Hey what up every body!!!!
I cut Payton's hair. I took her in to be cut and they just took scissors to it in a straight chop. So I googled some videos of how to cute and a-line and did it myself.
We went to ALL the Beavers baseball world series regional and super regional games. It was a lot of fun!
Especially when we won!! Payton thought it was pretty loud, but awesome.
We even got a date night out of it one night.
Ben thought it would be fun to teach Payt how to golf... and then put a hole in my rear windshield....
Here is a random one of the odd stances Payton likes to take. I crack up all the time at them.
Here is Ben being an awesome dad. He has also painted a many a toes nails AND allowed Pay to paint his. The topper has to be holding out his hands for Payton to throw up into though... That is pretty awesome dad skills.
We got to attend the Brown Family Reunion this year!! So much fun! This is us crusin the the car. Payt is makin an awesome stink face...
It has been a crazy transition and a tough one to not be with Payton all day, but I do love my job and her day care is literally 7 miles down the road. She loves it and it is really good for her to socialize with other children.
My job is crazy! I work for a company called Sentry in their non-standard auto insurance. I am a claims adjuster. Sooooo when all those people who are reeeeaaallly hard to insure get into a car accident I am the person who has to figure it all out and pay. I have learned A LOT in the 2.5 months I have worked there and I love my co-workers. The day flies by and I get to pick up my little love and spend some great quality time.
Payton and Yai Yai came and took me out to lunch in my first week. That was a lot of fun!
For the fourth of July we reaalllly missed being at Grandma Cox's house. But being at Yai Yai and Pa Pa's was a great place to be! We got all decked out in our red white and blue and set off fireworks and ate great food.
The cake was lemon with a strawberry filling. I did a dozen cupcakes the same and a candied lemon on top and then some chocolate with butter cream frosting.
Wedding photos: (I think we are a pretty good looking bunch!!)
While my mom was out for the wedding and the new arrival of my brother's baby Lydia we had some fun time at the pool!!!
We have been having fun in Yai Yais backyard this summer!
We HAD to get to the beach a few more times before the summer ended. Payton's pure joy in her face while flying a kite is priceless.
I got the privileged to go out to dinner with these beautiful ladies... Christine is my co-worker (far right) her mother (middle), her friend (left) and my mother in law (below). There is a local produce store just a stones throw away from Kim and Rich's called EZ orchards. They grow amazing produce and sell it in their little store and import the most amazing olive oils, balsamic vinegar and much more. They do this dinner called Farm to Fork and they have a local chef come in and cook with all their produce and local products. It was delicious!!
Payton and I got to go camping with our ward for the mother daughter camp out. We made best friend bracelets.
And then we ended the summer with the State Fair! Payton loves the State Fair.
And we will finish the post out with our smiling faces again... Please forgive us! I can't promise it wont happen again...
