Fallen Off...

So, I'm still on the face of the earth, just a bit busy lately.

This week we had our Davis Family Reunion, Davis Wedding, and Javier arrival.

Our family gathered at the Daines family cabins this week, and it was so amazing to be together. I can't believe how big all my nieces and nephews are. There were a few that I hadn't met yet, and it was so fun to get to know them.

Secondly, Matt and Kami are married! Their wedding was super cute...simple and genuine. I am so grateful for the opportunity they have to start again together.

Lastly, my sister Candy is back! We are so happy to have the Javier's around again. Suddenly, I have Cooper/Trooper, and Annie/Abby. It's tricky.

Sadly, I was so busy/exhausted our reunion that I don't think I took a single picture. I made myself feel better by justifying that Randi was going to take pictures for us. (I did that when Abby was born too.)

We're back!

Car d'Alene...this year the Clyde's came...they were awesome. that you?

Last Saturday we attended a baptism over in the Hayden Stake. When we moved here 10 years ago my mom was assigned a woman to visiting teach. Their family had many struggles, and finally after 10 years the father and their two children were baptized. It was so fun, Dad baptized the father and Mom spoke. A true testimony builder about visiting teaching.

(Yes Abby is in jammies..she BLEW out about 10 minutes before the baptism...and her jammies were the only outfit in our emergency car kit..)

Kaci had a birthday last week, so we celebrated on Sunday. Happy Birthday Kaci! This picture totally exemplifies Cooper right now...IN EVERYTHING!

This was taken a few weeks ago, but I wanted to post it. Here Abby is with her newest cousin Lydia. You can just tell they are going to be rebel-rousers...

Our little Babs. She's getting so big, we can't believe how fast the time is flying.

You're Such A Trooper...

We made the transition with Trooper to bring him in the house full time a few weeks ago. We've been having a lot of fun with him lately, and I thought perhaps you would like a taste as well.

Meal time. Why do I buy dog food?

Each morning we go on a walk as family around the golf course. Trooper loves it. We love taking his leash off in the back, and he just runs and runs. It's so fun.

And subsequently, he is very tired after. (As was Kaden apparently)

Love you Troop!

Love 30 Rock?

Then you will love this...

Attention! (Steven)

Take a look at my sunglasses. I think I have had these glasses the longest of any pair, ever.

They are now lost. They were last spotted in Steven's office...

Please come home!

Mom showed this video the other day, and I was so inspired.

How blessed we are to have agency and choices for our lives.

Thank You Randi!

Just a quick thanks to Randi for our cute stroller. Cooper totally loved it.
(I realize in the pictures it looks like he's popping out the front, but he seemed pretty comfortable)

My favorite thing is little babies in onesies...Happy Summer!
