I just wanted to post a few from the wedding & reception of the darling couple.  I had fun taking pictures at a wedding!  Thanks to Matthew and Marissa I'll have another wedding to shoot at the end of August.  I can't wait.  It's fun to see the pictures at the end of the day and even more fun when it's family.  I love these two so much and I hope they had a fabulous day.  I can't wait though for them to feel the pain I did, standing in 100 degree weather chasing after 3 kids who were hungry, bored and miserable.  They just had to hold hands and smile at the cameras.  I dripped from head to toe chasing kids and still had to jump in on a few of the family photos and smile.  One day... you'll feel my pain!  At least I hope you do.  I had to let you all know my true feelings.  Cause when do I not?

On Saturday we went to Raging Waters to celebrate Grandpa and Uncle Matthew birthday and to watch Mallory perform with her dance group.  We had a great day!  The kids love the water!

We had a fabulous 4th of July at Murray pool where we spent most of the day hanging out with Grandpa, Grandma, Aunt Wendy and family.  We enjoyed several hours of eating, and swimming.  The kids could live there I'm afraid so they had a blast.  Later that night we met up and went out to eat with everyone at Cafe Rio.  Then it was home where we watched our neighbors do their box of fireworks.  It was a great 4th of July.

I wish I had a picture for this story.  It seems I've always got a latest "story" about Jett.  The sweetheart, testimony bearing little boy that he is, is also a definite 2 1/2 year old boy.  A few days ago I was out in the backyard playing with Sky and Jett while Brooke was napping.  I came inside to check on Brooke.  I came in just as she was waking up and because it hadn't been a very long nap, I tried to cuddle her back to sleep.  This meant that I was inside leaving Jett outside by himself for more than two seconds.  (You've got to keep an eye on that kid!)  By the time I got back down to check on him, I looked outside and there he was laying down on his belly with the hose on and running in one hand and making swimming motions with the other.  I in a stearn voice said, "What do you think you're doing?"  In his adorable little voice he said, "I'm swimming."  But of course, that's exactly what it looked like.  He was soaked from head to toe.  I couldn't help but quickly change him into dry clothes and hug him.  He was so sweet and innocent, even though he had just added to my pile of laundry with more wet laundry, I couldn't get mad.  I smiled inside and called to tell Neils the cute story.

Thank you Carin Davis!  Once again, you did an amazing job.  I love the pictures and am so grateful you were able to capture some of the milestones in Brooke's first year.  I am grateful to know you and to have learned from you.  Thanks for everything!!!

Get Smart
We went to "get Smart" from the airport.  Logan/Uncle Logan is home from his mission.  After picking him up we went and saw the movie "Get Smart."  It was fabulous!  
We are so excited to have him back.  This is #2 of many exciting things to happen on the Smart side of the family.  Wendy had her darling baby in May, Logan came home and now it's a baby blessing followed by two weddings.  Lots of summer fun!
Welcome home Logan!
