We took a trip!

This summer we took a trip to the Oregon coast and had SO MUCH FUN! First stop was Cannon Beach, and that town is ADORABLE! I would love to go back every year! I also had a nice freak out because Goonies was filmed there and totally geeked out every time there was something "goonie-ish" around. Dakota spent all day walking on the beach and exploring.
After a couple days Cannon Beach we went to Newport (passing the TALLAMOOK cheese factory on the way ) and went to the Aquarium there and ate yummy ice cream and shopped along the way.
Im ready to go back!!

Just being a little cutey pants

Someone partied to hard with the Jordans (Utah) at Christmas time

Our daughter doesn't need a pony, she has Gunner
(You do see a camo Snuggie on the couch. Jeffs Christmas gift to Hyrum)
Time to update the blog! I am in a great mood as today is the FIRST DAY OF SPRING!!
We are so excited for the warm weather! Our summer is filling up with some great family reunions and some exciting camping trips!
Hyrum is staying busy with work. He is fighting fires and saving lives while being stationed at the Boise airport. He loves his job! He stays busy playing with Dakota on his days off so I can work while he is home. He is also busy getting the trailer ready for our summer o' fun. Hunting season is at a stand still until the turkey come out to play this spring. He got a new calling in primary teaching the 8&9 year olds. It sounds like its a lot of fun!
Dakota is such a sweet little lady. Hyrum took control of the sleep training around 9 months because I couldn't take getting up 3-7 times a night. He did a great job with the training and she now sleeps through the night. She has her two bottom teeth and her top teeth are about to make their debut. She finally crawls and is pulling herself up. I'm in no hurry for her to start walking. She is one chill baby now-a-days. I love it! She is getting a hang of the fake cry, but I can see right through her pouty lips.
I have been doing a lot of hair, and luckily Hyrums schedule allows me to work while he stays home with Dakota. Monday-Thursday I go to Zumba with some girlfriends and its a blast! It just a dance party 4 days a week for an hour. I was released from being ward choir director and with that release came much relief. I learned a lot, but I had no clue what I was doing. I am now working with the girls in primary doing activity days. I'm excited about this calling!
We will try to do better with our blog. Now that winter is coming to an end we will have more to post!

ozzies glam shot
gunner swimming out to nowhere

the dock

don't worry, she was warm

gammy made this beenie when she was born, I was hoping it would still fit

We recently inherited the Wilson family tent trailer so we took it up to Ponderosa (near McCall,ID) and took it for a test run. I had never camped in a trailer of any kind before and I loved it! Especially with Dakota, she was nice and warm all night because we had a space heater plugged in and didn't even have to use the actual heater in the trailer.

Then we took the dogs out to Payette lake and threw duck decoys in the water and had gunner fetch the little duck. Hyrum took Gunner out to the dock and gunner got curious about the water and took an accidental nose dive off the edge and just kept swimming out to the middle of the lake, we were afraid we would have had to jump in after him. SO FUNNY!

We were sad that we waited until the end of the camping season to head out, but we are ready for next year!
