Celebrating our 6-year anniversary!

Saturday was our 6th anniversary! We had such a great day hanging out together.

We started our day by taking the whole family out to breakfast. We tried out a place called Joe's Diner in Orem after Sean had seen really good reviews online. We LOVED it. "Joe" has a big personality and also happens to be the cook. Our food was awesome and we will definitely be back.

We did a little shopping in the afternoon. I was hoping to find a new purse to replace what I call my "duffel bag" because it is so huge. I didn't find one I liked (well, not one that was less than $180), but I did find a new pair of jeans! Sean also found some new shoes so it was a successful trip.

My sister babysat for us so we could go out to dinner. It's sort of become a tradition for us to go to The Roof in Salt Lake. The flowers are always out at temple square and we always have a great time. This year was no different-- beautiful flowers, really good food, and really great company ;) I was sort of worried that Sean wouldn't have much he'd be able to eat (since he is gluten free) but he was definitely not lacking in choices. There was a ton of stuff, including multiple desserts, and the chef personally made him anything he wanted. Sean can't stop talking about the salmon. I think I could have just eaten creme brulee all night!

It's been an awesome 6 years together and I'm looking forward to at least 60 more! :)

Scout trip to Zion National Park

Sean serves in the young men in our ward. They go on campouts all the time, but they went on a really cool one to Zion National Park a few weeks ago. They hiked to Angels Landing and did the "subway." For the subway they had to wear wetsuits because they had to swim in parts and the water is really cold. Sounded pretty intense! He said he had a great time and the scenery was amazing. Here are a few pictures from the trip:

Tulips & herbs

I snapped a picture of my tulips with my phone yesterday. They are my favorite flower and I needed a picture before they passed their prime! I wish they would last longer! I also planted a bunch of herbs in pots today-- it's never really worked out so well for me, but for some reason I'm giving it another go. Probably because the price they charge for fresh herbs like basil, rosemary, etc. is so irritating. I planted like seven different herbs. Maybe, just maybe, a few will work out this year!

Girls camp

So I am the new girls camp director for our ward! I was pretty surprised when I received the call, but I am very excited. We have some really cute and sweet girls in young women. Everyone keeps telling me it is a lot of work but also very rewarding. I really like everyone in the young women's presidency also so that is another score!

We're camping at Mutual Dell in American Fork Canyon, so very close to home. We're going mid-July and our camp theme is "Daughters of a King." I'm new to this so if any of you have any fun ideas or things you remember doing at camp that you loved, please let me know! It's funny because I don't feel like it has been that long since I was in young women and at camp myself.

My mom told me she'd help me out by coming and watching Jackson that week while Sean is at work. I am afraid I'm going to miss my boys like crazy, but it will be a good adventure for us all.

P.S. How awesome is 'Troop Beverly Hills?'
