Oh Joy

I am so excited.
Kevin, Sophia and I are finally moving into our own place!!!
We have been living with Kevin's parents for the last two years so we could get started with school, find good jobs, etc.
It has been fun, but it is really REALLY time for us to move on.
We found a cute apartment in Ogden that is close to Weber State. My old Young Women's leader will be our landlord, and while we may not be bff's with the neighbors, they aren't crackheads.
I wish I had a picture of the place that I could post, but once we move in I will have to put something up.

Three Day Weekend!

Kevin and I had a 3 day weekend for the 24th of July, so we tried to take full advantage of our last hurrah before we have to go back to school.
We stayed with Brian and Julie, Kevin's brother and sister-in-law), in Toquerville. For those of you who don't know, Toquerville is a quaint little town 30 minutes away from Zion's National Park.
The weekend was great, we experienced some inclement weather during one of our hikes, but it added to the fun. I didn't get any pictures from the park because the camera would not have survived the rain.


I have done it again. Waited too long between posts. We have had a VERY busy Summer. It has been really nice to spend so much time with each other, and take a break from life. I feel very lucky because there are a lot of people who don't get to spend as much time with their loved ones.
Sophia has changed so much in the past few months. She is tan and blonde, so she looks like a beautiful summer baby. Her language and vocabulary are out of control. She is fully potty trained, has 6 books memorized, and has a better memory than most adults. I take full credit for her amazingness.
We have been to Lagoon twice, Zion's National Park, the Symphony, fireworks, the farmers market, and we go swimming pretty much every day.
This really is my favorite time of year, and I am sad that it will be coming to an end.

Celebrating New Life

I found a children's book at the Library that was about the origins of Easter. It was so nice and refreshing to see something about a Holiday that didn't focus on religion or presents.
I didn't realize that the tradition of coloring eggs comes from the celebration of life, women, and their eggs. Kevin and I aren't religious, and we want Sophia to be openminded, so I really loved that this book was celebrating all forms of life from many perspectives.

Sophia and I colored eggs together for Easter. She was very good at it! She would gently place the eggs in the cup, and we didn't even make a mess. It was amazing.
This has been one our funnest holidays together. She is old enough that she gets excited and can participate. Today we hid some eggs in the yard for her to find, and then she found her toys that the Easter Bunny brought her. I will post some pictures of that tomorrow.
We were going to have brunch with my family, but Grandma Melanie is sick :( , so we will be doing dinner with The Fendricks. Hope you all enjoy the Easter Holiday with your loved ones.

Here are a few recent photos. Please note that I am not wearing makeup in some of them, and had rolled out of bed recently.
Kevin's parents joined "Bountiful Baskets", which supplies them with fruit, veggies, bread, tortillas, and sometimes easter cookies with frosting. We had fun decorating them, and Sophia and Kevin had fun eating them.
Sophia loves to paint. She has four paintings in her bedroom that she has named "forty eight" and "sophia lynn fendrick"... She wanted to paint a few days ago, but we were out of canvases, so she decided to paint her feet and moved upward. It was really funny to see her explore her body with a paintbrush.

Discovery Gateway...

Today was great.
We met up with Cody, Audrey, and Wyatt in Salt Lake, and took the kiddos to Discovery Gateway, which is amazing! I wish we lived closer, because I would take Sophia there all the time. The membership cost is a little too pricey for me because I don't make it to Salt Lake very often.
Sophia and Wyatt had a great time, and were pretty exhausted by the time we left. We dined at "Z Tejas", meh... then topped it all of with a stop at the "Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory". Here are a ton of pictures for your viewing pleasure.
