Black Tie Event plays The Wall

On Saturday night Bailey's band Black Tie Event had a show at The Wall on BYU campus.

Andy and I made sure to go and support them.

It was a pretty nice little club where you could watch live music and enjoy some food.

They even showed the band up on the screens all around the club.  Pretty cool.

They put on a good show and we were able to hear a few of their new songs.
Hope they can keep up the momentum!

Ferguson Shower

This past Saturday was my first Baby Shower.  It was held for the Ferguson side of the family.

We started out on Chris' patio and played a cute (but frustrating) game where you had to guess what certain baby animals were called.

Aunt Marilyn and me trying to guess:

Others taking a stab at it:

After that game we moved the party inside for some food.  It was getting a little too hot for everyone outside.

The food was some little sandwiches, salads and chips.

Topped off with a yummy dessert of homemade strawberry shortcake provided by Andy:

Then it was time for presents!
Just look at that stack!

Cristy, Kennedy, & Megan came up with a cute present Bingo game for everyone to play while I opened my gifts.

So I dug into all the boxes and bags!

I must say that little Lincoln was spoiled!  We received so much good stuff!  I loved all the handmade blankets that we received and all the cute clothes.  Plus we received lots of other supplies that will help us out immensely!

It was a fun shower and I really enjoyed seeing everyone that came.
I'm so glad that we have such a loving and supportive family!


Fun With Fireworks

Last Friday we got together as a family and had a BBQ.  We figured that since Katie's family was passing through town that it was a good excuse to get together.

Since it was the day after the 24th of July, Chris thought it would be fun to get some fireworks for the kids.

Everyone had a blast lighting them off!

We started simply with some sparklers.

And then moved straight into the big stuff with the aerials.

It was  fun night to be with everyone.  We had a blast!  (no pun intended)

30 Weeks!

Here I sit at 30 weeks.  Yikes!

I cannot believe that there are only 10 more weeks to go!  How scary is that?!?!

On a side note, Lincoln has been very active lately.  He is moving all around and it is one of the weirdest things I have ever experienced.

Nick Waterhouse Concert

On Saturday night Andy and I headed up to Salt Lake to the Urban Lounge for the Nick Waterhouse concert.  Andy really likes this guy and he was lucky enough to win tickets off the radio.  Score!

Andy also ran into a guy he worked at Nestle with who was kind enough to take our picture together.

I have to admit that the opening band was horrendous!  They were a "screamer" band and I really couldn't stand it.  

But then Nick Waterhouse came on stage and everything was good again.  It was a great show in a small venue.  Gotta love that!

Andy and I had a good time at this concert.  I'm glad we were able to get out and go to it!

VW Show 2014

This past Saturday Andy and I were able to stop by the annual VW show.

This year they moved the location to the Shops at the Riverwoods, and changed the time to later in the day.

It was a really hot day, but we still enjoyed checking out all the local VWs.

Andy loves the colors on this one:

I love the camper vans!

And we both LOVE these buses.  Andy was lucky enough to ride around in the blue one on a previous outing.

We both love the style of the classic VWs.  They have so much personality.  Some day we may own one of ourselves!

4th of July Weekend at Tinney Flat

For the Fourth of July weekend Andy and I decided to take a little camping trip up Santaquin Canyon.  We were able to find an open campsite at Tinney Flat Campground.  Since neither one of us had been up Santaquin Canyon before, we weren't sure what to expect, but it ended up being beautiful!

That first afternoon we got our little camper and our campsite all settled.

We then took a little stroll around the campground to scope things out.  It was a really nice campground!

We then headed back to camp to start up a fire and cook our dinner.

After dinner Andy was determined to teach me how to play Chess.  I think I did alright.

Then it was time for S'Mores!  

The next day we decided to spend the morning hiking.  We started with a little jaunt on a trail around the campground.  It was so forest-y there!  We loved it!  We also saw a couple of deer along the way.

Then we headed up the road a bit to another, bigger trail head.  This was the White Pine Hollow Trail.

It was so pretty on this trail!  And we saw so many things!  

Lots of beaver dams for instance.

The creek we hiked along was lovely.

And we had to cross it a few times on the way up.

We also discovered this large cut in the rock wall:

Andy just had to play "Spiderman" and climb up it.

Yes, even the pregnant lady can do the "tough" stuff.

There was also a nice little waterfall along the way:

And of course we had to hike down by one of the ponds.


Traci out in the meadow:

After hiking we returned back to camp for some lunch and relaxation.  It was getting quite hot out, so we knew I wouldn't be up for more hiking.
We decided instead to take a drive further up the canyon and check out the sites.

We came across Santaquin Meadow.  It was so pretty!

And then we got to a point where we could see down into Utah Valley.  We were amazed that it opened up like that!

View of Santaquin Meadow coming back down:

That evening we just relaxed some more and read a lot.  We prepared our dinner and some more S'Mores.  It was wonderful!

Even though Andy and I spent the weekend by ourselves it was still great!  We would have like for more family to be around, but sometimes that just doesn't work out.  

I love holidays!
