The twins!

During the middle of August we were lucky enough to have these two little cuties come and spend a few days with us!
Dad had  to work and mom had girls camp so off to Aunt Heidi and Uncle Dillon's it was.  And we had SO much fun!!  We filled our time with sidewalk chalk...
 Picnics at the park...
 Catching and playing with minnows...
 Making pizza....
 Eating ice cream cones...

Wrestling....
 Playing at the splash park...
 Eating cotton candy....

And of course visiting and playing at Dillon's work after hours.

I'm so glad that my sister's trust me enough to let their kids come and stay and play with us :)
I was so sad when it was time for these kiddos to go home and can't wait for another sleepover!

Pound the Pavement for Parenthood

The weekend of August 3rd Dillon and I made the trek to Orem Utah to run in the Pound the Pavement for Parenthood 5k (that I talked about here).  It was amazing to see how many people came out in the dead heat to run for such an amazing cause.  We did not win the free IVF raffle but felt so blessed to have so many people sign up in our behalf and to have so many come and run with us!
 Family...
...and friends!
And now I have to take a min to brag to all of you about how amazing of a best friend I have.  This girl is great!  She has seen me at my worst, and at my best and still loves me (I think ;).  She has proven to me many a times that she will do anything for me and goes above and beyond to cheer me up when I'm down or having a bad day.  It doesn't matter that we live 300 miles apart, she will send me a simple yet heart felt text, set up a Skype date with me, or randomly send me a package.  I have no doubt in my mind that if it came down to it she would give me the shirt off her back if I needed it.  She is seriously the best and I don't know what I would do without her support and love, especially over the past 4.5 years of this emotionally draining fertility journey.  I love you Shay!

5 years

On July 25th Dillon and I celebrated 5 years of wedded bliss.
 I know it is cliche, but I cannot believe that we have already been married for 5 years.  Time has flown by!  We have had our share of fun and our share of troubles but I seriously feel so blessed to have this man to share it all with.  He is simply amazing.  

To celebrate we really didn't do much since we had been out of town so much and just took the evening to eat our weight in pizza at Pizza Pie Cafe then headed to the movies.  A full price movie at that, possibly the first time our whole marriage that we actually paid full price for a movie.

Happy Anniversary Dillon 
Love you to the moon and back!
