summer time.....the livin's easy

Summer is full of so many memories- fresh cut grass, lemonade, pool side bbq, sand volley ball, croquet, family, walks up the canyon, bike rides, warm summer nights... each new summer all of these memories come flooding back. I adore summer life and now enjoy it even more with our new little family. Here are some fun pics of what we have been up to!

Memorial Day

Jennifer's Birthday........25!!

We went up to Timpanogas park. The fam played croquet and had a picnic.

My other sister Heidi is pregers and has been extremely sick!! She has been in and out of the hospital getting IVs and has lost A LOT of weight. This day was the first day she put mascara on in almost 3 weeks so I thought she deserved a picture.

Trevor is going to be a great dad. He loves Steele and is excited to be a dad.

My new jogging stroller! It is so nice to start running again. Steele loves it too and Tea sits in the front just above the front tire.

Sunday outfits are my favorite. The only thing is that it makes him look way too grown up. There are two babies in our ward that are just days younger than him and they still look like little new born babies! They're tiny and make Steele look like a six month old! He has super strong legs and neck. I have been practicing his standing.

Sunday napping

He is almost strong enough to sit in his Bumbo.

He looks like a total OINKER in the first picture below. I just love it! The few after show just how CHUNKY my little boy is. Keep in mind he is only 8 weeks. He has his 2 month doctor visit tomorrow and I am so anxious to see what he weights.

I want you to guess.....
Double Chin/ Big Gut

More Cleavage Than MOMMY

Seriously LONG


Here comes my BIG double chin smiley boy!
(Please ignore my obnoxious voice...the things we do to make our children smile.)

Last Friday we went boating with Carrie and Josh. I didn't want to worry about Steele so I pumped a bottle over a couple of days and left him with my mom (we have never given him a bottle so we were pretty brave to leave him- he took it just fine!). We enjoyed a day on the boat and both went wake boarding for the first time in TWO years. It was a blasts! Thanks Carrie and Josh!

Wipe Out!

I don't want to leave TEA out. She is loving her little brother. They have naps together and Steele even roughs her up a little:)

She has been spending a lot of time with her best friend Bronco. He is really nice to her, can you tell?
We found this is a picture of my little brother Ryan. Don't Steele and him look a ton a like?

Steele is so adorable! He is getting so big! And your dog is cute as well. I love the pic of them taking a nap together. So sweet!

Steele totally looks like Ryan when he was a baby. He's so adorable with his chubby little cheeks. I hope Heidi gets feeling better :( Hopefully the sickness passes soon.

kels&murr said...

Oh my heck, he is the cutest thing ever! I loved that Tea rides in the stroller with you- thats hilarious! Em you look darling!

Wow he is big for a 2 month old. I think its great how you still include your dog in everything, because you always hear stories about how once the baby is born, the dog gets forgotten. Love all the pictures.
