These are a few of our favorite things...
Our trumpet flowers, the humming bird feeder (not so much the feeder, as the cute little birds it attracts) and... our new WINDOW UNIT!! We both had Monday off work and after switching from sitting in the house to out in the shade in the back yard most of the day, we decided it would be worth the money to have somewhere to keep us from going insane from the heat!

We're finally getting some color in our yard! I wish I could say I had much to do with it... but I don't. Nate is outside every night watering and planting flowers. My contribution is pretty much pulling weeds and complimenting him on how great it's looking. :)

We put a little patio area in the back of the yard in the shade; it's been nice to have somewhere to eat and relax out there.

Mose LOVES playing in the hose water!

We are trying out a new spot for another garden area this year, it gets a lot more sun so everything seems to be doing really well. We had a bunch of peas a few weeks ago, the lettuce has been great, but the season is coming to an end... as you can see. We should have a plethera of peppers and some strawberries, we're really excited!

Brigham City Temple

"At the temple the dust of distraction seems to settle out, the fog and the haze seem to lift, and we can 'see' things that we were not able to see before and find a way through our troubles that we had not previously known." —Boyd K. Packer

I thought that was a neat quote... We were so excited about the announcement in General Conference last fall of the temple coming to Brigham City!! I grew up in Brigham and both Nate's and my parents live there currently. I found this picture online ( and it made it seem so much more real! I can't wait for it to be built, it's going to be Beautiful!!
