Is this not the most hardcore baby you have ever seen?
And this one is for their mom: They're holding hands running through the sprinklers.
Happy anniversary blog world! One year ago from today I started blogging. Now, 122 posts later and 2 other blogs I contribute to...I still love it. Expect much much much much MUCH more. I've got some fun ideas for the future, but the main theme will always continue...which might just be that there is no theme.
Oh, I almost forgot,
This is for you too, Ella and Preston:

After a while she softened up, and let me see what she was hiding. 9! baby chicks! Congrats Papa Rooster and Mama Hen!
I love spring!

Before we heading over, we stopped for dinner at the closest restaurant. All the girls in the family LOVE Hilary Weeks. She is probably my favorite LDS singer and song writer. SHE WAS THERE! We were debating on how to approach her, when Mindy just goes for it. She saw her table was taking pictures and offered to take one for them. Then asked if we could get one, too. At the table were the other speakers Emily Watts, Kris Belcher, and Kim Nelson (who took the photo). They were HILARIOUS and were wonderful speakers, so it was fun to have a picture with them, too.
Her gift brought everyone to tears.
I can't say enough about TOFW. It was fun and spiritual. The people involved in putting it together are definitely inspired.

Today has been beautiful! I took my one year old nephew on a walk, and whenever he saw horses he would babble as loud as he could to them. He made me laugh every time.
During our walk up the driveway came the PA Goldies! Within the hour of them being in town this is what happened:
Nick and Preston got locked in the bathroom! Dad was fixing the doorknob and in between the boys went in and shut the door. It didn't take too long to get them out, but they were pretty entertaining while in there.
Later I took the two boys and Ella out to play and to cloud watch. We laid down a blanket and stared in the sky. I would say "Look! Do you see the caterpillar?" and the boys would say "YEAH! There it is! Mallory! Do you see the sky?! It looks like the sky!!!" They were much more creative playing in the yard, than with cloud watching. I love these kids.
Welp, I'm off with the ladies to Cincinnati this weekend. I'll tell ya all about it when I get home!

This is my life this summer...and I like it. I've been so busy the last couple years, that these next few weeks are going to be well appreciated. My only responsibility is finding a job. Fortunately, I got a degree in something I love. So, when I do find a job I'll be just as happy (if not more) as I am now.
I have to admit: I've been daydreaming a lot about putting up a yurt in the middle of nowhere, and living off the land. My only form of communication would be through blogging, and I'd tell all about my crazy adventures...

Maryland?! Am I supposed to be in Maryland?! Thinking I had to have gotten totally lost, I consulted the mini map. I had to squint to see it, but there was a faint gray state line. I'M OK! I never realized Maryland had a narrow strip reaching so far. Maryland is foggy.
My favorite thing about driving in other states is that you can go over 65! All the interstates are 70 in WV. I feel like a rebel when I drive out of state.
Riddle me this: Why aren't more people singing on the road? This has always perplexed me. What could they possibly be doing that is better than singing to the top of your lungs driving down the highway?
This weekend: Pennsylvania
