We accept the love we think we deserve.

Monday we had a little family get together BBQ at doctors pool for Pioneer day. We went swimming and had some good food cooked by my dad and Mel made a great salad. I was still a little sad about Sammy, so I was happy the BBQ wasn't at my parents. It still seems weird to not see that little guy walking around the house, it just seems different with out him. 

I brought Olive with us I thought it would be fun for her to come. It was her first time swimming in a pool. You should check it out, I had to kind of save her life haha

She was SO mad at me afterwards :( Poor little baby.

She looks like a completely different dog when she's wet.

Cora <3's the water!

Here's Corbin showing off on the diving board. He's pretty good with his flips, the boys thought he was so cool!

We leave for California on Friday! Cj and I are very excited to finally have a vacation and celebrate our 1 year anniversary!!

Time flies...

Last week was pretty hectic. I worked every single day. It was so hard! I feel bad for the people who work full time, it's a lot of work. But I survived. The week before we worked I went to Lagoon with Matt, Melissa and the kids. I had so much fun! It was just what I needed.

I didn't take very many pictures at lagoon but we had a lot of fun. 

One day after work Cj and I went up to Nun's park up in the mountain's. It's so pretty up there. We brought a blanket, in and out, and Olive. It was interesting with Olive, she was scared of the water haha She's just a really hard dog to take anywhere b/c you never know how she'll act.

Friday we went fishing and Cj caught a trout. He was terrified b/c we didn't have our friend Aldric with us who knows all about fishing. Cj couldn't get the hook out of the fish. I felt so bad for the little guy he was just bleeding all over and Cj was digging around for the hook :( Finally Cj put him out of his misery. We took him home he gutted him, cooked him, and ate him. he was very proud.

My good friend Makel showed me this yogurt place called yogurtland. I am addicted. That place is amazing. They have about 12 different yogurts you can choose from and like over 25 different toppings. At the end you just weigh it and pay. I believe it's like 33 cents an ounce,which isn't too bad if your smart with how much you get. Anyways I've taken Sunny there like 3 times. They now have hello kitty there, so fun!

This weekend has been hard, if you read below we lost our pet dog Sammy. I was doing pretty good last night until I said goodbye to him and saw him and it made me upset again. I miss that little wiener dog so much already! I love you Sammy.

Sammy and Benjamin from France!

You lived a good life Sammy, thanks for being such a great dog to our family.

This is my favorite little brother. He made this video all by himself. It's pretty rad what he can do! Love you brother.

R.I.P Sammy

Last night was a really hard night. Sammy, our family dog got hit by a truck and died instantly. I got a phone call around 9:40pm last night from my little sister crying telling me Sammy got hit. Cj and I immediately got up and went over to my parents. Luckily my parents neighbor brother fairbourn was home and was able to help my mom get him out of the street (She just had surgery on her arm, and it's hard for her to use). Sammy was wrapped up in a towel laying on the kitchen floor when we got there. He looked peaceful and it happened quick. I just didn't know it would be that hard to have a family pet/dog pass away. Cj and I got home and I just kept thinking about him and I would start to cry. I was so happy to have Cj to help comfort me when I was upset. 

He will be very very missed. The house isn't the same with out him. I loved him so much, he was such a good dog. I hope your happy in doggie heaven Sammy!

Miss you mister mister!

This week was a lot of fun. We had our cousins visit from California, Karinne, Mike and Andrew. On Wednesday we went to Veterans pool. I haven't been there in a long time, it was a lot of fun. Even though I mostly hung out with Andrew in the kiddie pool :)

He is such a cutie pie! I love him!

Yes, Mike took him down the big slide! 

Later the Clayton's came over to hang out. Andrew and Cora were so cute together. At first they weren't so sure about each other. But they finally warmed up to each other and followed each other everywhere.

Melissa got me the CUTEST earrings and ring for babysitting the kids.

Cute huh?

Friday we went to the Octopus park (I'm not sure the real name of the park). Andrew loves water.

And balls too.

Cj and Andrew.

Sammy and Andrew.

Karinne and Andrew.

We had a lot of fun with them.

Yesterday we went camping in the Spanish Fork canyon. It was SO pretty, and lots of fun.

It felt so good to come home and shower! I hope everyone had a great weekend. Sorry for the picture overload.

Ok I'm done.

The beginning of July.

We had lots of fun this July. Lots of photo's, warning.

Me and Olive chilling outside. 

Early morning at work with the air balloons. 

Corbin on the slip n' slide! So fun. 

Sunny went with friends swimming and obviously didn't wear any sunscreen. She payed for it later. 

Mom and Dad playing bad-mitten.  

Sister Haley 

Haley and her boyfriend 

I stayed away from the fireworks and stuck with sparklers :) 

Cj's so fun to take pictures with. He always likes to look so cute. Wink wink. 

Olive was terrified of the fireworks. We couldn't find her, we were calling for her and we thought she ran away. Then I found her next to Sunny underneath the computer desk.
