camping attempt and a baby blessing

we went camping on friday night in aspen grove... or should i say attempted to go camping. apparently since the last time we went camping emery has become more aware or foreign surroundings and more unwilling to have her mobility bound than i'd realized. she went to bed okay... with me sitting there helping her. about an hour later, aaron and i were enjoying just laying under the stars, drinking hot chocolate, talking and reading when we heard em crying in the tent. she was not to be consoled. she was cold, but wouldn't stay under the blankets (she's a wild sleeper - all over her crib) and was clearly alarmed by waking up in the tent instead of in our room. needless to say we bailed out of there at 9:30. haha. we were sad that we couldn't finish our night in the mountains, but we'd do anything for our little critter. she's so worth it! :) and regardless, it was so nice to get up into the mountains!


discovering leaves (and no, that's not our RV - we do tents)


cute grumpy face


love that face

on a happier note, we got to spend lots of time with Aaron's family yesterday because our nephew, Railay, was blessed. he is a seriously cute little dude! we were posing he and emery for pictures, so there is a cute one below. oh - and we became an aunt and uncle AGAIN yesterday! welcome Hailey Belle! we can't wait to meet you!

Cute pictures! Sorry the camping didn't go as planned. Kids...they make life interesting and oh so fun! Hey we are coming to Provo next week and we wanna see you guys. Adam has to come for the career fair to recruit, so we decided to make a family trip out of it. I hope you can see you guys and your little one.

Poor little Em so confused in the tent. She's so cute. I bet she wouldn't have woken up crying if she was sleeping next to Russ Russ.
