So Sad

You can't see the tears streaming down her cheeks, but they definitely make for one sad little girl. How do kids learn to cry and throw fits?

Trip To Bryce

Farley's Grandma Crofts was celebrating her 90th birthday with a reunion at Bryce Canyon. We headed out Monday afternoon and wow, what a long drive. Colee actually did amazing on the drive there and back. I was definitely the worst passenger out of the three of us :)

On our way through Capitol Reef this is what we saw walking down the road!
This lovely little beaver was marching down the middle of the road. Cars were going around the little guy and snapping pictures.

We arrived and checked in to Ruby's Inn at 8:00, ate dinner with Skyler and Ruth, and then headed up to the campground. Colee was exhausted by the time we returned. She fell asleep on the way back to the hotel and didn't move an inch until the next morning. This is her after I pulled her out of the car and before I put her in her crib.
 The next day we headed back up to the campground. We sat and visited with everyone. 
 Colee LOVED being outside. She picked up every rock in the area and probably tasted each one too. She was filthy dirty within 10 minutes of being there. She had so much fun.

That afternoon we went back to the hotel and went swimming!!
This is Colee and Cam in their swimming diapers.
We had a blast! Cam is a regular fish and being Colee's first time swimming it took her a few minutes to warm up to the water. By that afternoon the kids (and adults) were exhausted. On our way back to camp Colee and Cam were out. They both fell asleep within seconds of each other. It was hilarious.

The next morning we had planned on going to visit with Jan and Cole in Tropic, but Farley came down with strep throat and we ended up in Panguitch at the clinic until noon. So after the clinic we just headed home.

We had a lot of fun on our trip and it is a good thing too, because when we got home there was a snake in our garage...

Good Morning!!

Colee's hair is getting so thick. It also has curl to it. So after I bathe her at night and put her to bed with slightly damp hair, she wakes up in the morning with the craziest hair! Colee also hates having her hair done. Most of the time she shakes her head as fast as she can while I'm trying to do it. I'm lucky if I get anything in her hair at all. Her hairdo usually only lasts part way through the day anyway, because if she finds her pigtails or ponytails, she will do anything she can to tear it out. Headbands and hats...yeah, let's just say not a chance.

Three Awesome Years!

Our anniversary was on June 1 and I was in Tabiona visiting my family. Farley had flowers delivered to me. Isn't he great?! I love Farley so much and I'm so thankful for him!

Memorial Day!

For Memorial Day weekend we went to Tabiona! We were able to put flowers on graves and visit my Grandma Mecham. It was a great weekend!

More Pictures of Colee!

-Still sleeps all night 8:00 pm to 7:00 am every night.
-Hates having things in her hair. She always tears them out.
-Colee is starting to get skinny. She is 28 pounds and has been for about six to eight weeks. She is getting super tall.
-Can say daddy, momma, grandpa (bampa), bye, ball, baby, and uh-oh.

Random Pictures of Colee

This little girl is constantly going. She holds still only in her sleep. I have no idea how she got the Cheerios box, but I do know the Cheerios covered my entire kitchen floor. Colee loves reading books. She will jabber away as she turns the pages. The Milky Ways she got mad at and just ripped the big bag open and then proceeded to bite into EVERY individual bar to see if any of those were open. Crazy, wonderful little girl.
