Flowers, Family, & Fun!

Don's parents came for the weekend and we had such a great time with them. Those of you who know Ralf know that he loves flowers and pretty much anywhere that Ralf and Nita go, they check out the gardens in the area. While they were here we, of course, went to a couple of beautiful gardens. I'm so glad they love to do that because we would probably never go on our own, but I always love the gardens that we get to see when we are with them. Brighton had fun smelling all of the flowers and skipping around the gardens, and she was in heaven with all of the attention she got from Neen and Papa this weekend. We love you guys! Come again soon!

Home Sweet Home

So for those of you who don't know, we purchased our first house! One of the doctor's Don works with, who was also in our ward, called us up one night and told us that they had just bought another house, needed to sell this one quickly, and would give us a killer deal if we wanted it. So that night we drove over to look at it and after much back and forth and freaking out (mostly by me), we decided to get it. We LOVE it! It is in a great neighborhood on a coldesack. We got to stay in our ward, which we love, and we are really excited. We are learning how to take care of the yard and still have a few more paintings to find homes for, but we are more or less pretty settled now. So come on out and visit us everyone! ;)

Brighton has had a great time playing in her new backyard. She loves to hide up under the big trees and with the recent warm weather has pretty much lived outside. Her blow-up pool from last year popped so she picked this princess pool out. She calls it her swimmy castle and LOVES it! The pictures of the princesses on it are kind of scary looking, but she doesn't seem to mind so whatever. :)
