FALL 2015

I'm finally updating my blog (being a mom is BUSY! I wish I had more time to do it more often) but here is what our little family has been up to this fall!

To start, Becky - Tyler's sister - got married! We went up to Calgary and it was such a perfect day. For real though.. was she not the most beautiful bride EVER?

It's not a trip to Canada without a trip to Superstore! I love visiting Canada and going to my favorite places. Superstore is kind of like the State's version of Target and it's the bomb.

I stole these pictures off of Facebook because it's faster so sorry they are a bit blurry! It was such a wonderful day and we are so happy for her and Scott! They are perfect for each other and we love (and miss - they live in the Bay area now) them everyday!!


Fall is in full swing at our house! It had been so warm in Utah up until the past few days and I am so happy it's getting colder so I can finally put on sweaters, boots, and drink hot cocoa for days! We went to a cute little pumpkin patch and when I saw these pastel pumpkins I KNEW we had to get them. So cute!

Tyler has gotten 4 interviews so far for medical school! GAH! We cannot believe how crazy it is that this is all actually happening. It's scary and exciting but we also know that the Lord has a plan for our family.  It's a little unsettling to have no idea what our future will turn out like and where we will even be living next fall but we know that it will all work out! We went to the temple last week and it sure helped us to have faith that things will fall into place just as they are supposed to.

And here are some random pictures from the past couple months!

So sad peach season is over.

Fishing with my crew! Tyler's random obsession with fishing is still going strong. We are all surprised it's lasted this long but we have fun going!

My cute little sister went to her first dance! WHAT! How pretty does she look though!

Love my little best friend.

Watching auntie Isabelle at her tennis matches!


Tyler's grandparents on his mom's side own a beautiful property in British Columbia. Lots of his cousins spend their summers there - but there's also one week in the summer where the whole family comes to visit. I was so excited to go to my very first "family week"!
This place is what makes up Tyler's childhood and I've heard story after story of his summers here. I was excited to finally get to go! We haven't been able to the previous two summers because of sticky green card crossing the border stuff. Blah! But… finally!!

THIS PLACE WAS MAGICAL. I can't even describe how stunningly beautiful it was. Pictures do not do justice! There were so many fun toys to keep us having fun - kayaks, paddle boards, canoes, giant swings into the water - it was truly the greatest. 

Tyler's mom was constantly offering to watch Elle so we could go off and spend time together. We made the BEST memories there - one of my favorites was canoeing around the lake together each night. It was so romantic watching the sunset with my sweetheart surrounded by the most beautiful scenery!

It was so cute to watch all of Tyler's little cousins play with Elle. She was on cloud nine with all the attention and love!

Unfortunately, this trip happened right about the time when all of Tyler's secondary medical school applications started coming in... so each day we drove down to this adorable coffee shop + cafe (really the only thing in the tiny town besides a gas station) to use their wifi. 
I expected this teeny tiny town's cafe to not be that good… but the food was literally INCREDIBLE. I'm still craving their cheesecake. Each day I looked forward to our mini dates here haha!

Tyler's mom is the only sister and she has 6 brothers. All of his uncles are INSANE talented with any type of sport/athletics. I was blown away watching them air chairing, wake boarding, waterskiing, etc. I was a baby and stuck with tubing :)

It was sad to leave, but just made me that much more excited for next summer!
