Cheesin' it Up

So, lately anytime Braelyn sees the camera she instantly says "Cheese", and wants me to show her the pictures on the camera. So, the other day we played and took a few! She's such a nut...I wonder where she gets it? ;)
Me and my girl...

I think she's kinda pulling a Popeye grin here...ack ack ack!!! I love it!

Pretty girl

Braelyn also figured out that she can have her own little "hammock" using my legs, and a blanket! She loves it!

We just got back from a nice long trip to Utah for Britton's "Father-Son annual camp out". I know he had a blast with all his brothers, dad, and cousins, and Braelyn and I had fun hanging out in Layton with Grandma, and cousins! It was an all around great trip! Here are some pics of the the men roughing it on their camp out. They did many "Manly" things like, horseback riding, shooting guns....ALOT, riding quads, sittin' by the fire, & getting dirty....very manly!!!! Anyways here are a few pics:
All the Black boys

Ride 'em Cowboy...he he!

Yee Haw! What a handsome cowboy!

A bunch of the crew....brothers, cousins, uncles, and nephews

Cooper, Trevor, Carson, Britton....

Shootin' it up

So, like I said, while they were getting dirty, shooting guns, and camping, we had fun being clean, going to a dinosaur park, bowling, going to lunch, and swimming! I don't have alot of pics to document it because Britton had the camera, but here are a few after he got back....
Braelyn just stayed in this position forever...don't know why, but it was sure darn cute!!!

One day we went up Ogden canyon, and ate at a little restaurant called The Oaks. The seating was outdoors, and right by a little river/stream! It was perfect weather, and super Beautiful. Braelyn LOVED sitting right next to the water too.

Here a couple of pics that have absolutely nothing to do with Utah, but I've been meaning to put them up for a while. We have a little splash park close by, and we've gone a few times. Braelyn wasn't so sure about it the first time, but she LOVED it the second time.....

Hope everyone is having a great summer!
