This past week we've been in Oregon.... if you haven't been there, you should definitely go sometime. We had tons of fun. It was cold, we didn't catch any crabs or see any whales and I had to wear a hat the whole time because my hair was a mess.... but it honestly was awesome! Payton kept saying, "Its a fun vacation!" She was scared of the waves, but loved all the starfish and seals. Thanks Callie for setting this all up. We won't ever forget the fun time we had there. We're blessed to be able to do things like this with people we love.

More pics from Oregon.....

Happy Fathers Day!

Happy Fathers Day Daddy!
We're grateful for our Dad's and all the many, many, many things they do for us.
Payton and I are so grateful for Brett and for the great man that he is. Its sad that it takes a special day like Fathers Day for us to realize how blessed we are to have him in our lives. He works so hard every day, to provide a living for our family, without ever complaining. He's such an awesome, loving dad and an even better husband. We couldn't ever be without him, thank goodness we have eternity.

Week At Grandma and Grandpa's

Payton spent the week at Grandma's and loved every second of it. Thanks Mom and Dad for watching her and thanks Ryan for playing with her. She loves you all so much. She still hasn't stopped calling me Grandma.

I Got Tagged!

6 Random Things About Me.....
#1 Despite my shy, reserved exterior... I'm really quite crazy. Just hanging out with Payton, the nieces and nephews, or my sister always tends to bring out the funnier side of me.
#2 I have lazy eye... My left eye is a lazy eye. When I was younger I wore a patch over my eye. Now that I'm older I rarely notice it, unless I get very tired.... My eye can decide to take a break and droop wherever.
#3 Brett and I met snowboarding up the canyon. When we met I was dating, pretty seriously, one of his really good friends. I was devastated after he broke up with me... but little did I know that Heavenly Father had someone else for me. Its crazy how things work out. I Love You, Brett!
#4 I hate cooking. I'm not a bad cook, but for some reason I just really don't like to cook.
#5 I have a horrible attention span. I'm not kidding. I've been trying to work on this my whole life, but it hasn't gotten any better. So, if we're having a conversation and you can tell that I've stopped listening... don't be afraid to tell me. I don't do it on purpose.
#6 I'm not a morning person... I'm not really a night owl either. I just like my sleep. Luckily I was blessed with a child who likes her sleep too. Thanks Payton, for sleeping until 8:00 or 9:00 every morning.

The Trek

This past week Brett and I were able to go on a trek with our ward. I've been on a trek before, but I don't remember it being anything like this one. It was honestly amazing and spiritually overwhelming to see the youth in our ward. I'm grateful for the experience and grateful for the Lord's hand in all that happened there. Out of the youth and adults that were there.... I believe every single one of us was touched by the spirit... in a way that we never had been before. We are so blessed to have the Gospel in our lives.
