Look who's walking!!!

Abby took her first steps today! Of course she did it when I was gone and Brandon was watching her. When I got home from class she did it again for us! The first couple of times she took two or three steps and laughed but then she did this! Happy day!

Holy Cow!!!

That's exactly what I wanted!




I used my mom's camera to take Abby's birthday pictures and I forgot to put them on my computer before she left so I finally just got them back! I will publish a post tomorrow with all of them but I couldn't resist putting this one up now!

First Step

Abby took her first step yesterday! She did it for me earlier in the day and then again for Brandon when he got home from work but she only stepped once both times and then sat back down! Lindsey and Sarah are here visiting for the next week. Abby is loving having a play buddy, but she is kinda a little bully sometimes, she loves to pull Sarah's hair.

Brandon and I stayed up late to see the meteor shower last night. We were originally planning on going up the caynon to see it but by the time it was midnight we were too tired to go anywhere so we just went out to the backyard. It was pretty cool but next time we want to go up in the mountains to see it better.

New Mexico

This last weekend we took a quick trip to Albuquerque for a singing competition that Ashley qualified for. She did a good job, the judges really liked her. To make a long story short, the whole competition was a lot different than we expected. Most of it turned out to be on Sunday and Ashley didn't want to compete on Sunday so we came home. It was a tough decision for her but I know she did the right thing! So far for each of these competitions she has had to sing in front of a bunch of people judges and she gets critiqued right after she finishes in front of everyone. She is a lot stonger than me, I don't think I could ever put myself in that kind of situation.

Abby's first Push-up

Right before she sang (she was the first one to go)

The Count of Monte Cristo

The BEST book ever. Really, I'm not exaggerating and I'm not talking about scriptures or anything like that. While I was reading it I kept thinking how amazing the writing was. Each storyline was interesting, not like some books where you can't wait for it to get back to the exciting part. I can't believe it took me this long to think about reading it, but now that I have I will be reading it again (and again.) Read it and let me know what you think. Oh, and by the way, it's the longest book I've ever read too. Brandon is happy to have his wife back!

Sundance

Brandon took me up to Sundance the other night to watch the summer theater perform "Big River." It was my first time in Sundance and my first time seeing an outdoor theater and both were well worth the 30 min. drive. When we pulled up to the parking lot they had a shuttle take us to the lodge where we got on a tractor-trailer to take us up the hill to the theatre. The mountains and trees were surrounding us, it was gorgeous. It made me want to get outside and go hiking or camping! Can't wait to go back to Sundance!
