We have been to three different waterfalls this summer and Brielle has absolutely loved each of them. She talks about waterfalls constantly. Look at how adorable she is! She is getting so big I can't believe it. This was obviously in May/June after she had surgery on her finger. It is still wrapped up in the splint.
I think this is such a cute picture by the Provo River.
Mike and Brielle at the base of Bridal Veil Falls.
Brielle and I in the same spot.
Beautiful Bridal Veil Falls.
I love this waterfall and every time we go past it to go to my parents, Brielle looks for it and it is so excited when she sees it!
This is Stewart Falls. It is quite a hike with a toddler and a baby but so fun and so beautiful.
It is so much bigger than I thought it was going to be.
We first went with one of Mike's coworkers and then took my sister and her family. We had an interesting trip up and back including a couple of people falling and Ariah falling into the river and a kid crying most of the way up and back, but it was still fun.
This is a waterfall that Mike hiked with Brielle and his uncle's family up Big Cottonwood Canyon. It is pretty steep at first and I didn't dare try to hike it with Brooklyn. Below is Bryce (Mike's cousin) and Brielle.
Here is the pretty waterfall. I love waterfalls.
Here are Brielle, Racheal (Mike's sister) and Sarah (Mike's cousin). See how happy Brielle is? Obviously she was carried most of the way up. When they got back down, Brielle said that was fun going to the waterfall. Let's do it again!
Mason (Mike's cousin) and Brielle. I love her pose in this one.
Uncle Paul with Brielle. He carried her most of the way. He is awesome.
We have thoroughly enjoyed this summer. I am sad it is coming to an end. We had a lot of fun going to see many different waterfalls.

Lindon Pool

My cousin Susie introduced me to this pool and I am in love with it. It is the Lindon Pool and it is perfect for kids. It is $5 for adults and free for my kids. Brielle loves it. It has this pirate part with ships and water slides perfect for kids, then a bigger waterslide, a little pool (1 foot deep), a normal pool, hot tub, a lazy river and a surfing pool. I love it all.
Rachael (Mike's sister) and Brielle. She was so good with Brielle and Brielle didn't wan tto leave her sight.
Brooklyn tried the pool for a while and then got cold, so she sat and warmed up and slept in her car seat.

Jaron's baby blessing - Catch up

As many of you know, my sister Shell, has kids just after me. I get pregnant and then they decide it is time to come down to Earth. I love it! So her son Jaron was born 5 weeks after Brooklyn. He was blessed in June and we got some great pictures. I sure love him already. He is such a chill baby and just good. He harldy cries and it is so easy to get him to laugh. What a joy! I hope that he and Brooklyn are good friends just like me and my cousins! I love them.
Look at him! I love this picture. Bad angle but I love his smile. What a hunky chunk of a boy!
I love Brooklyn's smile. It makes me melt. It is much easier to get Brooklyn to smile than it was to get Brielle to smile, but Brooklyn does cry more than Brielle did, so we win some and lose some. What cute cousins!

Jump On It - May 2010

I LOVE THIS PLACE. It is free for anyone 3 and under and Brielle loves it. There are trampolines and blow up things and since I don't participate in the jumping, we go for free. It is so fun and we have done it so many times in the last few months. Here are Brielle and Ariah going down the blow up slide.
My camera does not work so well with jumping so the pictures are blurry but I kind of caught her in the air. The best part is to jump with the balls of course!
I love Brielle's hair in this one.
This is what Brooklyn was doing while the girls were jumping. Look at those beautiful eyes!
I love the tongue sticking out in the pictures. Brielle used to do the same thing.
