My goal:

"To laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children; to earn the approbation of honest citizens and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give of one's self; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived - this is to have succeeded."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Dancing Queen

I was listening to Christmas music last night when Scott got home. Ainsley was dancing in the living room. Scott comes in and dances with her. I come to dance too.... Ainsley pushes me back into the kitchen. I was not allowed to dance with them. I stay there for a few minutes and then try to dance with them again. This time she sits me on the couch and tells me to stay. How did I get cut out by my own child?

One Last Hurrah

Shelley put together one last summer hurrah! It had been 80 degrees all week... but that day it RaInEd! It had stopped by then but it was a bitter chill. We did a bonfire and hot dogs.
Ainsley kept running away! Finally we realized she was cold and wanted back in the car!

All snug headed home!

You are my sunshine!

This is not just a picture of the laundry basket...notice the pink shoes :)

Playing "hide and seek" in the lockers when we went to see Daddy.

Water Fun

Water babies! These are some of the kids whose dads are in the PT program with Scott
There is a tap in our back yard and Ainsley loves to play in it.
My dad on a giant water slide at a family reunion
Ainsley playing in the sand at the reunion... I think she liked that better then the slide
Scott and Ainsley getting ready to go down the slide

A bunch of my sisters and kids
We went to Jensen's Grove with some friends and family. It's as close to the beach as you get around here!
Again I think Ainsley's favorite part was the sand.
Friends at the "beach"

After we went to Jensen's Grove Scott went to his parents ward party at the same water slide! Here is Ainsley and Auntie Kim!

Scott finally got done with class for the summer so it feels like our summer is just starting! We are excited for a month with him!

Wild Thing... make my heart sing!
We went to the zoo with my mom and some of my sisters and the kids! It was a little crazy but fun. I was excited to show Ainsley the lions. She has a favorite stuffed toy and it is a lion. If you ask her what they say she will growl. So cute!

This monkey was so social. He just wanted to be right up there with us.
Scott was there too but h e took all the pictures!

Our good egg!

We also took the kids to the water park. Again they loved it, and I don't think anybody got too sunburned!

Ainsley loved all the kidos to play with!

Happy Independence Day!
We did a few fire works at Scott's parents. Ains loved the snaps. When we got home they were just going the city ones so we let her stay up and watch them with us. She kept tapping me and then pointing to the fire works. She didn't want me to miss them.

Napping with Grandpa
4th of July parade! She loves this little chair. It has been set up in our living room all week and that is her favorite place to sit.

More pictures

First day of nursery. She did better then I did!
Playing in the pool. Mainly she just likes to hold the hose. She wouldn't sit in the water. I don't blame her it was COLD!
Scott has to do 5 internships over the next 2 years. We get to pick where we go. We decided it would be best to go home! What a good excuse to get to go hang out with grandmas! That and I have a job and can't just leave for 6 week, and I didn't want to have to stay here by myself. So I commuted when I worked. Any way we got some really good time with both of our families and they were all really patient to let us invade for 6 weeks. It took that long for Ainsley to warm up to my brother! We sure had fun!!

My grandma found this little play kitchen in a rental house. My mom helped us bleach it and get it all clean up. Ainsley loves it!!! We just haven't decided where we are going to put it!
Just a picture of a cute girl eating a sucker for your viewing entertainment!
Same cute girl trying on make-up for the first time!
Cute girl again! Scott and his mom refinished the bench while we were there.
Cute girl again just hanging out at grandma's house.
I had my birthday while we were there so I got a big birthday party with all but 2 of my siblings. It was really good to get to spend so much time with everyone. Ainsley learned where the toy drawer is and where the candy is stashed.
We went to Scott cousins wedding. Here is Ainsley's photo shoot while we were waiting.

Matt helping her pose.

We can home Saturday. As Dr. Seuss says "The time has come" and it had. It was good to be home and visit every one but it is good to be back and settled in.
