Alone at Last!

Brett and I got to take a fun trip for four days to Denver, Colorado to celebrate our anniversary. It's been 2 years since we've been away by ourselves overnight and we had a great time. It was so nice to be able to spend time together and actually be able to have a conversation with each other, without children interrupting or being too tired to really pay attention each other - ya know, life getting in the way. I was so relaxing and fun. I can't wait to do it again!

15th Anniversary

Brett and I celebrated our 15th anniversary yesterday. It is so weird to think that we've been married for that long. It really feels like just yesterday we were newlyweds - oh how time flies by!
Being married to Brett has been the biggest blessing in my life! He is wonderful, the love of my life, and I pray that our lives will be as happy in the next fifteen years as they have been in the last fifteen.
So to honor fifteen years of wedded bliss (haha, but I wouldn't change a thing!), here's 15 pics of Brett and me...........




Swim Lessons

I try to have my girls take swim lessons every summer, just to improve their swimming skills (they swim fine - hello, we live in az - it's just mostly to give us something to do for 2 weeks), and this year is no exception. I have good little swimmers!



SOPHIE took beginning diving this year and did pretty good. She probably had as many belly flops as dives but she's getting better and better!



EMERY did really well this year and was one of the fastest swimmers, especially when it came to the backstroke. That's her specialty!

MAGGIE loved swim lessons this year (thank goodness!). The last couple years she's really hated it, but this year she had lots of fun and is a really good swimmer now.
