August Days, pt. 2

We were running around playing a few days ago and I realized Meri had band-aid art.

August Days

Just a normal Sunday morning at our place…


Top of the Morning!

Some mornings you just have to pop the screen out of your bedroom window and take a picture of the clouds! 11728826_10154503772292524_9129415765576263151_o


Tonight is the final performance of the Manti Mormon Miracle Pageant!! :)

Thankful for summer nights full of scriptural truth and hope.

A few pics from last night – love these little Nephites!

Have patience, sir

Why, Hi There.


Hyrum discovered a new friend this morning! It started on the bed with a peek: He then scootched over the edge – ever so carefully… to get a closer look. One of the best friends you can have in this life buddy!
