Jumpin' July

July has gone by so quickly. It is like we've jumped through it! Here's what has been happening in our neck of the woods:

1.) We bought our very first house!!!

2.) We got a new niece, Leah.

3.) Adam won a brand new grill at Texas Roadhouse.

4.) Eli went to his very first 4th of July parade and fireworks. The parade was a little noisy for him, but strangely he loved the fireworks. He tried so hard to stay awake, but didn't quite make it.

5.) Eli turned 7 months old. His two front teeth on top are coming in.

6.) Eli played in the water outside in our new yard.

7.) Eli had his first finger painting experience. He was helping his cousins make a welcome home sign for his grandparents. He loved it, until he took a bath with a blue painted Locklynn and got scared! I guess he won't be watching the Blue Man group anytime soon!

8.) We spent time in Utah with family that was visiting. There we went on a hike to Donut Falls and in the Albion Bason at Alta to see wildflowers, we played at the nickelcade, we had family pictures, had a hot dog roast, and swam at Seven Peaks. Adam and I also attended the Jordan River temple since we had a lot of eager babysitters!

Look! He stood himself up!
See the moose in the background?

9.) We've also been doing a lot of unpacking, unpacking, and unpacking! It is a slow process with Adam's work schedule and a baby that is learning to crawl and get into everything!


  1. We loved seeing you! You should come down again before your passes expire!

  2. In the second from the last picture Eli looks so grown up. His hair looks so cute! Such a handsome boy!
