actually take pictures. Thanks Natalie for taking the picture of our family by the waterfall.



We did a little hike up to a mossy cave. Here's Avalyn and Tucker in the cave. And then we hiked down to this water fall (see fam pic). It was a nice, easy hike for the kids (ME). And it was fun to hang out with Ryan and Paul and their families.

Other fun moments not photographed: Newlywed Game, yummy buffets, kids craft/lawn games, late night card games and family photo shoot with cousin Val (photos coming soon).

We already miss everyone soo much, it went by way too fast. We can't wait for the next reunion in 3 years!

Summerlin Pool

The community pool by Grammy's house is soo fun. There is a little slide for the girls and a big slide for the bigger kids (Greg and Grammy). And my favorite part is the beach entry where Shallon can sit and play. I love summer!

Mermaids

The girls just hanging out in Grammy and Granddad's hot tub.

baby legs

Now that Shallon is a crawler, her knees are getting pretty roughed up. I found these cute leg warmers online, but they are a little pricey. One of the other babies at playgroup had some on and her mom told me that she made them out of knee high socks. Here is my attempt. I think that they turned out pretty cute. On a side note Shallon loves Sadie (the dog in the picture). When Sadie is in sight, Shallon crawls at warp speed towards her. And Sadie is actually very tolerant of Shallon's attempts to hold on to her fur.

And she's off...

Here's a Shallon update:

Dada is her favorite word, she says it all the time. It's my own fault, I wanted her to learn dada. If she is asking for Greg then I get a break right?

ps. I'm unsuccessfully trying to show off her 2 new teeth at the end of the video.

Shallon is now a crawler. You can see in the video, that she is an unconventional crawler. She uses one foot and drags her other leg. We are hopeful that she will figure out the whole hand, knee thing eventually. :)

ps. I know that the sound isn't working correctly, but I don't know what to do about it. Sorry, you get the idea though, right?
