This past weekend was so much fun. We decided to take a trip to Yellowstone! On the way, we go to see Aaron's old home and elementary school. We also got to visit with some of our friends from Aaron's school in Texas and two of Aaron's siblings and their families
Here's some of the pictures from our trip.

Our 9th Anniversary!

This past Wednesday, Aaron and I celebrated our 9th anniversary! 9 years seems like such a long time, but I swear it's flown by. To celebrate, Aaron and I went camping alone up at Silver Lake in American Fork canyon. Thanks so much Mom, Dad,Kent, and LouJean for watching our kids. Aaron and I had a great time!
Here's a picture from our wedding day 9 years ago. Aren't we little?

Here's a picture of Aaron and I after we hiked the ridge above Silver Lake. I had to hold Aaron up for the picture! (JK Aaron)
Isn't Silver Lake beautiful?

Aaron on top of the world!

The Living Planet Aquarium

Yesterday we decided to take a trip to The Living Planet Aquarium. The aquarium is located in Sandy, just East of the South Towne Mall. There were a lot of fun things to see (ie. fish, frogs, sea horses, sting rays, snakes, an octopus, etc). Here are some pics.

The Hill Celebration at USDC

Last Thursday was the "Hill Celebration" at Utah State Developmental Center (My work). I haven't talked about USDC very much and I feel that I should since the residents are like my family away from home. The Hill Celebration is sort of like American Fork's Steel Days or Pleasant Grove's Strawberry Days. All of the residents, employees, and families attend the event. The day begins with a parade. The parade has policemen, marching bands, mascots, etc. (You name it, they've had it). Each building at USDC has a float in the parade that the residents help decorate. After the parade, there are several fun events. Employees and residents get a free lunch, there's a cake decorating contest, live music, a bean bag toss, a fishing pond, etc. There are also several booths with cotton candy, snow cones, popcorn, icecream, tatoos, etc. This year was the first time I've attended. I had such a great time and I know all of the residents did too.
Here's a great article that talks about USDC,1249,595064943,00.html

Trip to the Dentist

Yesterday, Andrew, Aaron and I went to see my brother-in-law (Dave) who is a dentist. Aaron went in for an exam/cleaning, and Andrew and I went to have some cavities filled. I felt pretty confident that Aaron was going to have more cavities than me, since he can easily drink a 2 liter of Mtn. Dew or Dr. Pepper every day. Well, this wasn't the case. Aaron didn't have one cavity! In fact, Dave said Aaron has amazing teeth with no tarter whatsoever. I lost that bet. Good job Aaron.

Happy Birthday Breelyn!

Today is our baby's birthday. We can't believe she's already one. We just wanted to let her know that we love her and we're thankful she's a part of our family. Happy Birthday Bree!
