7 posts in 1 day

15 August 2012
Ok, so I got really behind on my blogging, and I thought it would be a grand idea to try and catch up.

I was up until the wee hours of the morning doing them, but I did manage to get SEVEN new blog posts done (see below)! Holla! Needless to say, they're all mostly pictures and not a lot of actual "blogging", but at least it's something! :)

Birthday Boating

My brother Ty, and his now 1 y/o daughter Ella decided they wanted to celebrate their birthdays together with family on the lake. And we didn't complain.

 Ella's first time tubing! This was a day before her first birthday! She was a real champ. Didn't cry once! 

Brother Ty. He's the pro.

My first time wake SURFING. You can tell I look a little unnatural, but I had so much fun.

Sweet Ella with a sunny mohawk
What do you think? Is Mom enjoying herself?

Girls Camp

July 23 - 27, 2012

Girls Camp was a lot of fun. The stake was in charge this year, and they did a fantastic job! The theme was "Light Your Torch at the Olympics", and they did a lot of fun Olympic-type games/challenges. The girls had a blast.

I was only there for the first 2 days because I had to get back to work, but I actually had a blast, and I was so impressed with how great all of the girls got along. They were so sweet and supportive of each other. I was sad to leave early.

A little gift for the girls to go along with a devotional.

Up bright and early and still beautiful and excited for camp!

A couple of our YW are dancers...Can you tell?

On our hike...

Love them!

July 4th

We had a nice, chill 4th of July this year. In the afternoon, I dragged Eric to Ann Morrison Park for the Chalk Art Festival. Afterward we sat by the fountain, watched the kids play in the water and enjoyed some yummy italian ice.

Then, we moved the party to Jason and Sheri's for a BBQ and swimming.

*** Lastly, Fun with Sparklers ***

Nelson Reunion

At Steven & Mary's in AZ

Girl's Day - lunch & pedis - while the boys (actually, just Patrick & Eric) babysat all 12 nieces & nephews

Buddies Ava & Paige scope out Sedona

Mary cliff-jumping!

After all these years, Patrick & Eric still like to hold hands :)

Cutie Patootie!

Go Amy!

Love this pic of Paigey Pie

These boys! Always competing.

Allison had an awesome idea to throw Patalie a suprise (half) Bday/luau party.
And what's a suprise party without Eric jumping out of a box and doing a little Gloria Estefan shimmy?...
