Clint had off work this past Monday, so we started the day off with a hike in the back bay of Newport Beach. It was so great to be out in nature. Clint and I love hiking and hope to make it a weekly family event. If anyone knows any good hikes in orange county, let us know, they can't be too hard since we have our little one. After the hike, we tried out El Matador mexican food in Newport, it was tasty, and then headed off to the Irvine pool. It was such a fun Monday, I wish Clint had every Monday off.

Cousin Love



I was able to meet up with my cousins, Nicole and Chelsea for lunch today. I am so glad that we are all in So-cal right now! Paiton loved her sweet cousins. Thanks to my awesome hubby who came along so that I could talk and eat!
Ona side note, I think Paiton will be getting a tooth any day now, she is drooling more and is super cranky.

Paiton and Rusty

This past week Paiton and I went to visit her great grandma Betty and her dog Rusty. Paiton is obsessed with dogs and she was so excited to play with a dog that was at her level, she is so used to the huge golden retrievers, so it was so fun to watch her crawl after little Rusty. I am posting a video, excuse my annoying voice. Hope eveyone is having a great summer.

Fun with the Reynolds




Yesterday we went over to our good friends the Reynolds house for a game day. We played the wii resort games, learned a new card game, and played some old favorites. Paiton loved watching daddy play the wii. the Reynolds made us a yummy dinner and were great hosts. We also loved meeting Josh's parents. Thanks for a fun Saturday Reynolds family.

So, Paiton has been crawling for about three weeks now and she is into everything! She especially enjoys cords. We just started the process of baby proofing our apartment. I thought these pics were cute of Paiton. Don't you love how she is eating the bumper for the bookshelf, she mocks babyproofing.

This past weekend we headed out to St. Louis Missouri for Tyler and Patty's sealing. Paiton did great on the long flights and slept most of the time, she is a great traveler. The sealing was beautiful and we loved being with our family in the temple. We had a great time with all the Seaders/Suters/Swarts/Arroyoa families. The reception was a blast we all danced are booties off. We feel so blessed to have such great families and to have had this opportunity to see everyone. We are so happy for Tyler and Patricia and know they will have a wonderful marriage. Hope you like the pics.
