I've been thinking about the pioneers

We spent a weekend in Nauvoo which included a few and far between temple trip for Austin and I. I feel an intense eternal perspective when I ponder the sacrifices of the early saints. Austin will tell you that whenever I have a deep query, a shift in perspective, or something I feel is profound to speak about I usually begin the conversation with, "So, I've been thinking about the pioneers..." We had a great time with our friends the Spackmans and the Brandons learning and touring as much as possible (which isn't much) over our two day stay as we juggled toddlers and babies. It was fun. The pioneers had toddlers and babies to juggle too except they weren't just getting demos from the missionaries, they were actually making ropes, wagon wheels, bricks, tinware, food, and pretty much an entire city. Oh how I love their legacy!

This Summer in Wisconsin....

The Yearly Epicnic
This is an event we always look forward to; the Epicnic has tons of family fun exhibits and activities, as well as a killer BBQ


Chase spent a good chunk of time trying to get the pigs to eat the straw at the petting zoo tent.

Here is to Eva almost 3months old! Love her!

Our second attempt at gardening

If you live in Wisconsin and you completely neglect your garden for two and a half weeks, no weeding or watering, this is what happens! The zucchinis begin to walk and talk and rule the universe!
