BYU vs Air Force

To say the following statement feels almost as bad as smashing my face in the door, which is why you will only hear me say it once.

Ok. If I had to choose to loose to one would be Air Force.

Now to back up my statement; it's a lot less painful losing to a team who will soon be fighting for your country. Plus, their fans were the most decent fans of all, unlike some UNLV and Utah fans (oops, did I just say Utah??)

Nate, Adley, Taylor, and I, along with our BYU flags on our car, made the long 8 hour journey to Colorado Springs this past weekend to watch some Cougar football. We showed up for the game, but unfortunately the Cougars did not.

After spending the day on campus at Air Force, I have a greater respect for those who choose to serve our country. It was both incredible and inspiring to spend the day of September 11 there.

Book Suggestions??

I need some new books to read, and am looking for book suggestions! I just barely finished The Help (slow but good), The Hunger Games, and Catching Fire. Both these books kept me hooked, resulting in a lot of time in her swing for Adley (half serious, half joking). So I need to know what other books I should add to my list (promising I won't further neglect my child).

I'm not too picky. Nothing too sad in the kind that leave you depressed for a few days. I've banned those books altogether. Yes Amber, I'm still building up the courage to read your book.

Please leave your suggestions!!

Baby Food

23 dollars later....60 servings of sweet potatoes, peas, carrots, bananas, peaches, and spinach.

Pop an ice cube out, let it thaw.

Thanks Keisha for the great idea!

Independence Day

The 4th was spent at the freedom festival, as well as Stadium of Fire. I wanted to go ever since I heard Carrie Underwood would be this years main act, but never bought tickets. An hour before the show started Nate went to the stadium and scalped us two tickets. It was well worth the $$$. Carrie did not disappoint!

Father's Day in Seattle

As always, our trip to Seattle was a lot of fun, but went by way too fast!! I was nervous for Adley's first plane ride. She actually did very well, only letting out a few peeps. When she did squeal, an older woman so graciously kept telling us what she thought was wrong with our baby. She told us our baby was both cold and uncomfortable. At one point she even told us she probably wanted her headband taken off. Was this lady serious????

Downtown Seattle. Love it.

Riding her first pig. Pretty wild.

Adley met Baby Max.

Fathers Day:

Nana bought Adley her little bumbo chair. She'll get tired of holding herself up sometimes, and I'll look over and she's literally folded in half just hanging out.

This past week was spent with a lot of friends. Emily came from Canada for a week, so last Friday we took the babies to the Zoo (even though they didn't really know what was going on). We already miss Emily and Baby Blakely.

Paige was also in town this past week so we all got together for breakfast on Monday. I always have a lot of fun with these girls. They were all my best friends throughout college. It has been fun experiencing single life, marriages, and becoming mom's with all of them. We all try and get together a couple times a month. We missed you Emily, Amanda, and Chelsea!

Quincy has always held a special spot in my heart. I absolutely love her. As Adley grows, I know she will be good friends with her and West.

This little girl brings me so much joy!
