Christmas Tree Adventure

 Well this was year two of our Christmas tree hunting adventure. We actually found a tree the first trip this year. We went up towards Green River Lakes first and took Moose Gysum Road. We saw a wolf running down the road and bear tracks. It was very pretty up there. Then we went to Half Moon and that is where we finally found our tree. I loved taking pics of my family they are the best thing in this world.

Me and Rem pulling "kissy faces" she is such a doll

The "burby" with our Christmas tree strapped to the top lol. Like I said before this rig makes me feel my real age, but it is a nice ride and such a great fit for our family.

Beef was doing snow angels

Half Moon....breathtaking view

Brad after he shook some trees to see if they would work. He was covered lol

 Isn't she just a doll!!!!

There was a ton of snow

My new hat Brad bought me

The kids playing in the snow at Half Moon

Tucker went straight to the water

These two  boys are so much fun, I am so blessed to have them be mine. They are the best of buddies....most days















This is what 8 hours of Christmas tree looking     exhaustion looks like, aren't they sweet. This man never misses a chance to snuggle with his kids. They love him so much and I am so lucky to have him in my life and get to raise our three amazing kids with him by my side.

Our New Ride


Well....we did it. We traded in our sweet lifted Ford for a family wagon. I guess it was time for me to stop feeling 23 and start feeling 28. I miss my truck but it was time to grow into something larger. This 2007 Chevy Suburban is nice. It has the leather and the heated seats. There is the DVD player and the kids have so much room. We bought the Z71 XLT package so we feel a little sportier (is that even a word haha). We are of course going to lift it so that will make me not feel so old. It is a nice vehicle and I am glad that we are able to afford things that make our trips home easier :)

Tuckers First Day of Third Grade

Like I said, I am so far behind this year! Tucker is now is third grade. He loves his teacher and he has grown so much this year. I am thankful that he is loving to read and he is really doing well in math.

This just shows what personality this little man has. Their hallway is the rivers so he was acting like he was swimming. LOL I love this little boy so much!

Quintan

 

 
How cool is it that this young man is in the army? He left in June and I have to say we have missed him so much. He will be home Dec 16th ish. My kids can not wait to see their "Uncie" and I have to say that I am looking forward to seeing the man this boy has become

Tucker Baptism

My sweet boy turned 8 this year and chose to be baptized. He was nervous about Papie holding him under the water for too long and was nervous about having to do it again, but he was a trooper and did so well. My Dad was able to baptize him and that was so great. It is so important to have the priesthood in our family and I am glad that we have my Dad.

 
We had everyone up for dinner and Tucker's big day. It was neat that we were able to do this on Brad's 30th birthday weekend.
 
Tucker is a sweet little spirit. He does not swear and when there is a bad word on the radio, he changes the station.  He makes me strive to be better. He is so caring and the biggest worry wort (I am sure that he gets that from me). I am so thankful Heavenly Father has trusted me with this special young man.

Wind River Range

I don't think we will ever be able to see all there is to see up here. The scenery is amazing and such a huge testament to our heavenly father. We go out driving around a lot and I of course am the picture Natzi haha. If you had a family that looked as good as mine you would take pictures all the time too. Just kidding, but what can I say they are just the best.
My hunk of burning love

My little beauty.

The Wind River Mountain Range, this is a site to see!!!!!

Middle Piney


This is Middle Piney. This is Brad's favorite spot around. The water is amazing and its a very pretty place. This is where Brad spends his "Guys Trip" weekend. I never realized why he always went to the same place until he took us there this last summer. Its breath taking!
        Seriously, what is there not to love about this man? He is the best looking thing I have ever seen. He makes me laugh every day and always gives me butterflies. I cant imagine what my life would have been without this amazing man! Gosh he is so freaking hot!!!!!


My life, what more can I say? This group makes my life!!!


Kids Pics

Here are some cute pics. These kids grow so fast!!!!
Beef and I getting ready for church

Beef and his rain boots, he wears these all over

The kids last year Halloween haha I made them as the Goonies they were so cute!

Tucker's Wrestling Group

Tucker's fish. Tucker spent a lot of time in town this summer since we live so far out. He spent a lot of time riding around on his bike, fishing at the kids pond in the middle of town, and eating ice cream from Rock Rabbit. I cant believe how much he has grown. He is little Mr. Independent.

Bry sporting his Dad's hat

Fishing Adventure

As a family, we love to go out fishing. Okay I may not love it, so I eat sunflower seeds and take pictures lol, but my kids and Brad love it.
I couldn't get over how cute this picture is. These three boys are one of the best parts of my life.

These two little boys are so much fun. They love to fish!

Beef and his pole

Rem and I dressed to impress haha

Brad bought me a new four wheeler this last year. We spent a lot of time riding around :) One weekend we took a long ride and Tucker had stayed in Malad to spend time at Grandma and Nana's. We went out from about 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. the kids were exhausted. As you can see below Rem passed our and she was so dirty and Beefer was out cold and blowing bubbles haha. We really enjoyed riding around and seeing all the new places. We will do A LOT more this next summer.



Moose In Pinedale

So I think that it is pretty cool that we get to see these amazing creatures so frequently. Makes me thankful for my heavenly father and all the things he created for us. It is neat living in Wyoming :)



Island Park 2013

I didn't take as many pictures as I usually do this year, not sure what was wrong with me. We went to Island Park this year for the parentals anniversary weekend in June. It was a blast as usual. We did a lot more sitting out by the campfire this year and that was fun. Aunt Lynn and Wyatt came up this year so that made it another great year of total family enjoyment. We also had Jaden living with us at that point still so he was able to come and see what it's like a enjoy family time.
Me and My Little Miss I ADORE her!

The boys, they were all in blue kinda funny. Aren't they the cutest!

Beef and Kelty are best buddies they held hands all over. It was so cute!

This is on the way up the hot springs at Mammoth.

We took the floating trip like usual. It is always fun!!!

Love these girls!!!!
 
 
It was so much fun, I enjoy the time we spend at the cabin. You can never have enough of the wide open space, the new things and the laughs we have. I am so blessed to be a part of my family.
