It has been forever since I have posted here. And here is a recap of our past two months.

June—Cordy and I both went to our first carnival! It was a lot of fun, she rode a few rides with daddy, while I took pictures. This child loves adventure, she would seriously go on roller coasters if she was allowed. She now makes multiple animal noises (duck, snake, monkey, dog, cat, bird, fish, donkey, chicken, cow...) She loves her animals. Aaron took her to petsmart yesterday and she about freaked out, wanting to touch all of them. We have to be so careful with her! Just the other day we were playing outside, and a lady was walking her dog—Cordy squealed, and ran as fast as she could towards it, saying whu whu whu (dog noise). She gives the cutest kisses now too, and is obsessed with putting her doll to bed, and telling her "nigh nigh." And she's a pro at blowing bubble now too, she calls them "buh buhs" She absolutely LOVES books. She would rather read than even play outside or watch tv. She points at everything, wanting me to tell her what it is....

My parents came up to Utah to go to the MTC for less than a week, before they headed out to Florida. We had so much fun with them, and it's been amazing how the spirit has entered out lives since then. They are experiencing so many incredible things, and it strengthens my testimony every day! We were sad to see them go, but we are excited for the opportunity they are having.

We also roadtriped with uncle Seth up to Turlock to visit Cordy's first King cousin, Baby Beckham. We stopped at the Salt flats and got some fun pictures. We were able to make it for Beckham's blessing. It was great seeing Grandma and Grandpa, and Nate and Mckae; we had a blast. We also said goodbye to some dear friends of ours who moved back to Idaho! There is so much transition happening to everyone but us right now!

July—Aaron got a scooter...he's been begging me forever for one. I finally broke down and told him if he could find a GOOD one at a certain price he could get it. I didn't think it would be possible, but less than 24 hours later he had one. He ended up bargaining the ksl owner down %60 of what she had listed it on KSl for! That crazy kid. I also photographed my first wedding, and attended an all day long photography class, which was so helpful! Things have been really picking up lately, and I couldn't be more excited. I also edited my home bishops book, which was amazing. And I am now editing my neighbors book. Hence why I haven't been blogging! But I couldn't be happier because I feel so blessed. Oh, and I also highlighted my hair!! Ahh, it is so light to me, but I think I'm liking it. And while I was getting that done, Aaron spoiled our little girl :) he got her a mini pink camleback (on sale too)! It's the cutest thing ever. She loves her dad's and is always sipping water out of it when she can get a chance, so he broke down and got her one too. He also bought her a dog bed...haha, she loved the (clean) one at Mckae's parents house, so he thought it would be a fun big pillow for her....oh boy, it will be a while until I leave them alone together again ;)

I just love my family!
