Livia had a dance recital last week where she got to show us what she has been working on all summer. It was precious! She always amazes me- she is so shy and timid and always FREAKS out before a recital or primary program and then the minute she gets on stage she just shines. We were so very proud of her and her skills!

a very HOT surprise from Chad......

Last weekend Chad surprised us by taking our little family to a resort in the Valley. I was so excited to get out of my house and Flagstaff that I did not stop to think just how hot the valley is this time of year {no wonder the rates were so good on our suite!} We actually had a lot of fun in the sun thanks to pools and water slides and a lazy river. Poor little Brigg and I ended up in the Hotel room while Chad and the kids played. I was just thrilled to have different walls to look at! Here are a couple of Pictures from our stay. The kids were able to watch Shark Tails while floating in the pool Friday night. It was called a Swim In Movie Theatre- too fun!

In the quiet moments........

Another pic by Di

This little guy has turned my world upside down...........and I just love it. It is like Christmas morning every day. I wake up and remember this little present I have been given and I just smile. I can NOT stop kissing on him. He is getting chubbier by the day and he cuddles more than any baby I have had. I am still learning how to be a functional mom of three and counting the days for school to start. Livia and Tate are so good at helping with this baby. I fear that Brigg is going to be quite spoiled by his siblings. I was rocking Brigg in my arms last night and I was completely exhausted and wondering how I was ever going to finally feel rested and then I remembered how long I had been wishing for this opportunity. It put the wind back into my sails and I woke this morning ready to serve my little family. Babies just make me a better person- less selfish...........
