Britni's Visit

My niece Britni has been staying with us for the last couple of days which has been so much fun. She is here in Utah working for Herbs for Health and spending some summer days with Jerid and I. Millie loves her and gets so excited to see her when she walks through the door each night.

Over the weekend we went on an awesome and eventful hike up American Fork Canyon. It was beautiful up there with millions of beautiful wild flowers that seemed to flow endlessly over the hillsides. We stopped at the park recreation center to ask for advice on a good hike, and the woman told us about Silver Lake. She said it was the most beautiful hike in the canyon but unfortunately, for the sake of Millie, I forgot to ask how long and hard the hike was! Our little Millie got about half way and her legs started giving out. As you can see in the pictures, I started carrying her up the mountain until both Jerid and Britni talked me into turning around. She got me a bit dirty! Poor Millie was so tired and hot! But all and all, we had a great time and a great view.

So, I'm new to this blogging thing, but I can't seem to miss out on all the great photo sharing and story telling that seems to happen in this little community.

Jerid and I have been married a whole whopping 7 months now. Things are GREAT! We are busy as can be with our jobs and Jerids schooling. 10 months and counting for us to be done and moving on to our next adventure. I can't wait until his graduation day. I think we'll have everything packed and ready to leave the minute he walks out of the ceremony. We're crossing our fingers that we'll be in California or Boise.... I want to go home!

We welcomed a new member to our family three weeks ago. Her name is Millie and she is our favorite thing to run home to... and wake up to every morning. She has a fire in her that I didn't know could exsist in such a tiny thing.... she's crazy! But, we love her anyway.
