Fantastic Picture Taking Skills

We had the opportunity to go ride horses with Courtney and Landon while they were in town. It was so fun! I tried to capture some pictures with my phone, but this is all we got.


Ty and Grandpa decided it would be fun to dress alike. :)
Can I just say that I LOVE these two men!!!

How to be a cowGIRL...

Gingerbread Houses!!!

We always do boys vs. girls and we had such a great time. Emi and Livi were especially crafty this year. And Dax decided he would rather sit with the girls (we are way better). Unfortunately little Gabbi was sick so she didn't get to decorate. This is what we ended up with...

This lovely number was made by Kari, Taylor, Dani, Katie, Emi, Livi and Dax.

The boys decided to take a football theme and decorated their house with the Chargers colors and logo. This was made by Ty, Ry, and Gager...

Not too hard to guess who won. Mom couldn't decide, so we invited the Hallsted's over and in the end the WIN went to the girls with "most original" for the boys.

Pre-Wedding Pictures...

This is all before we got married.
We'll start with Ty's birthday. I already posted about this in July, but I never put the pictures up. Re-cap...It was an eventful day. I threw him a surprise party at the park. Both of our families came and some friends. I gave Ty a beach cruiser, we went for a bike ride and everyone was waiting for us at the park. We had a BBQ and water gun/water balloon fight. It turned out great! Right before we left for the party we found out our offer had been accepted on our house, it was a great feeling and we just love our home. It has been so fun decorating and making it ours. The night before I had taken Ty to Joe's Crab Shack for birthday dinner. Here are the pictures...
Right before the party, this is our "we have a house!!!" picture.Me being absolutely soaking wet from the water fight. Somehow I ended up being the main target of every child there.Ty at Joe's Crab they sang to him they made him say "I have pretty crabs".These next pictures are from our 4th of July trip to Heber/Snowflake with my family. Heber has the most amazing fireworks. The only year I have ever missed was the summer I lived in Hawaii. We went hiking and fishing for Olivia's 3rd birthday, but somehow I ended up with no pictures from fishing. Ty and I also took time to go walk around the Snowflake Temple.Just a lil shout out to 2 of my favorite people... Bailee, my bestest cousin. Grandpa Laron, one of the greatest men I know. Love you both!This is just a random night that we spent playing in the backyard with our puppy, Jersey. She is almost twice that size now.We also got the chance to go see Wicked again with my siblings.

I am finally getting around to posting some pictures from the last little while. They may be a bit out of order...

These are pictures from our honeymoon. The first two nights we stayed at the Arizona Grand (previously known as the Point). Our room was fabulous! This was the view.Next we stayed at the Westin for one night (Thank you Kasey and Danny!).

And then we were off on our cruise!! It was so so fun!! This is Ty, being so excited to board the ship. This was his first cruise, my I kept my cool. :)Oh you know, just singing a little Journey for the crowd...Dinner was always fantastic. The food in general was fantastic...we ate way too much, but it was so worth it!On our way in to Catalina, we went snorkeling there and ate at a delicious sea food restaurant overlooking the ocean.

This is Ensenada...we just did some shopping and went on a little tour.The rest of the pics are on the ship...and yes, that is the real sky. It was amazing!!!
