Happy St. Patricks Day and more...

Well just wanted to wish everyone a Happy St. Patricks Day! Thanks for the bow Vandy!
Also I have been taking a photojournalism class and had to take some pictures so I thought I would show some of the stuff I have done.

First Kurt was so sweet and brought me home flowers on Friday after a terrible day at school! Thank hunny I love you!

This picture I had to have the background clear and the foreground blurry.

This was just the opposite foreground clear, back blury.

The next pictures had to be just window light. I had a lot of fun with these and Ainzley was being really cute.

A Hand Full of Firsts

A list of Ainzley's "first" from the weekend:

  • First stroller ride
  • First time in Salt Lake City
  • First time at a hotel
  • First time swimming
  • First time being sick
  • First time for a 3 hour car ride
  • First time going to the ER!

Well, this week has been really interesting and a lot of "firsts" for Ainzley. This weekend we went to SLC with my family for a wedding. The wedding was early so we went down friday night and stayed in a hotel. Before we even headed down there were a few trials. Starting with our little girl being sick. Ainzley is not feeling well at all. She has been coughing so much that she starts to throw up and now she has a runny nose with it all. This is the first time she has been sick and it brings on a whole new meaning to being parents. We feel so bad that our little girl is so miserable. It got so bad Saturday night after we got back that we ended up taking her to the ER. Luckily everything is okay, but we just wanted to make sure that she wasn't dehydrated or anything since she kept throwing up. Sad thing is though, there is nothing we can give her it all just has to run its course. We hate having our cute little girl be so sick and miserable! While in Salt Lake we were able to enjoy spending time with Brutch, Mom, and Keith. We went to dinner and then went swimming at the pool. This was Ainzley's first time and she really loved the water. We thought she looked really cute, plus the humid atmosphere helped with her cold. It was so cute too, I went and sat on the side of the hot tub and put my legs in while she was sitting on my lap. I just splashed some of the water on her little legs and she fell asleep in my arms. I just love my cute little girl! We have had fun, but it has been a super challenging weekend. Oh and P.S. only 4 weeks and 4 days till graduation! I can't wait!

Way to smile Keith!

Our little family outside the temple. After a long night of no sleep and lots of throwing up I think we look pretty good :) ha ha ha

We put her in her carseat to go to the temple and this is what she did! It was so cute we couldn't help but take a picture. It was like "Please don't put me in there!"

Falling asleep at the hot tub!

Oh I love my daddy!

We have had to use mittens to help her to stop scratching her face up! If you look close you can see how much she has scratched her face.
