Sheryll Lynne Photography

We had professional pictures taken by our friend Sheryll on our anniversary while we were in Salt Lake. We LOVE them! She did a great job and we can't wait to visit her again when Brandon and Mason are with us!

One year Anniversary (1 down eternity to go!)

Well as most of you know we hit our 1 year anniversary and I wanted everyone to know how much I love My Michelle! She is truly wonderful, seldom complains, and is probably the only one that can quickly put me in place. I truly appreciate her easy going attitude and want everyone to know how much she has blessed my life. Here is a list of a few attributes of why I love My Michelle:

1) Her beautiful Smile
2) Her funny comments "Are you picking up what I'm putting down?"
3) Her Loyalty
4) The way she drives me crazy
5) How much she loves My Dog!
6) She is a great teacher (Thanks for the help with the boys and their homework)
7) The way she makes me smile
8) I could go on and on but most people know she is My Everything.

I Love My Michelle!

Take a look at our friend’s blog for some professional pics we took while out in Utah for our Anniversary.

One Year Anniversary

TJ and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary on July 6th. We're in Utah for the week, so TJ took me to The Garden Room Restaurant at the Joseph Smith Building for dinner. It was nice to spend a nice night out on the town together.
I'm so glad to have my TJ in my life. He's a wonderful husband and a great father to Brandon and Mason {and Puppy}. Some of my favorite things about TJ:

-He's a lot of fun and makes me laugh. We have a great time together.

-He's always willing to help out around the house.

-He could strike up a conversation with a brick wall and become "buddies" within 10 minutes.

-He's a big deal.

-He works very hard to support our family.

-Beneath the tough exterior, he's a softy.

-He loves me and I love my TJ.

Happy anniversary!

Fun with Nick and Jen

Nick and Jen, our good friends from AZ, came to visit us. We were so excited to see them, and we had a great, fun-filled, packed weekend with them. Jen flew in on Wednesday. Brandon and I picked her up from the airport and we went to Pearl Street Mall in Boulder to eat lunch and do a little shopping.

On Thursday, Jen and I played basketball at the park with Brandon and Mason and then did some more shopping. Nick arrived that night, and we met Nick and Paul at a tasty Italian restaurant in Denver called Pasquini’s.

On Friday, Nick, Jen, Mason, and I went to the pool. Jen and I enjoyed some sun while we watched Nick entertain Mason in the water. We then went to Red Rocks Amphitheater to show the Styer’s a great view of Denver. Later, we met up with Paul and walked around 16th Street Mall {great people watching}. We finished the night by eating yummy homemade ice cream from Bonnie Brae’s.

Saturday was packed with activities. We drove to Estes Park and hiked to Alberta Falls. It was breathtaking! After the hike, we drove over the Continental Divide to Grand Lake and then on to Winter Park. We had dinner and spent the night there. The next morning, we rented bikes and rode on a trail up to the ski lifts. TJ decided to buy a ticket to the top and mountain-biked down, only sustaining minor injuries. We drove back to Denver and our friends had to go home. We had the best time and can’t wait for them to come back again!
