The end result was great, thanks to my amazing friend Amanda Shepard and her talent for making us look good!

Summer - 1 year Photo Shoot

I can't believe Summer is already a year! She is that happiest baby ever! She loves to make funny noises and faces. She loves her big brother and her daddy. She can say daddy very well and is learning to say Scott, but it sounds like dot. Other words she can say are baby, pretty, hey, hi and uh-oh. She loves her baby doll that her grammy got her for her birthday. She is a petite but growing and is on track with her milestones. This week she figured out how to walk and is doing very well with it.

Ok, onto the photo bomb of her 1 year photo session. Thanks to my friend Amanda I love how the pictures turned out. Here are a few that I want to share.

10 Years!! Our Story thus Far

I can't believe that 10 years ago I married one of the cutest guys in my singles ward. Our story actually starts 11 years ago when we first met.

I was the new girl to him in the group that I was in and he was just fresh off of his mission and new to me. I actually persued him and it most definetly paid off. It didn't take much and we were dating. By April of 2003 we were engaged with the help of my bestie and a video camera.

a month of dating and i took him home to cali for my baby brother's blessing. Sept 2002.

Memorial Day Weekend Vacation

Ah summertime is finally here and school is out, that means Memorial weekend and Scott's birthday. This year we asked Scott what he wanted to do for his birthday. We gave him the option of going to Sea World and visting his cousins in San Diego or take a couple of friends to Sunsplash. He chose the first option.

We left Friday morning. Summer did very well, I was worried that she would get bored and fussy but she slept most of the way. Thank goodness for the improvement of baby food packaging! I love the food pouches, because I could screw on a spoon designed for them and feed her on the road! We hit traffic on our way into Carlsbad but made in just in time to check into our hotel. Matt's sister met up with us at our hotel, she lives up the road from the hotel we stayed at. I do recommend the Carlsbad by The Sea Resort, if you are planning a vaca to Carlsbad. So the kids swam for a little bit and then we headed to dinner.

Summer sleeping just before we got into San Diego.

Pinewood Derby

A couple of weeks ago it was our wards Pinewood Derby!

Scott and Matt and a fun time builing 'their' car along with the help of Papa, Matt's dad. Scott placed 2nd in his den and my nephew placed 1st for their den. Both boys were beaming as were their dads and papa. :)

It was a fun Saturday morning to be with friends and family. There was some competition with the other dens in our pack. There were some pretty good looking cars that went pretty fast down the tracks that's for sure.

Scott with this car!

Scott with his awards! He got best design.

Eating Better

Matt had me watch some shows about the food industry and our society and how the things were are eating are contributing to bad habits and unhealthy bodies. Well after watching those shows we decided to try to eat better by decreasing our meat intake and increase our intake of veggies and fruits. Well so far so good. We've done it for a week and making meatless meals for a week are easy. I still have those frozen meals that are mainly chicken and I will use them from time. My grocery trip was much lighter on my wallet. Scott loves the meals that I've made and gobbles them right up. :) I love that the meals take have the time than they did if there was a meat involved. I wanted to share with you some recipes that I've found, Pinterest is wonderful thing! Here is my Pinterest board Meatless Meals for some inspiration.
