Road Trip

So if you thought we were crazy to road trip it to Utah from Alabama. We have continued the driving. We just got back from a short little road trip to Denver. My Mom's siblings and their kids had a family reunion there. I am so glad we got to go. It was awesome to see my cousins that I don't get to see that often. We did some really fun things (more of that in another post).
The drive over was beautiful. I definitely appreciate all the different types of scenery way more now that I am not around it all the time. My wonderfully brave sister-in-law Lucy drove by herself with her 4 kids so we helped her out and took my niece Eliza with us in our car. Ruby loves hanging out with her so it worked out perfectly. We stopped at a few spots where some beautiful Indian jewelry was being sold. The girls thought it was great...especially cause my mom bought them each a necklace.

Fun times in the Hot Tub

This little guy is so adorable, with the cutest smile ever.

Cousins Party

We had a fun get together with my cousins on my dads side
My uncle Richard said he was so glad to learn about the little bbq from his kids.
He loved it that we had made the effort and all of the arrangements.
I had to laugh cause I hadn't thought twice about getting together with these cousins.
In fact I love it.
I love catching up and talking, and all of the little kids have so much fun together at Uncle Ben's house.
Even though he terrorizes them.
The only problem this time was that we all decided that we need to come up with something really exciting to talk about for the next time we get together, since my cousin Brooke and Clint out did us all with their Helicopter talk......they think they are so cool!!!!!!!
Which to tell you the truth they are pretty cool.
Love you guys

Road Trip

We took a last minute Road trip, and when I say last minute I really mean last minute. Clint came home for lunch on Wednesday and said he had the opportunity to take two weeks off if we wanted. So Thursday morning we hit the road.

Beautiful scenery along the way

Ruby was a trooper. She is awesome on road trips.
Although it doesn't seem like it would be too bad with a DVD player and an I pad.

And we ended up in UTAH

5 Years Ago Today

Our Perfect little Ruby was born
I can't even imagine life without her.
She has such a sweet nature and has brought so much happiness into our lives
On the hardest days Clint always reminds me that we may only have one child, but our one is as perfect as they come!
We are so lucky to have her in our lives, she has grown up so fast, which is sad, but I find myself looking forward to all the times we will share as she continues to get older

Dear Ruby,
Five years ago today you came into our lives. We were so happy to finally have you, after such a long wait. So many people were at the hospital waiting to meet you and love you. You made so many people smile from the day you were born. While we stayed at the hospital the nurses said they had never had so many visitors for one person. And they were all coming to see you.
The night you were born so many friends were there visiting and we all stayed up with you til two in the morning just looking at you. It was the happiest moment of my life.
You made so many people feel loved.
You still have such a sweet loving nature about you
We love spending all of our time together as a family and when we have to be apart we are always thinking of you and can't wait to see you again.
You are so excited to be 5 just like all of your friends from school
We hope this year is as wonderful as the last.
We love you very much
Mom & Dad

Our day started out with Ruby wanting a new headband, so she told me everything she wanted and this is what we ended up with.

I think it is pretty cute for her first design

Yep that is my brother in law Rex.
He came down for the weekend from Ft. Benning

Gary Sinise and the Lt. Dan Band put on a great show
It was super cool to celebrate the 4th with so many people that support and love this country.
They even sang Sweet Home Alabama, which was super fun.

Happy 4th of July to all those that we love
We are so grateful to be apart of the Army and feel so proud of the sacrifices that so many wonderful people make each day!!!!
