4th of July, etc.

Well I went back to work last week and it was super hard. I cried the first day that I had to leave Ty, but at least my mom was watching him that day so I knew he was well cared for. Otherwise I'm not sure I could have done it. I know I missed him more than he missed me...my mom said he was a wonderful baby (as always). So I survived my first week back and then Friday morning we went up to my parent's house in Snowflake to celebrate the 4th of July. It was a busy house with the 3 of us, my parents, Em and Missy's family (3 rambunctious kids). Friday we just hung out at the house. Brandon, Ty and I all fell asleep together on the bed for an afternoon nap...LOVE naps! That night we ate dinner outside on the picnic table (actually we ate all of our meals there), went for a walk in the cool weather, made smores in the backyard and watched a movie.On Saturday we slept in. Brandon and I took a bike ride and when we got back this is what we found... Emily is always being smothered by children it seems. The Carpenter family

That afternoon the girls did a little outing to my fave chabby chic store "The White Chair" and then to the Dollar Store to get me some socks since I left those at home along with my PJs. Oops...I was too worried about what the baby needed that I forgot what I needed. :) Then my favorite part was going to the rodeo that night with fireworks to follow. Being a city girl, I love the rodeo because it is a novelty to me I guess. Ty was quite the trouper and made it through the whole thing.
I'm such a dork...but I think it's funny to wear a cowboy hat because it is so NOT me. Well we had most of Sunday up there as well and enjoyed being outside a lot with cool breezes since we are stuck inside most of the summer at home. The next picture is from Father's Day. Brandon is such a fabulous father (I know, no surprise for those who know him). Ty is a lucky little boy.

He loves sitting up now (with help of course) because he wants to be involved in what is going on. He loves to talk when he is spoken to as well. We just love him to pieces!

Looks like you had a great weekend. Ty is so adorable in all of his chubby goodness. :) I'm coming to AZ the beginning of Aug for about 2 weeks so lets get together!

I would like to point out Corinne covering her ears in that picture from the rodeo. Who knew she would freak out! It appears that she too is a city girl.

Isn't going back to work hard!? I cried the whole way to work the first day I had to go back. Then, quick dry my tears before my students came into my classroom. I feel your pain! Looks like you guys had a great 4th of July!

I just want to squeeze him! You guys all look so good. I miss you Britt. I hope work is going well. I can't remember where you work? I just started a job as a dental hygienist. I work for a dentist in my ward. His wife graduated from the same DH program a few years before me. They are super nice. It's always so scary starting a new job, but I think I will be okay. Just takes time getting used to everything and feeling comfortable. I am glad I can keep up with you guys on your blog! I'll let you know if I ever make one.
