The boring parts

"It's the boring parts I remember best"-Up

I hope that when we get to heaven, God has a photo album of those moments in our lives that we couldn't capture ourselves. The things that are too simple and too seemingly boring to document. Those tender moments that really make up the substance of our lives. I had this thought as I was resting my head on Cole's chest yesterday. He was reading my favorite book, Gilead, and I was just completely happy. I hope that one goes in my album.

Rainy day thoughts

"Tut-tut, it looks like rain"-Winnie the Pooh

It's raining, but not only that, it's thunderstorming! I love thunderstorms. It reminds me of back east, playing in the rain with my friends and watching our chalk drawings wash away down the sidewalk. 

This is my Dad. Isn't he cute? I love him very much. Because of him I love to read and tell stories. Because of him, I've gotten to see the world. Because of him I know what it means to spend time with and love your family. It was his birthday yesterday. Happy Birthday, Dad!

Today Cole and I went to watch his family run the Utah Valley 5K. Cole's little brother, Porter, took 3rd place in his division!

Cole and I went to see Up last night. I bawled like a little girl in the first five minutes. Just a warning. 

I made a banana cream pie the other night. I was pretty proud of it.

The End.
