August 2015

This cute boy turned seven months old.



Jared and his friend from work, Eric, flew to SLC to visit Reid Ranch.  It was a very quick, 24 hour visit!

I feel like I'm learning more and more about how to observe the Sabbath Day 
and I loved reading this quote.


Such an amazing surprise and find one of my best friends from my club volleyball days wrote an article for the Ensign!  It was so good.  You can read it here.  


Starting to love solids.  Although he doesn't look too sure here.

Riding in the stroller likea big boy.

Sunday walks


I love my boys!

Cooking cookies & biscuits in homemade solar ovens for camp certification.

The end result :)

Love that profile!







Orlando City soccer game for a birthday party for a friend.
So fun.  But so hot.

Mom of two for a day.  That was a busy day!

The teaching of electronics begins.


We were thrilled to hear Tom + Chee from Shark Tank opened a franchise in Orlando!  We tried the Grilled Cheese Donut and it was amazing.

Birthday party for our neighbor.

Love this boy.

I've had fun making a new treat each Sunday.  This was Toll House Chocolate Chip Pie and it was so good.  Until I realized the culprit of my sugar headaches is semi-sweet chocolate so I gave the rest of the pie to a friend so I wouldn't be tempted to eat it and have a headache.  Haha.  Milk chocolate it is!

As Taylor would say, "Tis the season for candy carn!"

This was pretty amazing!


Lots of entertaining Ollie in between naps/when I was able to read with the girls.

An intermission for a volleyball game for Mutual.

So proud of the three girls that did the whole thing!

Discovered the store "Once Upon A Child" and loved getting all of this for only $17!

Ollie the bull

Love that quote


These are so good too.




A fun mutual where we all shared beauty tips.  The girls know a lot!  
Way more than I did when I was a teenager. :)  


Then Sister Allred brought out her super strong electric hair razor and the girls 
screamed and shrieked being brave enough to try it.  Haha!

First time sitting in the big boy seat!


 
Jared took a course to become a boat captain.  It was two weeks long from 6-10pm at night and it required a lot of time and energy after working all day.  I'm so proud of him for studying hard and passing.  You can now call him Master Captain Jared!  


When your baby hasn't quite mastered the pincer grasp :)

This was super yummy.

The bracketed part was so very enlightening.

When my two loves came together (Ollie + Halloween) = 
Joy!
