So, yeah, I am kinda ticked cause we have a lot going on and I haven't been able to document! Our camera is now officially broken! So for awhile, no pics of baby bumps, home remodel updates, new purchases, Halloween decor pics, etc. I will let you know when we get a new one!

This is our first ultrasound!!!! Doesn't it look like Casper the ghost!? The baby turned right towards the camera so we didn't get a profile pic, but the little one did do a "wiggle" dance for us! It was so cute and amazing!
Jake boogie boarding (my favorite thing to do in the ocean)
Jake and my brother Dustin taking a break from the intense storm waves!
Beach patrol was hard at work the whole time we were there. We even watched them "rescue" a lady(there were a bout 6 beach patrol cars, 2 police cars, a fire truck and an ambulance)but it was really sad because we heard later on the news that she ended up dying. It was really weird too, because she was middle aged, and the water was really shallow, there wasn't a strong under tow and she was swimming right next to her husband. Still, a very sad ordeal.
The sad beach patrol experience didn't keep us out of the water. Despite the wind, grey sky, scattered showers, and watching a lady pretty much drown...we all had fun in the water and playing on the beach!
Our resort! Right on Daytona Beach!
Our balcony over looking the ocean
One of the 3 pools! Don't worry we only swam in them one day, cause they were only open the very last day we were there due to the storm! The last day was sunny and beautiful! We all (even my dad!) played in the ocean & ate dinner at a nice seafood restaurant out on their patio right by our resort! That night while we ate, there was a jazz band playing at an amphitheatre (that we could see from our table) and the pier in the above pic shot off fireworks!
Jake and Derek skipping rocks
Relaxing by the fire...man that sounds like a GREAT plan right now!
All the boys chillin' in the water (Jake, Todd, Derek, Shay)
Don't you love our "diapers" we used to float around!
We all had such a great time! The weather was perfect and the water was glass all day, so we had amazing wakeboard runs! I can't believe fall is coming and school is back in! Oh, well...we'll survive-FOOTBALL season starts!

My cousin Jonathan had his missionary farewell and his sister Nikki had her baby shower so we made it a weekend family reunion! It was such a blast!
Kim, Grandma, McKenna, Nikki, Me
Jake, Me, Casey, Nikki, Aaron, Kim, McKenna, outside on the ferry boat
Hanging out on the ferry!
Playing on the beach finding miniature crabs like this little guy under the rocks!
On our last day we of course had to go to Pike Place Market that overlooks the ocean! Always a must when you go to Seattle!
Nikki, Me, Grandma
Look at that HUGE fish! This vendor at the market is where you go to see fish "fly" through the air!
We have a tradition when we go to Seattle, we always go to Mee Sum Pastry and get a hombow! If you have never had one they are a must! It's a homemade big roll stuffed with meat! BBQ pork is the best!I have to say...this is a good lookin' group!! It's not a professional picture by any means, but we thought it would be nice to take an up to date family picture while we were in Seattle. This is my aunt and uncle's backyard, it's a forest!!
Next up (the weekend after Seattle), Jackson Hole, Wyoming for my dad's side of the family! It is definitely harder to get everyone together with our busy schedules but I think everyone who made it had a blast. We golfed, rafted, played volleyball, horseshoes, Frisbee, went to a play (The Ballad of Kat Ballou) in an old playhouse, relaxed in the hot tub, and just enjoyed each other's company! The legendary antler arch in downtown Jackson Hole!
Getting ready for our white water rafting trip!
Headed to the river!Just cooling off on the river! Our boat crew included; my dad, my mom, Dustin, Jaret, Shalee, Ryan, Jake and me. It was so much fun & our guide told us we were pros! Believe it or not no one fell out!
Finally, came Park City, Utah the weekend after Jackson Hole, with the Root family! We were there for Independence Day! How blessed we are to live in such a beautiful free country! We stayed in Park City but we spent most of the time in a small nearby town called Oakley. We blended in with the townsfolk! There was a parade (one of the best I've seen), a tribute to our country and those who fight for our freedom put on by the local choir and high school band, a luncheon at the town hall, and a rodeo with a fireworks show! It was such a great weekend!
P.S. I have to say THANK YOU again to my wonderful cousin Shalee! On our way to Park City Jake and I stopped in Ogden and she did some laser hair removal (no more shaving armpits & bikini line) and did a laser treatment on my face! I love it!
Jake & Aleah having fun in the car on the way to the parade!
So cute! Now that is family love! Lars and Aleah (nephew & niece)
Fun at the parade
Aleah (our future rodeo queen) & me
GOD BLESS AMERICA!
Jake and I did the alpine slide! It was really fun but the line to wait was so long! Can you tell, we were ready to make our own slide!
