We are jumping in!

We have decided to take the dive and join the blogging pool. We are doing this to keep in better contact with family, friends, and those who live out of state. We also thought it would be fun to share with you the MANY pictures we take.

Here is a brief overview of our lives for the past two years: We bought our first home. Brian graduated from the University of Utah with a degree in finance. Our little family began to grow - Ashlyn was born on March 11, 2006. Jamie quit working, become a full-time stay at home mom. We are expecting our second child, due November 8th.

Here are some highlights of our summer!!

We spent a wonderful week at a cabin in Duck Creek -thanks mom and dad! For those who don't know, Duck Creek is up Cedar Mountain. We were able to go to Zions National Park one day which was our favorite part of the vacation.

We spent all day hiking in Zions, which meant that Ashlyn spent all day in the back pack. As you can tell, she loved it! She did so well all day, but by the end of the last hike to Emerald Pools, she had fallen fast asleep.

We saw a ton of squirrels, lizards, and frogs along the trails. Our sister-in-law Monica caught this tiny guy and I was barely able to snap a photo before it jumped off her hand.

We spent some fun in the sun...

Grandpa put up a huge playset in his backyard, the kids love it!

Poor Ashlyn was stung by a bee.

We went to multiple Bees games courtesy of Med One (Brian's employer).

We planted our first garden. This is from our zucchini plant???

The world's smallest tomato! Better luck next year!

Ya'll come back now ya hear!
