Fire Safety Fun!

Last week, we had a ward activity at the fire department for some fire safety tips - oh so fun! Emmy had a lot of fun running around the fire trucks and exploring and Jake and I had a lot of fun running after her :) We did learn that we need to have a fire escape plan in case we have a fire. And, of course, we learned to STOP, DROP and ROLL!

Look at how big those tires are! They're bigger than Emmy!

Emmy wanted to get in the truck, but it was against the rules!

Fun with Max

Emmy and I invited Jessica and Max to walk down to campus the other day. We let the kids loose and they had so much fun running around and feeling free! We came prepared and brought bubbles for them to play with. Of course they loved that! What cute kiddos!

Cute little Maximo!

Running free!

Blowing bubbles :)

ATV Adventure!

Ok, so maybe not the biggest ATV adventure, but Emmy had a lot of fun! My dad whipped out one of the 4-wheelers last week and took Emmy for a little ride around the parking lot at my mom's office. She had such a blast! (And I think my dad had just as much fun) :)

P.S. That's my parent's new house in the background. They'll start moving in this weekend. I'll post pics of the house when it is done. It is beautiful!

Cedar Breaks

On Saturday, we decided to take a trip up to Cedar Breaks (it is only 30 minutes away so we had to take advantage of the short distance and beautiful day). Emmy had so much fun running around, touching the flowers and hiking all by herself :) She loved wearing her cute little hat and her Dora glasses. She kept them on the whole time, which is a record for her!

Here are the highlights from our trip:

Emmy is enjoying nature :) She sniffed the flower, too

Enjoying a break on the log bench

Hiking by herself :) She just took off without us and went exploring

I love taking pictures of beautiful nature

And here is Cedar Breaks - so beautiful!

We hadn't been camping all summer so we decided to finally go! We had so much fun camping at Navajo Lake. Emmy LOVED being outside, running around and exploring. She stayed up late, we couldn't get her to go to bed, but when she finally layed down, she was out like a light! We had fun roasting hot dogs, making s'mores and looking at the deer that came right into our campsite. Here are the highlights of the trip:

Emmy and her daddy are buddies!

Exploring the great outdoors!

Sittin' on a log . . .

Looking at the chipmunk . . . look hard and you can see it on the tree

Emmy and daddy watching the deer eat right by our camp!

Here, Emmy is eating a hotdog, minus the hotdog. She took it out and decided to just eat the bun, the little crazy!

Emmy was saying "cheese!" in this pic. She likes to cheese it!

These butterfly/moths were everywhere. They looked so pretty against the yellow flowers.

Beautiful scenery!
