Sooooo in love.
Greg and I were married 10 year ago!
I am a lucky girl, and here is just one reason why:
When we play tennis against one another, Greg gets more excited when I make a good shot than when he does. Add that into everyday life and it makes one happy wife.

Later, we set up camp and cooked dinner over the fire... hot dogs, asparagus, corn on the cob, (plus quinoa salad brought from home). And, of course, S'mores. Aunt Suz, Uncle Joel, Uncle Sean, Anna, Chloe, Luke, and Gray joined us on Friday night for a campfire and hot chocolate. All in all it was a pretty great day.
Saturday, we went for another hike, this time to a restored homestead with a gorgeous view of Stone Mountain. It was such a peaceful place. After the hike and another picnic lunch, C ran around like a wild girl with her older cousins (who were so sweet to include her) for a few hours before we headed home.
A very fun, but exhausting weekend. Saturday night, we put the girls to bed at 7pm and we were in bed by 9pm!

"Bats aren't actually scary. They use sounds to see... it's called echolocation." (whoah!... I had to google that one)
"Mom, today Emory and Ava Grace asked me to be a fairy, because they needed two fairies, and I said yes. I was a fast flying fairy and I had to protect the castle with a bubble. Now they really love me."
2. This week marks the 7th anniversary of us in our house. I can't believe it has been that long. I fall in love with it, again, every Autumn when the weather gets cool and we can spend lots of time on the porch or outside and see the trees start to change.
5. Enjoyed hearing from the Prophet and Apostles during General Conference last weekend. Especially enjoyed this message about children and this one about eternal decisions. Also, a quote from President Uchtdorf's message.
"There is nothing wrong with righteous yearnings—we hope and seek after things that are “virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy.” The problem comes when we put our happiness on hold as we wait for some future event—our golden ticket—to appear."
Here is a video of SJ singing her ABC"s and some photos of the girls displaying some of their library and school projects.
