Happy Birthday Mom!

Today is my Mom's birthday! She is an amazing mother and friend. She really is the best mom in the world so don't even try to argue! Here's some things that make her, her!

My mom loves to do crazy things and laugh. She's always having fun with her family and friends. This is her and my sister having a competition to see who could keep their feet in ice water for the longest.

She loves to go on vacation, especially if it's with family! She's really excited to go to Holland in the spring with her sibblings and Dad.

My mom is the best Nana! Adam and Tyler adore her and the feeling is mutual. My mom is such a great mother, so it's nice to be able to ask her advice when raising my boys. She also loves my dad, her eternal sweetheart! They have a great marriage and are an example to Mario and I.

My mom loves anything to do with the water. Her favorite place on earth is being out on a boat in Lake Tapps. This is the Jet Boat ride along the Rogue River.

These are a few of my mom's favorite things....but she is one of MY favorite things! I don't know what I'd do without her! I love you so much mom....have a very Happy Birthday!!!!

The Trip Goes South...

After the wedding we headed down to Salt Lake to visit Mario's family there and bring my sister Laura to BYU Dance Camp. It was a great trip! I love Mario's family and it was fun to meet all the new babies and spouses. The main big reason for going was that it was Mario's cousin Allen's last weekend at home before leaving on his mission to Guatemala.

Mario and Allen (aka Elder Briones)

Mario's Tia Consuelo and Tio Alfredo have a trampoline in their yard, which Adam and Tyler were all over!

I got to meet Mario's cousin Adrianna, who is so nice, and her adorable baby Isabella.

It was fun spending the weekend with Laura...I love my littlest sis!

There was so much family visiting to see Allen was awesome!

Adrian and Laura!

July 31st I gained a brand new sister-in-law! Her name is Laura (not to be confused with my sister Laura) and her and Adrian are perfect for each other. They were married in the Twin Falls Temple and we were able to attend. It was beautiful and there sealer was Stephenie Meyers Grandpa, so that was neat.

Here's some pics!

My sister Jennie and I..

Mario's cousin Javier lives in Twin Falls, so we were able to visit him as well.

Tyler loves Uncle Adrian and Aunt Laura!

My mom looked so pretty....until my cousin Joshua pushed her into the pool at the hotel...IN HER DRESS! It was hilarious!

My boys!

Welcome to the family Laura!!!! Congrats you guys!

Get Ready for Picture Overload!

We have been so busy lately that I have severely neglected our Blog. And all the things we've been busy with deserve a post. I like to put up lots of pictures and just some writing so sorry!
