I'm Back

I know I know I have been gone for awhile. We have been busy busy busy. I am going to try to catch you up on our lives but it is going to take a couple post to do it. I decided I would mostly post pictures of the last couple of months with a brief summary of the activities. (Click on the pictures to view larger image.)

This was Kiana first year doing sports! She played on a soccer team with Provo parks and rec. She was so adorable and it was so fun to watch her play.

We attended the Wells family reunion this year and it was a blast! It was in Idaho. We camped for a couple nights. We were close to the sand dunes and a nice little lake to swim in.

Here are some pictures of us this summer hanging out with friends. We spent a lot of our summer hanging our with friends and family. We love them so much!
One of my best Friends Kadie had a birthday in June. This is us celebrating on the left. On the right is my Bunco group. I miss these girls so much we had a lot of fun once a month with our girls night out (aka Bunco night).
We made a trip to Atlanta Georgia this summer to visit Brandon's sister Dede. We had a great time (even though the airlines lost our bags). The pictures below are of us at 6 flags. The girls loved it!
This is the fourth of July at Dede's house. We spent some of the day at The Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial. The girls loved the fireworks we lit at Dede's house that evening. The sparklers were their favorite!

We also made a trip to Charlotte North Carolina to visit Brandon's other sister Sandy. We had a great time hanging by their pool and the girls loved getting to see their cousins. Notice that they are all girls. Their are 6 grandchildren on Brandon's side and they are all girls, with another girl on the way.

Okay this is a start. I am caught up through July, now I just have August through November :)

Life on the Ranch

Okay I am finally getting around to posting about our life on the ranch. It has been fun living on the ranch again. It is so different. I love the peacefulness and it is the most beautiful place on earth. I also love being close to my family. It has been fun being with my sister Crystal. I love having somebody to hang out with all day everyday. The girls love the ranch and playing with their cousins. Mariah is so funny she loves Bob (my parents dog), and Keno one of the many horses my parents have. Kiana loves to see the animals and has warmed up a lot to Bob and Keno but doesn't want anything to do with the other animals unless she is safe in the house. Mariah would be outside with the animals all day everyday if we let her. Brandon is surviving, he is actually doing a lot better than I thought he would. He is staying busy so he doesn't have much time to be bored :), plus he works in town so he gets to go to the store everyday if he wants to. I am going to post a few pictures of the ranch and some fun things we have done.

Mariah on her first horse ride......she loved it:)

Kiana did a lot better on this ride than any of her other rides but she still wanted off really early

Me with my nephew KaeJay.....KaeJay and Mariah got upset when they had to get off

My cute daddy branding the poor calf

My cute cowboy husband

It took one on each leg to hold this calf down

The kids were playing in the front yard and Hewey (the horse) decided to come say hi.

Kiana got to go on a field trip with my old elementary school
I had to get a picture of her on her first bus trip.....she is so grown up.

Our crazy life

Life has been crazy lately, a lot has happened sense I posted last. I had a Birthday, I am now 25!
My friends took me out to dinner.
Brandon surprised me by taking me to Chef's Table and then we got couple massages after.
Then my Parents surprised me with cake and balloons. It was a great birthday.
Brandon's parents came into town for his graduation. It was good to see them we had a lot of fun together.
This is us at the aquarium
Here we are showing Brandon's parents BYU's beautiful campus.

Brandon graduated with his Masters. I am so proud of him. He worked so hard for this. He truly is amazing!

Our little happy Family!
After Brandon graduated we moved out to my parents ranch. It has been fun being with family and very peaceful living in the country. My next post will be about living on the ranch.

Good News!

This post if for anybody who read my earlier post about my sicknesses. So I went back for my checkup cat scan to see how the mass on my left lung was doing. The good news was it's smaller, not gone, but smaller. So that means it's not cancer!! Tumors apparently don't just get smaller they stay the same or grow. Bad news is I still have pneumonia a month later and it has now spread to my right lung. But I still consider this great news! It doesn't really affect me much unless I am working out and I am on a basketball team right now but other than that not much to complain about.

Nina's Wedding

Okay this post will be a little more fun to look at then my last couple of posts. My little sister Nina got married and she was a beautiful bride. Nina is the youngest sister and the last sister to get married. It was so great when she got endowed. All my sisters were there together in the Celestial room, it was so nice to all be there together. I love my little sister Nina and I am so proud of her. She chose a great guy to marry and I wish them the best!
