I've decided to start teaching Lily more of the alphabet. She can sing the song but now we're going to start 'recognizing' each letter.
So, I made her own little classroom and we'll focus on one letter a week. I know we're only on 'A' but she seems to be really enjoying it!

Father/Daughter Campout!

Annnnnnnnnnd..............they're off!!
To their very first Father/Daughter Campout!
(I don't know what to do with myself! I haven't had ME time, like this, in over 2.5 years!!!)

Welcome Home Sister McLelland!!!

My sweet cousin, Katie, just got home from serving a mission in Tennessee. I had the wonderful opportunity of being at the airport to welcome her home! 
(Also, happened to be the exact same flight that Brian came home on too!!!!)

 Sorry for the SUPER blurry picture, but here she is walking down the loooooooong hallway.

Feeling Patriotic

This is my latest craft project. I came up with the idea, Brian did the measurements, and this is what we ended up with. We LOVE it! If you know me at all, the 4th of July is my favorite holiday! This was the perfect project for me!!

A+ for Anna!

My sister, Anna, just graduated with her Master's Degree and Teaching Credential. My mother and I decided to throw her a little party, in her honor, at my Grandma Dawna's house. We was a great afternoon!

King's Canyon and Sequoia National Parks

We took advantage of living so close to another National park.
Here are lots of pictures of our REALLY fun day!

 You about fall backwards while looking up to the top of the Giant Sequoias!

 General Sherman (tallest tree in the world! well over 300 ft!)

 The bark of these Giants feel like sponges. Weird!

 Without zoom (above) with zoom (below)

 Lily insisted on stopping and sitting on EVERY single rock or log! 

I think we'll go again and try some other trails!
