Way Behind!

As I said before, my family was here for almost 2 weeks and we have been going nonstop! That is the reason that I have not posted any pictures in a while. We did so many fun things while my parents were here. We went to Yellowstone, the grand Tetons, Lagoon (amusement park), Thanksgiving point, Seven Peaks water park, 24th of July carnival in Spanish Fork, to the movies to see "Dark Knight", and lots of other fun places! I am so sad that they are gone. I didn't even get to see them off because I was at the American Idol auditions. Now I have to catch up on blessings 11 and 12! p.s. These pictures are bad because they are all from my phone! I will post the good ones when I get my camera.

Blessing 11...Nature!

When we went to Yellowstone, I could not believe how beautiful the scenery was! There were beautiful waterfalls and streams snaking all across the land. There were elk and bison everywhere! We even saw a Bald eagle up in its nest! I have never seen one in the wild and it was beautiful! I am so grateful that heavenly father made the earth so diverse and beautiful! I will definitely have to visit there again
soon. I think it would be amazing to see in the winter with snow covering the hills and mountains. Another thing that I thought was cool was Old Faithful. I mean, who figured out that it went off every hour? It felt like someone pushed a button to make the thing shoot out water. Isn't it amazing that the Earth just does it on its own? Nature is so cool!

Blessing 12...Family

Having my family here made me realize how much I miss them when they are far away! They do so much to help us out and they don't expect anything in return! They had so much fun being with Kennedy and I loved watching them with her. I wish that we lived closer to them so that we could play like this all the time! My sister could not come because she was in a play in Houston. My brother, Kyle, came and Kennedy LOVED him! It was sad to see them go. : (

On a final note, Kennedy is a pro at walking now...and throwing fits! AHHHH! I didn't think it would happen so soon. So, just for kicks, here is a picture of her throwing a fit because the stroller got stuck when she was trying to push it around the house.

Those pictures are beautiful - I can hardly believe you took them with your phone! I've always wanted to go to Yellowstone... *sigh* someday. :) I bet Kennedy is keeping you on your toes now thats she's walking! Next: CLIMBING! (and falling too)
