Rescue Mission

After realizing that Muffins had been missing for a good 1/2 hour I thought that I better try and find her. So Whit and I went on a search and Whit led me right to her. Apparently, Whit thought that Muffins needed a timeout and pushed her into the closet and blocked her with the laundry basket. Poor Muffins! There isn't anything that Whitney enjoys more than to bug the living crap out of the dogs!

Look at that sad face!

Maniac Magee

Our ward has a book club each month and Maniac Magee was June's book. I was a little bit behind this month and didn't make it to the discussion part (VERY sad!) but I just finished this book and it was by far one of my FAVORITE books I have ever read, thanks Jeanne for picking it! The author, Jerry Spinelli, is so creative in his writing and I love the vocubulary he uses to describe certain situations. The book is a childrens book, yet there are some pretty deep issues that arise. I cried, laughed and loved the creative descriptions by the author. I recommend this book to anyone who wants a fun easy read. I promise, you'll love it!

Day at the Cabin

Danny's family has a cute little cabin up past Kamas at a development site called Sunnybrook. They had their annual work day on Saturday so Danny went up early to work. Whit and I conveniently came after all the work was done. Bummer! :) But we had a fun afternoon playing and going for walks. There is something so peaceful about being in the mountains, I love it!

There was a ranch nearby that had a lot of sheep, goat, and baby cows. Whit had a blast feeding them!

The 2 loves of my life!

Temple Celebration

Last week I got to go to the temple celebration performance at the Conference center and it was AMAZING! For those who don't know, with the Draper and Oquirrh temples being built President Monson wanted to do a temple celebration with all the youth within those 2 districts. We had 7000 youth in our district perform. The performance was in chronological order from when the saints arrived in the valley and then ending with our time. Our stake was in charge of the train era (when the train made it to the valley). At first, when the practices began, it was organized chaos. Imagine trying to direct 200 + kids, not an easy task and one I am glad I didn't have to do! Although it was kinda crazy, the spirit was always there. President Monson said that those who participate will be blessed beyond what they can comprehend. It was really awesome to see these youth sacrifice their time to a cause that they will never forget. The early pioneers sacrificed everything that they had to building their temples, our youth gave their "small sacrifice" to their temple in Draper.

My cute little brother Parker, who I love and look up to also got to participate. His stake was the Indians and he was on the stage with only 8 other people doing a hoop dance. He also got some good face time on the jumbo tran! I know that my brother was blessed with the spirit as he sacrificed his sports and friends to participate in this performance.

I am so grateful to have been able to witness this awesome performance and to have the spirit testify the truthfulness of the gospel. President Monson is gathering his "2000 Stripling Warriors"- girls and boys to become great leaders and examples in these latter days and to usher in the return of our Savior. There is strength in numbers and these good youth are a force to be reckoned with!

This is my sweet nephew Dom who comes to church with us. He got to perform and loved every second of it! He has such an enthusiasm about church that it is contagious. I love his little guy!

This was the Indian hoop dance that my brother was in. He didn't have as many hoops but he did an awesome job!

Our dear and beloved Prophet, President Monson. It was president Eyring's birthday so we all sang to him!

The stage was completely transformed. They had built a huge mountain covering up the pipes with the temple at the top.

And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.

--Isaiah 2: 2

I hope that I can do a better job going to the "top of the mountains". There is no place on earth like temples and I need to go more than just 1 time a month to give my small sacrifice to the Lord!

The Adventures of Whitney and Camden-

These 2 crazy's keep me busy and are now getting into everything. Whit thinks that she rules the house and Camden is happy to be her side kick in whatever adventure she pursues. They are so funny together and make me laugh all day. -- Although, yesterday, we did have a real "fight" moment where Whit had a good loong timeout in her crib for hitting Camden. Little stinker!

We like to play a game called "slam the door in mom and Camden's face." Whit thinks it's hilarous. She shuts the door on us, screams when she is ready for us to open it, then slams it shut again-- while both babies are laughing hysterically. We do it over and over again and it never gets old.

Seriously, who is watching these two?

They climb stairs together. We spend a lot of time outside at the park, going on walks, swimming.. doing anything to wear them out so they take a looong nap! :)

Whit is just observing on her throne..
She is just a little monkey, loves climbing into, on top of, under anything!

Oops! After weeks of standing by and watching Whit take a bath Camden decided he had had enough and took a dive into the bathtub. I have learned that it is easier to just put them in the bath together!

They sleep together and come run errands with me. Camden is sleep- crying. He couldn't decide if he wanted to be awake or asleep! :)

They eat together. Camden is sportin some of Whits pajama pants after he took the dive in the bathtub!
