What a Great June!

The Princess Party! Every year my mom has a princess party for her grand girls. This year I helped out with it. It was a lot of fun dressing up with my nieces and doing girly things together. We don't look very princess like in this picture, just being silly.

Cars party with my nephews

Kory and I decided to go camping on a whim (which we haven't been able to do for the past four summers.) We packed up and headed up A.F. canyon. Our friends Chelsea, Zak, Michelle, and Christian came up and roasted a hot dog and marshmallows with us. We had quite the adventure finding a spot. It was so busy up the canyon to say the least...

Just cookin' our breakfast.

My friend Chelsea and I decided to take a basic cake decorating class together. There were 4 classes, one every Monday night. We had a lot of fun taking these classes together and learned a thing or two about decorating cakes.

These cupcakes turned out a little crazy, but we learned how to use a lot of different icing tips in the process.

The only downfall when making and decorating cakes, is how messy the kitchen gets by the time you're finished! It's hard to see what a huge disaster my kitchen is, but there is powdered sugar everywhere!

We learned how to make these ribbon roses....they turned out pretty good considering it was our very first time making them.

We decided to put pudding between our cake's always fun to try something different.

I made some brownies for my niece's baptism and thought I would jazz them up a bit with some flowers I learned how to make from my class.

Happy Birthday! Jen and I had a birthday BBQ in my backyard with some of our good friends. It was a lot of fun catching up and enjoying the nice weather together.

I thought I would try out my cake skills for my party. I did like how the little fireworks turned out...we really lit the sparklers that were coming out of the fondant covered twinkies.

Every year the poppies bloom in the foothills of Alpine in a place called Lambart Park. I look forward to seeing them every year in June.

What a pretty place

We had our engagement pictures taken here...almost 5 years ago.


We took a little trip down to St. George with our friends Michelle and Christian. We had a lot of fun. We even went on a little hike.
