On Halloween day we visited the fire-station where our brother - in - law, Kevin, works. We got some pretty cute pictures of all our nieces and nephews on the fire-truck!
Halloween night we went to the PBR (professional bull riding rodeo) in Vegas with Nick's Family. It was Nick's Dads 60th Birthday!!
Nick's Brother Gus and his wife Adrienne at the Rodeo!

In August we took our niece, Tylee, to San Francisco for her birthday to see the Broadway play Wicked! Nick's sister, Cynthia, came as well. We had a BLAST!! It was Tylee's first time on a plane, and the flight attendant made a big deal about that! She was so embarrassed!
This is us at the Painted Ladies - houses at the first of 'Full-House'
We drove across the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito, it is such a fun little town! There were lots of sail boats out -
This is Nick being silly in Sausalito
Of course no trip to San Francisco is complete without a cable car ride!
This is us at Wicked! We ♥ Wicked! We saw it for the first time when we were in London last year. It was amazing! Nick got to see it a second time while he was on a business trip in Chicago.
We don't have any pictures - but probably the BEST thing about our trip to San Fran was when Nick JUMPED the rental car! The streets are so steep - and of course - Nick took advantage of the hills! We had a GREAT time doing this!
Our niece Shakell was able to show a lamb at the stock show in Cedar this year. She did a great job, and we were all sad to see 'Bones' leave.
This is our niece Aryale, poor girl had been to the dentist before the stock show, and had some teeth pulled.
The Dixie Rodeo Roundup was in the middle of September. We went with Blair and Vanessa on Saturday night! Nick got all dressed up for the occasion in his white wranglers, boots, and a shirt that said, "I Just Cut a Big One!" Besides some rain, we had a blast!
Of course fall is not complete without the deer hunt! We spent last weekend hunting with Nick's family in Minersville! We had a blast! It is so fun to hang out with family and drive around the hills!
The other fearless hunters! Devin, Ashely, Grandma Marlene, and Gus Oh Nick... He couldn't find his sunglassess! Doesn't he look so cute in Paige's!

We had a great time on the hunt! We are looking forward to all the fun things we have coming up this fall and winter! Hopefully we'll be better at blogging about it all!
We hope you are all doing well!
Remember next month is national adoption month!

We are playing the waiting game with adoption. We are approved and just waiting to be chosen. All is well with us, and we hope that you are all enjoying your summer!
In June - for my birthday - we went to Lake Powell with our friends Blair and Vanessa. Besides the dive of a motel - we had a BLAST!

4th of July
We spent the 4th of July in Minersville with Nick's family. His Mom's sisters came - it is always a blast when we are together! Lots of family from up north, and Milford. His aunt and cousin's family came from Texas, and his cousin from Colorado made it as well! We were so excited to see everyone! It has been a few years since we've been together!
Of course the morning started out with the traditional bombs - and then a parade down main street - our nieces Tylee and Shakell and our nephews Kaden and Gus were in the Parade. After the Parade we went to the Minersville Program - which is an hour program about the history of the town. This year Nick's little sister Ashley and her husband Devin danced in the program - it was hilarious! They did a great job!
Of course no Minersville celebration is complete without a BBQ, 4-wheeler rides, lots of visiting, and fireworks. We had a great 4th of July - and it was so fun to spend it with some of Nick's extended family.
Paige's Family Vacation
We headed home Saturday night following the fireworks in Minersville - so that we could attend the blessing of Troy and Andrea's little addition - Camrie. It was a great blessing! Following the blessing we headed up to Salt Lake to spend some time with Paige's family.
Monday we spent the entire day at Lagoon! It was so fun to see Mike (Paige's Brother) and his wife Summer! We haven't seen them in forever! We rode so many fun rides - and just hung-out in the sun!
~ Rattlesnake Rapids: Aubree, Todd, Mom
Paige LOVES old time pictures! So she suggested that we get one while we were all together - at Lagoon! It was super fun to dress up - and act silly - wait - act silly? We didn't have to act....It was a blast!
Monday night we drove to Park City - and stayed in a time share up there - it was super nice! Tuesday we headed to the Oquirrh Mountain Temple open house - it was so pretty -and a fun experience. The rest of the day we just hung out at the time share.
Wednesday we headed home - but no trip is complete without a stop at Cheesecake Factory - Paige's favorite! It was so sad to be done with our little vacation! We miss Mike and Summer so much!! - We can't wait to see them again!

First of all we celebrated our 4th Anniversary on the 27th of May! It is so crazy to us that we have been married for 4 year!
I am so lucky to have Nick as my husband! He is so patient with me! My love for him grows every day - and I still get butterflies when I think about how much I love him!
For our anniversary trip we went to visit our friends Tyler and Camille in Louisville! We had a blast!! For the first few days of our trip they were out here in Utah visiting family - so we just explored on our own!
We flew out on Friday morning - and once we landed we headed right for Cincinnati to have dinner with Paige's cousin Ben and his wife Melissa! We miss them so much! It is a darn good thing that Nick reminded Paige that we were near Ohio - and that we could visit with them! Paige is a total ditz when it comes to geography!!
Saturday afternoon we headed down to Nashville! We toured the Grand Ole' Opery! It was super cool! We got to see the singers mail boxes, their dressing rooms, and even stand on stage!
Saturday night we went to the Nashville Temple - it is so tiny!
On Sunday we just drove around and explored Nashville - We love to drive by and look at nice homes - don't worry that these homes gave us a new description of MANSIONS! Their homes are ginormous!!
On our way home, we stopped and visited the Louisville Temple -
On Sunday Night we picked up Ty and Camille from the airport! It was so good to see them! Their son Kayden is so big! He was so much fun - just constantly jabbering and walking around! He is super cute!!
Monday (Memorial Day) we went to ChurchHill Downs - There were actually races! So we got ourselves a seat near the finish line - and watched a couple races! It was so cool! Nick really enjoyed it - his family has always been into horse races - they even had a couple race horses when he was growing up!
The Trumpets Starting the Race:
Us! Aren't we Super Cute?!
Us at the Finish Line!
For lunch we went to the cutest little diner! Paige wants to open a place like it here! It had mismatched tables and chairs from the 50's - 60's. Cool lamps on the tables, crazy decor every where you looked! It was a lot of fun! In the parking lot - they had some photo opportunities - - -

Nick at the Slugger Museum
Tuesday night we went to the Falls of the Ohio - much like Niagara Falls. Well - the falls were nice - but - we think Niagara wins!
Nick walking with Kayden at the Falls - Super Cute!
We flew out Wednesday morning! We had a great trip - and we were very sad to come home! We always have a blast with Ty and Camille! We are so happy that they let us come stay with them!!
