Happy Birthday Katy! (a day late)

Katy and I took an English class together in college. We thought we were smart an efficient because we would take turns going to class and fill each other in on the lecture. We did a research paper and report on alternative childbirth together. Our teacher asked us if we would practice alternative childbirth methods when we became mothers. Back then it seemed ages before either of us would actually be making our own decisions on childbirth. Katy was the first to marry and the first to begin bringing children into this world. She has experienced all sorts of methods of bringing children into this world. I was able to attend the birth of Olive, Katy and Ryan's third daughter. Katy amazed me (even more so after I myself gave birth). No matter what method of childbirth Katy chose with each new baby she did it with grace and reverence. This is why I admire Katy, no matter what she does, she does it with a grace and reverence for life. Thank you for your example Katy, love Ashley.

I & E

I think the shape of Ivy's eyes are similar to Ann's what do you think?

At least he is color coordinated, right?

He would rather put the lids on his fingers then draw!

Pigs & Polka Dots!

Ivy in her Sunday best!

Eli loves Jacob and his iphone!

We arose early to see the balloons do the same but due to windy weather they were unable to perform. But Brian and Eli were entertained by the Lifeflight helicopter that flew in instead!

Afternoon Hike

Eli, Ivy, and I took a little hike up the Provo river trail to Bridal Veil Falls to cool off a bit. The water was a bit frigid to wade in but Eli thoroughly enjoyed throwing rocks in it. Ivy slept the whole time snuggled up to my chest in the Baby Bjorn.
