Photoshoot with Gramps








At a combined birthday party for Grandpa and Jackie, we got pictures of Grandpa with all of his grandkids (although at least one more is on its way). I appreciated my cousin, Scott, and his wife, Maggie, coming over for the photoshoot, despite the fact their house had flooded earlier in the week and they were revamping. Scott is one of my closest cousins, although it seems like we see each other less and less as the years go forward, and so I thought it really fun that we both had our first child -- a girl -- within three months of each other. As you can see Scott's in love with his little girl.

My sister, Christie, made my wedding cake -- all five layers of it. It was fondant, covered in fresh red roses and green ribbon. For a more modern look she chose to make a square cake.

OK, here's the truth, what Renn and I really look like when we wake up. After our first backpacking trip as a couple, Renn's hair looked like grass growing on his head and mine lay flat and matted as we walked out of the mountains.

This is us on our last day at the Hummingbird Inn in Maneadero, Mexico. It was a fun week of service with Engineers Without Borders. Renn and other USU engineering students helped put in drain fields at an orphanage, The Gabriel House, for children with severe disabilities. I helped dig some holes and wrote an article for the newspaper about the experience.
