The first part of July Rhett was privileged to go to Alaska fishing!  I really didn't want to stay home alone for a week so he took me and the girls to my Mom and Dad's.  We had fun, but I did feel bad for them because Darbee was very colic and was crying alot.

Party with the Atkinsons

 On the 4th we were in Evanston and they have this fun celebration in Hamblin Park.  When we were ready to go, but Darbee and Rhett were ready for a nap, so Grandma got a hold of Jeff and his family and she took her over there to be with them.  These are the pictures Aunt Jen sent to me.  Evidently Tanessa is a very good rock climber!

 While climbing the rock they guy below would help them and he told Tanessa to put her foot on the white rock.  Well as you can see in this picture she put her foot on the white rock that was at her eye level.  Jeff and Jen said she then proceeded to pull herself up and made it to the top.  They were both impressed.

Thank you Uncle Jeff, Aunt Jen, Tim, Landon, Seth, and Sydney.

July 4th

I try to be patriotic on the 4th.  This is as good as it gets for me and my girls.

On July 3rd we loaded all of us, including Ranger, into the truck and headed to Wyoming.  This is how the girls traveled.  Nessa snuggling with Cowbear and Ranger.  Darbee sleeping.

While driving through Heber City we came across this.  A tractor with the baylor attached going through the drive up.  All I can say is WOW!

Darbee wears a bucket hat when we go outside and Nessa wanted one.  I was trying to find some shorts that fit and found this bucket hat in my closet.  Win win for us, she loves it and she looks awesome in this "blossom" hat.

Every night after family scriptures and prayer one of us reads Tanessa 2 stories and then she says her prayers.  We then tuck her into bed and turn on her night light and her Christmas Music (yes she listens to it all year round no matter how hard Mom tries).  Before I go to bed I go and shut her night light and music off and give her an extra kiss.  One night I found this!
