Lola is so fun right now I thought I'd better record some of the funny things that she says.

Lola "Mom, look at me" as she tries to touch her nose with her tongue which is a Brown family trait.

Me " That's great, Lola"

Lola " You do it, Mom"

After I touch my tongue to my nose Lola laughs and says " I didn't know you could do that Mom"

Me "Lola, don't you know your mom is amazing?"

Lola "You're not amazing. Emily(my sister) is amazing!"

Then today while looking at my wedding photo on the wall Lola asked "Mom is this when you were a princess?"

Me "Yes, that's when I married your dad."

Lola "And Dad was your prince!"

4th of July

Grandpa and Grandma Welker, Kristi, Scott and Blake came to stay with us over the 4th. We had a great time! We all went to the Dinosaur Museum at Thanksgiving Point.
The kids were able to experience a "dig". They found some great bones!


We did so many fun things! We went to the parade in Provo, shopped in Park City, visited Todd's new job at The Joseph Smith Memorial building and all in all had a great time!

Bear World

On our way to Yellowstone, we stopped at Bear World.
The kids loved all the rides.

Grandma Bear, Brother Bear, Sister Bear and Baby Bear.
Mama Bear, Sister Bear, Brother Bear and Baby Bear.

They have an albino elk.
The bears did not disappoint!
They were so fun to watch!

The kids and I went with my family to Island Park for an amazing vacation. Todd stayed home to work on his dissertation. Very soon he'll be done and able to join us for all the fun stuff but in the meantime we just go on our own. This was our beautiful cabin.
Not only was the cabin beautiful but the views were equally amazing!

Lola loves her grandpa Mark and he loves her! I think she's his favorite grandchild! (I hope my siblings don't read this)
The kids loved the hot tub.
Everything in Yellowstone is absolutely amazing.The prismatic pools were our first stop. Lola made me a little nervous near the boiling pots but luckily there were a lot of extra hands for her to hold.

The whole fam minus Todd.

Old Faithful didn't disappoint. We made it there just 2 minutes before eruption.
Isn't good old fashioned fun the best?

We saw all kinds of animals. We saw more bison than anything else.

This is where Yellowstone got it's name from the beautiful yellow stone in this canyon.

I felt a little funny posting this photo because it looks like a family picture but nope that's Cody and Milo not Todd and Kye. Oh well, we are one big happy family!

We visited a beautiful natural spring in Island Park. The water was crystal clear.

The kids favorite part of the trip was their souvenirs. Can't wait to get back up there!
