Funny Face

So Halle makes the funniest face whenever i pull the camera out! Its like she's trying to smile, but it totally doesnt work. She just scrunches up her nose, and squints her eyes. Its makes me laugh so much every time! I wish i could post all the pictures with her making this face (i have like 30) it makes it more funny knowing she seriously does it every time i point the camera at her. Here she is making some funny faces and having fun while we were in AZ visiting my family.
We decided last minute to come out to San antonio- we just drove down this weekend so mike can be out here selling again this summer.

When we drove back to utah (from visiting Dannels in Cali and my fam in AZ) the last 3 hours were full of rain and .... SNOW! It was MAY 27th. we got home at about 1 in the morning and then this is what we woke up to. I also woke up to a message from my dad (who got a text with a snowy picture from my brother James) singing "I'm dreaming of a white summer"... and Mike wonders why i get so frustrated with utah's weather!?!

going under!

She seriously LOVED my parents pool. We were sad we had to leave! Its so nice having a pool in the backyard!

While we were in AZ my little cousin Brigham got baptized. I was thinking about not going, since they live out in Tucson, but i'm so glad i did! I always think that its just not that big of a deal when one of my cousins gets baptized, but HELLO, its one of the most important things they will do in their life! It was a sweet reminder to me of the covenants i have made with my heavenly father and also the blessings that are promised. And how wonderful it is that we are able to take the sacrament each week and renew those covenants! I am so grateful for all of my extended family who are all such good parents and examples to me, and good little cousins who are so sweet and righteous.
Halle also loves her baths! She just slips around and plays with the bubbles and her toys. OOOooooo i just LOVE this girl! She's taking a nap right now- oh she is just such a good girl.

My little brother Jaren is such a basketball stud! He is at the end of his Jr year at Mt View and playing club ball all summer. My dad made this video for college recruiters. Check it out!

so much fun in california!

Last week we got to visit our friends the Dannels in LA. We had so much fun! We wish we could live close-by and hang out all the time-- someday soon hopefully! It was great catching up with some of our favorite friends, eating lots of yummy food, going to the beach, the beachhouse, balboa island, shopping and, of course Mike's favorite part, DISNEYLAND! :) Halle had so much fun with crew and hudson! She seriously loves other little kids! She is so anxious to walk- she pulls herself up on everything and is on the go CONSTANTLY- which is a handful but i love it! I love that she is so curious and always wants to be having fun.
