Brooke and Todd's Wedding Festivities

My Littlest Sister Brooke and her man Todd got married on July 6, 2013 in the Manti Temple. The week before the wedding we were able to participate in some fun wedding activities including; a bridal shower, her endowments, the wedding dinner, and the wedding. It was so fun to see her get her endowments out in the Timp. Temple. I love going to the temple as a  big family. Her bridal shower was so much fun (and decorated so awesomely by me ;). Her wedding was beautiful and she looked like a model in a bridal magazine! Her sealing was wonderful and it brings me back to my own wedding and what a great day it was for me! It was so fun to see Brooke take on this new role as a wife and to welcome Todd to the family! Congrats Todd and Brook Leemaster! xoxo Lindz

Stadium of Fire 2013

Abby and I went to Stadium of Fire at the BYU stadium in Prove, UT on the 4th of July. We were able to see skydivers, dance performer, Carly Rae Jepsen, and Kelly Clarkson! Abby had fun watching the dancer preform but got annoyed when the artists did not play the song she wanted to hear first! Abby fell asleep waiting for Kelly Clarkson to play her Stronger song and we had to wake her up! The fireworks were amazing. I ended up carrying Abby back to the car since she fell asleep as soon as I picked her up in the stadium. ( it was like 2 miles to our car!) It was so much fun sharing this experience with Abby. Loved the concerts as well. xoxo Lindz

Splash park in Alpine

We got stuck in a big Utah heat wave while we were visiting so to beat the heat we headed over to the splash park in Alpine. The girls had fun cooling off  while having fun in the water. I was tempted to get in myself! xoxo Lindz

Hangin' with our Besties- Colette and Maelee

While we were in Utah we were able to meet up with our Besties the Jaussi family! We have not seen them since we moved from Idaho Falls over a year ago! Abby and I met Colette and Maelee at Trafalga for some glow in the dark mini golf and then went out to eat at Chili's. Maelee slept over that night and the girls made a fort out of the kitchen table to sleep in. The next day we met Colette, Curtis, and Makia at the Despicable Me 2 Movie at Thanksgiving Point. While we were there we also ran into the Reese family from our old ward in Idaho Falls! So Much fun! I LOVE THIS FAMILY! xoxo Lindz

Cooling Off in the Water

The girls had so much fun while we were in Utah playing in the water. Madison's favorite thing was to squirt everyone with the super soaker.( Even if you did not have a swimming suit on!) The back yard had a little bit of shade in the afternoon which was perfect for some lounging in our swimming suits. Jordyn loved to play in the pool in her suit. So much fun! xoxo Lindz

P.S. Sorry Court for all the swimming suit Pictures ;)

Hogle Zoo

While we were in Utah we went to Hogle Zoo with Grandma Rose, Auntie Court, and Cousins James and Clay. They had the Lego display going on where they made some fun life size animal out of Lego's. The kids favorite place was the new polar Bear exhibit. The polar bear was having fun playing with the kids on the other side of the glass. Jordyn had fun hanging out in the stroller eating snacks. The zoo was cool that day so we were not as hot as we usually are when we go in the summer. The kids also had fun on the carousel but the train was being worked on so we missed out on that this time around.I am excited to go next year to see the new exhibit that is currently under construction. xoxo Lindz
