What a Summer so far

I can't believe it's been over a month since I last posted. This summer is flying by, and we are enjoying every minute of it! It has been a crazy 2 months, but so much fun! Right before my Birthday in June my sister in law got married in the Salt Lake Temple. Her wedding was absolutely beautiful, and it was so great to be able to share in her special day. Dave and I had never been to the Salt Lake City temple, and I was in awe at it's beauty. I know Nicole must have felt like a Princess getting married in her castle. She was absolutely beautiful, and we are so happy to have her sweet hubby Jeffy as our brother. They dated for over a year, and we were anticipating there marriage for so long! We just love Jeff so much, and I'm so glad that Nic married him, so now he can't leave our crazy family. He's stuck! ;)My Birthday was so much fun! My little nephew got blessed into our church, (it's like a christening in the catholic church) and we spent the day celebrating him. His Dad did an amazing job at his blessing, and I was so happy to see our little Brax have that incredible experience. We had a fun luncheon with the whole family (minus Nic and Jeff who were on their Honeymoon) and then everyone headed back to our house for my Birthday.
We had cinnamon rolls, cake, ice cream, and opened presents with Dave's family on my Birthday night and we just had a blast.Dave's sister Bonnie was in town for Nicole's wedding and she had brought her new little baby boy Benson. I had the best week ever with him! I think I stole him from her every morning and night. I would take him every morning to wake up Uncle Dave and I would take him every night to sleep with me for a little bit. I just couldn't get enough of him. She flew back home on my Birthday, but at least we got to have cake and ice cream before they left.For the rest of the month of June it was mainly just regular summer stuff. My sweet niece Maddison came into town and I got to spend a couple of days with her. My Mom and Maddie, and I all got to go swimming one day which was so much fun. We got to spend the 4th of July with my family and Maddie before she left as well. She was here for 3 weeks, and I absolutely loved seeing her. I think she was more excited to see Uncle Dave, then Aunt Jilly though. Uncle Dave only got to spend 1 day with her because he has had a very busy school semester. He's doing awesome and has straight A's though, so I know she understood.
I miss my cute hubby who's at school a lot, but I make sure to keep busy. I love weeding the yard all the time to make sure it stays beautiful, I weed our garden, and I sit outside on my lawn chair for a few hours every day and read. I am enjoying every minute of sunshine that we get. It seemed like it was such a long winter, that my body was starved for sunlight. I love just laying outside and soaking it up.Dave and I have a few more summer plans, that I will make sure to write all about. We have a camping trip to go on, a little adventure to Park City, and a whole lot of grilling with Dave's amazing veggie's he is growing in our garden. I'm just so proud of my awesome husband and how hard he works. He has become quite the little gardener (even if we broke our windshield getting started). His garden is so green and big, and beautiful. I use the fresh basil, oregano, and parsley, to cook with all the time. I can't wait to use all the fresh veggies when they come in!!
I hope you all have an amazing, fun, and safe, rest of the summer. I will make sure to post about all our adventures later on. Thanks for stopping by our blog! We love you all tons!
