Future Business Man

So I know that this picture isn't very clear (had to capture the moment on the cell phone), but it was too cute not to post! I took Caden to Daddy's office to drop off his school books and we were talking when we heard a Tap-tap-tap-click-click from the other office...and this was the scene we came upon! (c: I guess it's never too early to start????

Farewell to AZ, purple underwear girl!

So, I've been putting off doing this post because I know I'm going to cry doing it, but seeing as Kara is moving in about 48 hours, I figured it's now or never. So I asked Kara for a picture together and you can see how many time it took her to get in a GOOD one...yeah. But as crazy as that girl is, she is not only my sister, but my best friend. We are almost exactly 2 years apart in age and though we've always gotten along reasonably well...probably ever since sometime in high school we've been very close. She is one of the most fun, creative, loving, silly, beautiful, giving, and WONDERFUL people I have ever had the priveledge of knowing. And I say that knowing pretty much EVERYTHING about her! She has been and continues to be such a wonderful example to her big sister, I am always learning from her kind and patient demeanor. I am so grateful to have such a great sis and will REALLY miss our morning walks together and being able to come drop in on her any time. I know AZ isn't that far away, but it doesn't matter how far away she goes, she'll always be my little sis! Good Luck in Sierra Vista, Love you Karesey!

Durango, CO...

Since we all had this weekend free, Grandma, Grandpa, Kara, Garrick, Rylee, Jadyn, Carleigh, Hannah, Josh & me & Caden all decided to run up to Durango. We got to eat out (which now-a-days seems like a big treat (c: ), visit Silverton, and just enjoy the outdoors. We had so much fun and it was just a couple degrees cooler up there, which made such a nice difference! We were laughing because the highlight of the trip to Durango was their Recreation Center there which turned out to be awesome! They have this huge indoor swim area with all these water slides and toys and fountains for the little one and they had a BLAST. I guess the adults had a little fun there, too! (c: Durango is just so's just naturally relaxing. The Silverton Train that goes through was definitely a highlight for Caden!

Four Years!

I can't believe it's already been four years and at the same time, I can't believe it's only four! Today is Josh and I's anniversary and for those of you who know us and "our story"...know it's been a long road (in a good way!). The very condensed, Reader's Digest version is our parents knew each other before we were even born, they were in the same ward. So we grew up bitter enemies...until we were about 11: same sunday school class, our sisters were best friends, and my mom was his cub scout leader. But around 11, both of our families moved and I didn't see him again until I was a senior in high school, we met again at a church dance. What can I say, he was hot! (c: Unfortunately, after one disasterous date, I decided I would rather endure horrific torture than talk to him ever again! So how did we end up married you might ask??? Well, after a year at UNM, I was at Dion's with a friend discussing the end of my latest boyfriend, when I saw that same hot guy...I figured it would be a nice confidence boost to talk to him. I couldn't have ever dreamed I would ever so much as go out with him again, but I did. We dated for TWO YEARS and then both went on missions where we wrote each other faithfully, Josh to the Ogden, UT mission and I to Sao Paulo, Brazil. No one believed we would be able to still like each other, let alone LOVE each other after that, but two months after Josh arrived home, we were married in the Albuquerque temple on our 4 year anniversary of getting together (the second time!)...and they lived happily ever after!

Hot Summer Days

I have to admit, I have not been feeling inspired lately...maybe it's how hot it's been outside. But I figured I better post something new before I start getting the comments on my last blog about how I need to update it! (c: So Caden is now obsessed with anything he deems a "car" (cars, buses, motorcycles, fourwheelers...). He always carries around his little red motorcycle, I think it might have something to do with the fact that it looks just like the one his daddy rides. )c: This is him and his uncle zach...uncle zach obviously being a bad influence...and just a shot of his cute little face!
