So every year the circus comes to town around my birthday! So it is only fitting to go. I just LOVE seeing the elephants. They are so darn cute.

Mandi Bartlett's Bridals

So I took my friend Mandi Bartletts Bridals and her wedding last night so I thought I would post a few. You can see more on my photography blog later. The below pictures are just her bridals.

What a Weekend

I am babysitting Tony and Karen's dog, his name is "Doog"and he is a cuddler. He has been sleeping on the bed with Millie and I and it has been so funny. Millie has been dying because my attention has been split and I would have to say she is really jealous. So on Friday night after returning home from a girls night out with Janelle and Alyssa (We saw the movie The Women), I was talking with my roommate Chelsi and looked over to see this. It was so cute.

I love this picture above because Doog has his little paw over Chelsi's arm
On Saturday I had a fantastic day and now that it is Sunday I am paying for it dearly. Let me explain. So Saturday morning I got a text for Jen and she was taking the boat out to Utah Lake and invited me to come in the morning. So we went wake boarding. Marielle and Jen both rock at wake boarding so I snapped a few shots.

The picture below is Jen catching mad air and clearing the wake

After boating with the girls, I raced to get to Kneaders for our early Christmas party of boating at Deer Creek. So again I went out and knee boarded, tubed, and again wake boarded. So when I woke up this morning I felt like I had been hit by a speeding train. I am SOOO sore. Arms, legs, stomach, back... all of it is so sore. As I was changing I told the dog, man I am getting old... that is how I feel. I feel like I am getting old and rickety.
After the boating party I went to Ryan Shrupe and the Rubberband at Thanksgiving point. It was a really good show. I love concerts where they just jam and show off their talent as artists. It was fun and laid back.

My thoughts exactly as I first saw the commercial on TV about JR. Banana Split
then much to my suprise today as I was driving down the hill from Orem to Provo I saw the sign. SURE BLISS. They are the perfect size and taste so delicious.
Excuse the multiple posts. I just had so many things that I hadn't posted about and felt I should catch up.

Aunt Veryl and Uncle Wayne

I just love sepia tone pictures... As said below in a lower post we saw my Great Aunt Veryl and Uncle Wayne over Labor day and I couldn't resist snapping a few pictures. They are amazing. The best part is that Kennedy took a very keen liking to Uncle Wayne. She would not leave his side and it was the cutest thing.

Fish Lake

For labor day my family went to Fish Lake for a little camping trip. It was so much fun! Andy and Emily bought a new motor home, and we took my parents pop up trailer and parked on our Great Aunt and Uncle Veryl and Wayne's property.  It was Coopers 6Th birthday on Monday September 1st so we celebrated on Friday night so he could enjoy his toys. It is such a fun age for him right now. He is so enthusiastic about everything. He got Walle stuff, Connect Four, and a new four wheeler. He was crazy about it. Kennedy became obsessed with being on the Four wheeler or what she called "bike". Every time she got off she would cry and then walk around begging each of us for a ride on the bike. Cooper and Kennedy had a few on their own rides, which was so cute to watch. 
Our Great Aunt and Uncle are 93 and doing so well. They drove up to have dinner and spend the afternoon with us and they were so funny. My great Aunt Veryl wanted a four wheeler ride so she got on it and had JJ take her for a ride. So hilarious. 
Cooper and I got sick while on the trip and had a little case of the 24 hour flu, which wasn't so fun.  It would have only been fitting to go to Fish Lake and fish. So one afternoon we headed to the lake to fish. Cooper got a new fishing pole and Andy had a all new tackle box and fishing pole and so we fished. Cooper was quickly bored, 
but Andy and JJ each caught a fish.  Nothing worth bragging about, they were the smallest fish I have ever seen caught. Kennedy wanted nothing to do with the fish at first, but after some time warmed up to the dead fish and thought it was sleeping. Not to mention she kept trying to clean or wash the fish and feed it water. It was pretty funny. At the end of the day we had her carry the fish back to the car and it was priceless. 

I thought I would post of a few of my favorite pictures. For the rest of them I will put in a slide show. It is so great to have Andy, Emily, Cooper and Kennedy home from Switzerland. They are so great to have around. We just can't get enough of them.
