Happy Anniversary Mom & Dad

This is a younger version of my Dad. Is he a looker or what?
This is my parents on their wedding day outside of the Idaho Falls Temple, July 12, 1968
They have been married 46 years. 
I love looking at old pictures of my parents. They are amazing people and exemplify a lot of wonderful values. They have taught and continue to teach me amazing things about love and friendship through their actions. They are pretty cool parents and I love them and want to wish them a happy day and many more years of love to come. 

Trailer Camping...this is the Life!

SO over Father's Day Weekend we went "window" shopping for a camper trailer. Something we have been discussing on getting for a while now. We love camping and as campers we have really evolved. Anyway, we totally bought one but we love it and have already used it a bunch! So Happy Father's Day Lars!
I also got Lars a "Man-edible-arrangement" but who cares about that...we just bought ourselves a camper trailer. YIKES!!!!
Here is our home away from home

We took it out and did some camping with Lars brother.

Roan became good friends with their dog, Angus. He followed him around and kept asking him what he was doing? Or he would try and help get him to come somewhere. 
Our campsite had a swing. 
The Aspen trees were stunning. 
Roan helped collect firewood

We hiked a lot and Roan found sticks

Then we went fishing. We didn't catch anything but had fun trying. 

Roan is really good at throwing and reeling but never sticks with it long enough to catch anything. Too much to see and do as a toddler I guess. 

We found a crawfish
Snuggles with Grandma by the fire.

First breakfast at the camper table. 

We had a lot of fun camping with our brother and Mom. Can't wait to go out again. Camping with a trailer is so awesome. I still love roughing it with a tent but man I am getting used to this. We are totally game if you want to come out with us sometime. Seriously, just scheduled it with us and you can come.
That is how we roll!

June Kitchen Sink

June was a busy month. I seriously thought summer was going to be low key but we have had something fun each week. This post is out of order but a kitchen sink dedication to some of the fun we had. 
Roan has been in love with his train....again. 

 It is really cute to watch him play and hear the stories he makes up. 
Summer has been made easy when you have a toddler that will help you carry everything.

In one weekend we went to the local Aquarium and Zoo. Roan loved the fish and the monkeys. 

Lars had to work on Memorial day so I took Roan to a splash pad. He LOVED IT!
I had to pry him away from the water to eat lunch. 

We found this nest in our bush. Since then a few of the eggs have hatched but there is still one left that didn't make it :(
Roan prefers to ride in the cart now. Does this make him a big boy now?
Karen came into town and we had a blast catching up over a dinner and a show. I love these ladies so much.

This boy is a nut with a nutella mustache. 

He loves nursery so much that sometimes I bring him to nursery during Enrichment. 
uh oh...someone found my front view camera on my phone

How close can he get.
