sweet avery...

A dear friend of mine just had her baby girl! We had a really nice day together taking pictures, having lunch and watching the HAIL STORM that happened right after we left the field where we took some pictures! Wow! I am grateful for wonderful friends!

Grace...

This gorgeous girl is getting ready to be baptized! I am excited for her! Her mom is a very good friend of mine! This was one of the most beautiful days! And this park was a beautiful park that we had just discovered! And I am IN LOVE with her dress! I have to love other little girls' dresses since I have all boys!!! We talked about how we can't believe how fast our kids are growing up! Wow!

Mamma Mia...here we go again...

I got to see Mamma Mia for the first time last weekend with my good friend Amy! It was AMAZING!!! Of course! It was kindof like going to a rock concert! An awesome ABBA rock concert! I LOVED it! Of course I took pictures! Can't wait for Wicked to come back!

Alex gets a hair cut...sniff...sniff...

I have been whining about this for a while now. I did NOT want him to get his hair cut! It is SO much a part of who he is and what is darling about him! But my very wise husband kept saying that his hair was getting yucky and needed a good trim to be healthy. We are clueless...well, about a lot of things...but very much in how to take care of this little guy's hair! So my very good, kind, angel friend Kathy...I love you girl...helped me find a salon that specializes in cutting "little black baby hair". I was SO nervous because I wanted someone that was kind and gentle, that would be really nice to a "white girl" adopting a "black baby", and that I could talk to about how to take care of his hair! Well, we found a fabulous place! I am totally going to recommend this salon to EVERYONE! It is called Baraka Salon in Taylorsville, Utah. This sweet, GORGEOUS girl named Samar helped us out and hooked us up! I asked her every stupid, ridiculous question I could ask. She was so sweet to answer every question. She was SO gentle with my little Alex. He cried a LOT! She gave him hugs and suckers. She made our experience so great AND she didn't charge me a lot! She said to make sure to come and see her again! Oh...we WILL!!!

Before...get a good look...



Get ready...

here comes the sun...

...and I say it's alright...I LOVE this song. So excited to see the sun! I have been working on sort of a project the last couple of months. It has stretched me at lot and it has been really good for me and a lot of fun! In the next couple of months I will have LOTS of pictures to share. This is just one picture I shot recently in between the pouring rain! This spot was SOOOO gorgeous! Here's to a sunny, warm, beautiful week!
