{May (before baby) Fun}

Rylan did a round of baseball in the spring. This year coach pitch!  A little more pressure, but Rylan did great. He got hits and on base in every game but one.  He enjoyed playing the various positions, but still had a hard time focusing in general on the game!! But he had a great time!

 We loved having Coach Ray for the second year!
 And always great to have cousin Graham on the team!

Mother's Day photo with these kiddos!  Love them so very much! They are my whole world!

I was on the Mormon Prom committee again this year. Our Stake was in charge of the dance decorations.  My friend Tiffany is the master mind and the rest of just worker bees.  We spent 2 full days setting up and then attended the dance too. Super fun to be part of and turned out fantastic.  So grateful these teenagers have such an awesome and wholesome event to attend!

Rylan had to dress up as something starting with an 'R'....which made it so dang easy to be a runner!  For the win!

Trevor and I finally were able to sneak away to the temple to take Carson to do baptisms for the dead. It was his first time, and we even had some family names to do thanks to my aunts for helping out!! It was such a great experience to be there with him!

And then we had a weight check ultrasound at about 36 weeks.  I took these two guys (+ Trevor) with me.  It's much harder to see what you are viewing on an ultrasound when the baby is 36 weeks vs. 20 weeks! She is so crammed in there! They were calculating her weight right at 6 pounds even. Makes me a little nervous considering I have 4 weeks to go and is typically the baby's biggest weight gain time.  Yikes!!  So happy to see her in there happy and healthy! We absolutely can't wait to meet her!!!  
Typical Miles ...hugging my belly.  He loves his sister already!

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?

More about me here.
