It's been awhile

I decided that it has been awhile since I had a photoshoot with Jake. This morning when Jacob was up and at 'em at 7 o'clock I decided to take advantage of it.


Elise Seely Brubaker

Jacob and Abby had a Memorial Day baby. Elise aka Ellie was born Monday, May 25th at 12:29 pm. She was 6 lbs. 3 oz. 19.5 inches long. She is so tiny. It makes me realize how fast Jacob is growing. Congrats you guys.

Memorial Weekend

We had a great memorial day weekend. We went up to midway and hung out with Tiff and Jacob and Jacob and Abby and their kids. We had a blast. We went to Zermatt and played... we played mini golf and the kids went on the carousel. On Monday we went to Chris and Lisa's house for a BBQ with Ryan's family. The food was yummy and the company was great. Jacob really enjoyed vegging out with Grandma Bonne!!! Can you say relaxed? I need Grandma Bonne around all the time to keep him this relaxed.

Sister Jani is Home

One of my best friends got home from her mission!!! I have been seeing pictures of her with my parents for the past year and it is good to have her home and in my pictures. Welcome home, Jani.


A very special weekend

This weekend was my first Mother's Day and it was a wonderful one. It was made very special by Jake's blessing in church on Sunday!! Ryan was such a sweetheart and took care of Jake so I could get in a afternoon nap. It was heavenly!!! Thanks to all who came to share Jake's special day with us.

Our little family.

Lots of fun cousins.

St. George Couples Trip

Two weekends ago we went to St. George with a bunch of our favorite people. It was a very short trip but so much fun. We left Friday afternoon and got to St. George around 7. We stayed in a beautiful historic home with the most beautiful yard. It even had a swimming pool and hot tub. We ate yummy food, played tennis, laid by the pool and had a very relaxing sunday dinner under the gigantic trees in the yard. It was so great to be with all of our friends. Thanks Dave and Nat for making the 'very' long drive:) We are looking forward to the next vacation. Lets start planning!!!

The girls...Sarah, Me, Marianne and Nat.

Biking with the Boys

While I was in St. George last weekend Ryan went mountain biking with my brothers. He had a blast!! Here are some pictures of the fun adventure.

Hanging out with Cousins

Yesterday Jake and I went up to SLC to hang out with the Munns clan. We got a very tasty breakfast at Cafe Niche, went to Hip and Humble and went to Mom and me pilates. It was a great day!!
