Catching up...

It's been 2 months since my last post, so I feel like quite the slacker. But I thought it was about time to add some new info and pics of what's been happening.
So, June came and went in the blink of an eye. Paul, me, and Ryder headed out to Utah on June 18th to surprise my mother-in-law Tracy the following day. My sister-in-law Michelle planned a dinner birthday party for her, and we were the surprise!! And boy was she surprised! It was so fun to see her face, and how quick she grabbed Ryder! ;) That was awesome! Then that Saturday my mom, me, and my sister-in-law Nicole threw Marie a Fairy Tale Room-0f-the-House shower at Mt. Ogden Park. The weather sucked, it rained throughout the shower, but we were under a pavilion, and lots of people came. Marie's so popular! There were Marie's friends, family, church friends, family friends, oh my! Lots of people and tons of great stuff, I was jealous!
After that fun weekend, Paul and I snuck away to the Anniversary Inn in Logan before he had to leave that next week. It was nice to take a break and to celebrate Father's Day and have Grandma and Grandpa bond with their favorite little guy. Then, Paul took off on the airplane back to Iowa, and Ryder and I stayed for 2 extra weeks before Marie's wedding. It was a lot of fun to be around my family and Paul's too. Everyone got to enjoy Ryder!

Then, Paul came back the day before Marie's wedding and we left the following Sunday. Her wedding day was so beautiful! She was a blushing gorgeous bride (Kagen's super lucky!) and it was so nice to be there for the sealing. My whole family's married and we all have kids (except Marie, but she has PLENTY of time!) and we're entering such a different part of life. It's way weird! I find myself constantly saying how weird life is, and how fast time goes by. But it's a good weird, it's just strange to see your siblings all grown up and with their own new families. But I love it! I'm so glad they have found their loves
Anyway, I could go on forever about all the fun stuff that we did, but here's just a few of the things: the zoo, a pool, the movies, Anniversary Inn (twice!), hiking trail, parks, shopping, hanging out with friends, taking family pictures, and I could go on and on! Our trip was awesome!
Paul's mom
shocked at her!
