Before we saw the swamp we looked at all the reptiles they had on display they were really creepy. Erik loved this snake and turtle. I was extremely creeped out by the snake because it kept looking at Erik as food.

This swamp is really close to were we live. It was really fun to explore and be inside a real swamp. I am glad that there were no aligators or snakes on our path though. Seeing them in cages is enough for me. We had so much fun at this swamp. It was creepy beautiful.

The other night we decided that we wanted to start having our family scripture study during dinner. It has been working really well. As I was reading from the Book of Mormon, Erik folded his arms and started to say a prayer. I stopped reading and we quickly folded our arms. As Erik prayed he had a big smile on his face. We could tell that he was really happy with himself for saying the prayer. That was his first prayer and it was so perfect I loved every second of it. I don't exactly know all that was said but it was perfect. Isn't this picture so cute? I love this little boy so much.

I love These Pictures!

These photographs were taken by our friends Lindsay and Chad about a year ago and I just saw them on disc the other day and had to share them with you. There were so many great ones to choose from so here are a few of my favorites.

We will have new family pictures taken next month that I will share with all of you.

I am really excited about the movie so here are some previews to watch if your interested.

Erik is such a big helper

Yesturday Erik decided all on his own that he was going to help Laney eat by holding her bottle. It was really cute. He loves helping me take care of her. This morning I asked him to hand me one of Laney's diapers and he did. He is such a big help around the house now I'm loving it.

Another Friday Adventure!!

Last friday we went to the LSU campus and saw Mike the tiger. I think it is pretty cool that they have a real tiger hanging out at the school. It was really fun. I really like friday's.

Friday Family Fun Day!


Every Friday is our family adventure day so we try and get out and explore our new home. A few weeks ago Spencer took us to New Orleans because even though I've lived here before I had never been to the French Quarter. It was so wonderful and beautiful. The French Quarter is one of my new favorite places on the planet. The Buildings are beautiful, the food is incredable, and the music playing on the street was really fun.
We had a blast.

I am eating a Beignet at Cafe du Monde. They are so amazing. We were covered in powdered sugar once we finished.

This street was really cool because it had all the art gallery's. I loved it.

These musicians were playing there music right in front of the cafe we were eating lunch at so we were dancing as we ate. Erik really loved the music.

I Told You I Would Get Caught Up!!

Laney is such a joy to be around. I love being a mother of two. They are so amazing and I feel so blessed to have them.

I pulled out my camera to take some pictures and then she totally started smiling so I took about a million shots in 5 min. I couldn't help myself. Good thing we are using a digital camera these days because I would be spending alot of money on film thats for sure.

Laney is two months old today. These pictures were taken a few days ago.

Erik loves to kiss her and hug her. She really likes him. She was smiling at him the other day and he loved that.

She has alot of hair. I love it. It gets alittle wild sometimes.

So I am still in the process of getting our blog updated but these pictures are the most resent pictures we have taken of Laney so I hope you've enjoyed them.
