When Exactly Did This Happen?

Have you ever seen the movie Fifty First Dates? You know at the end of the movie, when she wakes up and finds out that she has a husband and a child? Well, she did. And so do I. Every day. I wake up and hear crying off in the distance. I can't help but notice there is another person in my bed...a man. I think to myself that it is a little creepy. He looks a lot like that cute boy from my singles ward that wouldn't kiss me. Well apparently he did kiss me and then we got married. Or maybe it was the other way around? We got married, then he kissed me? Did we even date? I don't know. All I know is that he is there and that I can still hear a baby crying. So, I get up to follow the crying. Naturally I walk toward the front door because someone obviously left a baby on my front porch. As I walk I notice all my skin and rolls flubbing around. That's weird, I think to myself. I could have sworn that yesterday I had a flat tummy. When I walk passed a closed door however, I notice that the crying is not coming from outside, but from inside my own house. Putting together the pieces, I realize that the baby in there must be mine. But when did that happen? If I think back really hard I kind of remember thinking once that I had had a baby inside of me for like two years and I was coming to accept the fact that it would never be out. I open the door expecting to see a newborn that I must have had yesterday and forgot about. But it is not a newborn. There is nine month old baby STANDING in her crib. She has to be mine, she looks like such a good mix of me and that boy from my ward. She is smiling at me like she recognizes me or something.

It's so weird, I can't figure out when all of this happened! Time is flying by and I feel like I can't keep up. So I guess I better go do what she does in Fifty First Dates and go look at old pictures and videos and see if I can figure out when all of this happened. Older people are probably laughing at me right now and will tell me "Wait until you wake up tomorrow, she will have her driver's license. And watch out for the next day, you will wake up a grandma." But my ears can't take the shock of such things right now. I mean, she's my little baby. She will be my little baby forever, right?

Trip to South Carolina


Makenzie spent time getting into trouble....

And had to go to jail....

Here we are blowing up floats to go swimming....and it's pouring outside.

But lucky for us in South Carolina it can stop raining just as quickly as it starts....





And we got to celebrate Halston's Birthday! She turned 12. Weird.


More trouble....

And of course, we went out on the boat. This is the captain.

Makenzie was not a fan of the life jacket....


She was much happier out of the sun...and just layed there for about an hour....


And then she was willing to see what the fuss was about


We went out on the tube, and went wake boarding (we does not include Makenzie....), and we even saw an alligator. But, none of this is pictured. We noticed the alligator while my mom was in the water...scary....

Madison's Wedding

My sister, Madison, got married a few weeks ago in the Timpanogos Temple. She had a reception later that night in Provo. Somehow I ended up with very few wedding pictures on my camera, but here are a few pictures from Madison and Josh's wedding day!

Try not to throw up while looking at my hair that I HATED. Luckily, I don't think people were concentrating on me that day....


The girls...


And of course....

The Get-away

Anyway Congrats to Madison and Josh!

Return of the Airplane

I never feel like blogging when I have a lot to blog about. And, I guess I do have a lot to blog about. Anyway, I still don't feel like going through all of my pictures from the events of the past three weeks. So...in the meantime....

Many of you may remember Makenzie airplane when she was two months old:

Well the airplane eventually crashed and was pretty lame. But apparently, she is ready for flight again....


Her two month one was better...but this one still cracks us up....
