Then today we..

Went to Sundance to ride horses. It was so much fun! It was Maxwell's first time on a horse he loved it but I think the 2 hour ride was a little long for his little legs! I'm not much of an "Outside" kind of gal but the views of bridal veil falls were amazing! I think I want a pony! Such a busy week! I also worked over 40 hours! I'm trying to do more outside of my "box" so I think this week was a good start with all this other stuff going on there was very little time for reality tv and online shopping!

And then..

We went to Monica's restaurant "The Park Cafe" which is located in case for some reason you haven't been there right across the street from Liberty Park where they were doing fireworks for the 24th of July. There was lots of good food (of course) and Monica's family was so great to host us!

We also...

Went to a bee's game to watch fireworks with our friends. It was actually really fun! My cute friend Monica got us all tickets (there were 23 of us total)

This week we..

One year ago today...

I can't believe it's been a year since we were married! I just want to say how thankful I am for my sweet husband and wonderful son! It was such a beautiful day! I look back and I just loved my day! I also love being married it's such a great feeling to have a partner in all things. I always knew that Henry was the one for me and our wedding day was the happiest day of my life!

it's the little things

I wasn't going to post this but every time I thought about it tonight it has made me laugh and I don't have a very good memory so I thought I should get it down before I forget. We went to a chain restaurant for dinner and as we were walking out a pretty good song came on and Max started shaking his little butt- he was dancing his way out of the restaurant! So of course Henry joined in and then to everyone's surprise so did I- we were laughing and danced our way to the car!
I should say that we were the last ones in the place but it was just such a silly family moment that I never want to forget! Things have been kind of tough lately and really busy so it was nice to have a moment of pure joy with my boys!

Bee's Game...

We also went to a Ruth's diner and a Bee's game with Katie and Stevan. It was so great to spend the day with some of my favorite people. It was even worth the weird sunburn that I got! Thanks Katie and Stevan!

Great Grandma turns 100

Busy weekend- my Great Grandmother turned 100 years old! She's even still got her sense of humor! She was joking around with Henry-it was really cute! Henry also snapped a pic of me and my beautiful Granny!

Red butte gardens

Today we went to Red Butte gardens with Brighton and her very sweet baby boy Asher. It was actually really fun- there we wild baby bunnies everywhere!! When Henry suggested it I kind of rolled my eyes but we had such a nice time we even bought a membership. In my head we are going to have countless picnics there this summer but we will probably be too lazy. These pictures also prove that 1.) boyfriend jeans are NOT flattering unless you are Blake Lively and 2.) flats make you appear 4 ft tall and 300 lbs drawing me to the conclusion that things that are comfy are never cute :( its a harsh truth

I can't believe it's been a year!!!

It's been a year since my bachlorette party! I don't have a lot of photo's but here are a few- we had so much fun! I'm really lucky to have friends that went all out for it! Looking back I just really appreciate all of the planning that went into that weekend!

Lindsey and Kevin's wedding

We have been so lucky lately, so many wonderful things are happening to our friends and family and we are so happy we have been able to be a part of our friends weddings, showers, and birthdays! It has been such an exciting time! Lindsey and Kevin are a great couple and had their wedding this past Saturday before Kevin starts his journey in the Air Force on Tuesday! The bride looked lovely and we had a great time!

Amber/Max/Mommy fun day

My pics didn't post for whatever reason... so here they are

Amber/Max/Mommy fun day

I've been so bad at posting but I did want to post my day last week with my mommy and Max. The 3 of us don't get together as much as I would like but we did have such a great day. I was even able to convince Max to spend the weekend at home with me (he usually prefers to spend it with his Grandparents!) We had lunch at the beehive tea room which is so charming, went shopping, and then to the cupcake bakery. I feel really lucky to have the relationship I do with my Mom and also for the one I have with Max. Not at all traditional but very honest in both cases. Salt Lake is such a great city- I love those days when you get to just wander around to see what it has to offer.

Katie and Stevan's wedding

Last night my little Katie got married! We had so much fun! Katie looked amazing (that dress!!!) It was also so great to meet Stevan's friends and family- they were wonderful! Katie and Stevan are just one of those couples that are just so right for each other! It was a really small wedding and I'm so glad we got to be a part of their day!
