Lake Powell

Like everyone else I know, we made it to Lake Powell this year too. I swear it seems like every day somebody is going there, coming back, updating their blog with fun pictures, so I decided that in order to be like everyone else, I'd better go. Sooo, my sister in law Jamie was having a family reunion, so when she said we were invited of course we came! Her family is great, and we had a fabulous time. I won't post 300 pictures, just a few of my favorites. Aren't you amazed at my knee boarding skills?


Danny providing food for his family. Who needs a fishing pole when a net is so much easier?!?

Allie and two of her favorite people on this planet. Libby and Auntie Jamie.

Danny getting some air.

Me and my sleepy baby girl.

Once again, Danny found a large thing to climb, and then proceeded to jump from it. I'm starting to see a trend developing here. He's my hero. No way I was climbing up there.

Yeah... I'd say it's pretty Grand!

Ok, if you haven't been to the Grand Canyon, you need to. Everyone has got to see this place, at least one in their lives. Amazing. We went a few weeks ago, and it was so incredible. My only regret was that we didn't give ourselves time to see more of it, or go hiking. Well, the girls and I didn't get to go, but that didn't exactly stop Danny. As usual, he likes to find the most dangerous thing he can possibly find, and climb it, wearing only sandals and with no equipment or anything. Strangely enough I wasn't all that scared as I was watching him do it, it was so surreal, but am more scared now as I'm looking at the 3000 pictures of him I took during his little adventure. There was a whole group of people watching him out there, captivated, not able to believe me when I said "no he's not a professional rock climber, he's just insane." I was proud of him for being so brave, but I hope he doesn't try it again.
At about this point I was hoping Danny might turn around, but no. I should have known better.

I was so relieved when I saw his little head pop up over the back side of the rock. I'm kind of glad he climbed up the back side because I think I would have had a heart attack watching him do this.This kind of shows you a better view of where he climbed. Arrow shows my crazy husband.Allie, watching safely behind the fence.Me and my girls. Picture taken by one of the many people gathered around watching the crazy guy.

Lily's First Birthday

Obviously I'm quite behind, since Lilys' birthday was about a month ago. It doesn't mean we love her any less, just means I've got lots of pictures and limited time. I wanted to at least post the pictures from her Birthday Party.
This is definitely not one of my better cakes, but Allie helped me make this lady bug cake and we had a good time at least. :)

We had breakfast for dinner, and Lily got to have eggs since she's ONE!Hmmmm... cake. She had reason to seem a little skeptical. She ended up throwing it all up that night in her crib. Poor little girl.

Allie's First Dance Recital

Allie had her first dance recital a few months ago but I am just now getting to the video portion. She was so cute, and did a great job. I was so proud of her.
