Oakland Zoo and Temple Visit

A couple of weeks ago we headed to the Oakland Zoo on our day off! It was so much fun. I must admit that I was more excited for Bristol to be there, but who would have known that she would have slept the whole time? :) We saw some of my favorite things though! The monkeys, and giraffes. So fun!

Following our trip to the Oakland Zoo, we decided to drive a few more minutes to the Oakland Temple grounds and look around. I had no idea how beautiful the grounds were! It was such a great experience to be there as a whole little family!

Disney Land

So, this last week Kate, Bristol and I headed to southern California to visit my family at Disney Land. The six hour drive went really well considering having a baby on board! We spent two full days at Disney Land, and boy did it wear me out! However, it was quite monumental as it was Bristol's first trip!

Happy 1st Father's Day Ty! Today was great! We woke up and opened some presents, and then I made Ty some strawberry crepes for breakfast. It was a great morning! Ty is such a great daddy to Bristol. There aren't too many things more beautiful then a dad fully in love with his little girl. So precious! Thanks Ty for being such a great dad!

Bristol Lovin

I have been gettin some Bristol lovin lately! Yes, that is a hickey on my neck, and no it is not from Ty. (His are much bigger, much darker, and always hidden with makeup...) Bristol has been sucking on ANYTHING and EVERYTHING lately, and the other day she was so mad that when she finally calmed down and sucked on my neck, I just let her have at it. Little did I know that I would get a mark! I have another one on my arm too! HA! It is so funny! It's ok though, I love her love marks.

P.S. It was a little bigger and brighter, but this shot is a couple of days after the event.

Bristol is so fun these days! She is getting really good at holding her head up and standing. She can pull herself up from a sitting position to a standing position just by holding on to my fingers. She is doing so good! And best yet, she is getting even more smiley! I love it!

*Note on the outfit. My Auntie Laurie bought this for her that says "I love my Auntie." It is so stinkin cute!

Ashley in INDIA!

Last year my sister Ashley spent just over a month or so in India volunteering at the Rising Star Outreach school for children. She loved it so much that she was promoted to volunteer there again this summer for three months! Although I miss her terribly, I know that she is doing amazing service. The children at the school stay there for nine whole months, and for the remaining three stay with their families in the leprosy colonies. Ashley is in charge of training tutors to help the children with their English, and is also in charge of nightly dinners for the volunteers. Her e-mail is quite slow there, but I recieve an e-mail about once a week from her. She is having an amazing experience! She stays extremely busy, showers with frogs, melts in the heat, and running from monkeys and snakes. She quite likes the excitement! These are not pictures that she has taken, but some for the Rising Star Outreach website. (I know, I probably shouldn't use them....but I love them!)

Sunday Dresses

So, Ty took this picture from his phone, so it won't upload any bigger, but isn't she so cute! I love dressing her up, especially on Sunday's when she can be in a dress! And for some reasons she is the best behaved out of the whole week on Sundays. Try and explain that!

So, I still consider myself a blogging idiot! I can't figure a few things out. If anyone can help me out, I would surely appreciate it!
#1. I hate that poop brown background color. If anyone knows how to change it, let me knwo!
#2. A ton of people have those really fun picture collages where there is more than one picture, some different sizes, all clumped together. I would love to know how to do that!
#3. I was trying to post a new picture under the title at the top, but it won't let me post a big one, just a teeny one. I don't get it!

So, if any of you excellent bloggers could help me out it would be awesome!
