It was the best of times, it was the worst of times

I think that this winter just might have been the most difficult one of my life.
Could you tell?
What with all my whining and crying and tv on dvd watching?
I could.

But I also thought that last summer might have been the hardest summer ever. And now I'm looking at summer photos thinking "things were better then. I'd like to go back to last summer and do it again."

Logically, either this winter was really that bad, or last summer really wasn't as bad as I thought - which would likely mean that this winter really wasn't as bad as I thought either. Only time will tell.

So, I'm tired of the funk, and in an honest attempt to pick-me-up, put on your walking shoes, and we'll stroll down memory lane. Also, I have it on good authority that putting on your walking shoes and strolling in real life will make it better. that too, OK?

2007 - My brother brings his family to Utah so naturally we must erect an enormous swingset.  That is my adult brother whose toes are hovering above the telephone pole. Perspective...but still!

2008 - Josh and I go on a cruise to Alaska. Josh forgets a tie apparently....

2009 - Josh & Amy (and baby in the belly) go camping.

2009 - Remember back when I took regular photos of my growing abdomen?  Even with the blurry face, this one might be my favorite.

2009 - Our first family picture.

2010 - We take 3-baby pictures at Thanksgiving Point! (Thomas & Lucy in back, Taege in the front.)

2010 - Wave running at Deer Creek with the Reilleys.
See? Don't you feel better about life now?


  1. You DO have a happy life! Yay!

  2. What I am noticing is that there is SUNSHINE in each of these pictures (except for your room in Alaska, but you were all dressed up, so that counts as a little bit of sunshine). There's a pattern.

    Here's to a beautiful upcoming summer!
