Baby's Room

After borrowing countless tools from my generous parents, about 15 trips to Home Depot and some good quality time with Mike in this little room, it is finished! Now all we need is our little boy!
Testing out the paint colors...the bottom initially was too dark...hence, one of the 15 trips to Home Depot.My mom and I sewed this valence together! She also made an adorable pillow out of the same fabric to toss in the crib.

4th of July

We had a fun day with some great friends to celebrate the 4th.
Check out this cake that our friend Melise made from scratch!
The boys had fun playing basketball in the pool and grilling



Then at night we met up with my cousins to watch fireworks. Laura and Rachel were both in town, and it was so good to see them!!
Rachel brought her puppy Samson. Him and Sophie (my parents dog) had quite the time together. Samson would charge ahead in Sophie's face, then as soon as Samson turned around, that was the only time Sophie got courage to chase after. What a wimp.My dad is off on a solo open-ocean sailing adventure from San Diego to Catalina Island...well almost solo. He has this little pup to accompany him. Don't worry. She also has a life-vest in case she falls overboard. It has a handle on the top for easy retrieval.My brother Jason was also in town from Salt Lake!
