Making Memories






"Mom, I want to be JUST like Daddy!!" Hence, the similar outfits.



Taking a nap in the beautiful weather, Pyps snuggled up to Daddy.







Professional Marshmallow Roaster




Gaje and his horny toad.

Need I say more?!





Following the leader.

The boys, doing what they do best.

We had so much fun making memories as a family this weekend. I am so incredibly blessed with a wonderful husband and sweet kids. It was so fun to watch our family bond, and become even closer. These are the times we will look back on and cherish. I can' almost hear my mom saying, "I remember when...." or "I wish I could just go back to when..."Only more good, happy memories to come! I love you sweet family!

Congratulations He He!

Congratulations Lexie! I can't believe you graduated! Wow how time flies! We love ya!

We sure love Hannah Banana too! I can't believe how tall you girls are!!

Rhett Rhett and Gaje {Buds} Haven't seen eachother for a while, so they are "catching up".

Shouldn't merry-go-rounds be outlawed?! Seriously, good times! Ha ha, Lexie fell O-F-F the merry-go-round right before her graduated ceremony. That's what happens when all of us adult girls (oxymoron?) hop on for a joy ride. Thanks for keeping us entertained! We all couldn't walk after wards. It's always good to see the Kelley Family, and for some reason it seems like we laugh the entire time we are together. The happiness and laughs are contagious. Love you guys, come visit soon!!!

Look at Kade, soo, soo cute!!!!

Mother's Day


First off, I may be way too emotional with all of the good and wonderful blessings I have received this year. But, I have the best family ever. Mother's Day was icing on the cake. I keep asking my self, "is this for reals???" Can I truly be this happy? You better believe it. I am so, so happy. What a perfect Mother's Day to share it with the ones I love most. I have had so many examples of excellent mothers in my life. My own mother is fabulous. She has been such an amazing example to me through out my life. I don't know where I would be with out her support and love, constantly reminding me of my potential and strength. She has be so wonderful to me this past year through my trials and hardships. She has taught me so many valuable principals through out my life thus far. I have such great grandmothers as well, I love the time I spent learning from them. I have such great memories to share with my Grandma Allen that she still creates with me. From learning all of her fun little crafts, sleeping in the lifesaver sleeping bags, endless laughs, Greer- the cabin, yummy breakfasts before Lehi Days, the scrapbook store, climbing her tree, and all of the little treats she would surprise us with. Now, I am blessed once again with another fabulous example, my mother-in-law. I am so lucky to be surrounded by these wonderful women. I have the sweetest little family, and I am so grateful I am able to share it with Ryan. Aren't we such a cute little family?!

Honeymooners











Oh my goodness, we had so so much fun on our honeymoon. We for sure could have stayed a lot longer, but missed the kids way too much! They were so excited to see us, almost as much as we were to see them. Gaje kept saying, "I love you Mom...I love you Dad..... I just love you!" Pyper couldn't stop staring at us. She would lay on us, then look at our faces, then lay on us again. So sweet. It was fabulous to see them. If we could only stay on Mexico time! So blessed to be married to this WONDERFUL man! I am pretty sure I couldn't be luckier, can't quite get off cloud 9.... and by the way, aren't I looking tan?! I have never been this dark, which is pretty pathetic if you ask me, because Ryan is 20 times darker than I am. Ridiculous.

WE DID IT!!!!





Finally, we are a family! Couldn't be luckier. Thanks for everyone's love and support. I am so glad we were able to spend this special day with those we love the most!
