My brother Parker and I took a trip out to see my sister Shanda in Cedar City last weekend. As a last minute invite we decided to go boating at quail lake. Shanda and Parker did awesome wake boarding. I was of course not prepared and had no swim suite, so I ended up going in a t-shirt and capri sweats. that didn't stop me from getting in the water though. GOOD TIMES!

My mother in law Kathy nicknamed Ryann "patches" because she looks like a cabbage patch baby. She has those big cheeks and she is always sucking in her bottom lip. So today Grandma brought home a red hair, blue eyed cabbage patch kid for her. She LOVED it! Thanks Grandma!
