Joys of getting a 2 yr old to pose

It is always a challenge to get kids to give the perfect smile in a picture. I had to bribe Nya today to even sit down and take a picture with me. She gave it a good effort. At first we couldn't get her to smile.
Then she smiled too hard and her eyes were all squinted! She sure has saying "cheese" down.
Finally, a very cute natural smile. I love being with Nya and I really love it when she looks at me with her big blue eye's and says "I love you Auntie"

It's a GIRL!!!

I am so happy to welcome my newest niece. Congrats to George and Amy! Her name is Juliette and she was born this morning at 12:06. She was 6 lbs 14 oz and 19.5 inches long. Check out George and Amy's blog for adorable pics!

Has it really been a month?

I can't believe it has been an entire month since I made a post on my blog. I have been really busy and just finished a long work day. So I am going to have to keep this short... I worked both my jobs today so I have been gone from 5:30 a.m. - 10:00 p.m. I have to get up at 4:30 a.m. tomorrow for work and why I am sitting here typing away is crazy, but no surprise to anyone who knows me. I seem to always burn the candle at both ends. And yet I wonder why I come down with migraine's. Anyway, Rebekah, Nya, and I went hiking up Little Cottonwood Canyon last night. We had a great time and Nya just loved every minute of it.
Nya ran most of the way and after a while she got tired so Rebekah and I switched off carrying her on our back. It didn't take Nya long to get her energy back and she was off running again.

This bridge overlooks the river. This is the cutest little pose that Nya did. She is so funny and likes to "goof around" when having her picture taken. She thought she was being funny here but really it turned out to be one of the cutest pictures of her. Notice has she has her little legs crossed at her feet. So dainty!
This is a picture of the river from standing on the bridge. It is beautiful.

I love living so close to the mountains and I love being able to enjoy all the beauty that they have to offer. It is even better when I get to share it with someone. So often I go hiking by myself and see so many beautiful places that I always wish someone was with me to enjoy it. I am glad Rebekah and Nya got to come along on this hike with me.
