The Biggest Loser is a Loser!!!


I LOVE watching the biggest loser. It has good info and is inspirational to one who could afford a healthier life. After watching the latest episode and succumbed to advertising, I went to sign up with the biggest loser club only to find that they don't except people with Type I diabetes!!! RUDE!!! It was pretty cheap and I was excited to get a daily menu to start using, but alas my dumb pancreas does it again. I exercise on my own but don't feel like I am getting the most out of it because I feel like don't know what I'm doing. So dumb!!!!! ( I, of course will continue watching The Biggest Loser)

Random Fun

Gav and Liv were over the other afternoon so we made cupcakes with green food coloring and black and orange sprinkles.


Emmy and I had little photo shoot. Emmy loves to pose for the camera.
This girl LOVES her baby! I will find pools of whatever Emmy was drinking all over the floor because she wanted to, " share with baby." She also puts her to bed several times a day.
The following story is a result of this swollen, numb knee. Riley was scheduled for surgery. He went in had the "block" for his knee, had all the loopy meds and they were about to "put him under" when the nurse comes out to tell me, " We have a little problem." ( you NEVER tell that to a women who is waiting for her husband to come out of surgery and who's husband had just called you back to pre-op to make sure I knew where all of the Life Insurance information was. Granted he was under heavy meds at that point) Apparently, his doc was at the hosp in the middle of a surgery and passed out. We later found out he had the flu pretty bad. He had a very short, successful surgery the following week. All is well.

Nap Time


This is, apparently , what Emmy thinks nap time is all about.She took all of her animals, diapers and blankets off of her changing table and somehow climbed right up. When I walked in she said, " Hi, Mom. Look at me!" How can I get mad at that face?

Summertime!!! The livin' is easy...

I always liked to drink hose water in the summer. Emmy does too.
Reading her alphabet book on the potty
She LOVES feeding the goats and tries to mimic what they are "saying".
The petting zoo at the fair.
The llama at the zoo with Boise City picnic
I love Sunday's but we have 1:30 church and Emmy never gets a nap.
She loves her Daddy!
We had a photo shoot on the stair case

Emmy loves animals and especially loves going to the zoo.

Four Years!!!




I could quote the hundreds of love songs I know or make a list of all of the reasons I love Riley. Honestly, I have thought about doing that. But my brain gets overwhelmed. A few nights ago Riley and I "stayed up way past mid-night" and had some great pillow talk. When I complain about money, school, callings he is asking me how he can be a better husband, dad, brother-in-law, scout leader. I could go on with situations like these forever but I need to get me zucchini bread out of the oven so I will say this. I can't believe I am married to the most amazing man I have ever met. A man though nearly terrified of singing will belt Aida at the top of his lungs because I love it, ( he's really not half bad). A guy who will do anything for anyone. Even if it's someone who is addicted to meth, alcohol, or is a schizophrenic and threatening to kill him. He is amazing and someday I will write a book about all the amazing things that make him so amazing. So to my dearest husband pf 4 fabulous years. I love you!!!

The Coast

Emmy LOVES the Care Bears!!!
Digging for pirates booty on the beach
Uncle Mark and his mates on the treasure hunt
Part of the Spjute family lined up on the beach

What a hot moose!
Wish I would have bought one of those hats
We rode a fun little train in Cannon Beach
Gavin the elephant
Riley put his phone number on that
Wayne in the Goonie jail, looking quilty
Mom and Heidi in front of the Goonie house
Liv braved the frigged waters with her wet suit and boogy board
Gav and Liv on the Anchor in Astoria
Playin' in the sand
Love that little face!
Hangin' with Grandpa and Heidi watching the waves
Emmy loved to throw rocks in the ocean
Headed up to the Goonie House

We had a great time at the beach, though we could have used another 5 days there. Many trips to the Tillamook cheese factory and lots of trips to the beach. I want to go back. Every time I am can't help but think about Linz and the time we went out on the beach in the middle of the night to talk about our latest crushes and then would see things walking out of the ocean at us.

New BYU-I center...AMAZING!

videoHere's the new center they just built. It look just like the conference center but I heard holds a couple thousand less, still it is a site!

George and Jenna

Sherstine and I took a crazy fast trip to Rexburg last Saturday. Heidi sang in a concert wit George Dyer. Our family is his biggest fan and a few years ago Heidi, Jake, Aunt Lisa and I took a similar road trip to see him in concert. He is MARVELOUS! Sherstine was able ( and willing) to touch George's bicept in the picture of the four of us. She can't stop talking about it. Ask her... Heidi's choir unbelievable!!! BYU-I choirs are GREAT!!! I think they men's choir exceed's that of BYU's... no joke. It was a fun trip and we can't wait to see Heidi this week to go to the coast. We really wished Kaylene could have come as well but understand that she was big with child.
Jenna Lilly Waite was born July 11. She is SO cute and SO tiny. She has super dark hair and everyone agrees she look just like Lucy did. She has a bit of chub on her legs and really long toes. She is so adorable and will make even the most nonbaby person, baby hungry. We all love her and wish she could come play in the ocean next week.
