The Great Sand Dunes (Photo Dump)

Last week I went to The Great Sand Dunes with my family for a few days. It was nice to get out of town and to have something to do while Chase is on tour.

The first night we stayed at a campground in Gunnison, CO. It was by FAR the best camp ground I've been too. They had paddle boats, fishing, alpacas, sheep, horses, a play ground, a pond to feed fish, a huge deck that overlooked the pond, and of course really pretty views. Because it Gunnison and Gunnison is beautiful!

The next three days we went a few hours away to the sand dunes. It was pretty amazing. If you're ever in the area I highly recommend it! I've been there before, but I was about 5, so I didn't quite remember how amazing and huge they are!

Unfortunately, I get too lazy to bring my good camera everywhere. So most of these are just from my phone, but as least I got pictures...

The Un-perfect Is What Makes Life Perfect

So many things have been happening these past few months and I could be kicking myself for not documenting them or taking more pictures and REALLY not keeping up on my blogging. But sometimes I think it's ok to just sit back and enjoy what's actually happening around you.

Just some deep thoughts at 1:30 in the morning...
I really haven't been he best wife, daughter, sister, cousin, aunt, grand daughter, or friend. This is what I'm really trying to work on.
They're what matter most to me in the end.
Even though selfishness or laziness get in the way far too often. it's really all that matters.
The people around you.
I have to be the best I can. For them. Or at least try.

I'm far from perfect and my life is far from perfect. But sometimes all we can do is try our best and know that everything is gonna be ok. Life isn't gonna end up how we plan anyway.

Stop worrying about failure.
Stop wishing things were different.

Enjoy your life and be happy. With the good and the bad.
And LOVE the people you meet along the way.

Emery Ann

This is my new niece Emery. Born on March 8th. She is just the cutest little thing and she's literally the most quiet baby I've ever met. I have yet to hear her cry. She's just so content and relaxed all the time. It's really nice to have another little baby here to pass around during family get togethers. It feels like it's been forever. Also, her middle name is the same as mine! I couldn't stop smiling when I found that out :)

All I have to say is, all my sibling make some mighty cute baby's!!!


Henry Ryan

This little cutie is my new nephew Henry :) He was born on January 24th (and I'm just now getting around to posting this...) I haven't been able to see him in person yet cause he's up in Washington state, but my parents got to go see him for two weeks! I'm just a little jealous.... He sounds perfect though! And I can't believe how stinkin' identical he looks to my brother! I can't wait to meet this little guy. Hopefully he doesn't grow up too much by the time I get to hold him...

He's already gotten so big...

This dude's eight today! I can't believe how fast he's growing up... He's gonna be a teenager before I know it. But I really am proud of him. He's such an awesome nephew and he's turned in to such a great big brother! Happy Birthday Zayah!

LaRae threw a camping themed birthday for him yesterday that turned out so cute! She throws awesome parties even when she had a baby just a few days before... (I"ll have pictures of my new niece up VERY soon!)
