A New Addition to the Household

A little gift for you...

.. and we hope you are excited...

... to welcome a new baby!

Scott and I are excited to announce that we are expecting a little boy to join our family in December! He is expected to join us on the 30th and hope he sticks to that date so he isn't close too Christmas and is still joining us in 2014. ;-)

I am excited to document the journey from now (4.5m) until he arrives. I hope you don't get too sick of the baby crazy that will be coming from this blog.

Summer 2014, So Far

As Scott and my past summers we have been super busy. This was my first weekend at home in 5 weekends! It has been great with 2 trips to Island Park, one to Wisconsin for reunion, and one to Texas. Some updates on the trips are below:

Island Park
I love Island Park and enjoy being there. Now if you could cut the drive down by 2 hours it would be ideal (and we would go up there every week). The first weekend we went up for Henry Fork Foundation celebration. We were able to do some fishing and celebrating the river (30 years, I believe).

 The second weekend we went up there for Independence Day. It was a good weekend where everyone, but Nicci/Bill/Olie, were able to attend. We spent the days relaxing, playing in the lake, and taking a Rzr ride.

One, two, three...jump!
Over my birthday we went to Wisconsin to celebrate my 10th Reunion. It's crazy to think that I've been out of college that long!! It was great to get back together with everyone.  We went in a day early and toured Miller Brewing Company and went to dinner with Bill's (Nicci's husband) sister and her cute family. Friday we were able to tour Lambou Field before all the celebrations started. It was a great weekend seeing everyone and reliving the good 'ole days.

The swimmers! We did actually swim laps and did diving well sprints.

Junior year roomies! We tried to visit but no one was home.

I was able to attend Kappa's 70th Annual Convention in Houston, TX the last week in June. It was great seeing 1,100 women come together and get some business done in a jam packed 4 days. I was able to see 3 of my fellow chapter sisters (and actually met one of the founders for our chapter), hangout with my fellow PD's, and fellow Salt Lake ladies. Below are some photos that I remembered to take.

I love these two- Salt Lake Kappa's represent!
