Digital Scrapbooking

The other day I was showing a friend of mine how to digital scrapbook. I had done a few pages here and there, but hadn't really gotten into it. A few days ago she showed me all of the pages she had done and I was amazed. It gave me a stronger desire to digi scrap. Just one more thing to take up my time. I do feel a little guilty scrapbooking when I should be cleaning the house or something. However, I think this is something that Logan will be able to have forever AND it takes way less time and money than regular scrapbooking. It is way fun and WAY addicting!!

First Day of School!!

Today was my niece Baylee's first day of school. My brother Tyler wasn't able to be there so I took some pictures and am posting them for him to be able see. She absolutely loved kindergarten. When I asked her if she made any new friends she told me that she didn't remember their names, but she was friends with almost all of the girls in her class. Here are some pictures I took of Baylee and her family while at their house today. Sorry I can't figure out how to turn the pictures the right way.

One day...

I am sure that one day I will do better at blogging. I am terrible at updating our blog (as I am sure everyone who checks it has noticed). I do really want to get into it. So, we will see. Anyway, I thought I would do a little update on what our family has been up to lately.

Logan is learning so much. It seems that every day he is trying to say a new word. He loves to make messes wherever he goes. However, he also seems to enjoy helping me clean up. Unloading and loading the dishwasher are some of his favorite household jobs. He also really likes to help me with the laundry. He 100% loves to be outside and would live out there if we would let him. My mom bought him a little wading pool and he LOVES it. He has become quite fascinated with the bathtub. If I can't find Logan the first place to look is in the tub. He often takes his toys in there and just sits and plays with them. Many times I have gone to get in the shower and found a tub full of this, that, or the other. Joe and I are totally intrigued by watching him. What a fun kid!

This is what I found in the tub one day.

We have been busy, busy, busy the past few weeks. We watched my sisters kids while they were in Florida, then had a family reunion with Joe's family in Cascade, the next week had a family reunion with my family, the next week Joe's sister got married, and the next week I started babysitting a few kids. It has been so much fun hanging out with all of the family. While watching my nieces and nephews we went to the zoo and Roaring Springs and played a lot with their cousins. Joe's reunion was in Cascade. Logan was a dirty mess the whole time and loved it. He was totally in his element playing in the dirt, rocks, and water all day. We of course forgot out camera, but I will post some pictures when I get them from his sisters. My reunion was in Island Park. We went to Yellowstone and Mesa Falls. It was so fun! I love my nieces and nephews and can't believe how grown up they are getting. That was my first time ever going to Yellowstone and I really really liked it. (I really don't know why this is blue and underlined). Anyway this is my nephews and nieces checking out the penguins at the zoo.
