Nesting Projects

Dane's side of the room is almost ready, he is still missing a mattress though! I have a couple more things I need to finish in order to boy up his side of the room! Less than two weeks till the inducement date, hallelujah.
Tay made this cute bed for Brynne from scratch, he did a great job! His mom called the other day and ask what he was doing, he said "I'm nesting for Dione" because of all the projects I keep giving him. Eventually I want to make some sort of canopy for the toddler bed. Brynne has been in her bed for about 2 weeks now, and is doing really well! We will see if it stays that way when she realizes she can get out of the bed by herself! Has anyone put two babies in one room, what are the tricks to make this work???
I got inspired from and found this great frame and candlestick holder to redo from D.I.
I got my first tomato today, I'm going to eat you for lunch!

24th of July

Our cute little town has its own parade on the 24th, it reminds me alto of all the Vernal parades I went to growing up with lots of horses and old cars, but nothing too exciting! It was fun though, our primary kids decorated their bikes and we were nominated to ride with them, Taylor made this cute little hand cart, and Brynne was a hit. After the parade I went and got a maternity massage that was amazing! There is this place in Spanish Fork called Primrose resort, and they are having a sale until the end of august, a hour massage was only $30! It was such a cute place, I ended up being there for 2 hours. They had me come early and you sit in the "relaxation" room, then I had my massage, then they have a sauna you can sit in for free, a nice shower, and this room filled with sand and some hammocks with vitamin d lights. They also had a room you could eat complimentary snacks. Anyways it was all very girly, but way nice! We went swimming later that day, and as you can tell nothing makes Brynne more happy than swimming. Multiple times a day she tries to get her swim suit on so we can go swimming somewhere!

Good Book!

Taylor and I are listening to this book on CD. It is fabulous, although very sad. It's about some Latter Day Saint Immigrants that sacrifices literally everything to travel to Utah, based on a true story. I usually try to stay away from books that are sad because I get way to emotionally involved. But this book makes me grateful for everything I have, and a little guilty for using any modern conveniences. There is a fun love story involved, so that is always a plus. Its so inspiring how much faith these people had. In the spirit of Pioneer Day, you should read it!

June and July

Well, we had a little grape juice/camera accident so I am very sad we haven't taken pictures of our crazy busy summer so far! But I still wanted to write about the highlights so I can look back and remember.

-A few weeks ago we went camping at Flaming Gorge. I love that place because I grew up going there! We went with Matt and Stephanie Williams from our ward who are living in Vernal for the Summer. Their Grandparents have a cabin we got to stay in, so technically we weren't camping we were sleeping on a king sized bed. Fabulous. We fished, went to the dam, made tin-foil dinners, went on the dam tour, tried to keep Brynne from jumping in the water 24/7.

- We went to Rexburg for the fourth of July, this is my 7th year of being in Rexburg for the 4th! Great tradition! We went to the parade, had a delicous BBQ with Suzanne and Troy, saw my cousins, went to the green belt in I.F. for the fireworks (but left before the fireworks) Stayed with my Bff roommate from college, went to breakfast with Grandma and George, went swimming with Carrie and Justin at Lava hot springs. I was completely exhausted after this weekend!

- The Walker family reunion was this weekend so we got to see all of Taylors family. Erica and Riley stayed with us, Brynne absolutely loved having her cousins around all the time. I have been having a really hard time keeping her entertained with out them. We spent time with Taylors parents and Alex and Megan and girls. It was another great weekend!

- Now we are staying in the area waiting for this baby! I went to the Dr. the other day and I will be induced on Aug. 10th if I haven't had him yet.

- My new job is going great, I love it so far! I have a lot of responsibility and it keeps me busy, but its working out great with our schedules and it makes me happy to have a couple hours with a change of scenery. Hopefully it will stay that way after Dane is born. Oh yeah, we decided we are going to name him Dane J Broughton! Unless of course I go see the twilight movie and decide he needs to be a Jacob or a Edward, we will see.
