We had such a great summer. Zac and I got into a fantastic routine with fun things to do every day. Oh how I miss it. For my birthday this year we went to lunch and the zoo with my sisters.
There aren't too many pictures of animals because that is definitely not the highlight for Zac. The only thing he cares about is the carousel. It was a fun day.
Jon and I also had a lovely date while Zac got to have a sleepover with his aunts. Everyone got what they wanted. Then for my party, Jon organized a great BBQ for me. I just love birthdays.
We went for our first boating trip of the season one night for a quick trip. Oh how we all love that boat!

For Father's Day, I decided to take some pictures of Zac looking like his dad. They turned out cute. Zac has such a good example to look up to. We are so blessed to have Jon as the daddy in our family.


Jon graduated from the University of Utah this month in Health Promotion and Education. It was exciting to see him achieve goals he has been working hard on. It was a fun day.

After the graduation, we had a Cinco de Mayo/Graduation party for him. Yummy food. Fun people. Kristen made him morter board cake pops for dessert.

His parents gave him a new golf bag. And from me he got a new watch to add to his collection.

We are so proud of you Jon!!!!

One of my best friends at work turned 50 this May, so I made her a cake. I didn't want to make it black and dreary (who wants to eat black food?) I had seen some flowers she had at her house and decided to make it like those instead. I liked how it turned out and it was super yummy too- with lemon curd and lemon buttercream inside).

Jon has loved U2 for as long as I have known him. He had been bugging me about the concert for months, but we just couldn't justify how much it would cost, and I wasn't really all that interested in it. Well, I was sitting in my math endorsement class about to take a test, when I get a phone call that my sister had been given 4 tickets to the concert from a student and had invited Jon and I to go. I have to say, man can they put on a show!!! It was incredible. The stage was amazing. Jon was thrilled, and we all had a great time.

I took a lot of videos, but they take so long to load, so just know it was great. We were glad that the tickets didn't go to waste.


During Spring Break this year Zac and I spent many hours in the bathroom working on potty training. He picked up on one part really quickly, the other part we are still working on 7 months later. :( Someday, right?

Easter was great. Zac is getting to be an expert at finding eggs. He is also an expert on eating all the candy!

He looked very handsome in his new outfit.
You know the Easter Bunny likes you when he comes to your house and your grandma's house too!
Doesn't this just remind you of George Castanza?
