Benton's Birthday

We had a lot of fun celebrating Benton's first birthday! I remember now why birthday's were so exciting when you are little, I think they are just as great when you have a child. We have loved having Benton this last year and watching him do all the "firsts." I can't wait to see what this next year brings.

Benton loved his new birthday toys!

Watching him eat his cake was hilarious.

Smith's, Sour Cream, and Check Book


Yesterday I walked to Smith's needing just some sour cream to go with dinner. I walked down there with Benton, picked up the sour cream and headed for the check out. When it comes time to pay I realize my wallet was not in my purse and probably left on floor at home as Benton is constantly unloading my purse these days. Luckily I find my check book and with a smile hand my check for $1.52 to the clerk. Unlucky for me they required proof of identity. I told the man my story of the wallet on my floor at home to which he smiled, handed me my receipt along with my sour cream, and told me to have a nice day. Then he took out his OWN wallet and paid my balance. Can you believe it, I was so thankful and impressed by his generosity! The world is still full of good people!

Where Did July GO??

Here is a quick update from our month...

We took Benton to Temple Square and he found the pond and loved it! He loves water these days and feeling the cold on his little hands.

Donut Falls




Benton loves hiking on Daddy's back. He laughs and kicks and sings the whole way, until he is too exhausted to hold that little head up. Donut Falls is a great hike to enjoy for everyone.

Fun Summer Outings

Here is my great friend Martha. We have been friends since our fun experience as girls camp leaders. We were able to stop by and see her and her family in Pinevalley. We had a fun afternoon!
We were all smiles as we began our early morning hike in Zion's, another one of our favorite places to visit.
We went with Lacy and Josh and had a fun weekend visiting them in St. George.
Again, someone always poops out by the end. We love you anyways, Christian :)

Suz Mom, Benton Baby x 2

My friend Liz's sister is named Suzanne and she had a baby and named him Benton. We loved the name, so we borrowed it. Now there are 2 Suz Mom's and 2 Baby Benton's out there, aren't we original :).
