Saxon chilling at the pool

Saxon loves to hang out poolside.


Giff and Jenna coming to visit

We had so much fun on Saturday hanging with Giff, Jenna, and Maddox. They had a layover at LAX for a few hours so we picked them up and went and explored Venice Beach with them.

The fair

We went to the annual OC fair with Brooke and Spencer Thompson on Friday the 7/20. It was so fun.

I loved going down the slide with Brooke it brought back great memories of the carnies in high school who let us go for free down the slide.

Pictures of Saxon at 5 1/2 months old

Saxon and I went to Babies R Us last week and took some pictures of Saxon. He was such a ham. I was cracking up the whole time. He had the biggest smile in all of the pictures. I decided to get the one with his usual huge smile and then one with his cute mischevious smile.

Saxon at 5 weeks

I saw this picture in my photos and got sad. I can't believe how fast these little ones grow. This was Saxon at 5 weeks now he is almost 6 months.

The River Trip

The Beutlers invited us to their house on the Colorado River. We had such a great time. It was about 110 degrees outside but the water felt so refreshing. We had a blast surfing behind the boat, swimming in the river, and just enjoying the peace and quiet.

The 4th of July

We had an excellent 4th of July. We started out the day going to our stake 4th of July performance which was a great reminder of how grateful we our for our country and our freedom. We then went to the Huntington Beach parade with the Beutlers which has become a family tradition. After the parade we walked to the beach and enjoyed the great weather, the sand, and the warm water. Tad, Saxon, and I then went home and went swimming in our pool. We finished off the day by going back to the Beutlers and enjoying a BBQ and then walking down to the Beach to watch the fireworks! It was such a great day. I love spending time with family and friends. I am so grateful for our country and our freedom.
