Fun in the Sun

So, while we were in Utah for the wedding, we also got to go to our nephews first football game, which Britton's brother was coaching! It was later in the day, so the sun was not in our faces, and in the shade it was heaven! Braelyn had so much fun with her cousins running around and playing...

(Bella, Braelyn, Piper, Saige)


London hung out with us, and was such a good baby, as always...




We also got to see London's birth mother and some of her family! They happened to be up there visiting too! I can't post any pictures of that event (we took lots), but we had such a good time with them! It was fun for them to see how big London is getting, and see her now that she is mobile :) While we were there, London was showing off her wrestling skills, and pinned Braelyn!!! haha It was SO funny! They are also so sweet to Braelyn too, even if she is s stinker to them at times! :) We can't wait to see em again!

Beautiful Wedding

Last week we ventured up to Utah, yes again, for Britton's sister, Sheridan's, wedding! I can't believe she's even old enough to get married! It was such a great day, & everything was so beautiful. Sheridan and David got married in the Salt Lake Temple, on Aug. 18th, and the ceremony was SO good. Their sealer was amazing, and I could have listened to him talk for hours. :)

The happy couple coming out of the temple...

All the sister-in-laws...

Following the temple, they had a yummy luncheon for all the family and close friends.

Here are all the girlie cousins...

London and I...

The next event was the recepton, a few hours later (thank goodness...we all needed to relax a bit before hand). It was gorgeous! It was a little warm outside until the sun went down, but there was lots of shade so it was all good.

All the little girls looked adorable in there fancy, bright dresses.... Braelyn was instantly drawn to the horses in the field right behind us....

She was very excited to feed them some grass....

Even though it was a crazy, long, and tiring day, London did SO amazing!!!! She didn't get cranky at all, and was so happy the whole time! Everyone was just eating her up, but then again, how could you not....




In addition to the wedding, we also got to see London's birth mother, and her family! We had a great time hanging out, and showing them all of London's tricks! ;>

AND More pictures to come of a few more fun things we did!

Chapman Reunion at Bear Lake

For over 6 months I have been looking forward to my family's reunion. It seemed like forever for it to get here, and passed by in a flash (those things typically do). We went to Bear Lake this year, and had so much fun! I LOVE being around my family, and wish we could all live closer together! We all met together on a Sunday night in Logan, Utah, so we could all be there and rested for the next day. The next day we took family pictures (which hadn't been updated in at least 6ish years!!!!), and did our grocery shopping for the week ahead of us. Here is just a small glimpse of our family pics.....

My parents and the siblings....

Grandparents and Grandbabies....


Then we were off to Bear Lake to check out our cabin. It was absolutely GORGEOUS up there! The weather was amazing, and we had an awesome view of the lake from our cabin...
Me, my sisters Gina, Amanda, and my niece, Molly...


While we were up there, this little girl figured out how to crawl the real way instead of army crawling....


We all spent lots of time out on the deck enjoying the view and the weather.....


Amanda and I


My very debonair brother, Brian (hehe)...


My mom and dad...I LOVE this picture of them....


Mammaw and Braelyn

Braelyn had such a blast with all her cousins! I didn't see her much when we were at the cabin because she insisted on being with all the other kids. :> I just loved watching her interact with them...she's getting so big. Here she is out playing with bubbles with Rorie...

All the kiddos (minus two babies) hanging out in the hot tub! They are all so dang cute!

We also celebrated my little nephew, Prestons, 1st birthday while we were there! He quite enjoyed his cake....We went to the beach two of the four days we were there, but I forgot my camera the first day, so here are just a few from the second day. We rented a seadoo, and had so much fun hanging out on the beach.

Me taking my sister Amanda on her first ever ride!





Britton taking Braelyn for a ride...

Braelyn getting back from her ride. She liked it, but didn't want to go out again. :> She had so much fun playing in the sand with her cousins.

One of the other days, we kinda split off the do a couple different things. Some went to a cave, others went shopping, and we went with my sis and her family to the park. It was so beautiful outside, and was perfect for the kids to run around and play.

Gina and I...

Dad and Braelyn on the swings...

My brother-in-law brought a slack line, and we all had fun trying it out! It's so dang hard, but really addicting to try!


My pretty London...

Thanks to all my family for being so great! I loved every minute of being with everyone, and I can't wait till the next one!
