"If you are still in the process of raising children, be aware that the tiny fingerprints that show up on almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys scattered about the house, the piles and piles of laundry to be tackled will disappear all too soon and that you will—to your surprise—miss them profoundly."
-Pres. Thomas S. Monson

Festive Fourth

We spent our Independence Day just like we do every year- a vacation to Star Valley.  After being tortured with 100+ degree days with no air conditioning, we welcomed the 80* high for the weekend.  We filled our days with badminton in the dark, parades, fireworks, hikes to Intermittent Springs, ATV rides up Wiki-Up and Smith's Fork, pedicures, manicures, s'mores, fires, tricks on the tramp, and food, food, food.  We love our summer home!  And now for the picture onslaught...


  1. Your 4th of July looks like it was a blast. We spent ours traveling from Grand Canyon to Phoenix. Fun but not really celebratory.

  2. My brother in law grew up in Star Valley. For such a small place it produces a lot of people I know!

    Looks like a fun weekend! Such incredible pictures!

  3. Man, those are some cute kids. I love the pic of Dallas photo bombing Will. Classic!
