Family Photo Shoot

I wanted to get newborn pictures of Chloe three days after she was born, and so I thought we might as well get family pictures for christmas cards while we were at it! It was definitely a challenge to get everyone ready by 8 am. Yeah. 8 AM! and with a newborn. Probably not my best idea, but we got through it and it was so worth it to get some pictures of all of us!

weekend in the mountains

This weekend we went up to the mountains because it's been so hot here in denver!
We found this little path to walk around the lake near silverthorne and it was so pretty.

Devin taught ettie how to throw rocks into the lake.

The next night we had a ward picnic in the mountains. It was so much fun! We had dinner and then a fireside/singing time. Ettie loved the singing part and was really into it.

The kids in our ward LOVE ettie and are so cute with her. She loves it! They took care of her the whole night and played with her. She's a lucky girl!

At one point I looked over and ettie was sitting in a mud puddle eating the mud. So we had to have a wardrobe change. 

And then Devin was nice enough to let me drive home with some friends so we could stop at the J crew outlet on the way home. :)

Visit to LA

Devin got one week off this summer (which was last week)! So we went to California to hang with his dad.

Before the plane ride: she was all smiles.

At dinner after the plane ride: dead tired. She's a trooper!

Every morning we/i LOVE to go to corner bakery. It's right down the street and I love their steel cut oatmeal. (and their blueberry muffins. let's be real.)

Here's ettie swinging in malibu. 

swimming at grandpa's pool.

living the life-watching disney channel and eating chips!

One day we went to the beach in Malibu! It was so pretty!

We decided to bury ettie in the sand and she wasn't very excited about it.

But then she started smiling 20 seconds after. She thought it was pretty funny.

she looks a little anxious in this picture.

our little boy. ;)

grandpa bob got ettie a little shopping cart!  she loves to push that thing around! (and she may have thrown a fit in target when we took it away from her in order to purchase it. drama queen!)

We went to the Santa Monica mall a few times to shop and watch the street performers. 

Visiting grandpa at his office!

We also spent an afternoon at the Getty! I'm so happy that we finally got to see it! It's so pretty up on the hill looking out over LA and there are so many cool things to see inside. 

The last day we were there my dad came into town to meet with a few clients so we got to see him and go to lunch! So fun!

Thanks for a fun week, Bob!
