Happy 4th birthday to my sweet little Addison! I cannot believe how grown up she is getting. She is such a good girl (most of the time) and a pleasure to be around. She is so smart, cuddly, and loving. She loves to dance, sing, play barbies, dress up, and watch her favorite Mickey Mouse episodes. She loves to count and is learning how to write and recognize letters and sounds of the alphabet. I am so proud to be her Mom!

Here I am again catching up from all our activities I haven't posted over the summer. We have been so busy it seems!
We started off by going to a mini Taylor family reunion at Grandma's ranch in Mackay. We fished, 4-wheeled, played in the dirt, and the kids had lots of fun with their cousins. We also drove through the mine tour on our way home, which was really neat.
This picture is of Matt standing at the entrance of an old mining tunnel. It was the coolest thing I have ever seen! The air coming out of it was so cold that there was still snow in the tunnel!
On the weekend of the 24th, we stuck to the tradition of going up to the Pioneer Day festivities where the kids had their faces painted.
Then on Sunday, we went up to Idaho Falls and met up with Matt's sister Ashlee and her family to watch the Blue Angels perform.
the ride home...
Our next adventure was to hit Salt Lake for our last free weekend before Matt started teaching again. We took our time and took some pictures in temple square, went to Hogle Zoo, and to a new awesome waterpark called Cowabunga Bay.
Wow. That only took me 3 hours. I hope you made it through all those. Oh, and one more bit of news ... WE SOLD OUR HOUSE!!!!! We're still waiting on the home inspection, but we plan to close on September 30th. It's kind of bittersweet. We love this home and have so many memories here but are excited to have our new one!
Well, that's it for now (I think). I'll try my best to keep up on blogging!! Really!
Matt and I(Emily) have been married for 6 years now and we have 2 beautiful children. Addison is 2 and we can't believe it. She is full of energy and is a great big sister to her new baby brother, Jackson. Jackson was born on March 10 and it has been so fun to have him join our family. We love living in our home in Chubbuck with our Old English Sheepdog, Ben and our crazy cat, Nala. Matt is now teaching high school biology and physical science at Pocatello High and I am a registered nurse in the nursery at the local hospital. We have wonderful family and friends and are so blessed!
