Trips and Anniversary

So, we are MOVED! Goodbye, Lovell. I will say that I am so grateful for all the wonderful nice people we were able to spend our summer with, but I'm glad to be back in Utah. Things are a little crazy right now because we aren't all moved in and it's a disaster here. But we'll make it work. We finally got Liam's crib all set up. Poor little guy has been sleeping in either a tent or pack n play for a couple weeks. Ah.

So Devin and I packed up and cleaned all of our stuff from our Wyoming apartment. We rented a UHAUL and went to Yellowstone to meet Devin's family on Friday August 12th. Liam cried for a good thirty minutes. Other than that it was okay.

Yellowstone was a lot of fun. The whole family was there (minus Jessica...it would have been perfect if she could have come). While we were there we went to the mud pots, Old Faithful, a beautiful waterfall hike, and visitors centers. I still didn't see a bear, which i'm pretty upset about. We were able to play with the family, go swimming in the river right behind our campsite (almost getting carried away in the current!!). All in all it was a really fun time. BUT I don't ever want to go camping with a baby again. Liam wasn't so bad, but he wanted to get down and crawl around but he couldn't because he would eat dirt, get sticks stuck in him, etc. So Kayla and I thought it would be a good idea to take the babies home Sunday night and let them sleep in the car. Ha ha, bad idea. One would start crying and wake the other one up, it was pretty much a vicious cycle. Needless to say, the babies had a rough night and we got home at 3am. Happy Anniversary to me :)Here are some pictures from Yellowstone. I couldn't find my camera for a long time so I didn't get very many pictures. Most of them are around our little campsite.

Old Faithful. It was bigger than the last time I saw it!!

Devin and I were able to celebrate our 2 year anniversary on Monday August 15th. Yay! Two years. I can't believe how fast time goes. I love my little family so much. And i'm so grateful for the best husband. We went out to chili's and ate too much dinner and a chocolate molten cake. YUM. Then we went to the movie theater. Devin wanted to see captain america, but at the last minute he decided he would love me and watch the help. GREAT movie. If you have ever read the book it is just like it and perfect!! I thought the characters were fabulous. It was really nice to get out for a while just the two of us. We had gone to the temple a couple times, but other than that we never went on a date without Liam! Hopefully we'll be able to schedule in a date night now that we are living with the in-laws. I think i'm going to pay my sister in-law to watch him once a week. He loves Corinn.

Then we spent the rest of the week hanging out with Ryan and Kayla and Mavrick and Devin's family. Oh and some friends we haven't seen in AGES. We also had a crazy night of Rook with Devin's uncle Alan. Kayla and I were the ultimate winners.
Here is a cute picture from the family picnic
Mavrick having some watermelon.
Liam and Tommy. Tommy is 2 months younger than Liam! He is so big and adorable!!
Mavrick and his crazy hair.
Happy with a ball.
Mav was just chilling in the grass. It was so cute.

On Saturday I helped to a baby shower for my friend Richelle. I think it turned out good. She got a petunia pickle bottom diaper bag, and i am so jealous. i'm probably going to make Devin buy one for me now!! :)

As I am writing this my husband and father in-law are moving refrigerators up and down the stairs. Someone is going to end up with a broken back. But, at least we will have a fridge!
This week will consist of cleaning Devin's parents garage and organizing our new home! Oh, and crafts. Did I mention crafts? :) The end for now!

  1. LOVE all the fun pictures and love having you guys closer now! I do remember trying to camp with babies; it can definitely get a little dicey.
