6 years ago today...

(Sorry this picture is so cheesy. My actual wedding pictures were too big to download!)

I married my guardian angel. No seriously, I'm pretty sure that Ben saved me from a long road of heartache and bad decisions. Most of you reading this know our story. It's actually a pretty good one if I may say so! :) Anyway, I've known Ben for 10+ years and have had the privilege of being married to him for 6 of those. We've had a lot of fun together. He can truly make me laugh like no one else. Don't get me wrong, it hasn't always been easy or perfect, but we make it work. With him by my side, I can pretty much get through anything. He's the logical one in our relationship. He's also the quiet easy-going one. We pretty much balance each other out. We now have two beautiful kids and I can't wait to have a couple more! :) Babe, you truly complete me. I love you so much more than I did on that day 6 years ago. You're the glue that holds our little family together and I can't wait to spend eternity with you. Thanks for all you do for us and most importantly, thanks for loving me back because to me, that's all that matters!

*Our 4th*

Our fourth was pretty hilarious this year.

We ALL slept in. Not one of us wanted to get up for the morning festivities.

My sister Lauren was in town with her b.f. Palmer so that was fun. They went swimming during the day while I worked at Chili's.

That night we went and got some last minute fireworks because I'm such a procrastinator! We then went and got Cafe Rio for dinner and took it over to the Dixie College to eat while we watched the fireworks.

Well, Hiley started crying before they even started. Seriously crying... She was finally ok to be in the car. Then in front of where we were sitting was this tree that we thought wouldn't get in the way... wrong! The fireworks were NOT very high and so we could hardly see them. Anyway, it was pretty funny. That night at midnight, my sis and I with my neighbor Suzanne went and saw My Sister's Keeper. Um, pack some tissues if you venture out to see that one! :) Hope you all had a safe and fun holiday!

Playing catch...up!

So much to catch up on.... Well for starters we've had a really great summer! Kinda low key but that's how we like it! We went to Island Park about two weeks ago with Ben's family. As always, we had a really fun time! We rode four-wheelers, had camp fires, and rolled around in the dirt. :) We went to Big Springs and fed the fish, took a drive into West Yellowstone and had lunch and finally pulled Ben's new .22 out and broke it in a little bit! Benson loved going on "treasure hunts" with his grandpa to find Geo cash's ???? He also loved playing with his cousins Staley and Jack! As always, that's the best part... being able to spend some time with family that we don't get to see very often! Anyway, we had a great time. Thanks to Wade and Leslie who always put so much time, money and effort into making sure we have a good time! We love you guys!

P.S. We sure missed Spence and Heidi this year! Hope you had a great time in Hawaii :)
