Esme and her Nana and Papa

As our time at my mother and father's draws to a close, Esme and I are finding that our emotions are on both ends of the spectrum.  On the one hand we are super excited to start the next part of our lives but we are also very sad to be leaving.  We have had a wonderful time here and we are more grateful to my parents than they will ever know.

4th of July!

We had a wonderful and busy 4th this year.  We started the day with a trip to the Hyrum chuck wagon breakfast and parade. It was a lot of fun and a little strange to watch my daughter run around and grab candy in the exact same spot that I used to run around and grab candy...we then hit the lake with the Jepsen's, not pictured here, which is a tragedy because it was Esme's first time on a boat and she loved it!  She kept saying, Grandpa...go faster!  Then we had a nice dinner at the golf course where Esme got a lovely little lady bug face paint and she tried out the hula hoop!

It was a very fun day!

Our Little Impressionist Painter

Esme has become quite the artist.  She loves to go outside on these summer days and let nature inspire her. You will notice at the end of the video she has transitioned to a chair because she thinks the ants that walk around out there are going to get her :)
