Our 12th Anniversary

Here we are 12 years ago, our engagement picture! Our wedding was one of the best days of my life (only to be equaled with the birth of our 4 beautiful children). It was a perfect day, everything was just as I had always dreamed it would be. From the weather, to the flowers, to the cake, to the many friends and family who helped make it so perfect. Doug was so willing to give me the wedding of my dreams. He really liked the Manti temple and had always pictured a winter wedding but I had never dreamed of any temple other that the Salt Lake temple and of course a summer wedding! He was willing to sacrifice everything for me and he has been doing it everyday for the last 12 years! I am so blessed to have him as my husband. Every year we grow closer and closer. We laugh that we feel the same as we did 12 years ago, that we have not changed at all, not a day older, then we look around and the familiar saying of "Who are these kids and why are they all calling us Mom & Dad?" We realize we have really come a long way and what a fabulous journey it has been. I can't wait to see what is coming next!!
I am looking forward to another great year, with the most amazing husband and the worlds greatest kids!! Where ever we go, whatever we do, as long as we're together I know it is going to be wonderful, exciting and full of happiness!!

Antelope Hunt

Oh a hunting we will go!!

When it was to hot to hunt we would relax at camp and eat lots and lots of goodies! I got to do some really fun stuff like shoot my grandpa's gun at our pop cans, Grandpa thought I was just lucky when my first shot hit the can but I keep shooting and I kept hitting that can over and over! That was fun!! I also spent time....

Practicing with my sling shot at a real target!!

and catching hornetoads!!! It was so much fun!! When is our next hunt, I'm ready to go!!!!!
