The BIG Catch up - Part 1

Ok so here we go....the first three are the last nice days of summer, we went to Riley park with Papa. I just love that place. Such memories and so fun! Now is our Anniversary. I suprised Jonathan and we went horse back riding and white water rafting!

So the white water rafting was the funnest and scareiest thing we have ever done. We actually got to go on a more advanced one then we signed up for, cause the other one was closed. So there was this huge wave we took on and everyone else before us were fine and after us...but oh no..our boat goes on it's side, and I thought we were gonner's no joke. Cause I had this huge undertoe right at my face and if we flipped I was sure we would have been stuck under. One guy did flip but he was ok and we rescued him. It was crazy...but cause we didn't fall in, it was SO fun! Then we went to this part callled the devil's toilet bowl where you get stuck and keep going round and is actaully sooo fun. Anyway, it was a great way to celebrate our seven years! Love you hon!

Just too cute for words :)

So this was in September we went to Sycome lake. The kids had so much fun with their cousins.

Then it was off to Calaway for a few more times before the cold. The girls just LOVE it!

So not for me...

This one is soo fun...yah I know, I am a wimp!
Taylor hanging out

Ya, this is a ride the GIRLS went on....I couldn't believe it. I hate this ride. They loved it!

Oh now here is the most important part of my catch up. The girls first day of school!! I can't even believe I am saying this...of course it's just preschool and it was only 2 days a week in the afternoon. But it was sooo huge for me. Oh how have things changed in only a few months....that will have to be in the next post.
So these are all Brianna first. The girls were so cute...posing. I am posting alot of pictures. Because this is very special to me, and because no one reads this anymore, it is more for our records.

Now Elayna's turn :)

My two beautiful girls!

They got to have special ice cream after their first day!

I love these two...and they love each other more than words can say.

And Grandma and Papa Martin's house. Sporting their new outfits.

I was so lucky to be able to go to General Relief Society Meeting with my Sister and Mother!!! For so long I have gone without them. So special, and we had such a wonderful time.

My sweet Brianna, has just not good eyes and so now we have to do this patch over one eye to strengthen the other...but she won't even wear that now. She sure looks cute though!
