Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to all. Especially Eric, my Dad and Eric's Dad. We are blessed with really special Dad's and it was fun to celebrate them today. The kids and I got up and made Eric a special breakfast of blueberry pancakes. We got Eric a little keychain/digital viewer so he can have pictures of the kids while he is gone at school. I wanted a picture of the kids for the main picture when he turned it on. The boys were already eating, so these were the best I got.

Travis is looking so old.
Tanner's so cute!
We have been in Wenatchee for the last week and the kids are in heaven. They live outside here. They have a huge garden with fresh strawberries. Anyways, we are moving from Cheney to Spokane this week. Some of our friends from Pullman haven't been able to sell their house, so they are allowing us to rent from them for the next year, so housing has worked out really well for us. We are excited for Eric to be minutes from school and to be in Spokane.

This week we celebrated Aubree's anniversary of when she was sealed to our family. She was so cute when she would tell people why it was her anniversary and that she got to go to the temple with her Mom and Dad. Aubree is such a blessing in our life. She is such a special and mature girl. We are so thankful that Heavenly Father blessed us with each one of our miracles and with being a family forever.

Love this girl!

18 Months!

Love this little boy! Travis turned 18 months this week. He is now officially going to nursery. He doesn't love it yet, but he will stay there without crying too much. I have to have Eric take him. I have a hard time leaving him. It is so wierd not to have another kids to take care of at church. I am going to have to learn how to listen again.
Travis got into my mom's little planter garden and was sitting in the dirt. I didn't get the camera fast enough to get a picture before he climbed out. He loves being outside.

Trav loves swimming in the little pool and is growing up to fast. He vocabulary is growing everyday. He LOVES Aubs and Tanner and loves following them around the house while they play.
We have been going to the park everyday after naps and the kids love it. It is so nice to be able to get outside. It gets hard for me when they all want to get pushed in the swings. I just go down the line, pushing them each, over and over.
Tanner is such a sweet boy. He is so friendly and out going. When we go grocery shopping he says HI to everyone we see. He calls anyone that looks older "Grandma". It makes their day.

The annual Liberty Lake Garage sales were this weekend and my sister and I sold a bunch of out stuff. I sold our couch and kitchen table and got new ones. We bought some treats so Aubree and her cousins could do a little store to earn money. Aubs loved it and I wish I would've gotten a picture of her working her store. She made around $20 and bought her own slippers, new baby stroller, a doll, and some other random stuff. She was in heaven.

Yesterday, Eric and I celebrated our 6th Anniversary.

With high school graduations and planning receptions, we happened to get married on a Thursday. It was really cool to be the only couple married that day at the Spokane Temple. It was fun to be babied and to have all of the workers taking care of us. The day was perfect. It was so sunny and there wasn't a cloud in the sky. I remember being really emotional. I cried when I walked into the celestial room to meet Eric and then cried again when we walked into the Sealing room and then cried again when it was time to be married. There really isn't anything better than marrying the right person in the right place at the right time.

Eric planned a little excursion for us and it was really fun to be able to get away and focus on each other for a while. My parents gave us a Gift Certificate they had won to a nice hotel downtown Spokane. We drove to Pullman and got a bunch of WSU Track & Field stuff, then we went to the temple, and then went to Land of the Lost (don't watch it!). We really appreciated my mom and Mary watching the kids and for the gift certificate.

As we were driving to Pullman, a Brad Praisley song called Then came on, and it explained so much how I feel about Eric. I thought I loved Eric then, but it is so cool how much that love changes and grows. We have been given the opportunity to experience things that have helped us learn things and appreciate things in ways we wouldn't have otherwise. I am so grateful for how it has strengthened our friendship and our marriage. Eric is the best husband and the only person that could handle being married to me. He is a patient man. I am so thankful to be married to my best friend and to be able to raise a family with him. Eric is wonderful!

I found our wedding album and scanned a bunch of the pictures in. I need to get all them digitalized (is that how you say it?). It wierd to think we got married before digital cameras were used too much. It is fun to see how much our families have grown up.
