Dipnetting 2019! YES! It was amazing. Best year ever. We all arrived to the campsite at different times but with one goal in mind: FISH! Mom, Dad, and Emma got their Friday; Jenn and Josh arrived Saturday; and Ben, Sam, and I arrived Sunday evening. By the time we had got there, lots of fun […]

And this May did not disappoint! Friends. We got to spend lots of times with friends. Walks in the park. Time at their […]

I’m thankful for this April. For time with Sam and Ben and Ruby. For sunshine and mountains. For the Resurrection of my Savior. And our family and friends near and far that we got to spend time with. We started out April with a bang! A hike up Mt. Baldy on a just perfectly sunny day. Sam […]

But mostly, we just snuggled, loved each other, and made it through. Tough months call for lots of love and I’m thankful for our […]
