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!
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!

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.
Hi Everyone! My name is Traci and I have been married to Andy for over 11 years. We have two adorable children Abby and Ruggles, (although they are a bit on the furry side). I love photography and the outdoors, along with reading, movies and the occasional video game. I hope to share a lot with you through this blog....
